STO is not doing anything differently than any other online game. There are missions, quest, raids or whatever you want to call them that require you to be in a group. Those missions you mentioned are end game missions; they are missions that like any other mmo require the mission be done in a group.
I am not saying this to be insulting or offensive but if you want soloplayer content reroll an alt or play a single player game. You have to live with the fact that some missions will require a team and these missions require a team. These types of missions, that require team(s), have been in MMO games since EQ1 and those havenít been scaled down for soloplay.
Scientifically speaking, humans tend to rely on each other, grouping together in tribes, like most herbivores.
Carnivores tend to SOLO.
Carnivores are the top of the food chain = better to be a Carnivore.
humans think they are the top of the food chain, but they are actually a virus that destroys rather than conquers it's environment.
Without insults, choose what you wish to be.
Your information has nothing to do with your request for the end game missions to be solo-missions. This is a mmo game and like you speak of the nature of man the nature of mmo games are to have missions that require group(s) to finish the missions.
I don't think group content is a bad thing, but - my fleets are small, I like them that way, and have no desire to join other fleets. I barely play during main times, so it is hard to get a group sometimes. I would prefer a compromise - the option to set these missions to 2 or 3 players.
I have been an RA5 since the first of March and I have yet to do any of the end game missions mainly because of time constraints on my part. I request that the end game missions remain as they are. I except that these missions will not be done by me until I have a group that is large enough. I do not feel punished because these missions are group oriented and I canít solo these missions.
I know that even though I solo most of the time that if I want to get a group for these missions I can find a pug because while in Borg space I see groups forming for these missions all the time. I know that I am not being punished by not being able to do these missions because like me and other players who choose not to group these decisions for us not to group are our choices.
