I am willing to accept whatever people chose to be the best way for them to enjoy (or not enjoy) any games.
I have soloed or pugged for 95% of my DDO "career" so I meant what I said. This "downside" has I called it of LFM being down can still be solved (or at least be much less painful) if you are willing to just post your own LFM. Which is maybe why I (me) don't see it as such a big problem. But that's just a whole different subject and that's just my own point of view on it.
