    I read that post and it was like, yeah it's cool and all, but it also provides zero news about the stuff people are actually curious about

    That new launcher would be nice, but it doesn't look like it supports any other servers? Lame if true

    There are other private servers, and the other launchers that are currently used allow you to swap between them freely by just putting in a URL

    IMO, they seem to be positioning themselves as the official, sanctioned server(s) - or laying the groundwork for that, at least.

    Yup, and I have a feeling that Ncsoft is unwilling to be associated with a product that allows you to connect to a pro-nazi server

    Most people should be, really

    Whatever the x-chan alt-right clusterfuck server was, IIRC

    Added: Mostly my point is that there's no reason for Homecoming to make their own launcher that lets you launch *anybody's* private server, and a lot of reasons to avoid that

    Yeah, and I think that kinda sucks tbh
    Not every server is the damn chan server, there's stuff like Sanctuary and Rebirth which are trying to build on i24

    Sure, but also, NCSoft. Also also, unless you're playing on multiple servers (which I imagine is a vanishingly small % of the playerbase) you just use that server's launcher and it makes no difference to you.

    Ah, Thunderspy. Which they recently touted as 'the premier City of Heroes single player experience' and honestly didn't realise what a self burn that was until later.

    Oh, okay. I didn't know there was a server for a community like that. Let it stand as a trap to lure them away from the other servers.

    Nothing I'm seeing here suggests that Homecoming'd go after and try to kill the other servers.

    Hopefully Homecoming and NCsoft take no action to shut down other servers, but it's absolutely prudent to consider that a possibility. However I don't feel the new launcher is a sign of things either way, and probably not that detrimental to other servers.

    I don't really see that as a problem if HC becomes officially recognized.

    Which wouldn't stop the lawyers from making the goal easier to achieve later if they so desired. There is literally no downside to requiring that HC lock out other servers from their launcher. It isn't even a trade off since HC could be found to be breaking copyright and trademark laws if NC gave a shit.

    We are talking about the same NCSoft right, the one that tried to Dick Dastardly forge a man's signature to tender his resignation while he was in space? I've never really gotten the impression they care about the concept of PR, especially PR involving western phenomenon/things only westerners care about.

    That's valid, NCSOFT has generally acted like a trash fire whenever possible

    Hopefully the Homecoming team displays an above average awareness of their own PR presence and are willing to protect it

    Knocking out the last of the Praetorians I needed for Portal Jockey, and I was struck by something. Praetorian Infernal's really got the short end of the stick, hasn't he? He's not involved in any big plots, he doesn't show up in any incarnate trials, I don't think he even has an updated model. He's just the same argh ragh demon guy he's been since launch.

    So on stuff. Kinda just doing alts to see what sticks, decided to go full meta and do Titan Weapons/Bio Scrapper. Tried TW like 5 times already on Brutes, liking it more on Scrapper. Also my costume is great:
    w06fbutfluc9.png
    rwxmm8lad8fn.png
    I may have taken a little bit of inspiration of a Smite character. Deal with Bio is that the theme seems strict, but you can get around it. Tried a Blood themed costume first:
    1elweflv1kx9.png
    But got bored easily, wasn't too inspiring. So, made a new one and changed the name. In Homecoming you get A LOT of name changes, so if you like how a toon plays but don't like the concept, can always change it.

    On stuff, TW is TW. Momentum is there, as always. Bio is not only a bunch of offensive bonuses and a -Res aura, but it has several clicky powers that feel fun to use. Kinda just doing Task Forces with double XP until 32, I'm at 29 already.

    Bio's pretty neat. I have a spine/bio with minimal armor to pretty good effect. Added on Dark Mastery to become a cone-based lifeform.

    This coming back got me going on some heavy nostalgia from when I was in college and got out my old CCG boxes. I totally forgot I had handful of the CoH CCG game. Anyone else play this or buy cards? I never had anyone to play with - plus I only have 20 some cards that I am not sure even make a playable deck.

    Decided to play my Poison Defender today, figured hey, I'll hop into a 47 PI mission team, why not, should be fun.

    Spent most of the mission trying to hit ... anything before all the enemies died because there was a vet blaster chaining novas and judgments constantly mob group to mob group.

    Then I remembered why I fucking hate 45+ content lol.

    I honestly wonder why tricked out 50s play in PI mission teams.

    My Poison/DP Defender is a lot of fun. Debuffs like whoa and even though DP is kinda poopy, which Chem rounds it's adding to debuffs and I have good PBAoE stuff going on, so.

    The last time I have played CoX with a DP/Martial Blaster the nuke Hail of Bullets was bugged on the Blaster side and would do only a fraction of the damge, not sure if Defenders run into the same bug.

    DP needs procs, lots of procs, the do even more for Defenders as for Blasters

    Don't worry, I'm good with procs. Despite the 95% hit check there, yours looks like it's got pretty low accuracy potentially with 6 procs and no accuracy buffs.
