  • Did You Know: Scott was also an instrumental part of the Fallout franchise of video games? He was at Interplay at the time and I think one of his major contributions was the creation of the canine companion, Dogmeat, who (or his descendants) have been in almost every game since the original. The last time I think I spoke…
  • That's a great location for Thundrax, better than what I said about the park, thanks for bringing that up. And perhaps instead of a person, just his symbol, a red thunderbolt against the white snow background. Edit - just removing my suggestion for a memorial, Sapphie's right to point out that's not what Scott would've…
  • I, too, support a monument in his honor in Champions Online, perhaps a statue in the park, to digitally represent what he has always been in real life: Thundrax, a stalwart fixture of the Champions setting/game/franchise. Edit - thanks to Sapphie for pointing out that Scott personally wouldn't have wanted a memorial…
  • Thanks everyone for the event, from Spectre to the Devs to the Contestants. I too would like to see the pictures of all the winners. Lots of funny concepts.
  • Thanks to both the CC organisers and the dev team for coordinating this, very exciting.
  • Congratulations, guys! I'll probably congratulate you again during the Defenders of the Galaxy costume contest XD
  • I really enjoyed the leveling challenge and remembered why I play CO in the 1st place. Built a Noir-themed character, tweaked his costume between leveling, did some content I hadn't touched for years...and found some missions I actually never did before (I was so surprised by this, I'm 4 pages into my character select…
  • Hi Julia, hi team, great work. Love the glow option for the Golden Age emblems, that's so good, will toy with those. I especially love details like memory optimisation on the tails, as I can appreciate that's usually done via hard work or very clever engineering or usually both tbh. Also really like like increasing number…
  • Thanks for this effect, I found it really fun to check out the various Zones with the filter on. It was a totally different atmosphere. I did the Daily Foxbat Hunt mission and it was really gritty, pulpy. The other place I really enjoyed the effect was in the deep jungles of Monster Island, it felt like an old serial. Very…
  • Thanks Kaizerin, really digging that mask.
  • Thanks, all, for the costume contest. They seem to get better and better. Really like the idea of something to do while the judges meet and compare their scorecards. The free-for-all brawl was really hilarious for me, I hope others enjoyed it too, even if they didn't normally PvP, because watching the rest of us go berserk…
  • Yeah, server maintenance just started. Thanks for this minor extension, it really is an ideal compromise. Some players, due to their work schedules, had missed some days because there were a few similar maintenance times. Extending it just half-a-week looks really good. Also looking forward to Halloween, but am totally…
  • In the spirit of being helpful, here's the saved stream: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/312649053 We've been using it to look at the winners (obviously at the end). I know the winners aren't zoomed in on, etc., but keep in mind Kaiserin was busy announcing winners, handing out the prizes, and so on. And you know these guys…
  • Great work, all. Excellent entries from everyone, efficient judging from the Dev team. 4 Zones full of entries and you managed the process to fit in just 2 hours. Talking with other players previously, I realised it wasn't just the length of an event per se, but the anxiety of waiting (during that time). You really…
  • Thanks for taking everyone's feedback into consideration and taking your time with this. You're probably already thinking about this, but since many Gold players migrate between games and come back to CO, there are lapsed customers that will be affected by your ultimate decision EVEN THOUGH they are not active in-game or…
  • Thanks for making good on the deal.
  • Thanks for this sale. Just a heads-up, players noticed the sale ended already despite the advertised date in the post, just passing on word in the spirit of being helpful.
  • ^ Selfie with Overlord N =) I remember when I hosted a CC to give away the Lord Gar Dev action figures, where then-CO GM Trailturtle helped and also advertised in News and in the Launcher, etc., there were 56 contestants and it took 1 hour. This was after I practiced, watching other hosts' CCs just to see how fast I could…
  • Cool, thx, this just leaves the most important question: So which is the dev with all these sweet moves you mocapped for the new animations? They're really, really good.
  • Ya that's really cool, is the emote account-wide (like the awesome dance from the anniversary) please? And is obtaining it limited to this Blood Moon period?
  • Hi all, is the rickroll dance emote unlocked account-wide please? Edit - ok, found the answer, from Kaizerin's post at https://www.arcgames.com/en/forums/championsonline#/discussion/1209393/release-notes-9-7-2017 Added Perks for completing Sapphire's Concert open mission. The 25 and 50 count ones reward account wide dance…
  • New anniversary loading screen is awesome. Thx guys, great work. Omg I was just rewatching Alien: Covenant the other night. Xenogrond would be so OP.
