Default Re: Marvel Heroes MMO

On the TC right now so we can expect this and much more starting tomorrow Cosmic Chaos Week:
NEW EVENT - COSMIC CHAOS!

We’re happy to announce a new event launching this week: Cosmic Chaos!
This event will last the full week, until next week’s patch. This event is also recurring and will come back every month, allowing for short-term and long-term goals for the event. We plan to have more regularly recurring events like this, to provide something to consistently look forward to.
With that in mind, check out out the features of Cosmic Chaos!
  • Cosmic Bosses Drop Double Loot - All cosmic Terminal bosses, every time.
  • Cosmic Questions Answered - What is the answer to Life, The Universe and Everything? The answer is a 42% server-side multiplicative boost to Rare Item Find, Special Item Find and Experience for all your heroes.
  • Cosmic Prestige Doubled - Doubled leveling rate for Cosmic Prestige during Cosmic Chaos week.
  • Cosmic Doop Double Spawns - Midtown is more dangerous, with twin Cosmic Doops visiting occasionally.
  • Cosmic Doop X-Defense - Cosmic Doops can and will appear in Doop waves of X-Defense.
  • Cosmic Doop Simulation - Cosmic Doops can and will appear in Holo-Sim rounds 5 and higher.
  • The Power Cosmic - A new Legendary item with powerful potential.
  • Doop Rune - A new rune that can be found during Cosmic Chaos.
  • Double Cosmic Warlock Box - Adam Warlock’s 42 splinter Random Cosmic Item box will drop 2 cosmics during Cosmic Chaos week.
  • Cosmic Doop Medallion - A new medallion for heroes that like to get up close and personal.
  • Cosmic Doop Insignia - A new Insignia featuring a Rare Item Find aura for your and your allies.
  • Cosmic Doop Training Sector - Move over cow level, portals to this this special facility for training Cosmic Doops is available during Cosmic Chaos week.
  • Cosmic Chaos Supplier: Moondragon - An honorary member of the Guardians of the Galaxy and daughter of Drax the Destroyer, Moondragon in no stranger to cosmic chaos. During this week’s Cosmic Chaos event, and returning each month, Moondragon will exchange Cosmic Worldstones for a variety of items:
  • The Power Cosmic Legendary Item
  • New Runeword Crafting Recipe: The Power Doop
  • New Runeword Crafting Recipe: Doop Inspiration
  • Portals for the Cosmic Doop Training Sector
  • Moondragon’s Cosmic Coffer
  • Doop Ectoplasm Artifact
  • Doop Insignia
  • ... and Cosmic Doop Companion Pet!
  • (a few more things are also in development)

Cosmic Shop Items - This Week Only
The store team is getting into this first Cosmic Chaos as well, with a few fun items for this week only:
  • Cosmic Mystery Box! - A “cosmically enhanced” cross between a BOGO box, mystery box and almost too crazy deal from the fine people on the store team. (If you want to see what kind of loot to expect, check out this video here)
  • Cosmic Penta Boosts - Returning for the Cosmic Chaos event.
  • Cosmic Hero Sale - A selection of Cosmic Heroes are on sale during Cosmic Chaos:
    • Silver Surfer
    • Rocket Raccoon
    • Mr. Fantastic
    • Invisible Woman
    • Thing
    • Human Torch
    • Ms. Marvel.

Cosmic Mega Bundle - All the cosmic heroes with their stash tab and costume at a cosmically crazy deal.


Notes on the event.
  • There is a new currency called Cosmic Worldstones. These stack to 9999 and will be added to the currency tab eventually, so as not to take up space.
  • This is a pretty hard core event and will return every month. Each month it will be iterated, adjusted, enhanced, etc. to be amazing and sweet.
  • There is a ton of cool stuff to find in the world and/or acquire from Moondragon using Cosmic Worldstones. Some of these items will require several events to earn. Example: The cosmetic pet "Cosmic Doop Companion" requires the highest number of Cosmic Worldstones (2000) and can't possibly be earned in one event weekend.
This is Ben, helping out Tim and Matt. I'll also update this post when there is an update.

Genese Davis : San Diego Comic Con Action-RPG Panel Insights

Posted Aug 08, 2014 by Suzie Ford


The San Diego Comic-Con showcased quite a few of our exciting video game panels, one of which was focused on the Action-RPG genre. David Brevik (Gazillion Entertainment) visionary behind Diablo and Diablo II, Jared Gerritzen (Major League Gaming), David Eddings (Gearbox Software), James Schmalz (Digital Extremes), and Chris Lee (En Masse Entertainment) joined me on location to discuss the evolution of Action-RPGs.

The San Diego Comic-Con showcased quite a few of our exciting video game panels, one of which was focused on the Action-RPG genre. David Brevik (Gazillion Entertainment) visionary behind Diablo and Diablo II, Jared Gerritzen (Major League Gaming), David Eddings (Gearbox Software), James Schmalz (Digital Extremes), and Chris Lee (En Masse Entertainment) joined me on location to discuss the evolution of Action-RPGs. From turn-based to real-time action, it was a pleasure to hear from the movers and shakers on how far the Action-RPG genre has come and where the genre could be going in the future.


