Agreed to all of the above. Seven year vet here, and I think it strikes a great balance between solo and team. (Heck, I managed to level my first main, a defender - that is, a normally team-oriented buffer with some attacks, like a Discipline priest - while solo at least half the time, just because I wanted to go at my own pace and read all the then-new mission text.)

I wouldn't buy or play an MMO where solo play wasn't good. Some guilds are small, sometimes your hours to play change, etc. Not always convenient to play in a group.

I want to have SOMETHING to do when I'm either stuck flying solo, or don't want to bother with other people atm.

I think Vanguard's diplomacy system was awesome for this. I could go do diplomacy missions while I waited for my friends to log on or finish something up so we could go do something together.

Definitely. Especially when you're UNABLE to find a group, due to your choice of class or other.

Grouping is fun and there should be content that requires multiple people to complete. However, it should be accessible enough through the game/class design that certain players aren't always getting rejected from groups on the basis of their class. Basically punishing a player for their class choice - when you start playing a game, you shouldn't have to be choosing your class based on what will get you invited to a group.
