Seems like a waste of having a planet as big as earth as they have said.

There's plenty of lore for this and it's perfectly viable.

 

When you're in a group the entire world scales for the group in difficulty.  They let you take people with you on your group quest (where they can come and go as they please) or you can do specific group quests that can be postponed and resumed later by the entire group (from what they've said).

 

All worlds scale to who's in them and the group ones are probably going to be much more difficult and require grouping.. sounds like fun if you're into that.

 

Personally I'd rather come and go as I please and play with my friends for a while or on my own without being forced to do anything.  Too many years of MMO forced grouping jaded me.  I love to group but I don't want to be sitting on my arse while waiting for one.

Don't quote me on this but I believe there will be plenty of lore in the community worlds. You are forgetting one point, is that apart from your personal quests which you do in other reflected worlds on your own or with a small group, there is a grand story for the game as a whole, since history moves forward and events happen regardless where you play or even if you're online.. the lore will always be there and advance towards a grand climax for the whole world.

I think players may be getting a little hung up on the full planet thing.  It's really much more like real life than you think.  How much of the real earth did you see today?  Or this week, or this  month?  I bet most of you were in a fairly small area of that big planet earth.

The game is like that, there is a big world out there, sure, but you will likely spend quite some time in a much smaller area, only moving onto new parts of the world now and then.

But, back to your concern about group play.  First off, even on Story RWs, you can party up with up to eight players, which is equal to or greater than many MMO games, so not 'solo'.  And when you want to work together with lots of other groups on a big objective, we offer that too.  Go to a Community world, get involved with some of the speicalized game play we offer just for multi-group cooperation.  Not good enough, then join a campaign which is kind of like a large raid.  There many types of mutigroup and multiplayer game play options for when you want that, and also smaller group epic and deep stories for when you want that, what we believe is the best of BOTH worlds.

I guess we'll have to wait for alpha stage of the game to see if it's a sanbox/themepark or whatever. So far i like what i hear about the game and i pladged a few bucks on kickstarter page and i hope they can get 700k for them to start alpha testing.

I actually still like MMORPGs

I just prefer living in a single world I guess. I don't like the idea of instance hopping. I get that you can invite people to play with you, but I like I play solo sometimes while still having an active community of players around me doing there thing as well. I don't wanna be soloing in my own planet until I feel like doing group content.

Will community planets have any room for solo players/small groups? Or is that limited to large scale content only?

Nothing stops a solo player from going into a Community world, all community means is lots of players present.  The only difference is that you won't be doing the massive RPG type story quests, which would not be possible, since so much of the world is involved in such a story.  There are lots of other kinds of game play avialable there though.
