Re: Star Trek: Online
Admitting I'm too lazy to read through the whole thread, how vital is team play to the game experience? Can you play straight through to endgame solo if you so choose?
The reason I have never stayed with any MMO is the group requirement. I have a job, kids, friends... when I get three hours a week to game I DON'T want to spend it trying to put a group together and then get to fight 3 mobs before I have to log out.
I'm the same way (1 kid, 1 on the way) and I like how STO has handled it so far. I haven't needed to team, but occasionally during a space battle I'm put into an instance with other players who are trying to accomplish the same goal. It's auto-teaming and it can be disabled if you so choose.
