Feedback on the invasion event

At the Beginning I had signed up, but didn't get a key. It takes me 8 hours to download, with my crappy internet. The previous SoH launcher started downloading the game Friday night. Turned out it downloaded the new game, and I got an email with a key Sat morn. I needed the key to get into the even...

Re: Operation Valhalla Keys Have Been Sent

I signed up, but didn't get a key. The SoH launcher from before starts downloading the game however.

Does that mean I get to play? Or do we need a special key?

Bottom left has 1.4.1.4, guessing that is the version number.

Re: The Next Event

I would like to participate, but probably won't be able to if we have to download the whole game every day. My internet is very slow, especially now, and since I work from home, I can't devote the entire day to downloading. In the last event, it took me over 8 hours to download the game, and I could...

UI scaling problem

The tooltips, top menu items, and power bars seemed too small, so I found a UI Scale function in the settings menu. It does exactly what I want, except I set it to 100% and now the menu takes up the screen, and the top half is off the screen. I can't reach it to set it back. Started looking into the...

Re: Thursday Evening, 8 EST in the US

It takes me 8 hours to download the game, so I only get a short time in the evenings to play. I'll probably bring a low level support character and just try to heal and buff people. Maybe can avoid some of the slaughter that way :)

Re: List of bugs I found.

I noticed the same thing about ice, the bolts seem invisible. The powers bar and the menus at the top are in such small font that they are almost unreadable. If I go into windowed/full screen those menus are totally unreadable. I couldn't figure out any way to enlarge them. With the powers so small,...

A smart patcher/updater would be nice

At my dismal download speed, it takes 8 hours to download the game. Working at home, if I pause the download to do some work, there is no way to resume the download. It would be great to have a smart patcher that could update only the files that changed, and to allow a pause and resume function. Pro...

Fantastic! no, really, Fantastic!

I've been playing the CoH restart, so this is from the perspective of someone who is playing the old CoH every day. This game, SoH, is beautiful. The city is beautiful, especially at night. I don't get that feeling very often in the old CoH. It was a blast to just run around, but then I found some e...

Re: Street Fighting Video is Live on YouTube

What I meant by not looking hero-y was the long time it took to kill the mobs. Them being higher than you so that you have time to use all your powers is the perfect explanation.

However, if I had to gripe about something, it would be that it wasn't obvious what level they were :mrgreen:

Re: Street Fighting Video is Live on YouTube

This brought up something I've been thinking about: how hard is the game going to be? At the beginning? At the end? I remember when I first started CoH back in 2004, my ill/emp controller had one attack power, and brawl. It took forever to kill something, even at my own level. Of course, by the end,...

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.

Re: Melee Combat

One of my favorite playstyles in the old CoH was the "blapper", a blaster who also has very powerful melee attacks. Although they can be killed rather easily, blasters have a lot of damage output. Some of them also have very powerful melee attacks, although this means they have to get close to the e...
