  1. I recently started semi-dating a gamer (different game), and was telling him over the weekend how I used to play CoH and LOVED it (Had a level 50 healer and Scrapper) Googled some stuff when I got home last night out of nostalgia and WHA.....HOW DID I NOT KNOW IT HAD BEEN REBORN!?!?? Was So Exited I downloaded the stuff and can't wait to get home. Would love to get my 50 girls back in action, but doubt that's gonna be. Plus...my gamer skills are pretty dusty, so I may need to just level my new peeps up just to learn the ropes again. But so excited to start

  2. Is there anyone still reading this thread who's under the impression this is something the HC team want to do? IMO, it's pretty clear that (1) NCsoft is requiring them to do this as one of the conditions of negotiation, and (2) another condition is that they can't outright say so. Which sucks, but guess what? There's damn little any of us can do about it. Today is my mother's birthday. I wish very much that she was here, but she's not. That's an unfortunate fact, and no amount of wishing or wanting will change that. Y'all are blaming the messenger when it's pretty

  3. If that’s what you take away from what I said, then we agree to disagree, and there is nothing left to be said. I advised that further discussion take place via DM to the Devs, who can address their concerns directly. NOT a total cessation of discussion. But, the pubic discussion on the topic here in the forum has accomplished little in the last few pages, and the responses have not either. The official ones, and non-official alike. We are all pretty much at the same place we started. There has just been a bit of clarification on some specifics. That being done many pages ago

  6. Yes, those require a small bit of extra work to split the models since a lot of the shoulders have left and right pieces in a single geo together, but are on the radar for the next phase of the project.

  7. Farsight and Fade have been considered problem powers for a while now, and brought up a lot internally. Fade just happened to be caught in an audit. We have been developing tools to enforce rule sets that might have been missed over the years, similar to how we have been addressing many PvP rule loopholes. That audit also revealed Elixir of Life and Sentinel’s Genomic Evolution, powers that should had been flagged to be ignoring buffs. Without this flag, +Resistance values get boosted by inspirations, damage buffs and Build Up, so it needs to be there. Farsight is bein

  10. As a means for not going too off topic in other threads, I felt compelled to start a discussion specific to this issue (thanks @Dr Causalityfor suggesting it). For those that don't know, the reason why all of the enhanceable resistance powers (such as armors, but also heals that may have toxic resistance included, or powers like Fade that provide both defense and resistance) get flagged as "Ignores outside buffs" is because of a weird interaction between Damage buffs and Damage Resistance. @Trickshootergoes into great detail about this interaction (I'll find the link l

  12. It’s very obvious reading through this thread that many people do not have a grasp on business negotiations and confidentiality. No amount of demands for further “transparency” will change things that aren’t up to community vote. Also, business negotiations can take a very long time and be very volatile. I’ve been part of an acquisition that spanned the course of 3 years. Basically every few months the acquisition negotiations went from “the deal is off” to “should be closing next week.” People also need to understand that NCSOFT basically has all of the power on these negotiati

  13. I also feel it should be noted - they're not looking to ban folks for messing up. If you make a parody toon, it's probably going to be fine. But if not, the GMs first response isn't to nuke you from orbit. They'll probably reach out and discuss it with you. And as for the SG naming thing... As a person who has Scrapyarders for his SG - yeah, sort of sucks. But I sort of get it. So I am changing it to "Scrapyarders Union #011". I was a bit confused when I saw some SGs with the name of Lore established things. One in particular was confusing because I was under the impression tha

  14. In general we're quite happy with how Faraday works right now. As pointed out in several other posts, it is a bit stronger than other comparable powers, and has its downsides too. Nice idea - I'll take a look at this tonight.

  15. IMO as soon as they figure out how to do "negative knockback," FF needs to have a crush/gather power that jams enemies within a certain radius onto a single point, making it easy to herd them for other folks to blast. They also need a sort of "Force Cage" power where you have a circle radius at an area, and any enemy who tries to cross it gets knocked back towards the middle. Like a ring of mini versions of the Earthquake pseudopet.

