I actually just got an invitation to the closed beta and played for the first time last night. I cannot talk about content b/c of the non-disclosure statement but I can say I don't feel the article is fair, some of it was just wrong misinformation, and that I had a ton of fun. Will be playing this one for a while.

The game is free. Check it out w/ one of the free characters b/f you do anything else if you are not convinced.

the problem is while forbs isn't a gaming news site alot of people listen to it. those of the casual and don't play games alot but might be a marvel fan. so i agree you some what but cause they are still huge news out let it can be bit damaging for sales or people wanting to try it out.

The real gaming aren't supposed to write this kinda reveiw so early or in this case write about this as if it's a "demo." which it's not but a lot of people incuding the casual 's that so happen to read that mag don't understand this and may be turned off from it. oh well.

So do you have to select a certain server for this ? like north american and Europe?

Not for the beta. Not sure how it's going to work at launch. I'm guessing that you will have to select a server at launch but, like I said, that's just a guess.

One of my friends got into beta after purchasing one of the packages go figure, he tried for a couple days. He finds the game horrible, it was so bad he sent in a ticket to refund his purchase. One key thing was the controls, the devs stated that they won't use directional keys (WASD). He had a long list of cons and the one good thing going for the game, was just the variety Marvel characters in the game.

hmm that may have to to with the fact he had to pay for it too.

(WASD) not being the main control for a key board, while they said "this is a key board and mouse game "(for now) might be a problem for a lot of people. I 'll see what it's like for my self when I get in.

Ok so I ordered one of the premium pack with my prepaid credit card and the stupid site went and canceled it as soon as I Ordered. I tried re buying it since it did that and it keep saying you can only buy one per pack. I requested an answer from their billing support. so far this is really stupid. I'm gonna wait but if they keep my money with that screw up there's gonna be trouble.

well I was hoping i'd just surprise people. But I'll leave one hint it has the marvel now Rocket Raccoon in it. I have a letter back from them they said since it was canceled my money may not have been taken from my card . that doesn't explain why it's not letting me repurchase that pack though. they said I might want to try or buy another credit card. It look's like it'll be a bit before I join you. though I have some fact checking to do first. Oh marvel why do you keep failing me?

They brought back the bonus currency for a little while for the Founder's Program. I have read on other boards of a lot of people complaining that they wanted some more time.

https://marvelheroes.com/news/news-a...unders-program

I upgraded to the Ultimate Pack and have no regrets. I've enjoyed the limited closed Beta and I can see myself playing for a long while. Bonus cash will go to new character releases....hoping to finish out the Fantastic 4 and get Psylocke and Beast!

I cannot talk about content in the closed beta b/c of the nondisclosure agreement however I'll tell you what I can; i.e. information that can be gained from watching the gameplay videos that have been released.

I think it plays more like the Diablo games than the MUA games. Both are similar to eachother in perspective but Diablo has a much more open world feel, w/ side objectives and maps that change over time so you don't play the same board very often, while the MUA games were very linear. The graphics of MH seems better than MUA. The moves of MH, like MUA, are rooted in the source material so they will naturally be similar. That said, in MUA2 you could only have 4 special moves while in Marvel Heroes you have more b/c you have mapped keys like most MMOs. MUA offered one alternate costume while MH offers many. MUA allowed you to control a team of 4 (you and 3 bots) while MH focuses on perfecting your specific character and any teammates you have around you are other players.

Actually, the MUA and XML game characters had 4 costumes each. Just sayin'.

^^ That was a cool behind-the-scenes video. I was hoping to catch a glimpse of some new costume or something in there but it was not to be.

I did see the Human Torch make a huge flaming circle w/ a 4 in it on the ground and that looked pretty awesome. Looking forward to the launch of this game.

^ Good stuff. I've noticed they really do respond to Beta players feedback.

I really wish they would make some more character announcements but it seems they are buckling down and smothing out the mechanics of the game itself this point. Fingers crossed for Psylocke.

wow I have serious bad luck with this thing. I was on tweeter to day and saw them say to another "tweeter/ poster" that they send in the beta code with in a week after you purchase the pack of your choosing. Of which I have an invoice saying i completed in my e-mail and my account at Marvel Heroes site. so I told them on tweeter. they said they will investigate on their tweeter page too . I've sent in the details to their
costumer support to day as well since I was supposed to have received this . some time ago from the 1th of February.
