Why would you want to solo? "Let's go play an online game with other people in it so I can run off by myself!" You people make no sense.
Its very simple why we would want to solo, sub. Its basically because of this reason: WE SOMETIMES JUST WANT TO! Look, there are times when we long on and we don't want to join a group for whatever reason but we want it to at least be worthwhile if we choose to go at it alone. Granted, you won't get 100% out of games like these if you soloed but no one is asking to go solo throughout the entire time we're online. We just want the option to be able to solo when the time calls for it.
Just imagine this: You enter the game knowing that you have at least a hour left. Instead of spending your time looking for a group, you can just solo within the time that you have. This is good for everybody. First off, you won't waste your time looking for a group while actually getting something done and you won't waste your fellow party members' time by departing in such a short time. Win/Win
Anyways, there is no way that we can avoid groups in WoW. There will be constant attacks on your towns and cities thanks to the opposing force (Alliance/Horde) and Epic Quests are sure going to require more then just you. So is there a danger of people becoming loners? Nope, not at all since most people want 100% out of this game, not 25%.
And as for loners playing the game, thats their choice. They can spend their money how they see fit. Personally, if they are of opposite factions, that just makes it easier for me to kill them. XD Edited, Sat Jun 19 12:36:42 2004 by Redmoonxl
