City of Heroes is back from the dead! You will want the Sweet Tea launcher from http://files.thunderspygaming.net/sweet-tea/ to start. (Now if you're concerned about unknown software, you can submit this to any malware registry and it will come back clean. Security certificate is paid for but taking time.Also the game will NOT finish loading if you have an instance of CoH already running. ) And while that's getting set up you can watch a video that makes ALL gamers look good! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ECMnAaa83Jk...In the meantime, I'm your OP and you can call me Shill. (You will anyway so why not own it?) I play mostly on the Thunderspy server and know the most about it. (Don't worry, there are plenty of choices in the next post.) But we are also alerting other servers about this thread in the hopes that they can give themselves fair representation as well.And finally for those that don't know the game already, City of Heroes is an MMO about Superheroes/ Supervillains you create set in a modern city.
Next up is choosing a private server. Note that Sweet Tea comes pre loaded with many of these but you will want the sites for account creation instructions.All of the servers on this list get along with, and help each other.Thunderspy https://www.thunderspygaming.net/Rebirth https://play.cityofheroesrebirth.com/We Have Cake https://wehavecake.net/Sanctuary http://sanctuary.host/index.phpUnity https://cityofheroesunity.com/portal/public/Also check out the new community website at https://cohmmunity.com/cohmmunity/index.php/en/
Then there's these guys just to offer a full selection. Directly descended from the folks that kept the game hidden with lies, deceit, and gas-lighting for 6 years. And it will come as no surprise they don't get along with or help other servers.Homecoming https://forums.homecomingservers.com/Ask them about "the talks" for a laugh. Pic is from November 2019.
And we have an event coming up on Thunderspy tomorrow night.Moaning's Mayhem Mondays!This event is intended to help both new players and folks new to "redside" (playing as a villain) get a feel for it while being able to ask a server veteran about the game and server.The event starts at 10 pm EST on 6/21. My character Moaning Desire has 6 Mayhem missions earned across 6 zones and will form a team with those interested. Note that this means I can only take 7 other folks with me at any particular time. But If folks drop, then of course I can add someone else as we go along.Mayhem missions seem to start out as a timed bank robbery, but you can add extra time by completing extra tasks called "side missions" within the Mayhem mission, beating up cops, and sowing general destruction like blowing up cars parked on the street. Actually you can blow up most things on the street!So the loose plan is during each mayhem we will get the exploration badge on each map, do all of the side missions, complete the bank robbery and beat down the hero that tries to stop us while blowing up stuff to our heart's content.

Whew! It looks like a LOT of work went into that! Check it out as you like but don't forget the event on Thunderspy tonight!>>346026
homecoming servers have been down for over 12 hours. might be a good time to try and recruit some people
Well there's a whole selection of small servers to choose from. And every one has it's own unique charm. So why not make a character or 2 while HC is down?Now I'm biased but Thunderspy will excel here. With an expanded color pallet (From 160, to under 64,000!), parts ported from several NPC factions, and an ever-growing list of CUSTOM COSTUME PARTS, you've never had so many choices!And yes >>346553We have back weapons now too!So come on over to Thunderspy and hit the random button a few times. You won't be sorry!
>>346176Anon I appreciate all that work you did on the thread, but I have no idea what any of it means.take my bump though. goodluck
>>346859Ok I can explain it quickly enough. The Cake server decided to open up a shard that uses i25 code (What HC uses), instead of the i24 code they had been using on their other shards. And in the course of this they ported over ALL of they changes they had previously done over a time frame of approximately 18 months.And THAT resulted in a truly impressive wall of text.
>>346862nice blog fag
>>346010does homecoming have the most active player base or is it thunderspy
>>347051At just this time moment, seeing as HC has been offline for about 18 hours, it's Thunderspy.
Thunderspy has just turned on triple XP!
For Homecoming players looking for a City of Heroes fix, just check the OP >>346010and download the launcher. Then while that's doing it's thing, make an account at one or more of the servers in the 2nd post >>346011(Folks signing up for Cake will need to do so on their discord and wait for a human to help you. Sadly Sanctuary/ Ascension is down at this time without a known date to come back.)Once you have your account and the launcher has set you up, just launch the game and log in to play!If you need tech support, the Thunderspy discord is the best place to go.
So he'd be a Merc/Poison Mastermind, right?
Man. Normally the trolls don't have this much free time. I wonder what..oh yeah.
>>347332Normally a thread with 30 posts has more than 8 IPs, yet here we are
should i get into this game again?every time i play, no one puts actual effort into heir characters.shit costumes.no bio.no theme.lame.
>>347574That's a nice outfit! Looks REALLY good with the limited color pallet.But if YOU want to control how OTHERS play? Look I'm sorry but I'm the wrong person to ask. Best I can tell ya is maybe HC (if they can keep their servers up after their planned downgrades) as it's the most authoritarian. Otherwise your best option is to start a server of your own, which is doable, and somehow convince others to meet YOUR standards.Like I said, the outfit is very nice. Who knew jackboots came in two-tone?
Thunderspy put out a patch and here are the notes.General:* Removed Player affecting CC mods from Personal Story Arc powers, since they couldn't be used on players. In the event they could, you have been nerfed for bug abusing, I guess.* Removed some unused power code* Fixed a server crashing exploitClient:* Fix remaining FX -> animal bone substitutions, so that there's no more instances of FX rendering towards the 0,0,0 coordinates, like Intangibility* The /custom_window_toggle command no longer requires an access levelLFG:* All players and zones are shown regardless of alignment, as long as the players allow LFG searchesPvP:* Removed Suppression from Defender's Psychic, Sonic, Archery, and Water Blast that I had previously missedNOTE: Epic powers, Epic AT powers, Pet powers, Phase powers, Pool, and Melee powers remain suppressedMaps:Echo: Dark Astoria:* Re-opened the map to villains and removed the entrance police dronesAccolades:* Cut Invention Worktable to 1800 seconds recharge from 3600* Cut Crey Pistol/Immobilizer from 1500 to 320 secondsPrimalist:* Fixed the heals and Hunter's Howl to correctly work with Nature's Boon instead of it always being appliedMastermind - Knights:* Fix missing Titan Weapon on the T3 petTwilight Grasp:* Changed to no longer use a pseudopet* Desdemona now uses the MM version, since she is clearly an MM* Removed Pako's nerf to the Romulus Nictus, allowing the Twilight Grasp heal to target pets once again
Quick reminder that Thunderspy has another custom costume pack releasing "soon".
Of course, I remember when this was new on Thunderspy.
>>348550Looks like shit and only usable with its own stuff. Too different from cohs style.
>>348550>>348461The "robotic" stuff doesn't even really look robotic either, more like slabs of metal welded together with no internal machinery or circuitry.
>>349268>>349291>Sounds of coping intensify.I'm sorry you're offended at Thunderspy getting more options to play with. I can see how that would interfere with having fun on another server like HC that never seems to get any updates.Fun Fact: OBH often streams when he's creating new costume parts. He walks you right through his process so anyone that wanted could learn. In addition he often answers questions on the topic on the Thunderspy discord. So you could in fact design stuff with "internal machinery or cicuitry" if you wanted to put in time and effort.
>>349768>doesn't defend anything except "we have new stuff!"just adding stuff with no plan whatsoever doesn't make it good. If someone says they're adding robotic stuff I expect it to look robotic, not just shinier freakshow garbage.
[Yawns] Optional stuff is optional.Don't like it? Don't use it.But sour grapes over HC not getting it is a far worse look.But it's the weekend and I'm hearing of a lot of fun stuff planned! See you there!
In the meantime, City of Heroes is back! Check out the first 2 posts in the thread to learn how to play for free.
>hypes up new stuff as the best thing ever>someone critiques it as not being the best thing ever>it's optional >y-you don't have to use it
I'd rather play marvel heroes then this pos game. Sadly though marvel heroes is gone forever and I will never get to play as punisher ever again :(
>>349268>Looks like shit and only usable with its own stuff. Too different from cohs style.If you can elaborate on your critique I'd love to hear it. It's fairly easy to change stuff and I'd like to try to keep things as close to the CoH style as possible. I don't get much critique if at all, so I'm interested in anything constructive.>>349291>The "robotic" stuff doesn't even really look robotic either, more like slabs of metal welded together with no internal machinery or circuitry.Could you provide examples of robotics that you feel would be a better fit? I was aiming for a different kind of look and feel for some parts. Not everything in the pack is strictly related to robots either.
>>350370This is something that looks like it'd blend in with City of heroes, while also still looking unique. Note how the plating looks like it's actually designed to be covering up the wiring and mechanical functions, while also welded together in an elaborate way so it's still capable of movement without damaging itself. Compared it now to this >>348550 which is just solid pieces of metal with rivets drilled in and no space for actual machinery inside.
>>350378So are you referring more to the texture or the modeling itself, or both? I'm speaking more about the chest and hips too, since I did feel that something was a bit off with them.
>>350370Based OBH!Another Thunderspy feature. Responsive devs that listen to players.
