Personally, I don't like being restricted on what there's available for me to do. Like, solo minigames - I can understand, at least. But anything that requires more people, I wish it was more available, same with farming. In the past, the farming maps, minigames were always open, for anyone who wanted to focus on one thing or the other. Now it's kinda you following someone else's schedule, instead of your own.
So far, the thing I enjoyed the most was the main quest, however frustrating it was, at times. I loved that the event flagman headgears are back, just wish those really weren't account bound (kek). Easter eggs were awesome too.
