  1. I mean, Hawkeye could harm Superman. All he needs is a Kryptonite arrow. And to not be in a completely different universe made by a different publisher but still. ...Green Arrow on the other hand, he just needs the fancy arrows. I think some versions of him even keep a few around just in case.
  2. Pretty much this. While I like the idea, changing Stalkers to be it at this point would achieve little other than irritating every person who enjoys Stalkers as they are. It'd be better as a completely new AT, being as different as it is.
  3. My preference would also be for such a concept to have powers that work both in and out of the vehicle. Additionally to keep the vehicle relevent even when you're on foot, have some of the heavier powers have VFX that appear to fire from offscreen or above, to give the impression of the vehicle on remote control providing support while lighter powers fire from the character's handheld weapon or similar. Either that or just make the vehicle a controllable pet when you're not in it. Sky Raiders get their skiffs into office buildings, why can't we.
  4. Not true, they existed on live too. As far back as at least 2007, if Paragonwiki can be believed.
  5. From a few pages back, but I claimed this one. Thanks!
  6. Hopefully, with more time to look at it again, they'll also have time to implement something a little less harmful to people's enjoyment that still accomplishes whatever it was they were trying to achieve. To the devs, though: Thank you for listening.
  7. And has attracted almost universally negative feedback to boot. I very much hope they're just taking time to decide on another way to accomplish whatever mysterious and still entirely unexplained thing they were trying to achieve with this rather than hard commiting to it. Outside of PvP (where movement control matters a little more) there's literally no conceivable reason I can think of why this has to be changed other than some nebulous idea of consistency applied so thoroughly that what's actually fun to play isn't even being considered. And if it is really only PvP that's the reason this has to change? Please consider making this change only apply in PvP. Let me be very clear: this is a change that actively harms the gameplay experience of every player with the affected power sets. That alone should be reason to reconsider it, and that by all appearances it doesn't seem to be is very concerning. What's even more baffling is they gave the movement buff to the blaster version of Shinobi-Iri in the same patch they neutered its usefulness by having it no longer stack with movement powers. Why not just not give it the buff in the first place?
  8. So I'm looking for a name for a new fire scrapper and coming up blank. I found 'Everflame' in one of the lists posted a page or so back but that's been taken already. I'd like something along that line but I'm not coming up with anything. Anyone able to suggest something, maybe?
  9. When you say they don't show in any of your other powers, do you mean you're looking in the enhancement screen? Because set bonuses aren't enhancements, they won't show up in there. If you check combat attributes you should be able to find the 5% range and 7% accuracy buffs listed under the respective stats in there.
  10. I have to wonder at the logic behind making pool powers suppress primary/secondary powers, here. Especially the relatively small jump buff from Combat Jumping removing the much larger buff from Shinobi-Iri. Especially since so many people take combat jumping for the defense buff or to slot various IO procs in, that one in particular is going to annoy almost everyone wth Ninjitsu I'd bet. If nothing else, it should at least preserve whichever buff is larger. Was stacking Ninja Run and Shinobi-Iri really that overpowered that it needed nerfing though? I can see maybe in PvP specifically (I know the movement control in Gymnastics not suppressing with travel powers was a distinct advantage for some there and nerfing that I fully understand), but seriously do the devs just have a grudge against people getting around quickly without travel powers now? Cause as much as I doubt it's that simple, between this and the teleport powers and the passcode stuff it's really starting to feel like it. I too would really like an explanation of why this change was made.
  11. For a random powers AT to work there'd need to be some kind of logic applied to how it chooses the powers for it, to prevent the already mentioned awful unplayable combinations from happening. You'd need stuff like at least X powers must be damaging attacks of some kind, powers probably weighted toward what the chosen AT scales are better at, and specific things like if given Mastermind pets must also be given upgrade powers and if given something that builds combo points must also have something that spends combo points, etc etc. Done like that it could work but it'd be a lot more effort than it sounds like at first glance. A full random selection though just has too high a potential of producing completely unusable characters.
  12. Crey's Folly (5725.5 -21.0 1381.5) - The sloped surfaces at the edge of the water just end with visible holes to the north and south of this point.
  13. And the peasants rejoiced! Finally I'll be able to tell if the character list not loading is my internet dying or the game cause it wont be the game.
  14. Super pack is the more generic term for all three varieties of them. It was almost certainly the same bug, especially if you'd been opening a large number of them.
  15. That happens a lot to me as well, though the packs themselves refusing to open for up to 20 minutes at a time after the first batch is more common. It comes right in the end but it's infuriating standing there trying every few minutes to open packs and getting 'Please wait a moment' in the chat window like I haven't been waiting several minutes already. Honestly of late I'm wondering if the account server is on a seperate VM that just hasn't been given enough resources and is running extremely slowly at times. But that seems like something that would've been noticed long ago.
