  1. You're absolutely right that it did! And I forgot to add them into the post! But no need to fear. I have corrected my mistake and have added them into the announcement post! Thank you for reminding me. And have a great holiday season!
  2. Hi everyone! First of all, as always, I thoroughly enjoy all of the content you guys are creating! We really enjoy playing through all of them and seeing all the creative stories you guys come up with. Having said that, we've selected some more story arcs for Dev's Choice that we really enjoyed! The author(s) will receive 1,000 Reward Merits and a Golden Title. I will be in contact with you shortly regarding your rewards! Please keep in mind if you have previously submitted an arc it is still a potential Dev's contender, we have not yet been able to review them all and are working on an active list. We will continue to update you on selected arcs, so check back often! Any previously awarded "Dev's Choice" arcs, will be moved to "Hall of Fame". After testing the current selection, be sure to filter for these to checkout some other great arcs!

  10. I've recently taken to Illusion/Storm on a controller, and have been enjoying it MUCH more than I originally thought. So, I suggest giving storm secondary a shot. It really is like having two primary power sets.
  11. GM Cyclone had so much love and humour, you couldn't help but be happy around him. His happiness was contagious, and it was a real privilege to work beside him helping this community we love so much. Requiescant in pace amici mei (Rest in peace my friend)
  12. Thank you for telling us your story! It's great to be a part of someone's origin story like this! Many of the impacts someone has in this world are left unknown to them. Thank you for sharing how we have impacted you. It means the world to us.
  13. That would be awesome! Especially if given pet controls, like a temporary Mastermind. That might be a little too far into the over powered spectrum, but still is a cool thought!
  14. I don't remember that, but it would make sense. Your clear times would improve as the confused enemies are helping you kill things. I do wonder if the reduced exp is similar to that when using lore pets. Since it does follow the same logic - you aren't actually the one doing the killing. And if that is true, I also wonder if the same exp debuff holds true for regular pets (not mastermind pets). I'll have to do some testing on this for sure! Personally, I prefer Seeds of Confusion. And putting in the Coercive Persuasion proc to help things along is amazingly helpful.
  15. Hey folks, remember to keep things civil. Debates are natural when it comes to suggestions for game updates, but we need to take care and treat folks with respect.
