Re: The one thing I dislike about CoH, & what I hope SoH does better?

One thing that I really disliked about CoH, especially at low levels, was MISS MISS MISS MISS MISS. There really needs to be a streak breaker in there and it needs to be set LOW. Heroes shouldn't be whiffing at air most of the time. CoH had Streakbreaker limits. As far as I was able to test, Streak...

Re: Secret real COH server has been active since 2012/2013

Yes.. I think i was a little hasty with my condemnation of AE power levelers. How other people play has no impact on my game play whatsoever. I had a hard time finding groups while everyone was in the AE system. But that was near the end...and I was red side. All of these things together made it ha...

Re: What stage does the game need to be in for you to play at launch (not beta testing)?

I believe most historians refer to the release game as Issue 0. The first major patch after release was called Issue 1: Through the Looking Glass. This issue raised the level cap from 40 to 50 and introduced Peregrine Island. My first character (Rad/Rad defender) was at 31, and had basically given u...

Re: UI and Related

As others have said, great work so far. I'm particularly happy with the treatment of the map window, because I'm reasonably awful at navigating. However, I do have a few questions: You mention that the Main and Options menu windows are not movable. I'm not certain I'm seeing those, unless you mean t...

Re: Anthem Article

BioWare changed for the worse once they were acquired by EA, and went drastically downhill when Ray Muzyka and Greg Zeschuk left. Developers who make games that they want to play make great games; corporations who make games they think will make money do not.

Re: UI and Related

Excellent to hear things are going well on the UI front. An obvious question from me, since the obvious sometimes gets overlooked: Sliders are generally found in options for scaling the size of all windows at once; will we also be able to resize individual windows? For example, I left most windows i...

Re: What was something you wanted to do in CoH but never got the chance?

I played CoX from just after I1 went live (my son introduced me to this new superhero game) to shut down, and I always wanted to do a TF solo. If you accepted the TF, it seemed to me that the devs could have provided you an option to do the TF via team or solo. If via team, you would progress throu...

Re: Controllers?

As of the last round of debating: Controllers are planned, and due to public demand I believe they have been moved up the priority chart but are not promised for release - not ruled out entirely, but the team is unwilling to promise when they aren't certain they can deliver. I am unsure where we sta...

Re: "Meat Shield" Power for Tanks?

No thank you. Do not want.

I suspect that you will have a difficult enough time balancing Defenders and Devastators without allowing Tanks to add supplemental buffs.

Re: How do you feel about...HERDING??

Issue 4 herding was a snore-fest for anyone who wasn't a tank. Even for blasters it was pretty boring. "You guys wait here, I'll go get everything in this zone." Yawn. Post aggro cap herding was pretty pointless in most instances, although there were times when moving a spawn either toward or away f...

Too late/difficult to ditch the traditional mmo auction house for a CoH style double-blind consignment market?

Re: What is "platforming"

In general, I'm not a fan of platforming. However, solely in the context of SoH, I am indifferent. While I'm not particularly proficient at jumping puzzles, I would think that platform jumping is almost meaningless in a game with Flight and/or readily available jet packs. Also, in CoH, I always logg...

Re: Devastator and Defender overlap?

In City of Heroes, primaries powersets were 20% stronger than Secondaries. Also, the inherent abilities of each class made their primary more effective. Defenders were not looked down upon in that game, even when Corruptors were available. In fact, the class that suffered the most from Corruptors b...
