OP  10/11/07 12:12:46 AM#1

Last week, we brought you an interview with Matt "Positron" Miller about the upcoming Issue 11 update from City of Heroes / Villains. Today, the folks behind the game have provided us with the story behind the new weapon customization that will make an appearance in Issue 11.

One of the most often requested features for the “City Of” games is power customization. We already offer some of the most extensive costume customization of any MMO on the market, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg for what our players desire. They want the ability to customize every single bit of their character, including how their powers look.

Unfortunately, the animation and effects system that City of Heroes was built on didn’t lend itself well to customizing power blasts or altering the color of the fire attacks. Numerous powers have baked-in elements that would require a nearly insurmountable effort to get power customization to work at the level our players have come to expect. When faced with this fact, we decided that we would much rather devote the animation and effects time into new powers and new effects than going back over older powers and giving them a purely cosmetic facelift.

When it came to adding new powers to the game, Jack Emmert, the Creative Director at Cryptic Studios, suggested that we poll the players to find out what they wanted in the way of powers. We knew we wanted to do a melee set and a defensive set so that the melee archetypes (Tankers, Scrappers, Brutes, and Stalkers) could get some much needed love. When we reviewed the results of the polls, the defensive set that the players wanted the most was Shields.

Read the whole article here.

Cheers,

Should be a nice addition, I like that they keep making the game better, as opposed to nerfing, which some game companies are in a habbit of doing...

For the record, they've done more than their share of nerfing in the game as well. ;)  Ask any old timers who play(ed) invuln tankers, fire blasters, controllers (levitation skill primarily).  It's good to see they don't nerf as much as they used to, but don't fool yourself into thinking they never have and still don't - the nerfs are still there in during patches but luckily they've mostly ironed out the imbalances so they're fewer than most games.

Now if NCsoft would just stop adding state tax to the monthly subscription charges I'd happily be back.

I can't wait to ditch my Battle Axe for the Rikti Axe on my Tank.

This Weapon Customization is a great addition to the game.

That's your STATE forcing them to charge it. Not NCSoft. Take that up w/ your state rep.

I can't wait to put the Carnival Mallet on my tank... works PERFECTLY with him (he's a freakin' clown!!)... though I'll have to remake him, but it's not that bad, he's still fairly new

Yeah taxes are the State's fault, NCSoft has no say in that. 

Some are still upset over the "nerf" to enhancements waaaayyy back when.  No more 6 damage slotting, you actually have to diversify and think about what you do.  Since then, the "nerfs" have been rather light by comparison to other games.  I know some got upset over the changes to Stealth, but overall it really didn't affect my Stalker or Scrapper w/Concealment that much.

Good thing I saved up costume tokens, looks like I'll be burning quite a few tweaking all my weapons.  Plus I need another char slot for my DB <whatever>.

I'm not very familiar with CoH (done a trial long time ago), so I'm missing something here.

Are they informing everybody that you will be able to have a weapon in your hand, which will look differently depending on its kind? This is really, really great. I cannot think about any other game which would allow such degree of weapon customization... Imagine being able to recognize if somebody is dual wielding daggers or 2h axe by just looking at avatar...

On the other hand, I think that Runescape has something similar - but it is still unbeaten as far as 3d graphics are concerned. All other MMORPGs should learn from Runescape (and soon CoH).

 

Trolling aside, I hope they will improve the graphics - what can be seen in screenshots is plain ugly.

I think you could probably change the weapon at the tailor shop.  No need to remake your character.

What they are doing revinor is making it so if you have a Broadsword Scrapper you can change how your sword looks.  You'll be able to go to any tailor to change this when it comes out.  They did say, however, that some models will be unlockables by defeating certain enemies.  So if you really wanted one you could have the Rikti Sword too.

It might sound really silly, I have not subbed to CoH since half a year after release... But this is the kind of thing that makes me want to subscribe again... I can build my own hero!! With the things I want him to use!! There is love in that.

BZZZT! Incorrect!  Nice try though - how many people who've been telling me this in response actually know what they're talking about? /boggle

 

For starters, look all the other MMO companies with their MAIN offices located in California or Texas.  Now look at how many of them add state sales tax to the monthly fees..oh that's right none of them do!  Now look at NCsoft who recently opened a small office in those state - yep they're the only ones doing it.

Now before you repeat your false statement above, let me tell you that I did call my state tax board, and talked to a representative about it.  It's a grey area, they are not required to do it.  Why NCsoft feels the need to be the only MMO company to do so is beyond me, but the fact that they dropped it on us unnanounced and fail to even mention it during any account setup and/or game activation has to make one take pause.  I did alert the IRS though and suggested they make sure all the income from those tax charges are going to the state and not NCsoft's pockets.

But I digress, this is not the topic for this and I apologize for derailing it.

 

The customization looks really nice, and though I never enjoyed a character with a weapon, I am hoping they eventully get to power customization - even if it's only in "new" powers.

There is no real weapons in COH, so i'm guessing this right, these weapons are just for show right?

Some of the powersets utilize weapons.  One set of the Blaster Archetype is Assault Rifle, another is Bow and Arrows.

Scrappers have broadsword and katana I believe, and Tankers have Mace and Hammers as a choice of power sets.

I'm not very familiar with the Villian side though, but I'd suspect they have similar.

Actually, that's just other MMOs willing to eat the costs and NCsoft isn't willing. They're also covernig their asses in an aduit. Anyway, it's a $1.99. BFD.
