Controller if available.

If not, then Support as long as it's debuff-oriented (Dark Miasma, Storm Summoning, etc).

If the support sets are buff-oriented, then I will get the support from the secondary and play a Devastator.

Account 1 I choose a Tank reason:
Tanks are tough and is a very forgiving build to use to learn the game.
Account 2 I choose a Healer reason:
Too support the Tank ;)

I was originally thinking of devastator, but then when I saw that there would be a spear power set I was thinking that sounds really cool and would be fun! So I chose brawler. :)

Probably tank or devastator, but I want to review the power sets first.

Also the character we create, does this count as the "reserved name" that donors get? Just curious.

Seems I always end up as a tank. Must be in my genes...

Welcome Knyghte.

Looking at the pool results so far, it seems we have a pretty good selection of archetypes, with a slight high point on devastators, which might turn out very well for all of us.

In CoHV I loved playing Dominators (my all-time fav archetype). However, I did enjoy playing Scrappers in CoHV. So, first I will probably roll up a Devastator for distance damage. Then, if allowed, I will roll up a Brawler for the up close and personal touch.

My favorite character in CoH was my first, an ice/ice blaster with lots of control powers.

I'll try to make something similar here.

Of course, as a raging altoholic, I'll make several of everything :D

Definitely a devastator. Loved blasters and corruptors. Always found glass cannon types to be very rewarding. Though I'm sure all the classes have some staying power.

I loved my controller back in CoX, but I don't like controllers in DCUO. So if controllers work like they did in CoX (or similar), then controller (if available). Second would be devastator.

Agreed, my first choice is a Controller if available, Devastator second.

Haven't played DCUO though, how are Controllers different there and why don't you like them?

I was the opposite - I did not care much for playing CoH Controllers (I did level cap one though) but loved playing DCUO controllers. My best character on the PC is a Controller.

DCUO controllers are better at single target mez and do way more damage than CoH Controllers. They also are the 'batteries' of the team, raising mana and mana recovery via team and individual buffs. They are much better at DPS and debuffing the bad guys than buffing anything other than mana or controlling a crowd. A caveat; every character in DCUO can be a DPS. So if your team already has enough Controllers, you can switch to DPS mode and put on your DPS gear and have fun.

My best was a Batman wannabe (Martian Manhunter and Wonder Woman are also classed as Controllers), and Batman is classed as a Controller, using debuffs and technology to win the day. My best also used Acrobatics for a travel power, which is a Batman-ish way to get around and is wildly fun.

If you liked the CoH Controller type of play, then you might not care for DCUO Controllers.

The final form for Controllers is not yet determined. They may be like Controllers or Dominators. Or they may be Controllers with 2-3 ranged attacks in their primary set. One proposal I saw was to let the Controller take a Control primary and either a buff or a DPS secondary, in effect letting the player decide whether they want to be a Controller or Dominator.

Whichever way they go, if pets (and there is no guarantee Controllers will even get pets) are the reason you liked Controllers, you will likely have to wait at least 3 months, and maybe up to 8 months, after release to get them. Combat pets probably won't be in the game until the code is ready for Commanders (Masterminds), and they won't be in the game until at bare minimum Issue 1, probably Issue 2.
