Re: The one thing I dislike about CoH, & what I hope SoH does better?

... Make me want to actually pay attention to the story...not just click to the next jumbled text just to hurry along the mission. The missions that stick in my mind are the ones that make me pay attention to the story. This is my main complaint too. CoH has a lot of action, but the stories seem ve...

Re: Controllers and Commanders

Anyone that knows me from City of Heroes knows that Masterminds are my favorite AT in the game. As such, I am extremely looking forward to Commanders. I know that it will be a bit of wait past the Ship of Heroes launch, but it will be well worth it. It's better to wait and get it right than to rush ...

Re: CoH Homecoming server costs

I want to say that this is not a corporation you are dealing with. It is not an LLC or such. I would be very hesitant to hand over credit card or bank info to someone that is untraceable. If they want your money and you are willing to give it, I would wait until they either have a Patreon or PayPal...

Re: What stage does the game need to be in for you to play at launch (not beta testing)?

Three will make me happy as long as there is some sort of system in place to let people play missions added later into the game that they may have overleveled, like the Ouroboros system in City of Heroes . I.e., if there are no missions in the game at launch, and I have a character at the level cap...

Re: Secret real COH server has been active since 2012/2013

I'm hearing a couple of different complaints about the COH AE system: 1. Other players are having fun their way, and not my way, and this is bad because they are not available to join my non-AE team or task force. 2. Other players are using AE as a powerleveling exploit, or perhaps only running one...

Just FYI, I tried to answer and got a HTTP 507 (Insufficient Disk Storage) error.

Re: What kind of pay model would you prefer?

Option #1 all the way. Free-to-play creates a horrible "community," and lifetime subscriptions isn't a sustainable business model. Look at The Lord of the Rings Online . The hardcore Tolkien fans all bought lifetime subscriptions, so the publisher had to add a bunch of microtransactions later on to ...

Re: Secret real COH server has been active since 2012/2013

My nutshell observations on COH v 25.2 to Lvl 15 * The game missions are missing a lot of NPC's as I recall from COH's heyday. * Bad idea that Double XP weekend was, if they wanted to introduce old and new players to it. The Mapserves and Crashes killed the game for a lot of today's generation of i...

Not to mention that eventually 32 bit support will be killed off, like macOS.

Re: Secret real COH server has been active since 2012/2013

OK, the soap opera seems to have cooled a bit. Now I find that I was looking forward to the daily releases of new information. I don't see any new news on the recovery of old COH today. Does anyone? Tony Vazquez of the Titan Network announced tonight that they are in formal negotiations with NCSoft...

Re: Worried about the community in MMO's

The amount of people on the Internet has increased exponentially over the past fifteen to twenty years. Of course with that explosion of people, the number of jerks, trolls, and people with the attention span of fruit flies will also increase exponentially. The switch of MMOGs from subscription-base...

Re: Secret real COH server has been active since 2012/2013

Well, virtualization has improved quite considerably since 2012, so it's possible that people will eventually be able to get it to work in a virtual machine. But for right now, yeah, that's what is required. It's a mess. That it uses MS SQL instead of PostgreSQL or something makes me feel dirty. :P

Re: Secret real COH server has been active since 2012/2013

I'm sitting on paragon chat and reddit now. It seems the code is now out, although not the mission data base. From what little I can understand the server specs look a bit beyond a desktop machine, but it will be interesting to see what comes of this. I've always felt the first successor project to...

Re: Secret real COH server has been active since 2012/2013

From what has come out the past few days, the server code is ugly. It's a miracle that it's worked at all. You have to remember that work on City of Heroes began back in 2000, before Windows XP was even released. I've seen Microsoft SQL mentioned multiple times. That alone is a nightmare itself. To ...
