I don't want to make friends. I don't want to do things with the same people every time. I don't want to have to make a long friends list of tanks/healers to nag when I log in, nor do I want to be forced to play a tank/healer/buffer in order to get groups within 20-30 minutes.
I've *had* it with sitting LFG for 3-4 hours on end trying to get groups done as an undesirable class. That's why the dungeon finder's so great. I get stuck in a group of people that are there for the same end goal and I never have to see them again if they're jackwagons. Someone rage quits? Great. Replacement in minutes without having to go back to town and advertise for another hour.
No need to join a super huge guild full of faceless numbers in order to have a central pool of people to do anything with.
No need to join a guild full of people I don't like to raid. Flat out said it. I join raid guilds because of their progression, not because of the people in it. I find nice people I get along with in the game suck at the game and I don't have the desire to help them get better, nor the patience for it.
This game's spoiled me.
And single player games are absolutely ridiculously boring.
So you're basically saying you don't want to be social in a game that revolves around social activity.
Excuse me, my logic just went esplode there...
And how are single player games boring when that's basically what you're doing in MMOs, playing it as a single player game? You don't want to group with people, you don't want to socialize with people, you don't want to make friends within the game, you don't want to join a guild, you don't care about your guildmates as long as it benefits you, it's fine, you don't want to help people get better at the game... Seriously, your game play is basically the exact same of playing a single player RPG.
I mean, I played some games in the past that freaking REQUIRED for everything to do in a group (Dark Ages by Nexon, NexusTK, RO to some degree, FFXI when it first launched), and that was extreme even for me. I don't like games where unless you're in a group, you can't do anything. But you're on the other end of this extreme, where you don't want to do anything with anyone at all.
There has to be some sort of balance between solo play and group play. If everything was solo play, there would be no point in playing a game with a bunch of other people on a server, there would be no reason to have a server full of people, because that's what single player RPGs are.
I can understand not wanting to socialize once in a while in MMOs, there are days where I just feel like doing my own thing. But all the time, I don't think so.
Sorry, but you are REALLY playing the wrong type of games if you don't want to socialize at all in a MMO. Heck, I can't even name a single MMO where all you do is solo play.
