Re: July 2018 Milestones

Thanks for the update! I'm really excited about the Nanites video. Previews of new powersets are always cool. And can't wait to see the city at night. I wonder if it will be bright and colorful like Hong Kong with glowing reflections on the water, or something more subtle so you can get a clear vie...

Re: What fraction of your time will be spent on SOLO play?

Probably around 50%. CoH had the best pickup teams and the best ability to form teams. I'm hoping this game will have similar capability.

Re: Top 3 things you want included

1. Lots of various play modes -- I loved that in CoH you could just do a little "street sweeping" if you wanted to , or do a mission, or join a TF. This accommodates all kinds of play styles. 2. Difficulty/type slider -- Maybe I want an extra hard challenge, or maybe I don't. CoH had a difficulty sl...

The fireworks effect

One of the most fun things about CoH was the overstimulation, or the fireworks effect. There was so much happening graphically and sound-wise, that your brain would enter saturation. People love this! Just the opposite of some other games' archer, where you see nothing and hear a simple thwack sound...

Re: Character choice question

I'll probably do what I did when CoH came out: try out different power sets until I find one that looks and feels the most fun to me. In CoH, I ended up with an ice/ice blaster, just because of they way it looked and played. THEN I looked at the powersets LOL. "Blasters were so razor focused on dama...

Re: Travelling

If you are waiting for SoH to come close to COH when it closed in terms of the number of city zones, alien planets, etc., it is going to be years. there's just no way around that.
I'd rather it take time and be done right, rather than blast out a lot of bland, generic content.

Re: What PC would be needed

Wasn't it Nexgen back then?
No, AMD bought Nexgen in 1995, ten years after this chip was done. I joined AMD in 1984 when they opened the Austin office.

Re: Who Were You in City of Heroes?

Some games made the user's login name the real name, so if you wanted to send a tell to that player, you ended up using their account login name, instead of the character's toon name. I think that is a mistake.

Re: Character Slots

I have mixed feelings about XP boosters in the cash shop. If you have 10 characters, and I do want lots of character slots, do you really want to slog all 10 through the same content? If the game is broken into zones, you would have to do the same zone 10 times. It would make sense to be able to spe...

Re: Combat

The question about balance hinges on what kind of vision do you have for combat? Some games want all characters to be able to do everything. Or, if there is PvP, all characters have to be equal. ESO went with the all players can do everything route. Every class can pick up a healing staff and they a...

Re: Friendly Fire?

Perhaps it could be a debuff that high-level enemies have. Or maybe just certain encounters. Friendly fire in normal circumstances should be off, but if you were fighting boss XYZ, he might turn it on for a bit with a debuff power.