  • I forgot to agree with Bluhman earlier: Yeah, really digging the quality of these, well done. These have a lot of heart and personality, thanks. I might make my own interpretation of a rad-to-the-max lizard, I think that'd be fun, like what you made here:
  • I, too, like that new dragonhead and I'm sure many players will, too. Good job, guys. But I wish to comment on this: This issue has had very negative feedback in Zone and Contests-Central Chat. That shouldn't be surprising and I reckon you already anticipate that backlash, but then I'm curious why your team would think…
  • Thanks for asking. The number 1 resource is the CO Lore Primer in case you hadn't seen it yet: http://championsonlineroleplayers.shivtr.com/forum_threads/714009 --- Then, now that I own a bunch of Champions RPG books, the single-most interesting, useful, and the one I re-read the most, is Champions Villains Volume 1.…

  • Thanks for asking our opinions. Here's just mine. The 1st resource is free. It's Thundrax's CO Lore Primer: http://championsonlineroleplayers.shivtr.com/forum_threads/714009 (That website as a whole is very useful, I usually ask my lore questions there.) --- I now own a few digital books. The single most useful book is…
  • On that note, I'm totally into Warhammer, and apparently so are the Devs, if you've noticed the names of the characters in the Qliphothic Warzone. I also used those miniatures you mentioned and "kit-bashed" this: Hopefully the link works because I think there's some problem with using tags here all of a sudden. Direct link…
  • And the Nightmare Invasion comes to an end. A friendly bump because we have returning players who weren't here for this event last year and hadn't seen this comic either. The adventure continues in the Qliphothic Warzone, accessible through a tear between worlds at the UNTIL Headquarters.
  • It's ok, this is a MMORPG. You can roleplay they're vegetarian hot dogs, made from soy. Like tofurkey.
  • Aw, sweet! Optimization, y'all! Great stuff. Also, hot dog vendors. We love those NPCs.
  • Guys, it's a fair point, but that's also a problem with MY wording, not with those players. I apologise for that, and ask that you assign whatever blame you want to me and not to the player affected. I got my little toy swords last year, so I'm just speaking for those that didn't and may be embarrassed to ask, precisely…
  • Great work, thanks Kaizerin. Just in case you missed the discussion in the previous Foxbatcon thread, please make the joke Therakiel Blade? readily available to players that missed it last year because it was up for only 1 day, like it was last year. Please don't make people jump through hoops like having to do the…
  • Hi Kaizerin. Thanks for your hard work. But please make this available like it was last year for players who missed out. We have friends who are returning to the game, renewing their memberships, who weren't here last year. Or they work in retail or restaurants and can't make it for a pretty long team piece of content, on…
  • Just want to say I look forward when this event returns. Good stuff.
  • BUG: Gold Bonus (Costume/Emotes/Etc.) Vendor showing March 2016 costume piece, the Mardi Gras Mask, instead of March 2017 costume piece or emote! Letting you know in advance before people rage! Seriously you know how people get about their costume pieces. Probably wrong thing got tagged, pls fix :D UPDATE - ok totally see…
  • WE WON! Thanks to everyone who joined in. WE ALL WON!
  • Was just checking in on my investment: 51 hours to go and less than $400. I myself just contributed $30, which IMHO was the best bang for the buck, so that I can get the Encyclopedia of Golden Age Heroes. My reasoning is that, based on my experiences with the Villains Volumes for Champions, it's these character profiles…
  • If I had to pick, I'd say it's closer to Iron Man 1 than Thor 1 and Cap 1. It's a tough call, and that may be due to both Iron Man and Dr. Strange starting as wealthy, arrogant, bearded guys from Manhattan that fall from grace in the Middle/Far East to learn how to make/use new gadgets/ancient relics, thus becoming…
  • :) Perseus, thx for the heads up bro. I've got some friends that specialise in short characters, I'll pass word on.
  • I forgot to say thanks for the clarification. I just needed to plan ahead for farming. So far it's working out alright. EDIT - the reason why it's working alright, even though I 100% understand the concerns of my fellow players here, is that even though the cost is high, the opportunities to earn Turak Coins are also…
  • Hi Kaizerin, this is an important question, not a critique. Please clarify: Is the Throne of Takofanes, in both Vehicle and TP form, meant to be Bind-On-Pickup please? I can understand the logic for your decision, without necessarily endorsing it (because I would much rather prefer Bind-To-Account instead as a player), but…
  • These are actual Mission-related bugs that confuse players, as they're mentioned in Zone chat. ----- BUG: Destroid Destruction (2) and Annihilator Bots bugged WHERE IT HAPPENS: In Terminus Base, any instance of Annihilator Bots can have this issue WHAT HAPPENS: Annihilator Bots sometimes lack the "Allied Defense" buff that…
  • Thanks for confirming that. I noticed the 15,000 HP vs. 90,000+ HP versions as the criteria between getting credit vs. not getting credit for the mission respectively. I didn't realise it was related to that buff the Destroids have. Good to see we weren't a.) alone or b.) crazy to have seen that. Seems like this is a known…
