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...

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

Well, virtualization has improved quite considerably since 2012, so it's possible that people will eventually be able to get it to work in a virtual machine. But for right now, yeah, that's what is required. It's a mess. That it uses MS SQL instead of PostgreSQL or something makes me feel dirty. :P

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

I'm sitting on paragon chat and reddit now. It seems the code is now out, although not the mission data base. From what little I can understand the server specs look a bit beyond a desktop machine, but it will be interesting to see what comes of this. I've always felt the first successor project to...

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

From what has come out the past few days, the server code is ugly. It's a miracle that it's worked at all. You have to remember that work on City of Heroes began back in 2000, before Windows XP was even released. I've seen Microsoft SQL mentioned multiple times. That alone is a nightmare itself. To ...

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

Massively OP has a new editorial up about it and how the news has fractured the CoH community.

Even if the CoH community did die as a result of SCoRE, here's hoping that the Ship of Heroes community will live and thrive for many years!

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

This news is making the big time. New articles about it on both Motherboard and PC Gamer . Personally, I'm not sure what to think. I'm glad that City of Heroes and our characters are still alive in some fashion, but the whole thing feels underhanded and sleazy as well. In any case, I'm glad for Hero...

Most puzzles are fine. Jumping puzzles on the other hand can DIAF.

Two Factor Authentication

This probably isn't a high priority right now, but as Ship of Heroes gets closer to beta, would there be a possibility of adding two factor authentication to accounts? Whether that be an e-mailed code like Steam or GOG.com, or an app like Authy or Google Authenticator, or hardware based like Yubikey?

Re: reassigning power colors

And we've even toyed with the idea that over-healing a teammate would buff their accuracy, damage, or something, like a temp power. This could have negative consequences where a healer will be viewed as lazy if he "only" heals team mates to full. Yeah I have to agree with this. It would add legitim...
