Meant to add to this as well…I’ve seen enough improved between the demo and the early access version to update my original stance, where I was going to likely wait for a month or so before buying the full game, to buying it this week (once I figure out which store). I really enjoy the core gameplay, and I will be going slow enough that the bugs can mostly be tolerated. I’m going to adopt the tactic of playing story missions solo once, and then occasionally spending some time in quickplay for a group fix. I’m still a bit concerned about quickplay because there’s some serious issues with it (the getting put into non-completed missions as mentioned above, and frequently getting put into bugged expeditions that can’t be completed), but hopefully those are at the top of the fix list.
Storm makes this approach kind of challenging, as it’s harder to solo in. I spend a lot of time picking things off at range and ducking into cover waiting for shields/abilities to recharge. But I’m not far from level 8, so I can switch to a Colossus for solo/story and Storm for quickplay group fun. The other nice thing about that is that it will help me keep them both geared.
