  • I managed to take a couple pictures of the display at the reception following the service, which I'll share below. One thing of note that happened that I did manage to connect with another of Scott's gaming friends, Steve Sloane-- credited in Champions of the North with the creation of Necrull, and part of the original…
  • Today is the day of Scott's funeral service. I can't promise anything of note related to this, but I wanted to at least let you know that I will be attending with the aim of representing those in the CO community who cannot be there to pay their final respects-- as much as it is for me, who had the privilege of getting the…
  • Scott's online obituary page was launched today, if people are inclined to leave messages of condolence. https://www.myalternatives.ca/abbotsford/obituaries/2022-bennie-robert-scott?fbclid=IwAR1OvJ7ZsOhtjz_bUkUq3vc9YwFylm0cE7jbk2rh91nJ6aaK7HyUgSBxbjg
  • Updated the previous post because he's gone. I saw the news just after getting off an already stressful work shift so... processing. It's gonna be tough. He won't see this, but all I want to say for now is thank you for everything.
  • I had to erase the post, because... well. https://twitter.com/ChampionsFFA/status/1508699270714589187
  • I figured out the issue. The auras weren't activating because of the Giant Growth advantage on Enrage, I think. If my Enrage power is on, the aura won't work even if equipped. I was pretty sure that this wasn't the case on PTS, but given that the megas persist through combat, it makes the advantage sort of obsolete? To…
  • Uh, were the magnifier auras and UI option meant to be pushed live as well? Because someone let me know they're now available on the Q store, I went and bought them, and the mega-magnifiers don't even work.
  • One thing I've noticed while testing the Magnifiers on PTS is that the ;battleplanlisten emotes are no longer persistent. They're nice poses to use while giant but they complete their one animation cycle (and the ones that don't use the pointing are very short) and revert to idle. It's been a while since I've hopped on to…
  • Chiming in a sec because I was JUST alerted to this by my buddy and it falls within my interests~ I feel like Large > Huge > Enormous> etc. rolls of the tongue better in that order. Also, for the icon colors, should be all "warm" colors for the growth (and "cool" colors for shrinking, if those ever get added). Otherwise, I…
  • I've got the positive news that Thundrax is once again back home-- and fingers crossed that this is the one for sure!
  • As far as I know he's back in the same hospital he was originally (though I assume not in the exact same ward/room as he was before). If I can get details I can only assume getting those messages going again is an option, but the hope is that his stay won't be as dreadfully long as his previous. That said-- and I had…
  • Late with this one, sorry! Apparently we're not 100% out of the woods yet. I just caught an update from his sister on April 11th that 'Drax had a fall at home and ended up back in the hospital. So keep those fingers crossed and thoughts positive, please!
  • It's happened, guys! Wanted to post the news officially that Thundrax is finally out of hospital and, per his update on FB about an hour or so ago, "adjusting to life at home". While I'm hoping he'll be able to post himself soon, I want to thank everyone again on his behalf for all the well-wishes and positive thoughts…
  • (Yes, I know what day it is today, but this is 100% serious.) New update, and one that's probably important to those of you in the community that have been sending him well-wishes. Thundrax has been moved from ARH to another local area hospital as of yesterday. However, don't consider this a bad thing: his sister has been…
  • (So, I already had all of this posted once and I tried to edit it... I think the forum ate it. Part of the reason why I don't really follow the main boards as much as I should-- my own start to the year asides.) Since you guys have all been patiently waiting for information on our Mighty Thundrax... He's still in the…
  • I love this pic, AC!
  • Wanted to share this message from his sister posted yesterday on FB: To all of Scott’s friends. He’s received 60ish emails and he is very happy and humbled by all the attention he is getting. They think he’s a minor celeb in the hopsital. Still no word on how long he will be there. It’s been only one week since his surgery…
  • Just wanted to make sure you or whoever is in charge of the FB page knows, the patient email service that's been linked does require all the information bulgarex listed in order for messages to be delivered to their recipient (as they are printed out and delivered physically, Scott does not have access to any electronic…
  • Thank you for passing this on officially, milord. I'd like to add that his sister is also working to at least get him a tablet so he isn't completely cut off, but I imagine with COVID restrictions in place it might take a bit.
  • This is one CC I'd really like to go to but they're always starting when I have to be at work. That said, more of this, please.
  • Additional information: This was on the Live server. I had purchased a Fun Nullifier from the vendor in Club Caprice shortly before doing this test. The Draysha Gas Pistol was in someone else's storage for a while but traded to me and bound to my character shortly before the test as well. (In case there's any discrepancy…
  • We had a successful Support Brigade Day! If you missed out, but are still interested in generating a Brigade duplicate for yourself, we'd be happy to have you in the Multi-Man collective!
