  1. After a dumpster fire of a thread showed up earlier today, I thought now would be a good time to express a little appreciation for specific stuff that the Homecoming Team does that you feel sets them above and beyond the (emphasis here: Volunteer) call of duty! Remember: Let's keep this purely positive. Encourage the Team to do the things you love them for. Any criticisms or concerns can be directed in private, where they'll probably go over more smoothly. Thanks to all of the GMs and members of the Homecoming Team for their dedication to monthly costume contests, wi

  2. Our GM team is full of amazing volunteers that I am grateful to call friends. I am happy to be a part of the team every single day. šŸ™‚

  3. I will say this specifically toward @Jimmy Thank you for putting up with me being kind of an asshat about things. It took someone else being in the exact same position I was to go "huh...so that's what that looks like from the outside...wow...I was kind of a douchebag about it..." unable to see past my own personal wants and desires (I mean who doesn't want more costumes, everyone wants more costume options, we want to be showered in them like some kind of creepy clothes shop based showering session...or something...). So yeah...sorry about all that...

  6. I have said on many occasions that getting to play this game again is a very rare second chance that life seldom grants to anyone. I feel fortunate every time I successfully log in, and play the only game I've ever wanted to play since the very first time in 2004. None of this would be possible without you guys keeping it going every day, and continuing to actually make it better! So here's to ya boys (and girls) of the Homecoming Dev team! May Paragon City live forever, and the wings of justice never lose a feather!

  7. I've said this a lot in other threads, but I am incredibly appreciative for everything the current devs do. I know you are volunteering and not making a penny out of it. I didn't realize how much I missed CoH until it came back. I was a little sore about the whole secret server thing for seven years, but meh, what's seven years amongst friends? Thanks to all the GMs and all the players. You complete me.

  9. +Recovery set bonuses suck. There, I said it. Why are they so weak? I do not know. The "Ultimate" level +Recovery set bonus is a 4% increase in Recovery, which is less than half of what you get putting a single SO into Stamina. That's the best one there is, and it makes me pinch my nose and go "pee-yew!" So how about we just buff them? Current (%) Proposed (%) Tiny 1 2.5 Small 1.5 3.75 Moderate 2 5 Large 2.5 6.25

  11. I have some perspective on this, as I spent quite a few years as an administrator for a gaming community with its own forums and passworded online games with scores of players active every night. The number of evenings I spent quietly working on forum postings, community policies, and chasing troublemakers out of the passworded games while everyone else got to play wore heavily on my determination to do my best in the role, but I stuck to my principles. There were always a few individuals espousing conspiracy theories about the admins and griping about policy and whatnot, but by a

  13. After Years trying to find something to fill the Hole left behind by the CoX sunset, Titan Network launched Titan Icon. If you have never seen it, It was basically a single player Paragon city with no powers, no badges, no people, that you could spawn and place Characters in. It was great to see the City but also very sad. Paragon Chat was much better with it's XMPP Server setup and multiple players and complete world badge hunting, finally something to DO, ( Thanks Codewalker ). And now here we are. Homecoming is the answer to the prayers of an entire community. As a result of the h

  15. I agree, and I hope they would implement a system where each stack gives the character a +2% +Special, maxing out at +10%. It doesnt sound like much, but that really does boost a lot for a character. 10% more heal, 10% more endurance mod, 10% more fly/run speed, 10% more defense (if you take powers like weave or maneuvers). And it would turn Amp Up into a beast as I would assume the +Special from your character would combine with the +Special given to the Amped Up ally. Plus it gives the set another identity that would be unique from all others. The chain mechanic is fantastic, an

  16. Haven't seen it mentioned but instead of simply buffing damage for KB magnitude, one thing I've been wanting to experiment with is to apply bonus damage if a knocked target hits something, based on how fast they were going when they slammed into the wall, etc. Kind of like fall damage but not strictly up and down. Obviously this is just an idea and I'm not sure how feasible it is due to balance concerns and figuring out the right amount of damage, but I can't deny it would feel epic. Unrelated to that: How would people feel about Air Superiority's KnockUp being changed to a high-ma

  17. Finally, new stuffs. I've been so busy with base editing and family stuff, I just haven't had the time to set up and do a video, but I finally got a couple together. My computer is refusing to run the software I used to do them on, so it doesn't help that, to get a video done, I have to move to an unfamiliar computer, but oh well, first world problems, heh. Anyway. I've been seeing a lot of questions as to water plates, as in, can you get a full horizon of water (no, but you can get it to extend past the base plot). How do you prevent people from falling through some of the water plates, and h

  19. Something to explicitly mention is that ATO and Winter sets were originally cash shop items, and their bonuses are intentionally too good because they sold for real money. There's no intention to make new sets to hit that level of power. Instead, at least for now, we are focusing explicitly on sets that fill specific holes (no damage in EndMod sets, bad Targeted AOE sets) without falling into powercreep. @oedipus_tex made an extremely good case why the original Bombardment was too good, and the comparisons being mostly to unique sets just proves their point. We want to add flexibil

  20. Devs, your time spent working on this game so that EVERYONE can play is very appreciated. Most of us don't expect any of you to be perfect, we are all human and we are all subject to have imperfections, but it's what is in your heart that counts. And your heart is in this game just like the rest of us. So for this, thank you very very much, from the bottom of my heart.

  22. This is a great idea and starts to provide some really interesting synergy with pairing sets. More - Def from Radiation blast, more - tohit from dark blast, more -end from elec blast, more slow from ice blast, longer CC from holds, immobilize, stuns etc. All of a sudden Electric Affinity has unique and real value

  24. What a lovely thread! Iā€™m incredibly grateful for every member of our volunteer team and love working with them every day! The hard work they put in behind the scenes is often unknown but highly appreciated! In reverse, thanks to all of the incredible players in this community. Your excitement and commitment to being a part of this game brings our team such joy!

  25. Global didn't exist when game was introduced. Game was designed in a time before the idea of a Charactername(@fullaccountname hidden used in other MMO) Also, topic ad infinitum ad nausea. This was just mentioned barely over a week, called "Squatting" but the greatest answer is : Lack of imagination and original ideal names Try name Someone got it first Try a different name Someone got it first Try a different name Someone got if first Everybody desires that specific name Lack of patience to find something different They

  26. Regen and recovery bonuses also tend to come early in the set. Often they're the 2 piece bonus. It's very easy to stack up multiples of them, and so they're weaker bonuses than the later set bonuses.

  29. Thanks for giving us another go at reviewing the set. I'll echo the sentiment of other players about the set still feeling like it needs buffs. It's slightly better than before though, discounting bugs. What I like: The set is on the path to being unique and different. That's important and I appreciate the love you are putting into it! What I'd like to see improved: I still think the set is not generous enough with its buff numbers and durations. IMO the pet needs the Singularity treatment. Or at least be as strong as the pet from Dark

  30. When changing alignment from red to blue, or vice versa, the game automatically removes the event notification channel of the alignment you just left. As changing alignments is very easy now, it would be quite nice if this was changed so chat tabs stay as they are when the change happens.

  35. Also, call me paranoid, but the potential for trolling or outright impersonation would only increase if multiple players could have characters with exactly the same name. I've seen enough drunk and/or emotionally-charged players generate drama which just spreads like wildfire. I'm not eager to provide a tool for that kind of conduct to be employed with more precision.
