[editline]30th January 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=Raidyr;27749366]If it's anything like beta (which it very well may not be, as so many things have changed) there are no DR's on PVP CC. so if you are unlucky you can become stuck indefinitely.[/QUOTE] And yeah, the whole match was me being perma stunned OR perma juggled until I die.
So I'm looking at this game and I'm wondering whether or not to try it. I've been playing City of Heroes for a long time now and despite how much I love it it's really starting to get old to me. I suppose my main question is, what does the game feel like? How does it play? Does it feel like WoW, or some other MMO, or is it unique? I couldn't get into Champions because it felt too much like World of Warcraft to me.
It feels like a mix between WoW and a action game, with a twist of Crackdown (the travel powers).

You still get abilities, but your main form of attacking is through different combos you can do. PvP is all about blocking and interrupting, it takes a lot of skill especially in solo fights.

So apart from CE edition buddy keys, there is no visible free trial for this is there?
I wish I chose Flying over superspeed
[QUOTE=GhettoGeek;27766255]I wish I chose Flying over superspeed[/QUOTE] Why? Everyone chooses flying. Its boring and overused.
[QUOTE=GhettoGeek;27766255]I wish I chose [B]Acrobatics[/B] over superspeed[/QUOTE] I fixed it for you.
[QUOTE=Nohj;27766348]Why? Everyone chooses flying. Its boring and overused.[/QUOTE] Because it's the most useful.
[QUOTE=Raidyr;27766757]Because it's the most useful.[/QUOTE] Hardly. Please explain how it is more useful than any other?
Being able to control your verticality at will without relying on nearby structures is huge in world PVP. Acrobatics is close behind though with its Rocket Glide. Super Speed is just awful for everyone but theme builders.

Reminds me of CoD how everyone uses the same weapons because they have small advantages that really dont matter at all when you go up against a good player.
It's not like I am sacrificing my fun to do better in a game. And yes PVP is all that matters to people who don't find fun beating AI drones to death like it was Everquest.
you are missing the point of playing this. It is DC. The game was made for story, and therefore it was made for playing against bots. If you wanted a pvp centered game go to Global Agenda or some other MMO. There is no reason to regret choosing one power over another.
I have a level 85 Undead Warlock if I want to PVE, in a much better game for PVE as well. Stop getting upset about people who strive to improve themselves.

You seem to be doing everything backwards here.
[QUOTE=Nohj;27768010]Stop getting so upset at a string of text on the internet. Why pve when you are max level in WoW? Thats when you go pvp. You seem to be doing everything backwards here.[/QUOTE] Yes, in WoW we do all the end game raiding when we're levelling...
[QUOTE=Nohj;27768010]Stop getting so upset at a string of text on the internet. Why pve when you are max level in WoW? Thats when you go pvp. You seem to be doing everything backwards here.[/QUOTE] Why would anyone not do PvE at max level in WoW? That's the only part that takes any skill.
So...any good ideas for an expansion? Though I predict the first one to be free.
Where can I buy level 12 weapons? I want to try out dual blade (Villain in Gotham)
just played one of those legend arenas and everyone else was level 30, while I'm level 12. What the fuck?
The level doesn't give any advantage over you in legends arena, in legends everyone has the same stats
Then why the hell couldn't I do any damage to anyone?
[QUOTE=sp00ks;27779809]Then why the hell couldn't I do any damage to anyone?[/QUOTE] Because you are bad at PvP?
What the hell are we supposed to do in the arena. I'm doing Australia and all I do is run around capture the buildings and wait for the time. Theres no one to fight? I thought fighting was the point of arenas
[QUOTE=sp00ks;27779809]Then why the hell couldn't I do any damage to anyone?[/QUOTE] You may have been victim of exploits. I know that right now like 90% of the PVP is exploit users, there's a SHITLOAD of exploits, ranging from attack animation cancels which gives you the ability to do like 20 attacks in 1 attack which means ALOT of damage at once/instant death, from taking barely any damage, to being permanently stunned and juggled with until you die. Honestly right now the PVP is a mess and I wouldn't bother until it's fixed.

Wow that is so ridiculously awesome, it's getting hard to hold off buying this game. I'll request a buddy code again incase someone has one, please thanks.
The problem with the endgame content is half the instances are broken and/or empty and you need to have a very high dominance level for them too, particularly for the raids. Once the queuing system is fixed, it should be a lot better.
