Re: Update on the CCT Beta

Who will be invited to the CCT beta, exactly? Are all the players to be invited limited to only supporters? I ask because this could lead you guys to making a perhaps costly mistake of only getting feedback from your hardcore supporters who are already invested, and this can lead to a closed off fee...

Re: Please make us run around this city

The city may look great, but that doesn't mean I want to run around it for an hour or even many more on every alt I ever make. I remember the old slog to level 14 in CoH less than fondly. It was less of a slog when it was changed to level 6, but still odd and annoying. Please join the modern age of ...

Re: Names of the archetypes & Secret identities

In COH i mainly played controllers. I have to disagree that controllers didn't do much damage. Pretty soon after release controllers got a damage buff. Every controlled enemy got double damage from controller powers, so it was relatively easy to defeat single mobs. Some controllers actually had hig...

Re: What power from CoH do you miss the most and also which one the least?

Least favorite sets: claws, the blaster/corruptor gun power set (name eludes me at the moment), FITNESS. I hated having to designated three powers slots to fitness on all my characters! Hey I had a lot of favs, but I wanted to point this out more than anything else. Fitness should have been elimina...

Re: Names of the archetypes

Some thoughts in passing. In the 1930's it was completely plausible that Batman could have been anyone in a city with the size and complexity of Gotham, and remain unidentified. Would that work today with 200,000+ cameras on every street corner and facial and voice recognition software available to...

Re: Names of the archetypes

... I don't want the sci-fi/future feel to overpower the superhero feel. Like syndrome says, if everyone is super, then no one is. ... I know it's off topic for this thread, but this means so much to me, and it's one of the reasons I heartily dislike the game devs deciding for us that "Secret Ident...

Re: What gave CoH it's "Je ne sais quoi"?

Teleport though, well, lets not go there... With it bound to right-click it was super-usable. Click both buttons to teleport to where you were pointing. Easiest travel power there was, and I could usually beat anybody else to the door. But a lot of people didn't know about that trick, and I imagine...

Re: (Dec 12) How many defined missions should SOH have before we allow a closed Alpha Test?

I feel like the first Alpha test should be : 2 Street sweeping missions. 1 small story arch mission - Maybe 3-5 missions for arch. 1 GM to tackle. 1-2 badges to trigger an achievement. Let us explore everything to find graphic glitches/exploits This amount up there? It's an hour at best. Sure, peop...

Re: Kickstarter Rewards

Whatever you do, if you say something is exclusive to Kickstarter, please keep it that way or don't say it at all. Please. [/b] Bah. Just issue a disclaimer that "Kickstarter exclusives" are exclusive for a year or two after live launch, and then available in other ways. It's stupid to spend dev re...

Re: A Few Points About Game Mechanics (1)

I almost forgot. On the matter of death penalty, low levels should have no penalty, but how about coming up with a layered choice instead of a single penalty? As one example, perhaps when defeated [not killed, defeated!], you get the choice to rez back up on the spot to full health and energy for a ...

Re: A Few Points About Game Mechanics (1)

I like the way this is evolving, and so is the plan for debt in SoH as we discuss it. We do listen to you guys, you know. :) I'll also say that on other games I've observed that the first five levels often are used as tutorials, to ensure that players can move backwards, move forwards, activate an ...

Hehe.It was indeed sarcasm, which is why I included the eyeroll emote. Of course I'm familiar with the stupid card game that's just a special card set of Crazy 8s.

Re: Alien Raids question

I'm not sure I'd ever want content hard-to-get to. A top end raid I can see only giving a reward every so often, if we want to limit it that way, but I wouldn't ever want a system that had people hanging around to maybe get to play it. Personally, I wouldn't either, but there are some people who li...

Re: Maximum Power question

Whatever the cap will become, that cap will be the "normal" rating against which the devs need to plan their mobs. So, even with 1000% your heroes wont get any mightier since all mobs will have to be constructed with that in mind. What *will* change is the experience of casual players who may not b...
