ok so here is the thing
I WANT solo content engame because there will be days where I DO NOT want to raid. or PVP( dont do much of that anyways)
should i be punished for wanting to have a day to my self and go off on another adventure after my story is done.
should i be punished because a decent size of community wants to do nothing but raid
should i be punished because i had a bad day and do not really want to raid because i am just not focused on the task of raiding.
I agree this is a MMO game but you also must remember the WORDING of MMO massively MULTI-PLAYER online game.
there are MORE than just raiders in this game and not ALL of us want to be constrained endgame with nothing to do because a portion of the community says that raids should be the end all of endgame. solo PLAYERS want to do something OTHER than raid. some of you say why pay $15 a month to play a solo game, well here is a good reason. that $15 is for playing BOTH solo and GROUP content, the soloists out there want MORE than just raid and pvp endgame, and also here is a familiar phrase "its my $15 a month I will play how i want to play". and you cant use that well its the other peoples money that decide how you play because again its SOLO so it does not concern you.
remember this is a MMO there are more than just RAIDERS who want to have fun in this game and not be stuck sitting in Coruscant or Dromand Kass with thumbs up our arse because we just do not feel like raiding or banging our heads on keyboards from frustration of doing the same daily OVER and OVER and OVER and OVER im sure you guys get the point by know.
that GOD awful system is what killed my love of wow. same dailies, same heroics, same raids, all of the same day after day. TOR has a wonderful opportunity to take its story driven success and keep content rolling for BOTH the raid and solo comnunities.
now as i stated in the SWTOR thread of the same discussion NO abolutly NO should we get raid quality gear from doing solo endgame IF it is something that will be done. if you want to solo then solo, but do not expect to get raid quality gear for doing long and challenging SOLO content.
I myself would LOVE LOVE LOVE solo story endgame content for my trooper and BH cuz i mean really the story does not have to end just cuz we hit lvl 50
I will be a soloist in this game and will raid for the fun of grouping up and doing something great as a team, but there will be days where i do not want to raid and just go kill some Sith screwballs for the sake of killing and would like to have some purpose to it other than killing for fun
