whats the chances of me getting a trial code from one of you guys :D
Unless someone bought the retail copy and didn't already spent his buddy codes... not very high I'm afraid. :frown: It's silly that you don't get buddy codes if you buy it off steam or D2D.
[QUOTE=SomeDumbShit;27560869]What did you guys do in your early level 20's? I've ran out of level appropriate missions..[/QUOTE] I never ran our of quests while leveling. Before you do the quests that are appropriate for your level (quest maybe 1 or 2 levels over yours) do the ones that are lower. I usually finish the quests that are blue before I continue.
Out of all the superpowers I've tried so far, gadgets seems like the worst. I've also noticed that each superpower's different specs correspond to long range and melee fighting.
hng 90% then probably a patch :froggonk:
Have anyone tried both this and Champions Online and can anyone tell me which is better?
I've tried the trial for Champions a while back, and I can't say I bothered with it for very long after I was done creating my character. DCUO might not be perfect (balance issues, fairly repetitive quests, etc) but there are a lot of things to make up for it. :keke:
I spent ages making my characters in Champions but was bored with the game itself in a few hours.
I'm quite liking gadgets so far, it's certainly weaker than the other powers I tried but I like a challenge. :haw:
ffffff having trouble getting my 30 day trial. I bought it from steam and it's being an ass, it activated and stuff but can't find where to get the trial. [editline]21st January 2011[/editline] [QUOTE=sp00ks;27568442]Have anyone tried both this and Champions Online and can anyone tell me which is better?[/QUOTE] Champions online gets boring quickly and with it going F2P, it's going to shit. [editline]21st January 2011[/editline] Finally got my trial. Had to subscribe.

[QUOTE=Rong;27563393]Nope, you can't use your travel powers while in combat. But they're some skills that are related to them. Those you can use.[/QUOTE] You can use travel powers in combat. I was using flight and used the ice power that pulls people towards you to pull a guy off a rooftop, then I smashed him down to the ground at street level. He nearly died from the damage. [QUOTE=sp00ks;27568442]Have anyone tried both this and Champions Online and can anyone tell me which is better?[/QUOTE] Not really comparable, their combat systems are quite different. Champions gives you more control over your power selections but DCU has a more active combat system. Think of DCU as a watered down Devil May Cry with dice roll hits, while Champions is the more traditional MMO hammer on power bar type of combat (though Champions does mix it up a bit with the way they use the powers). Also in DCU, you get your travel power at the very beginning.
How is ranged combat?
[QUOTE=sp00ks;27572189]How is ranged combat?[/QUOTE] You will get some more interesting moves as you level up but for the most part, you aim at a guy and start right clicking. If you don't like having to aim, you can just mouse over him and then lock on with TAB. The hits are based on defense/attack/dice rolls anyway, so your own personal accuracy makes no difference.
Finally got it downloaded, halfway through making my character and fucking servers die. :gonk: [editline]22nd January 2011[/editline] Update is Live. :neckbeard:
Anyone got a spare buddy code
I just got the same quest chain that I already completed last night. Free XP I guess.
I hate the pvp in the game atm Fire and Ice are so incredibly overpowered its silly especially fire....... plus im playing as gadgets which is just plain crappy i mean half the gadgets miss all the time.
[QUOTE=Source;27576840]I hate the pvp in the game atm Fire and Ice are so incredibly overpowered its silly especially fire....... plus im playing as gadgets which is just plain crappy i mean half the gadgets miss all the time.[/QUOTE] as a tech bow I beat the shit out of every fire I saw. Its not op.

[/QUOTE] No, I was talking about really [i]using[/i] them to travel. You can't go fullspeed while in combat.
[QUOTE=Rong;27577022]No, I was talking about really [i]using[/i] them to travel. You can't go fullspeed while in combat.[/QUOTE] because thats unfair. What im getting hurt? I guess I will just superspeed away.
i just think there's huge inconsistencies between the classes/weps and the knockback stuns they have i get that its meant to be different but some trees clearly have a huge advantage i mean i got beat by a brawler who just spammed the basic charge and stunned me every time i used block/breakout but to no avail. i get the game is new and it takes a while to iron out the problems like any mmo but its just frustrating.
-Audio: Audio should no longer drop after cutscenes if you have your Music volume set to 0. Fucking. Finally.
yeah audio was a pain mine still keeps cutting out with weapon sounds after cutscenes tho and the bass on the cutscene's for me is insane! it makes my speakers vibrate like crazy ( and its on low on the speakers :S )

[QUOTE=Source;27576840]I hate the pvp in the game atm Fire and Ice are so incredibly overpowered its silly especially fire.......[/QUOTE] What about them makes them OP?
[QUOTE=PsiSoldier;27579153]What about them makes them OP?[/QUOTE] Fire has self heals, and still puts out a lot of damage, and this is while in tank spec. Not sure about ice.
Whats a good fire spec for PvEing? More specificially just doing hard alerts and raiding? I'm dual swords but can respec if needed.
[QUOTE=Deac;27579206]Fire has self heals, and still puts out a lot of damage, and this is while in tank spec. Not sure about ice.[/QUOTE] That sounds pretty cool. Is it possible to respec from, say, ice to fire? (self heals would suit me as a solo player)
[QUOTE=PsiSoldier;27579710]That sounds pretty cool. Is it possible to respec from, say, ice to fire? (self heals would suit me as a solo player)[/QUOTE] I think you can only respec weapon choices.
