Do you think we'll get solo/duo play modes?

I'm really loving this game quite a bit (I'm still early on, I only recently reached level 8), but I honestly think I'd love it even more if they had a mode for lone wolf-style players like me.

I was disappointed initially that there wasn't a solo option. But I think the game needs a team dynamic. I'd actually rather see a mode with larger teams... 4-5 maybe? But duos would also be fun.

Wonder why they fell one 3 as the default. I usually do decent (and I'm not good at this game by any means) when one of our teammates bails out quick and it's just me and another person.

Could've sworn they said prerelease that they only had teams of 3 to start with because they wanted to get the game out there first.

Wouldn't really want any more than 3 because the player count just doesn't facilitate it but definatly could see duo working well.

Duos would be good. It sucks playing with someone else and having to have some rando as a third wheel.

I think there will be a solo mode released alongside the battlepass to entice players who do not like squads to buy in.

I think eventually they will have to put it out there. Definitely makes it hard to play without a dedicated group that you can communicate with!

I hope so. Just started playing and a match that lasts longer than 30 seconds is rare. Either I'm on the only team of silent randos (or one silent and one eight year old talking through a tin can) every time, my teammates suicide/AFK right off the bat, or I manage to drop right next to the one guy with 13000 kills who has done nothing but play Ape Leg since Feb 4.

Okay, that last one has nothing to do with teams vs. solo, but still.

I can see it both ways, though the solo experience has always been my least favorite way to play a BR game. I’d also be worried that a solo mode would influence the development of future Legends. This game is best as a team game and I’d definitely like for that to be the only focus.

Seeing how the game works, with the legends and the implementation of the ping systems, I don't see them ever doing solo.

I don't think it was built with solo play in mind. That said, I could see them going to quads and duos.

I'd really like a solo option, for when I wanted to have a knock around in the game but I'm not feeling like the added stress of letting down/being let down by two other people. I think it would make a nice fast paced 60 player deathmatch.
