  1. Out of the blue; haven't been on in a while. Downloaded the new installer (I'm on windows 10), installed to a different directory (E:\Games\...) and ran it. It found my installed copy of CoH and copied it all. Awesome. Downloaded the Beta and it was fast, so maybe it also found or re-used stuff? It was a fast download. Everything went smoothly, and no problems encountered whatsoever. Additional PLUS: clicked links open default browser, not MS Edge (as Tequilla did for me). That's a nice change! Overall, very good job!
  2. The LFG queue has always been a bit wonky, even when it works. To my knowledge there is no way to see who is in queue. It would be a great addition one day, but I think there are so many things to fix before adding new bugs features.
  3. Sorry for such a late reply / bump, but I don't play the game much anymore. Anyway, I posted the command-line to get full sets of superiors here:
  4. Where's the vote option: RANDOM (which seems fitting for many of these "costumes")
  5. First of all, welcome back! Next, if you are only 1-slotting Aim (or Buildup), I like to throw in the Gaussian proc. It fires off almost every time due to the lack of recharge (it's a 1 ppm proc), so I usually put it in Aim. This way, I can alternate Aim and BU (Ionize, in Atomic's case) for consistent +dam; with the rare Aim+BU for a nuke or something. I like options. Since this thread and my original build post (which had more melee), I've since learned the "real power" behind /atomic for blasters: abusing the AoE Hold, Radioactive Cloud. Atomic is the
  6. Did you also know that if you let your mouse HOVER over the name of the event (e.g. Time's Arrow [Imperious] ) that it will pop up an information window, detailing various aspects of the event? Did you also know that you can get the Midnighter badge via the Mansion in Night Ward? And that mansion does NOT go to Cimeroa... Did you know that King's Row is the closest base-portal-drop-off to a tram (blue side)? Founders Falls is the closest ouro-portal-drop-off to a tram (blue side).
  7. Many times while I'm playing and forming a Task Force or other group event, there sometimes is a new (or newly-returned) player that may not know about the LFG tool, nor that tool's ability to move character across zones. For many veterans, we all know and love the LFG-TP "trick" - and it's only called a "trick" because not everyone knows about it. So, while walking through a very new player on how to get to Cimeroa (yes, they needed the badge, too); I remembered that I was going to write up a graphical guide and create a tiny url ( tinyurl.com/LFGtp ) so it might be easier to exp
  8. If I was going more for solo or small team play, I would totally have Moonbeam instead of the stun. Even if one doesn't proc it much, the 5-set bonus from Manticore is nice. I'll usually 5-manticore (including proc) and another proc, for a mix of POW and set bonus. I've also proc'd it out completely for massive damage. You are correct about it, of course! The poison/dark I have above is really my league toon, and I don't solo much at all with her. I'm still surprised how effective Torrent is. So undervalued by many, I think. It's a MASSIVE range (80' I believe) and it is up
  9. Looks like I am (so far) the lone Poison/Dark advocate! While I agree with @Hjarki about DP, Dark is also very good and here's why: Dark Blast is very proc'able, has a lot of CC powers to help keep you (and your team) alive. It is end-heavy (cones ain't cheap). POISON (what I take and why): Envenom and Weaken are your bread and butter for Poison; you'll spam them often. Alkaloid is a joke as a heal since it's single target, but I use it as a 6-set mule for Preventive Medicine. The 20% toxic resist is cute. Antidote is nice, a few slotting options (I us
  10. I have enjoyed my Time/DP defender. I made many similar picks as you, except I do NOT use Suppressive Fire, instead I went with Executioner's Shot as my proc'd heavy hitter. I do not quite have perma Hasten (2.6s off) or Chrono (5.02s off), but I usually have them on when in combat... If not, I'll survive for 5s (I hope). I also have no endurance issues, as I've slotted for it. Also, I only have used Intuition Radial for Alpha; and I went Degen for Interface. (Clarion Core, Void Radial, Support Core). I also do 99% of the time Incendiary the other 1% is when I rez a
  11. I'll put anything from a single level-50 IO recharge... to 4 slots (1 achille's + 3 undermined defenses for max end for recovery). I generally don't put a lot of rech., and often like to put the achilles' heel proc.

    Time vs Storm

    How do you figure? I mean, apart from Freezing Rain (8) and Steamy mist (10), one can put off Hurricane until later; the "signature" powers are Tornado (26) and Lightning Storm (32). Time gets Distortion Field (8) but has Time's Juncture (2) and Temporal Mending (1). I put off Temporal Selection (6) until late, similar with Hurricane. That's FOUR (4) solid powers. Granted, signature moves are often last, like storm, Farsight (18), Slowed Response (26), and Chrono Shift (32). Not to mention, if you need a hold, Time Stop is available at level 12! I would NEVER say t

    Time vs Storm

    I play both. A lot. I have to say, Time/DP is one of my most damaging toons. Feels like a blaster with armor, etc. Can solo the hell out of many things. Has so many buffs/debuffs, it's not funny. No worry for health or end, but recharge is paramount (come as close as possible to perma Chrono Shift). A lot of damage-proc potential in Time, but I skip the hold (3 procs possible) since my blast set is better. Definitely proc out Distortion Field and Slowed Response. Time/DP is more everything: damage, buff, debuff, cc, heal... My Storm/Dark Blast is very surviva
  14. @Sovera, I recently had an issue where zoning into Brickstown would crash. Then I had toons "stuck" in there, as when I tried logging in to them, it'd immediately crash. I went into the Tequila launcher and under Options, did a re-validate. I saw it download stage2d, stage3d, and some tex-filething. After that, no more crashing for Brickstown. Maybe re-validate your files and see if that helps any?
  15. HOLY CRAP! Do you know how OLD that makes my dudes? They're going to have to retire far earlier than expected... 😉 Also, we should use in-game time for TF ads... "Starting a Dr. Q TF (about 4 days)" or "Numina TF forming (about 2 days)" that'd be fun! "ApeMage speed run (approx. 12hrs+) forming in RWZ..."
