  1. I PL some of my lower toons, mostly defenders and controllers. It's just painful without joining large teams to raise them faster than pouring molasses in January. My farmer farms for infl for all my newbies. I start them all off with 3.5 mill infl. Controllers once they are at lvl 32 are fun to play but for me not before. I have taken one defender back on live to 50 with no PL or double XP (ah, the good old days when we worked to 20 to get a cape and 14 to fly). Today, I play for fun with no real uber toons. My farmer is vet level 45 slotted but I don't bother with any of my other toons.
  2. Doug Graves, interesting idea. I never thought of holding a toon at a certain level by turning off XP. I have a badge explorer alt that would be perfect for. That way he could collect badges and infl farm at the same time. Thanks.
  3. Hi, I'm Gary, and I'm an altoholic (altaholic?). I have 263 alts at the present time, after deleting around 50. Every one has a bio because I don't enjoy playing the game unless I know who I'm playing. My average level where I stop playing an alt is around 17 (yes, I track all my alts on a spreadsheet with graphs, what a nerd). A small part of the spreadsheet is shown below. Its actually handy for deciding an unused power combination for a new toon. Usually I choose who to play to suit whatever mood I'm in at the time and take them on up. I only have 8 50's, and only 30 or 40 that make it into the 30's. The number of 50's will go up somewhat because I've decided to have at least one 50 from each AT and I have 4 ATs to go. I'm not asking for a cure, I love the game and the way I play it suits me. I like to solo or do two or three person team ups. Big run and gun groups aren't fun for me. I'm just wondering how many other people out there spend as much time working on new toons as I do? Thanks for listening, and thanks in advance for sharing.
  4. The base always turns out at donation time, average window usually less than a couple of hours. I've only made the window twice and I try and desire to contribute every month. Solid servers for a recurring fee is good for me. Give us a means to make our donations automatic and many of us will sign up
  5. I have several as I'm sure we all do if we play long enough. My never break rule is no toon out of the gate without a biography. I have to know who I'm playing, even if its a throw away character created just to try new powers. They all deserve a story. Other things, when super jumping I always bounce along roof tops, monorails, etc..., never the road unless there is nothing there. I have rotating banter binds on some but not all, 75 on one in particular.
  6. I for one like the proposed changes. I am a casual gamer, mostly solo, light role player, altaholic, and played the original game from beta til sunset. I currently have about 100 alts, only 4 of which I've bothered to take to 50+. I've played the low level content (sub 22) through enough times to have exhausted all the different ways it can go. Like many, I now either DFB or use my multibox farmer (during offtimes) to PL my toons up to 22 or so to get SO's. I craft common IO's at 25 or 30 but rarely go the uber route on sets. For me, the game is fun when I'm making a new toon, playing with a new power combination (keep them coming!), and sometimes finding a new friend to play small teams with. Large teams on task forces or radio mish teams just feel like DFB clones to me, run and gun. The proposed changes will be a welcome change for me because it lets me do what I love, playing the game, rather than hanging around a store or crafting table. Thank you devs. And to all my fellow heroes I say, play the game in the way you most enjoy. I recommend writing a bio for all of your toons and play them the way you would like to read if they had a comic book, but that's me. The beauty of this game has always been the flexibility of play. Many games force you to PvP or whatever. COX is all about doing your own thing any way you want. Remember why you fell in love with this game in the first place. Then, invite new friends in and take them for a flight around our city. They will be hooked.
  7. My process is to enjoy the game to the max. My forays into PL'ing were very unsatisfying. What i love is to create a character that I love and then I love to play him. I spend a ton of time on his costume and bio. A toon without a bio is hollow and I won't play it long unless I'm just trying something new. Once I know his reason for being a hero then I play him that way. Some solo and some team. I have over 70 active toons currently. I play with the ones that match my mood that day. All of that is why this is the greatest game in the world to me.
