    No mention of the new boxart piece and banner for the Steam version of CO?

    Am wondering who those extra heroes are and where's Nighthawk and Kinetik.

    I would like to see the game icon itself and one of its previews to be changed to this as well. Perhaps give this CO forum a new backdrop as well. It's really time to ditch the Eidolon look as it's already what, 3 years old now and we don't even have an Eidolon to advertise anymore.

    Maybe the heroes are us.

    Ok first and foremost, why adding these mods to the questionite store
    second, why adding these mods to the q store
    and third. why adding these specific mods into the actual q store​​

    Oh Ok?
    You are really trying to make those Threat-Reduction mods popular

    I noticed the defender in this shot is the original concept art defender, not defender 2015 or the Classic Defender with the metallic stomach plating.
    Eidolon got fixed, one of the sliver linings of 2020. Now if we live through 2021 can we get a foundry?

    It's almost as if when you have a streak of bad decision making you sorta become predictable o3o
    Why is this a bad decision exactly? I'm NOT opposing you, just trying to think how this affects negative to the game

    Nobody gives a damn for the Threat-reduction mods? (I certainly don't, not even with the stat boosts)
    Is it because most of those mods are from specific events and alerts-open mission of the game, and now people will farm those events- even less? lowering their content popularity even more?​​

    Personally, I'll never have a use for the threat reduction mods, but it will be nice to be able to get the threat increase mods outside the events. I find it dreary trying to farm enough for a r6 of any of those. Can't imagine going after enough for a r7+. I wonder if they will add the generic confront mods to the Q store? Maybe they'll add some other stuff to events to make up for making it easier to get the mods now?

    I would note that they also added the threat-increasing mods, which I suspect people will buy.
  • avianosavianos Posts: 5,551 Arc User
    Yeah the Powerframe focused Threat-increase mods are the best deal out of this addition​​

    The plus side about these mods is the +threat ones. The others are garbage. At least I won't have to farm Gravitar to get Brute Force anymore

    Current patch seems to have a gigantic memory leak. I keep randomly spiking to 6-20 *million* packets (from a normal range of 100s to 1000s) as measured by /netgraph. It doesn't seem to have anything to do with what i'm doing at the time. That's a spike with a 3-4 (standard) order of magnitude increase for absolutely no discernible reason. (it's a 10-12 computer science order of magnitude spike, measured from the highest 'normal' packet flow). Even running in lowest graphics with half-resolution background turned on doesn't do anything about the problem.

    Needless to say, getting 10 million packets randomly dumped on me causes the server connection to choke, and i get dced. I've had Harmon runs that went fine and Harmon runs where i dced 3x. (Which, given the last fight is a lockout, is pretty much unplayable.) And random dcs have been persistent since the last patch, but very rare and rarely occurring multiple times before that. I can only conclude the last patch is the culprit.

    Meanwhile, my internet connection is otherwise great. I've got solid connection to my wifi (which has worked fine for years on the game), and no other evidence of connection suffering (including great ping times to google, no problems playing youtube videos or streaming music, and no other evidence of connection difficulties). In short, only my connection to cryptic's server is suffering.
