What the hell did you expect? It is an online, multiplayer SURVIVAL game; similar to Rust or 7 Days To Die. You can't compare this game to World of Warcraft or Guild Wars 2, it is completely different. Your goal is, quite literally, to survive. To be more specific to Fallout 76, your goal as a member of this highly important vault, is to survive and rebuild civilization.
Maybe this wouldn't feel so bad if I couldn't equate living in Mirage Park with living outside of Oakland, CA. The map makes no sense to me, you go from "affordable housing" to "completely-unaffordable-for-the-average-sim"-- Where's the in-between?
