How many times do you have to be told, people largely do not like group bosses. Every single poll you have done shows that people want groups as small as possible, ideally solo; you've done I think THREE polls to this extent, one specifically during the design stage of Solak.

Duo mode is a welcome start, at least, but how many times do you have to be told to allow bosses to be soloed (READ: NOT SOLO ONLY, BUT SOLOABLE) before you listen? Group bosses just leave a bad taste in the mouths of many a PvMer.

Reveals look rather nice aside from this, but the fact you have pulled this crap AGAIN really annoys me. How many polls, how many dead bosses like AoD and Vorago and Raids do you have to waste time on before you get it?

Wow, just saw Raids 2 came up on the Combat talk? Lower group sizes were mentioned as "being investigated.".... How have you not worked out that the group size is WHY noone does raids. Not the 2-day lockout or anything, but the stupid group size. Make it scale down to solo and THEN we can talk about Raids 2.

Finally, Mod Pi championing it with a boss that scales to group size, something surely everyone can be happy with. If we can get loot from it reasonably at all group sizes, then please please please do this as a priority.

Scrap your new group only boss and make it scale down to solo like this too and apply this to raids and any future boss encounter. Why has it taken this long for it to happen tbh. Please do this with all the unsoloable bosses because at the moment they're a massive elephant in the room as far as PvM and PvM enjoyment goes for myself and most of the people I know.

So they just revealed on today's stream that Solak is what the Ambassador became....

We went from the promised Solo boss, to a boss for 1-5 people (which was fine and would please most people), to this... a 6-7 man boss (dead content, we know this from polls and AoD's popularity), with a duo mode.

Stop ignoring that people hate groups of size over 5 (realistically over 4), especially if this is the fate of the promised soloable boss you announced last Runefest, and that honestly a LOT of people hate group bosses full stop. Why is it so hard for you to just add a reasonably soloable mode too?

RIP Ambassador's intended audience (and no, The Magister is not the answer. They specifically said on today's stream that Solak is our replacement for The Ambassador).

Sad to see that the complaints about Solak being unsoloable (not solo only, just having a solo option...) have been brushed under the carpet. Group bosses are unpopular in general, this is a fact. It therefore baffles me to see Jagex always spend so much time and effort on group bosses while solo ones are either just rushed out without much care (Magister) or used as experiments (Telos).
