Re: What was your travel power of choice, and why?

I almost always took superspeed and super jump together. I remember having so much fun with super jump the first time I picked it, being able to scale tall buildings in single bound and all that . Teleport was always awkward to me with the ground targeting and millisecond you had to recast it before...

Re: Devastator and Defender overlap?

Yep, we try not to stay up at night worrying over this, but on the other hand we were discussing it just yesterday. We want to make each of the AT's distinct. Right now we don't think that will be too hard since we are not attempting to replicate the COH system of powers and inherent abilities. Can...

Re: What didn't you like in CoH?

I did not extensively play with the mission architect, but I sat in many many many farms throughout my days. Looking back, and I think this is the key discussion point regarding the mission architect, the rather easy ability to power level characters in CoX was probably a bad thing. It was nice for ...

Re: Devastator and Defender overlap?

Just saying everything will be fine. CoH had the same thing. things turned out all right. things will be fine when we do it here. In practice you may be right. We'll see. I also can't help but wonder if "altitus" will spread in the same way it did in CoX. If the Archetypes are just mirrors of each ...

Re: Devastator and Defender overlap?

I worry about how to make both of them effective while still remaining distinct. Bingo! While there was a lot of overlap in CoX in the later days, it didn't start that way and I think, honestly, they started doing it as a cheap way to add "new" sets to each archetype. For example, for a long time t...

Re: Devastator and Defender overlap?

At first almost all devastator primaries will be defender secondaries, and vice versa. This will get as many powerset combos into player's hands ASAP. However, as the game continues after release, I am pretty sure there will eventually be unique sets for every AT. This makes me a little apprehensiv...

Devastator and Defender overlap?

Looking for some information or clarity as to whether the same powersets that Defender's can select from as their primary will be available to Devastators as their secondary? If so, how strong will they be relative to each other to make sure both archetypes have a place on a team?

Re: What didn't you like in CoH?

This is one of the most daunting threads I've ever read. :) We'll do our best to get it all right, or close to it, at the start, but few things made by the hand of man are perfect from the start. One of the thirngs that I always say on this topic is that we will definitely try to have a "no surpris...

Re: What didn't you like in CoH?

Students have lots of time but not so much money. Workers have more money but not so much time. Maybe that is why almost every surviving MMORPG is pay to win in one form or another. (I count the "must buy expansion packs to advance" approach of World of Warcraft and Lord of the Rings Online as pay ...

What didn't you like in CoH?

There's lots of posts and discussions around here honoring the things people liked and miss about CoH, but what things didn't you like? What lessons learned should the SoH dev team apply from what CoH did wrong? For me, I always longed for some quality end game content. In a game where you're not gr...

Re: Combat Controls

While no one mentioned it, I think this set of two powers is useful if a healer is on a team and needs to make a sudden bio-break during a prolonged combat effort. Or if a sleeping child suddenly wakes up. I had both of those requests during my time playing COH. Definitely. These are subtle, but mu...

Re: What kind of power you are hoping to see or want to suggest?

As a likely support player, something akin to Kinetics. There was some waste in the CoH powerset, namely repel and inertial reduction, but Kinetics could keep a team moving like a freight train. Speed boost pls. As also a likely tank player, I hope for a more active primary powerset. A lot of the de...

Re: Top 3 things you want included

1. A means for casual players to keep up : I am a once hardcore player who will return casually when this game launches. My monthly subscription is likely worth just as much money as someone who will play 16 hours a day, so I'd like my game experience to be mostly the same too. Rested XP is nice to...

Re: What archetype will you build in the CCT Beta?

Tank or Support.

I always feel more valuable in one of these rolls. Chasing big damage numbers was never my thing. Saving somebody else's hide just provides a better shot of adrenaline for me.

Re: Defender secondaries

I can't even count how many hours I spent in Fire/Kin controller farms. This was obviously a very specific combo for immense, sustainable, AoE damage and speed but demonstrates the potential of being able to pair crowd control with self/team support. I'd be tickled to play those power sets in revers...
