Deep space encounter's
Ok so when your in a group of 5 and want to to join an instance in a group it dosent even give you the option it just splits you up and puts you in separate 5 man instances. instead of making a new one just for your group. is it just me or dose this kinda defeat the whole purpose of have groups in a game.

i really hope Cryptic fixes this otherwise this is almost game breaking as its just makes you have to play by your self. and considering this game advertises how group oriented it is this is just retarded.

Really it still does that? i thought that would have been changed for sure by today.

Yeah, it still does it. Took us a good 20 minutes to just get into an instance with each other.

yeah it kinda defeats the whole point of a 5 man group if you can enter a *5* man instance together wasn't that the whole point of them

Agreed. Its a big annoyance. To me, this is a pretty big problem that needs to be sorted quickly.

There's a number of issues that occur as a result of this:

1) Group members get spread across different copies of that particular Deep Space sector.
2) When a group member enters one of the systems, the sector space icon disappears and the other members don't necessarily get any immediate prompt to enter the same system.
3) It appears that a prompt only appears when the instance icon reappears in system space and you are close it.

At least if everyone were in the same copy of Deep Space, then we have a chance of sticking together.
