Greetings again, my long life gaming buddies from Cryptic!

So Im back to CO after a long break and I like a lot of the improvements to the game...yet, I can't help to think that the Vehicles/Devices etc can be expanded or improve some way...

The all seem to go for the more Science Arm Tech theme... which is cool if your a Arm/Science Tech Champion... But I am a bit surprise that this has not been expanded into the Free Form concept, which is the strongest and most popular alluring thing this game has!

Ask your self this:

What happen to the Mutants, Transformations or Mystic Champions who do not rely on such tech?

I would say add a Fiery Motorcycle/Horse/dragon like the one Ghost Rider or some of the most popular heroes out there has, but it be more of a travel power since this summons are for transport than combat...

Or maybe add the option to TURN some of the travel powers into Mobile weapons, I can totally see the Bat flight, flying skull among others to have some type of defensive/healing buff or damage dot to enemy effect depending of the type of customisation you add...

Sure, we have the famous Devices but they lack the most important feature customization... why not introduce a free form Vehicle or Device...where you basically custom when you go to vehicle mode or device mode?

Ever wanted to transform just like the Device the Vampire gives you I mean you have to admit that power this device gives you where you change from a Blood magic spell caster to a Hulking Vampire Horror is pretty well made, I say its brilliant! The only problem is it has a visual set on how you look... Why not expand on that?

Another suggestion is add the Device Unique Powers and visuals as an Archetype, BUT the only difference is that YOU CHOSE how it looks! It be a nice incentive to buy a unique powers or it could be an unlock for doing/completing certain things, or just by buying the device you unlock it etc... This will come with unique custom unlocks to fit the theme of that Champion unique powers, I know it could be possible to implement since I notice that the devices have an *inside unique Archetype built* intended already to be useful at higher Levels... well you get the idea right?

Also Powers should all sync together in some way or another not just cosmetically, this will make freedom form even much more attractive, as it stands a lot of powers even though are very cool they are not practical in the game or plain useless which is kind of sad since you will tend to see players with the same choice of powers since the one's one would like to mix don't mix at all...

A big example of this is the ultimate "Energy Storm', very nice mechanic but too limited... why not expand on that? Like Poison, Stagger, bleeding, Fear, Particle... etc, etc...

I guess the right term for these powers is not useless there more of unfinish... (Oh and don't even get me started on the forgotten power "telekinesis", by all that is heroic WHEN WILL THEY MAKE THIS POWER MORE FUNCTIONAL, add a teleport objects like in CoH [R.I.P.] or anything, GOD i wish some of the cool stuff CoH had would have migrated to this game) Why do I throw a Psionic Knight Spear and not create a Therakiel Psionic sword to smash them? Where are the heavy weapon Psionic Version...? And the list will likely go up from there...etc...you get the idea right?

Focus on the concept of "Freedom", this game would be TOP on the MMO lists out there...only because it lets players really make the Champion they wish to be... I think all powers should have some sort of mechanic to sync together...

Again, the Device, "change into a Vampire" is an EXCELLENT example of making powers sync with each other... that Bloodgorger transformation is PERFECT way to combine the Bestial/Infernal/Shadow/Rage brawl Tree together into functional fuse powers... I know you did this with Mental adding the Menton Giant Mental Projection, but why stop there with the mental power? I know the evil alternate Witcraft has a similar power which I find very cool! Not to mention all the cool extra stand alone powers powers you have made as devices that ARE the example of a cool MIX COMBO power or may an Advantage or even could be a awesome way to create a Unlockable Ultimate Form/Power... Example: If your Champion Mix any of the EGO/Dimensional/Magic they could unlock the Giant Mental Projection but for it would buff also Magic/dimension powers? The powers are already there in game by devices, etc... expand on it, use these powers as the missing links to these combos mix of current content!

I know it would take A LOT of work to get all powers to sync with one another, BUT MAN, this game would skyrocket if they pull that off!

