  1. Which is still the same people. There is no way anyone currently folding that is below them will surpass them without spinning up more hardware. We're all basically locked in to where we are at. EDIT: For example, to get into the 10th position you would currently have to earn more than 30 million points in one month...I'm only getting ~10 million a month and that won't change and I just got bumped out of the top 30. I've been folding since this started. EDIT 2: A different means of determining rank needs to used. Even just dividing points by WUs reduces the gaps. It actually shuffles the positions around quite a bit.
  2. Here's one. You call your butler to order you an enhancement upgrade kit.
  3. Personally, I really like the upgrade option. The worst is sitting there having to count out all individual types of enhancements you need, buying them...then dragging/dropping them all into place. Then of course if you happened to have leveled up to sat 28 and you hadn't upgraded your 25s to 30s at level 27 you get to sit through the combine screen crap for... every. single. enhancement. It wouldn't be so bad if the enhancement management screen wasn't a full screen window, but still. Some way to be able to maintain them in a popup non-modal dialog would be great...similar to the incarnate windows. Something else to think about. With that being said...it's even worse for me because I have to also do my wife's enh upgrading...she hates doing it. I just told her about the new upgrade option that's going into test and she was excited.
  4. You still have to go to vendors to fill slots without an enhancement when you level up. So they will still be needed.
  5. So it looks like the packet loss issues were happening during prime time hours. It does look like they cleared up quite a bit of delayed/missing animation issues with the recent patch too.
  6. Just noting that I was having issues on my MacbookPro late last year (I think after an OS update...not Catalina though) after I had successfully gotten it working. I haven't touched it until today because I don't use it to play normally since it's a work laptop, but I was trying to help my nephew get it working on his MB. I had also since updated MacOS to Catalina. In any case, I removed Island Rum and everything else. I downloaded the latest Island Rum, ran it, let it install Wine and download the game files and it worked just fine.
  7. Yeah, I'm not sure what's going on specifically, but I have noticed a lot of weirdness for the past couple months now and it was fine when I started playing last August. I also doubt it's anything to do with Internet connectivity, but wanted to at least throw it out there. I would imagine it's a combination of things and not just one thing outright. EDIT: While I was responding I was testing something. I ran the 32-bit client and tooled around for a little bit watching the network monitor and then ran the 64-bit client and did the same. There seems to be more packet loss from the 64-bit client which is interesting. The only downside is that it's starting to get into prime time I think (7pm central where I'm at) so this could really not have anything to do with it.
  8. I've been experiencing this issue with all sorts of ATs and powerset combos since around the holidays (x-mas). I finally found the slash command which would show you the network traffic... (/net_graph 1) and there is a lot of packets loss it seems (red spikes). My ping is sitting between 130 and 150 as well which is slightly high considering I don't think it was every that high during live and I was on cable internet back then, now I'm running gigabit fiber and I get over a gig on my uplo ad and between 700-900mbps generally down (other people on the LAN). Issues are animation drops, attacks not registering, stuttering, lag and sound drops. I thought it was just the holiday event and there just being a ton of people playing and it would resolve itself, but it really has not.
  9. Being able to use some actual gunslinger (not the Malta mob, think old west) pistol animations instead of the gun foo Matrix/Equilibrium style animations would be great.
  10. Also for dual pistols it would be nice to be able to select something other than bullet type sounds as some of the pistols are actually laser type pistols. Perhaps a new set would be better though. Dual energy pistols perhaps. A single pistol set would be nice too though.
  11. @mikemasterson So while the redownload downloaded everything again. There is no coh.app just a folder with all the binaries (which should not matter), but now nothing happens if I try and run the 32-bit or 64-bit client. It just shows "Launching homecoming" then goes back to "Ready to Play". ... bleh.
  12. @mikemasterson Quick update. Since I did not actually get a Wineskin popup like you did, I tried changing the path in Island Rum for Homecoming to the other EXEs and none of them worked. I deleted COH.app and Island Rum is now downloading the game client again. The 64-bit version is now available. So I'll let you know if this works once it's done downloading. EDIT: I never installed the 8/29 update which could be the difference here. I don't play on this laptop and my home computer runs Windows.
  13. @mikemasterson Thanks, I'll give it a shot. One thing to note and it could be related to the pathing I saw in your post, but HC Safe Mode started up just fine. I am on MacOS 10.14.3 Mojave so I should be able to run the 64-bit version on this thing. One thing at a time I guess. I'll report back here shortly.
  14. This was working on my Macbook Pro a month or so ago and I decided to login for a bit during lunch time at work...the Island Rum installer updated CoH and I now see an 64-bit option, but I cannot run it as it's greyed out and if I run the 32-bit version it will start but then throws an error. The build number on Island Rum is 091320191
  15. If it's completely optional I would have no issues with it.
  16. I could get behind this. Even without set bonuses it would make it worth sticking to TOs, DOs and SOs. Would even be useful for normal IOs. The combos would need to be slightly less powerful than set IOs though I think...or would they?. Would the cost of buying extra non-set enhancements be a comparable cost sink to IOs or should there be an inf fee when combining?
  17. I play all types of characters and I love knockback. When I'm playing meleers it doesn't bother me at all. I either run after them or wait for them to come back to me.
  18. Seriously, if I took a power called "Hurricane" and it didn't knock people around I would be very disappointed.
  19. No. Don't like this at all. And if I recall correctly isn't there already an out-of-combat boost to regen anyway? Or was that one of the things that always got shot down on live? It's been a minute :)
  20. Agree. It's one of the nice things this game never had. I'd even go as far as to say it's nice that it doesn't have audio chat for similar reasons. Nothing to screw with my immersion.
  21. So when this game came out multiple monitors wasn't very common and even in 2012 when it shutdown I only had 1 monitor. Fast forward to 2019...I have 4 monitors and my mouse now makes its way onto the other monitors while I'm in heavy battle and if I have to click an ability or click a new target I can't get to either and of course the game de-focuses if you click with any of the buttons. The cursor really only needs to be locked to the screen bounds when it's hidden. Sorry if this has been brought up already, but it's been bugging me since I start playing again back in August. The addition of the borderless full screen window mode option prompted me to post this.
  22. - Definitely not having to recreate characters again. Which I would assume would be the case being that this would all carry on as is in the event of being legitimized. - I would have no issues paying a subscription fee again, if it meant that new content would be created, story lines completed and incomplete features were finished. Otherwise I have no problem with the donation model. If this was to occur I'd like to see a multi-account plan since my wife and two kids play as well. - Absolutely no micro-transactions for Pay-2-Win nonsense. - A way to export my character data if I want to do so. - Potentially provide a way for players to look up their old characters from the old live data. It could be a website where one could search using names, servers, ATs, etc. to try and find their characters. From one character you could see the other characters made by the same person. I had over 30 characters on Infinity and cannot remember all of them. Setup in a way to hid all personally identifying information. Aside from that I am happy with the servers as they currently are.
