Re: Concerns for other games question

Progression. I hate when you play a MMO with 100 levels, and end up using the same skill rotation from level 20 up. I just had to re-quit LotRO because it was just the same 2 buttons over and over. I'd prefer to have different combinations and longer fights (which you guys have promised - but I went...

Logs and Stats

One thing that appears in some MMOs and not others - and that people have mixed reactions to - is having logs of deeds and statistics, titles, achievements, etc. For some it is just interesting, for others you can get awards, titles, social benefits, and other trinkets. Maybe costume pieces from get...

Re: Global location of members

Los Angeles, but based on my work/sleep patterns and game populations, I almost always play on European servers.

Re: Ship is too small?

I recall that the entirety of Skyrim is around 15 sq miles or so, about the size of Manhattan. WoW's Eastern Kingdoms (or Kalimdor, they're about the same) is 80 sq miles. The latter quote might be wrong, but it sounds right compared to other games. The nice thing about a ship, though, is that it ca...

Re: Target self

Auto casting heals to target of target etc would be a necessity.

Re: In game Product placement

Funcom put RL advertisement billboards in to Anarchy Online. Program stopped, probably because the player base was too small... but frankly, I liked the variety. MMO worlds can be very plain and without the kinds of advertising posted around you would find in ANY setting. At the very least, again in...

Re: Preferred game question

I much prefer having open options. SWToR and WoW changed from the tree system for an over-simplified mess that reduced options and class variety almost entirely. Rift maintained it pretty well, with mix and matching classes. I thought it works well. Better than the truncated single-path of current g...

Re: When did you feel most "Heroic" in CoH?

So many options.

Ending a good storyline with a big, known villain you've been working against for a while was always great.

So were tough battles with lots of enemies. Feel really powerful pwning tons of minions that keep action going for a while, making you conserve power for them all.

Re: Spawn in spot ??

Hopefully in a purely optional training area. Freaking hate non-optional tutorials.

Come to think of it, CoH did starts really, well. CoV not so much, but it was a good central location, a landmark easy to find, with access to a lot of low level content.

Music frequency

One of the things that I find really annoying about most games is how they handle music. Some play it way too little, enough to make it pointless and disabled - which is inconvenient if you have other sound effects, especially voice, since you can't just play your own mp3s in the background. So what...

Re: Travel Powers... From the beginning?

Gotta agree with OP - developing more powers after working and gaining them is far more rewarding (and easier to balance mobs in particular zones). If you can fly etc immediately... there is no room for growth, no reward, nothing to strive for.

Re: What are you looking forward to most in SoH?

Power sets. Being able to create mostly unique combinations and filling a type or role. Combat is the bread and butter, and finding new ways to approach combat is half of the fun. Interesting long-term storylines for factions are also important.

Re: Farming / Herding

Let's just be honest... Farming and Powerleveling.. ARE going to happen. It's not going to matter what the dev's tweak or play with. Players WILL find a way. And devs should be on it to adjust any known working of the system. I know MMOs that have gone a decade with blatant abuse. It is true that i...

Re: Graphics Upgrade before Live?

I can appreciate that, but my main point was that perfectly aligned repeating textures extending on a distant plane doesn't look like it has detail at all, very low-poly and plain looking. Items on the ground to break up the continuous surface goes a long way to adding depth to the view.

Re: Graphics Upgrade before Live?

The missing thing I noticed in the last video is kind of debris and texture variation on the ground, which is clearly something down the road.
