@GamerSeuss Not true. MMOs have always been about multiplayer - for example working together for crafting (unless u have lots of alts), kill some legendary bosses, do dungeons etc.
U can change things in single player games too. Thats a feature, not a game. But u can t change much in fractured anyway ? this is not a sandbox mmo.
Playing a multiplayer game with minimal contact to other players is ur choice playing the game (single-player / co-op games could offer better storylines though) - but an mmo had and has always been about challenges for groups, the only question is how much of the game is for solo/group play
In the end this is just game design to give towns some worth - if u could do all on ur own in ur house in the middle of nowhere there would be zero point to player-settlements and no reason to conquer/destroy them.
So far fractured is lacking multiplayer content. I hope that alot more will be added later.
In my opinion it might be better to get rid of the houses in the wild- or let them beeing attacked constantly by roaming monsters so that players have to overcome a challenge (together)
