  2. I had planned to do this as a separate post, but it fits in nicely here, so... I feel your pain, @Nightwatch So, I’m recruiting for an MSR the other night, and I have this exchange via tell with someone, who shall remain anonymous: OK, so I was a bit of a jerk in my reply, but I’m also going to defend that here in a bit. Normally, I don’t reply to tells at all when recruiting for an MSR, but I had this short lived fantasy that maybe I was helping people understand the game better to respond with “broadcast in zone when you get here.” I get A LOT of tells for t

  3. I haven't posted any of my designs before. This one belongs to my namesake and first fifty on Homecoming, Driven Snow. She's got depressingly mild ice powers bolstered by a technological suit to bring them up to par. Spent a long while shelved, but I felt like revamping her look. The bubble is intended to bring to mind that kind of "snow globe" aesthetic, but unfortunately I can't keep any appropriately icey auras from spilling out of it, so bare glass will have to do.

  4. I appeared in the video for the Sleigh Belles Base (https://youtu.be/6hdB4E8e5Ro) and it was suggested I post Jaegerbaum here. He's part of a Christmas themed team. They're mostly elves, and the idea was that Jaegerbaum was an elf that was turned into a Tin Soldier after an industrial accident. I am fairly proud of him. Enjoy.

  5. Two points on that synopsis: 1. We have a much smaller player base than live, hence IOs and incarnates were goosed so you're not waiting months for a Luck Charm. 2. We have a lot of vets from live, like myself, who spent a lot of time leveling up our characters and tricking them out. We really didn't want to spend all that time we did in live doing it all over again. Tedium isn't difficulty. Other games figured out over the years that you need to throw mechanics and expanded content at the player to keep their mind engaged. Real challenge would require more than

  7. To clarify on my statement, as it's being quoted to the wrong effect here. New methodology of increasing the difficulty are already built and in testing now, and in more engaging ways than just making numbers bigger. As always, we're watching the feedback and are always looking for opportunities to improve existing content. When we approach adjustments, it will be with intent and in ways beyond purely stats. Various elements have already proven that simply having bigger numbers alone does not engaging challenges make. (Keep in mind challenge is not strictly

  9. You know, I have been playing Minecraft lately with the 1.17 update and started from scratch on a new server. I was actually surprised how difficult the game is when you're starting out with unenchanted iron armor. I died 5 times to creepers falling on my head, something I had grown used to ignoring as barely a nuisance. Exploring a big ravine was actually stressful and difficult. I started to wonder if the new terrain generation that creates much larger caves had caused a difficulty spike. Then I got a full set of Diamond (not even Netherite) armor with Protection IV, and went bac

  12. I'm happy to say that with the next batch of new content, we're aiming to do just this using some new methods of dynamic enemy definitions and power assignment. The new content should be able to be played sub-50 (under enhanced), 50+0 (SOs), or 50+ (IO incarnates) and will change to accommodate and challenge the players depending on their preference for the game. This should enable all player types to enjoy it how they prefer, be it leveling an alt, feeling powerful on their built character, or facing an intense challenge. Reading a lot of what's being said I think people will be ha

  14. I grew up watching Adam West's "Bright Knight" campy version of Batman, and among my favorite goofball characters was Vincent Price's Egghead. If you've never seen him, he's obsessive compulsive about eggs: costume, gems and plunder, even speech. Everything had to be about eggs. Price chewed the scenery with him, a real ham with the eggs, and he loved every minute of it, apparently. I wanted to make a homage to him, and I began thinking: what would drive a criminal to obsess about eggs of all things? A suffered trauma, just like so many others of Batman's rogues gallery.

  15. So, I was playing my level 40 SR/MA tanker earlier this evening, running through a seemingly endless story arc centered around Lord Nemesis and those goofy bazooka-sniper guys. She's got a mix of mostly IOs, with a scattering of SOs and a couple of incomplete IO sets. A work in progress, like most of my guys. I was having a pretty good time, slowly but surely closing in on level 41, but some of the missions were getting a little too rinse and repeat-y so I started just running past the bazooka guys (some Council guys, too) whenever convenient to get to the objectives. Pretty easy to do that wi

  17. The difficulty of acquiring IOs was entirely due to the abhorrent state of the economy, not a deliberately set balance point. By the time the Invention system was released, players had been stockpiling inf* for years, across multiple characters, simply because they had nothing to do with their wealth. This was what drove IO prices to nigh unreachable levels, creating the perceived progression limitation. The economy was broken, and something being broken is never a balancing factor. Yes, the HC team has made some IO sets more readily available than they would otherwise be, but p

  18. It took a lot of reading to boil down your goal. You want to remove the option to play the way i play okay. Set up your own server and recruit people who play that 801 or 805 AE arc and peeps that run Reichsman fights at +4 stop trying to change the game i have played since CoV came out into something you want. At least on the servers i play on. I enjoy Rechsman TFs at +0. With fully i/o characters. Does this make me a crappy player who wants easy mode? Oh wait i dont give a crap what anyone thinks about how i play

I found out about the game 2020 i was mind blown and confused why it shut down. When i first started this game i wanted to make a villain soon i would switch this to hero. I did not know healer role was hard to solo but i learned my lesson soon after. I'm lvl 38 healer and this game is not hard for me like it used to be.

