I am back :(
« on: September 22, 2016, 09:05:52 PM »
Well, I am back to playing champions, I need my superhero fix; and at the moment, this is the only one that does. (At least till City of. comes back. I have noticed a few things from my return, such as there are now stairs in Mil. City. As well as more buildings, these has helped a bit for me to come back and play. Side note, it seems as though the enemy has improved a small bit, which is also a good thing.
One day the Phoenix will rise again.

Why the unhappy face?

There weren't stairs in MC before?

The buildings and stairs make the game better...??

SO many questions!

: )

I was going to play CO this week because I didn't have enough Internet to play STO but I got ninja'd so I couldn't even do that.

Well, you could guess why for the sad face.  Back when I played the stairs were not as defined as they are now. There were also not as many buildings. Just for me it makes the game seem a bit more alive.
You can ask any amount of questions :)

I logged in and made a new character just to goof around with. No sub means most of my characters are locked and I don't feel like doing anything about it. CO is not really capturing my attention. I like playing with the costume creator, but the game itself just make me want to play CoX. I've been having a lot of that lately which is why I logged in to CO at all. If I have time this weekend I might hop on for a bit, but then again I might not.

I still havent gotten over all the bad things which happened to CO, and recently a gaslighting troll, well, wasted my time on youtube a few weeks ago(on the day i started my new job in fact).  I am not ready to give it another go.  Not with CO's trolls still stalking and lying constantly about CoX players.
Currently; Not doing any streaming, found myself with less time available recently.  Still playing starbound periodically, though I am thinking of trying other games.  Don't tell me to play mmohtg's though please :).  Getting back into participating in VO and the successors again to.

I get that Alex :), what I do is just disable the broadcast part of chat and just talk to my friends if they are on. Mostly, I just stick to myself. I do have to say the only time I really engage the community is if I have a question and my friends are not online. Just last week I asked which controllable pet was the best, and I did not get an answer, since I said I was making a mastermind-esk character. There were some trolls, but there were some good advice.
Still though I have not really gotten an answer for my question though, so far I have attack toys, the angel, the attack bots, and drones. I am trying to go very slowly so I can get the permanent twins sidekick, which would make this character complete.

The person didn't troll me in CO zone chat, but youtube.  You might have seen it, the video "Top 10 failed mmorpgs", I had some responses to Silverspar, the prick was clearly gaslighting me accusing me of putting words in her mouth, in reality she was the one calling everyone in the particular line of posts liars.

CO community doesn't leave anyone alone outside there own game, so it thus turns me off from ever interacting with them or playing there game, other than logging in occasionally to see how poorly there population is deservedly doing.

For your second part, I get what you are saying :). I have seen that video, and have seen people saying just because City of. is not live anymore is a failure, to me that is wrong, it survived 7 years; and hopefully when it comes back will have many more years.
There are some good people that play, such as Xev and Brou.

Aye, that I understand and I'm willing to speak with them.  I honestly just need some time before I consider playing again.  I was burned out as it was, and the latest changes were at best discouraging for me.  The new content isn't anything I'm interested in either, as it's magic magic magic, sadly I'm not someone who roleplays magic characters and I tired of the endless stream of magical mary sues in CO running around.

These days if I played it, I wouldn't be roleplaying in the game anymore.  I'd play it for a few weeks at best before returning to paragon chat for roleplaying.

That is very true, it took me 3 years to play again, and that was because I need my superhero fix. Watching YouTube lets plays of City of. while fun is aggravating to say the least, due to me wanting to play.
I do wish my laptop would let me to upload Paragon-chat, but I cannot take the risk of something coming in if I bring down my anti-virus :(

The same thing is happening to me as well now, I like a nice debate, however, when someone lies about me, this time, it is "and so far you've not provided one plausible answer other than the stand by that NCSoft hates America, which is a pretty stupid reasoning." As you could read by any of my responses, I have never eluded to it.

Thanks for saying nice stuff about me. ^

I have CO burnout too.

I was not only having fun playing CO right up until I stopped playing it, but I was *relying* on it to have fun.. It was my go-to fun button and whenever I pushed it, fun ensued.

It was the nerfs that got me. They managed to break one of my longest running go-to fun buttons ever.

I think I never played a game so much, the same content over and over, and never got tired of it. Better yet, I was trying to shave off a millisecond of how fast it was to finish an Alurt here, and gain a fraction of some dps there. Still trying to get better at Custom Alurts and gear and I was checking my parse logs with pride.

