  1. The conversation is no longer constructive and some posts needed to be removed, so locking this thread. The overall winner and photos will be published soon in a separate thread. Also in regards to the judging process, please see my previous statement from the original post, quoted above.

  2. I got a runner-up and demand NO recounts (never got even a mention in a CC b4). But seriously, there were some amazingly awesome thematic characters. While we were standing around on Indom, I was looking at nearby toons that would clearly not qualify and had trouble noting any one. So many clever and unique costumes...pretty inspiring actually. When they called my toon name, I was like "yay! Congrats! Way to go! Wait.....that's ME! What do I do now?!" Momentarily forgot where the movement keys are. And trembling, I started mashing buttons, hit "R" and ran into a wall. :/

  3. I said I'd draw a drawing of whoever responded first while we were waiting for people to join in Pont Du Hoc FB. As promised drawn with sharpie though I did cheat and make a separate sketch (with pen so it is also unerasable) where I figured out the pose and stuff. Sorry for the lack of scanner. Technically I think I still have one but it is covered in my hoarder stash somewhere.

  5. Ask a hundred people what makes CoH the best MMO, and you're likely to get 100 (or more) answers. There's just so much to love. And there's never been another MMO quite like it. You want a fantasy MMO? Those are a dime a dozen, and they all feel like cookie cutouts. Some might have interesting and unique mechanics such as a card game based diplomacy system, but they mostly are identical. Play one, and you've pretty much played them all. So just find the particular flavor you prefer. But CoH? It was unique, and it's still unique. Others have tried to cash in on the superhero subgenre, and some

  6. I agree, it is too complex of a concept to rely on visual alone, and I wish the contest had combined bio with costume. I made a Rapunzel character but visually she just looks like a blonde-haired girl dressed in scraps and rags and peasant clothing. And even her name would not give her away because of course I had to come up with an alternative for her real name, so I used Bellflower. So I wrote her a story to make it complete for myself even if not part of the judging yesterday. Your character looks great! How do you mean right place at the right time, did you win?

  7. Lots of fun again! Thank you all who came along. Thanks for the screen shots, @FrauleinMental and @Midnyte! LoL at Crystal Arrow as a rikti monkey I will have to skip running a Something Wicked Sunday next week (8/8) but we'll return again on the following Sunday. If that changes, I'll holler out here and make the adjustments. Something Wicked Sunday III. 8/15, noon EST. Tarikoss SF and zombie apocalypse! Tarikoss is the WST for double merits and potential Notice of the Well for 50s. The zombie apocalypse for some badges! Get the red out!

  9. I joined CoH during the 1 year anniversary event in 2005. It was my first MMO, I fell in love, then (if I'm honest with myself) got seriously addicted. Even after a year and a half of doing nothing but eating, sleeping, going to work, or playing CoH and thus burning out it was still my favorite leisure activity. It had managed to replace reading or vegging out watching tv. For nearly a decade I had a subscription to the game. Towards the end I didn't subscribe every month, but that's only because the game had moved to a F2P model, so I was able to play without paying when finances were tight.

So imagine an orange diamond. https://ibb.co/6y8MX5X https://ibb.co/88vzKf3 https://ibb.co/TPh010p https://ibb.co/n1pdHP4

  11. Things are already being tested in closed beta (technically alpha?). I have no estimate as to when it will reach Brainstorm. As for announcements, Cipher mentioned the need for testers in Saturday's Donations announcement. Maybe not exactly what you were looking for but it was an indication of things happening soonish

  13. Pets do wipe fairly often at high difficulties, but, against +4x8, any other AT is still going to use way more endurance cleaning up the entire mob than the MM would just recasting their T1 summon a couple of times and re-upgrading. The T2 and T3 most likely donโ€™t need to be resummoned every mob. As for running tests on SOโ€™s or without using oneโ€™s secondary/pools, I have no interest in testing arbitrary conditions I literally never use. I have never slotted a single SO since live.

