  • Like the person above you said.... If it ain't broke, don't expect it to be changed without breaking something. The idea is =great= in theory, but I'm sure "tech reasons" are to blame -- as they usually are. This game =rarely= profits from the technical advances made by other Cryptic/Perfect World products. Why should we…
  • I wish we had a way to report posters/mark posts as abusive. This dude here deserves a mod-smack, just out of principle. :rolleyes:
  • Don't mind him. He's not anywhere near as clever as he pretends to be. :) Your original point is one I agree with. I've seen this "road crew" working before, and they spend a lot of time repatching the same hole over and over, and using styrofoam to patch it besides... I'm skeptical of the results, but I'm glad they've at…
  • I'm a silver-turned gold-turned back to silver player, and I can say that the one thing I would actually pay for is "the ability to color my powers and change their emanation points", even if it was a per-character purchase instead of account-wide. If you actually care about "I'm called the Blue Scarab, but all my powers…
  • This is what a 'bad boyfriend/girlfriend' does: makes promises, and then breaks them. Cryptic has been spousally abusing us for months now. lol :rolleyes:
  • I'm going to guess that it's "blind optimism". :redface:
  • I'm pretty sure they already told us that "Part III" would be the end, and "rotated" in & out, like the other "special" missions (Harmon Labs, etc.) I'm not energetic enough to dig for a quote, but if y'all search for TrailTurtle (since s/he is the only person brave enough to post here) posts about the subject and you'll…
  • If s/he is on a limited bandwidth internet plan, and has uninstalled the game (because s/he hasn't been playing it in months), it =could= conceivably cost a cent or two to download the game. Also, if you're like my internet, and get less than 200kbps, then you don't want to spend 3 nights downloading a game to see if it…
  • ^^^This is exactly why people would hack. As long as parts of this game still require G (retconning, and fixing broken spec trees, costumes, so on), there are people who are willing to do anything to GET "G". It's human nature for some humans. Also, what will the "punishment" be? They get their accounts banned? Chances are…
  • PW wanted a superhero version of "Rusty Hearts", and On Alert made that possible for them. :biggrin:
  • Sir/madam, you'd better change your signature. Because you're PUBLICLY endorsing this bike, your sig now borders on hypocritical. Sorry, but that's how it looks. "Say no to lockboxes" turned into "OMG YOU PUT SOMETHING IN A BOX THAT I LOVE!!!". :rolleyes:
  • We've been trying to tell them this SINCE THE START OF LOCKBOXES, so I fear you're just shouting into the void that is Cryptic World. They don't really care about our input, they have 10$ of yours already, plus whatever else you've spent, plus whatever they make from people who don't catch on as quickly as you did. It's…
  • Agreed. I'd even go as high as tree-fiddy, just so the Loch Ness Monster could get himself a snack. :biggrin: Seriously, I would willingly, out of my own pocket, pay 350 zen for this, tops. 475z = costumes, and this is slightly less customizable than that. Costume pieces can be mixed, matched, recolored, etc. These are...…
  • Pay no mind to JSills. He's the head cheerleader here, of COURSE he's going to try to use the peer-pressure and psychological tricks that all the cheerleaders use to make you feel bad about your opinions. Cheerleaders don't WANT you thinking about things like the ones you're thinking of.
  • No you couldn't. I tried with a not-level 40 character (and without a vehicle), and I didn't get to the 2nd ring before the race said "Failed". The "race" is just a conspiracy/spin-campaign. It's like the moon landing. Anybody who says they participated in a 'race' is just part of the government conspiracy. :cool: :biggrin:
  • I'd just be happy with the game launching. All I get is a big gray window instead of the launcher, with "Champions Online" at the top, indicating that it is supposed to be the launcher. No amount of waiting fixes it, I replaced my .exe file with that of a friend (who has a working copy of the game), and i've got nowhere.…
  • ... Really? Wow. Not only are you wearing rose-colored glasses, but.... They're significantly opaque. You =really= missed 'reading comprehension' or something, at least when it came to the above mail. Please, don't try so hard to "help" Cryptic World look like they're doing the right thing in this case. :rolleyes:
  • Hey look! It's like Steam & Origin, only with WAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY less games, and even less use than Origin (which is saying something). I likey Steam, but this isn't even close to that. Nothing to see here, move along... :rolleyes: Besides, as I think somebody else…
  • ^^^ This, for instance, paints you as a delusional paranoid. I'm sure you are not that, and probably a generally nice person. But, like, you sound like you're in a movie-script, and not a very good one.
