    Yeah and it just means 'Many people playing this game online'.

    Any no point does it mean "You aren't meant to play this game solo". People have been able to treat MMO's as a solo experience since always.

    Yes it is and kindly tell me what major achievement can one get SOLO in wow? How far can pugs go? 2k pvp and 2-3 bosses mythic? Even the high end M+ can't be done solo grouping not without major pains that are NOT worth it.
    You should literally never be able to do top end content solo. To even think so is fucking stupid and should not be taken remotely seriously.

    No...it literally means...'play and group with others" to think the opposite is moronic.

    Interestingly, before WoW grouping in MMOs was an aberration. Massively Multiplayer has always meant playing in a persistent game world that many others were also playing in. Instancing and grouping are late comers to the genre.

    Grouping probably first really became a thing in Everquest.

    Doesn't mean it's intended you group either, if it were called Massively Multiplayer Online Grouping Role Playing Game you'd have yourself an argument lol.

    MMORPG just means there's a lot of people in the same online space as you. You're under no obligation to interact with them.

    That's always been an optional thing in MMO's, and continues to be today. No MMO is built around a mandatory group experience. Questing and exploration have always been staples of the genre, and designed to be played solo.

    I don't expect them to, but I expect them to provide more content that is solo viable.

    And frankly, if 9.2's open content progression and the 10.0 profession revamps are any concern, it seems like a step in the right direction.

    I don’t think YOU understand what mmorpg means my friend, raids and dungeons should not be the core of mmorpgs. That’s not the definition of them.

    Delusional take. They are most certainly are not designed to be done solo, they're designed to be done either solo or with a group. Hefty difference between the two.

    You can most certainly do them in a group, but I would not say they are particularly designed well for group play. They leave it to the players to decide how to progress with the content they have.

    The things that work effectively in groups are the kill quests, which I admit end up comprising a majority of quests in the game.
    See, you're contradicting yourself in this single post.

    What is efficient isn't factored into quest design, at all. Your statement of "Quests and Exploration are designed to be done solo" is false and you've just said it so yourself.

    I don't think it's worth having arguments with people who are anally retentive over semantics. Easier to just update my statement.

    And yeah u would lose that bet.
    There nothing, nada, zero, in the word multiplayer that defines how people interact with each other or if they must interact at all. It's just a big game with people sharing a world online. How they go about that is something entirely different.

    What more do you want them to hand to you? This last expac has been more solo friendly than ANYTHING IN THIS GAME HAS EVER BEEN. Yet you still fucking cry and whine and want more?

    This is why Bliz shouldn't a shit about what people say. They meet their demands at every step, give them what they want, then they just stick their grubby little hands out further begging for even more scraps claiming they deserve more.

    People like you are what's wrong with gaming communities. People like you ruin it for everyone else because no matter what concessions you get NOTHING will ever be fucking good enough because your a spoiled rotten little prick. Same goes for anyone that agrees with this swill.

    bruh that's not semantics, your statement wasn't the same as what's factual.

    semantics would be like saying "Quests and Exploration are designed for multiple people to experience together" "Quests and Exploration are intended as a multiplayer experience"
