all i can say is woooooooooooooooooooooo

Quote:
Multiple Builds
Another character customisation option and City of Heroes innovation, Issue 13 delivers the ability to have two different build-outs for each character, including which powers are selected and which Enhancements are slotted. With this feature it will now be possible for all characters to diversify their game experience by visiting any Trainer and switching the entire build of their character to an alternate one. You can use this separate build for whatever you like: if you wish to use different power selections for soloing and groups, you can do that. This even makes it possible to have different sets slotted for PVP and PVE. This new system gives characters the added depth and flexibility to tackle any challenge!


and even more wooooooooooooooooooo

Quote:
Levelling Pact
A new innovation to MMOs, this system allows you and a friend to create new characters and have your XP permanently in sync, whether both characters are online or not. You will always be the same level, even if your friend plays ten times more often than you do! It’s sort of like “Extreme Sidekicking.”

Yeah i've just been reading that and came over to post it :mrgreen: You beat me to it!

I like the idea of Multi Builds, will save me having to keep respeccing my Badgehunter :D

The Levelling pact is a sweet idea too, though i don't know if i will ever get to use it. Those with two accounts can now level thier alts to 50 without even logging the alt on!! :shock: I'm a bit surprised at this. My concern is that if i had two accounts (i dont) then i could make two alts and just play one all the way to level 50. The other alt would reach 50 without me ever playing it.... i wouldnt know anything about how best to play that powerset? :? Could this mean we will see lots of level 50's around that have not got experience in playing the power set? 8-[

He he Betty. I just noticed that one (Levelling Pact). It does seem almost extravagent and designed to get people opening second accounts. I can't help wandering at what lvl you can enter into the pact and if/how you change it. It would seem daft and highly illogical to allow a lvl 50 to pact with a new toon so will it only apply to new lvl 1 toons, or within 5 lvls, or something? I hope they've thought that one through but I'm going to look forward to teaming more now! :D

All new features are good in my opinion, however, I'm a bit uneasy about the Level Pack. I always defended CoX against other MMORPGs with its simplicity and easy-playing, but this is getting simplicity to the extreme. I know people can develop PL'd lvl50s within 3 days, but even in that case, there's a little effort spent for the purpose. But now, each 2 account owner (and I'm part 2 account owner with Mono's account) will have a bonus lvl50 everytime they hit lvl50 with one account.

But at the end, this doesn't affect mine or anyone else's game, so I'm ok with it...

Btw, I still expect my personal apartment and mail system in coming issues :)...

post from pohsyb explains how the pact works

Quote:
Here is the gist of how this works, when players enter the leveling pact (level 5 and below) their experience is all flattened to whoever was the lowest. Any incoming experience to any member is effectively split by the member count of the pact (which we are limiting to 2 initially). From that point foward, all members will have the exact same experience and always be the exact same level. If player A logs out and lets player B do all the work, it will take player B twice as long.

The reason I wanted this is because I've started other games with a group of friends, only to have our tight-knit party fall apart because of differing levels of commitment. I imagine I'm not the only person to create an alt for every combination of friends. Hopefully the 2 person pact won't have any serious problems and we will be able to expand it to full team size.

CoH was already amazing for teaming and this is pushing it to a whole new level.
One is very happy! :)

So.... shame it' not team pact... We could create an awesome Intrepids pact team and not worry if someone was on holiday for a week :D

Looking good :)

I really like the Team Pact idea... especially now there are a few more details which indicate to me that they are thinking sensibly about how to avoid exploitation.

It's a shame that it's limited to duo'ing initially, although hopefully it will quickly be expanded. We've often in the Intrepids had our informal 'agreement' teams. With this mechanic expanded to full team size we could do them properly :D

Yep. That's more sensible to half the (or share the duo levelling) but a Team Pact idea would be great. On the other new features I do like the Shield power with an element of team defence. I presume that it not one big mother-f***** of a shield that everyone has to stand behind. :D

Assuming the 2 person pacts work well, the system may be expanded to larger team sizes.


Weeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee! :D

So....Hands up who wants to make a new Intrepids team for regular levelling?
If we plan it now.....we could maybe think of a really cool concept for the characters etc... 8)

Hi Betty/guys,

I could go for that. My preference (still) is villains though. It were a heroes SG how often would we get together and stuff. I could probably only go with Tuesdays - and, of course, we'll need at least i13 if not 14! :D
