  • I'm in Montana, land of the "I send my packets via carrier pigeon" and I hate it. The tell sometimes pops up just a tad late, and not enough that I miss the actual hit, but sometimes it's late enough that I miss the check. My main beef with the mechanic is two fold. 1: It's not very conducive to high level play if you have…
  • Can you send tells? They're tied into the same mechanic, zone and tells are supposed to unlock at the same time.
  • S.K. is also where a lot of gold farming in other games comes from. That could be a financial thing.
  • I'd scale it back a bit. Yeah, rent to own sounds good. At least, if you pay as much as I did for my lts, you should get my unlocks. If for no other reason than I'd love to see that sexy lts helmet on more characters. I'm not gonna lie, I got my lts specifically to access that freaking helmet. It's beautiful.
  • You had me at "energy unlock".
  • What they said. BCR + MD is still stupid-powerful. I even use BCR when I'm not using resurgent reiki, because the heal over time is a nice fire and forget. There ain't a hell of a lot of that in game.
  • IDK what that's all about, I've gotten one in my first run a few times. It's random. The problem is, more, that the rampages can be a pain in the **** to get a good team for. More non-token rewards would fix that, imo. Not just costume drops and figs, maybe chances at high-tier mods and the like. If I knew I could maybe…
  • Mod alerts and Sky Carrier. They also drop off of random mods, and IIRC mod hour drops a ton of them. Used to, at least.
  • This community sometimes. We got no content for how long? And we finally get some, including power passes we'd been begging for for literally like 5 years, and still. Y'all are really hard to please, lol. But I feel like the end issue here is "do you agree with the changes Kaiserin's making"? I do, so I'm cool. If you…
  • meanwhile, i came back because i liked what they were doing. "fun" is subjective. imo the game is in the best place its been in years.
  • point: the actual gain there at high end is miniscule because of diminishing returns. my main is str toxic, and she's a chainsaw. the acrual problem here, imo, is passives. ain't really a lot good out there for mixed range dps, last i checked. granted, that was a while ago, since i just got back last night.
  • wait, when did we get a shark? thats awesome.
  • personally, i'd like too see em buffed. But, I do see the purpose of em, even for a knowledgeable player. it forces you to work within a certain framework, and lets you experiment with powers you'd normally NEVER use. Like, does telepathy generally suck? Yeah, but i had a ball getting my mind to 40. It's like a challenge…
  • Yeah, I'm done with em. I'm all about learning the fight, reading stuff, but on my first day of playing it as not just another dpser, because people specifically asked for more heals? A few of the people in this thread decided to b**ch up down left and right in zone about how the healers sucked, because we were having…
  • FYI, if you wanna see *why* this won't work, go over to the institute just to the west of ren center, and stand at the top of the ramps that come up from west side. Watch the cars as they get to the top of the ramp, and you'll see why we'll never get ground vehicles. I think this and wall crawling/running are historically…
  • >is it just me, or are the hideouts still the exact same as six years ago It's more than just you. STO poached our environment guy right after the hideouts launched. We have no more because the guy that made em got transferred the second they noticed that he was as talented as he is. Which is pretty much the life story of…
  • Holy crap, this thread was necroed TWICE.
  • Yeah, that'd be the LOS problems we were going off about a few days ago. That area has it worse for healers, since the tank tends to be smaller and has a huge hit box over it. It doesn't help when there are spots where by all rights you *should* have LOS, but the game doesn't register it for some reason. I'd also love to…
  • Huh. So they DID know I was logging in! Seems to be up now, at least. :smiley:
  • Man, discussing this game on the internet reminds me of this. I just don't like doing it not-here.
  • >A lot more needs to be done, and honestly both Star Trek Online and Neverwinter suffer this problem as well. Neverwinter especially. I wanted to love that game. I really enjoy the combat. But the pricing system is off-putting (a bag is HOW MUCH?) and the whole world feels like a theme park. It's The Witcher 3 syndrome:…
  • Gonna agree with Flow on both, mostly because I can't stand condemn. But tossing around poison to everyone near you? Well if that ain't radiation I don't know what is. :smiley: And thanks dude, it's been a few since I used it. Using supernatural power with epi/defile/infernal blast feels a bit more viable anyway, though.…

  • This game isn't even on the same PLANET as an Asian grinding MMO. Ever try to get one of the crafted travel powers pre-on alert? THAT was an Asian style grind, you needed like 1000 really rare components to make one widget for the travel power. You needed 4 widgets to make the power. You needed entire exponentially large…
  • I never take frag grenade, shotgun's got that spammable utility thing going on that I'm a big fan of. Takes all sorts, I guess. I also never rank SMG because I have a shotgun.
