Useless comments are useless. Honestly, I could even go as far as saying that this sort of attitude is a large part of the OPs problem.

Like someone else has already said, if the end game multiplayer stuff hasn't been working out so well for you, you still have plenty to do. Put your two level 50s on hold for a while, and go on to one of the other class stories... maybe spend some more time doing Heroics with others while you're leveling. If you pay attention to the General channel while you're leveling, then you should eventually see someone trying to get a group together for some Heroic or other... keep an eye out, and sign up when you see someone asking for help, even if it means abandoning a solo quest for a little while. And, don't forget to make use of the Friends list to keep tabs on anyone you work well with... or, join a guild, if the opportunity comes up. That way, the next time you get to 50, you could have a list of players already built up that you know you enjoy playing with.

Also, there's bound to be more soloable content, eventually. Makeb is supposed to be mostly soloable, I think... so, if you have to, just hold out for that. Either way, there's still plenty of other stuff to do, besides the end game multplayer content.

Skyrim is that way >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>

You arent getting "punished" once you get to level 50, if you think it is, you self-administered the punishment by choosing not to engage in the end-game content.

Sure, if you had a couple bad experiences it could get to you, but don't let it poison your well. Put them on ignore and never worry about grouping with them again. For the most part, I've had good experiences with grouping up.

You could always, like an above poster said, start another class story. But a punishment, it most definitely is not.

You guys who are commenting that "You are playing an MMO" stuff are exactly the kinds of people he doesn't want to interact with. You take Ops stuff way too seriously, and i suspect you treat other players like garbage in game, just like you are doing in this thread.

Yea, as been said, join a guild. They will likely be more patient and will help you learn mechanics

So you're essentially saying, the OP is avoiding playing with other people because of people like me who believe that in an MMO, the game is essentially designed to play with other people?

Come on, the damn guy is pissing and moaning because he's "punished" with nothing to do at 50 cause he's playing by himself. MMO, learn your acronyms.

Don't let a couple bad groups spoil your fun! This is my first MMO and the vast majority of ppl I've grouped with have been nice and helpful - but yep, there have been some jerks and ignoramuses. But the good far outweighs the bad.

The difficulty is that it's impossible to make enough solo content to keep anyone occupied in the long term. It's simply not possible to design that content to a point where it takes a good chunk of time to get through it, unless you make it incredibly boring (kill 10,000 of X type of thing). The reason they focus on group and multigroup content is because they can design for a certain accepted composition and gear/skill level, and they can design it with features that take time to figure out and overcome. With three separate types of roles, you can't really do that for a single player.

I agree with others here. If you're interested in giving the game added longevity, try to find a good guild of like minded folks. It may take a few tries, but unless you're a total antisocial hermit, they're out there. Good luck.

Many people, who are experts in these FP can be greedy, impatient, or just plain mean. I do have a friend who I play with, but of course 2 are not enough to complete these FP (even though JK and Warriors my favorite types, in my opinion, they are the weakest of all classes).

I know that MMO games are all about playing with others online, but sometimes this doesn't work out for us loners who prefer not get hashed by the bullies. It would be nice to make the FP in such way that 2 can play and have the game adjust to the twosome's capabilites, and maybe complete it twice to get the same items as one group of 4 can get in one try.
You could consider joining a guild. Those typically have like minded people in them with purpose and a sense of community.

Actually from what I read the Op has tried to group with people but found the pugs very rude and would rather not group with with people like that. Not once in the post does she/he say or complain that you shouldn't play with others just the experience has not been great.

She/he never said she/he was punished just that she/he wishes there were better ways instead of grouping with rude and disrespectful people.

Op: Like has been said before try finding a good guild or some friends you like and run with them. It willl make the experience a lot more rewarding and fun.

Yeah, you should've seen the Imps on last night on Ilum randomly attacking non PVP Republic players as they were doing Dailies. We finally ganged up and beaten them back.
