So lately, I've gotten sick of being either #3 or #4 on the leaderboards at the end of missions. "How can I be number one?", I said to myself. Well, one way to do it would be to solo the mission. "That sounds like a great idea", I thought, "and hey, if I play the mission entirely alone, that means that I get all the XP!"
On the other hand, that means that I miss out on the team bonuses and rewards that come from being a well-adjusted individual who knows how to play well with others.
So, assuming that I'm a bit sociopathic and I don't really care whether I'm playing alone or with others, which is more beneficial strictly in terms of reward potential, playing alone or with a team?
