All guardian teams

In COX one of my favorite things to do was play on all defender teams. The buffs stacked very well and the teams were almost unstoppable and we would meet up once a week to level.

Never played in one of those.

Never played in one of those. But I was part of a few scrapper-lock teams in my time.

That would be enough scrappers that the enemies died fast enough that there was no need for healing and such.

As long as the Defenders had

As long as the Defenders had a nice mix of primary powers (to cover all the caps) - yes those were fun!

Long Live Green Machine and

Long Live Green Machine and the Repeat Offenders!

I can recall a session running my new Emp/Rad with Green Machine when IO's were still in the future looking down during a mission and seeing nothing but red TO's and empty slots ... and still destroying mobs in seconds owing to the massive stacked buffs present. Think that's when just how potent an all defender team could be really sank in. Never mind all the other all Defender SG's that RO regularly ran ... Pinball Wizards, Perfect Storms and all the rest.

I wish I had played more

I wish I had played more defenders, a full team of them sounds like a blast. Were there any powersets that were absolutely necessary to make that sort of team work? Like did you need a bubbler for +defense group buffs and to jump in the mob first with the PFF along with a sonic to apply +resistance group buffs or else the team would wipe?

I suppose that many people applying any type buff/debuff would make the game a breeze.

No requirement like that

No requirement like that needed, but would be helpful since they also had Mez Resist Bubbles.

My faves were Time Manip and Dark Manip but Radiation wasn't bad, though I was never the big fan of it so many others were (great on teams, I just didn't enjoy playing it as much)

Man, it’s really too bad Time Manipulation came out so late in the life of the game. I never had the chance to really get rolling with it before the shutdown.

I loved teaming with my 'twin

I loved teaming with my 'twin', Forcefield/Energy Blast Defenders
We played KB Soccer with the baddies, while the bubbles kept us upright.
Another favorite was my Darkity-Dark Defender. Give her a minute to get set up and the baddies were nerfed to death before anyone started 'Arresting' them.

Be Well!

All offender TF runs were faceroll. I was a little bit sad I didn't have one when those were a thing. I loved though that it was possible to go with an all Defender team and do end-game content. No other MMO has this. Some MMOs don't rely on the trinity per se but they basically promote pure DPS builds as the de facto standard. CoH really broke the mould on that when the mould was still pretty new, and since then I've been perpetually disappointed.

It was the same with all the ATs, to varying degrees.
