No clans , no groups , no official LFG ?

★ Apprentice

How is this game going to work ? We are like 2-3 weeks away from the official launch and there is no word about this .As it stands now it looks worse then grouping up on Destiny for the ps4/xbox atleast that shitefest had a website acting like a 3dparty app.

It seems to me like they want to do that for you..they want to place you in random groups to fill spaces. Im not for sure about VOIP or whatever it is that theyre wanting to use for communication but not test driving that in these demos is a potential catastrophe.

I also think its a mistake to under estimate the humans potential for xenophobia. Most folks want to play with friends and if they're forced to play with someone they don't know, they at least want to be able to communicate with them.

You can find some information here:

 

***

 

The Alliance System – “What is That & How Does it Work?”

 

The Alliance system is a way for you and your friends to be rewarded for playing the game. Anytime you complete an expedition (Mission, Contract, Freeplay, Stronghold) you earn experience. That experience also goes into the Alliance system. Even better, the experience from the OTHER people in your group also goes into the alliance system. Even better STILL, players on your friends list who play without you - THEIR experience also goes into the Alliance System.

 

At the end of every week, you are awarded Coin (our in-game earned currency, used to purchase various items throughout the game) based on how much experience was contributed to the Alliance System. There are several tiers you can work through each week as well as a weekly cap. We want to encourage players to form friendships and play together and we’ve created the Alliance System to do just that!

 

Guilds – “What About Those?”

 

The short answer is, Guilds will not be available at launch. While we believe the Alliance System is a great way to encourage social interaction with Anthem, we also understand Guilds play a critical role in helping players form organized groups with people of similar interests and play styles. Our goal is to release guilds as soon after launch as we can. Details on timing will come as soon as we have our plan locked in. We want this to be awesome.

If you check out the source, there is some more information in the answers in the comments.

At least they are intending to put in a guild system.

 

It would be a mistake not too.

A guild system without a proper chat system makes me weep though. It's probably going to be terrible.

We know guilds are in the pipeline for soonish after launch.

 

In the meantime, I'm finding plenty of randoms to play with because of the matchmaking.

 

There are also groups, forums, and Discords falling over themselves to 'recruit' friends to play with, and I can see those friends I've connected to very readily in the menu screen.

 

Like the OP it'll be nice to see the official guilds rolled out, but for the time being, I think we'll be fine. Standard smile

The game is good, your intentions are the real garbage here.

Go to Destiny 1/2 or Warframe if these games are more in your favor.

I love the game it has it flaws but overall i like the artstyle and i love the flying and meleebombattacks Standard smile