  22. Yes, I know there are probably quite a few others out there who have at least one of every AT up to level 50. But this is something I never managed to achieve on live, and decided I wanted to do when HC became available. So I just wanted to give thanks to the devs (of course). Thanks to those on Indomitable who teamed with me and helped me with all that leveling. And also thanks to the AT forums who helped out with build advice -- even when I didn't take it 🙂 Anyway, for the curious, in approximate order of hitting 50...

  24. So after a few months away from the game I have been playing again and a discussion elsewhere prompted me to try a Water/Dark blaster. Of course the name Darkwater was taken. But that may have been fortuitous as casting about for something to represent Water and Darkness landed me on The Depths: First two images show the initial go at it and the third a somewhat more satisfying look. I am still not completely satisfied so revision is likely.

  25. The Original LRSF featured Statesman and Sister Psyche in the final showdown with the Freedom Phalanx and Malaise in the 2nd to last mission with his team. It was quite an experience and there seems to be a fair bit of people who never got the chance to do it. Re-adding this into Oroborus would give people the option to experience this final showdown with all of the Freedom Phalanx again while preserving the current one that exists in the timeline. This would be similar to how the old Sister Psyche is available in the 25-29 category for heroes. Pros - Additional bit of

  28. I don't usually agree with Snarky, but when I do it's because he's right. If you all want to play HARD MODE then ask the devs to do something to give you all a HARD MODE. Me, and a lot of other folks, just want to have a beer and sail through some easy content while chatting with our friends on Discord. Enjoy your HARD MODE. But please, stop trying to convince the devs to FORCE the rest of us to also play on HARD MODE. Us scrubs playing the game on super-easy baby wipe mode DOES NOT ruin the game for you. It literally does not affect you at all. Please stop trying to fo

  31. 1. The stories red side are much better written. I mean, they're not prize winning, but compared to blue side? Night and day difference in quality. 2. You aren't routinely sent to zones A, B, C, then back to B, then back to A during a red side story arc or SF. 3. The mobs are more difficult, so it's more of a challenge than blue side. 4. There's no Atlas Park. 5. The red side zones like St. Martial and Grandville are unique, and not yet another drab cityscape like Skyway City or blasted cityscape like Boomtown. 6. Because red side has a substantially lower population

  37. Uhh… Entangling Arrow does a healthy dose of -res. It’s no longer a skippable power, IMO. Also, Captain Powerhouse tried letting Tankers choose between tier one and tier two secondary powers a couple of years ago, and it blew up spectacularly. Not going to happen, sadly.

His rage was made manifest through his ressurection and he proceeded to slaughter his would-be 'allies'

  41. I am more irritated than entertained. I lump you firmly in the category of people that post in LFG looking for a team to join a Reichsman TF and then crank it to +4 after everyone joins. Maybe I am wrong, but I sense a certain predisposition towards one side of "should we change this?" in your writing. That you firmly have declined to own as your goal. You are entertaining the discussion. I suppose I am involved. I do not feel entertained. To me the divide is as wide as the ability to do this thing. How would a volunteer staff who are already working projects to the b

  42. The Paladin itself does not grant the badge following the reversion to the original event. In order to get the badge, you have to stop it from being built. There will be a message in the Hero Events tab that states "Unusual Clockwork activity detected in King's Row" when construction starts. Find the construction site at one of three locations along the south and east side and fight off the waves of Clockwork for about 10 minutes without allowing the construction to reach full health. After the 10 minutes, finish off the construction for the badge.

  43. dusts off thread Hello, forums. As you may have noticed, there was not maintenance on Tuesday. It will instead occur tomorrow, Thursday, at the usual time. If you find yourself unable to log into the game at that time, please do not be alarmed. If my telling you not to be alarmed does not resolve your alarmed feelings, try rereading this post until alarmed feelings subside. Thanks! (next weekend is not a holiday weekend in the US, so I presume we will return to the normal schedule then, in case any of you were wondering)

  45. I thumbed up a post that detailed whys but really it comes down to Redside has more competent people. Ae babies do not goto redside. People that cant figure out basic things like zoning and null the gull cant goto redaide. They can handle interesting strike forces like Tarikoss, Silver Mantis and Renault. While the lead up to the last missions in those three are generic those last missions offer something a bit unique in terms of map and how to approach the big bad. That levaiathan room is something else. Anyways. The strong survive. The weak hide in ae. Its pretty simple.
