    anyone still fighting/causing crime these days? i've gone back to coh with my very first toon, dark angsty man, a claws regen scrapper, and have been doing a little bit with him. got as far as integration so he's starting to look kinda hard, and i finally re-specced pinky into a post-ed toon. so long perma-hasten, goodbye 6 slotted hover, au-revoir lots of my damage potential.

    Not played for a while as I've maxed Wartorn to 40 and really want I7 to turn up, could do with going back to Paragon and getting the Silvery one up to his epics though.

    today being the 2 year anniversary of CoH going live stateside an with I7 just around the corner, positron has just made a bit of an announcement about the game's future, this bit looked interesting to me
    Issue 8 will also bring with it the Veterans' Reward system. This will allow us to give out special thank-you gifts to our players based on the number of months they have been subscribed. These gifts will range from costume pieces to powers to base items and beyond. You don't even have to do anything to get them, other than keeping an active account.
    :)

    info in full here

    I haven't had time to look at CoX today, is I7 just for CoV or is there stuff for CoH in there as well?

    Am interested to see what the updates are to it all..

    Mostly for CoV but there's obviously Recluse's Victory which is a PVP zone set in Atlas Park, Arachnos and Freedom Corp fight over a dimensional rift that's there.

    If Arachnos take all the control points the globe in front of City Hall isn't being held up by Atlas... :-)

    On the CoV front of course there's the 41-50 levels, patron powers, mayhem missions, Grandville etc.

    As a Mastermind I noticed how much quicker the second tier upgrade now is! At least twice as fast as before which means my mission startup time is so much lower now. Fantastic.

    There's also some UI changes in the way powers stack and insps that are about to time out now flash which is nice.

    Didn't try out too much but did take out a fair amount of heroes with my band of mercs and was doing extremely well until the heroes banded together and half a dozen came after me.

    Typical hero cowards! ;-)

    Um, don't know if anyone's still playing this, but this is a call for help!

    I've got two missions - one is to defeat an elite boss called Lilithu, and the other, where i have to steal the tears of the gods (i think) which culminates in a lvl 40 Arch Villain.

    If anyone still has an active sub with a high level character, can you lend a hand? Please?!
    I'm so close to 40 (level 38.8!), but i'm not going to get there without completing these missions.

    What say you?

    Heh, i'll be about after 9 ish tonight? If not, tomorrow a little earlier.

    I think we'd manage lilithu between us, but i'm not sure a 38 and a 40 would be able to take down a 40 Arch Villain, would we? Even with 13 minions...
    Actually, when you put it like that, BRING IT ON! :)

    I'd love to help, but seeing as I'm so low that I'll probably die just looking at the miss! :D

    I presume this is CoV and not CoH?

    If its CoV then its a shame as I won't be able to help, but may be mugged by you if I go anywhere near a PvP zone ;)

    Aye, CoV, soz. Just buy it! it's great!

    And Daisy, you may be able to help depending on whether Whizzo brings his MM (in which case i'll be able to lackey you) or if he brings his brute, in which case i'll have to lackey him.
    I'd be happier with another 40... Nuttah? Kalel? Either of you still play?

    Well I can bring Wartorn along and lackey Daisy's character to 39, plus I've got Recall Friend so getting her to the door will be a cinch.

    For any other masterminds around, you'll appreciate one thing about I7 more than anything else : 2nd tier upgrades are half as long a recharge as they were before! My downtime on summoning on test is so short now! :-D

    Oh God, is that true?! FANTASTIC!
    I get to the end of most of my missions before i've upgraded all of my minions!

    Go I7! (Any news on when it's officially released?)

    I already have bought it, its just that I have 50 fever with my main toon so haven't looked at the CoV characters too much so far. I think my highest is only about 16 or so...

    *another bump*

    Well Whizzo and I managed one of the missions last night, thanks to a handy fight between a hero and an AV, leaving us with only one to deal with.
    We did however get our arses handed to us quite thoroughly by the bitch that is the level 40 Arch Villain Ice Mistral.

    2 masterminds, 13 minions all dead within a minute with less than a tenth of her health gone.
    I think we're gonna need a bigger boat.
    So again, if any of the high levellers are still around and have an active account please lend us a hand!

    fraid i'm only playing coh these days. my villains are nowhere near high enough levels to be of any use.

    still, i7 is in the pre-load phase on live now, so release can't be that far off :)

    You can always be lackeyed!

    see how crap i am at keeping up with eg threads these days.

    anyway. lackeying is good and all, but there is firstly the problem of can you even get to the required place with various zones having level limits, and a lack of travel powers doesn't help either. secondly the bigger problem of lackey up someone really low level to a high level and they only have a couple of powers, with a couple of slots, and only TOs, and probably not even good ones at that, but cos they're TOs they aint worth buying so you just tend to slot what you find. my bestest villain being a low level kinetic means that all my stuff needs tohit rolls. no acc SOs in AV fights means my heals and slows and stuff are never going to be anywhere near reliable enough to be of any value.

    Recall friend is your, er friend, when you're a low leveller remember which isn't the reason my mastermind has it but it's jolly useful.

    Plus there aren't any zone level restrictions in CoV other than Grandville, I think, which is 40 and that place is bloody dangerous anyway.

    furry muff. but then, my not knowing about the zone stuff is proof enough that my villain toons are still too crap to be of any use in high level fights anyway :)

    There is a special event on test soon. all toons, hero or villain, created will be boosted to level 40 for a test of recluse's victory for a few days. think of it as a free way to test out builds you've not been able to make before or see what a low level alt will be like later on :)

    There's plenty of problems with I7 unfortunately, God knows why but it's worse in some aspects than it was when it first launched on test.
