So will there be anything special for the Champions Anniversary this year?

Double XP?

Maybe some costume pieces?

Will Sapphire be gracing us with her musical talents again? :D

    If she sings like she talks, I'm going to have to agree. She easily has the WORST voice acting in this game.

    "Will Sapphire be gracing us with her musical talents again? :D"

    Every year until now I have almost prayed for this to be tossed in the circular bin. Now though, I'm kinda curious about what the reactions of the new players will be to this...."concert". Oh and also Cryptic, it's still probably the most cringeworthy thing I've seen in gaming (top 5 anyways) and clocking in at under 3 minutes, the song is not a concert.


    "CHAMPEEEEEEEEOOOOOOOOHHHHHNNNNNS!. Ok I gotta go, but I'll be back later!"

    It's that last line that just kills me.

    Gods that terribly phony accent.

    The one, under-three-minute song is a plus, IMO. I don't think I could take an entire concert from the folks responsible for that song.

    It's more fun if you show up in your Drunkest Costume (and you KNOW you have one of those :cool: ) and chant "Take It Off" during the show.

    Some brave man actually recorded the horror of Sapphire's anniversary song he was never seen from again .__.

    I am a fan of the concert. My Favorite part is when its over! :D

    I am still waiting for the time that DJ Madbot reveals himself to be Foxbat, but I think he is just too embarassed to be associated with the concert to reveal himself.

    and sockmunkey, I would love that! Reboot is still on of my favorite shows ever.

    I don't know why Sapphire has all the hate as far as her concert goes. I for one like it. It's a very cool little thing that they did for us players.

    If you don't like it, don't listen to it.

    ya know, given the overall campy atmosphere of the game, i thought it was cute. Played straight it was bad, but for the atmosphere ingame, it kind of worked. it has a very "that one episode in every 80s cartoon where they form a band and really just sing the shows theme song but still everyone loves it " vibe. plus, in the copycat world of mmos, i cant think of any other mmo where they had a main npc throw a concert.

    That was taken off because people were upset that it was just another offensive passive template. So the devs said they had something in mind for when they did an offensive passive review. That was before the Second Great Dev Migration.

    But
    I liked that passive so I agree with this statement!

    Yes. Defender's voice actor is one of the best in game. :)



    I think Sapphire's concert would be a lot more tolerable if she didn't try to play it like she's talking to the crowd through the whole thing. I don't like it in real life when people do that in the middle of a song, much less in an mmo while I'm waiting for an alert or whatever. I mean, objectively, she doesn't have a terrible singing voice. You just can't tell because she's busy yelling "woo!" and "the champions!" in the middle of it.

    Ok I don't get the constant disdain and dismissal.

    I'm being serious now-

    Imagine someone who likes to make red/black characters. Maybe new to the game.

    Do these comments seem welcoming?

    What if other players constantly expressed the sentiment....." Ugh....another wrestling clone w/ 90's hair and tights."

    If you were new, would that feel like a greeting? Or a blanket dismissal, callous, arbitrary and harsh?

    The Resistance Dr. Destroyer's VO + Defender's VO doing a rap battle? Awesome.

    And then have a duo version with Dr.D and Shady D vs Defend-R and Foxy-B
