Poll: Which Archetype Will You Create First?

Postby lunawisp » Wed Apr 25, 2018 9:58 am

Based on what you know right now, which archetype will you create first?

I'll create a defender first. It's what I preferred playing (till I discovered the controller!) It's also what my character's backstory dictates.

  • Tanker
  • Blaster
  • Scrapper
  • Defender
lot of votes on this one for a poll that just started.

Went with Tanker.

also why didn't we use the correct AT names? TANK, BRAWLER, DEVASTATOR, DEFENDER

They're nicely spread as well, that's quite reassuring. Should be quite easy to create well balanced teams if this is reflected in the community as a whole.

This is the third time this poll came out, and the first time it was a loooooooong time ago.

I'll repeat my previous answer.

I plan to start as a Brawler. What are you barking about GladDog? I thought you were a tanker at heart!

That is true. But, we always make mistakes on our first character, and melee DPS seems to be the most forgiving with mistakes. And, melee DPS is also an AT that I love playing. ESPECIALLY IF THEY HAVE DARKETY DARK DARK BRAWLERS! I can't tell you how much fun I used to have running my Scrap-trollers. I liked it so much I level capped two of them, and had a third one in the 30s when CoH shut down!

Once I have played a bit and am comfortable with the game, I will roll my Invul/ SS tanker!

I actually hesitated on this. My first character I make will be Ace I'll have to respect him into an ICE secondary. but I might actually run on a brawler for a while.

Currently, I'm thinking Devastator, but will probably quickly have a Brawler alt.

I tend to have alt-itus if CoX was any indication, so what I start with is merely a gate opener.

This is my Defender. There are many like it, but this one is mine. My heals are my best friend. It is my life. I must master my abilities as I must master my life. My team, without me, is useless. Without my heals, I am useless. I must use my abilities true. I must heal better than my enemy who is trying to kill my team. I must heal them before they kill my team. And I will.

:shock:

I plan on starting with a Tank.
Why mainly they are tough enough for beginner play.

I'm going to expand my answer a bit...

I plan on making 6 characters. One of each AT along with a 2nd tank and a 2nd Defender. The last two spots (assuming we start with eight) will be reserved for future ATs.

I will be taking advantage of the pre-launch CCT to have all 6 of these characters designed and ready to go, so I can log them in one at a time, one right after the other! I plan to have all six characters registered in the game within 5 minutes of release.

The first one I will actually play, however, will be a Brawler. The Brawler will have a rare name that I WANT, but I will only be able to reserve two names. One Defender and what will eventually be my main Tank will have their names reserved ahead of time.

Golden Ace, we made a small mistake and used the old Archetype names. That's on us. You have it right.

We have asked the question before. We do that deliberately to try to calibrate if the opinions of the community are changing over time.

If they have anything like CoH did I will be starting with a Tanker.

My first CoH character I kept was my Fire/Fire tank. Loved taunt and burn. Everything fell so nicely, TOASTY!

Using CoH terms it will be

1: Tanker
2: SCrapper
3: Blaster
4: Defender

I dont know about most of you but I plan to have a stuffed friendslist within a week of launch of people wanting to play
