What's better: a game where every class feels distinct and has unique abilities or a game where any player can do anything so long as she builds intelligently? Ralsu answers resoundingly in favor of games with specialized classes. He takes a look at the balancing act developers must undergo to make a good game "with class" and says DDO is does it right.
