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...

Re: Superspeed

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...

Re: Superspeed

Yes, for FX there are five options: fire, ice, darkness, lightning, and nothing at all. Each character can choose one of these. We actually discovered something while coding superspeed that we are grappling with. When a character is running along and then jumps, the jump can be extremely powerful. ...

Re: Entering buildings

I would like realistic building insides, but they are pretty low priority at the moment. Give us a playable game first. I fully support Consultant in his views on this. Making realistic building insides now could easily delay the launch for a whole year... it's a lot of complexity for only a minor g...

Re: What you want to see next question

The idea of eliminating the healing sets alltogether has merits if you consult popular comics. Indeed, i can't remember any dedicated healers among the popular heroes. Which may say a lot about our culture, really :o). This isn't just another comic though. This is a game. There are other differences...

Re: Your Devs Ask You

As a thought experiment I'm wondering what the game would look like if this approach was taken to all enemies in the game rather than just in a specific event. Instead of mobs having levels they would be stronger or weaker based on the powers they had access to in much the same way as characters ar...
