    Also: CRAFTING
    I maxed out myself on the science path until I can get level 31 (I'm at 300 science). I hate level requirements for getting higher levels of crafting.

    Here's my alternate costume.

    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:

    Super jump is literally faster than super speed because you can jump over everything, and not give a single fuck.
    But you cant stay in the air and you are still tied to the ground. Flight is the "best" because you can go literally anywhere but its also the most bland.

    Edited:

    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.

    Light speed is just super speed with a trail. (well is like +1m/s faster but still)

    Can we agree that tunneling is the worst power?

    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.

    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.

    On my tunneler I have a "nailed to the ground" upgrade that cancels travel powers and silences them for 30 seconds.

    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.

    Soldier for solid ranged DPS and AOE, and blade for melee DPS and ridiculous amounts of dodge.

    You get jack shit in character development skillwise, and you get less parts to play with to design your hero.

  19. Post #299
    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?

    299.99 USD to be exact. I had no idea they even did a lifetime subscription.

    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

    Lifetimer here, It doesn't. The highest character i got to was 27 before getting really bored. I don't regret spending the money though.

    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.

    I play it off and on every few months for a few weeks, game just doesn't have enough content.

    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.
