Why no action camera in multiplayer?

I have noticed that in singleplayer, you occasionally get a "3rd person cinematic" camera for the duration of the attack. It's quite nice. Reminds me of many other games with turn based combat. The way it is done (only happening rarely) is a nice switch of mood.


However, when we play multiplayer, in many many hours I have never ever seen this feature occur.

I don't know if its turned off on purpose in multiplayer, but mabye it is just an oversight and could be activated?
I think there is also a setting in the options for that, irrc. So people can turn it off anyway if they don't like it.

The closeup cinematic view would be neat for killing blows.  Maybe not every killing blow, but mini-bosses, or the most powerful opponent in the current battle.  Something like that.

I suspect this is disabled in multiplayer since we have never seen it.  And I see it far too often in single-player.  But it is a neat view that I want them to find a way to use in multiplayer.

I believe the setting "Contextual Camera Frequency" under Settings->Game is for that, if you feel like you get it too often in your single-player game try turnig it down.
