Re: Street Fighting Video is Live on YouTube

This looks really good. Probably the best looking video yet. If I had to complain about something, it would be that the hero doesn't look too "heroey". The fight takes a long time to kill what I presume is 3 minions. A real superhero should be able to one-shot at least one of them. Depends on the r...

Re: Pets that Fight

Attack current enemy target
Attack attacker of defensive target
Attack highest health enemy
Attack lowest health enemy
Attack highest rank (boss/lt/minion) enemy
Attack lowest rank enemy


Can't think of anything else.

Re: Crafted Infusions

I like the idea of more niche infusions that can be crafted - you don't have that annoying "ugh, that useless thing" feeling when they drop if you can't use them, but there is still a way to have them if you need/want them.

Re: Fighting Sounds

Variation in combat sfx is always good. It's amazing how good the human brain is on picking up patterns and repetition.

Re: Custom Graphics

A similar question is: can we change the colors and look of the powers? The old CoH allows this.
Yes, there will be power customisation - probably limited at release, with more options as time goes on.

Power Combos

So, in the speed of combat post, there was some mentions of power combos. Since it's a completely different topic, I didn't want to go into it there, but it is a very important discussion. It comes down to complexity. In this article, M:tG desginer Mark Rosewater dicusses the ten things every game n...

Re: Speed of Melee Combat

Here's a chance to weigh in on something important. How fast should melee combat be? Speed of what? :P Speed of movement, speed of power animations, speed of power recharge, speed of kill time? Now often those all go together, but they don't have to, necessarily, and they all affect slightly differ...

Re: Iconic Powers

What about the gameplay is it fast paced like dcuo or is it auto pilot combat? It's pretty fast-paced - there's no basic "auto-attack" so you can't just target an enemy and then go make a cup of tea :D Powers recharge quickly (light attacks can easily be down to a couple of seconds at least), and p...

Re: Crafting

I guess the first question to ask is: what is there to craft? Is this going to be a gear game, with armor and weapons to be crafted? Or is it like CoH where you really don't have armor and weapons, so crafting is basically for stims and enhancements? Can we craft badges? Like CoH - enhancements are...

Re: Crafting

Agreed, best stuff in game should be craftable. I love that idea. Or, it matches, but craftable stuff has room for some additional variation. On a MUD (text-based MMO for you young whippersnappers) I used to play, the stuff you crafted was equal to the top-tier loot, but you could make it exactly to...

Re: Custom Graphics

Allowing just any graphic to be displayed on your chest is also opening up a minefield of moderating issues over and above the copyright side of things - I can absolutely guarantee someone is going to see how long they can get away with porn as a logo sooner or later. It is an awesome idea (I'd love...

Re: How Much Time...per Character

The time taken to set up a new character depends on how many costume slots it has. I have no doubt that some of us *cough* will feel a sort of 'unofficial' obligation to use all the slots :lol: There are 11 slots in a costume. And yes, I would feel an obsession, er, obligation, to use them all as w...

Re: Super Landing!

I know air-control is "unrealistic", but we're already in a superhero game set on a city in a spaceship, so we should be pretty flexible here :P The current lack of jump control is absolutely horrible, and is probably my least favourite thing about playing SoH currently. It is contrary to every game...

Re: Male characters that look like women

Politically Incorrect? What is this Twitter? No, this is a family-friendly community where people should feel comfortable.
