Definately more than 20 hours per week but the most of it at weekends.

I really can't give a definitive number as my play time has slowed way down. But I imagine I will shoot for 12+ hrs a week but it may end up more like 3-7hrs a week.

Definitely 20+ hours a week in the beginning, more likely 40+ hours a week for a while. But then I will settle down to about 20 hours a week...

I have to expect 20+. It will probably replace much of my time on Homecoming.

Seeing as I'm retired, and knowing my time spent on my current, and past games, it'll be well over 40hrs a week, even more perhaps if the game is interesting enough to me. Currently I play Black Desert Online and Overwatch, and I easily spend 70 in OW, and gosh, w/overnight afk'ing (a feature of BDO for lifeskills) 80-130hrs a week in that game.

Little perspective, in BDO I can spend, like today, a Saturday, where I spent in RL, 4hrs building our home gym, watering trees, making lasagna and watched "Bad Boys for Life" during that time, I afk horse trained in BDO the entire day, for 9hrs, but as I type this, my actual 'online' play is about to start w/some mob grinding, lifeskills (money making) and some other stuff. Then from there, I'll prolly spend a few hours, 1-3 on OW before bed. But, again, BDO is set up for afk'ing alot, where SoH wont be, and OW certainly isnt, so gotta keep that in mind. From my memory though, I would probably spend anywhere from 2-6hrs a day in CoH.

Missions will come in a few varieties, including story arcs from the Founding Five superheroes, task forces for teams as small as three players, enemies to fight in engineering tunnels for low-level teams that want to just have some pure combat (a la CoH’s sewer runs), and reward missions that can be found in the city that promise rich rewards for players but will also feature some high difficulty. And speaking of difficulty, players can adjust the difficulty of their missions depending on their preferences or team makeup.

🤔So now the DFB runs, will become DIET? Death In Engineering Tunnels? 👀

I am all aboard on this one! 👍👏

Yes, you can join my SG! GA is ready.

I've read that for many new MMOs 20 hours a week or a bit more is a common average.

I think we will likely be able to support this too. Our current issue is that a lot of our missions seem to be either 30 minutes or 60 minutes long. Speed runs can be done of course, but I'm talking about playing normally. We have not created a lot of 4-5 minutes missions though.

With our current system it seems to take us a couple of months to get a new arc built and de-bugged and then deployed. So whenever we launch we will have more missions and content in the hopper, under construction.

We are kind of swamped with stuff, so I have not mentioned this, but there are new costumes in the CCT.

So really, we should all look around and not assume that what we saw in March and April is what we're launching with. At a guess, maybe eight new costumes? So far.

Oh, and some single pieces including some new headgear.

Thanks for that tidbit of information. Can't wait to see them :)
Will it be possible to change the costume after character creation at launch or do we need to get it right first time?

it looks as if you can edit your character everytime before logging in.

That hopefully got fixed from last time we had a beta. I tried it, and it failed every time, saying "a character already exists with that name" as if I was trying to make a new character instead of editing an existing one.

You mean At the Load Character/Select Screen, correct? Where you select the character, and then Click the Option Button to Edit it?

:idea: :) ;)
