This is a follow up to this question. I will start with the party context: We are playing Princes of the Apocalypse in a huge party, composed of: Tiefling Sorcerer, Human Dual-Wielder Ranger, High Elf Rogue, Dragonborn Paladin, Half-Elf Warlock, Dwarf Cleric, Half-elf Monk and me, Human Fighter.
My current build is a Variant Human with Polearm Master and Glaive, going for Battle Master, plus Sentinel and GWM as feats later on (by later on I mean I'll have both at 6). As mentioned by Korvin in the other question, this is a high DPR build, but I do intend to play it in a supportive manner. How exactly can I do that?
My ideas up to now were: Shoving (instead of just attacking) so our Ranger gets advantage (gets better with Trip Attack), zoning with Reach + Polearm Master (better when I get Sentinel) so I can protect our squishies, and I do intend to go for Commander Strike, although not DPR-optimal, just to make them attack more often and feel good about doing damage.
Still, our Rogue has talked to me saying he feels a little useless, and our Ranger is mainly focused on DPR and I don't want to overshadow him by just doing a massively higher amount of damage. I could help them optimize (and probably will), but in the meantime, (how) can I play this Fighter build in a more supportive way that makes my fellow companions feel better about their own characters? My main concern is about these two dudes, the Ranger and the Rogue have been focused in DPR and another massive DPR character (that will probably out-DPR them unless I help them optimizing) would overlap too much into "their thing".
On a second thought I should probably have built this differently, although my preferred Support Fighter build (Grappler) would suck in our setting, since with 8 players in the table, the DM is throwing mobpacks at us. Either way, I like the build, so I would prefer to keep it and see if there's something I can do about the "helping others" aspect.
Note that we are limited to PHB, and possibly no multi-classing, although I still have to ask my DM about that.
