    Hopefully people who appreciate the fact that ESO owes its continued success to the fact it does NOT do most things like other MMOs, so they will not demand it start to do so, and thus doom the game.

    It says this is a single player game thing. I think that shows an ignorant view of what online multiplayer games should be.

    Forcing people to team rarely is a good thing. Encouraging people to group for challenges while remaining friendly to a solo experience is the ideal path.

    MMO does not mean Massively Multiplayer Forced Cooperation Online. it just means Massively Multiplayer Online game, which makes no mention of being FORCED to cooperate. forcing people to do things isnt something people want in a game. its un fun, people should play how they want.
