I spent many years mountain biking on a Rohloff, before affordable 1x11 came along. I won't ever be going back, unless a lot changes. The shifting performance is fine for non-technical riding, but on trails, the drag and vague shifts had a big effect on my riding experience. Derailleurs and chains are just inherently way more efficient. The answer is to move the cassette into the frame, and make the cassette move (maintaining chainline), paired with a super basic chain tensioner. It's not hard to design -the only thing preventing this from already happening is patent law.