Just a week before I stopped playing I was having the CO time of my life. I *finally* put a new Electricity build together that I really like, just got a DUC for my beloved Fire build.. Jooc and Senge were back! And I was pumped! Force was going to be my next target. Another *finally* build.

I was relying on CO to be my escape. In CO's defense, I was relying on it heavily. It was doing a great job and then the nerfs just ruined it for me. They just wouldn't stop with them. It felt like as soon as I got over one nerf I had to swallow another and it was making me mad to log on to every new one. Finally I got what felt like hit below the belt one time too many and I was like "hey, this is stupid". To keep playing, that is. Because my fun button had been replaced with a ... not fun button.

That, and, I very simply was Bored/Tired of rerolling/rethinking my dps themes which is what was taking more and more of my playtime.

Anyway, yeah. I have burnout too. Last time I logged on I had that definite burnout feeling.

Oh well.

I still like reading and talking about CO. I still like the game.

If I had better Internet I'd probably play more. I feel bad I don't log in once in awhile to help fill up some teams when I see people lfm when I'm in STO.


Oh yeah.....! So, why the unhappy face?? You aren't glad to be back? CO just isn't your thing?

YW Xev :), Well to be blunt City of. is not back yet, and I would rather play that. However, with the games that are out such as Co and DCU, I would rather play co, due to me not liking the click 5 times right button, 4 times left button, pull off a dance, to activate a power. I am glad I can team with my City of. friends whenever, we are on at the same time, i like that the environment has gotten a bit better. When I was in CB phase 2, I was addicted to what was being offered at that time, even bought a lifetime. Now over the course I have realized that I should have stayed with City of. but I was too angry with the direction it was heading. And this at the moment is my rented home, until I can get back into TSW. So in a way, CO is my thing due to being a superhero game, on the other side it is a painful reminder of the mistake I made in 2011. and having issues the self promoted "forum cartel" has ruined any kind of enjoyment I could have. So in that it is not my thing. I would like to login and have the type of fun and excitement that I had in the first year and most of the second.

I learned to avoid Silverspar all the way back on Vitrue maybe 9-10 years ago. Something like that. I've bumped into them over the years on forums or whatever and nothing seems to have changed. With some people the best approach to take is not to engage or acknowledge them at all if you can avoid it.

EDIT: I poked it with a stick because I am a childish person.

This is very true, I never knew this person until I ran head first with them on the co boards. After a few exchanges I started to feel as if Silver was either ignorant, and did not care what anyone else had to say. Which lead to them outright lying about me. Then what happened earlier today taught me, to just ignore anyone with Silverspar in their name.
Who ever this person is, is responsible for running off many great posters who were trying to help improve co. Honest question Castegyre, has this person always been this ignorant?
Anyone who wants to see the exchange can look at this url https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JciZoOKWWYg, look for a post with phoenixPslence.
Back to topic, I do enjoy having the twins, I am trying to go vary slowly, so I can have them as my "boss" level pets for my mastermind :)

I would say they're exceptionally arrogant. Anything that goes against their opinions or narrative they seem to feel a compulsion to tear down. Yes, for as long as I've been aware of them they have been that way. I first became aware of them I believe when CoV was beta in some discussions there. Later my wife, myself, and a couple of people we hung out with on Virtue all had similar run-ins with them. They all ended badly with Silverspar basically trying to impose themselves on others. I've avoided them successfully in CO, but I've run into them in other places like the pre-launch forums for SWTOR. It's never ended well.

Thank you for answering my question :), Very true, people should stay far away from Silverspar. Never knew the extent how far that person would go, to belittle someone and say the person who offers a point of view they might not share as, being wrong in some way.

If silverspar has been this way for that long, I guess whoever they must be must be a narcissist from everyones description and what happened.

I guess we can all agree that it's indeed, best to avoid a true troll and never give them the attention they crave.  So....

.....Lets talk of the positive about CO yes?

*Raises an imaginary glass for an imaginary toast*

To Xev, the man who can look past the issues.

To Brou who can always brighten the mood of everyone :).

To the friends new and old, of those not tainted by the evils of the old community.

Maybe in a few weeks, I'll give CO another shot for a short time.

LA that is a very nice compliment. It kinda surprised me. I have to do this every single day. What you said.

I can't imagine that I'll ever stop playing CO for as long as we're both around. I won't stop playing any games I luv. It's just not my first luv right now.

CO will always be my main or backup. CO is awesome. It has a good core playerbase that I was a bad boy and never really joined and then up and left. I always feel kinda bad about that. I didn't play CO to make friends I played it to escape. I have a fair amount of people in CO that I like as people and admire as players but I've always been kinda an outsider. My contribution to the CO community was probably more in the form of speeding queue's along.. hehe.

