This game lacks servers and worlds. As soon as you meet someone in a public space, they evaporate into the ether as both of you transition to a new instance. Clans, events, communities are only observed in limited places. A clan is something you only see in PVP or online through streaming. Other than that, they are in their own world and exist as a name on a banner. My experience in FFXI as a solo player was a world filled with people sharing clan icons. I could repeatedly observe them doing activities together. Eventually, they'd see me and invite me in. We were able to chat through a keyboard or use tools to communicate through voice. In destiny there are very limited levels of interaction. You are solo, you are in a team without a mic, or you're in an activity with a microphone. I think the solo community wants more meaningful activities they can successfully do that doesn't require a full meet and greet. Some only have limited time or commitments where engaging in verbal communication wouldn't be the best option. Let's face it, it can be horribly awkward. You have the kid who's yelling at his mom. The dog that barks. The guy that's horribly ignorant. And the dude that won't stop talking. This is all just to do an activity you wished didn't require this level of conversation. They middle ground is missing. It's all in or nothing.
