To avoid letting down your friends, you are obligated to play when you don't want to.
"there is a chat function for the group you are in and people comment there as goals can only be achieved through collective play"
"very slight feelings of obligation; the social interaction is extremely minimal and simple ("visit" somebodys town and leave a small bonus reward for them), but still notable enough to feel as if it matters."
"I myself don't feel this bc i literally could care less about my tribe lmao but i do know other people experience this"
"Guilds will remove players for inactivity (some for less than a day of inactivity)"
"Yes, if you are in a functional club that emphasize teamwork during Playground of destiny, you will feel obligated, also the game has a really nasty habit of announcing club related events that requires teamwork & preparations only around 24 hours beforehand, take note that this type of event determines your club rank cross server."
"There is strong competition amongst players within the discord server and other channels. It's hard to compete when the game locks you out with the stamina system, or when you don't have specific songs."
