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.

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 [...]
