  1. I have been saying for a while now that Red Side needs some love and a major overhaul, and I mean visually as well. The Rogue Isles is too bleak and covered in trash and rubble at the moment to be somewhere people would want to hang out like they do at Atlas Park. Make The Rogue Isles somewhere people would want to hang out. I hope that this is the start of such an initiative.
  2. Every day on Excelsior I run a daily afternoon Mothership Raid double-feature in the Rikti Warzone. Invites start around 3pm EST (8pm GMT) and we typically go for two rounds, with a 5+ minute break between each round. My global is @Doctor Proteus but I rotate through my many characters every 3 Veteran Levels earned per character. I will announce what character I will be on in the excelsior-events channel on the Homecoming Discord 1 hour before invites go out. All levels are welcome. The raid may occasionally run late or be called off, pending changing circumstances. I will announce changes/problems in excelsior-events if possible. EDIT: I set the time for 3pm on the calander, but some people are telling me it is showing as 10am for them. This may be because the calendar is using my time-zone in the UK as the basis, but for the records it is meant to be 3pm in the USA. Please keep me informed if anything seems off. INVITES Anyone who wishes to attend should ask for an invite in the Rikti Warzone broadcast channel, so I can see we are in the same zone. Please ask in broadcast and do not send me a direct message. I cannot invite players to the league if they are members of the opposite faction unless we are in the same zone. I do not want to have to /who everyone while I am focusing on assembling and organizing the raid, and replying to direct messages can be a hassle, especially if there are many. If I can I run two raids a day so that anyone who did not make it into the first run at least has a chance to attend at least one raid if they choose to stick around for round 2. INSTRUCTIONS At the start of the raid during the Pylon phase, I will give out comprehensive instructions on what to do in full-caps in the Request Channel, so anyone new to Mothership Raids will have an idea on what to do and so I can give out bomb assignments. I use the Request Channel so that people can still use League Chat freely. Bomb Assignments will be sent out a second time at the last pylon for anyone who arrived late. Please make sure you have the Request Channel active in an visible chat window. You can check by clicking on a chat tab and going to edit, this will show what channels are active in that chat window. THE QUEUE I try to be as fair and impartial as possible to attendees. Anyone who leaves the zone or disconnects has about 4 minutes to return before their spot becomes available to anyone waiting in the zone. If the raid fills, any additional Players will be queued for entry into the raid in order of their arrival to the zone, to the best of my awareness. I cannot promise that I will always be able to keep track of everyone who comes and goes. Anyone who leaves the zone will be removed from the queue. AFK & LEECHING If you need to go AFK during the raid, please let me know. People tend to assume someone who has gone AFK un-announced is a leech. I and most raid attendees do not appreciate Leeching. A Leecher's spot is a spot that could be used by someone productive who may be waiting to get into the raid and most attendees can be very vocal to me about it. Anyone who needs to go AFK should let me know beforehand. TIME-ZONES I am from England and not running on EST. I am not intimately familiar with American time-zones nor will I be immediately aware of any changes to American time-zones. I apologise for any confusion this may cause if American time-zone shenanigans occur without my knowledge. When referencing the daily event, I typically take into account the fact I am on an American server, and consider myself a guest, so I try to use American time. For me the raid starts at 8pm in the evening, but I refer to the event as being in the afternoon based on the present time in the U.S.A. GO. HUNT. KILL RIKTI.
  3. I made Retro Sci-Fi Recluse, but alas, not only were Cape + Spider Backpack not an option, but I am unaware of a way to utilize the Crab-Spider backpack without being a sufficiently high level Arachnos Soldier.
  4. Not really a matter of preference, but one of efficiency and good design. Just because one person "prefers" having the kitchen in the attic but the pantry in the basement doesn't mean it's OK to design the house that way. Besides which, what you said about discovering things from earlier zones, you'll probably have out-levelled the content of that zone by the time you discover it. Remember, games are meant to be pleasant. People generally don't want to play games that frustrate, annoy or bore them by design.
  5. I am very much in favour of this. There is so much I want to say about my characters but there just isn't room, not to mention I also want to list my Main/Alts in the info panel of my characters. Please, please, please consider upgrading the number of allowed characters for character descriptions.
  6. I like the idea of recycling existing content for new results, and I suggested it a while back but for Power Pools, such as Martial Arts, Grenades and Side-Arm.
  7. Being sent somewhere from earlier in the game for one mission is fine. But when the entire arc is in another zone, that's just bad design. Villain/Red side arcs mostly take place in the zone the contact is in, sometimes with a mission or two involving a specific place that makes sense within the context of the setting, for example, it makes sense to go to Ghost Widow's tower on Mercy Island to face-off with Ghost Widow or retrieve something from her personal vaults. But the contact is in one zone, Independence Port for example, but they give you a contact arc which takes place entirely on Talos Island, there is a problem, and the player is just being made to jump through hoops pointlessly. The contacts in question and their arcs are very old, of course, they're just holdovers from the games beginnings when things were not as refined, but it would have been nice if they could have made things more efficient before the shut-down.
  8. I may be late in replying to this, but I actually think the story content is better on Villain side. it doesn't help that the Hero contacts often give the player story arcs that don't even happen in the zone the contact is in. Ultimately it's just due to remnants of the original game, which hasn't aged well compared to the more recent additions, including missions and general thought put into decision making.(like the lack thereof in deciding contacts would give out story arcs that take place in different zones entirely)
  9. I hope one day that The Rogue Isles/Red Side gets a big makeover to make it more aesthetically appealing, where holiday decoration will be warranted. It would probably make people want to play Villains and hang out in the Rogue Isles. I would recommend an overhaul of Mercy Island to give it a more central Atlas Park-like area around the Arachnos Administration building there, with the Lord Recluse globe statue from Recluses Victory in place of the Atlas Statue and the other four statues replaced with the ones of his four Lieutenants.
  10. Can we get the book shelves from The Spooky Mansion/Dr. Kane's House of Horror? They look really nice.
  11. I don't like having my time and efforts wasted. It's quite simple really. I don't expect this conversation to go beyond this.
  12. Having to restart again would probably turn me off the game for years.
  13. The devs of the game are the ones who mentioned it. I assume they intended to give them actual Clown related powers and attacks, like pies or something.
  14. They should do Clowns first, as the devs for CoH when it was live mentioned wanting to do Clown MM. 😎
