The problem with stellaris MP

I'll split this up into 3 parts called: The Platform ; The Problem ; The Proposal

The Platform - Stellaris as a game
Stellaris is a deceptively complicated game. In truth, it is just a GUI over a spreadsheet, passed thru an RNG generator and spread over a rock-paper-scissor gameplay. This is an excellent platform for endless hours of fun... as long as it is set in the right frame. Put in the wrong frame, it is just... awful. In some ways, it'll be worse than singleplayer. Why?
Because it's just a platform.

Stellaris has no "objectives" and "plans" and "missions" or any other mechanic meant to steer the player than any other PDOX game.

In EU4 you have missions, edicts (or whatever those things are called which let u turn from one tag to another) and victory cards to help steer the player and, thru these simple mechanics, generate intrigue and gameplay stories.
In Vicky2 you had those edicts/national goals, you had population of your nationality to integrate to steer your path to conquest and certain mechanics like tension (flashpoints) which lead to crisis which lead to great war and can make and break alliances.
Etc.

Stellaris has none of those. Acumulate planets (planets = pops), accumulate chokepoints and, in lategame, accumulate megastructures are just the equivalent of "get more provinces" in the other pdox games.

If you want compelling, interesting stories and scenarios, the player must provide those. In SP, the player is just 1 / X many empires and all those empires have their own personalities and you stand out like a sore. "The Imperium Of Man" themed from 40k stands next to "Yl'Khahan Combine" or "Cevelli Tranquil Mandate" (literally had to boot up the game to go to random generate them coz I couldn't think of them) or some shit that nobody remembers. That's why nobody remembers the names of nations in Stellaris.

This is what the Stellaris Platform is. Now playing on such a platform can be fun, but I have been trying to make the Proposal that the most amount of fun you can have on such a platform is thematic. Think of it as costume parties just with less alcohol and no girls. :p ; The platform is blank slate on which you "paint", not in the colors of the empire you play as, but with the theme of the game. I'll get more into this on part 3, The Proposal.

Hi everyone
