I know there is no real grouping ... yet.

But perhaps we can every now and then group up and do some event ?

Wolfpack tactics will still be possible :-)
Like taking out Anaconda's or Python's together and reap those huge bounties.

The grouping doesn't work too well as you can be put into different instances when you jump.

Meeting up can be hit and miss, there's more chance in quieter sectors of meeting and bounties will only be given to one person as they can't be split between players.

Yeah, that's why we're waiting on Frontier to properly implement the group/wing mechanic so we can get together and venture out into the darkness as a group and take on larger bounties etc.

Although I did manage a 148,000 cr bounty on an Anaconda last night (with a bit of help from Security forces)

There is an option: group play (besides solo and open) .. maybe if we use gaz's group it should be only us with npcs in the verse .. maybe that's worth a try!

Group play is your group and AI, no other players which is rubbish in an MMO type of game.

If they had Group missions, then I could understand having it, but it's basically a Solo mode with Friends with no risk of player interaction.

Grouping/Wings are meant to be a priority for this year, so we hope to have something patched in sooner, rather than later.

We're just scratching the surface with regards the game and how it'll work. Group content in conflicts will be really cool. AKA MMO-style Raids in space

you can influence the instance you get put in and join one another. When the first player drops out of FS the following target his FS wake and disengage on it. That way you end up in the same instance.

Well we can still do "private group" mode.
yeah we won't encounter other human players.
but we still get good fights.

and you can freely swtich between open, private group and solo at any time if i am correctly informed.

I think the best bet for group play would be to hop into a conflict zone together. Pretty much there is no content for any kind of group play... Or if someone is interested in piracy seek me out and we can have some fun robbing NPCs and PCs.

Wings will be released in Beta form soon (ish) and will be available to everyone who was in the Beta for the game. It'll be available to all after the beta test for free