>>350388The model itself looks very jarring.
>>350392I see. I was trying to go for hard edges and slopes (I names the parts Ironclad), kind of like an Iron Giant kind of feel but I think I understand where you're coming from. I'll review some more reference and see if I can come up with something better.
Just a quick aside from OP. Not meant to detract from costuming discussion.OP is a player and not a dev. If you have a question that would need a dev from a server to answer and for some reason don't want to be on discord, Please ask. For example "Hey OP I would like to give feedback on the costumes you just posted to the person creating them." and I can see what I can do. Thank you.Please carry on.
>>350399it would work better if they looked like they were properly connected with more than just a narrow tube, slightly more detailed with a bit of texture work to give off the illusion of overlaid metal, and a bit less of 'solid slab of metal'
>>350407I agree. I think my biggest weakness is that I'm a bit overly ambitious and promise way too many costumes to the point where I burn out. These are the last few pieces I'm making to complete the set and part of me just wants to it over with, the other part feels that the players have waited long enough and I should push it out as fast as possible. This ends up with me rushing the last couple of parts and the quality suffers for it.CoH is pretty tricky to deal with when making parts too, in that you have to account for making sure other parts actually fit and connect so people can mix and match. It certainly adds some limits and hurdles that I have to jump through. Pretty much each joint has to be equal to or bigger than than the connecting joint (lower arms to upper arms for instance), otherwise you're left with large holes in the model. I think I'll take a step back with the Ironclad parts, finish the smaller bits that I have left, release what I've made so far, and just come back to the rest once I analyze what I need to do to make it look better for a later patch. Thanks for the feedback.
>>350413Thank you for actually listening. Homecoming never would've let me say anything involving stuff like this.
>>350415Well, it's certainly disheartening to see someone call your effort shit but assuming you're the same person I initially replied to I'm glad you elaborated when I asked. Critique is surprisingly difficult to come by even when I ask for it, so being able to get an unfiltered viewpoint definitely helps.
Based, all I have to say.
Niggers, all I 'ave to say.Just don't like em.
Tomorrow night on 6/28 at 10pm EST (Sorry. Earliest my work allows.) I will try Mayhem Madness again. This event is aimed at both new players and players who normally don't play villains. To participate, just create a villain and meet Moaning Desire by the Trainer in Port Oaks at the appointed time. I have 6 Mayhems lined up across 6 zones. Hope to see you there!https://archive.paragonwiki.com/wiki/Mayhem_Mission
>info dumps>Trashing rival serversMan I like playing on thunderspy but these threads are just weird feeling and not very fun. Is this what discord is like?
>>350961Nah the discord is just shitposting, screenshots, character design and development stuff. Don't know who makes these threads but it's like a boring info dump.
>>351014it's someone named Absent Friend. Not really sure what his goal is to just overwhelm everyone with spammy info dumps.
Give solo builds pls thx
>>351085Scrapper/Tank/Stalker anything. Brute is good too.
>>351094wait how is scrapper good for soloing if it dies in 2 hits?
>>351119learn to build so you don't die
>>350961The infodump is on Cake's behalf, not TS's, yeah HC will always be our eternal rivals, I'd say it's rent-free but have you seen their server costs?
>>351085>>351094I will put in a request on the builds section of the Thunderspy discord. Please note that they may be specific to Thunderspy. I can put requests in elsewhere, except HC, as needed or desired.>>350961>>351014>>351072Ok yeah the info dumps got out of control pretty quick and that's on me. The story is one of good intentions. THIS time I wanted to give other small servers a fair amount of attention instead of JUST Thunderspy. Starting with Rebirth and Cake to keep it manageable. Cake put out their patch and AFTER a couple of posts I discovered the download link to the entire thing. At that point I felt committed to see it through. Not how I envisioned spending my morning.In hindsight that was a mistake and if I had noticed it earlier I would have just said "Cake opened an i25 shard called New Dawn and here's there's a link to the full document in their patch notes section of their discord."Now the stated intention of these threads is to inform folks that City of Heroes is back and available and further to boost the smaller servers by providing news and updates etc.Speaking of updates and how frequently you can expect some info dumps like >>347766Thunderspy updates the most often. Sometimes hitting an update a week. Rebirth has committed to quarterly updates and I expect them to have more patch notes than an update from Thunderspy. Cake I have no clear idea of how often they put out patches, but I would not expect another 20 post walls of text from them ever again. THAT was a one-time deal I should have done a better job avoiding.
>>351119You don't get dropped that easy. Even with my Stalker it's pretty smooth sailing, and remember that killing your enemy fast is a valid defensive strategy both in game and in real life.
>>351094Request has been passed along! (Apologies but build planning is not one of my better areas personally.)Later on this week I hope to post another installment of the Super Group origin we've had going for several threads now. Will this one make any more sense? I promise nothing! :)
>>351119Scrappers have the same powers as both tank classes, just slightly lesser caps and scaling. They are perfectly sturdy, with IOs anything with a remotely defensive set will be made robust enough to stand through most +4/x8s.
>>351253Until the thunder spic devs decided that they hate anyone being able to tank
>>351314There's nothing wrong with tanking as anything on Thunderspy though? Unless you're a Necro MM who liked the really buggy forcemove AoE taunt the Tier 2 minions had, Brutes are unchanged which means they're fine but they have no AE farm to be relevant for, Scrappers have a better Regen that I'm actually personally playing as a wannabe tank spec with Dark Melee, Tankers have a ton of unique sets and they're working out some added utility for them to make them more relevant against the superior damage of Brutes. EATs are pretty strong across the board as well.
>>351319Your devs are going to nerf all melle archtypes to make other ones more poplar
>>351324If there are any nerfs occurring it's reversions to changes they made in previous patches, one of their big balance tenants is not to change anything to be weaker than it was on Live CoH. None of the melee ATs are even popular besides Brute either, which is almost entirely untouched entirely because it's such a naturally popular class that they have no need to adjust it.
Good morning everyone! Another fun week in Paragon City and the Rogue Isles awaits! Just wanted to get in a reminder that tonight I'm having an event for folks new to the game or new to playing a villain as mentioned in >>350746Hope lots o fun is had!
>>346013>Directly descended from the folks that kept the game hidden with lies, deceit, and gas-lighting for 6 years. And it will come as no surprise they don't get along with or help other servers.based dabbing on those fags. they applaud the community while acting like faggots
>>351439i would like to play on thunderspy more. when are the busy times on the server
>>350746is it easy to change alignment in thunderspy?
>>351443Afternoon US time, especially on the weekends.>>351445It's not hard, you just do tips and the cooldown is just a few hours I think.
>>351452>It's not hard, you just do tips and the cooldown is just a few hours I think.have you looked into having a null the gull like homecoming? it actually is very helpful for things like alignment change or having speed buffs not affect you
>>351445You do five tip missions, wait 4 hours do 5 more tip missions. Then you get an alignment mission and swap.
>>351473We have the original Null who still does his usual functions, it just doesn't completely invalidate tip missions, which are just a bit more fleshed-out than the usual ones and are a shame to toss to the wayside entirely. A streamlined system with lesser cooldowns seems like an ideal middleground.
Hey its me, thunderspy dev.I'm nerfing everything.
>>351473A downside of how HC handled Null was it decimated the redside population there. To the point where any LFG requests are just assumed to be blueside unless otherwise stated.
>>351679i flip between redside and blueside. having the option to quickly change alignments and other things cant hurt
>>351698fuck off no one asked
>>351679Realistically speaking though, I don't think these servers have the population to support two full fledged sides. I'd rather have a workaround like Null the Gull that ends up making a lopsided population with one side that feels like it has a decent pop and the other being barren than have both sides feeling sparse
>>351809The only content that necessitates anything larger than a standard group is already cross-faction, besides the mostly-defunct Hamidon raids (which have been attempted more by redside than blue, ironically).
this game is pure kino. Shame I keep getting filtered over and over again by actually building my character.>have ARPG loot grind excelsheet autism>have 1 built fire farming toon>use it to help level and make money for all my other toons>end up with like 15 level 50s this way>have no idea how gear/enhancements work>only advice plebbit tier community gives on homecoming is to spend time in the hero builderi even scammed the market by hoarding winter event packs and selling them for 5x purchasing price. I have literal billions of inf, how do i at least get 1 character built? Where do i even start to shape my build? strengths/weaknesses, power skills, rotations, etc
>>351892>fire farming>AE>toon>homecomingJust kill yourself my man.
>>351892>Play the game wrong>Doesn't know what the fuck to doYou did this to yourself.
>>351892OP here and as I've said, builds are far from my best area, but honestly it sounds like you can afford to experiment. I can give some basic proc advice like Performance Shifter in Stamina. In Health you put Preventative medicine, Numina's, and Panacea. And in at least 1 power that takes defense sets (you want 5) Luck of the Gambler, Kismet, and Karma.That's about where I am just now in builds. Throughout live I was on SOs. But for ideas, just go to a peaceful merit vendor and look through the sets. You could also look at the lead folks in raids and ask them build questions as well.
