I am a new player, I believe reaching first week now and I been going through the AIR thing and so far its actually pretty nice. It gives me purpose and lets me dabble into different things and experience them. And most things you can do solo so that’s fine as a new player you usually don’t start with any friends to call upon or play with. At least for me that is the case.
I really love that “Opportunities” thing and the one thing that has been staring in my face and I really wanna try is “Homefront Operations”.
The thing is that you need more people for that and I have no friends (yet). I tried to go to the system and write a few times spread over a few hours to see if there were any locals that were interested in joining. I even asked once in rookie chat, see if there are other curious players but that seems more for asking questions instead so I didn’t bother too much.
And then there is the “homefront operations” channel that I got from a rookie chatter but even though there are 40 people in there, nothing much is happening at all. Maybe bad luck who knows.
Anyways to come to a conclusion and my piece of feedback that I would have liked to see is a system where you can sign up for some “opportunity”. Something like a matchmaking thing or LFG/Lobby whatever to easily fleet up and do something with random people who also wanted to do that thing.
If its easier for new players to group together for a certain group activity when they don’t really have friends yet to play with, and/or local chat or whatever isn’t really working. This would have been a nice alternative way to do content. And I don’t know, maybe you could do something like this with other content too but I just wanted to mention this specific thing as this in particular states you need 4-5 people to do it.
well, just wanted to share some feedback from a new player perspective.
with kind regards
