Yes, this hampered the "bonding with the community" issue. But the numbers of players who began using the content skyrocketed. In fact, when they added the raid finder recently, record numbers of players took up raiding.

You can't force being social on people by withholding game mechanics. You CAN get more people to play the game if game mechanics make certain play more accessible.

I have done zero flashpoints and only one heroic because I can't stand spamming chat channels in hopes of getting a nibble. If we had a button to click to get me into one without an hour of prep work, finding people to play with and travelling (or waiting for them to travel), I would do that all the time.

Guess what...this is how some people BECOME social. By meeting people this way, joining their guilds and adding to friends lists. Some people are shy or sensitive or merely less bold and gregarious than others. Let's get them into the game too!

Definitely needs something. 10 year old games handled this better than swtor currently does.

No one in my guild was online, so I tried to get a group together for False Emperor. Took over 30 minutes.

WoW did it awesome, there was no sense of community lost (at least from Release-WotLK, which is when I played). I would often recognize people who were looking for a group.