  • You can just spam grav pulse. 99% sure if there is a c/d on incendiary/flamethrower it's negligible, I use it on like 2 of my vehicles and haven't had a problem.
  • Kinda surprised you're not rocking Epidemic. Also, you're gonna probably have energy issues using that much fire with supernatural power. I did similar on Chernobyl, and had to redo myself a bit. Even now, I still gotta be careful popping Fire Snake, because if I get it at the bottom of my energy bar it's a slow down. Does…
  • Wasn't Valiance CoT? Thought they rebranded. Also, add me firmly to the "bring back Matrix Online" list. That game was a horrible buggy mess, and I loved every minute of it. But, yeah, I hear you. I love this game, and you know what I'd do if it went away? Get really bummed for a few days, then probably switch over to…
  • Welcome to the Champions Online Forum! Where the comparisons are made up and the logic doesn't matter! But no, if we're gonna be technical wasn't none of the q store stuff available before? They're reskins of the crafted travel powers, sure, but they're not 1:1 clones. In every case, imo, the old CTP stuff was a lot…
  • It'd make sense. If someone's actively pulling to the point where you gotta threat wipe them, a threat wipe probably isn't gonna help them as much as possibly dying and learning how to block properly. A power that wipes your threat and heals someone else, however, sounds tasty.
  • Yeah, I kinda want skull flight. I don't want it enough to pay 250k q, that's over 10 bucks of real money. No travel power in the game costs that.
  • Man, the silent hills rebrand has about the dumbest name I've ever heard for a video game. That sounds like something a 14 year old would name his doom metal band.
  • God dammit, we're still doing this aren't we? I get that people are excited to have their updated CoX clones and all, but I really hope nobody's honestly expecting any of these to be successful. The better looking one looks like a ps2 game, and even licensed super hero mmos with recognizable characters are barely squeaking…
  • Kinda can't disagree with dude on a few things. I still have no justice gear. It's been years, but the bearings and scales are just too much of a slog and I never manage to catch the damn Lemurian when it's up. Or, if it is, nobody wants to run it. And Sky Carrier? "Sure, I've got 2 hours to kill. I'll run Sky Carrier 3…
  • Can't say I've ever seen an MMO where this kind of behavior is allowed. I don't care if people can carry alerts, I can do that too. Pretty sure 90% of the people reading this can. Using multiple accounts to game the system, and give yourself a double chance of drops, is scummy and wrong. I don't really care how you try to…
  • >Would be great if it scaled well off INT/END and REC Yeah, I kinda feel like it'd make more sense for all of the energy unlocks to treat the associated superstats equally. You stack a bunch of rec? You should be getting huge energy returns, that's why you stack rec. But if it says it works off of int, int should do what…
  • 100% with you on auras getting a range boost. For that matter, some of the heals probably could do with one too. Right now we only have iniquity spam to hit outside the 100 foot mark, and it ain't like a 150 foot healing maintain is gonna ruin game balance. But as for the forms, you just gotta think outside the box. My…
  • It'd really help if our targeting for our team were a bit easier to manage. Even if you tell it not to, I've found myself target swapping from a dpser to the tank a few times while tossing out heals. That's honestly why I never take Absolve on my healers, it's just too much of a risk. IDK though, the idea of being able to…
  • Well, on the upside? Even if we are just shifting the G around the community (which really, we kinda are), at least there are no real G sinks in the game to speak of. The odd healing device on an AT, maybe, but even the tailor isn't a sink if you're a veteran. Might actually explain why farming the stuff is so obnoxious,…
  • That'd hardly be a choice at all. Shotgun covers the arc dps pretty darn well, and minigun is another level of damage entirely from SMG.
  • lol telepathy's been bad ever since the early days, when it was mind-breakingly OP. I know a few people have gotten it to work really well, Vixy here and Ravenforce being a few major ones, but IMO that more showcases the exception that proves the rule: Devs for this game have and always will hate telepathy. Any time…
  • You ever play the Invincible? If so, you might not be saying that. The thing flat out sucks on energy because of how overdrive scales with it's primary super stat. Plus, reliance on rec? For something that eats a ton of energy? Do you want to constantly interrupt your toggles? Because that's how you constantly interrupt…
  • Animal superheroes exist. I'd hazard a guess that lots of the people playing anthro characters in this game aren't playing super heroes, given the crap I've seen in caprice and in mistells. Seems to me that the problem here isn't "anthro parts exist" as much as it is "furries exist", and I'm sorry. A single head in an MMO…
  • My question is: Does this remove those invisible body part glitches we were using for basically forever?