  • If -this- (the alert argument) is what you take "seriously", I've got to impartially agree with the people who say that you shouldn't be in charge of a project like this. You seem to be a bit too... "precision-oriented" for the demands of a high-pressure situation where things change rapidly. But I'm only basing this on…
  • Sorry, couldn't resist a snarky edit. I'mma go stand in the time-out corner now. :redface:
  • Chatbans: Still 'Working As Intended', I see... :rolleyes: Broken game is broken, because VEHICLES OMG SO IMPORTANT!!!! Enjoy the silence, everybody. :frown:
  • Not to mention the fact that longstanding bugs aren't getting fixed, nor are the past promises (#TelepathyNow) being fulfilled... Instead we get this "homage" to Spartacus/Star Wars Pod Racing. Distraction with shiny objects is still just distraction. Agreed. At least if I go gambling in a casino, I get a rough idea of…
  • ^^^This.^^^ I've quit reading his posts because the blind optimism contained therein simply blows my mind. I just wish I could figure out how to "ignore" specific posters like we could in Ye Olden Forums. :rolleyes:
  • I was a big fan of Flying + RADSphere. And Acro/Ath + RADSphere = HAPPY FUN SUPER BOUNCY BALL! ^_^
  • It's bugged in a few ways, and based on the last "Ask Cryptic" the chances of the bugs getting fixed is aboutt 0%.
  • And "soon(tm)" they'll get bored with vehicles, like they did with Crafted Travel Powers & all of the things you mentioned above. At that point, expect a new "shiny" that they devote their heart & soul & mind to ... for all of six months until the next wave of dev-ennui hits. This game is a bad boyfriend, but it keeps…
  • There are a lot of things that have "been said" in these parts. You get used to it eventually. :rolleyes:
  • ~applause~ Here is the best summary of the "fusion" (I steadfastly refuse to call it "crafting" since it's not what "crafting" usually is) system that I've read so far. I'm one of those people who actually -likes- crafting things, and looking for crafting materials when I'm bored with nothing else to do, etc., and I don't…
  • This thread seems to be getting derailed by three people. Can y'all just take it to private-message world? Or, barring that, remember what Kenny Rogers once said: "Know when to walk away, and know when to run". (and by that, I mean "walk away from pointless arguments", not "walk away from board/game".) :rolleyes:
  • This, right here. Man, does this forum EVER need some "like" buttons. :biggrin:
  • Maybe we need some "in-game stuff" to talk about first? We could talk about PVP builds.. Er, nope. Or maybe the power-set rebalancing...er.. Nevermind. I'll just quit while i'm.. wherever I am.:biggrin:
  • You forgot to shake your pompoms in your traditional role as Lead Cheerleader. Just thought you might like to be reminded that it's ALL ABOUT THE POMPOMS. Shake those things, and distract us from your dance moves. :rolleyes: Here, I'll even give you a constructive response to your reverse-trolling style: Microsoft and…
  • And =this= is why I'm not getting my hopes too high over this. It will, if past history is any indicator, be so buggy that it's unplayable, or will not have a reward appropriate to the mission difficulty, or it will be "limited time only" content. A game so proud of creating 2-week "events" and calling them "new content"…
  • Doublequoted for epic-truth and massive win.:biggrin: (Sorry if this is a violation of some kind of forum etiquette, but this sums up pretty much how I feel about CO: I'm telling them how I want them to change, and they're still going out with their guy-friends drinking every night & coming home stinking of cheap perfume.…
  • He does that alot. Just try not to get dragged into the futility of fighting with somebody who acts like he sees nothing wrong. In reality, it's more like "well, it's not a problem for ME, so it can't be a problem for anybody." That's how a lot of his arguments seem to read lately. Basically, the impression I've gotten is,…
  • You've noticed that too? I thought maybe it was just the way I was reading his posts..
  • ^^^ This is what I think of when I see that Cryptic is working on NWO. I'm just waiting for Eric Bischoff to show up in the forums and act sleazy.
  • I suppose you don't mind that products are getting smaller while prices stay the same? Like, I remember buying X oz. of soda for Y dollars. Now I get X-4 oz for Y+1 dollars. Oops. I guess I should just stfu, according to your logic, and just be glad I am getting anything at all. Please sir, may I have some more gruel? You…
  • Surely you can't feel THAT old..... And yes, I just called you Shirley. :cool:
  • And, given the track record around here, if they MANAGED to scrape up the money to hire the people, it would go live with bugs in it that the Playtesters already reported to the dev team. Furthermore, those bugs would persist for about a year and a half, during which time a number of bugs =beneficial to the player's…
  • Well, I think this thread has served its purpose.... Can we get a lock on this, or... y'know... Just forget it was ever even mentioned to begin with? It was a pretty bad idea, and this is coming from someone who admits that "freeforms are complicated". That, however, doesn't mean they need to be taken out of the game.…
  • Same as with most things around here... They stuck with it for a little while, and then.... Abandonware. :frown:
