Defender secondaries

I had a thought about defender secondaries while chatting in the discord and wanted to bring this up here; When controllers (eventually) debut the general idea is that they'll have defender secondaries (dominators were control/damage right?) - what do people think about giving defenders the option t...

Re: Aggro mechanics

Not sold on a single target Taunt. a ranged AOE Taunt and a Melee AOE Taunt (think Gauntlet) is more than sufficient. replacing either one of them for a single target taunt is a bad idea. I have no issues with adding a single target taunt to the other two but I would probably never use it. a ranged...

Re: Did you play the closed MMORPG City of Heroes?

Wasn't my first MMO (my first were korean games that went international like Ragnarok Online and NexusTK) but it was my first 3D / western MMO.

I'd seen friends play stuff like Asheron's Call and Everquest but those didn't interest me.

Let's talk about MTX

Let's talk about MTX for a moment. It's an uncomfortable topic, but in today's gaming industry, it's a conversation that needs to (eventually) be had. Also forgive me if I ramble or this gets long - it's 7am and I'm still nursing my morning coffee. I'll preface this with saying that I remember readi...

I grabbed the SSD - my board has the M.2 slot and I haven't been using an SSD yet

Re: What was your travel power of choice, and why?

I always played kinetics, so it was a combination of Inertial Reduction and Siphon Speed ;)

I used my Pool powers on stuff like Stealth and Leadership

Re: Preliminary Login Test Date

We have a very smart community here. :) On a note unrelated to either Diehard or the best saying of 20th century German generals, we expect to send out the link for registering for the login test today, probably before lunch in the eastern US. OK, now that I delivered the message...I wonder if Dieh...

Re: Controllers

My most memorable controller was a gravity/ radiation character named Gravity Gibbs (NCIS was hot back then). In some ways, the combination of control and radiation for debuff was awesome for team play. With just a smidge more damage this character would have been fine in solo play. I overcame weak...

Re: Controllers

I concur. I don’t think pets should be Anywhere but with commanders. Let’s make it a clear distinction between the classes I could go either way on this, as long as there is some kind of interesting, relevant capstone if it's not pets. Controller pets were always the 'fire and forget' in that you s...

Re: Controllers

I have a love-hate relationship with controllers. I loved a good controller. That being said the majority seem to just spam their powers Willy-nilly Before I could lock down a group. I found that the majority of controllers didn’t play well with Tanks. I get a Group locked down And suddenly they ar...

Sure, there may be several participants who want to livestream I sure hope we're not streaming an insoluble technical problem. :) The code team is nervous, but confident. I was also planning to record and post the login test to youtube. I'd also be happy to post my system specs and use the EVGA Pre...

Re: Controllers

Jumping in to this VERY VERY late but here's my 2 pennies - in CoH I (almost exclusively) played Gravity / Kinetics - after 32 when I got the singularity, and because I had kinetics for the damage buffs (Fulcrum shift at 38) I always did well in solo play or as the only controller in the group. I wa...
