  • My posts seems to get removed, good job with the censorship! This is ridiculous.
  • I will just call this what it is: predatory, exploitative and manipulative. It's takes advantage of people's FOMO (fear of missing out), it exploits people's desire to create different costumes (and thus collect different costumes) and manipulates people into accepting the IDEA of character specific costumes by starting…
  • Is nobody else seeing this for what it is? It was made 50G so that we think it's not a big deal. It's meant to slowly make us accept the IDEA of character specific unlocks. Next time it will be more maybe 75 or 100 and so on and so forth. Do not think even for a second that this practice is anything but a scheme. I've seen…
  • Seriously, another "exclusive" currency with another "exclusive" store? How many people do you think run this to have access to the store? There is already the Qlipthotic Essence currency that is useless now we get another "upcoming store" ? Gating content even more seems counterproductive to me.
  • Any update on how past event costume pieces will be handled such as the Lance Weapon? I don't really mind it returning under any form (Z store, Q store, GCR etc...) but please add it somewhere.
  • So what you are saying is that there won't be any official response to this and we just sit here in limbo waiting for something that might or might not happen.
  • So there is no real "official" statement on how this will be handled? I really don't want to bring my hopes up to then be crushed. I would reason that it would be a waste of dev time to create something for a limited time and then not have it available through some means (usually grind or zen). Nevertheless, it's not like…
  • I've been away from CO for a while so this might be a dumb question but how are event mission costume rewards treated? For example Dr. Destroyer Bracers that are part of this event (as a mission reward), will they be part of the event store next year or will they go into GCR/Q/Drifter/Collectors/Paperback/ etc. ?
  • Same thing happend to me. I guess I'll have to redo things which kinda sucks. Hope this does not happen again.
  • Since I actually reproduced that build and damage (tnx to spinnytop) I can safely say that this build is without a doubt the max you can achieve gear wise + either perfect timings or running a marco to generate perfect rotations. The issues with that is that unless you are used to playing PA reaching 8.5k even with a macro…
  • I would like to add the Gear requirements to your list. I do not believe there is a set out there that is as gear dependent to run. I still cannot get 8.5k tho -_-
  • I just tried it out again and for the life of me I cannot get it to reach 8.5k. I've seen the parse and I can't guess what's going on. It's literally concussor beam, chest laser and eye beams and they do 8.5k while my build does 7.5k. Considering we are talking about 1k dps difference that's quite huge considering I was…
  • Well I tested that build out and you can't do 8.5kdps with it so unless you actually post the build so I can reproduce the numbers from my tests your claims are impossible to actually do. EDIT: So I just tried the build without LnL and Imbue and I get around 6.5kdps. I will try it with those added but I doubt that will…
  • I made a build on PTS that uses the standard stuff you mentioned and I can get 7.5k dps but not 8.5k. That's a whole 1k dps which I cannot account for and that build needs to use a circle to run 3x toggles. So the 8.5k dps 3x toggles no circle build sounds quite absurd. Even though there are numbers I don't know how those…
  • You can use 3 toggles without circles (I know it's possible) but he claimed 3x toggles without circles and doing 8.5k dps. Now that is something I'm interested in.
  • How exactly are you getting those numbers and are able to maintain 3x toggles without circles? Yeah I don't see it, what is the build/gear/specs that you used?
  • IMO the Blazing Helmet should be part of Side Accessories as well. It's not really a helmet and more in line with what we currently have in the side accessories category.
  • All we would need is a passive that buffes both elemental and physical dmg. That would make ice, toxic, fire work with slashing, piercing and crushing. This passive would also help sets that have powers that do elemental type dmg like incendiary grenade (or is it fiery grenade?) from munitions. Essentialy what holds…
  • The issue with elementalist is that we have energy and elemental damage types. So unless we have a passive that buffs both that will be a problem (well NW buffs all dmg but that's not the point). Similarly do we have fire and HW. There could be some nice synergies but there is no passive that buffs crushing&fire. IMO the…
  • Thing is because of the innate -100% of Incinerate it actually encourages piling up dots from Flash Fire and Fire Snake. With those powers added and some of their adv maintaining stacks (I forgot the names but if I remember correctly I got 2 stacks of clinging flames running with 1 stack from the patch from flash fire and…
  • I got similar numbers to aiqa so the dmg is not bad. Nevertheless, It feels similar to electricity now (maintain dps power + power that applies debuff + power that refreshes debuff). Not necessarily a bad thing but I feel like fire should have a bit more identity. I'm not exactly sure what the difference between fire,…
  • I guess I did not see that. SO how exactly are you adding more value when you are taking out Legion's gear? I'm fairly certain that Legion's and Costumes are basically the only things that truly add any value to the lockboxes. The dumb just got dumber....remove Legion's, split up costumes. What's next? Need 2x Keys to open…
  • I don't think people truly understand the implications of splitting costumes up again. DO NOT SPLIT COSTUMES!!! How will you handle the variation in number of costume pieces per lockbox? Let me elaborate with an example. Say you have costume X that comes with 10 pieces and costume Y that comes with 15 pieces. How do you…
  • So....is that wolf head available for players as well? If not.... I'd get the sidekick if it unlocks it's head piece otherwise....meh don't really care about it.
  • I said "also" scale off END not to be changed to "only" END. We need a form that scales off END since there is currently none.
