Yeah. You remember when I said that when many people choose a gamestyle (in this case, solo), devs will start catering more to them? Well, you agreed and said something along the lines of 'then they will make more games like that and less games like the ones i like'. That sort of thing. Also, if everyone in your favourite mmo is now soloing because its more fun and more rewarding, they are not grouping wth you, kinda saying that they prefer to be alone than with you.

Also, there is this:

I played AoC at launch. technical problems aside. No one grouped in that game. unless they needed something and even then soloing was easier thus no one wanted to group for the harder conent because the rewards were not great enough to that of what you could solo (thats why you cant have both in a game). I consider AoC more of a solo game. I solo'ed 80%. Its extremly hard to group when solo'ing is such a viable option

 

So you see now why I said what I said. But if I misunderstood you, then by all means, I apologize =D

That's what makes them extremists.

 

There are only those kind of people in your imaginary world. It's weird, twisting reality to make your own point seem more valid. Not that I didn't expect it though.

Just being able to solo won't do that, but when the tip changes towards soloers then everyone solos. If the tip scaled towards grouping, everyone groups. Having solo or grouping feature alone won't do anything, but how it's set up and which playstyle gets more attention from the devs.

I haven't made that argument.

For me, the gear doesn't matter. My only concern is having fun stuff to do that suits my preferences. I've never been the type to be concerned about epeen in an MMO.

But you are siding with the non-extreme soloists anyway. I'm not blaming you though, I'm blaming the devs.

No need for me to resort to a flame war on this one; not when I'm clearly correct. :)

No, what having both as viable options will do is that people will choose what is more fun to them, regardless of loot or status. I dont want or need more rewards for my soloing than you for your group content, I dont. But I want some kind of reward. I think thats fair.

So as a player who enjoys grouping and solo play, I must live in an imaginary world as well because I see the same extreme POVs that IIv is mentioning?
 

No one is twisting anything. Look through all the topics on this subject and read through each thread. You will see every extremist view from both sides.

There are 3 types of people in the world.
1.) Those who make things happen
2.) Those who watch things happen
3.) And those who wonder "What the %#*& just happened?!"

They aren't advocating for choice, they are advocating the playstyle the devs happen to prefer. They are not equal.

Yeah, you might wanna pay a bit more attention to the group vs solo threads of recent history. There are a lot of extremists around. You haven't actually stated your own preferences in this debate yet, (being seemingly content to disagree with other peoples) but my instinct is that you belong to the group extremist crowd who believes that the only way a game can cater to a group playstyle is to remove the option of viable solo play so that everyone has to group to progress.

Thats where the line gets a bit fuzzy.

In almost all MMOs both can be viable and often are. The problem is which is 'preferable'?

Both options can be equally viable, but its the player base that really decides which option is preferable in the end. Thats when you see the shit to one play style being the most popular in a game.

Well, if you really want me to say it, yes.

Someone is twisting the general opinion of the said extremists. This may come as a surprise, but in your team there are retards who spout nonsense as well as intelligent individuals with an actual point. I can come and tell you that the opinion of said retards is the opinion of everyone in your team. Now would that be twisting or not?

Hey I'd believe you if you proved me how are the devs making both playstyles perfectly equal, so it would really be the individuals choice. But doing that ain't so easy as you think.

You want me to prove that there are group/solo extremists out there?

Answer the question in my last post.

Then search these forums for posts by Chrisel and Ihmotepp.

Both have, shall we say, very strong views on the solo-vs-group debate.

Haha, I wish I was as naive. They're never equal. That's the problem.
