Re: Ship of Heroes Current Game UI | We need your help!

Green health bars, blue/purple/orange for energy, in decreasing order of preference. I much prefer the look of the round map, but we had square in CoH, so I have no doubt I can live with it :) I like the round power icons over square, but if you want something a little bit funky, why not hexagonal? ...

Re: General question about combat?

There's definitely grounds for having at least some powers root you. Though there is some tactical and game-play advantage to having some wind-up, AoE powers be adjustable before they fire - I reference League of Legends as a game, love it or hate it, which has a *lot* of experience in designing abi...

Worm and Other Superhero Fiction

I imagine by now most people with an interesting reading and superheroics have encountered Worm , but if you haven't consider yourself introduced. I've read a *lot*, and I have to say this story is a very strong contender for the best story I've ever read. It is very long (~20+ standard novels), yet...

Re: Sidekick System/Play in any zone

I'm pretty sure this is a no-brainer. The draw of an MMO is the fact they let you team up with others (otherwise you'd just play skyrim). So the more people available to team up with, the better. I also can't stress enough how heroic it felt answering a call to take down a giant monster or rikti inv...

Re: Take my money!

I'm already planning how to explain to my wife why I have no money left in my account...

"But, but, SHINEY!"

:D

Please don't do a "design and name a signature hero" as a top-tier reward. I really can't afford it... :P

Re: Pay to Play

Add another vote to the subscription pile. I paid for two subscriptions to CoH right up until it went F2P (and then only one - the second account was for demoing the game to friends, and the occasional enhancement transfer before base storage). I've actually stopped playing games currently - I basic...

Re: So, since I've been missing CoH like the rest of us...

Also, maybe I misunderstood what you were saying, but the powers of two are not linear. Incrementing the exponent makes the values, quite literally, exponential. Indeed, but that's the point - what the enhancements and powers would increase is not the absolute values, but the exponent. Since the ac...

So, since I've been missing CoH like the rest of us...

I've been spending my time planning on what I would do differently if I could have a chance to do it over. And, well, here we are :P So, here's my heavy on the math suggestion for how to do a nice scaling system for defense/offense. CoH had three systems for lessening damage: defense, resistance and...

Re: Character Bios

I think characters having a Bio section in character creation really did add a lot to the attachment you felt for your character, and was a large part of why CoH's community was so amazing.

Re: Guardian Server - City of Heroes

I think I had a character on Guardian at some point - I went through well over fifty toons though, so it's hard to keep track. I mainly played on Infinity though, but starting a thread for every server would be a bit silly :P

Re: Dominator Archtype

On the subject of control powers, how are you planning to handle them? While it is a different genre, I think a lot of lessons can be learnt from something like LoL or Dota2. Like them or loath them, they're hugely popular, and their lessons well learnt. Control powers are /very/ short - no more tha...

Re: Cel-shading toggle off?

Its as if the people who worked on the game thought that everyone who liked superheroes must be a 7 year old ben-10 fan. Hey, I take offense to that. I'm a 40-year-old Ben-10 fan, thank you very much :P But yeah, not a fan of the cel-shaded look in Champions Online. I thought I'd like it, but it ju...

Re: Say No to Gambling Boxes

If the boxes are /unpaid/ for, or at least, can be earnt that way, I have no problem. LoL recently added boxes you get by getting a high rating for a game, which is fine, IMO - it's an extra that I didn't get before. But yes, boxes you would pay actual currency for, with a random reward? Yeah, no.

Re: Who Were You in City of Heroes?

Played from beta to close, many many alts but only ever got two characters to 50 (on infinity) - too much fun playing them (so yeah, they were incarnated out the wazoo): Ebon Angel - Dark Melee/Regen scrapper, with Fear/Dark pool and incarnate powers. And three resurrect powers :D You might put her ...
