Re: Travel powers?

Fast travel speeds are of course pretty nice. But if you make flight faster than the trains, that would mean that nobody ever would use trains. The solution is obvious: Speed up trains to "ridicoulus" speed!

Re: Beta end of year: What to expect?

Thank you both for the replies although most of my questions remain unanswered, I guess the aswers to those are just not 100% known and you want to be carefull with your communications, so it's kinda OK. It would be nice if you could tell us more when you are able to.

Beta end of year: What to expect?

On facebook you still say that beta will be around at the end of the year, I suppose you mean 2018, since you want to launch in 2019. The videos that you show are quite impressive. But are you really almost ready to start a beta server? I am a bit sceptical but obviously hopeful. "End of year" is pr...

Re: Heroic Video

The VO alpha is there yes. It's very old as well. And there are very few updates. They are posting "internal" updates that we alpha testers do not see for a very long time. The current alpha is working but it is very boring at the same time. The city isn't too bad, but game mechanics are very uninsp...

Re: Client and chat language

It may not be common knowledge in the english speaking world, but almost every other country teaches their kids english, often even mandatory. So finding a translator *from* english to practically any other language for a chat channel should be pretty easy... and for annoncements it might not even b...

Re: Make some powers perma question

If we have the possibility to enhance one power as much as we like + the ability to make that power available at all times, it's pretty easy to see where that will lead. Of course i will enhance my best damage power with all that i have and stop using any other damage power. They might as well not e...

Re: Consequences of being defeated

Maybe if you die, you have to go run a remedial mission before you can gain XP again? So you don't really lose XP, you just lose time that you could be gaining XP.
An xp dept accomplishes the same way easier.

Re: should we link achievements with perks?

I voted for that 1% per 5000. I took it as a given that you will limit that to something sensible like 10%. I am not that worried about such boni since players who will achieve it will be max level anyways.

Re: re-spec poll

For testing power sets i have a different idea: Make a special zone, lets call it testing arena, where everybody can make max level characters from scratch that only work in that zone. The zone can have "real" mobs or just test dummies, whatever is easier to develop. That arena could be explained as...

Re: AE Theory

What i am worrying about is the potential for user created missions to generate a lot more XP than standard missions, making them the easiest way of grinding XP. A lot of COH missions were like that, leading to an empty world. What i would do to prevent this: Make an arena where people can create mi...

Re: Regarding for special achievements/perks, what kind of specials would people be interested in being able to attain?

It seems important to me that those perks are not perceived as a must have, so they should not impact game play very much or at all. So i am all for visual things, costumes, fireworks power or something like that. It can be cool but it really should not be vital.

Re: P2P or F2P?

You could allow free to play for all for a limited time on a dedicated server that is used only for that purpose. Nobody would farm on such a server as it is pointless.

I am curious if the game can run (with low settings of course) on intel integrated graphics.
