Ok, I will say this, in an age when MMORGs are turning group oriented, I get to play solo most of the time. Yes I prefer playing RPG games. I have played Dungeons and Dragons, Dragon Age: origins, II, Inquisition and now I am on Elder Scrolls online. I rarely get to play in group for very long. At one point while playing Guild Wars, I did get into a fantastic group of elites. That was a lot of fun. Yet like all things, it didn't last. I still consider them my friends, but well life itself gets in the way. Different time zones, work schedules and family life itself all play a part in making it difficult to play in a group. Now that said, I am not complaining. I do not by any standard consider myself a player elite, or noob. I am an evolving skill player, who sometimes forgets to research things online and bashes myself for it.<G> Playing RPG or MMORG, is fun and challenging. I love playing PVE style. Call me a whimp if you want, I find I am much nicer to myself if I don't get involved in competition. Yes, I am a sore loser. I do get frustrated easily. I played Battlefield with family once and ended up leaving the room on severe frustration because I had been targeted by a knife hitter, more than 7 times in a row. I love accomplishing tasks. In PVE I cam do that, but it doesn't seem to work as well in PVP. I have also found I am not good at first person shooting, rather I work well in ranged combat with spells, bows, such not. In Guild Wars, I was a ranger or a ritualist. In Diablo, wizard, or voodoo caster, whereas in most others like Dragon Age and Elder Scrolls, caster is my happy place. I can see what is going on in the battle and plan my work. I hate being rushed, unless I have a close combat skill or high defense. Having minions, is also a bonus, I love. Towards the end of Guild wars they implemented a npc grouping, which a lot of people took advantage of. They could customized, the skills, armor and groupings for whatever they were going to face. That was the last time I had that much control and that much support for solo playing in a game. Now, I run along completing what I can and repeating until I get through, what is not so easy alone. Of course, Elder Scrolls has a leveling system for dungeons and some tasks. Which means, I can't just solo a group dungeon which will level for a group to my level when I am just one player. Ah well, that can done with a PUG, pick up group. Just hope that the leader is a lower level since it goes to the leaders level. The nice part of MMORGs, that you can play off other players without having to group with them. You still get credit for kills and clearing areas even when it's a group running at the same time and place without being actually grouped. I find that is especially helpful in hard situations when I don't want to LFG to do something. Fortunately, there are plenty of players around and just waiting for another to show up, isn't that long. I have heard and respected requests for no help in kills, That is unusual but can happen, and I find being respectful enough to step aside just works. That is not always the case when listening in safe areas to other players. Sadly, too many believe that since it's a game and their name is not public(really, is but they believe it isn't) that they can act out. I find myself leaving channels to just not hear the mess. It is nice to listen to those who are being helpful and I give lauds to them here. So that is that for today, next time I will see if I can say more detail about exploits and fun.
