Re: Update on the CCT Beta

While we wait foir TrueSKY to be fixed, we're going to send out a newsletter showing some of the facets of the CCT, with a focus on creating heads and faces. Faces are tricky. For those of us who loved COH, we know that faces we not really distinctive. But SoH has a very powerful tool for creating ...

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

Re: Ice Movement Slide and Ice Skins

I think the OP might have meant ice armor like in CoH. Personally i always thought that such armor graphics have been a flaw of CoH, because they do hide the whole costume (looking at you especially, granite armor).

Re: Let's Talk About Badges

I agree with healing badges. But support characters are not just about healing. It would be nice to have a "damage prevented" badge for those characters that do defense or resist buffs.

Re: Toggle Debuffs?

Toggles have been great. And the whole toggle theme is touching another big thing CoH did right: A defender did not have to have great heals in order to be effective. He/she could simply have such efficient debuffs that healing was barely needed. I loved that part. I loved my storm defender. Put up ...

CoH greatness, one often overlooked thing done right

When i was playing on the new private server the last few days, i suddenly realized one thing that CoH did very differently then any othe MMO that i played so far. The world, the characters, the baddies... they are all kinda cheesy and cartoonish and often very exaggerated. And that is exactly how i...

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

NCSoft is forced to act. The cat is out of the bag. The server sources can be downloaded, i actually saw where they are. Apparently you need to put some more work into the sources to establish a working server, but the basics are out. So NCSoft basically has 3 choices: 1) Play Whack a mole and try t...

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

The server situation is unclear at the moment, but it looks like the panic server shut down was not really needed. NCSoft didn't complain yet, it was just a troll. The CoH reddit has more details.

It's possible that a server will go back online pretty soon.

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

I am pretty split on this. On the one hand, this is obviously stealing of intellectual property. On the other hand, closing all servers and not allowing any emulations and not making a sequel was a dick move from NCSoft. The big question is: Why? The only thing they got out of it was bad rep. If the...

Another article popped up about this:

According to this, the full server source code might become available in a few weeks.

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

Re: Private servers - they tend to lack the overall community and permanence of a real, full game. There are exceptions. If you have a dedicated quality oriented team, private servers can be a blast and thriving. There is another MMO genre that has more or less vanished. The genre of very social, s...

Well, and this is not a permanent answer, our character in the video flew up onto a rooftop and then demonstrated superspeed by jumping from rooftop to rooftop.\. You could not jump vertically to a high rooftop right now, even with superspeed. What we are thinking is that once we get into more regu...
