Do You Feel For Empathy Control?

Recommended Posts

Why isn't there an Empathy Control powerset? We will all feel better if this is added to the game.

 

Tier 1: Lingering Doubt: Ranged Single Target Immobilize: Suggest An Animation

 

Tier 2: Crippling Guilt: Single Target hold: You do an explain or yada yada yada animation and target hangs head in shame.

 

Tier 3: Lingering Doubts: Ranged AOE Immobilize: Suggest an Animation

 

Tier 4: Call Your Mother: Ranged AOE hold that causes enemies to enter the phone animation and call their mothers.

 

Tier 5: Your Father is Proud of You: AOE -acc and -perception as the enemies tear up.

 

Tier 6: Safe Space: PBAOE Phase Shift: Targets go to their safe spaces, where nobody can hurt them, and enter yoga sit Animation phase shifted.

 

Tier 7: Time to Rest:  Placeable Field power:  Enemies who enter the filed use the rest power. They gain endurance and regeneration quickly but are  unable to act.

 

Tier 8: Ego Boost: Toggle +acc: You do the thumbs up animation when activating toggle. 

 

Tier 9: Unrequited Love: Pet: Beautiful woman with PBAOE aura on her that causes foes around her to swoon and be disorriented. She does various animations such as turning away, slapping them, etc that do debuffs and damage.

 

I believe this powerset can be added mostly using existing emotes already in the game.

 

Please dear Homecoming Dev Team, you the have Control. Please have some Empathy.

Odd concept aside, I think a neat visual effect to differentiate the set would be a desaturation of color on the target or a saturation of color on allies or when buffing someone. It's subtle but different.

 

I actually had a character concept that did that exact thing although I couldn't create the effect well in-game. Overall idea obviously from Mr. Mime from Powerpuff girls.

oh, boy.

I don't even know where to start, but I hopefully know what not to even touch with a ten-foot pole (Yes, I have my 50 foot of rope, iron rations and 200 torches in my backpack.)

 

Okay.

So your Empathy Control set isn't about being Empathetic. It's about plaguing your opponents with feelings of empathy.

It looks like you are suggest a Gaslighting control powerset to me.

If someone posts a reply quoting me and I don't reply, they are most probably on ignore.

Some of them even know that I have them on ignore.

But that won't stop some of them from bullying and harassing people, because some of them love to do it.

It is who they are. There is a group of them that have banded together to do it. They think that it is acceptable.

Ignore is a tool to improve your gaming experience. Don't feel bad about using it.