>>351892It really depends on the AT and powerset. common goals of building are-Defense softcaps-Recharge-Bonus Damagenot in any particular order as it varies based on what you're playing
How is necromancy/dark miasma on COXG?
>>352327Pretty cool. Check out the new stuff though in character creation.
>>352327They buffed Necromancy with a really cool aura effect that has a chance to raise things you kill as extra temporary minions, as a sort of constant trickling-in Gang War, thus incentivizing them to move quickly through levels and make their own "death ball" of acquired minions. Dark Miasma is largely unchanged, but still a very potent powerset with Twilight Grasp's area-wide -RES.
>>352336Is there a good builder or sheet to see good combos? Already finished my 50 mm
>>352355For enhancements? There's the MIDS program for building CoH characters but it's a little unpolished and the layout for all the changed TS powersets hasn't been updated in a while. Base MIDS will still give you an 80-100% accurate roadmap depending on your spec though, easier build-mapping and sharing is definitely something the servers should all look into.
>>352320On most servers your characters can be from 4' to 8' tall. And that's pretty cool! On Thunderspy you can be from 6 inches to 12 feet tall!
>>352355This will be helpful to know in planning builds.
>>352759I cannot more highly recommend making a minimum sized character. Do it. Do it fucking now. Max size is interesting but doesnt really feel that much more different than the old max (despite them being considerably bigger, pic related is new max, old max, standard height, 1 foot and six inches). Minimum height, on the other hand, is a complete change in perspective. I'll be dumping some images in a bit.
>>353224You're forced to notice the little details when youre so low on the ground. Like how the safe doors in mayhem missions actually have a considerable gap around the bottom that you wouldn't notice at regular height.
>>353234Enemies actually aim down at you also. I guess with they were coded to adjust height already (otherwise everyone would be aiming over a 4ft character's head, or at the dick of an 8ft one) but I never noticed they did that until it was readily apparent.
>>353235>the snake is so big haha>haha wouldnt it be funny if the snake put me in its mouth and swallowed me whole>what do you think that would feel like haha
What are some fun stalker primary powers?
>>353781Shut up Meka.
>>353781I say go with the classics. Ninja Blade.
What causes the weird black flicker I see in the game? I stopped playing because of it and I see it happen on streams but no one seems to talk about it.
Why's NO DC showing up on the top left of my screen?
>>353941>>353958I know this is real and I've seen it on multiple servers.
>>353980Sounds like your graphic cards are dying
>>353981It only happened on CoH. Played tons of other games since and no odd issues. You can find videos on youtube of it happening.
>>353981>>353985Here there's one at about 5 minutes and 20 secondshttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x3Ht0K0EZxc&t=318s
>>353990I looked at it twice and couldn't see anything odd. Could be something specific to your setup? Only thing I can recommend are the basics. Update video drivers, run disk cleanup, and defrag.
>>354110The ui seems to flicker for a split second. It's more obvious if you slow the playback.
>>354119I'll let Senpai know then and see if he has an idea. But I should note that it would probably be quicker to go to the Thunderspy discord's Help and Support section.In other news, Cake put out a patch today!Introducing Stone Melee Scrappers and Stone Melee Stalkers!QoL fixes: - Fixed several powers for Templar War Child so they will now accept sets. - Super Reflexes Practiced Brawler will now toggle on correctly. - AE missions will now reward boosted XP. Dev Choice missions will reward normal world XP. - Missions can only be requested to be marked Dev Choice for normal XP by the mission creator. Want yours to not be farmable, ask Nomadon or Purr for more information!
And when Thunderspy adjusted the height sliders, they also adjusted the female chest sliders as well. Now if you are a member of the "Flat is Justice" crowd, you can represent!
>>353974you tried to use one of those shader files, so you have an nvidia thing trying to read a file that isn't there or something. you can deletete the "nvdrssel.bin" file from "C:\ProgramData\NVIDIA Corporation\Drs"
>>354578That did it, thanks anon
>>354503And it also goes in the other direction.
4th of July holiday weekend in the US. Stay safe out there and stay hydrated!
The Story continues from last thread!Sally woke up to Frank smiling at her from across the bed. She returned his smile and said "Good morning.""And a good morning to you. " He lazily replied. "Do you have anything important scheduled this morning?""Nothing time sensitive.." she said as she leaned in closer. "I'm free to help with anything that .. pops up.. if we don't get interrupted." with a lecherous grin on her face."Mary took the truck somewhere earlier, so I think we're clear.." He said as he planted a kiss on her lips. She responded by throwing off the covers and embracing him tightly.Then the truck skidded to a stop outside and the horn went off a couple of times. "Hey guys! I'm sorry but I need your help for something important out here!"Sally was frustrated as she untangled herself from Frank and said "To be continued mister." and they threw on some clothes quickly and headed outside to an astonishing sight.Mary was dressed like a cross between someone in a Jane Fonda workout video and an 80's porn star in a bright pink thong leotard with an equally bright green sports bra drawing attention to her ample chest. Matching green legwarmers completed the ensemble that left little to the imagination.Sally said "Well THAT's a different look for you hun." and Frank could only nod in agreement.Mary smiled widely and said "Thank you." And did a quick spin to show off the whole outfit. "Just came today along with some other stuff I had Mo load in the back of the truck." (Mo was the owner of the 7-11). "Speaking of, here's the weird twist you know to expect by now, I can't touch the stuff loaded in the back. So I need you 2 to take these boxes inside and address them according to instructions I've already texted to you silently. Shouldn't take long." she said while still smiling.
"Alright hun." Sally said. "I just wish you could have waited a bit is all.""Sorry about that. But this is rather vital to our future plans." Said Mary while still smiling.Frank spoke up. "Future plans eh? Who do we know in the Rogue Isles?"Mary just couldn't stop grinning today it seemed." Oh they'll introduce themselves at the proper time. No worries there. Oh and Frank, if you could be a dear and mail these off this afternoon at some point, that would be awesome. I have to go crash now." and she headed off to her room. Leaving them to their task.
i hope inf gets easier to get later im broke
>>355250It DOES get easier later IF you can play a character to level 35+. (Which for various reasons, not everyone will do. And that's ok.) Just 1 such character can be a sugar momma for the rest of your account.Other options include turning off xp for a bit or joining a level 50 team for the recipe drops. (A lvl 50 Acc IO recipe goes for over 100K at the vendor.) Hope that helps!
>>355250few people will outright send you some start cash if you say you're new
>>355250Some people will powerlevel you to 50 and give you everything so you never need to actually play and you'll get bored.
Happy 4th of July everyone! Please be safe out there and enjoy the holiday!
Expected patch today on Thunderspy to port some NPC parts.Also we have and event to day starting at 5pm EST that will also repeat tomorrow.
>literal nazi server
Redpill me on warshade and peacebringer, are they fun at 50?
>>356244no they're op and boring
Triple XP on Thunderspy!
>>356264Why? They kinda suck
>>356244OP here. I'm afraid the Epic ArcheTypes are not a good area for me either. The folks I see playing Khelds seem to enjoy them. But the best way to find out is to just do it. I mean Triple xp has GOT to be a good time to try right?
>>356244Personally, every time I play my peacebringer I wish I was playing my warshade. Thunderspy did a lot to make them more viable, and I think they really did need it.
>>356244Well in general, the +dmg per enemy hit AoE (Sunless Mire) feeds into all the other AoEs which lets you bomb on x8 groups one after another. In teams you're likely softcapped on all Resistances (85%) even without the Black Dwarf, but solo you can swap into it instantly. The heal which also gives you endurance makes sure you never really go down and you can come out of Dwarf form instantly to cast it and then Dwarf up again if need be. Overall just seems stronger than it needs to be or should be, and some of the AoE abilities which do good damage you get really early. I think Gravimetric Snare you get already at 4 when others at best get a shitty cone or something like that. The snare lets you just lock down a group and kill them with DoT. You can just step around a corner and solo x8 missions like that.Too many abilities that feed a little too well into eachother, making forms largely optional and you really just end up being able to do everything yourself.
>>356244>>356575Gravity Well seems to do pretty extreme damage to any single target threat with a mag 3 hold and -recharge on it, plus the Gravitic Emanation cone which always gives you some breathing room if you need it with knockback and mag 3 stun ontop of slows to speed and -recharge. Doesn't really seem like there's anything I can't do with ease. If you got +defense from IOs and/or Weave etc I can't see you dying a lot or at all really (even though you have a self-revive too) unless you go AFK because you'd have everything you need to make sure you don't, with no real weaknesses as far as I can tell, and you have strong mes protects on your level 1 auto power Absorption.
Why the fuck would you play on Thunderspy?>see what events are coming up>see pic related>go into general chat and parlement>everything is just overly racist wither it's ironic or not.>log on because maybe it's just the discord>it's a fucking nazi invasion roleplay event>learn that one of their furfag content creators offed himself a while backinb4 muh customization.
