Re: reserve a character name

Global names for sure but with the option to hide them from view. Fine to show them in chat, however. I can't remember how CoH worked to be honest but I never had an issue getting a name? Globals also have the advantage of seeing others in SG needing team mates so you can pick an appropriate alt to ...

Well, that sounds like it could be a serious time-saver! :D

Thanks for the update :)

Re: Kritika Online

I don't know, I grew up playing Amstrad CPC and Commodore 64 games. Wore out plenty of joysticks but I also played plenty of games with Q,A,O,P and Space bar controls. Ugh, only now do I realize how ergonomically awful that setup is! :p Controllers definitely have their place in certain games, parti...

Re: Thoughts on VO alpha testing

Marketing is definitely one of CoT's weakest areas, but as you say, they are most likely focusing intently on building the game. It seems SoH has definitely been able to find the balance between the two, which is why I am so enthused by them, because I know that marketing is necessary for the long ...

Re: Missions on Planets

While we're on the subject, is there any chance that the FHS Justice could be making a return to Earth? Having seen the backstory, I'd love to see it. There's scope for some quite *cough* familiar scenery. :)

Re: Holiday Worlds/Events?

Oh wow, special events and temporary powers were great fun! Mass snowball fights in Atlas Park were great! :D

There's so much potential for temporary or special 1-use-per-day powers with this setting. I can't wait!

Re: Names of the archetypes & Secret identities

I agree with Controllers being a skilled class to play. From what I remember when trying the class out, like Pyrion, I could solo individual mobs, maybe 2 but groups just didn't happen. I don't think that's a bad thing as it encouraged teaming.

Re: What is everyone playing right now?

As far as MMOs go, CoH was the only MMO I really enjoyed. I played EQ2 for a few months with workmates but found it tiresome. I tried WoW but gave up after a couple of days. I'm tempted to try TESO. I play single player games 95% of the time these days because I've not found a sense of community lik...

Re: Thoughts on VO alpha testing

I can understand that. I have the most hope for SoH out of any of them. The others do look like they have promise, but SoH really stands out. Still willing to try out other ones, for the same reason I play CO every now and then - to fill the hole that has been left by CoH. I would not discount VO o...

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

I would like to see a Gravity Control (one of my fav.) power set similar to what CoV had.
+1 :D

I didn't play much as one myself but Gravity toons really made things epic.

Re: The End of July

Ok Solari who said you can like Knock back .... I'm the one that likes Knock-Back ... man competition ... ok fine you can like it to but not as much as me though ... Can't say my Claws/Super Reflexes main suffered too much at the hands of knockdown/knockback, but I loved dishing it out with Focus a...

Re: The End of July

couldn't stop looking at the teaming VID i was SOOOO impressed... Yes I've watched it about a dozen times now! :) It just needs knockbacks/knockdowns and gravity launches and we're on to a winner! Watch some of the epic CoH battle footage on youtube and you notice that what made it feel so heroic w...

Re: Thoughts on VO alpha testing

Oh, I know what Alphas entail, I just avoid crappy ones :lol: If you guys enjoy it, more power to you. I am just not a fan. I have been testing alpha and betas for quite awhile. He asked for our thoughts and I gave him mine based upon what I saw. Well I'm not sure if I "enjoy" it because there's no...

Re: Thoughts on VO alpha testing

With the latest patch it actually feels a lot more solid. Obviously it's alpha so there's not an awful lot to do. Some people do seem to struggle with the idea of what an alpha test is so probably shouldn't be playing. :p I think they've done the sensible thing by locking out powers that aren't real...

Re: Paragon Chat

Yeah Pocket D is cool if it's busy but I find it far too depressing logging in unless there's an event going on. I logged in last night trying to figure out which area had the little break beat theme but got really sad after a while. :(
