Re: The best task force/trials in COH

This isn't me... but it does bring back fond memories.

Re: Powers and Power Sets Suggestion Thread

I'd say we are long overdue for a plant-based powerset. I'd love to play something like Swamp Thing. Either a Tanker or Controller.

I wanted plant powers in COh, but it wasn't to be.

Re: The best task force/trials in COH

Oh no!

I'm so ashamed that I forgot the amazing Ernesto Hess task force, where you stop the Council from releasing the giant robot that they were building inside of the volcano. You fought nazis, vampires, and werewolves.

Who couldn't love that one. In fact that entire zone was so well done.

Re: The best task force/trials in COH

The Eden Trial was the one that started with your team falling down a mile deep pit, you fought through hordes of Devouring Earth, then saved the heroes who were trapped. Makes me sad now few people played these mid level trials, and even the shadow shard task forces. One of the unintended consequen...

The best task force/trials in COH

Morning everyone I'm curious what task forces and trials you most enjoyed in COH and would like the SOH team to take note of. For me, this is an easy question: 1. The final encounter in The Abandoned Sewer Trial. 2. The Eden Trial. 3. Terra Volta respec trial. These three were very well designed and...

Re: Be Honest - COH comic book

We all love our wives, but.... Wives do tend to make those kind of 'mistakes'. "Oh, honey, I didn't know that was your favorite shirt. I thought is was a cleaning rag." Yes, it is probably for our own good that the wives do these things, but somehow I feel that no matter how high I level as a husban...

Secondary Effects of Powers?

One of the cool things about powers in COH was that most of them had secondary effects. Remember?: defense reductions, resistance reduction, mana drain, slows, reduction in accuracy, chance of stunning an enemy. Each of these usually lasted only a couple seconds but they could stack and made us numb...

Re: Community Priorities for 2018

One of my big needs is a functioning side-kick system so that I can play with my buddies, no matter what. My friends and I are never the same level--it is just not realistic to wait for everyone else. Being able to side-kick is a must.... please. As an aside, I've only been aware of this SOH for two...

Can we talk about Instance difficulty & AI

One of this things that I found to be underwhelming with COH, especially at launch, was the ease of instanced missions due to NPC AI. Over time, some of this ease was removed with the introduction of new enemies and the ability to ramp up the difficulty of missions. But COH has always stood out in m...

Be Honest - COH comic book

...you enjoyed the COH comic book runs that came with your COH subscription, don't lie.

Even though I was too old, I enjoyed ever panel.

My only regret is that I threw them away before I got married - can't let the wife know all my secrets. Why didn't I keep those!?!?!

Re: Tanker

You're correct, Torr, that WoW and COH had very different tanking styles. Originally WoW tanks were very limited in their ability to control many different baddies at once, making the challenge (fun) of the game your skills to survive AND keeps groups of baddies focused on you. (Since then, WoW has ...

Re: COH's Biggest Flaw - Mission Instances

Thanks for the responses. I must admit, that I am a bit bummed at the direction that instanced missions seem to be taking. I understand the need to 'randomly' generate maps and content but I much prefer story-driven missions with completely unique maps. That is one area in which World of Warcraft wa...