>>356774What exactly is wrong with a nazi invasion? Are they known for doing other things in superhero comics? It's literally> Y-you can't punch nazis! That's OUR thing!Why don't you go tell another server what to do or what movies to watch together?
>>356784"We're inclusive and have a diverse admin team"but also"haha whip niggers and coons at a farm and lets make nazi parts for the game haha"
>have a complaint that might maybe be considered valid if you worded it right>double down with a bullshit take, and then an outright lieYou're not good at this.
>>356774>join discord just to nitpick and never talk to anyone
>>356904dafto pls go
>>356933>>356935>>356938Cry about it. I'll report Brain again and the rest of your staff if I have to. Can't run a discord when there's no staff. But then again you like "No Moderation" :^)
>>356945theres nothing to report
>>356946Let's see. Many such cases of fascism, racism, joking about terror attacks, text about killing of minorities, schizophrenia. All ready for my mass report. Don't test me. I got the gun to your virtual heads.
>>356948>actual genuine bad actorUnlikely since if you were actually trying to fuck shit over you would do it instead of talking about it>Falseflagging retard trying to stir up traffic to the thread as an attempt to get attentionPossible but I assume anyone that fucking stupid would realize that kind of shit is literally what killed the /vg/ threads.>"lol im just shitposting for japes and laffs"See above
>>356985>Unlikely since if you were actually trying to fuck shit over you would do it instead of talking about itImplying I didn't already.Also right on time. Your one of your "developers" post this. If I recall they just made a box and got the job? Should you guys at least vet your developers with people who have experience? They haven't done anything else besides post /pol/ shit in the channels.
>>351894>>351896pretty funny you oldfag retards assumed im playing the game wrong or something just because i'm confused about the complex gearing system, even though I didn't talk about my method of actually playing the game at all. Not that I care about your mongoloid surface level opinion on how I enjoy the game, but i'm sure if I explained it to you, you wouldn't be disappointed. Probably just annoyed that i'm so right and you are so so wrong and stupid.>collect badges in every new zone I go>meet each contact I can>do missions for the ones that fit the theme of my hero>do this until i am done exploring the map and done meeting contacts>do radio missions until i get bored or get a new power>test out new power and changes to my build by queueing for random TFs and dungeons or whatever>hami at 9i dont even know the name of dungeons in this game, does this also make me unable to enjoy the game faggot? I use fire farming when the level pacing becomes too slow and I want to have more new powers. You guys are the actual ledditor faggots gatekeeping and projecting your small dick onto me>>351960i understand all the stuff you told me, my problem I guess is that somewhere along building the character I get lost in the multiple sets and applying them in the most efficient way possible, for instance how do I choose between say frozen blast or ragnarok for a power? What characteristics in the power itself should I look for? Is there any general rules of thumb I could follow for building an archetype? Like "tanks need to always fully slot their toggles" ? stuff that will get me started on my own path for getting a build started?>>351971does recharge ever get diminishing returns? I know all about def capping since i farm but other than trying to get my numbers as high as possible I don't know anything about building, i assume the sets i use already for damage are close to best in slot. Purple winter sets and rag/armageddon/oblit.
>>356994>>356985>>356948>>356946>>356945uhhh what the fuck is going on in this thread. I know i just necroreplied to my own post but seriously what the fuck are you faggots up to.
Redpill me on why we hate COXG? Server seems 100% better over HC which is pretty dead as well, (2k pop doesn't mean anything if everyones afk merit farming AE)
>>357096what server do we use again? we actually use hc? they are such faggots
>>357100Hc is just self isolation for hours with an artificially inflated economy and almost all of the "big numbers" you see are multiboxers or people farming alone.Thunderspy has less players overall but they're tightly knit if you can tolerate a lot of shitposting banter.Rebirth and cake have a similar amount of players to thunderspy but cake is just complete nonsense and rebirth tries to stay as close to the base game as they can.
>>357114whats a multiboxer
>>357115Log on multiple accounts at once to fill space and do things you'd need a team to do normally.
>>357046OP again. It sounds like we're both at about the same place in terms of build knowledge. But from what I understand there is no universal "best". Every choice will have advantages and downsides. Some goals are easier to understand than others. For instance many Dominators will build for Perma-Domination, but that won't let them cap everything else. (While I love Doms, I've yet to get perma-dom on any.)On Thunderspy, the guy I would recommend talking to is Meka. He has awesome builds.
>>357046You should kill yourself.
>>357121you should poop your pants and sniff it retard. no more replying to dumb faggots cuz the new captcha is annoying bye>>357120you know i haven't started a dominator yet, i feel the autism coming on. thanks op
>>357120On the topic of recharge getting diminishing returns, that's a hard yes. The proper Incarnate Alpha slotting could mitigate it a fair amount, but even then there would still be diminishing returns.This goes back to something called Enhancement Diversification (ED) that was implemented in issue 6 (i6). Prior to that there were no diminishing returns on enhancements. IOs were meant as the other side to ED but it took until i9 to get those a year later.And as a final disclosure, it's important to note that the game was balanced around SOs and can be played with just those. You won't be "uber", but it CAN be done.
How well is fire/fire at 50? unsure how I should enhance him besides shoving recharge/accu/damage IOs in everything
>>3571341. Don't forget endurance.2> What AT? Fire/Fire can be found in many after all. At least 4.. no it's more than that..
>>346010How close is each server to the original game?
>>357280Rebirth is the closest
>>357280Aye Rebirth is the closest to what live was at shutdown, but even then there are changes. The 1 copy of game code that was leaked included i24 that was still in beta at the time.Also, after 2 years even they are pushing out updates and will keep doing so on a quarterly basis.
>>357362To expand upon that, HC had a fair deal of updates across the 6 years it was the secret server and Leo had sole control. They have also had some updates during their time as a public server, but it seems to have slowed a bit with layers of folks to appease.Thunderspy, during the 2 years it's been active, has either equaled or exceeded the amount of updates on HC depending on how you want to measure such things. Some of these things have affected gameplay like Controllers and Dominators having pets available at level 1, or Defenders having melee-friendly branches of powers to go with a melee primary. Some have not like the Costume Creator having almost 64,000 colors available, up to 5 auras, and an ever-increasing amount of costume options like back mounted weapons or MM pet customization.Cake is... not really trying to be like live, but that doesn't mean you can't have fun there!
Reminder that Thunderspy caused their long play creator to kill himself. Not that it matters because he was a filthy furryfag.
>>357961I mean, he IS still a furry. Just a living one.
>>357951Oh you wanted a link to the longplay video? Also yeah creator is not dead. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fKEzJYwEmRA
>>357046Despite the hype; purples aren't always best in slot, they give massive recharge and accuracy, but depending on your build goals they could be getting in the way of achieving another number. iirc you can't have the same bonus value more than 5 times and I think recharge starts getting DR at around 200% mark outside of incarnate. Past 200% you only shave 1-3 seconds off your power recharges. It's easier to go by certain powers you want to use as often as possible rather than hitting max numbers, a quick and dirty way to see if you can permanently have a power active is to take it's base recharge time value and divide it by 5 then compare that to it's duration.
Honorable mention for ATOs as well.
Lads, let's go to Whoomer's for lunch.
Thunderspy is a ghey server for ghey bois
>thunderspy is caving in to appease leandroHE CANT KEEP WINNING BROS
>>358405Homecoming is the pride/BM server
So I went on HC last night after running an event on Thunderspy to torture myself by trying to talk to old friends from live on the Pride channel there. Folks from live don't seem to have the channel turned on anymore unless they are a mod but I WAS able to talk to some new folks who didn't treat being on the channel as a virtue signal yet!I couldn't lean into selling folks on other servers as hard as I normally do because there was a mod on that was hidden from global channels for unknown reasons. (I cannot cast stones as I was also hidden from global channels to protect myself from some of the power-tripping mods.)Still, I mentioned other servers whenever the chance came up and even mentioned to one person they could start their own personal server to develop game systems in the way they wanted.
The server drama will never stop being boring and gay. It's like listening to a date talk about what an asshole her exes were. It's tedious and kind of a red flag.
>>358842That's fine, check out Rebirth or Cake who stick to themselves instead, I'm trying to guide the Thunderspies away from quite so much open seething as well but I cannot say it's unjustified so there's a good chance it won't ever fully fade. It never really bleeds into the actual game experience though so if you avoid the discord it's like it was never there.
>>358842Keeps coming up cause it keeps being provoked
>>359341Wait, that's my character holding the 9!And I know the person holding the 6!Who are you?
>>359727I am neither of those folks. I think I saved that pic from the Thunderspy discord at some point and it has made an appearance in every thread since.Sometimes there isn't any immediately important City of Heroes news but the morning is otherwise busy. In those times I've been known to find a cool pic I've saved, post it, and call it done for the morning.
>>359727hes basically a bot that steals and reposts every pic everyone posts in the discord
It's another great weekend to play City of Heroes! I know I'd rather do that then be out in triple digit heat! So stay inside and unburned and take a trip to Paragon City or the Rogue Isles!
