    Default So, who is getting Champions Online?

    Now that the beta is over and it is heading for full release, who is planning on getting it and who not? Why?


    I found the char creation pretty neat, but the first 3 chars I played, wasn't really fun.

    Yesterday I gave it another go and made a char I really enjoyed and suddenly had a blast.


    So, I am kinda unsure to get it or not.

    I've pre-ordered it and will be playing it once it goes live. Very much enjoyed the Sorcery powerset even if a couple of the attacks weren't working the way they should. Power Armor was also a blast.

    Out of curiosity though Paladin Catling, what powerset did you play that brought you back from the brink?

    Hmm, I played as a gunner and they were realllyyy powerfull

    I just hold 3 and it just does

    bangbangbangbangbangbangbangbangbangbang

    till I run out of energy.

    Then I use my regain-energy attack and I can use the channel-attack again.

    I pwn lvl +3-4 monsters in 1x

    But still, it ain't worth it to me

    The customization looks like fun, I am not playing the open beta so yea I don't know how the gameplay is. I might try it if it gets nice feedback.

    don't flame me.. i said IMO, the game isnt for me nor do i BELIEVE its worth a monthly fee.

    not saying the game sucks tho, its OKAY ..but wasnt that great..

    So your answer is ..No, i will not be buying this game sir.

    I've played quite a bit of the beta throughout the time it's been up.

    It was a pretty okay time waster, you could just log on and gain a few levels just to pass the time.


    However, after the EXP change, it got grindy. (I know it's not a permanent change, but, still!)

    I wouldn't have paid for this in the first place however.

    Missions are mundane and monotone, there's basically no group content and there are various game breaking powers.

    Sad but true fact is that this is all too common in the initial phase of MMO's.

    It takes a special breed to be an early adopter of anything because you know you are getting into something that does not yet have all kinks quite worked out.

    Cryptic Studios has a good track record of listening to it's community (The amazing Cup O' Joe with her handling of the CoH/CoV group) and believe they'll do a decent job in the long run.

    still not sure if im gonna buy it. if they fix all the issues with gadgeteer bots/drones stacking inside your body like a magnet + falling damage on them before launch ill probably get it. but thats not the only thing that needs fixed, the game is still full with bugs and went out of beta way to soon imo. like if use the super jump travel skill the moment a enemy agro u, u get the falling dmg from it, like 2-3k. really lame. and if u fight large groups that have knockback/stun abilitys your just watching your character die while u cant do anything no mather what level they are. sometimes my guns become invisable and im just holding my arms infront of me shooting invisable bullets... stuff like this should really be fixed.

    Won't pay 50 bucks for the cd(don't know how much it is) but i would pay 15% bucks to play it now and then


    Cons.
    1)Tanking is somehow a joke...a guy with dex build/rank 3 regen never dies...I mean i tanked this without equip O.o and only 15% crit rate...


    2)You can get Eye Beam from Power Armor at lv 5...its the best skill(that isn't bugged) for 1 vs 1 and it doesn't cost energy...
    At lv 40 I hit for like 180-240-290-330-380-420-470-530-600-700 Not to count crits(with good equip u could get 40-50% crit rate)+it seems to have the best range in game
    2.1)There is a skill in the melee set that is OP named thunderlunge or something...u can get it at lv 5(i think its bugged coz on the site says you need 5 points into that branch to get it ) and spam it till lv cap


    3)A lot of animation bugs

    4)in the last 2 days of open beta they ****e up the exp by half from quests and 7/10 from mobs
    4.1) i did all the quests in the tutorial,both stages of Canada and Milenium and ran out of quests at lv 15 ( didn't checked desert)


    5)got a lv 15 gunner and 12 Power Armor before they made it posible for insta lv 40
    Also my lv 40 is a gunner/power armor hybrid and
    I won with this build at least 30% of the pvp matches i had....lost like 5% and the rest ware ties since no1 ever died


    pros

    1.char customization
    2.skill customization
    3.it actually takes skill in pvp...not really in pve


    *some quests are good the rest are beyond junk

    From the opinions posted here, this game doesnt seem that good. . .;/

    I reached lvl 20 in MC. I had tons of missions left and I still have random missions given anytime I save a NPC from wandering gangs or fly at low levels to pick up missions on my crime computer.

    I will be joining in the fun. See you guys in headstart.

    the xp isnt that bad imo i think they only reduced global xp by 25%, and it was just a test. its not sure they will keep it this way upon launch is what they said. the xp from most quests was just fine, but the xp from monsters turned out to be way to low yeah. however at level 15-20 i went soloing the low lvl PQ in the desert and i got 10-15% xp out of it in only 10minuts! really great way to level still.
    (15-30% actually at lvl15-18 and 10-15% arround 19-21)

    I will be.

    I just felt it was a fun fast-paced game. Not anything spectacular, but it caught my attention and held it -- something I haven't had with a MMORPG in a while.

    Played during the Open Beta, had fun. But it's not worth the p2p status for now, tons of bugs and performance issues.
    Character creator was fun though.

    ****.

    Well, I won't be getting the game because I'm too cheap to pay a monthly fee.

    I actually had fun with the character creation, dived into the game during OB. There were some bugs with quests and a few other things they better fix before they actually launch. I'm not going to get it since I want to have a go with DC universe and then make my decision between the two. Don't get me wrong I liked this game a little, but I don't want to jump the gun so soon.
