That's one way of looking at it. However, Final Fantasy XI had a ton of classes that couldn't solo much. If you want to solo stuff be a NIN or RDM. The multiple support and magic classes in the game brought a great deal of variety and forced a lot of coordination and teamwork, which a lot of us greatly enjoyed.
