Where in DDO do you see teamplay and inter-player synergy shine?
The reason I ask is that often I see groups that work well (running EE without any issues for example) yet its not really because we play terribly well together or due to any sort of even semi-complex interaction that provide a boost from synergy. Rather, its often simply 6 people that run alongside each other more or less doing what each would have been doing if they were soloing.
I suspect its mostly because DDO is so extremely solo friendly, anti "you need xxx to do well" and the abundance of selfhealing but in a way it also feel flat and simplistic in terms of interplayer interaction leaving most of the interaction between the individual and the envirronment.
When was the last time in an EE group where you actually stopped to debate for even a minute before running into a room that "A should go kite those 3 over there, while B and C locks down the horde of trash in the corner, D sneaks past to disable the forcefields and E tanks the boss while F heals and debuffs".. rather than just change in and kill indiscriminantly but skillfully as individuals rather than a team?
Thus my question in the hope that others can provide examples of how teamplay far exceeds the sum of the individuals involved due to the synergy created. Thanks
