Is there a contradiction in this passage?

I guess first sentence is supposed to be “Acting alone would’ve been more efficient than acting as a phantom thief.”.
Is this right?

He who is called in this passage “you” organizes a group after.

I found this sentence in this video at 44:25.
A: ooh i never played persona 5. persona 3 was so good.

she says "acting as a phantom thief would've been more efficient alone". i dont think there's a contradiction. what she means acting alone is more efficient (as opposed to acting in a group).

she also says there's merits to having associates. by this she is then implying that "efficiency" is not part of the "merits". so even though he chose to form a group he will be less efficient, but there are other advantages to being in a group that he wouldn't have if he were acting solo.