>>360118You're going to the bird room.
>>358064wow. samefag you replied to here, thats good to know actually. I can at least start building with that goal in mind now
>>360332Taking advantage of the apartments on Thunderspy I see.
Thunderspy will update tomorrow at 10am CST with new custome costume parts.
>>346010is the word "Spy" in "Thunderspy" foreshadowing for a future happening?
>>356904That's based, though?
>>360658Sounds like a request for the ballad of Thunderspy. First the needed background.Thunderspy is the online name of a teenager on the autism spectrum and for this story, you need to know he liked Sonic the hedgehog, Spider-man, and City of Heroes.Like so many of us he rushed onto HC when they opened. And he insisted on making his character look as much like Spider-Man as he could. Well HC doesn't like folks violating copyright on their private pirate server that uses a stolen IP and they genericed him.Thunderspy found this rather upsetting. And somehow he found his way to our discord to tell us what had happened. That's when he gave us his famous line.."I just want to play the game."He had managed to sum up our sentiments on how we wanted our server to be. Just a welcoming place to play the game free from any restrictions we didn't need to impose.So that's who Thunderspy is and why you know his name. Everyone on the server treats him like their kid brother.
>Tumblrspy Babies still crying about their server>Their leader is still a crazed schizophrenic>Abuses his child when on voice chat>Still has that faggot robotfucker on the server>banned actual players because they made a suggestion and called it "harassing his staff">embarrassingly trying to reinvent the game by hiring some battle tech writer>Hasn't even updated their web page with any of the newer stuff
>>360929You guys literally use him as a joke for the server. "Haha let's keep this autistic kid around and name the server after him. He's too fucking stupid to realize we're making fun of him"With Brian's child abuse and half your dev team as kid diddler trannies, I hope none of you guys have children.
>>360942Pretty easy to assume when you look in from the outside>>360934This is just completely off the rails fanfiction except that the website doesn't get updated much
>>360934lmao fuck off tort
>>361110thank you anon, for finally posting, I waited 7 minutes to get a quads, board is dead. Yet somehow it was easier to get quads then fucking dubs.
>>346147that was a lotta posts dude, link a pastebin next time
>>360929Reminder that Thunderspy celebrates his birthday tomorrow.
>>360934Tort, bro, whats wrong with a robofucker. We all know you regularly sexually harrassed Kits and others on HC
>>353941The only time I ever experienced this was on an ATI Crystal card back in ~2008. Haven't seen it on a modern GPU.I'd assume it's a driver bug and/or your GPU.
how do i use 4chan
>>361122double dubs, must be facts
>>361126She's fucking lying! That bitch.
Huuurr durrr let's talk about our server features and not debate on accusations of child abuse and bullying.Fuck off absent friend.
>>360583That's actually a regular SG base, but yeah.
>>361185Glad we're on the same page, robot parts went live today!
Hey what's up guys, Leandro here, i just wanted to get on record that, we barely have any content on our server (Homecoming) but we have the biggest pop, so please play on our server, UNLESS you don't support BLM or the MAP movement, we're really adamant to letting hateful people in on our server, Homecoming strives to have diversity and let people of all background play, so we don't want any hateful commentary, anyways, have a nice one and enjoy playing my game!
>>361231please stop with the double negatives you turbo autist
>>346010got 900 mil in the bank, whats the most expensive powerset to gear?
>>361295Doms or controllers
>>361231why would you let some sjw propagandized cunthole live in your head rent free like this? The only thing i really don't like about HC is they don't want you streaming or recording, AE influence rewards is a boomer-bait topic that has already been shilled in this thread.Lets get it straight fags, you can't say AH and set enhancements aren't required while also complaining about the inflation that happens from ae fags constantly farming for their dead alts. For 1, that means all the faggot tryhards that have no idea how to play TFs and have their dogshit fire def only builds dying constantly to s/l are going to be SPENDING ALL THEIR FAGGOT ASS TIME FARMING BECAUSE THEY INFLATED THEIR OWN SHIT AH. You literally no longer have to deal with all those faggots grinding and all the other noob faggots begging for boost and afking in fucking radio runs, because they will all be camping AE. Yeah I don't really like the faggotry that HC introduced for normies either, but it gets the job done and doesn't affect me at all.Also seething about the community on HC is cringe as shit, the admins may be autistic but you literally never have to deal with them. The community is normie as fuck and about as cringe as /coxg/ thunderspy cringe with faggots spamming their edgelord personalities on global because they have no other safe place in life. I don't want to be subjected to that just as much as I dont want to see faggot sjw MAP boomer cucks in atlas on HC.>nb4 seething hc autist>nb4 its leandrono im just a normal autist. not an edgy one so i dont like coxg.
>>361345We might not deal with the admins but we do have to deal with the HC community semi-regularly, we're still trying to fan off all the gaslighting they've done to all the MMO circles to make them think that they are the only CoH server that exists and then after that, that they are both somehow closer to official than any other server, or that they are the closest thing to Live CoH while the other servers don't bother testing anything they put out. Everything TS has ever felt about HC has been reactionary, and the fact that their admins are bound by contract to never even try to apologize just makes it all the more of a slog to actually try and reach past this state.
>>361116Yeah mistakes were made there and I'm better prepared if it happens again.>>361122Oops! I'm a day ahead!>>361225Duly noted! Ty. :)>>361227YES!! And we'll cover that more too.

>>361350never heard a single person talk about how HC is closer to live than rebirth, or how they are even the only server that exists somehow. I have no idea what you are on about, but you just seem like a hard individual to communicate with and i wouldnt be surprised if that was the reason you are being such a faggot about an entire server population of people. I mean dude its literally just thenormie server, whats more to dissect there. What even is TS? Admins aren't allowed to apologize? For what? You haven't even complained about the game differences so what is the point of complaining.
>>361382Not to mention HC likes to gaslight the shit out of other servers, while simultaneously claiming that the gaslighting is all in our imagination and we're just paranoid schizos. We need to just take our nonexistant gaslighting and shut up, apparently.
>>361382Those were all lifted talking points from the r/cityofheroes subreddit and the HC discord you can find easily enough with a little search savvy, there's likely even worse in the Facebook groups I don't really check up on those. You can choose to interpret the situation however you'd like, though, it's just a little strange to give the benefit of the doubt to the SCoRE-backed server as they've done nothing to earn it and everything to make you want to be critical of them until a sign of real, palpable change can be wrung out.
Hey guys, Leandro Moglia here, proud owner of a Kiosk here in Argentina La Plata, i just wanted to say, please DON'T and i repeat DON'T, engange is hateful discussions, we the Homecoming team believe that censorship is good, and we'll find a way to track down the people that are being hateful in this board and BAN THEM from my game, so please and i repeat PLEASE don't engange with Thunderspy players, 'cause as you may know, they enforce "free speech", but "free speech" doesn't mean you can say anything you want, real FREE SPEECH is the one that we enforce here in City Of Heroes: Homecoming, were only the progressive and constructive opinions are allowedAnyways, gotta blast! my little cousin wants to play Mortal Kombat, i'll show him a couple moves... Catch you in Paragon City Heroes!
>>361404hc discord and are slash shitty of reddit are both not the actual game. What is SCoRE? I literally just play the game, when I tried out HC it was a normal overall friendly experience where I met a variety of people, many of them autistic. When I tried /coxg/ it was exactly what i expected, a 4chan server. It wasn't unfriendly but it's not a normal social environment either, asking questions and engaging in general is different. Not sure what basically you're entire post means, and i'm not trying to bant like i was last time and call you a retard. I just dont know what you mean, what would I want to change? I don't know what score is so idk what backing or earning that would mean. I really don't engage with anything coh related outside of the game itself and this thread, so i don't understand what you mean when you reference them.>>361402you just sound schizo. like HC cheated on you with an uberchad. What is gaslighting in the context of the entire homecoming community doing it to you? You're saying its Anon vs The Homecoming Community? I mean I shouldn't even engage with your post with this much deliberation but hey there's a hero in everyone. even you
>>346010keep up the good work bro. hope to see you on server something
>>361414There are a significant number of HC players/drones/shills, whatever you want to call them that dedicate their time to going into these threads and reddit threads and Facebook groups in order to outright slander and lie about other servers. People rightfully hate HC because it's players participate in this shit and then try to brazenly say it never happens, it's administrative team is full of awful people. if it didn't have the tittle "first server up after bree went down" people would just play on something like rebirth because it doesn't actually offer anything other server don't. there are endless examples you can see of the HCs player base actually being shit heads even on their own forums.
>>361417i concor. the only positive for homecoming is the size of the player base
>>361414>>361402 here.Okay, first off, This is the first time I've even posted anything in this particular instance of this argument, just to get that out of the way.Second, I could point out that there is concrete evidence of downvote bots being used in the reddit, and even on youtube, not to mention the fake DMCAs on the ad campaign that was tried, that we KNOW is fake because we CONTACTED NCSOFT and they said "yeah, that wasn't us."I could also go on about how the narrative of what Thunderspy is and why you shouldn't go there constantly changes based on what was recently updated, where you ask, always spun to be a bad thing.Ask on reddit? It's the 4chan nazi server.Ask on 4chan? It's the whiny tryhard server.They just released a lot of content? It's spun to be buggy and untested.They asked for donations? They're a danger to all of City of Heroes and will get everyone shut down.Homecoming asked for donations? Deny all evidence of saying the above.Homecoming banned streamers? Clearly it's to keep everyone safe from DMCA.Homecoming unbanned streamers? Clearly those talks must be working despite no evidence.Thunderspy mentioning any form of gaslighting? They're obviously just a bunch of insane schizos.I've been paying attention to this entire debacle for over two years now. If you paid attention, you'd know who's in the wrong, too.
>>361452don't trust homecoming because they lied to everyone that wasn't their close butt buddiez about the private server for years
>>361453>>361452but how does that affect the game? City of Heroes? I don't support them just by playing on the server, unless you think being a statistic is a sign of support. Its really cringe that this is how posters bring up why I shouldnt play on homecoming when I literally log on to muh favorite hero alts in my headcanon of pure autism. There is TRULY no other reason I play this shitty mmo other than the fact it is hero and super power based, and it has a well to do gear system even though its archaic as fuck. Just that idea of this game in itself brings the most kino types of autists to come and shoot the shit with compared to any mmo i've personally played. Yeah all online communities will be cringe though so i'm not saying i support specifically the hc of coxg community because i really don't care either which way. I have a lot less reasons to play on thunderspy since HC is so forgiving with its rewards, but I still have a few characters there.
>>361432Shut up powers.
>>361572Well, since you've moved your goalpost from "there is no gaslighting" to "there is gaslighting, but not enough to affect gameplay", I think it's pretty obvious you aren't taking what I say in good faith. But I'll humor you.Who do you think you're playing with when you play on homecoming? Do you honestly think the same people who are doing the gaslighting don't play the server they support? And the fact that you think the people on homecoming are "the most kino types of autist" is just further proof you're not an average dullard. The average dullard, the same people who think HC is the ONLY server, absolutely hate the toxic community there. And of course there will be people who are saying "there's no toxic people here". Because they ARE the toxic people.Your "headcanon of pure autism" argument falls apart, too, because if you truly cared about your headcanons, you'd play on a server that actually has mastermind customization, and more costume pieces.I can't wait to see your next reply, where you continue to move the goalpost.
>>361572>I play my roleplaying characters on server that has the least amount of customization and power options because it's more in character for me to not have optionsBasically all I'm seeing here.
>>361632or he plays his MMO characters where there's a higher population so that he has more options in a MMO
>>361640He said it himself, most players on hc are self isolating in AE to bloat the economy so thats off the table too.>muh popIs never a relevant argument because if everyone who complained about their friends, more people, etc. being in one place moved guess what? Theyd have other players in other places too!Getting to lvl50 only takes a day or two(24-48 hours)total of gameplay so that's no excuse either.
>>361609hello Leandro. nice to see without you butt buddy illegally giving you a copy of the gane files all you can do is slander and shout vulgarities. but good heavens, don't you censor those things? i guess you need to censor yourself then to avoid being a hypocrite
>>361616i agree homecoming is full of toxic libtards, that see WW2 faction members behind every bush. the clique does nothing about them but will do shit if you critize them or the clown cult
I'm tired of the term gaslighting. Can't we just call it what it is? Being a manipulative lying asshole that spews garbage?
>>361669we should get rid of all the terms used by the clown cult. but you can't just say don't use this word. you need to mock the use or replace it with something else. that way when the NPCs keep using the buzzwords from their response array they will just look worse.For example, i always mock people that use the VHS slur and call them Critters
So I was messing around on Thunderspy's QA server before yesterday's patch hit with the newest custom costume parts. Basically just hitting the random button until I got something I kinda liked.Wait, did I actually need to say Thunderspy? I mean how many giveaways are in that pic? Starting from the left there are multiple chest details and multiple auras. The left glove is a "clamp" which is entirely new.In the center with the character itself there's an entirely new head and shoulders as well as the left glove/clamp. There's also separate lower leg details with the right leg having knee armor and the left having a manacle. Other costume parts still unique to Thunderspy from prior patches include the animated Rulu-shin eye, the suspenders, the battle-axe on the back, and the luminous right glove.Then over on the right side we have the expanded color picker with almost 64,000 colors to choose from.
>>361690Holy fuck, SPJimmy. Shut the fuck up. You're so unbearable.
>>361683>vhs slurWhat the fuck are you talking about Jessie?
>>361691That's definitely not jimmy. He barely plays the game, let alone do anything on QA.
>>361700If I had to guess.That said, thats fucking autistic and "more like REPUBLICRAPS AMIRITE" boomer-tier retarded.
>>361691i think you belong on red dit or fagschord with your censorship attitude, Ghoulie
>>361690>hit random>got all new parts and not a purple winged furryI dont believe you for a second.
>>361700yeah, what does VHS slur refer to, Hobogoblin?
>>361703easy there bro. why would anyone make fun of people using a VHS slur? surely an insult based on the VHS era is the height of fedora hipsterism. if you keep gatekeeping like this, someone will call you The Gate
>>361708>>361707>>361704>>361703Whats with this retarded spam? Go back to /pol/ niggers
>>361713found the libtard. back to red dit and homecucking with you, House boi
So why does no one ever talk about the gameplay itself?
>>361725>on a thread with plenty if talk about gameplay> asserts the opposite in a denial of realityback to fagschord and the clown cult with you
>>361734>endless debate about people and what is and isn't good enough to be a server>gameplay discussion
>>361706The CoH randomizer actually has a weird prioritizing towards new parts, funnily.Also, TS's QA server is currently working on raising the body/facial scales, leading to Bethesda game-levels of horrifying freak faces made possible and Dwarfcore phenotypes
>Just appeal on the forums>you ban me from the forumsYeah, great system Brain. Your server is nothing, NOTHING without Veracity.
Nice try but tort and all of verspazity is too sheltered to even try arguing on an anonymous imageboard.
These new facial sliders are hilarious
>>361609Bro, thats not me, I throw in at least one bro when arguing on here. PLUS WHY THE FUCK WOULD I DEFEND HOMECOMING
>>361956can you increase the NOSE
>>3616912 things about that you dumbass.1st. Jimmy is a cool guy, you are an asshole.2nd. Jimmy gets more people into CoH, you don't.So just shut the fuck up bro
>>361980Oi vey it's true they're gonna be hearing from my lawyer!!
>>361632you stupid nigger, i play on /coxg/ too. You fags can't handle the fact that I play on HC without virtue signaling my moral stances to everyone around me, i really dont care that they are a bunch of normie faggot trannies. You are by far more faggot tranny for virtue signaling your bullshit about this that and the other thing when i literally just play the fucking game. you have no fucking idea how sad your life is if you log on to city of heroes to fucking argue with sjws about censorship and feelings. >>361616i mean look at fucking this shit. im not even reading beyond "you moved the goal post" nigger im not fucking debating you. Im trying to understand why you care so much about this drivel, and you can't get past trying to convince me to validate the suffering HC has caused you, like nigger i dont fucking care jesus christ who the fuck is so emotionally vulnerable as to get gaslit by an entire community of autistic private MMO players. you tards are so delusional. overtly cringe
>>362030Yeah yeah sure I hear you but GET A LOAD OF THIS
>>361650>mostye most of the faggots i dont want to interact with anyways. tryhards, boring retards, actual noobs, beggars. Thats who AE farms.
>>362033checked and kek'd. okay? you happy fat ass?
>>362036do I look happy you double nigger
>>362030So now you're throwing a shitfit, because your bullshit has been called out. Interesting change in tactic from goalpost movement, but okay.
What are the easier soloing classes?
>>362329>asking redundant questions to keep the thread bumped
This game kinda sucks.
>>362375WDYM? its really enjoyable.>>362329Easierst: Scrapper, Tanker, Corrupter, and Dominatior (move MM here for Tspy)More difficult but doable: MM, controller, Defender, Blaster, Stalker, and brute
>>362375You probably aren't playing a powerset that ragdolls enemies enough
>>362329>>362493Hmm. My list for solo beginners would be..1. Scrappers and Brutes. Only real downside is they're melee and that might not be what you want, but very survivable.2. Corrupters and Master Minds. Very small learning curve on these as you manage SCOURGE to good effect or learn MM controls.3. Blaster, Dominator, and Stalker. Decent learning curve as you learn to manage how many enemies will be attacking you at the same time. (Protip for new Doms. Kill the enemy still attacking you 1st and the held one later.)4. Tankers, Defenders, and Controllers. These classes are more team-friendly and they can be great fun. But for a beginning soloist they all have the same issue of lower damage output.
Cake has a patch out today with patch notes that read..Todays update brings:Feature Update: New Ranged Powerset "GEO Blast" First Ranged Earth/Stone Powerset for Blaster's/Defender's/Corruptor's/Blapper's... ENjoy!!!
