Yes the new 2 player rule applies to all versions of Descent, including RtL. You can choose not to use it but you are meant to.

Played a solo game with this rule and was crushing quest after quest, it was too easy. Lately we play mostly with 2 heroes not using this rule and it's ok.
To be honest, I think that playing with 2 hereos (even without the rule) may even be a little easier and is surely much faster than 4.

Given the monster population of two heroes sometimes removes the Master from a monster group, yes. Two heroes can be quite a lot easier to work with than 3-4 in RtL. With two heroes the number of monsters attacking you each time a group activates is drastically reduced as well, leading to easier encounters overall if you aren't swarmed by numerous monster groups.

Game also goes much faster with fewer monsters around.

The trouble comes with deficiencies in Attribute tests mostly.

So basically the new rule is needed against a good OL player, but it's overkill in RtL?

Good that you've pointed "a good" one.

Yeah, that's kinda been a regular problem with talking about any balance issue in Decent. There are sooo many variables in play that can completely change a group's experience with the game.

The app specifically brings up the 2 player rule, actually, in the tutorial stuff. There might be a trigger... I was accidentally using the stage 2 hounds and got a guy killed, which put me one Morale away from losing. It popped up then.
