What is your favorite method of learning about the combat alpha?

Postby Golden Ace » Fri Feb 02, 2018 11:08 am

  • I want to see a video of devs doing the alpha fights
  • I want to see a video of devs and supporters doing the alpha fights
  • I want to see a video of devs and bloggers doing the alpha fights
  • I want to see a livestream of devs doing the alpha fights
  • I want to see a livestream of devs and supporters doing the alpha fights
  • I want to see a livestream of devs and bloggers doing the alpha fights
  • I want to see a summary with pictures, gifs and analysis of the alpha runs
I went with livestream of devs and supporters doing the alpha fights because while I will not be in the alpha I can at least participate by being annoying and asking questions to those that are participating,

How long is the cool down on that ice power?
What power made that big blast?
What's that boss called again?
Was that a Starfleet Uniform? etc.

15 minutes coming up just about now

well maybe I need 16 minutes since my last post...

Agreed!
More videos please!
And it would be cool to see some testers in there

livestreams are nice but some of us work so make sure it's vid too- and obviously supporters and devs, reward those who donated! I know I didn't donate nearly enough for that but reward those who did!!

I voted livestream and supporters, but I think that the press, such as Positive Gamer and Suzie and Bill from MMORPG.com should get into several of the earliest runs, so they can report back to the fans on their sites waiting with bated breath for a CoH successor.

I think we're going to try to do all of the above. But it is very interesting to hear what people think.

We've had some hilarious runs among the dev team, like the time when one of us set the damage on the Yekus way, way to high and they killed Ambassador in like 10 seconds, and then chased Meltdown and Iris through the Science Park. Or the time we discovered that the Nagdellian Lieutenants were bugged -- undamageable when the respawn. That was awkward.

But we're working the bugs out as we go. Of course, Murphy's Law says that we will find some more when we test with non-devs. But that is part of the fun.

Lol. sounds like some fun bugs!

I voted for livestream with players, which is pretty easy to save to video for those that miss it.

I went with Live stream with supporters (bloggers can be supporters too) because the stream will also be a video when they're done.

I would like to see the dev videos but i would also like to see some analysis if possible. If there were two options i would have picked the top and bottom ones.

Definitely would like a video to watch afterwards. Livestreams are OK but if there's a low frame rate, it really bugs me.

OK,so it sounds like at least some of you want a video where things go well, perhaps accompanied by a newsletter saying what happened? And then one or more livestreams as well?

Sounds reasonable to me.