  • OK seems you want to take the time to figure out where you want PA to go. First things first though, there are some things that need to be adressed considering the scale of the changes: 1. Sniper gloves either need to get a significant boost OR let people sell them back to get the 5k Villain tokens. This is not a debatable…
  • OR, just hear me out here....JUST leave things as is. They clearly have no foresight on what the heck they are doing and they patch/fix/break things as they move along. Those changes to PA are basically trial and error. As I said, currently they due to the changes to Sniper gloves, PB and MG I have lost between 30-35% dmg…
  • There is no way to test that since those powers were changed thus I can't see only the Sniper gloves. Furthermore it depends on the power how much of an impact it has on your build. You can actually do the math to see how much of a change that was. For example for PB it would proc every 0.1s so it was worth it. Now it…
  • So after some testing I found that the drop in dps is between 30-35%. The build I used is affected by the Sniper, PB and MG nerfs. I knew it would be a lot but this is absurd!
  • Not really honestly. I have a melee toon that uses only 1 power for dmg (never even has to use the EB) and I've topped the charts several times on OW cosmics (not even optimized) and I can do content just fine no problem. You only need a lunge if you want to maximize your dps, you can also just use a travel power (maybe if…
  • So you nerf the Sniper gloves further into the ground. Ok, so where do I sell them to get the tokens back since now they are useless overall. Don't tell me there won't be such a thing, it takes weeks to farm one of those! You nerf things, FINE but then give back the tokens so ppl can adjust their builds or get something…
  • Is the rune an Enchantment? Currently Pillar of Poz is bugged and it's healing rune does not count as an enchantment for Soul Beam (basically the 10% bonus does not apply) so Condemn might have the same issue.
  • How long have you been in CO? lol @ this guy c'mon
  • Nice, so all my anniversary experience boosters that I had now are "expired" and gone with this patch. THANK YOU very much for removing item drops from my bank I needed the spots (not!). While we are at it how about we start removing characters next or items. Like how my overflow bag was suddenly empty when I logged in…
  • Selling 1 x Gladiator's Battle Belt send me an offer in game @Nightrod
  • What about Q-Crates? Do they also count as "boxes" ?
  • Maybe it's just me but Hyper Voice seems misplaced in the Might tree. The moment I heard the sound it makes it made me think of a Banshee. There is nothing "Mighty" about the power. I suggest to move it to Darkness, change the damage type to dimensional and call it Soul Scream. This power sounds kinda creepy and would make…
  • Well bird people legs were NEVER a drop it's a veteran reward. Arcane tattoos were a lockbox item so it was available while ppl opened that lockbox. Those items are not drops per say but either exclusive to veteran rewards or lockbox RNG and then the AH/trade. The way I obtained the dragon bracers is simple, I still have…
  • Yes the item exists, maybe not in the legacy boxes but it does. I know because I have it (unbound) for sale. If you are interested send me a message in game @Nightrod
  • Not even close. Balancing numbers is almost trivial. The problem is that we have FF and thus any power combination is possible yet it is impossible to balance for every such combinations especially when you add specializations on top. Some will have extraordinary results combined while individually they seem balanced. In…
  • I guess it boils down to you being naive. I understand what you want to say BUT at this point in time it is a business decision. If people don't play the new content then the development cost was wasted. Adding a slot into gear is a trivial thing compared to actually making real content. Even what we got is a diluted form…
  • First of all it's not a design issue. The issue is that while we got better gear the content requiring that gear never showed up. That is not a design issue that is a business decision. Let me clarify something. Whether you would like to work under me or not is completely irrelevant. Nevertheless, I guarantee you that the…
  • And here you fail to understand the state of CO. If you think this game can be ever balanced they you are out of your mind. I am a developer myself I can tell the state of this game and the amount of effort it would take to balance and unless you have a couple millions to spare to hire a team full time for a couple of…
  • And in the end none of this matters. People are unkillable now without this gear with this gear it won't make them more unkillable lol. At some point, if you can't get killed more gear/stats won't make a difference. The update is good. Balance will never be achieved give it up. That train has left the station 4-5 years ago…
  • Wow you are just a bundle of hate. I find it idiotic that people even bother with power creep in this game. I've seen this game since closed beta and there is no saving it in terms of balance. Also, it's not the gear that makes the difference it's the powers. I have a Quarry toon with blues not even Mercenary gear on it…
  • The gear is perfectly balanced if they keep it BoP. You would have to grind with each toon to get this gear. You can't buy it you have to place the time and effort which is GOOD! This helps with "content" and "nothing to do" issues/complains people have. I think it's a great way of providing something Good but making you…
  • CO needs linear progression not horizontal. That's absurd to even think. What's the point of doing anything if what you get is just different but ultimately the same as the gear you have now. Co has no challenge because it does not get content updates. Simple as that. The only way for CO to live on is on new gear,…
  • I don't think you understand what I'm saying. I'm pointing out that the farming of tokens is completely BS on both sides. SV need to farm low lvls and squishies and Heroes just tag or kite Villains for tokens. Villains need to be able to get tokens because the only way to do so is through kills. Maybe they should just add…
  • Considering that OG is actually BoP vs Vigilante which is BoE that's a huge issue. I don't think their power is too much. We need progression and a reason to do the content. The reason all the lairs we have are dead is because there is no reason to do them. If new content is not worth doing then nobody will. I don't see…
  • BUG: PLASMA CANNON The animation, since the last patch, has been broken. Instead of pointing in a horizontal line forward now it points towards the ground! It's quite annoying. It worked fine yesterday.
