Well, the ships spawning behaves differently whether you're in a party, and whether you're the party's leader:
- If you're in a party, only your party's leader can spawn ships for the party. And only ships meant for parties.
-If you're not in a party, you can only spawn 'The Lone Wolf' just for yourself (and that's as intended).
I just tested it, and it was still working the same way, is it perhaps something else that you refer to?
