Re: UI and Related

As others have said, great work so far. I'm particularly happy with the treatment of the map window, because I'm reasonably awful at navigating. However, I do have a few questions: You mention that the Main and Options menu windows are not movable. I'm not certain I'm seeing those, unless you mean t...

Re: Anthem Article

BioWare changed for the worse once they were acquired by EA, and went drastically downhill when Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk left. Developers who make games that they want to play make great games; corporations who make games they think will make money do not.

Re: UI and Related

Excellent to hear things are going well on the UI front. An obvious question from me, since the obvious sometimes gets overlooked: Sliders are generally found in options for scaling the size of all windows at once; will we also be able to resize individual windows? For example, I left most windows i...

Re: What was something you wanted to do in CoH but never got the chance?

I played CoX from just after I1 went live (my son introduced me to this new superhero game) to shut down, and I always wanted to do a TF solo. If you accepted the TF, it seemed to me that the devs could have provided you an option to do the TF via team or solo. If via team, you would progress throu...

Re: Controllers?

As of the last round of debating: Controllers are planned, and due to public demand I believe they have been moved up the priority chart but are not promised for release - not ruled out entirely, but the team is unwilling to promise when they aren't certain they can deliver. I am unsure where we sta...

Re: What's the best anime, and what anime are you watching?

Seeing as I have been watching some anime lately, I'll play. Finished in the last two weeks: Chaika the Coffin Princess https://kissanime.ru/Anime/Made-in-Abyss - For 500 years, the Taboo Emperor, Arthur Gaz, ruled the Gaz Empire with an iron fist and conducted inhumane experiments on his own people...

Re: "Meat Shield" Power for Tanks?

No thank you. Do not want.

I suspect that you will have a difficult enough time balancing Defenders and Devastators without allowing Tanks to add supplemental buffs.

Re: How do you feel about...HERDING??

Issue 4 herding was a snore-fest for anyone who wasn't a tank. Even for blasters it was pretty boring. "You guys wait here, I'll go get everything in this zone." Yawn. Post aggro cap herding was pretty pointless in most instances, although there were times when moving a spawn either toward or away f...

Too late/difficult to ditch the traditional mmo auction house for a CoH style double-blind consignment market?

Re: What is "platforming"

In general, I'm not a fan of platforming. However, solely in the context of SoH, I am indifferent. While I'm not particularly proficient at jumping puzzles, I would think that platform jumping is almost meaningless in a game with Flight and/or readily available jet packs. Also, in CoH, I always logg...

Re: Devastator and Defender overlap?

In City of Heroes, primaries powersets were 20% stronger than Secondaries. Also, the inherent abilities of each class made their primary more effective. Defenders were not looked down upon in that game, even when Corruptors were available. In fact, the class that suffered the most from Corruptors b...

Re: Combat Controls

I believe a follow command is very important for support character. Perhaps I'm ignorant here, being that I was mostly a solo player, but I can't think of any situation where using follow was better than simply moving your character. In CoH I used follow in three situations: I was dual-boxing; I wa...

Re: Planning Game Mechanics for Missions

Can we spawn enemies for higher than the maximum team size? So if the game allows teams of 10, can we spawn enemies as if there were 12 of us? And for GA: are you talking about in-mission ambushes (like the quantum rush at the end of the first ITF mission), or open-world ambushes (like the Kronoss T...

Re: Newbie: How does one get a playable account

From a purely selfish perspective, I really, really hope that subscription can be bought in blocks, as $15US a month is a very expensive commitment when converted into Australian Dollars. I'd like to see a 3, 6 and 12 month block structure where it's around $12US a month if bought as a 12 month blo...
