I may not be the only one who finds the high ranked materials to be exclusive online absurd. In the console MHs (MH, MHdos, MHG and MHtri) you can only gather the high end materials and fight exclusive monsters online which is ok to have, but making them only obtainable this way means that they can only be get by connecting to the internet. This means that a lot of people will not be able to get those materials because they can't get online, but also means that all this content will be blocked once the servers shut down. Most of the fun from the original MH came from playing with friends, and most of the content was online. And with the recent shut down of Tri's servers I think this is something that should be thought by the developers.
What do you think?
