It is really just that simple.

We should also take into account that virtually everything you do at end-game requires you to do so in a team environment. If people do not wish to interact beyond that they should not be required to. Forcing me to go to DS9 does not mean I need to talk to anyone while there; and, in fact, few players do. Most of us are talking on ventrillo or teamspeak or some other service when we really want to spend our time socialize in game.

I'm sorry I didn't explain my thoughts clearly my bad

My statement of poor social interaction and vendors
Ment that a npc vendor I'n the first place is bad for social interaction
I'n the first place and now that's going away I'n si far as it drew
People together sovthey could interact

The first 3 years of Star wars galaxies had a player driven economy
Anything you needed you had to get from another player

You developed a relationship with your local or guild vendors

Many player created missions revolved around getting
The elite resources these merchants needed so us pvpers
Could pwn each other.
It went much deeper though
We build player citys , clothing weapons armor starships
Basically everything we got.

Some players were hunters supplying chefs and tailors
Some ran. Mineral extractors supplying weapons smiths

Ect ect ect all of this caused and required a lot of player
Interaction amd it was very fun and was excellent end game content

It's a pity this game didn't copy that model it was the best
Mmo I have ever played
Jellico....Engineer.....Stargazer KDF Tac
Saphire.. Science.....Ko'el Rom Kdf Tac
Leva........Tactical.....Mailu KDF Sci
