After a few years of Rail Nationing(?), I've seen lots of different playstyles and I thought this would actually make a great topic!
What are the different playstyles and why is it good to know the goals of other players? What would you add to the list or to the descriptions?
These are just examples with random names I gave.
Solo: 1 person in his/her own team. No one else gets in.
Freehaulers: Solo players in a team, members situated all around the map. Small perks from team, and keeping complete freedom. It can be extremely fun to meet another freehauler from the same asso in a random city, and make the most of the situation before continuing.
Just 4 fun team: More organized than Freehaulers, still room to make solo decisions but also accepting the help and perks friends can give you. Using the same cities, main focus being 'let's all have fun'. Each member makes a decision will they follow a plan or strategy or not, but usually they will since it will benefit each member.
Management team: Leaders and followers. Each member has a job to do, and goals come from top. Members follow the rules, and those who don't will be removed. Everyone has the same chances of reaching the top as a group that holds everything and everyone together.
Pro team: Trying different strategies together round after round. Use and share deep strategies and tools, co-working with other teams. Goal is to find all the secrets and strategy combinations it takes to be number 1 and the very best.
