    You guys ought to go for more gimmick on your Joes super group and rock out with no passives. If you are playing as a unit then you can probably get by without them.

    Greetings, Heroes!

    There has been an outcry for a change in retcon pricing, so I wanted to take a few minutes to express why we specifically haven’t reduced the costs. In a nutshell, it all comes down to the economy.

    We’ve been analyzing the overall economy of the game. The huge challenge here is that we’ve only been up for 17 days and we needed a reasonable amount of time to pull post-launch, Live Shard data on global resource flow. This then means we have to work with ratios of these numbers and address the relationship of those economic ratios between synergistic and disparate systems. As with any economic model, it’s far more complex than you would first imagine. So, during the past couple of weeks we’ve been working on tuning the entire economy of the game, but we haven’t pushed any changes into the live environment.

    Why didn’t we just drop the price of retcon while we figured this out? The concern was that we’d then have to change the pricing back upward after the economy changes were made, and this would only make players mad. So we’ve worked hard and fast and now have solid data and solutions to present.

    The concerns that we simply weren’t giving out enough resources to meet the requirements of certain areas of the game were confirmed. We’re attacking this on multiple fronts and are pushing a new economy model to internal QA test tonight and (if all goes well) onto our Public Test Shard this weekend.

    So, what’s changing?

    We’re increasing the number of white upgrade drops in the world by a substantial amount – close to double of what you’re seeing now. We’re also flattening out the curve on resources gained for selling upgrades to stores, meaning that you’ll get a lot more for white primaries, a little less at the highest end (blues and purples). This equates to distributing about the same overall potential resources while skewing gains to the lower end. We had originally considered just simply increasing the amount of resources you earned from selling all items to “fix” the economy. However, this would have broken crafting – hence the shifting of primary and secondary upgrade values that maintain a net balance of total resources you have coming in from selling upgrades.

    We’re also increasing the amount of resources you get for defeating all enemies. This means not only will you naturally get more for doing missions, but you’ll also get more by helping others on their missions or by sweeping the streets. We’re also increasing the resources you get for mission rewards specifically.

    The retcon pricing curve is going to be much gentler so that players can undo more decisions at any time. It’s important to note that although we’re tuning the overall costing model of retcon during this phase, a substantial retcon will still have a high price. The heroic, thematic nature of the game doesn't support letting players constantly change their fundamental character concept. But at the same time we want to make it possible for them to completely retcon their character if it’s their goal.

    These economy changes will greatly improve the ability for players to retcon their characters, as well as address some longer-term issues we saw on the horizon.

    Finally, we’ll be issuing a free retcon for all heroes when the economy changes go Live since it will take a little time for the effects of the new economy to allow players to build up a retcon bankroll.

    Remember, we’re pushing the economy change to the Public Test Realm this weekend, so sign up and help us test!

    I like this game. I want to play this game. But if it refuses to run above 25 fps I'm not going to resub when my 30 days is up.

    I bought a new card. Once I get the correct power cable for it (so I can install it) perhaps that will fix it. I hope. Or I will cry.

    I have a 512 mb 9600GT. I know it's not exactly a top of the range card, but shit, it should be able to get more than 25 fps. :/

    After i spend 100G on a partial respec to go back 8 steps they decide the economy is out of whack. Not to mention the 30g i spent on the bait and switch that was the unity power armor plans. Why the heck do vendors show one item, but when you buy them the stats are worse?

    Det-Cord (Detcord?)
    Danger Close
    Back Blast
    Blast-wave
    Broadside

    Here is the planned build to 20, I dunno how well it'll do.

    Hello people! I see you have found my work on the Millenia Rangers video! Clearly I underestimated the superheroic resourcefulness that some of you have. That or Youtubes' search function.

    Thanks for all the positive feedback, I'm hoping that the end result will be something really special.

    Providing the end result isn't a horrible trainwreck resulting in me having a breakdown and hiding under a rock for a few weeks while gibbering 'Xanadu isn't a colour!' over and over again, I might be interested in doing a P.A Joe movie if you're all running with that gig. Maybe there could be a Ultra Fighting Team Millenia Ranger/P.A Joe crossover! THINK OF THE RATINGS!

    Anyway, yeah, thanks for taking an interest. If you enjoyed what you saw, keep your eyes peeled this weekend for the finished version. In the meantime, any comments or criticism is very much appreciated.

    It seems like the past few mornings that the server has gone down slightly later and late. It would certainly be interesting if this was their plan and that downtime would slowly cycle around the clock. It would definitely be an answer to it always being down when some people play. Though, having to plan not to play for a few days due to downtime would suck.

    I wouldn't have a problem with them cycling downtime among the two or three least populated blocks of time on the server, but I don't think they have announced any plans to do that. They did post that they were moving the downtime to better accommodate overseas payers, but I am not sure how well received that is yet.
