Heroes are about character - not gear.

It sounds like the game just wasn't for you. Honestly before it went F2P, I considered it my favorite MMORPG of all time, and I don't even like the superhero genre. It was definitely worth paying for, IMO.

More proliferation of powersets, an updated graphics engine, and three color choices during costume design - I'd resub.

I miss the MMORPG genre. Will a developer ever make one again?

Well, you'll at least get one of those three things (hint: it's the one that doesn't involve redoing the character database or graphics engine).

Don't get me wrong, I'd be all for a re-do of the graphics engine and more costume color options would be nice (but honestly probably require a hefty revamp of the current costume choices). I just don't think it's likely to happen any time soon (especially now that it's 'FTP'). Heck, I'd love to see more costume piece locations to allow asymetrical costumes, but I know that's not going to happen unless someone comes up with a code miracle.

Let go of my ears, I know what I'm doing!

I get ALMOST the same thing.  HD5770 and I get half the frame rate of, say, LotRO DX11, or the new Deus Ex.

Still like the game, though.  The power enhancement system is still leaps and bounds over CO and DCUO.

Dealing with 2 things would make it a far better game:

-Get rid of the caves.  ALL OF THEM.  Especially the Circle of Thorns ones.  Frustrating and headache inducing.

-Can we PLEASE have a 1 or 2 mob lenience on the "kill all mobs" missions?  So often I find myself having to reset the mission because it claims I haven't wiped them out when I have.  I've run around everywhere trying to induce aggro on that last SOB whereever they are, yet they never come out.  Yes, I know you can complete missions automatically every 4-5 days...

"As you think, so shall you become"

I tried the free client with a friend, we played two villians up to lvl 18. We liked the game alot and since the classes we wanted to play (Mastermind and Controller) were VIP archetypes, we went ahead and subscribed.

She loves that she can Summon Demons and I am doing Plant Control whch allows me to root, confuse, heal, sleep, and damage enemies. We played WoW for 3 years, got burned out, played LOTRO for a few months and liked it, but I couldn't bear the combat, armor/weapon look, and tedious kill/gather quests.

I saw that CoH was free now and downloaded it, installed and started playing. Let me just say that this is funnest combat imo in any MMO. Sure standard missions seem to be repetive, the interesting ones to me are Mayhem Missions and Story Arcs, but the combat has been a blast.

If I was trying to solo as Plant Control, I could see myself getting frustrated as all my damage is in the form of DoTs, so it would be slow, but having a team mate changes everything. I would say if your trying the game out, try to get into a group with someone asap. Even if you dont have the same mission/quest, you can still get exp and bonuses, not only that but higher lvl characters can side kick you, which basically  makes you one level less than the other player, so if hes 50 you will be lvl 49.

As far as the combat goes, it is pretty standard tab target and use skills, but there are AoE knockbacks which send enemies flying, the spell effects are flashy and the animations are fluid, instead of having a cast bar, you have "activation time" which is nice because you can be moving around and hit your skill, your character stops moving, casts the spell and keeps moving, you dont have to stand still while casting as in other MMO's. You can fly and use all your skills, and this isnt on a mount your character actually flies.

I like persistent buff effects, when I cast a buff on a player you always have a visual representation of the buff floating/swiriling around the player, which makes your character look even cooler. I hate games where you cast a buff like "Barkskin" and your characters skin doesnt actually turn into bark visually.

Havent had a chance to PvP, but im sure its going to be fast paced and fun especially with all the movement skills.

I also like that you dont have to worry about upgrading your armor stats, only your skill stats. I designed a costume that I thought was epic looking, I even have a Toxic Vapor anime power up style aura on me.

I look forward to taking on hard content in full size groups and to PvP. I am still looking for a Super Group for me and my gf to join, but every time I ask in /help I get no responses....

If your looking for something you can play casually while waiting for Diablo 3 and GW2, this should tide you over. Its so feature rich and the setting is fresh, find a friend quickly as its 10 times more fun in a group than solo.

Glad you're enjoying it - welcome to the game!  PvP has been kind of shoe-horned into the game and then neglected -- some have hope for it, but we'll see.

It definitely heats up the CPU more than other games for me.  Other games barely touch the CPU temp and just heat up the GPU.  CoX on the other hand, heats up the CPU and barely touches the GPU.

Older games like Everquest 2 and CoH tend to use more CPU resources than GPU. I guess that GPUs sucked more than 7 years ago, so graphics were designed to be more CPU intensive.

Don't most games go F2P quicker than 8 years? I wasn't there at launch, but only because I knew I would more time playing than doing homework. I have 7 anniversary badges and have kept a constant subscription--even when I was living abroad with an internet connection so slow I couldn't stream YouTube videos. 

The less you expect, the more you'll be surprised. Hopefully, pleasantly so.
