Make sure the the leader is setting waypoints and giving orders so that you can focus on objectives. in most MMO's I much prefer soloing over guilds etc but in PS2, it (grouping) adds to the fun immeasurably. Plus your XP goes up much faster
I disagree. I found squad-based play to be more rewarding in PS1, but in PS2 I do equally well (if not better now) when I solo. The way the XP currently is means all you have to do is show up in an attack, kill things, and be there when the cap goes through. I've yet to see any real benefits to being in a squad in PS2.
