Fellow SOLO player here as well. I bounced off of it as well. I liked the controls/combat for the genre but the structure of the game was just bleh. For a game that wanted me to quest grind my way to max level, they put zero effort into it. The same three or four boring low-effort quest templates repeated ad nauseum and then nothing to hide the pointless gear treadmill at the end.
I got bored with that one real quick but this one is grabbing me more, it feels a lot fresher.
