I’m with you on this and have brought it up before as well. Perhaps to make it a little easier I’d say it doesn’t have to be this extreme. My problem isn’t being pulled in as Monster, my problem is being pulled into pre-made groups as Monster. That’s where it moves from “eh, can’t always get what you like” to “WTF? Now I’m just going to get creamed and it makes enjoying the game harder”. While I survived my first outing with the retail game I absolutely was frustrated by that exact scenario happening right off the bat, paired against a group of hunters who were talking on chat in the lobby, obviously knew each other, and I was their fresh level 1 meat. A definite problem not just for making the game tougher on newer players or people who don’t prefer monster but also inflating/deflating stats a bit dishonestly and making good hunter groups need to waste time looking for decent Monsters.
A possible solution would be to make a specific option to check for “Willing to be paired in pre-made groups” to make it a bit more fair. Look, if everyone is doing pick-up someone may need to be Monster and that’s cool, raising the bar to force you to also be against pre-mades is a bit nasty.
