Why City of Heroes Should Be Worried -

In a feature over at MMOSite, writer Cecil Adkins examines why the folks at Paragon Studios should be worried about their upcoming competition in Champions Online.

The article breaks down the reasons into a few points:

  1. Champions online is new and shiny
  2. The issues surrounding the implementation of the Mission Architect has left a bad taste in many users' mouths.
  3. City of Heroes PvP is still "a mess".
  4. Cryptic Studios has had the opportunity to utilize hindsight in their development of City of Heroes to hopefully not repeat the same mistakes in Champions Online, as well as directly cater to the needs of new players who aren't getting what they want out of City of Heroes.
  5. The Nemesis System.
  6. Updates to City of Heroes have been slow-going.

For an insightful read, check out the full piece over at MMOSite.
