  1. More fun with its/it's.... In Television's one-off mission "Help Television" (the one where you are replacing a Fortunata with a double), near the end of the debriefing, it says, "Television is always there for it's friends." Should be its friends. In the mission briefing for Television's one-off mission "Help Television learn about the Malta Group," the second sentence references a show that "was really big in it's time." Should be its time. EDIT: Oh yeah, forgot to mention... the paragraphs definitely should be fixed on these as wel
  2. I also think FF getting some +DDR would be good. I do think they need something. And I don't think anyone is being serious in bringing up the cottage rule, but, just in case, it would not violate the cottage rule to add +DDR as a secondary effect on Force Field powers. The cottage rule explicitly allows for changes to a power's secondary effects so long as the primary effect is still more or less the same, and FF buffs would still primarily be Defense buffs, just with a little DDR to sweeten the pot.
  3. I assume that dialog was copy-and-pasted from the Tsoo version. And, there is a typo there also! Should be heroes, not Heros.
  4. If a modern City of Heroes game were being completely made from scratch today, it would probably either be a single-player action RPG with optional multiplayer, set a few years after the original CoH, telling the story of Battalion and the Coming Storm's arrival in a more modern game-format... or it would be a crappy Raid Shadow Legends-esque cash-grab app game with no real story. A single-player CoH would more easily accommodate some of the things people are asking for in this thread, like more destructible environments, player choices changing the game world, etc. It is not likel
  5. Another day, another post of grammar pedantry... In Television's story arc The TV Invasion, in one of the missions there's a clue, "A Fake Nemesis Memory record," that says it can trace the Nemesis attack back "to it's origin point." That should be its, not it's. (Additionally, and this may not be an error per se, but it would be more clear to call this clue "A memory record from a Fake Nemesis" or something, to clarify that while the Nemesis may have been fake, the memory record itself is not fake.) In the debriefing for Westin Phipps' one-off mission "Destroy school b
  6. Television is probably my favorite redside contact, but its mission briefings are rife with typos. Here are the ones I made note of: In The TV Report story arc, in the briefing for the mission "Watch more Television," faux Homer Simpson makes reference to "rampaging mobs or atomic mimes." In context, it is clear that what was meant was "rampaging mobs of atomic mimes." EDIT: Also, this text block needs proper paragraph breaks to make it more readable. Also in The TV Report, in the debriefing for "Get Viridian's signature," the gray-haired guy takes a minute "to quickly
  7. No, don't want voice-acting in cutscenes. Having some random dork try to make a scary voice for (for example) the Nictus talking to Romulus at the end of the ITF would just be dumb. Better to leave such things to the imagination. Additionally, the text in most cutscenes goes past faster than someone could read them at a normal conversational (or dramatic) pace. Try reading off the lines aloud yourself in a few cutscenes if you don't believe it. To make voice acting work, the devs would have to slow down many of the cutscenes by a substantial amount, which would be an impact on play
  8. Another its/it's... The description for the Katana ability Golden Dragonfly says that it "...can even knock a foe down to the ground and reduce it's Defense." Should be "its Defense." Or if you like singular they, "their Defense." (I actually would prefer to use their here rather than its, especially since this is technically a cone attack.) Also, and this is not an error, but it is a bit redundant to say "knock a foe down to the ground." Either say, "knock a foe down" or "knock a foe to the ground." The extra wordiness as written does not add any additional
  9. Yeah, also shouldn't he say "I need your help to get them," since, as I recall, you have to get both artifacts on this mission? Also, and this is a much more minor error, the "The" in front of Book of Binding and Dust of Chains should not be capitalized. Fully corrected sentence: "Midnight seized the Midnight Mansion and all the artifacts and sorcery the Midnighters had accumulated over the decades, including the Book of Binding and the Dust of Chains, and I need your help to get them."
  10. In the debriefing for the First Ward story arc mission Revenge: Served Chilled, Finale: My Enemy's Enemy, Master Midnight says that he'll "set to work at once studying it's pages...". Instead of it's pages, that should be its pages, because what is intended here is a possessive, not a contraction.
  11. In Cerulean's story arc, A Woman's Scorn, Part Two: The Tower and the Devil, when you talk to Diabolique on the roof of the Westerman Building, she says that we take orders from Cerulean like we're "his dotting pupil." That should be doting (i.e., excessively affectionate), not dotting (i.e., dot-drawing). Unless she means to say that he is teaching us pointillism, in which case we would indeed be dotting pupils.
