I'm just going to leave this here.

 

Group play upsides:

  • Socializing
  • not feeling "alone" all the time
  • better rewards
  • more laughs
  • healers always get invites

Group play downsides

  • separate schedules
  • "c'mon man, one more run"
  • greedy gretchen loot-hoggery
  • superfast players and struggling to keep up
  • waiting for a healer/tank/dps (oh wait...I'm dps, lol!)

Solo play upsides

  • I can /log /afk /read /take a phone call /etc anytime
  • "No, I don't want to run that dungeon 80 time until your get your item and then its "gtg"
  • not feeling guilty when you "gtg"
  • "It's mine all mine!"
  • No begging for heals in public chat

Solo play downsides

  • boring
  • "I'm playing a social game...alone?"
  • I'mma solo this boss what me.....(x.x).....ok, Imma get him this time!
  • Your crafted loot is crap
  • You play a healer and getting pwned because your dps/tanking sucks

Pick your poison.

I prefer solo play mostly in MMOs due to me just liking single player experiences. A write up i saw on Massively had the writer talking about why he soloed all the time. Mainly, it's i get to play something you don't see in most single-player games. If i need to group up, i'll jump into a PUG then pop out if people don't need my help. If i'm in a guild, i still lonewolf it up, but will help when needed.