  17. To the problem that your new friend is having: If he is from I2, then the whole invention system and the auction house will be new to him. I suggest he runs the in-game University tutorial on crafting so he knows how to do that. I suggest also checking out one or more guides on how the /AH works (although I admit the one I wrote may not be as newby -friendly as it could be). To the idea that there is no supply: Poppycock. These things trade all the time. I buy and sell GotA every marketing day. If the problem is that there is no supply at the price he

  18. There is some parallelity going on between the two arcs. The villain, Protean, is the same, and he is obsessed with making clones of you for his nefarious purposes. One interesting tidbit. If you do Leonard's arc first, there is an extra little bit of dialog when you meet and begin Jenni Adair's arc.

  21. Nah, it's all good. My kids were about 5 and went from Reader Rabbit to CoH. By 7 of so they were able teammates. Running a few missions with my son once a week or so - he's 21 - keeps us in touch across a few thousand miles. Aging is good sometimes.

  24. Creme Brulรฉe would be various creamy shades of yellow, orange, brown. Like Mister Marzipan, LOL, just use that costume again and alter the colors a little! I worked on Key Lime Pie last night and also struggled with how to make white whipped cream trim on slick green filling. I made like 6 different costume designs and don't like any of them. LOL. All the white fur pieces which would be great as whipped cream have a grayscale tone to them so it just looks like dirty whipped cream. No dirty cream on my pie, thank you! You should make Bananiac into a Banana Cream Pie!

  27. There is always that one guy who complains that they didn't win. You cannot win them all, I mean I haven't won a single costume contest since I first started playing on this game. I don't attend costume contests to win, in fact I like to predict who will win and it makes things more interesting for me. If I win, I win, it's not like it's end all be all. I attend costume contests to have fun, see how creative our community can get, don't stifle your creativity because you lost.If the judges don't have the same tastes as you or you feel like the CC is the lottery, so what?

  28. And I find some IRL that obsess over those games. They tried CoX before shut down, didn't like it, and "couldn't quit fast enough." I tell them it's back new & improved! ๐Ÿ˜ But they're aloof, and I'm labeled as a knuckle dragging village idiot. And I don't care, I got my game back!

  29. This is my favorite MMO of all time. But I would submit that Eve Online is the best MMO of all time. It's simply so big and so much to do. But it isn't my favorite. I would follow that up with Star Wars - the Old Republic. Those two games are really strong but the asshattery of the common player detracts from the experience. Age of Conan was good, but the lackluster player base was, well, lackluster. The game could have been much better. Big missed opportunity. I would place Dark Age of Camelot as second place of all time (in my opinion). There

  30. Clones are pretty interesting opponents. Back in the OG game, before Trick Arrow was buffed, a dirty trick was to join a Posi 1 Task Force and not mention that your clone was for sure going to have Flash Arrow. What made this so hilarious is that Trick Arrow itself had *no* capability of protecting the team but the clone could single handedly destroy the team by blinding them. That still kinda happens, but at least now TA is a good set. If you end up teaming with one on Posi 1 tho be sure to take out their clone first.

You guys are some of the most wonderful people! โค๏ธ I appreciate y'all showing up early to help me out. ๐Ÿ™‚ I've never done an LRSF before, but lucky me I do have a vill on Everlasting who's at 45 that will pop over. Normally she's a member of a cult who's slowly turning into a demon, but for this run she'll be Cookie Dough - Demons/Storm MM ((I'll have to temporarily rename her demons as well, lol)).

