    So the servers are pretty busy now I'm guessing? I originally made a character on virtue but couldn't really catch the PA folks due to timezones, and then on my second resub I made one on freedom and that was a bit better, but as I got into the middle levels I struggled to find a group to play with.

    There used to be an australian sg in the ancient times, but that was defunct before I ever played.

    also, if you own Going Rogue or are a subscriber or you purchase the system with Rewards points, you can actually change your dude's alignment starting at level 20.

    a hero can become a villain, and a villain can become a hero

    although inbetween them are two "grey" alignments, Vigilante and Rogue, which are heroes or villains respectively that can also travel to the other alignment's city and pal around with the other side some

    and they get unique missions that reflect their morality

    I should mention here that the Vigilante and Rogue mission texts own fuckin bones

    Especially some of the Vigilante ones, stone cold motherfuckers make Batman look like a pussy

    yeah the game is trying to tell me that my account type is free, but shouldn't I be something else since I paid for the game way back whenever?

    Huh, my account type is set as free despite me signing in with my account that has the CoV boxset linked to it. Which means I can't play any of my old characters as they are Controllers and for some reason that archetype is locked. Oh well, no CoH for me.

    @Kayne Red Robe

    no, all the usual archetypes are free

    you have to unlock it, but they give you free things to unlock them, so

    Is the unlocking of the Mastermind and Controller permanent? I'm guessing not since the reason behind the whole thing is server-load.

    If you pay to unlock them or unlock them with tokens they are unlocked forever and ever, unless there's some specific Unlock For Thirty Days option

    If you're actually subscribed you can join the penny arcade global chat (/chan_join Penny Arcade, I think the command is, or do it through the option in the chat window context menu.) If you're not either subbed or a decently long-time premium member you can't join global chats, though.

    it was the smallest on the list but
    Pluto was a planet and I'll never forget

    Awesome. I came up with a new idea for a Mastermind character and was worried about whether or not I should bother. :^:

    I guess this game doesn't cooperate with windows 7 DPI settings anymore? I had it at 150% because my computer is attached to a 50" but I'm seated like nine feet from the thing, so without that zoom I can't read text for shit

    But if I don't turn it to 100% the resolution, for lack of a better term, 'freaks the fuck out'

    That's... really lame!

    can someone catch me up on how the archetypes are now

    like, last time I played, masterminds were mediocre and stalkers were shit after they blew their Hide

    how are all the guys

    particularly, how are Masterminds in general,
    how do Stalkers, Brutes and Scrappers stack up against each other
    and how do Corruptors and Blasters compare

    I don't mean "well one has higher damage primaries," I mean how are they in terms of balance

    I think stalkers are still pretty weak, but I'm pretty sure they fixed the issues with masterminds. Most classes outside of like, defenders and the squids are pretty viable.

    You can buy more at the Paragon Market if you're so inclined.

    I bought City of Heroes on day 1, City of Villains pre-ordered and beta'd, Going Rogue... and, at minimum, four years of paid account time... probably closer to 5

    Somehow that only equates to five free character slots and few of the newer-ish costume sets unlocked

    At least you can sorta-kinda have capes at level 1 now.

    Still trying to think about what I really want to play.

  • Options
    DJ EebsDJ Eebs Moderator, Administrator admin
    yeah, a lot of the costume sets were pay-only even before the game went free-to-play

    and I think through some of the rewards in the incarnate system (which is VIP only) you can unlock certain costume things for level 1 characters, like capes and such. I think.

    TWO

    A
    VERY SMALL NUMBER

    despite the fact that I have previously bought the game, had an account for over a year, I still only get two global slots

    it's not a deal breaker but it's disappointing

    you can have shoulder capes and short gay capes for free

    cool things cost money

    it is disappointing, but it's pretty standard for free-to-play mmos to limit the character slots for non-subscribers

    it just sucks with a game like this where you want to just keep making more and more new characters

    That's understandable as robots or any high-tech armor character are quite sweet.

    it helps that a lot of the robot parts

    parts that USED to be useable without paying for them in the store, like the clockwork stuff

    cost money

    so pfft no more robos

    the clockwork stuff is free if you bought going rogue 8-)
