Me and my friend decided to play STO together for the opening night, we were both in the same room and I had invited him in to my party (or team I dunno whatever you want to call it). Now about 80% of the time we ended up in the same instance, the other 20% we did not making it impossible to do stuff like starbase 24, the patrol missions and so on.
How do the instances work when you are playing with someone? do you both need to join right at the exact same time to enter the same system? does it only work if the same server has 2 spaces available? is it just luck?
I would have expected more people to be having this issue, or are most people doing it alone?
