As far as stealthers grouping ? It gets old getting ran over by small man or full groups . There is absolutely nothing wrong with stealthers grouping up.
To solo is a choice visi or stealth. And I know many enjoy that but we all have to understand the game is realm vs realm and no one is breaking any rules playing it as such. The game was designed to be a realm war.
What you say is true, but is it really practical? I play with two or three friends in a small man, and when we roam and get hit by an 6+ man of stealthers and pretty much one or two of us insta die? Well when stuff like that happens over and over we find something else to play. You really think the server's dwindling population can support all the solo/small mans logging off and finding another game? It can't...
The only thing that's going to be left are the ten or so set 8mans, the stealth zergs, and the lame ass keep take bgs. If that's what you really want in a server then more power to ya, but that's how servers die.
You might say that's a choice to run as a small or solo, but is it really? When pugging on this server has gotten so bad you sit there for the hour or two you have to play looking for a group so you're not fodder? Then it doesn't really become a choice but your only option. So, instead of wasting my time trying to form or join a group that's probably going to break up once it gets rolled enough by set 8s or zergs, people solo or small man with the friends they've made on this server.
Of course it's not breaking the rules, but it's crap what they do. They only do it so they can farm solos and people who are running with smaller numbers. At least when 8mans do it smaller numbers can avoid them when they pan their camera there's pretty much no defense against stealth group's style of play. Sure, you can use stealth pots, but those really don't help when the group scatters in every direction. You're lucky to get one or two of 'em. Or your other choice is to avoid the zones they're in, which is the task zone. Sure that's definitely a viable option if you want to do nothing but check out the low resolution scenery of daoc and find pretty much nothing to even fight.
Bottom line, their style of play is detrimental to this server and they have pretty much already made me stop playing my melee hunter. Because there's literally no point to it. I am sure that I am not alone in that, how long before you see the duos/small mans drop off from the server?
