    I seem to recall it needing almost 1gb last time I did, and that was nearly a year ago.

    I'll just let it do its thing. I've got plenty of other things to do anyway.

    Hamiraids usually take about an hour and a half once they get going. NewTF will likely take us a while as apparently there are "Tricks" to winning it and I don't think any of us wanted to be spoilered before they hit live, so we'll have to figure them out. Which will take a bit.

    No ballpark estimate? I'd love to get in on the NewTF, but I am an east coaster with a full time job, so there are some fairly strict limitations to how late I can go for.

    It will take 17 hours. Ballpark.

    It's a brand new TF that none of us have run, requires something weird to beat and so far as I know we've all been avoiding spoilers for. The official forums exist I am not your search engine.

    Ok, I thought maybe someone might have run it in test or heard some talk of how long it was, but if this is how it's going to be then fuck it.

    I ran it on test and it was a giant clusterfuck and unwinable by my team, than the devs went in and changed it making it even harder. Later was it revealed that there was some kind of crazy "trick" to beating it and that you couldn't know what those tricks where because the graphical hints as to what you needed to do weren't on test.

    For tube, here. Screenshots of all the dialogue in the new villain sf. Which, for the record, is pretty goddamn lame.

    Actual spoilers ahead.
    So, the first two missions are actually pretty great. Barracuda has been approached by a Mr. Mueller to break something out of the time capsule in City Hall in Paragon. The next mission reveals that they are computer codes for Reichsman's tomb underneath Boomtown. There's a really nifty comic-booky cutscene wherein Reichsman whoops the shit out of you, and you have to beat your way out of a Fifth Column base, it's actually fun.

    After these two missions, just quit the team. It's all downhill from there.

    Next is "Go beat up reichsman" only he's impossible to beat up. Literally, everything you do to him leaves him Unaffected. So you end up hightailing it out of the level. Thanks to this game hating to spawn certain things, this map is laggy as shit.

    Then you go off to find out how he got so holyshit overpowered, and you raid another fifth column base on Axis World. You learn that Reichsman has a machine that lets him drain the power of alternate dimension Reichsmen (Reichsmans?) and channel into himself. So you lie to Recluse in order to lure his Lieutenants into the machine so you can swipe some power from each of them so you'll be strong enough to take out Reichsman. This involves one map, where you find each Patron, drag their asses to the machine, then they realize what you're doing and they fight back, so you have to beat each up, then go hunting down the next one. This is dull.

    Then comes Reichsman. I'll even extra spoiler this.
    So. He's got 226k HP. For reference, Hamidon has just over 65k (though stronger resists). As you're fighting him, he keeps calling on ambushes that quickly flood the room. There's around 50 of them. No joke.

    You've all got 4 passives, one from each Patron, that up your damage and such, and each AT gets a special temp power. Doms get an AoE hold that doesn't have a target cap, Corrs get a tornado-esque power that kills everything that is held that it hits, Stalkers get a power that lets them sneak into these laser-guarded back rooms and hit special killall switches which kill everything in the room but Reichsman (up to four times), Crabs get a +res(end drain) power to deal with Reichsman's aura, and in the stupidest kicker ever, only Masterminds get the power that can break through his Unstoppable. An Unstoppable during which he likes to heal himself for 22k HP. We had a team of four crabs, two brutes, a /kin and a /sonic, so that we didn't bring a stalker or dom for dealing with the ambushes worked out. Any other pug will be made to suffer.

    Even WITH all that, it took around half an hour to whittle down his hp. We talked about Pax and movies and how annoyed we were.

    Oh also the "break his unstoppable" power is broken and doesn't actually work right now.

    Then we got 20 merits. And the Arbiter badge. So.