Is it still better for non tanks/brutes to use defense powers rather than resist powers?
>>362030You type like a stupid fucking nigger. you're making a post not a fucking live chat you dumb baboon gorilla fuck.
>>362613defense prevents being hit, resist just lessens the damage.
Any hero builder software that includes Primalist?
>>362613In many, if not most cases, yeah Def will be better than resist, but let me qualify that statement. You have to have a significant amount of defense before this kicks in. Just Weave on it's own without anything else would probably be worse than Tough.The math is pretty simple though. An enemy equal in level to you has a base 50% chance to hit and cannot have lower than 5% chance to hit. So a DEF based character would want 45% def to everything for even con enemies. That is the simplest case however.
>>362329>>362375lmfao samefag reddit nigger noob. you play with other heroes. then roleplay justice league shit.
>>362615>implying my 4chan post inherently deserves and deliberation or credence
>>362622chekd>>362642reddit nigger noob here, cant you just get both most of the time?
>>362714Sure but the anon posed the question as an either/or.
>>362641Sorry but I don't expect there is just now. Leave you a chance to make one however. :)
>>362712So you admit you're just here to shitpost, and shouldn't be taken seriously? Good to know.
Worst MMO I've played. Even the customization isn't much to brag about, just using preset things to mix and match with no real variety.
BY YOUR ORIGINS COMBINED, WE ARE CITY OF HEROES
What ATs would use the fewest keybinds?
>>363294In City of Heroes, keybinds are only common on some Khelds and Master Minds. And to be honest I've never really used them on MMs.
>>363160Bro its better then champions, and way better then DCO.
>>363587Those are also bad.
Recovered this treasure a few days ago with the help of @Quinch on the Rebirth discord. It's from the official live forums. Nothing controversial about this one. Just a post that added a unique value from the community.
>>363829Then what MMO do you think is good then? Because WoW, FF14, and ESO hold nothing against CoH
>>364240the best MMO is none, they all suck
>>364259Oh, fair, yah I can see that
What server has the most easy to communicate with dev and mod teams?If you have to ask them in private how approachable they are don't even bring them up.
>>364298Oh that's easy. Any server in the 2nd post, except Sanctuary/Ascension which is down for now, will have a very responsive Dev team. I'm in 3 of 4 of their discords and new folks are greeted and answered just like the vets are.Now the usual disclaimer that they may not agree with every idea presented applies. But yeah they'll talk to ya.
>>364308Give some examples then
>>364298You can go on Thunderspy right now and call one of the devs dumb and get a response. Tell them a change is dumb while while you're at it
Sentiments of a Tspy dev. Very based.
This weekend on Tspy I expect more robot parts will release. Also CoP will change.
this weekend I can expect endless shilling and no one actually playing on thunderfuck
>>363300hey man, one of those was me.
>>365120Jesus christ Goat, you're still doing this shit?
Get ready for another great weekend playing City of Heroes!
about to multibox and make another 500mil this weekend.
Ok apparently no Tspy patch this weekend. Stuff is ready to release but other backend things have to happen.
How much of a pain is it to respec?
>>366565I don't think it's to bad, but I'm used to it now too. Just so everyone is on the same page, a respec lets a character rechoose their powers and enhancement slots. (Still the same AT and Primary/secondary powersets however.) You can get respecs several ways...1. On i24 servers like Rebirth and Thunderspy, Paragon Rewards can give several free respecs per character once earned.2. On both red and blue sides, there are 3 respec Trials that will award a respec.3. You can earn from drops or possibly buy a recipe for a respec.4 On redside, completing the 1st patron arc will award a respec.5. Rare, but when devs alter a powerset they might grant a respec. (Like when the Tspy devs changed Assualt Rifle.)To use a respec, 1st check the info dump that happens when you log in to see that you have one available. (For respecs from Paragon rewards you will have to go into Account items in email to claim them.) Then go to your respec contact. On Red it's the Arbiter hanging around the Pocket D building. On Blue it's Jack Wolfe I want to say, inside City Hall in AP.
>>366565it always takes me like 3 hours to respec
>>3666411st time I respecced a 50 on Tspy, it took about 2 hours. Now with practice I am down to below an hour.
City of herpes
Had a fun day on Thunderspy so far. Taking a new character through all 3 mayhems she qualified for. Very glad the Thunderspy doesn't let you outlevel content.
Come play with us! Launcher in the OP and servers in the second post!
>>368892Can't. Having internet issues for a while now ;_;
>>346010Hey friends. How do the server populations compare? I messed around a bit on Homecoming and Thunderspy when private servers were just coming up. But I want to actually play the game this time around as opposed to just making characters. Are there any servers with a strong leveling population, not just an endgame one?
>>368953You kinda missed the window on that. Now that private servers have been around for over 2 years it's hard to hop on and find that. Thunderspy has those kinds of players but unless you hop on at a good time you might not find anything due to the low population. And while homecoming has decent numbers online people are seldom advertising for low level groups. I've played primarily on homecoming and the only way you'll get that kind of leveling group is if you pre-arrange it. The hype has fizzled out
Thunderspy devs are egomaniacs that believe that they can do no wrong.
>>368965Alright, thanks. I'll give both a try. I would really prefer to support Thunderspy, Homecoming seems like its only virtue is population. But fundamentally it's an MMO and I'd like to at least see other human beings while I'm playing the gamegonna make some kung fu master stalker guy, see you on there maybe
>>368992in HC you'd only see people farming endlessly, eventually forcing you to adapt the same mentality
>>369014That's not true. There's more AE farming faggots spamming LFG than I'd like to see but there's a mix of task forces and groups being advertised. But it's almost always a really wide range of levels with a power imbalance due to free attuned IOs and exemplaring mechanics. So it's definitely not a leveling team experience with a PUG
>>369040Fuck off drone
The powers division is full of homosexuals
Anyone able to get 144 fps stable on nvidia that can share settings?
Pic is the winners of the Halloween costume contest on Thunderspy!
>>369222fucking bot kill yourself
Hoping for Master X Master to come back via private servers. That game had a CoH and CoV representation.
How do I join the discord
>>369882Good question retard didn't update the site with the new link
>>369882There's a link on each site's page from the 2nd post in thread. Just be persistent and you'll be fine.
>>370066There expired invies
Fix the invite link RETARD
>>370072To my knowledge, those invites expire quite quickly. (Certainly did with my SG site.) Maintaining them isn't a practical thing.But enough about what doesn't matter. Even the expired invites get you to discord. Once there and signed in, the various discords are but a search away using the name in the link. (ThunderSpyGaming, CityOfHeroesRebirth, etc.)So like I said. A little persistence using the available info and you're all good.
How bad is the grinding in this game, compared to other MMOs?
>>370306Short answer is not bad really. But a lot depends on how you define grinding.As I understand it, the goal in many games is to "grind" to get to the endgame. (Korean games have a real rep for this and NCSoft was a Korean publisher, so the question is entirely valid.)Thing is,.. City of Heroes launched without an endgame. And while an endgame was eventually tacked on after several years, it's optional.Originally the vision the devs had was to roll an alt when you hit 50. And the game worked just like that for the longer part of it's "live" life cycle. The reason it worked is there's always something for your character to do.Like at level 4 you can get a travel power. At level 10 you can get a title or start a Super Group. At level 12 you can use better enhancements. At 15 you can enter your first PvP zone. Level 20 gives you the chance to earn a cape or start on the alignment system with tip missions. And the list just continues.There are some folks that want to rush to level 22, but that's mostly a memory from live.
Patch on Thunderspy today in about an hour.
Whoops! They went ahead of schedule.Patch notes: https://thunderspygaming.boards.net/thread/64/patch-notes-july-25th-2021
Now more range on leg sliders for shortstack fans!
>>370955why do you just steal everyone elses pictures instead of making your own
>>370965There are a few reasons. 1st one is time available. I have a full time job and family AND I also want to play the game. Maintaining this thread is an "extra" if you will that can only happen if most posts are easy and quick. Already existing pics of features I want to highlight are a tremendous help in this. No need to reinvent the wheel. 2nd one is my skills at creating or taking these pics honestly suck. That side by side pic from >>370955? I don't know how to do that. So I lean hard on the community I'm trying to advertise and build up in this regard.
>>370979>I don't even know how to take pictures of things myselfare you genuinely retarded?
>>346010I'm so happy
>>370996Welcome back! This is the kind of post that makes these threads worthwhile. Tell your friends and explore the options that you are now aware of. And always know that you are welcome!
I'm so unhappy
>>370253>To my knowledge, those invites expire quite quickly. (Certainly did with my SG site.) Maintaining them isn't a practical thing.No they're not what the fuck lmao You can choose to make them permanent. It takes five seconds of reading. No way Thunderspy devs are too retarded to know how to make a persistent invite link holy shit
>>371280>5 seconds of readingAnd then comes the practical experience. You can set them to permanent and they expire anyway. (You) were already told this AFTER you saw proof.But I'll tell ya what. Make a discord, set your invites to permanent, and check back in 3 weeks. Telling you again that the invites will have expired.
