Re: Are consoles the way to go for MMO?

Yeah. Games are either designed for consoles and ported to PC, or designed for PC and ported to consoles. Both are terrible on their non-native platforms. Best to just stick with one, hopefully PC.

Re: The leveling, augment and infusion video on MMORPG.com

Slow leveling is easy. You can disable XP so you don't outlevel everything. I disable XP every five levels, at 9, 14, 19, 24, etc. That way I don't outlevel any of the content I want to partake in. It still only took me about four weeks to reach level 50 that way, to the frustration of my friends wh...

Re: Do you prefer detailed graphics models, or more flash?

Looking at the old game, I was struck by how basic the character models were, and how little detail the environments had. But the graphics effects were over the top. I didn't mind having a simple fixed face all the time, since it is mostly obscured by all the effects going off in a fight. I didn't ...

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

... Make me want to actually pay attention to the story...not just click to the next jumbled text just to hurry along the mission. The missions that stick in my mind are the ones that make me pay attention to the story. This is my main complaint too. CoH has a lot of action, but the stories seem ve...

Re: Controllers and Commanders

Anyone that knows me from City of Heroes knows that Masterminds are my favorite AT in the game. As such, I am extremely looking forward to Commanders. I know that it will be a bit of wait past the Ship of Heroes launch, but it will be well worth it. It's better to wait and get it right than to rush ...

Re: CoH Homecoming server costs

I want to say that this is not a corporation you are dealing with. It is not an LLC or such. I would be very hesitant to hand over credit card or bank info to someone that is untraceable. If they want your money and you are willing to give it, I would wait until they either have a Patreon or PayPal...

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

Three will make me happy as long as there is some sort of system in place to let people play missions added later into the game that they may have overleveled, like the Ouroboros system in City of Heroes . I.e., if there are no missions in the game at launch, and I have a character at the level cap...

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

I'm hearing a couple of different complaints about the COH AE system: 1. Other players are having fun their way, and not my way, and this is bad because they are not available to join my non-AE team or task force. 2. Other players are using AE as a powerleveling exploit, or perhaps only running one...

Re: What kind of pay model would you prefer?

Option #1 all the way. Free-to-play creates a horrible "community," and lifetime subscriptions isn't a sustainable business model. Look at The Lord of the Rings Online . The hardcore Tolkien fans all bought lifetime subscriptions, so the publisher had to add a bunch of microtransactions later on to ...

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

My nutshell observations on COH v 25.2 to Lvl 15 * The game missions are missing a lot of NPC's as I recall from COH's heyday. * Bad idea that Double XP weekend was, if they wanted to introduce old and new players to it. The Mapserves and Crashes killed the game for a lot of today's generation of i...

Not to mention that eventually 32 bit support will be killed off, like macOS.

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

OK, the soap opera seems to have cooled a bit. Now I find that I was looking forward to the daily releases of new information. I don't see any new news on the recovery of old COH today. Does anyone? Tony Vazquez of the Titan Network announced tonight that they are in formal negotiations with NCSoft...

Re: Worried about the community in MMO's

The amount of people on the Internet has increased exponentially over the past fifteen to twenty years. Of course with that explosion of people, the number of jerks, trolls, and people with the attention span of fruit flies will also increase exponentially. The switch of MMOGs from subscription-base...
