I solo roam in WvW pretty consistently, and that's what I did in DAoC also. Nope it's not what the intent of the game's designers is. But I enjoy it as do many others. I think, in a 1v1 view, that the classes are pretty balanced. You have to pay attention and understand each classes playstyle and strengths and weaknesses. For example, thieves are OP if you're not paying attention or one gets the jump on you while you're busy fighting someone else. But if I see one coming and prevent the initial spike, they have to run away or die.
Anyway the point is, you can run solo if that is what you enjoy. The one thing that has changed over the years is respect for solo'ers. Back in the dark ages when we were playing DAoC, if players saw a 1v1, we just ran by and left them to do their thing. These days if a 1v1 is spotted it's gonna get steamrolled. So it is more of a challenge to get a good 1v1 and actually have time to finish it without getting rolled.