>>371280the person who makes and maintains these threads has a legitimate learning disability, as well as half of thunderspy's discord.
>>371311Wrong. It's expired because the channel it's connected to was deleted you actual mouthbreathing retard because you cam set then to have maximum number of invites or duration up to unlimited and permanent. Don't talk about shit you don't know about becuase it only makes you look like more an idiot.
>>371455Invincible weapons? Finally.
Continued from >>355169PPD Sgt. John Yu waited for the arrival of the assigned detective at the nondescript intersection in King's Row. The well groomed Asian American man had an air of attentive indifference as other officers routed pedestrians around the taped off crime scene. Suddenly they let the detective through. It was the Sgt's older brother and he immediately asked "What have we got here Sgt.?""Detective. Approximately 3 hours and seventeen minutes ago, a small combat robot set up a folding card table and unfurled a sign that read 'Air tax 5¢'." He said in a prepared manner. "The robot then beckoned over passerby and asked them for a nickel. When presented with a nickel, the robot asked them to toss it in the air, at least 3 feet over their heads. A high-powered weapon was fired from an unknown location and went through the middle of the nickel and landed on the card table. The robot then picked up the nickel to show everyone and thanked the citizen for paying their air tax and suggested the rest to form a line. Everyone decided a nickel was a premium bargain and got in line. This went on for 22 minutes until the robot flew off to parts unknown. Throughout the incident the robot was polite but refused to say who sent it or why.""Hmmm," mused the Detective "Unusual and yet not very interesting. If it weren't for the sniper shooting live ammo near civilians in the city, I'd be tempted to ignore it. But we can't ignore it and that tells us the motive." The detective kept going without waiting for the Sgt to ask what. "With a sniper in the open city, we HAVE to send units to look for them or face public outrage for not doing it. Those units could be doing something else, but without a solid cause they are locked into that task for the time being. As such, it's clearly a distraction while something else happens."
>>371954Just then, a small shape flew high overhead attracting the brothers attention. It dropped something which floated gently down on a small parachute and landed in the detective's hands. It was a small bright purple envelope. The Detective examined it and said "It's addressed to Sgt. John [Plugged Nickel] Yu." and handed it over...
>>371954>>355169>>371955what is this autism
>>372005It's a story I've been writing in brief bursts over the past several threads. It started when some anon requested folks to post character bios. None were forthcoming from others and it's not something *I* really do. But I DID have this VG origin story kicking around in my head so I started in on that. Today I introduced 1 new recurring character, bringing the total up to... 4.Now yes there are many reasons this is a bad idea. 4chan threads in general are horrible places to tell stories in this fashion just to begin with. And it seems that /vm/ has a limit of 2000 characters per post and that does not help. I also crank out an installment on a whimsical basis at best. And of course no one else has access to prior parts if they are just discovering this thread.Maybe someday I'll theme a thread to repost everything so far
>>371328It's expected. thunderspy owners aren't even 4chan users to begin with. They are well poisoners from HC that established a controlled opposition early on to stop any real competition from forming or info from being spread
>>372209So you're now saying that HC owners are the REAL 4chan users? Normally I'd screencap this and have a good laugh with everyone, but this was clearly inspired by recreational drug use.
>>372209Imagine being this out of touch. Fuck off nigger.
>>372440ye the only reason thunderspy got the steam to exist was because faggots from HC were overly tilted and left HC to start their own server. Him saying theyre controlled op is just retarded though. no reason to be so faggy if its just a controlled op.
>>371549>>371311>discord users arguing
>>370306bad as shit. dogshit grinding. you really have to lean on RP and community to have fun. mish levelling is the funnest and simplest "grind" to 50 and you can do that with a team. Anything else will be boring as shit or much slower and not considered a grind by your terms
Well at least we won't have to deal with these trolls much longer.For those of you able to see through the blatant shitposting, we would welcome a chance to see you on our servers.
>>372849>everyone that isn't sucking off th*nderspy is a troll
>>372209>>372548The fuck are you smoking Lmao They are from 4chan and hotwheelschan. This is the weirdest larp this has to be a troll. The only person even remotely affiliated was Normal Guy and even he was from 4chan and was anti-Leo and anti-Cipher when he was a GM there
>>372552The site is ass and I would rather see patch notes directly than sit in this godawful thread.
discord is gay and makes people gay
>>372548Unironically the owners of Sanctuary, Rebirth and the Reddit server all played on Leos secret server. Feel free to let that sink in when you realize the owner of Rebirth does nothing but play Destiny and has yet to bother learning how to do anything to support his server, one was an insane tranny that sabatoged the first Discord while working with Leos Reddit mods for its own server and the other stole code from We Have Cake and was a mental case and retard. All three chummed up Thunderspy to try and get what they wanted for their servers then say shit or refuse to contribute or help, or jerk off the faggots who shit talk the server. Really makes you think.
>>372880>Feel free to let that sink inFuck that sink it owes me $20
Thunderspy recently unlocked leg sliders. Now you can make convincing little people.
Player made tintable chest logos on Thunderspy.
Female suspenders, holsters, and overshirts from a prior patch on Thunderspy!
>>372452>maybe if I say the n word I will sound like I fit init's obvious you don't belong here. Look at the stupid reaction images you post
reminder that CoH is boring and unfun, the build diversity doesn't matter, and if you get tricked by the faggot who runs these threads into playing you're just gonna be playing dress up with a splash of forum-like social pecking order nonsense on a dead server to boot.
>>373862So.... You don't like City of Heroes... And you come into a City of heroes thread to let us know that (you) don't like City of Heroes?Does it bother (you) that lots of folks have fun doing something you don't like?Are you injured by the enjoyment of others?Don't you just hate that other folks sometimes make choices (you) wouldn't? Would you punish them for doing that if you could?Well all I can say is it sucks to be (you) and I'm glad we don't need your approval for anything. In fact, anyone can go to thunderspygaming.net and download a launcher for free. While the game is downloading and installing, go to >>346011and pick a server or 3 to make an account on so you can be ready to play when the game is.
you see how gay this retard?
you gay retard see this?
I want 2 cum on codingsocks
>>373862a splash of forum-like social pecking order nonsense on a dead server to boot.Yeah, it's kind of annoying when the devs talk about themselves like we're supposed to care. It happens a lot on thunderspy and it's worrying.
got another account to max currency from multiclienting on HC AE. Seethe once again thunderspy fags.What powerset should i pay for this time? im thinking blaster or defender.
>>374469> got another account to max currency from multiclienting on HC AE. Seethe once again..Wow! An entire ACCOUNT to max currency? All 1,000 character slots to 2B inf? Again? Congratulations!What are your plans for it? Will you sponsor contests? Gift some to unsuspecting new players? Equip about.. 10 characters?Ok I'm sorry about that last one. It's just that on due to the difference in how well the economies are run on Thunderspy I could probably buy more with 1/3 to 1/4 of that inf. That is, if I wasn't busy sponsoring contests like the one we had on Halloween or gifting inf to folks new to the server. And I pay for it by multiboxing and ITF once a month or so, so again no seethe.When I did play on HC, I basically gave away almost all my inf there in a costume contest inside my SG base. And I used the base editing tools there fairly creatively if I do say so myself. (There's a video of the charity streaming event in the OP as it was the March before last.)
>>374550>not seething>long reply full of seething
>>374793lurk 10 more years before posting newfag. Your posts would fit in great on discord or facebook
>>374933lmfao>>374550>didnt even answer my reply>blindly seethes insteadwhat primary should my DP defender use?
>>346010>City of Heroes is back from the dead! You will want the Sweet Tea launcher from http://files.thunderspygaming.net/sweet-tea/ to start.Wait what? How many times did this die?
>>375367its still dead, this thread is kept alive by one dude who steals posts from everyone in a discord.
>>375367It officially died when the publisher, NCSoft, pulled support in 2012. Before that however, an unknown dev leaked the entire game to someone that couldn't be prosecuted for having it. That person set up an invite-only server and kept it secret for over 6 years from everyone else with lies and misinformation. Just over 2 years ago proof that the game still lived leaked in a way that couldn't be denied, folks got PISSED, and suddenly the guy that had been hoarding it decided it was better to release the code.Now we have several private pirate servers that offer the game to anyone.
>>375243I like poison and nature with dual pistols. any primary that doesn't eat up all your slots is nice so you can load up on procs in your pistol attacks
>>371455So can all those back weapons actually fire or is it just for looks?
>>373593lemme know when sybil parts are available on tspy, always wanted to use them
>>376200Afraid we don't yet have anyone doing animations to change the emission points of powers, so for now it's just for looks on that backpack. However that said, there ARE plenty of melee and rifle weapons that can go on the back, or sometimes hips, that will draw properly.>>376202Can do! Although now that I think about it, those seem like such an obvious choice for porting, there might be technical issues. I will ask on the discord.