Silverspar sounds like a pretty good troll! Been going for this long and still gets a reaction from people... They must be pretty good at what they do.. lol. Some people have a REAL talent for it. I got trolled two days ago so bad... well, you wouldn't have said I was so nice if you heard the words very loudly coming out of my mouth. I failed to look past the issues on that one. Failed hard.

I never tried to make CO into CoH. I just wanted a new online game. I think I was as blown away as anyone but the people who had close friends in CoH when it shut down. I mean, I was pretty invested in it. But when it was gone I had to accept that.

For me, it was *amazing* that we had a game with *any* similarities at all to CoH and CO has more than a few.

When I first started playing I didn't know if I was going to like/be good at CO combat but ever since I mind melded with the CO combat system I've only gotten to like the game more and more. Until the nerfs got to me.

The game is good, I've just been waiting for the dust to settle before coming back. The only thing that concerns me is that as long as I have been playing CO they have been nerfing pretty hard - I just hadn't been playing long enough and never got too used to the things they were nerfing until now.

Meanwhile I seem to have contracted CO burnout and am also really getting into STO since awhile.

Well..and... ISP issues keep me from being able to patch both CO and STO so I stopped patching CO about a month ago or so.

I'll never stop playing CO as long as we're both around, tho. <3 CO.

*toasts*

You might get a little tingly feeling while playing in the new Qliphothic  Warzone(coming live soon).

Feels like a RWZ mothership run.

You have been advertising RWZ mothership run promises since I started posting here, Brou!

Like it is the holy grail of CO or something  : p

hehe. You know I just tease.. Not that the point is invalid.... But I am just teasing. In a friendly manner.

My CO is patched btw... I even logged in and had an outer body experience there, yesterday. This is whole other story. Will just say for now, go go CO.  : )

I was logging into CO the other day....

just to confirm that my ISP connection was ruined, for gaming. I'd already tried to log into STO and failed every time. Patches for both games took hours. I only patched them due to... why not. Before I wave goodbye.

So anyway, the CO patch finishes, and, as a formality, call it my tech blood, I log in just to confirm that I can't log in. But... I can! Not only can I, but, my connection seems ok. No, wait, it seems good. Let me run some Alurts... No, it seems to be Really good, and, upon running my second test Alurt, where I got boss agro until the last pixel like a pr0h even tho I hadn't even logged in for 59 days I received a ':)' from the first CO player I ever talked to.

So that was pretty cool.

So I am back, too! But, with a : D

Not playing so much until I figure out how to manage my data limits and STO's big patches. It's going to be hard to steal me away from STO for awhile but I'm sure glad I can still play CO when I want to. We all know what it's like to lose our Internet gaming, hmmmmm?

I was logging into CO the other day....

just to confirm that my ISP connection was ruined, for gaming. I'd already tried to log into STO and failed every time. Patches for both games took hours. I only patched them due to... why not. Before I wave goodbye.

So anyway, the CO patch finishes, and, as a formality, call it my tech blood, I log in just to confirm that I can't log in. But... I can! Not only can I, but, my connection seems ok. No, wait, it seems good. Let me run some Alurts... No, it seems to be Really good, and, upon running my second test Alurt, where I got boss agro until the last pixel like a pr0h even tho I hadn't even logged in for 59 days I received a ':)' from the first CO player I ever talked to.

So that was pretty cool.

So I am back, too! But, with a : D

Not playing so much until I figure out how to manage my data limits and STO's big patches. It's going to be hard to steal me away from STO for awhile but I'm sure glad I can still play CO when I want to. We all know what it's like to lose our Internet gaming, hmmmmm?
Welcome back :)

Tyvm. I'm getting the twitch after logging in the other day to a nice connection. Still have to sort out my data limit problems.. Switching back to CO would fix them easy. But. I have like 6 more months, at least, of STO plans that I'm in the middle of.

So much to game.. So little data!

What would probably be smartest for me would be to only patch STO once or twice a month... But I don't play with the smart side of my brain!

Errr.

I mean..

The warzone is live, if you're wondering.

What I am wondering is why... why is it you know about the Sorcery update and Warzone and never even dropped a teaser here. This is what I was wondering the whole time I was running through Purple Andrith.

I'm also wondering why there was Zero interest in Warzone in /Rampagers. The channel that is supposed to be for new content devourers, as well as Rampages.

I've been wondering alright. Wondering... wondering.

I didn't have to wonder if Warzone was live, tho. I got an e-mail. From PWE.