Point of this suggestion EXPAND on your already AMAZING cool Free for All concept and neat things you already added! EXPAND on this Vehicle/ships/Device system by adding more customisation...from there you could go to an almost limitless unique champions! Also this could help expand the almost abandoned Nemesis System...by giving him a Transformation/Ship /Device form... as to his minions depending on your choices...

THIS will open up a new market for the Z-Store as well as the Questionite/In-game stores, just think about it Cryptic... I always been a fan of your work since CoH (R.I.P.) and I know all your resources are aimed at Star Trek and specially Neverwinter Online or so the community and some of the moderators is rumor to be said... but I believe in you, you guys have like the BEST ideas and concepts I ever seen in the mmo gaming industry... it just, like every good ideas, needs more refinement! It annoys me and it frustrate me to no end, that STO and NWO have all these attention, updates and lore base expansions while CO is left behind with just as much lore and possibly same or even more potential than the others? How much potential you may ask; Well what MMO out there lets you almost LITERALLY create ANY famous Hero/Villain/Fantasy/etc... of any movie, cartoon, anime, game, etc, etc...? ANSWER: NONE CoH is DEAD and DCUO is well basically the classic Trinity tweak to make you believe you have that freedom, other MMO... COPY PASTE, million times over with a different package! Point is the potential is there, the content is already IN GAME, grasp it, USE IT, YOU CAN DO THIS, seize IT Cryptic!

Anyway keep at the good work and dont worry I know you have other priorities and this things may take some time to come out...but I'm a patient player and fan... thats why I did the Life subscription even before you when free to play... I wish you success in all your endeavors!

Best Regards,

0z

    Motorcycle - they already said they can't do ground vehicles

    Horse - even less likely than motorcycle

    Dragon - Considering it would need to be animated, and would need to play a landing mechanic...... would be cool, but seems really unlikely.

    They're all really cool ideas tho :o we can always keep hoping that "can't do it" turns into a "here it is".

    Just like the character select button

    And all the things it made us think were going to happen but never will, even if we mention the character select button a million time :O

    It'd be neat if that's all it took.


    "We just... we just can't do it... I've been trying for months and it just won't work."

    "Character select button."

    "Oh wow, look! A bunch of animal mounts just appeared in the game! :D"

    Animals are, in theory, doable.

    The limitations are to have them only flying and hovering, never landing.

    Then you need only animations for movement and they don't have to align with the surface.

    So, basically, pegasus or dragon, or other flying beast. A beast-shaped vehicle, to be precise.


    Mounts can be animated, in fact rotating rotors are animations.



    I think, sooner or later, we'll see flying mounts as vehicles. After all, you can only produce so much jets, bikes, and hover tanks.

    Sad but true. But we can always hope.

    Wow thats really neat!

    Man I wish Cryptic did a program where they let passionate players like you submit content with a provided tools as they do in Neverwinter but with the intention of being evaluated to be added to the real game! hahaha one can only dream! :biggrin:

    Anyway its a good start, this dragon actually...I mean I see the vehicle thing being a big thing in CO so it be cool to expand on it like this! Thank you for sharing this really brings my hopes up...

    Like I said it be cool to just expand on what we already have... and this is a very cool start! :biggrin:​​

    Super cool.

    I wonder if NWO assets could be imported into CO.

    OMG, OMG I WISH!!!!! IF ANYTHING could be imported from NWO to CO it be EPIC! Specially the combat system, I love it!

