Edit: changing my question

Anydice has a formula that allows to calculate advantage.

For example:

output [highest 2 of 2d8]

This is like the standard advantage in 5e

I have a system where each players rolls a d8, possibly with advantage.

All results are tallied up to reach a target number.

It's different than output [highest 3 of 6d8], but i can't really find the words to explain why (english not my main language).

[highest 3 of 6d8] should yield better results than each player rolling a d8 with advantage, by himself, and then tallying up.

Can i calculate that in anydice?