  18. None of the above. I've said it elsewhere: 1) Up damage to 1.0 scale. 2) Up defense scale to match Scrappers and Stalkers 3) Completely drop Opportunity and replace it with something else 4) Revisit and test the AoE cap decreases to see if they are also still necessary after the above changes I am honestly surprised that the priority has been put on fixing things like Dark Melee when the whole of the Sentinel AT is in such a bad place. Kheldians probably deserve attention before them, but at least both PBs and WSs are ponies with one good trick, while Se

  19. Two days, four simple bids at 10,000 inf went unfilled. Got fed up, started dropping 50k bids to get recipes crafted. Got me thinking about the math on all this because there is definitely some... uh, "investing" being done. Right now there's an overflow of common salvage beyond the seed volume of ~650k. Assuming that the majority of that overflow could be filled at 500 or less INF a piece, I could buy the whole lot at 322M, and if I relisted the entire lot at 5k a piece, I would net profit 2.7B INF (assuming I could actually find a way to store 650,000 pieces of common salvage).

  20. Unless the absorb shield gets a major buff (which it somewhat can't because eventually you run into the max absorb cap of a Defender's base HP), increasing the recharge and duration further is just nerfing the power. The power at best does ~520 HP with enhancements on a single target, 390 HP for the next ally in the chain, and 260 HP for the rest of the team. Those numbers over 45 seconds (or for 30s for that matter) isn't amazing, so increasing the recharge large enough to require full recharge enhancement and additional global recharge to only provide a 260-520HP shield every 45

  21. Finally! My shield tank can have Justice gloves on her shield arm, and Justice W/Plate on her free arm! No more clipping into the emitter! - Splitting and unsplitting gloves worked as expected. - Edited colors, linked and unlinked, standard gloves and asymmetrical gloves, all four combinations worked fine. - Saved and loaded a Beta costume file, loaded and edited a Live costume file with no problems. - Took her street sweeping outside of Icon with asymmetrical gloves, no animation weirdness noted. About the only thing I can complain about is jumping back to the default gloves e

  23. Naming policy is just added clarity to an already existing policy, rules were not changed. Video policy makes sense, we are playing an illegal version of CoH, HC is attempting to get legal status via licensing or otherwise and it was already somewhat not permitted on the platforms themselves, just not really big enough to have a notable takedown happen yet. Take the tinfoil hats off and stow the borderline psychotic theories, this isn't some crazy illuminati nonsense.

  24. If people would pump the brakes on the outrage, they'd instantly have more clarity. It's extremely straightforward. Well before now as in.... back in August? See above link. You can likely thank the DMCA takedown of ssundae's incredible hulk video for that. Streaming this game was never an integral part of the community on live, j/s. Yes, yes it does. Illegal profit from an IP that NCSoft still holds? That's a big no no. Then Rebirth will probably end up with a legal mess on their hands. ☝

  26. Just putting up my list of gimmies for this particular Blaster secondary since it was a late addition and likely pushed out without shoring up some issues. Some low hanging fruit Sting of the wasp and Golden Dragonfly - could stand to get the blasterdization treatment and be adjusted with longer rech/higher END cost for bigger damage. The Lotus Drop - either adjust its rech to match its damage or adjust its damage to match its rech. The main issue Shinobi is holding the set back a bit. This is supposed to be the replacement for Build Up but instead of

  27. Earlier today, some discussions on the HC Discord prompted the idea of being able to toggle PVP inside of SG bases. Some folks even discussed the fun activities they could do. Like Role Playing, Raiding, etc. What are your thoughts on the idea of being able to toggle PVP on and off inside of SG bases?

  28. Ok. Everyone. Just stop. . . . We need to join forces and compel the Homecoming Team to make a "Just For Fun" P2W Vendor Power which is a golf club that deals 0 Damage, but has the highest maximum Knockback, BUT only works on enemies who con grey to you (so it can't be used to screw with actual gameplay).