  33. On the less silly side, more of an RP character is Kid Kibuka. Kibuka is the East Africa god of storms and war, who rides on a cloud. He's basically a combination of Thor and Ares. This concept leans into the idea that he's been reincarnated. https://ibb.co/5Rcsq7b

  34. Much of the concerns about knockback are overblown, and one can completely ameliorate most concerns by simply being a little more thoughtful about it. As a once and current Energy Blaster, here are my simple rules for managing knockback on Energy Blast: Put KB-to-KD IOs in your AoEs. You don't need KB-to-KD IOs on all of your attacks. KB is fine on single-target attacks, especially when soloing: it's a form of damage mitigation/control. KB is a headache on AoE attacks, as it affects you and your team. Therefore, only your AoE powers really need to the KB2KD IOs: Energy Torren

  35. As far as I can tell, the "Avg Wait" column is meaningless. Personally, I would love to see this replaced with "# Running" - if that's at all possible. Basically just a count of how many instances we have running out there already of any particular trial. As a frequent league leader, if I could see there are already 2 BAFs running out there but no LAMs, for instance, that would help me determine what I could run that people may be interested in.

  36. Bopper's CoH Tools and Formulas Over the past year I have written numerous guides and I have read numerous guides. And from those guides I developed tools that I use to do calculations fairly quickly. One of my tools I shared previously (The Survivability Tool), but I decided to share the rest of them in a single Google Sheets document. So, over the past month I ported them into a Google Spreadsheet and I think itโ€™s cleaned up enough to share with the community. Most of these tools are from guides I posted, but a handful of them are tools created from information learned by others.

  38. Hey folks, So I'm finally getting around to a */Time Blaster (she's Fire Primary). One question I have, it seems like the whole set has effects that depend on the special Statuses applied by the T1 and the Build Up (I want to say it's Delayed and Accelerated). Silly question, the De/Buff set also applies Statuses by those same names. Will they also provide the additional effects, or did the HC team just reuse the names but they're different things under the hood? Thanks for your time, have a great day. Generator

  39. Instead of chat filling up with โ€œLF AE Farm. Please please pleaseโ€, it will be filled with โ€œNeed 1mill infl. Please please please. IMO, we should be working on ways to get more people to play. Not even faster ways to max out their toons. You mentioned that you like doing content with people - so why not do it? Why the need to get to 50 so fast? Take the time to smell the roses. You might find that they smell good.

  40. ended up slotting out my archery character. archery sucks, wow. tac arrow is still pretty amazing though - the amount of CC it provides allows for a lot of stability combined with the ranged aoes of archery. definitely my most stable blaster character in terms of runs just because of the combo of tac arrow and the low recharge on rain of arrows+weak damage on archery allowing for a nuke every single group due to how long it takes to kill them, haha. archery/tactical arrow blaster avg: 9m3s video: runs:

  42. This is a matter I actually had discussed with my roleplaying guide class tonight. You have every right to say no, reject their tells, and hide yourself from being contacted, your ignore via the chat window is global to their account. If the problem persists, this is why the report feature is built into the game as well. Taking a stance against unwanted, and uninvited attention of that kind is one of the big reasons why I started teaching the newer roleplayers about the rule of consent, because no one should ever feel guilted, or bad for saying no to unwanted advances of any kind.

  47. For consideration: This build gets these values: That's pre MotT Procs, so its really capped on S/L/E/F/T and just off Negative, 56 on Cold/Psi. Lower than yours on those two, but, up from 32% S/L and 35% Melee defense to 39.5/43.9%, near cap. Regen a bit lower, but the defense will make up for that. Recovery looks lower, but is actually higher with the procs in health and stamina. I did add Eviscerate, mostly for the melee defense in the set bonus, but if you try the attack I think you'll find its almost worth the animation time on Tanker. Tankers get the area bo

  48. WOO! Thanks for that. I have a decent understanding of this game but I learn something new almost every day! I remember watching your 240p (360p?) videos over a decade ago on YouTube. Back then, I was a rookie. Didn't farm, had not honed my build-theory skills, etc. Eventually I was able to make my one and only "God-tier" build before the Live servers went down. I believe you posted something on the forums back then about Dark/Shield being far superior than your Dark/SR Scrapper you had spent so much time on. I eventually built one, spent months acquiring all those IOs we used to have to pull
