  1. Hello everyone! It's now been just over two years since Torchbearer, the very first Homecoming shard, came online, and 17 years to the day since City of Heroes first launched! It's been a very difficult year for all of us, with the pandemic impacting our lives in so many ways. Despite this, we're happy that City of Heroes has been a much-welcomed escape for many of you during this trying time, and we're incredibly proud of how the Homecoming community rallied around our [email protected] initiative to aid in vital Coronavirus research. Our [email protected] team is currently ranked #71 wo

  3. I am usually mostly a 'forum lurker' especially in most mmo's anymore. I pop in to keep my fingers on the pulse of what is going on and look up things I need answers to. But posting on a lot of forums feels a lot like volunteering to be the target at a shooting range. Some forums you can't say so much as 'hi' without someone eagerly wanting to debate or challenge your concept of reality. Not so here. These forums, the HC team, this community - ALL OF YOU - you are all wonderful. Lately I've been downright 'chatty' and enjoying myself and thinking, "Wow, this is a really well b

  4. Patch Notes: Issue 27, Page 2 Tour Guide Missions Issue 27, Page 2 introduces a brand new type of mission: Tour Guide Missions. These are special tip missions which drop when street sweeping in most zones, and will direct you to any exploration badges that you haven't yet earned in that zone. This is especially helpful for unlocking Long Range Teleporter destinations without needing to rely on VidiotMaps.

  5. If there are any former Co* developers here, and they're not speaking up about that, it's best to assume they want their anonymity and privacy and leave them alone, rather than try to ferret them out.

  6. Though this page is still locked, you may have seen a preview on the Anniversary post of a few Warriors sneaking out for a rooftop break. I am still hard at work diversifying the first pass of choices, then I will be opening up a new thread for discussion. Feel free to leave reaction emojis to this post in the meantime: Like: Not bad so far Confused: Something's not right Sad: I dislike something I saw.

  9. Yes, it's hurting everyone who plays the game, directly, by placing the game at risk of further legal issues and potentially forcing the HC team to abandon the project entirely. If this kind of behavior continues, it will, eventually, force a confrontation with a comic book publisher, which will, in turn, force NCSoft to take action in order to distance themselves, and then it's all over. Furthermore, the HC team, collectively, would be held responsible in a copyright infringement lawsuit, which could cost them their savings, their homes, their jobs and their futures, and as decen

  12. I understand the thinking here, and I see the appeal of a 'I can do anything I want at any time and get rewarded; play my way' style of game but I would argue that outside of AE, the concept is best kept limited to zone events and giant monsters as it is now. I have two reasons for thinking this way: The first: The thrill and engagement of the new player growth experience. This is often underestimated in importance, but is an element that contributes to the long-term future and health of the game and its player base. While less important to somebody leveling their hundredth character, th

  17. Report things you see. We receive and action reports like this all the time. If this had been reported, it would've been actioned. We also see complaints from people that we don't do anything - and usually those people have never sent any reports. If you don't report it, we won't be aware of it, and nothing will happen. If we do take any action, you will not be informed. Anything that occurs after the report is between us and the reported player. Just because you aren't informed, it doesn't mean no action has been taken.

  18. I want to preface this by saying I'm not nearly as good at design as some folks in here. I'm very "plain Jane" with a lot of costumes, sticking to similar costume "sets" and color schemes, but I went a bit farther this time and I'm really happy with how it came out. Meet Low Point, my Ice/Icy Dominator. I'm particularly happy with this one because I didn't stick to any one set like I usually do, and found a bunch of good pieces that I mixed and matched into a good look for him. He's an unstable, nihilistic youth who developed super powers from a mutation, and is out to make the world just a

  29. For 1,000 years he has been the default pronoun in the English language when the person is hypothetical or sex of the person being referred to is not known. Combing through a ton of descriptions and changing them to a pronoun that is "more acceptable by today's standards" is an awful lot of work just to virtual signal to your friends on Twitter/Facebook. Speech is not violence. And being accidentally referred to by the wrong pronoun isn't going to harm you in any way. Just in case it isn't clear: I vote 'no'.

  30. I understand where you're coming from, and you're not wrong in that regard. This game was designed to flexibly accommodate as wide a variety of player concepts as possible, and is one of the reason that it is beloved so. Generally, any concept you can think of, with some elbow grease and flexibility can be realized in-game as a playable character. (Obviously there are limits, but imagination tends to cover the difference when it has to.) However, that being said, the player canon, will always be, the player's own canon. While it can be built off the game's canon, the reverse is not so readi

  31. Hey, everyone. I'm a longtime player of COH, both on live and on homecoming (Virtue/Everlasting represent!). Here's a costume that I fell in love with that one of my RP collaborators uses: If you like that, then I've got something exciting to share with you. I've always loved superheroes and comics, and the roleplaying in COH inspired me to finally start creating stories inspired from the fun I've had with you all. So here's the beginning of a new comic book series: The Adventures of Omega Girl You may have seen Omega Gir

  32. To show you what I think of (most) of those criticisms of superhero costuming (and hopefully get this thread back on track), I'm posting my fire/ice blaster Grill N. Chill in his classic golden age costume: bright colors, fold-down boots, cape, exposed skin, and even things not mentioned like bold chest logo that is practically a bullseye for enemies to use, ridiculously big belt and ridiculously small identity-hiding mask. (Missing the overshorts though.) And that criticism of day-glow colors? Check out these power auras! Bad boys, pray you never see them in a darkened warehouse.

I wanted to have something visual where the claws would be hidden in the gloves and the Banded robotic gloves worked out nicely. I also wanted an excuse to use the samurai menpo mask (which should really be ported to non helmet options.)

  45. I feel that this is a direction that the HC dev team is taking. There have been a slew of changes that have a negative impact on the current while being said that "WHEN we do a balance pass on this set, then maybe we'll look at changing X". I don't like this. If you want to maximize your time and do sweeping changes only (getting away from cherry picking for example) you need to consider the amount of time it will take for you to get to that balance pass. If it's not breaking anything it is far, far better to keep the current balance consideration for things that are not negative changes and w

  46. I typically play on Torchbearer and whenever I have submitted a ticket for assistance, he is 'Johnny on the spot'. He's taken feedback about our Hami raids to the Dev team, fixed some bugged TFs (poor Katie), and has been all around helpful and proactive. We don't tend to submit tickets often, but whenever we do, GM Impervium is very prompt, courteous, and engaged in problem solving. I understand that many of the roles are filled with those volunteering their time, so I am appreciative of the assistance when it's needed. Thanks all.