  30. What I wish for: Opportunity rework that mostly respects what currently exists and just makes it better with less friction. Offensive and Defensive Opportunities blended into one, activated by either the T1 or T2. Being able to stack Opportunities between different Sentinels. Letting Sentinels apply Opportunity again if the previous Opportunity target died (I don't care about this one at all personally, but I feel it would really help the perception the inherent is useless on teams) What I hope for: for whatever change happens to not be destructive to the current playstyle of the A

  35. While you guys are tweaking the Leadership visuals, a NoFX version of the toggles would be a godsend. I hate those little spinning icons. Tangentially related, taking the little spinning icons FX away from the Pet Aura IOs would also be amazing, especially since there's no way to get rid of them short of having a second build for aesthetics.

  37. Didn't click the poll. There are several of those things that could be possible fixes when combined but no one change is going to "fix" the AT. Personally, I think the snipe power replacers are fine. Lacking snipe isn't the issue and it never was. Repel isn't an issue, its also only in 1 power in 1 primary, but I wouldn't regret seeing it removed from Blazing Blast. Lacking Build-Up wasn't an issue. Aim has more To-Hit in the first place. I actually like some of the uniqueness of the AT from its Blaster/Corruptor/Defender cousins. Opportunity uptime isn't much of an issue either.

  38. Force Field. With IO sets, the Barrier Destiny, and other newer power sets like Time Manipulation and Cold Domination, all of the +defense that Force Field provides is mostly wasted. The other key part of Force Field, knockback, is simply not wanted by the vast majority of teams.

  39. This update is blessed. However: I've noticed that "Cosmic Corsair 1 Pegleg Left/Right" is not an option for asymmetry...The wooden peg legs are also not available in asymmetry. Was that intended? It would be FANTASTIC if we could get double peg legs.

  41. Positive Gamer SHOULD have known this could easily happen. HC has never supported the sharing of streamed content or posted videos. Just an FYI - He does not garner NEARLY enough views to be monetized on either Twitch or YouTube - if his fans are so worried about his financial well being they can continue to send him money. Regarding your request for information regarding the talks - they are ongoing and this move and change to the rules is a direct response to those ongoing talks - you're welcome.

  42. Very few people stream/post vids on CoH. If these people like CoH as much as they claim they do...then they will support their attempt at becoming legitimate to ensure a future for this game. It's not like any of the streamers/posters on YT have nearly enough views to be monetized aside from the regulars who donate via tips.

  43. As the current leader of the above-mentioned group(as the character Lady Britannia), I'd like to echo what was said by One Hit Wonder. Our original leader received permission from the developers to use the Dawn Patrol name in the first days of the game being live, and he still has the email proving that. We were an active roleplay group on the Virtue server under the Dawn Patrol name right up until the live shutdown. For our entire sg existence, we have strove to keep all our roleplay based with a strict reverence towards all lore established at the time of the game going live and all lo

  44. I take it as their attempt to establish an environment that will closely approximate the one that will exist if/when the negotiations for legitimization conclude. They have done this almost from the start. I believe it was a conscious attempt to demonstrate that such a thing could be done. A useful point to make in these kinds of negotiations if one wishes to prove that the will abide by the terms of said agreement, and so will their players. If legitimacy happens, I'd imagine the rules for streaming will likely relax, or go away altogether. But, if we were operating in a "wil

  47. I could be wrong, but I think the issue with the videos is monetization. People who stream and post videos publicly are benefiting monetarily (more views and subscribers leads to ad revenue and such) and it's not hard to see why that's a legally dicey situation. And if that IS the case, then videos posted privately so they can be shared with one another aren't going to be as heavily policed (or policed at all). Personally, I never got into streaming, either as a content creator or a viewer, and it baffles me to wonder why people think it's an 'integral' part of a game that existed

  48. Without giving anything back to the players? How about the fact that they provide a second chance to play a long dead game completely free of charge? Come on folks! Are we so used to the idea of CoH being back, that we now take it for granted, and want things that might be contrary to their efforts to make it permanent? The lack of faith demonstrated about their efforts is a little jarring, considering they've always been as transparent, and forthcoming as they can be within a legal framework, and never did anything to violate anyone's trust along the way.
