  2. Snarky never said "nobody should ever run this at +4". or that people who run it at +4 are morally bad people. He said: Which is always a good idea. I don't care if person setting up the group wants an easy-peasy speed run, or a World-On-Molasses Kill All Max Difficulty run with challenge settings that disable enhancements. It's always a good idea to be as specific as you can be when recruiting. What is the team for? What difficulty settings will be in place? Challenge Settings / Badge Goals if any (Master Of, or the like). It avoids so many headaches, both

  3. Idea…. When Atlantis was destroyed in a parallel universe where it DID exist, some of it’s inhabitants managed to escape to alternate universe’s where it never existed. Once there, these refugees found themselves mostly keeping quiet about Atlantis so as to not bring any further judgement upon themselves… however, there are some who have heard the ‘stories’ only to discount them as fable. Then there are those who could not remain quiet, deciding to face fate head on, and using their considerable knowledge and powers to do good in their new realm. Not perfect by any stretch but it’s

  4. Everyone, It's been a decidedly unpleasant break - Nov. 30 2012 to June 5 2021 - but I am enormously pleased to be able to say "Hello" to a Paragon City that has opened its doors and streets to punks, mask-wearing thugs and arch-villains who just won't take a hint and start hitting the Hollywood studios looking for a subject promotion that gets major approval and is caught in development hell. Paragon Chat was nice, although not even having the burger places open was a bit off-putting. I am looking forward very much to facing off against no-goodniks who refuse, as a matter of pri

  5. I have said it many times, and will say it many more. At this stage in the game's life, canon is more of a suggestion than anything. If canon doesn't work with the concept/background for your character, then sure, you can change your concept to fit the canon. I prefer, instead, to look at my changes as introducing new pieces of lore, than everyone else can accept or ignore at their leisure. Saves me from a lot of overthinking, and gives me room to flex creatively. Also, I made an undersea Atlantian-ish character just last night. Nauti-Gal!

  20. We initially filled the Classic Positron team but one member was interrupted by the real life AV and had to bow out. Caged-Cube, my Ice/electric affinity controller Lumin Kitty, Peacebringer Critical Missy, stalker Hellstryker, scrapper Mae Ienah, Demon/Time MM Darkness and Shadow, Sentinel Deaf from Bellow, Sonic/Kin corruptor We didn't really grind, had some casualties, but we finished in 1 hr 52 min. Fun was had by all. By suggestion, next Friday we are setting our sights on the Ouro Sister Psyche.

  21. I think the issue here is your definition of "bad behavior". You make a lot of statements, and it took me about 4 pages to cover all of them. And, I looked it over, and deemed it a bit too harsh. In a nutshell, I have seen rude behavior on every server. I have also seen generosity, civility, humor on all the servers as well. If you see more rudeness on Excelsior, I would suggest that's because you see more people on Excelsior. Truth is - if you look for a problem, you will find it. So, yeah, I think there's some perception bias on your part. And you owe Jits an apology. Clearly,

  22. There are times losing or lowering costs is a good thing. Having to hope your SG mates scrape together enough for your base builder to add a desk *and* chair? That's a cost that was decidedly limiting. Losing the need for Prestige to base build (on top of other changes between SCORE and here) was good - it really did allow creativity to practically explode in some instances. Losing or lowering the cost of "do I take this power / use this pool" like this though? I'm less for it, and don't honestly buy the creativity argument. That has a direct impact on gameplay and the overall powe

  23. I think this is the misconception that ruins your experience. There is nothing magical about having 8 players rather than 5-6 that makes or breaks a +4 TF. On the curve of easier to harder, it becomes harder, sure. But the change from +0 to +4 is a hell of a lot harder than going from 8 players to 6 players. So, once the leader unilaterally announces to run it at +4... You can feel safe in leaving, if you don't like it. He cranked up it three notches, you added one extra. More importantly, the extra difficulty you introduce by leaving is optional. The leader can c

  24. You're aware that there are *other* levels between -1 and +4, right? And that nobody has to build characters to your liking, or that doing so or not has any impact on how well the character's built? Or, for that matter, *how* anyone wants to play at any particular time?

  25. This is exactly when it becomes crystal clear that all the time and effort the Homecoming Team spends on extremely Unsexy Infrastructure updates is SO Important. I have a Windows Server, ( no hard drive or OS ), sitting at my house that I got from work after our recent upgrade. I really plan to build it up and use it as a COH Local Client on my home Network for posterity, but have never got moving on it. HC IS SPOILING ME, LOL. Sorry to hear about the other servers demise, but thanks to the Homecoming Team for all that you do to keep us running and oblivious.

  26. I was bored tonight, flying around the Rogue Isles, when I got a notice: [PPD] Unusual Clockwork activity in Kings Row. I teleported to Kings Row, and found the spot where Paladin was being constructed: -1640 -42 1729 I just flew over and watched the construction, and eventually Paladin spawned. He took off like a dart with a bunch of his Clockwork buddies. He ran literally underneath the tram. I was waiting for him to get droned he was so close to the tram. Nope, he kept on going, still at full speed... right into the police drone in front of the AE building at:

  27. Now that page 2 is out I want to suggest allowing more pools to be selected if possible. I could see myself wanting powers from Fighting, Concealment, Speed, Fly, Leaping, and Leadership, but I can't have all. Any reason not to increase the number of pools?

