-snip- I'm an idiot. There's already a thread on this somewhere by the way.
There are some old threads, but it seems like all of the OPs have managed to get themselves permabanned or the OP hasn't been updated in years Might as well have a new thread if he's going to update it
I tried each of the free classes they offer to Silver players, and didn't enjoy how they worked very all. I loved playing as Power Armor immensely back in the beta, but it's only available to Gold members, and I don't want to pay for something in a free to play game in order to enjoy it. Maybe if some of my friends decided to jump in, and we made a huge group, then I could see getting a 2-month card or so, but right now, I don't think I can see myself jumping in.
Had an account from when I beta tested it. Figured I'd give it a whirl, and converted the character I liked the least to silver level. After the fact, it looked like he got mugged in an alleyway and they took everything he owned, including his clothes. Seriously, 3/4 of the stuff I had is premium. Quick trip to the tailor fixed that issue, but I wish they'd let you re edit your hero when converting, or at least show you what will be lost when you do so. Certainly was a bit of a shock when it happened, and I've gonna wait on converting my good one till I get some money to set him up proper(earning atari points ingame would be nice though) So far though, I am enjoying the game quite a bit, and the cash shop stuff doesnt seem to over the top.
I had a shit load of fun customizing my character, then left after I started playing. The UI was just too disorganized and I couldn't tell left from right.
The playerbase is primarily composed of either demons, scalies, or furries. It's just too much man; I want to see a genuine looking hero for once

Here I am trying to make a casual-looking or soldier female that isn't focused on being sexy, and the only actual 'pants' are either tights or bike shorts. There's barely any actual shirts as well, and they're so thin they might as well be tights instead. :colbert:
It's the one free mmo that I've enjoyed in awhile, feels like I can ignore most of the cash store except for the adventure packs, which I might buy in the future.
[QUOTE=DrKinkyKinkles;30489702] [IMG]http://i.imgur.com/svKya.png[/IMG] Lots of customizing available...[/QUOTE] [media]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ztVMib1T4T4[/media] it had to be done
We should form a facepunch invasion of genuine looking heroes and beat the crap out of the furries and scalies. :bandwagon:
I'd play again if we can organize a nice super hero guild
Played before it went F2P, had myself a sweet force type character that could jump insane distances. Customization is huge. Was stupidly unbalanced though, fucking teleportation in arenas......
[quote]-You can buy "Atari Points" (the game's currency) using your Steam wallet.[/quote] Would that be like buying ISK in Eve or gold in WoW? Or is it more like the Nexon Cash for cosmetic items in Maplestory?
My character is an undead pirate... I'm not sure if that's superhero-like, but shit, I think it's badass.
[QUOTE=Harry3;30520684]Played before it went F2P, had myself a sweet force type character that could jump insane distances. Customization is huge. Was stupidly unbalanced though, fucking teleportation in arenas......[/QUOTE] Rank 3 Tunneling says hello.
Wait a second, only Gold members are able to actually choose which powers they will use? Is everyone else stuck with the default archetypes?
Is the PvP in this still absolutely disgusting? I remember seeing 2 guys duel each other in the main city and watching that fight was probably the most amazing thing I've ever watched as far as MMO's go... It was better and more awesome than actual Hero vs Villain fights from movies. But you get into a PvP arena and it's just Fly around and use ranged powers. People who use Melee are completely fucked, people who don't have a flying travel power are double fucked, and it's just horrible
[QUOTE=The Alert;30520955]Would that be like buying ISK in Eve or gold in WoW? Or is it more like the Nexon Cash for cosmetic items in Maplestory?[/QUOTE] I haven't played any of those games. Basically if you don't have Atari points you're fucked, as a lot of things like travel powers are restricted. And if you're not paying for a gold account every month you're especially fucked. The big sell of the game was to create your own personalized hero, yet with a free account that only goes as far as appearance. Customization of powers and types of heros are gold only.

What was the steam bonus for this? Can i still get it?

The only thing I see myself buying is the Jet Boots travel power when I hit level 35.

It has to be said, I spent about an hour last night just in the customization screen. Game doesn't seem that bad.
I am serious about making a facepunch group of genuine heroes and trolling the animal people. Who's up for it?
[QUOTE=TheGronk;30559810]I am serious about making a facepunch group of genuine heroes and trolling the animal people. Who's up for it?[/QUOTE] I would definitely join. We also need a supergroup (or team or whatever it is named) ingame.
I have a character from a year ago, but I can't convert him to silver. The ok option is greyed out, whether or not I select a new archtype.
I'm up for a Facepunch clan, but lets not let it die, people give up on this game so quick :(
