Re: Consequences of being defeated

I've generally been let down that MMOs have, sometimes, completely removed death effects, or nerfed them down to afterthoughts. I think the permakilling thing is a *tad* extreme, but losing XP should be on your mind when you throw yourself carelessly into battle. The CoH thing of needing to escape w...

Re: Will we have player created missions

If people put half as much effort into curing cancer as they do finding exploits in leveling, it'd have been cured in 1962. Anyway, I agree that it isn't something you'd want at launch. It would take so much testing and time to get right, when there are more important aspects of the game to be takin...

Re: User Interface Discussion

Yea, text - especially outside of the chat window - well, in general, scaling properly, would be nice. A lot of older games don't scale text very well. DAoC is all but unplayable at 1080p.

User Interface Discussion

One of the elements of any MMO is the usability and custom-ability of the UI. Almost any MMO that can be modded is modded extensively, and I'm surprised that developers sometimes make the same mistakes repeatedly. So, I haven't seen much discussion about the UI, how it works, should work, can be cha...

Re: What power from CoH do you miss the most and also which one the least?

As far as travel powers... least would definitely be teleportation, since it was very awkward and attention consuming (can't just set it to go forward) to use, at least to me. Favorite would be super jump (since it was extremely useful in missions or outdoors and made kiting mobs much easier). I'd s...

Re: Chat sounds, and how we miss them

I don't understand why companies don't look at the UI mods made in virtually EVERY MMO that can be modded and include those features default, like cast time on the hotbar or chimes when chat - or when a special attack is ready (especially one that requires a condition like a dodge or parry). Actuall...

Re: What power from CoH do you miss the most and also which one the least?

What I really miss is my ice blaster. I liked how ice allowed some measure of crowd control, which is necessary when you're soloing as a blaster. Ice plus speed (I preferred super jump) allows you to kite more effectively when you're fighting too many enemies. Maybe not the most effective, but it wa...

Re: Personal Housing

I'm not really into the whole uber-decorating, but I have a few things I appreciate in housing; shared ownership/access between characters, basic consoles (mail, market, basic tradeskill, etc), and prevalence of trophies, grant of minor buffs for logging there. Essentially, if you're familiar, with ...

Re: Team size Question

Going to the other extreme.... support for even 2-3 person teams would be nice. Sometimes you're just going along with a friend, especially if they are going to be leveling a support class, and you don't want to wait for a pickup group. EDIT: I realized that my statement sounded idiotic. Support for...

Re: Exploration ... places

Finding those out of the way places to get a badge or achievement or whatnot is always fun. At least, at first. Once you know where they are and can go after them, it stops being fun. But still having a tracking score of kills or locations or whatnot for fun/trophies/titles/whatever is nice. Warhamm...

Hello!

So I'm super excited about this project. After years of CoH and exploring all of the diversity and customization available... dunno how many times I played through it, but still felt a fresh experience. I loved being able to create characters to exact, well, character. Most games make you settle on ...
