In FFXI a monster's difficulty was based on your level. It did not change once you joined a party (i.e. -party- level vs. monster level). How will the SP gains effect how a monster will check to a party? Will a "blue" mob to a party still give less SP than if you disbanded and soloed it (seeing how if you disbanded and checked the same monster now it will be 'red').
I am very curious to see how this will play out. It seems like if this -is- the case that duoing or trioing may be a better alternative to large-scale parties. Any thoughts?
(Also I realize no one can test this -now-, but once the maintenance is over would be a good idea to post any finds here, or in a new thread so that we can get a general consensus of people experiences so we can lay down a new standard for SP gains.)
