Personally, I don't particularly get annoyed by the pressure, I get
annoyed because the calibre of players is so low. Soloability isn't
important to me because I don't want to play with other people, it's
important to me because there are usually no people I want to play
with. Yes, it's better to play with other people than to play alone,
but it's better to play alone than to play with assholes. And there
are a LOT of assholes.