    The only thing I don't like of NWO is the forums there... the moderators sure know how to demoralise and crush ones hope of anything in there... thats why i stop playing... everything there seem to be filter and control by the moderators D&D Zealotry...deleted post or comments, rude comments, favoritism, abuse of privileges, they don't want to add a suggestion forum and the list goes on, you name it they done it, its almost as if they want to control what comes out of the game...I lost my trust, I just can't play a game that seems allow people to control my fun, expectation, even if the answer its NO or your in disagreement, you don't have to be mean or do all that stuff I witness in that game... "sheesh" ... I don't think ill return there until I see does Moderators are permanently remove and see more friendly ones, after all its volunteer work I'm sure there are a lot of to pick from that are professional about the forum stuff...I almost went to the Higher ups to complain with prof and everything, how many have left or stop playing, how much that affect the income or how it affects it etc... hahaha... but then decided its best I just stop playing and take a looooooooooooooong break... I was taking it to personally, almost like I was working in my current profession instead of just relaxing or have fun and thats was when I realize it was time to move on... :confused: and remember CO my BUDDY! :tongue:

    BUT the game is such a beauty so well made and more importantly it has all the visual stuff and creativeness Cryptic always offers in their games! SOOOOOOOOO yeah if it could come true and they transfer stuff to CO it be super AWESOME!

    Yup. I'd totally say a lockbox or Drifter's.

    Hell, dunno if not a limited time event. :biggrin:

    1001 people would endlessly complain "because magic is dumb" or "Why didn't you fix this totally unrelated thing I have been complaining about!?"


    ...ok maybe it'd be just like 4 or 5 people that would complain...but they'd each do it 1001 times.

    I think it's even too expensive for a lockbox. Sounds more like something that would cost 5000+zen

    If Cryptic adds flying beasts, they need to do a pig. Think of all the "when pigs fly" jokes that could be done. I'm also waiting for the flying toy clown car that carries you and 20 other people.

    The sad thing is this might even be true. With any other team when they say "can't" they really mean "not willing to devote the resources necessary". However they can't seem to even make people walk during cutscenes. If this is an actual can't they should turn in their Dev cards.

    So been thinking of my suggestion:

    Since the vehicles are all basically Arms/science Tech... I guess if it was expanded to Mystic or Mutation transformation the weapons could be different... or they have to be re-skin... it be silly you riding a Dragon or transform into one and shooting missiles...maybe it could be tied to the crafting specialisation or something in does lines? :tongue:

    Also HIDEOUTS why can't OUR NEMESIS attack us in the hide out? In DCUO you get players to invade your hide out... so why not expand ours? with defencive weapons sidekicks/summons etc...
    Nemesis I think is one of the most original ideas I ever seen in any game! Its just sad it has not been expanded further...maybe add a rating system where players who confront your Nemesis rate them so the can BECOME a RAMPAGE VILLAIN or something in does lines...

    Also I'm scared to even mention it, but here goes... make a Nemesis for you to play with... SEE THE CO world and do unique quest from a the point of view of your Nemesis... Play him and see how he takes down the competition and become the MOST POWERFUL SUPER VILLAIN of all...and ones you complete all this quests your NEMESIS could be qualified to be a RAMPAGE VILLAIN this will also open up to maybe US invade the NEMESIS HIDEOUT etc, etc...

    I really don't know how much work this would involve but definitely I know it make the game more active and interesting specially for the PVP area... as it could open up to an open world PvP where you use your nemesis to fight all Champion you find, invade their hideout etc or is that is to much just enter the PvP modes as your Nemesis...

    Well you get the idea right? What you think guys?

    They're probably too scared to. They barely have a chance against us out in the world.. they probably don't want to see what would happen if they mess with us on our home turf.

    That would be an expansion... we don't really get those around here. I'm personally not in favor of playable villains because the game wouldn't really allow for true villainy. As heroes we go where the crimes are and stop them, so it makes sense that we work on a mission-based structure. Villains completing missions on the other hand... let's just leave that to DCUO.

    KITTY!!! Your Champion is so cute I want to hug it to pieces, when I was playing with you in the alert!!! :tongue:

    AHEM, sorry about that... LOL :biggrin:

    Yeah your probably right, Better stick to the main subject; To work with what we already have in the game

    I just wish Cryptic/Perfect World would dedicate their efforts at least a year as they have with Neverwinter this game has so much untapped potential and we seen what Cryptic is caple off!

    I love to have some of the powers/moves, armor and quest lines NWO have... obviously Champion lore wise! :rolleyes:
