Why? The Carbine Devs have stated only 1% of the MMO population participated in 40man raids, but their putting them in anyways, because they the Devs liked them (Along with some more reasons I felt were more trying to justify putting in 40mans.). If you do not like 40 man raids then you’re not part of that 1% that this content is catering to, and you saying that they should not exist is going to change nothing. You’re also not the first person to get up on their soapbox on this subject, in this forum. And solo content does?! You might play MMOs for the social connections ‘you’ make. I’m part of that 65% that primarily solos, so my reason for playing an MMO is not for the social connections I make. As for the potential of making social connections (I figure you’re talking about new ones.); potentially, 40man raids provide more chances of forming new social connections than small group content, which in this day and age of MMOs is often already made social connections coming over from other MMOs. In conclusion I feel that even as a Soloer I have no issues with 40mans being part of the W* Eldergame content, being the Devs have said straight up they know the % of MMO population that is going to be interested in them, and they are providing other Eldergame content for other play styles.
