Cryptic's Rob Overmeyer has penned the January edition of the Champions Online Producer's Letter. In it, Overmeyer talks about all of the things that the team has implemented over the last month as well as takes a look ahead at what 2012 will bring.
From what Overmeyer has written, 2012 will see some significant improvements in the game including a completely new crafting system.
This includes a review of every item, reward, device, piece of gear, etc. you can find or earn in Champs. When complete we will not only have better items in the game that are desirable, but we will have a better itemization and reward system that can grow with the game. This update will also introduce a variety of new items and item types.
An improved item system cannot use our current crafting system so we are developing an enhancement system as a replacement. This system would allow you to further improve your items and offer greater character customization.
Read the very detailed letter on the Champions Online site.
Thanks to Rohn for the tip!
