"Social Distancing" - Knockback Superteam starts 8 May 8pm EDT

Recommended Posts

What: Knockback themed Superteam that practices "Social Distancing" by knocking enemies far away!
Where: Excelsior - On the star in Nova Praetoria
When: Fridays at 8pm Eastern US (first meeting on 8 May)
Who: Brought to you by the Justice Superteamers (the folks behind the Justice TA, Traps, Radiation, Blades, Earth, Gun, Darkness, Time, Water, Sonic, and Nature Superteams). We're also currently running an Electric team on Sunday nights.
Why: FUN, Fortune, and glory!


The Justice Superteamers run many projects to leverage the power of stacked (de)buffs and explore common themes to accomplish things that a random group could not. Come join us on Excelsior for our Social Distancing themed Superteam. We want to harness the power of Knockback powers to keep people at least 6 (or 60) feet away! In addition to being socially relevant for many of us, it allows players to take and slot fun KB powers that are often shunned in normal teaming. Long time vets and new players are all invited as we focus on fun with other friendly players.

Power/Build Requirements:

  • Pretty loose with this one. You can use any build with access to several knockback/repel powers. These powers should be taken early, used often in combat, and slotted for at least 1 KB enh. Examples of sets with good KB/repel are:
    • Force Field
    • Storm
    • Energy Blast/Assault
    • Assault Rifle
    • Martial Combat
    • Peacebringer
  • Melee builds or builds that use "patches" that require the enemies to stay in one place should only be used if you know what you're getting into.
  • You must include Maneuvers in your build for team defense
  • The following are suggested, but if you can't fit them all in, not required:
    • Aid Other
    • Assault
    • Tactics
  • Other team-focused powers are great too: Veng, TP, and Resuscitate are always useful.
  • You're welcome to make use of your other build if you'd like to maintain a solo, PVP, or non project compliant build.

Miscellaneous Details:

  • Feel free to get into the social distancing theme with your costume too. Masks, gloves, and helmets are encouraged on this team.
  • Our first meeting will take place Friday, May 8, 2020 at 8pm EDT on the giant star in Nova Praetoria. Feel free to show up fresh from the tutorial (or even skip it).
  • We'll be coordinating the group through use of a global channel named "Justice Superteamers". Everyone participating on this team must join the channel. (/chan_join "Justice Superteamers"). We also have a Discord channel for out of game and voice communication.
  • We'll start in Praetoria where most heroes are self quarantining, but will eventually make ourselves vigilantes/rogues so we can enjoy what Paragon and the Rogue Isles have to offer.
  • We'll be focusing on PVE content (TFs, Contact Arcs, Tips, iTrials, the occasional newspaper/scanner, etc).
  • There is no limit on the number of people that can join us. This isn't going to be a fixed group of 8; the more, the merrier. Feel free to show up late, roll a 2nd alt, etc.
  • Super-Sidekick makes teaming incredibly easy. If you already have a character that fits the theme of this team, or won't be able to join us at the start of this team, don't worry; we'll accept you at any level, any time. Just note that if you're significantly beyond the rest of the team in terms of level, you should expect to exemplar down to the rest of the team most of the time.

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to post here or send a /t or email to @Perfect Square, @Hedgefund, or @EF in-game.

Great point, Shocktacular. We had previously discussed this on our Discord and weren't exactly sure how these would interact. We noted that, since Homecoming, Knockdown powers still function correctly on immobilized enemies and Mids shows that some Immobs apply negative KB and some don't.


We were going to see how it played out, but if any power completely nullifies KB, it will be discouraged during teaming sessions.

We've had two sessions so far and it's more fun and chaotic than I had hoped. Force Field ended up being a popular pick so we are perma softcapped as well. It's not too late to join us and we'll make sure to run content for everyone who wants to join, but we're looking to move out of Praetoria soon so I suggest rolling in Paragon if you're starting fresh.


We do have a fun base up and running. Feel free to visit it by using
