Why is it so much easier to solo than group?

^^^ So, you're blaming the devs because people don't feel like playing as a team (i.e. people that join but just "leech")?


Yes I am? When you make a game that doesn't promote or require coop then yeah, it's the devs fault.

You don't even need to play as a team to farm efficiently. Esp when barbs solo everything just fine and don't bring much to a coop team.

It doesn't? Is one for bad player and the other for new player? And if so, which is which?

Still, the option is there. So, if everyone can handle itself, playing co-op is motivated exclusively by fun. Then, it really doesn't help if party members are jerks.

Besides, you're assuming everyone enjoys teaming up. In this case, it cannot be the other way around, like as if they added benefits for co-op play that "punish" (or are inaccessible to) the player that prefers to solo.

People are complaining (myself included) that there's no offline mode. How could they add offline mode if you're required to go multiplayer to gain access to certain content?

Oh wait... They did that before with Uber Trist.

True story! When I played FFXI and was in a party someone's excuse was in the microwave and he had to leave.

It was so hilarious we decided not to start swearing in global chat as a goblin tore us a new one (he was the healer).

lolwat when did i say anything about people enjoying teaming up? I just said there's no incentive.

And why do you think they haven't implemented anything yet? They don't want to make coop mandatory for loners, but still have to make it rewarding instead of punishing. This is all stuff blues have stated..

If you think solo is easier, you're doing it wrong.

The game is absolutely trivialized when you add multiple people to a single player game.
