I'm honestly curious, how do you know there are a lot of people like this? I'm sure there might be some out there, but I don't think I've met any.Well, it is rare for a player to be so honest and direct and say "I want weak easy foes". A lot of DMs agree with the players about easy mook encounters, so the whole game is easy. The players don't need to say anything. Though in most games it is very easy for a DM to make things hard as the players will set things up that way.
