Sure you can join up with randoms, and hope lady luck picks a decent group. Like my previous post said, my one time with a random seemed ok. Though I forgot to mention I could hear party member's domestic in the background and him yelling at his dad over downloads -_-
I wasn't objecting to anything in your post - I read it. I was just saying that once you reach a certain gear score - it becomes really easy to solo CHALLENGING modes - I have a hard time with missions in high level areas, solo, but the missions in lower level areas are easier, there's more cover etc - when you get to the higher level missions cover becomes harder and sometimes space becomes an issue, fighting in tight spaces etc.
Missions are soloable - or eventually become it with better gear etc. So often in groups etc you hear people gloat how they just managed to complete a particular mission solo, so it's definitely a thing people try do. Solo really depends on your gear score. (Like Destiny and light levels)
Yeah - I tend to ignore whatever is going on with players mics etc. I'm generally not fussed with who I get matched with. So long as they can play and aren't screwing me around - I'll tollerate whatever BS is coming through their mic, because I know once the mission is complete, it's goodbye. Sometimes you end up meeting like minded cool people who you then add and try play with again.
Incursions are tedious - but it doesn't take long before you play with a group who have either completed it, or will cheeze it or will have a decent attempt. Currently, incursion is the toughest thing in the game. Finding a group who can complete it can be tough. Very tough.
I actually wonder if the incursion uses some sort of RNG... in the sense that 1 in every 10 attempts is easier than the other 9.
Like a crane game.. When a group is formed - your success is determined before you even enter the incursion lol.
