City of Villains

Recommended Posts

newer costumes, less running between missions (god I hate having to run through five zones just to get to the missions...) more flexibility about missions, ragdoll physics, salvage... the list goes on.

 

<---- COH player, currently downloading the COV beta 29.9 kbps (it's capped) got 5 hrs to go... I'll dig up some of the new stuff now that the NDA is removed.

 

Oh and because so many people left COH for bigger and better things... and because the name databases are going to be linked between the games for the pvp crossover fights here's the brand spakning new name policy (folks have been asking for this forever):

I should also point out that the devs do take the online monkiers of the "JLA" of this comic book world... there have been instances of Statesman (Jack Emmert, the ultimate maker of this game) jumping in the game and helping people do Task Forces.

When I got the email about the name registration I was like "Crap!" and reactivated my account so I didn't lose some of my better names.

well it's there because about 1 million people over the course of its exsistance have at one time or another had an account. each account can have about 88 names on it... the current player base is about 1/10th of that so they needed to free up names... and Oerwende it's the acct not the actual character... and if anyone was over 35 you were in the clear with them.

Wow what happend to their user base ? Or was WoW close :wub:

I have to agree with Volourn.  Bioware is pretty much dead now.  Deals like this kills development studios.

Seems like its a high risk of characters having to choose names like "Hrrfufrhurr" or "superman_18927"

with Issue 5 the defenses of tankers were nerfed... along with some other thing. People didn't like it because it changed their character so the left, to EQ2 WoW and even :shiver: galaxies.

 

Oh and we can't use TMed names... like superman, batman, barbie, Phoenix, or iceman.

Never played it, I'm pretty much over MMPORGs now (hopefully).

The email I got said it was the character. From the email: "If your game account is inactive for over 90 days and you reactivate your account you will need to log back in to any characters affected by this policy to move them out of unreserved name status."

 

I had like 14 characters or so, but only 2 or 3 I really cared about their names. Black Prophet was the main one. With City of Villains coming, that name would be gone real fast. And I was never so hardcore into it that I got a character over level 13. I'd get to level 11 or so, and thats about where it took around 2-3 days of playing to gain a level when it first came out, so I would start a new character, get him to level 11, start a new one, etc. Now its a lot easier to gain a level once you get around that level. You can gain one around every 3 hours of play or so, which pretty much amounts to getting a good group and doing some missions that are 1 or two levels above you.

 

And for those curious, the character I play most is White Pulsar on Guardian. Level 13 Energy Blaster.

XP is much easier to get because they reduced the amount of debt you got in a instance... so usually your not in permadebt.

Right now, I have a slew of characters on the Pinnacle server. Look for Eldara, Far Thel, Far Latere, or Peith if you're ever online.

Okay, my handle is Eldara, but I haven't been able to play all day. I will sign on later and if you'd like to join up for a group. My toons range from level 6 to 35.

Someone should start an Obsidian supergroup. Decide which server to play on and start new characters. Well, obviously we can't start the group until one of us is level 10, but that doesn't take *too* long
