realistically, a guild would raise funds and purchase a guild ship (think large destroyer with all kinds of battle stations and a landing bay with tons of fighter jets parked inside) and everyone has a role to play. I've already seen guilds doing this. You cant buy the $2500 ship and just fly it around by yourself. As is, in the current alpha release, even flying the smaller "fire fly" style ships around by yourself isnt a greeaat idea. I mean you can get by, but your not able to defend yourself or attack others that well.
the current state of the game is kind of buggy. You fly around in a decently sized area of space with a few planets and a few dozen stations. exploring them and fighting other players is pretty fun. I've really enjoyed grouping up with others and sneaking into the space station that assault rifles are stored in. Once you have one of those you can fly around and visit other stations scouting for players to ruthlessly gun down. Flying around a space station in my space suit is especially enjoyable. space ship battles are pretty intense. the audio and visual graphics are completely amazing. things are just generally beautiful in the game.
$45 gets you the basic starter package. a ship with a couple of guns that will allow you to cruise at .2 light speed. Sometimes it goes on sale for $30. it also gets you full access and whatnot.
$200 gets you a firefly style ship. cargo bay. a docked fighter jet. and room for 4 of your pals to join you and help.
If you love science fiction shit, this game is going to be the biggest game for that genre to date.
