Time to clear up the parties situation once and for all. As far as I know. In the NGS, the party does not give you any bonuses. My arguments:
- 1 Esc - personal - character info - stat information. When you join the squad, nothing is added to the current effects
- 2 Esc - system-help - game guide - communication - party. There is no mention of receiving any bonuses. Like increasing experience.
In my opinion, the party system in NGS exists solely for the convenience of playing with friends. At the same time, there is absolutely no point in throwing invitations to random people. That's why the beacons were removed. They don't make sense anymore. But! There are certain doubts:
1 One person told me that in the closed beta, the Bonus existed and was displayed in the current effects. Perhaps its absence is an interface bug.
2 I don't have a premium. Perhaps the party bonus will only be available when it is active.
3 I also have no friends with whom we could check the exact numbers of the experience obtained with and without the party. But.. You have them, I know )
I too often see people coming to the location and looking for a party or throwing invites to everyone who is nearby, because they believe that if there is a bonus in the normal version, then it is also in the NGS. So, let's find the truth. If someone has verified information about this, share it.