  • Ultimately, I'm hoping that this years Brigade Day was the first step in getting some momentum going for the concept again: indeed, we did have a couple new dupes join us while we were going on Wednesday! I can't speak for them but I know I'm horribly lazy at grinding the XP, so some team-ups in the near future would be…
  • Had a bit of a short go at it but we had a successful Support Brigade Day! Even had a couple of fans tag along.
  • I'm not! #brigadeisbetter
  • This is indeed still happening tomorrow! I'll probably start hanging around a little earlier than the planned start time of whatever is going to happen :D Hope to see the Brigade friends and fans there! (Who needs Foxbat?)
  • Whenever you're able to, post and I'll try to keep an eye out for it!
  • Awesome! I'll see if I can catch you online so I can grab you for the collective :D EDIT: And already done!
  • THAT TITLE LOGO TRANSITION is one of my favorites in any game, even after all these years. I'd probably say there isn't so much a right or wrong answer to this. Even if there were some sort of subliminal message being expressed, it's under the superficial pretense of Leblanc riding the coattails of Yuna's celebrity status…
  • For reference, this is the wall we're trying to overcome.
  • As an RPer whose main character is a size shifter in concept, I'm indifferent. Yes, I like the visual aspect of seeing Atomac as a giant, but even when all the tools were in place to maximize the effect I never got it to work right. And I'm hardpressed to say I actually play the game where I'd notice a difference for…
  • Need clarification on something. Is it imperative to have Arc installed in order to get LTS? Because I don't use any third-party launcher to run the game-- I just open it from my desktop/taskbar. And since it's being touted as a DLC option, there's no such thing in the game's Steam listing either.
  • Yeah, the way the whole thing was worded is rather unfortunate, but a comment I read elsewhere struck me. Keep in mind that we already knew the feature of getting a new character slot for level-capping a character was going away with the introduction of the Premium Pack and related business model changes. Even though the…
  • Good to hear, but just to confirm this still means that subs are untouched until said launch?
  • The only thing that really needs to be done to make this upcoming shift at least a little more palatable is to make at LEAST 1 or 2 of the six premium pack slots as Freeform ones, instead of forcing new players to pay that extra premium of $50 to even try out what's supposed to be the main draw of the game. In terms of…
  • One suggestion I would make is, if you want to have more of a guarantee your subscription won't lapse past the 7th (due to credit card) and it's a feasible option? Switch your payment method to Paypal, and link your bank account to your Paypal account.
  • In yet another case of Eastern company not understanding the Western market, PWE really needed to look at the whole picture before deciding this for Champions. New players won't be able to enjoy the main draw of the game unless they fork over a premium (on top of the premium pack, might I add!) and the long term supporters…
  • Some possible changes to the labelled version: *One character, to right of the Duskfeather trio, doesn't have one. *One character near Taranis at left, and another by Archtech at right, are both named "Bruiss".
  • If there's anything I can think of, it's perhaps that Sludd should be a little more opaque. He feels a little too liquid in places, almost like green Kool-Aid rather than sludgey. Other than that, it's phenomenal.
  • I just got this following today's Windows 10 update as well. Game seems to run fine for me if I ignore it and run on regular settings, so I'll probably click "don't remind me" and forget about it for a month. Slightly annoying overall, though, Win10.
  • Just for clarification, are the old recogs getting rolled into UNTIL or UNITY credits? Because the former sounds like it would make a lot more sense to me.
  • It's all PayPal. there's a link in the OP as to where to pay. Just have each of your friends use that link for their own characters.
  • I pitched in for three more. Atomac | http://fav.me/d5zkw57 Travel: Flight, super jump Pose: You drew him small last time, so this one he's got to be big. Every superhero ensemble pic has to have a big one. :wink: Sludd | http://fav.me/d6k5nl5 Travel: Tunneling... and ooze tunneling Pose: Definitely oozing from a manhole…
  • I'll try to catch you in game or otherwise ASAP, Smacks. Just saw you needed to speak with me. By the way, since people are going for multiples, I figure I'd speak up and say I want to call for Atomac and Sludd in there, too, but that will need to wait until I get paid on Friday. Cool?
  • epelesker Character: Wheelman -- http://robenix.deviantart.com/art/Reference-Wheelman-2014-462751127 Travel powers: Hyper Ball, Acrobatics Perhaps a running or jumping pose that oh-so-slightly accentuates his rubbery flexibility?
  • It's the Arcane Tattoo costume set, from one of the old lockboxes. It has Ghost material which gives that effect.
  • Yes! Good to see that BP's looking a little more like he should now!