  12. I have seen this error also on a saved costume for a Staff Fighting character. There seem to be several weapons (from the various weapon-based powersets) that will throw that error when loading from a saved costume file.
  13. In Noble Savage's mission, The Only Good Day Was Yesterday, Finale: The Girl That Got Away, in the task where you speak to Candlestick about the Awakened, the player's response at one point reads, "What? I'm hear to ask about the Awakened." That should be here, not hear.
  14. In Ghost Widow's Patron Pool story arc, in the mission where you fight the Longbow who have invaded GW's base, there's a Clue that refers to "...methods to make a spirit physically manifest, even against it's will." That should be "its will," not "it's will," of course. (It's means it is, which is not what is intended here; its is the correct possessive form of it.)
  15. In the Issue 27 Story Arc The Graveyard Shift, if you decide to investigate Hide Park, Jacob (the child-actor-turned-homeless-guy) at some point says, "PPD says it's for our safety. that's it very anonymous." (In the attached screenshot, the text in question is in the bottom paragraph.) Of course that should be a comma separating those clauses, not a period, and "that's it" should be "that it's". So, the sentence in question should read, "PPD says it's for our safety, that it's very anonymous." (Could also consider changing "very" to "totally" or "completely", though th
  16. In What Was Built Upon the Past, Part Three: At All Costs (Sister Solaris' part of the Dark Astoria arc), Sister Solaris says "Daedalus helped guide Marcus Valerius and the small fleet of ships out to sea. I've been tracking the progress but have had a terrible vision." That should be "tracking their progress". Or you could say "tracking the progress of the fleet but...". As written, it is technically grammatical but definitely non-standard usage.
  17. At -4, most if not all of the enemies in the zone would con gray, awarding no exp/inf for defeating them. Even the Lieutenants would be gray, I think. There would need to be a big pop-up warning saying "If you set your notoriety to -4, you will receive little to no experience for most missions" or something to that effect. Without the warning -- and probably even with the warning -- many people will not know why they are doing mission after mission and gaining no exp.
  18. While I do not have any connection to the organizers of this event (so I can't speak to their rules), I can say that Sprint does not count as a travel power as far as the game is concerned. I did an Ouroboros story arc with the "No Travel Powers" restriction set recently, and it did allow me to Sprint.
  19. Maybe I'm just weird, but I like to frequently change up which badge I have showing on my character at any given time. Some days I feel like a Dance Legend, other days perhaps a Happy Camper, still others I want to mark myself Already Dead. But it's cumbersome to use the Badges window when you have several hundred badges to scroll through and you want to set a particular badge, but can't remember if said badge is an "Achievement" or "Accomplishment" or something else (very annoying for days when I feel Strong & Pretty, and can't recall which category that falls under). Also these badg
  20. I mean, I guess it depends on what you mean by "viable". In theory, sure. The source code is out there; knock yourself out. I don't expect it will be quite that simple in practice though. Having the server's source code is one thing, having the expertise and internal content-development tools the original devs had at their disposal to change and improve upon it is quite another.
  21. Well the forums are back up, so I reckon that's a good sign.
  22. I will give it a shot! I confess I've been vendoring set recipes for stun, sleep, fear, etc., on the theory that people slot everything for damage, damage, and more damage.
  23. Help me understand what the issue is. If you are "playing 100% alone," why does it matter what level other people are? You say "I want to [...] not be level 20 when everyone else is lvl 45," but if you aren't grouping with anyone else, who cares what these other people do? In fact, them leveling up and leaving you behind means less lag for you in King's Row. If the story arcs are what you are really interested in, then just play them. If you don't like them, then don't. If exp is raised even more than it has been already, you will quickly run into the problem of leveling too fast for the
  24. Yeah, the Resistance has this weird, Clockwork Orange-esque slang thing going on. The more I interact with Resistance NPCs and story arcs, the more convinced I am that they are simply the Praetorian version of Primal Earth's Freakshow, although I don't believe this is explicitly stated by anyone in-game. Weird slang/jargon: check Costumes cobbled together out of mismatched techy bits: check Generally anarchist/"punk" mindset: check I vaguely remember one of the Praetorian story arcs involved the Resistance trying to blow up a hospital in order to make the sheeple open their peepe
