Re: Combat Controls

I believe a follow command is very important for support character. Perhaps I'm ignorant here, being that I was mostly a solo player, but I can't think of any situation where using follow was better than simply moving your character. In CoH I used follow in three situations: I was dual-boxing; I wa...

Re: Planning Game Mechanics for Missions

Can we spawn enemies for higher than the maximum team size? So if the game allows teams of 10, can we spawn enemies as if there were 12 of us? And for GA: are you talking about in-mission ambushes (like the quantum rush at the end of the first ITF mission), or open-world ambushes (like the Kronoss T...

Re: Newbie: How does one get a playable account

From a purely selfish perspective, I really, really hope that subscription can be bought in blocks, as $15US a month is a very expensive commitment when converted into Australian Dollars. I'd like to see a 3, 6 and 12 month block structure where it's around $12US a month if bought as a 12 month blo...

Re: My First Kinetic, Passive-Healing and Aid Other

I remember my first Kinetic. She was in her preteen security levels and I was doing some sewer hunting with a team way back before 'Death From Below' was even a thought in a developer's mind. I picked the Transfusion power in order to provide some healing, the trick was it required an enemy to drai...

Re: Currently Watching Sword Art Online

During my week off I have decided to watch a few episodes, since I haven't watched a lot of anime recently. I started with a couple of episodes of an old series, "Spice and Wolf" which was intriguing, but failed to capture my attention. I will probably pick this up again at some point, though when t...

Re: Your Devs Ask You

Pre-post caveat: Much of this post is pure speculation based on anecdotal evidence and/or logic. I have no clue what the CoH devs did or how. Contrary to popular belief, all critters in CoH had levels, including giant monsters and Rikti invaders. In the case of GM's and RI's the level was obfuscated...

Re: reassigning power colors

In CoH it was possible to replace sound effects by placing a new file with the appropriate name inside the override folder; unsure if UI elements could be similarly replaced, but I think it likely. Would something like that work here?

Re: Video of Training or Re-Specing?

A few City of Heroes videos. These are all from the same series, and very early levels. I didn't look further on for more examples, since early or late it was basically all the same. Power choice level Another power choice Slot level followed by power choice level The CoH respec was basically the sa...

Re: SoH Social Building, or Location?

I think the police station in King's Row also had an elevator to the top of the building where the base portal was. It was possible to hop up the side of the building but far more convenient to take the free ride.

Re: The Next Few Things

As I recall, in CoH Taunt artificially inflated your place on the mob's aggro table (the PvE version of the Taunted status effect), generated a moderate amount of threat, and multiplied all threat generated for the duration of the taunt. Per Castle from the official forums: Threat = Damage * Debuff ...

Re: What was the single greatest achievement in the development of Ship of Heroes during 2018?

Going with something else here:

Surpassing City of Titans as the most anticipated superhero mmo (at least according to the Massively OP poll). A great job of guerrilla marketing in combination with development.

Re: Download Status

Mine started at a "blazing" 16.2. And every time I looked at it, it went down.

Finished though, and the client is currently up to date :)

Re: Baby it’s cold outside

Holly Cole version featuring Ed Robertson.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BoVacp-6f14

This is probably my favourite version of the song, although that may be because I really like Holly.