This stuff went straight to Live without hitting the PTS first?

Hmmm...

I couldn't believe that the first major update to hit CO since at least... 4 years? was met with such an unspectacular welcome when I logged in last night. I mean, a whole new outdoor zone filled with level 45 mobs - two things never seen before since I started playing after CoH shutdown - and.... Nothing. No interest at all. There were only like 10 people even in Zone when I was there.

I mean.. at first I was like... DAMN I wish I wouldn't have just downloaded that STO update! Because I AM back! Something NEW! And high-end yummy. I was even halfway excited like a kid at Christmas eve. The first time I faceplanted I was like, YES! I actually have to think..

But then the only response to my excitement in Rampagers was ... 'Queue LI'. And then I go to Warzone and next to nothing is going on. And then I come here and get "Warzone is live, if you're wondering"

Oh, feeeeeel the excitement..

I actually went back and played STO... like an hour after I downloaded the largest update in CO's post CoH history. That's sad.

The loot is sad, too. Any group of mobs that can make me faceplant should drop more than loot that drops eeeeeeeverywhere.

Ball, dropped.

I will say, though.. CO could teach STO something about patching. STO can change the nail polish color on a green Orion slave girl NPC and it's a 600 meg download. CO just added a whole new zone and I downloaded like 100 meg.

Which? The major Sorcery update or the entirely new zone? Both?

We're just finding out about them, here.

The stuff has been on PTS for a while as Brou said.


There was also a teaser about the new zone a few months back.


I've got several magic-themed toons I'm going to have to retcon now thanks to the magic changes. I have to decide which ones might be worth going for a more dps approach with the new powers.

I'm just giving Brou a hard time because I know how long he's been.... 'haunting' this forum. And I also know he has a LOT of CO knowledge.

Some things I Think about Brou... He must really like the game. He must be pretty good at it. He must be up to date with what is going on with it.

I wouldn't *know* these things, though, because I have to guess. He only 'hauntingly' posts.


Rather than just 'haunt' us. Why not BE us...

You Are...

I'm just saying.

Ya know?

And now I finally let it go after... how many years. I hope you get it and I hope (hehe) KA does too. KA is good people. Too. He had the gloves off and was ready to go rounds for ya! As is his nature...  : )

By the way.. The Sorcery revamp, which has been sorely needed due to Sorcery could use all the help it could get, And, Warzone, did not make it to my e-mail. I've not been downloading updates for awhile so I didn't read it there either. I just found out about this stuff... Last night?

Anyway.

I'll probably try Purple Andrith again in just a little bit and will definitely be looking into rolling up a new Sorcery toon. I'm up for WZ teamage. Just tossing that out there.

Pretty close to 60 with my first STO Warbird, too... Geek Heaven weekend.

Sorry for giving you a hard time about wanting you around more, Brou. Last time, promised.

So, now I was able to get my perminate sk, great I thought. Wrong in practice, why, because it only HAS a 15 min charge. Before it was despawened and then suffers a 5 min recharge. To charge $15 for it is bulls#$%, this was suppose to be my final pet, such as a the boss pet for masterminds.

You don't want your devices to be too good anyway, you know. Otherwise they'll make "The List".

That is true, however, looking at the temp sks, they can be out for the duration of the item. I just don't see why the devs did not do this for something that cost much more money.

You must reeeeeead, Angel. (This is the Z-Store description they give you before you buy. The AE description is similar/same).



I just bought an electric skillet. It's Teflon coated and advertises all over the box that it's 7 times more durable than standard Teflon coated pans. I had the thing 2 weeks and I can't even cook an egg in it. I often wonder, what could be 7x worse than this.

Sometimes even when you read they get you.

----------

I dug up My CO ripoff. It didn't cost me any money and wasn't that big of a deal but... don't buy these. They don't work. Can't equip.

You might get a little tingly feeling while playing in the new Qliphothic  Warzone(coming live soon).

Feels like a RWZ mothership run.

While Angel has me here... I must mention, QWZ does tingle me but it's nothing like RWZ to me except that it's a high level zone and has similar initials.

I will admit, that I did not read the description , I just looked for the sk I wanted and bought it.

I was just looking at sidekicks in the AE a few days ago or so. One of my builds has an open device slot ...now.. and sidekicks seem to do good there. Sidekicks are pretty tough even before considering they're clickies. Pulled out Indy Kid in QWZ and expected him to get insta-shredded but he held his own surprisingly well. Added some free dps. He was very well behaved too. Just came in kicking when I needed him.
