DDO Editorial on Socialization

Posted Mon, Apr 17, 2006 by Ethec

Party over here!

Does Turbine takes the necessary steps to make people want to form a party in Dungeons & Dragons Online: Stormreach (DDO)? Ralsu thinks so. He describes the easy-to-use but deep social system in DDO and draws comparisons to other massively-multiplayer games:

Friends
Another component of the social tool in DDO is the Friends Screen. This is your buddy list for those really cool people who already belong to a different guild than you...A glance at the screen lets you tell whether or not each friend is online...The updated social tool also alerts you when a friend comes online (like most instant messengers do). Even if you have already started a party and a dungeon, you can grab that friend the moment she comes online. This also makes it easier for you to find a party, as you might be the friend who just logged on to get a tell for a party invitation.

A horribly-abused system from gaming's past is all but eradicated from current titles.
