I've got my opinions. Want to hear yours.
Since its inception, I have seen a great many party leaders use this "new feature" to scrutinize the "worth" of players seeking to join a party.
I believe this is not as intended by the devs.
I understand as DDO has significantly grown, we have a great number of players who level quickly and lack skills to use characters they are not used to.
even more so how fluid the combat system is compared to off brand knock-offs (wow), players must battle and cast in real time. But while these new players are here, hopefully to stay awhile, for they are the lifeblood of this game.. and potential word of mouth advertisement, (sorry ddo marketing, 4 commercials in 4 years is inadequate)... We REALLY need these new players to keep ddo alive and well.
Booting new players because they lack gear or have weird builds is tantamount to disaster in the long run, Sure you win your quest while the new guys never do and never learn. lose enough times and they are gone.
I dont believe My ddo can be removed now, for good or bad... but I wonder, like any dangerous item, How will you use it?
for the good of your party? for your knowledge? or for the good of ddo?
I attest I will never "My DDO" anyone who seeks to join my parties. I take what comes and we roll accordingly.
Share with me how you use My DDO if at all...
