Re: Planning Game Mechanics for Missions

SoH won't be using 'gear' per se, they will use an augment system similar to City of Heroes enhancement system. Especially early, there won't be a lot of OMGWTFBBQ augment sets. And Consultant has said there won't be very much stuff you can get in drops that you cannot make in the crafting system. I...

Re: Release Date

If you donate to the $25 level you will have access to the character creator a couple of weeks early to set up characters, so day one you can log them in immediately, reserving your names. If you donate to the $50 level you get one reserved name that no one else can take, no matter what naming syste...

Re: Release Date

The game will be free to acquire, but require a subscription to play, from day one. So in essence, it will cost $14.99 (or whatever the monthly fee ends up being) and include a free month. There has been talk of having Founders packs, and if you donate to certain levels you get a month or two to giv...

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

All and all, why now... ?? That I can't understand at all. A true successor is finally starting to take shape and then this is dropped out there...... I just feel like none of this was an accident. As I said earlier, I love love love CoH, but, let it RIP. My support stays with SoH. This timing like...

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

I think this has actually brought a bunch of people over here to donate for the first time. I had suspicions of it from posts from both facebook, and here. but Consultant confirmed it (once he got his laptop working again). No question that my loyalty is tied to the heroic gang that will be travers...

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

In other words. This will be just like a normal game switching from open beta to live. Everyone starts even. If you get in and have carefully crafted a character, go in and save it! According to a rumor that is substantial enough to be reported on MMORPG.com, the private server admins are talking to...

Re: Worried about the community in MMO's

I'd like too add that since the game won't have PvP at release, it will be a lot less attractive to griefers and jerks.

Re: Tempest Legion alumni?

I was in Tempest Legion later on. Was in a smaller supergroup which sort of dissolved as time went on earlier in my COH career. Think I probably played as Morris the Spider(Arachnos Soldier) most in the last few years and I had tons of tanks. Yep, I remember one or two of your tanks :) HEY DOC! It'...

Re: Can We Have A Legacy Naming System?

Maybe this would be a good poll question? It would probably require a lengthy lead up paragraph so people really understand what they are voting for. This poll question relates to the naming policy in Ship of Heroes. *Having unique names means that no names can be duplicated. This means that names c...

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: Who Were You in City of Heroes?

I think that most of the fans of this game are looking forward to a game that is friendly to all playstyles. Casual, mainstream or hardcore, there is a place for you on the FHS Justice!

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

If the code is released I would be tempted to make my own one person micro server. Either login to, or remake Ace. Turn the taunt limit off and do a few dreck runs. But without other people it will get stale fast Invite me, I'll sit on the dock and leech XP from you :) Seriously, I could host a 16 ...

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...

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

Lets look at this from NCsoft's perspective. I am quite convinced they are writing off the value of the IP over an unknown period of time. If so, they have no interest in furthering the IP. HOWEVER; they need to continue to 'own' the IP. They may very well let this slide, under conditions. What cond...
