Yeah, I wish leveling was a bit faster, so I could get to these cooler, higher levels of crafting.
Making things is fun.
My character I've had the most fun on:
Its an MMO. You arent supposed to level up super fast.
Super jump is as fast as light speed in movement speed. It's cool.
Well technically it's better because vertical movement.
It's slow, you cant charge it, cant talk to NPCs, cant fight, there is a small time where even though you are underground you can still be attacked, you have to dig first which takes a few seconds, you cant go up unless there is a ramp, and it cant change colors.
But oh so cool.
Super Jumping / Rocket Boots are better than Super Speed and Acrobatics in the distance traveled (it's both faster and covers buildings easily), but for instances it's shit because you keep hitting the ceiling, and you have to learn where to land or else you might trigger hostility from a mob, and they can attack from a mile away for some reason after you trigger it. [A good tactic for jumpers is to learn how to land on telephone lines - they count as solid ground and are out of NPC hostility trigger ranges usually.]
The only Travel Power with much of a combat advantage (considering the lock-on system) is Teleport; it knocks off lock-ons, can be used to trick players and so forth. If none of your powers have gotten any upgrades to counter Travel Powers, Teleporters will be a bitch to fight in PVP.
I really like having the the drones as pets. In combat mode, they are good for drawing attention away and for taking out smaller enemies, but as an almost exclusively melee character, the knockback beam is awful for me. On the other side however, healing mode is great. They heal me quickly and, combined the the medical nanites, I usually never go too far down on health. They also heal each other because of the area healing around me. This is especially useful in fights against very difficult enemies because if I get low on health, I can bring up the energy shield and back off while they heal me back up to health. The medical nanites, while slow and don't heal a lot are a great fallback system if the drones get taken down. The one major drawback though is that the things draw unbelievable attention, and sometimes they just go stupid and will either get stuck around a corner or behind an object, or just a little too far away, and they won't heal me. So if I'm traveling over a large distance, I have to dispel them or else they'll lag behind and end up drawing everything I pass to come and murder me.
lol i spent way more time making the characters than playing
his backstory is that his arms were taken from him during the cold war and his name is arms race lolz
What's the best silver archetype, do you guys think?
Soldier for solid ranged DPS and AOE, and blade for melee DPS and ridiculous amounts of dodge.
I used to pay for this game... What are the restrictions for F2P exactly?
How much less?
By the looks of reading around, it seems that when I don't pay. I have to stick with one powerset throughout the game?
Pfft well fuck that. I remember when I'd use my Minigun with roomsweeper. Damn good combo..
I wonder if my characters are still there...
Pfft. Looks like I'm not getting back into this anytime soon.. Sadly I can't afford it.
for anyone who is lazy.
why is this not in the OP?
its in the public folder
Regardless, its fixed now.
I got bored of this after a few hours. Half of the content is pay only and I can't buy a lifetime subscription anymore.
I almost want to get a lifetime subscription.
The thing is, that's a shitload of money for a game.
Nice to know you will never have to stop being a gold member because you haven't paid that month or whatever, but is it really worth that much money?
[Edit]: but then again... if you are serious about this game, and would consider buying it monthly... at 14.99 a month, by aprox 20 months of solid gold member, you've already paid the life subsciption fee, while only having a year and a bit's worth of gold membership
Couldn't foresee this game having the kind of lasting appeal to warrant such a cost.
Sometimes i get an idea of a fun character to make and powersets to use, end up making it and get bored before level 9. I would have rather gone to CoH but they don't have the lifetime option and you can only pay monthly (AFAIK).
It was either Champions or DCO. Don't know if i made the right choice. At least won't have to worry about paying again if i ever decide to go back again.
DCO gets boring really quick. three travel powers and everyone picks flight. Not to mention everyone looks like superman or the joker.
CoX doesn't have a lifetime option. Even though I really wish it did, might be the one game I would be willing to do it for. The mission creator gave me endless hours of fun when it first came out, still does when I go back every now and again.
None of my friends ever feel like playing this game no matter how much I pester them. I'm thinking about making a Steam group so we can all get together.
How does Champions Online (Facepunch) sound?
Also, I added the Free/Paid chart and a protips section to the OP. I'm taking suggestions.
Here are some interesting characters I've seen.
Joined the steam group and I'd like to join the super group too if thats cool Nohj, sent a PM.
Same. Why the hell not. I'm going to pay 15 dollars to play for one month, and see what goes on from there. Game brings me back. I fucking LOVE the PvP.
