Unteamed buffs: Application & Duration?

So, to fill the HUGE superhero MMO void, I've lately sunk so low as to start playing Champions Online. While an OK diversion, it seems like every 5 minutes playing I either think or mutter that 'CoX did this aspect better'. Don't get me wrong...there are SOME things that CO implemented better...but ...

Re: Motivation for helping new players question

Just an aside: I'm probably in the minority here, but I disliked assistance while I was street-sweeping, even when there was no xp-leeching involved... Yup, I'm guessing losers like me running around tossing speedboosts, adrenaline boosts and the like were probably very annoying then. :D I DID unde...

Re: Character Slots

I might be in the minority on this, but i rather fancy the idea of having to pay real money for extra character slots and costumes. I have always been a fan of consumption-tax as it's paid by only those that want to do whatever is taxed and I see this as a dandy way to support the further developmen...

Re: Who Were You in City of Heroes?

Is it me, or are there very few freedom server posts? My wife and I played on freedom so that we could always get into a task force. It had a good sized population. That's the biggest reason I jumped from Liberty to Freedom after a few years. Liberty had a GREAT core group of very memorable folks b...

Re: The best things about CoH

Lots of good mentions here. The Costume Creator was indeed how I jedi mind-tricked the wife into playing. As soon as she sat down, saw the endless options, she was HOOKED. We spent a good number of years running around the City together being super. I wish I'd have shown it to her earlier! I think t...

Re: Control Powers

While Ice (cone slow) and Fire control (targeted-aoe slow/area of denial) had OK slows, my absolute favorite slow came from Earth control. Quicksand had that great targeted-aoe cast that enabled casting from around a corner to mitigate the return alpha-strike while doing double-duty to reduce the DE...

Re: New Healing Powerset?

I'm encouraging our community to give new people, and unusual builds, a try on teams. I will be doing this myself. Oooooh, does this mean there's hope for my version 2.0 of Captain Knockback? This was a CoX nrg/nrg blaster whom purposely slotted extra knockback into EVERY power possible. I remember...

Re: What was your travel power of choice, and why?

In CoX, I was always partial to teleport. While not as cool as the others, it was incredibly versatile in many situations. Once I got the hang of keybinding, I become a precision-teleporter with ultimate tactical mobility. Roots couldn't stop me, slows didn't phase me and there was nothing like it f...

Re: Inspiration Questions

I am very taken with "inspirations" but I understand the need for distance from existing IP. My next choice would be "revelations" followed closely by "exaltations". To me, both have the feeling of the hero looking inward for some deeper truth..."revelation" would be realizing that if the hero doesn...

Re: Control Powers

1. atomic. Darktower, in what sense are you using the word atomic? I.e. smallest possible piece of a larger system? Something else? It would help to know thatto understand what you are getting at I'm thinking Darktower meant that each control-set had very slight variations on the same abilities ......

Re: Should SoH give rewards for teaming with new players as a method of making the new people feel welcome?

There's also another way of helping folks out that I was VERY fond of in CoX...."unteamed support". I used to spend hours cruising the low-level street-sweeping zones randomly buffing/healing lowbies with my kinetic and empathy toons. I was very careful not to do anything that would leech XP away fr...

Re: Inspirations as food question

I'm late to the game here but will throw my two cents in just for giggles. I agree with the notion that edibles in the heat of battles are mood-breaking for me. The CoX style of "popping Inspirations" was very easy for me to get behind thematically. I'm surrounded by baddies and getting my butt kick...

Re: Poll - Which information would you like SoH to track on a leaderboard?

Hmmm, I've never been one to care for this type of information. One of the GREAT things about CoX was that it permitted a very wide range of playstyles from gamers of varying ability. Pretty much all that was needed was a heartbeat and the capacity to read/understand chat and one could immediately p...

How often do you look for new information on Ship of Heroes
Only when I succumb to the nauseating waves of loss and longing for a certain superhero MMORPG, killed-off in its prime, that would ruin all other MMORPGs for me.

So, pretty much Daily.
