Seriously what is the point of an MMO if you can't play with your friends, or show off your stuff to your friends without having to do a zoning dance.
Zoning is a technical issue the users should not have to worry about.
I don't understand why Cryptic wanted to go the "single server" route. The point of a single server would be so that everyone from around the world could mingle and have fun together. However having all the instances rips that novelty to shreds, especially if people in your group get assigned to separate instances.
I'm not sure how the community of CoH/CoV has evolved to handle this, I can't imagine there is much of a community at all outside of guild buddies.
I think it would have been a better idea to have a "multiple server" model where users can choose which server they want to create a character on. Then from there, split regions or sectors or whatever into separate servers. Then reserve instances to fleet encounters and massive large scale battles.
As it stands now, I have not run into the same person or have been grouped with the same person in ST:O yet.
Just my 2 cents which in all honesty may be worth half a cent.
/Love the game.
