  1. This is the most probable explanation (with spelling correction made). Our Homecoming team is probably bound to secrecy about this and the current negotiations until whatever is hammered out with NCSoft is official.
  2. Ha! Take that, Homecoming Servers, LLC ... I was able to donate to you finally! 🙂 Thank you all for everything you do. I look forward to the future.
  3. I love it! Battle and Brew! I've been there too! Who's up for an Atlanta-area M&G in 2020 (after Holidays)? Early Spring? Sooner?
  4. Cool. I know 3 others. Would you all be open to a M&G at some metro-Atlanta location? It could be a dinner, bowling, Dave and Busters, whatever ... but it starts with Hello! Excelsior server - Squid Vicious is my Kheldian main. I live in Lawrenceville. Let's plan something soon. 🙂
  5. Thanks for this. Interesting. So KD is really just KB-lite and level differences affect magnitude of the KB. That's a reasonable explanation. Descriptions are inconsistent still. You've glossed right over point 2. above, however. I should be able to suppress or enhance the magnitude of the KB on ANY power that actually KBs with KB enhancement IO sets. All the powers (with KB) in Street Fighting power set accept KB enhancements EXCEPT Sweeping Cross. That's not a bug?
  6. Windows 7 breathed new life into older gaming boxes and was a fantastic upgrade over WinXP. Windows 8.x.x was terrible. Windows 10 was and still is the best version of Windows we've seen in years.
  7. Fellow SuperHeroes and Villains - Are there enough of us playing in Southeast US (near Atlanta, GA) to coordinate a fan-driven, somewhat regular meet-up of players of CoX? It would sure be nice to start meeting folks in person and inspire the Homecoming staff to hold their own M&Gs all over eventually. 🙂 Cheers!~
  8. Team - 1. The description narrative for Tanker power: Sweeping Cross in the Street Justice: Secondary power set reads: "At combo level 3, Sweeping Cross will also have a chance to knock down the affected targets. But the 'detailed info' screen (in the Enhancement Management screen) shows this power has a "40% chance of a 0.67 magnitude Knockback (KB) on target". So which behavior is intended? The power actually KBs the target. I think it should knock DOWN the target per description and the enh detailed information screen should be updated to reflect description and requested behavior. 2. Also - whether you decide it should be KB or KD, there is no way to change current KB behavior to Knockdown (KD) (via the Sudden Acceleration enh, etc.) AND there's no way to enhance the KB characteristic via KB enhancements. 3. Similarly, the Tanker Secondary power Spinning Strike indicates KD in description; but indicates KB in detailed info. Power currently has varying percentage chance to KB the target (depending on combo level). I think it should knock DOWN the target per description and the enh detailed information screen should be updated to reflect description and requested behavior. 4. Finally, while the description for the Tanker Secondary power Heavy Blow is consistent with the detailed info screen information, if changes are made to make powers in 1- 3 above to KD instead of KB, Heavy Blow should be changed to reflect KD behavior as well. Thanks.

  10. I never said it was. I just predicted it was next. 😘
  11. If the server community can come together and adjust to the original Hami design, that would be awesome. There are some good leaders among us! And there are also some folks who may underestimate the importance of clear communication when leading. I had no idea this was a thing, but apparently it was. Can we please agree to reserve the REQUEST chat for raid leaders, for example? This way the rest of us can better follow what our leaders are trying to do. Kkthx The zone changes are just the beginning of a series of ‘corrections’ in store for us on the HC servers, peeps. Up next, the ‘enterbasefromcode’ ‘fix’ for example. You heard it here first! There are other ‘adjustments’ coming too, I’ll bet. (E.G. I don’t think we’ve seen the end of tweaking AE exp or rewards 😎) My theory is: We’re close to an announcement regarding NCSoft negotiations and our HC dev friends will need to ‘fix’ a few more things before big brother begins really observing us and our ‘rogue’ servers in earnest. Got to show our overlords that we haven’t ‘strayed’ too far from the original client as it existed before sunset, I’ll wager. 😇
  12. Last night's movie was called, "Revenge of the Hami" ... at least for the Excelsior: Hive 2 peeps. 😛 I very much appreciated FoxFyre and a few more of the Hive 1 peeps who (after pwning their Jello) zoned over to Hive 2 to assist. Unfortunately, too many folks were unfamiliar with the old-school mechanics, and jumped ship. Plus, there were never really any focus fire leads established through which to target (this is essential it seems to me). We were on the verge of something good, though and were beginning to push past the second bloom of Mitos and just DPSing Hami down, but it just wasn't enough. 😑
  13. Any lag I experienced on Excelsior Hamidon raids was always resolved by turning graphics settings down to minimum before the shift to the 64-bit client. After the shift to 64-bit, graphic setting adjustments during the Hami-farm seemed unnecessary.
  14. For the crowd already possessing tricked out, expensively-equipped enhancements, looking for a new challenge, you bet! These are the Classic Wow purists who love their sandbox. For those who are legitimately trying to earn merits via Hami each night, these heroes may now be potentially shut out of a raid because of a few vocal purists. Who cares if the Zerg isn’t how Hami was intended to be taken out? Apparently not the original devs - who clearly underestimated the power that IO sets and bonuses brought to this classic raid. I’m not disputing the merit of learning how to take him down the original, Mito-clearing way. I’m disputing the actual reasoning behind the timing of ‘fixing’ the population cap bug.
