Why would I apply with a group if it makes it tougher to draw a special permit?

You can benefit from applying for a group special permit in several ways.

If you have people you hunt with every year, you can apply as a group and draw the permit together.

If you have points built up in a specific special permit category, but your hunting partners only have a few points or are applying for the first time, you can help them enter with more points. Group applications average points in that category for all group members. Your partners would have a better chance of drawing.

If you have an interest in hunting mountain goats, you may consider a group application. Many mountain goat permit applicants apply with a group because of safety concerns while hunting in alpine country.