  28. People already handwave in Jedi's, Anime characters from mythical kingdom's not mentioned in lore, Space travellers who crash-landed and are stuck in Paragon (saw a Tiger-head character with a backstory naming them a Master of Orion Mrrshan), etc. Not to mention squads of Cowfolk. Go Nuts. No one has to take your backstory seriously who doesn't want to. No one should care if yours and there's disconnect.

I have a DualPistols/Martial Blapper who uses /bind j "PowExecLocation Target Burst of Speed$$PowExecToggleOn Reaction Time" to Jump into melee and /bind k "PowExecLocation 180:44 Combat Teleport$$PowExecToggleOff Reaction Time" to Kick back to blasting range (max range for Empty Clips). It is tons of fun. I have also used /bind j PowExecLocation Target Burst of Speed on melee toons to jump from mob to mob. This is a build modified from NinjaBlade/Dark to Nin/Nin...

Enjoy! https://hcwiki.cityofheroes.dev/wiki/Costume_Emote_CCRainbow This was my first stab at making a GIF, and it lost a little quality in translation from screenshots to GIF, but from what I have read there may be nothing I can do about that given the GIF format limitations. I used GIMP to animate it, and if anyone has any pointers for potentially making it a bit higher image quality I am all ears. If I can get it to a higher quality state I will upload a new version. My basic process was: Dump screenshots (JPG format) from demo playback Select range of sc

  34. Can I just say anyone who attacked people trying to run a beloved game for people's enjoyment can kiss my fat Irish ass. And people wonder why my personal quote is "Eventually, cynicism becomes observation." What does crapping on a server running COH do, other than increase some hackers e-peen? Seriously.

  35. "People aren't arguing against my point, therefore I am right" Yeah, that's not how that works. Every last thing you listed, happens on every server, on every game in existence. You are either oblivious to it, or for some reason hate Excelsior so much that you make mental notes (or actual notes, not sure just how anal you really are) about it. Ever thought about not logging onto that particular server? There are far more players on Excelsior than any other server, therefore it you will experience more of what bothers you - it only makes sense.

  38. Something that always seems to get lost in these discussions of "official" events is that the vast majority of players are not on the forums, have no idea when scheduled events take place, and are happy that way. I wasn't there for the drama described, but I would hope that it is exaggerated. For someone leading anything to "ban" players from their raid because they joined an earlier one is . . . insane. And rude. And unnecessary. I do sort of agree that the original organizer should have just said, "oh cool, I'll join that one in 30 mins then!" But I am also sym

  40. -1 on a TF/SF is impossible. You can set it, but the game will put it at +0 anyhoo. FWIW, I run speed runs of level 50 TFs at +2 because I dislike seeing blue and white con mobs.

  43. True, but in context of Snarky's statement, the lead waited until go to make the declaration. Why is that? If he was planning it, why not declare it up front in recruitment stage? Regardless of how Snarky reacts, the lead didn't have the best interests of his team at heart. It sounds like he was more concerned about a longer recruitment period. As a player, I appreciate notification of more challenging levels before I join. It has nothing to do with survival and everything to do with how much time I have budgeted.

  44. Wise advice. Thank you. I will NOT stay in the future. I find it amusing that a few of the responders think I do not have good builds or that I do not run hard content. Maybe I am not a great builder. So I ask for great builds from the boards lol. Maybe i am not a leader of hard content. But I am a great follower. I take part in a Really Hard Way Magisterium every weekend. I just do what I'm told, but I take part. We get the Master Badge every weekend I been doing it as well. I will run some content at +4. It makes sense to me to run ITF at +4 kill alls. P

  45. Heh. I recently saw folks quit a TF because the PUG-leader was asking for everyone to turn down their difficulty to -1; I'm not exactly sure why this request was made. The PUG-leader was trying to make a case that this was necessary to finish Synapse, which was made all the weirder because the PUG-leader was a full-kit level 50 build that wanted to 'show off' soloing against the Clockwork King.

  47. Sentinels are basically an attempt to create the 'pure ranged with an armor' archetype, but they're balanced in a way where they just kinda end up as a poor man's SoA. As it stands, they're supposed to be your group's 'sniper', or something like that. The dude that spots and weakens priority targets, but with more emphasis on blasting than say, a corr or defender. Problem is that a soldier of arachnos, for all intents and purposes, fills this role 5000% better. Between their leadership, debuffs and general usefulness at every level with their leadership, they're so much

  49. The only word I got here started with a F, and rhymes with luck. The peeps that run this server are hardcore City of Heroes fans, of course. As are all the people playing. I am so terribly sad over this. I am also grateful that Homecoming is here and has not been brought down by these types of situations. I want to thank the hard working behind the scenes crew who give us Villains, Rogues, ...and the other guys I suppose, a place to call home.

For the blue side Terror Volta respec, I have Atomic Unit, Radiation/Water Defender For the red side Thorn Tree respec, I have Dr. Snake Oil, Water/Poison Corruptor Looking though my people, I don't have as many corruptors and defenders as I imagined I did. Only 7 total out of 81 characters. Five on Rich, none on Rich 2, and two on Rich 3.
