Currently, public games only serve ONE purpose. For random group MP0 farming, and that's about it. It's a complete mess. You've got 3 people that want to run 3 different routes, all going skitter-scatter and one poor guy who just wants to level his new char on the games mission and didn't realize that everyone else is just mega-speed farming.
It is an utterly broken system. Quite sad really.
I visit pub games with my alts time to time to drop off free items. I actually don't see people scatter that often, but there are people who are absolutely clueless and just wander around with the group.
TBH; I haven't done pubs in a long time (Maybe 1.03). It was pretty messy then and my above post is more or less what I imagine has become of pub games since there is no MP level available. I should've been clear on that. I can only imagine the horrors.
I have plenty of (active) friends to play with and I do Ubers nightly, avoiding the rando experience. Most of my friends I meet as friends of friends that happen to be in-game.
Anyone wanting to play (US) is more than welcome to whisp me in-game and I'd be happy to have them join-up.
