Luke, playing solo, interacting with people, private/public worlds are mutually exclusive from one another. I think our biggest issues as alpha players is we aren’t fully understanding your direction and goals. So we each have our own needs we are trying to advocate. For some of us (like me) it is more helpful to understand your direction and I can give advice and experiences from that in relation to the game.
I should not have to pay for a private server or solution to be able to mine resources, craft, build, and visit worlds. I shouldn’t have to rely on people others. Or course I want to play with people and will do what I can with others but you can’t make it a requirement in the game especially because of real life. People don’t work that way… people break plans and go on breaks, etc… You can’t expect me to have to navigate all these things just to play a game.
Me having the ability to have skills that continue to escalate has nothing to do with being not fair to other people. If you are trying to protect from a person being able to solo a Titan, then communicate that and we can have a discussion around that. Also if you want to keep people for being able to solo a titan then stop developing fancy absolutely cool doors, poles, fences, and release true MMORPG functionality where we all need to be classed accordingly to fight a titan. But, remember even in WOW you could do EVERYTHING alone unless you wanted to fight a big boss. That was the only game play that was restricting… you all are restricting more.
