Invasion Event Newsletter

September 15th, 2020|

Invasion Event Newsletter With this newsletter, our Invasion Beta Event has officially ended for now. Over the three runs, we observed that Devastators were overwhelmingly the most popular character archetypes for the event (Tankers were second), and that the community has a preference for us to make the fight more structured and less chaotic. So we are working on that, as you see in the list below. “This one isn't an invasion. It's just a street party that got a little [...]

Fight the Berserker on August 29th

August 26th, 2020|

Fight the Berserker on August 29th The first run ended… quickly. On Saturday the 29th, we will have our third run of the Nagdellian invasion. We’ve made changes in response to the first couple of runs, and we think we have fixed most of the crashes, so come on down and see how it looks on the 29th. The invasion will be a recurring event once Ship of Heroes launches. Now the invasion has increasing [...]

Operation Valhalla

August 12th, 2020|

Operation Valhalla On Saturday we will have the first instance of our next public event: an alien invasion reminiscent of the massive invasions and task forces of City of Heroes. To prepare for this event, we’ve created a big battle simulator within Ship of Heroes to test and perfect a few elements for larger invasions and big battle situations. We call our simulated invasion “Operation Valhalla”, and we are using it to figure out how big a “big battle” can [...]

Internal Video Six – How Fast is Too fast?

May 9th, 2020|

Internal Video Six – How Fast is Too Fast? In the recent SoH community event, we got some feedback that our combat is now too fast. So we went through the various powersets looking for the fastest one. Twin Swords currently delivers the fastest combat experience – the Blink and Slash power puts a Brawler right on top of enemies without warning, and the other attack powers have short recharge times. In other words, a Twin Swords Brawler is a burst [...]

Internal Video Five – First Test of Riot at the Arches

April 21st, 2020|

Internal Video Five – First Test of Riot at the Arches We just finished a surprise community event in which we let anyone with a forum ID from the SoH forums test out the current state of Ship of Heroes. During this event, we did some additional unscripted testing of our riot event, in which players must face waves of enemies. In this video three devs and nine players responded to the call to test the riot code for the [...]
