The guys at Cryptic have spilled the beans about the Alerts that will be coming to CO (apparently they are on the PTS server right now).

The Alerts will come in three different types: Grab, Smash, and Burst - each having a different setup and objective.  It also appears that a character's Nemesis can appear in an Alert.

Have to wait to play it, but it sounds interesting so far.

Essentially these Alerts are zergfests completely lacking in anything even remotely resembling tactics or teamwork. They can be completed by one or two members of a 5 man team before the rest of the five man team even finishes loading into the map.


Imagine content where you hit the queue button and load in to find a big mob standing in front of you. Thats essentially it with only minor variations.

When all has been said and done, more will have been said than done.
