@baboonized Right, so I stand in the gateway ship, and wait for randoms to show up, potentially on a work schedule, where I have maybe a couple hours to game at best, and waste most of my game time doing so. My only other options are to try to talk to the otherwise non social players on ship, and selfishly ask if they would be kind enough to take time out of their day, to help me with something, likely not apart of their plans, or the social lobby warriors that play only on Urgent quests, as they already burned through all of the content. Great ideas all around.
Edit: One last thing, the only time someone joins my party when I drop a party beacon, is during urgent quests. Random people usually can't be bothered otherwise.
