Having recently come back from a month+ break, I was disappointed to see my flist pretty dead. The majority of the people from the HC contact thread here seemed to have moved on. As pubs are pretty dead, where are you guys finding people to play with? Are you running with the same people you knew from D2? Most of the people I knew from Banana are either no longer active or didn't buy D3. Are you playing with friends from real life? Or is everyone just resigned to / content with going solo?
I've been playing solo pretty much since I hit 60. Pubs that move at the same speed I do are hard to find. I'm either too slow or too fast. That, and I also prefer the freedom of being able to afk whenever I want/need to. When I play in a group, I can't do that.
Most of the time I'm playing solo, but would like to change that if anyone feels like grouping once in a while (add Monty#1150). Since my last death due to the game freezing, I'm starting to think it would be smart to group more so you have backup in those situations.
Just started a WD due to never really playing one, and hear they're good for survivability. I figure if I lag or lock up again at least I have pets to help out.
