  1. Red-side? I am SO in! Is there a Discord I need to be on? When's next?
  2. Related bug: Hardcase, story arc "Breaking the Streak," mission 3 "Defeat Luckless" lead me to the same door as the "interior pawn shop" map from the St. Martial zone event, while the zone event was in progress, meaning that the mission couldn't be started without first clearing the zone event. I don't think this is the only mission with this problem, either. There's a list of random mission doors in St. Martial, that's used by lots of missions, and nobody thought to take the zone event mission door off of the list. (This bug has existed since the zone event was created, back during issue 23.)
  3. With the circuit powers, where only one target gets the full effect, is there a way to determine which target that is? Or is it random?
  4. I've been running my beasts mastermind pretty heavily the last few days, and I didn't notice any weirdness? What did I not notice?
  5. I voted for the "glow up" to existing enemy groups because there's one particular across-the-board buff to most enemy groups that seems like a no-brainer to me, and like it wouldn't be all that hard: Within a faction, there should be a lot fewer enemy types "dropping out" as you level up. The Circle of Thorns would be more challenging, and more fun, if they continued to spawn Life Mages and Ruin Mages all the way to level 50. (Not to mention how much easier they get when Earth Thorn Casters drop out!) Paragon Police would be a lot more challenging if they continued to spawn SWAT Equalizers and SWAT Ghosts all the way to 50. It makes no sense at all that all level 41+ Crey mobs are power armor tanks.
  6. There was a patch to the main Homecoming branch (not the test patch, the main one) today that seems to have been just to turn off the snowy ground in Atlas Park. Why would they do that any time before March? It was nice.
  7. As someone who hasn't been on my Demons/Thermal lately, I should double-check, but I think you're wrong about Demons being primarily ranged. Demonlings have a very short attack chain and depend on their claw attacks for about a third of their already pitiful dps, if I remember right, and the Ember Demon's main damage comes not from his thrown fireball but from his breath weapon, and cones do better fired from medium to close range. Not only that, but the Ember Demon's +resist aura and relatively short radius AoE heal are calibrated around the assumption that all six demons will be moving more or less together. So I think they should continue to do what the Ninjas do: open from range, then move together to melee. Similarly, we all cry about the Arsonist rushing to melee range, but if he uses that breath-weapon cone attack at maximum range, it's going to hit only one target most of the time, which is a heck of a nerf. I'd rather see him even slightly up-armored (say, some smash/lethal resist) than see him set to prefer-ranged. But nitpicks aside, you've definitely got the right idea here.
  8. Is the Winter Lord trial the most efficient way to farm Candy Canes? Does it have diminishing rewards on Candy Canes?
  9. I find this question unpleasant to contemplate, but ... How few players? HC is down to just a bit over 4k players at peak concurrency and it's already starting to feel too small to support 4.5 servers. With full server consolidation, maybe I could stand it as low as 1,000 peak concurrency, but honestly, even that's a bit low to find teams during off-peak hours. How few sides? I would be perfectly fine with only having one side ... if it weren't the existing blue-side solo content, which uniformly sucks [expletive deleted]. I'm not inherently villainous or mercenary -- I just hate having every other mission be four zones away from where I just was, hunting for obscure spawns, or both. Also, right now, there are maps like Boomtown and Crey's Folly (and arguably Eden) that just plain no longer have any reason to exist, haven't had any reason to exist since somewhere around issue 5. (I can't shake the suspicion that, given enough time, all three of those zones would have gotten New Faultine style makeovers.) Fewer modes? As long as we're keeping the existing game mechanics, then as far as I'm concerned, open-world PvP could and should go away. It makes zero sense to fight someone in a zone a mile on a side when most combat moves root the attacker and the target moves at 60 mi/hr. And I haven't been inside a single AE mission since relaunch. On the other hand, I'm also starting to get a little low on content I'm not bored with again already, which is what AE was meant to fix, so maybe in the long run I would miss it. How few archetypes? I feel like I could make a pretty strong case for merging Scrappers and Brutes, and maybe even Tankers. I feel like I could make somewhat of a case for merging both Kheldian ATs into a single AT with multiple powersets and both Arachnos ATs the same way. It wouldn't break my heart if they got rid of Dominators, although I'm sure some would complain. I could imagine a more-balanced AT about halfway between a Defender and a Corrupter replacing both of them. On the other hand ... why would you? Supporting extra ATs is the least programmer-intensive part of the game.
  10. And at least parts of Steel Canyon. I didn't check any other hero zones. I did check Mercy, PO, Cap, Shark, & St.M and none of them had so much as a single turning leaf. I get that this would be a labor-intensive change. (I'm assuming the windows weren't because there are global "lighted vs unlighted" window objects that respond to the sky setting?) Is there any way to outsource purely-cosmetic zone editing to a larger group of volunteers? With only a couple of map editors, I get why you'd concentrate your efforts in the areas that 80% of the players use. And Eris forfend that I complain about free stuff. I've just always wanted four seasonal variation maps for all of the outdoor maps ever since I first started, back around issue 4. Is the answer still "too labor-intensive to maintain"?
  11. This thread's gonna need updating or replacing pretty soon. We're almost out.
  12. Okay, I had the same problem and I just figured out what was wrong. The Flames of Prometheus Conversion badge doesn't show up until you unlock your Alpha slot.
