You shouldn't take it personal. For myself i can say that I solo probably 98% of the time because i have 3 kids, the youngest being 3. I don't think it's fair to a group to ask them to wait when i suddenly have to go AFK.

Also, as mentioned by others, try the whisper first. If some one asks me to join, i say no and explain why. If i just get a request then I just decline. So the way you ask dictates the response you get.

Why?

Even if your not interested in turning in the quest togather grouping at the very least allow for mob sharing.

So explain to me why people outright refuse to group for a couple of min get the rewards then leave:S

It just doesnt make sense.
Perhaps people want to enjoy the storyline for their character, and don't like to have everyone in the group yelling about "SPACEBAR!!!" I've grouped with some folks that were just fine. I've grouped with others that were total jackwagons. Usually, I choose to solo unless I'm almost finished on a planet.

I for one prefer to solo as then I can do it the way I want, not having to concern myself if the other person is finished with the same task, or having to adapt to their speed, waiting for them or anything such. Playing solo is so much more relaxing

Because I'm tired of ninja-looters and people who are rude. I'd rather wait five extra minutes for the clicky/boss to respawn than lose out on good gear because someone wants it for their blasted companion.

I'll group, sometimes -- but usually only with friends, and NEVER from blind invites. If you can't be bothered to at least whisper me first why should I bother accommodating you?

Very True!

However, my wife and I have found a new way to game together and bond... It may be boring grouped for class and planet quest battles, but the pleasure of playing together is a huge positive. We can do all the Heroic 2+'s (green, yellow, orange) and many of the 4's without others while still green...

I also think there are way too few drops for anymore to join us, why bother doing a huge heroic 4 to only wind up with a single green drop? If there is anything lacking in this game, is the drops for the larger Heroics.... Does not make for much of an incentive for a group of more then 2 people. We get asked from others to join us, expecially when they see us kick some rear in a heroic 4, but we decline, even if its too hard for us paired.... In a way, its sad, but we want the drops for US and not interested in sharing... They want improved group play, they need more drops, expecially the orange ones and then maybe we will be more open to a group of more then just us 2 for heroic 4's.... We wont do any grouping for the 2's, the game is easy with us paired, so its refresing to have a nice challenge with the heroics to keep us "sharp".

People may say, but what about orange drops for classes we do not play, yep, I want those too, to sell on GTN and make some money.... we do not want to share when there is so few drops in orange to begin with.

Man no kidding. I HATE it when I have to PUG and someone keeps shouting that. My reply is, if you want to rush through this then please go back to WOW. This is a ROLE PLAYING GAME, not a friggin speed contest. Idiots are probably the biggest reason players don't like grouping anymore.

For the original poster, if you love grouping so much then join a guild. You can't expect total strangers to group at your whim.

I just started playing the game. I'm a lvl 13 Mercenary and I'm having trouble with the mission where you have to kill the Sith woman and the one where you have to get the Mandalorian guy at his camp. If i group with someone else, do we each get the reward from it?