We began the panel with a brief glimpse into the history of Action-RPGs. When asked which Action-RPGs have influenced their gaming career, David Brevik referenced how Moria was the basis for Diablo. The entire action RPG genre came into its own at that point in time. Jared jumped in and mentioned how Diablo defined this genre by combining first-person shooter twitch-like movements with an RPG. It was both shocking and captivating. David Eddings mentioned how Zork was one of the first action RPGs because, while it was all text, the player still felt that compelling gameplay aspect that Action-RPGs offer. Other panelists mentioned Kingdom Hearts and Borderlands being influential Action-RPGs. The Legend of Zelda was also mentioned as one of the first influential action games where the player’s really cared about the characters.
The panelists went on to discuss how the genre has changed and evolved mentioning how Final Fantasy’s turn-based games gave the player the ability to watch his/her character navigate the world. In addition, how procedurally generated games such as Diablo II gave players the option to play the game over and over. Multiplayer function is great for the genre because players get to create and maintain long-distance friendships.
The RPG aspect, of course, is a very big part of this Action genre, the panelists said. This discussion point led to the panelists describing how much RPGs in general have impacted the game industry at large. Lee mentioned how RPG elements are in nearly every game out there from online gaming, to social elements, to the evolution of characters. Eddings mentioned that AAA developers' goal when creating any RPG is to fulfill the player’s fantasy of being the hero, a race car driver, a football star, ultimate fighter, etc.

From there we moved in to the evolution of games. Schmalz agreed with other panelists that they could foresee a future game coming out and lasting for six or seven years because of the amount of transmedia, new content, lore, and evolution of characters that can be infused into one game. Lee feels that most games will shift in to this perpetual existence, meaning there will be no more sequels, just games that are released and go on with updates and new content.

When asked where the industry is going in the future, the panelists described how building communities and keeping players interested is key. Brevik mentioned how developers can’t ignore what players want because they are so many entertainment options out there competing with any given video game. For instance, Marvel Heroes is updated every week. It wasn't good at first, he said, but by building and communicating with audiences, we were able to improve the game and want to continue improving it based on our communities feedback.

In talking abut this perpetually existing game, the topic of Free to Play merging with Action-RPGs also came up. F2P allows for a free trial that developers hope will turn into paid subscribers, Gerritzen said. The challenge for developers is the need to pay employees salaries balanced against what the community wants. While ads can pull the player out of the gaming experience and pay to win exploits the customer, pay to decorate or customize your character is a better option when utilizing the free to play model, Eddings added.

Gerritzen mentioned that regardless of all this, a good game is the bottom line. No one will pay to play a bad game. Community is paramount. This is not like the movie industry where the audience's needs can be guessed or ignored. Without the community's needs being fulfilled, there is no game and ultimately, no jobs.
The Action-RPG genre is an intriguing and mega-fun genre, that is sure to continue surprising and exciting us in the future. I’d like to extend my heartfelt thanks to David Brevik, James Schmalz, Chris Lee, David Eddings, Jared Gerritzen, Gazillion Entertainment, Major League Gaming, Digital Extremes, En Masse Entertainment, Gearbox Software, and the countless producers, supporters, and fans. Thank you for your dedication and passion for the industry and for your valuable time.

Marvel Heroes 2015: Official Twitch Channel
MarvelHeroes 3 hours ago

source: Marvel Heroes 2015 official twitch channel



Details

@Doomsaw just spoiled some stuff about Pet-Tech on the livestream:

Some tidbits I picked up on from Doomsaw in the chat.


Tribal, info on Jubilee for you



The last note was when asked who is a future 200 ES hero if they were made. So Elektra will be 200 ES when she eventually joins the game some day.




  • All cosmetic pets are gonna be upgraded to cybernetic pets for free.
  • You would be able to unlock green, blue, purple, cosmic and unique nodes on them.
  • To unlock these nodes you would have to donate items of the specific type.
  • Cosmic nodes give bonuses to powers, while green, blue and purple nodes give bonuses to things like health, defense, damage and spirit.
  • You can reroll each node almost for free at crafter, allowing you to mix and match them to customize your hero.
  • Each pet can have different cybernetic upgrades.
  • You would be able to buy random pets for splinters.
  • There might be a craftable pet in future.
  • Pets are not going to be bound to heroes, allowing you to swap them between characters easily.
  • There would be a new "vacuum" feature. When you click a bindable key (default "J") all green, blue and purple on the ground are being automatically picked up and donated to your pet. This would help to unlock all the stuff.
  • If you have the max rank for every node on your pet the items are going to be converted to a small amount of credits (about 1% of the regular sell amount).
  • Cosmics and uniques cannot be vacuumed, and they would have to be dragged manually on the pet. You can also manually donate any green, blue or purple item.
  • You don't have to put your pet out to use Pet-Tech.
This would allow to accomplish the following things:
  • Every pet is useful.
  • Performance will be better because loot won't stay on the ground.
  • Players would have something to do with big loot explosions even if there isn't anything useful in particular.
  • MOAR CUSTOMIZATION!11
The vacuum feature is completely agnostic as to whether you have a pet out. You don't have to have a pet out, as long as you have a pet in your inventory you can press 'J' and vacuum. It's just attached to the pet for flavor.
What if you only have one pet? We are going to allow people to get copies of some random cosmetic pets for splinters. We may also have a craftable pet.
The Bronx Zoo teaser:

from @DrNo:The rest of the chat from tonight.

Shadowcat, Dr. Doom, Winter Soldier, and Nick Fury confirmed for next Advance Pack. Elektra confirmed for 200 ES. Now all I need to hear is a release date for Mayday Parker and my life is 45% complete. Bonus points if Nick comes with Maria Hill and Agent Coulson as Enhanced costumes.

Ok I have some sweet news this morning

ROGUE

Current Plan: Release in August or Early September and will be slightly after Jean's Review. They would like her to be released with Cybernetics and Bronx Zoo(hoping to get all of it in the August 28th or 29th patch). She will most likely be 600 ES

Currently she will absorb powers from every single boss in the game and most mobs and it will continue growing.
Her synergy is draining spirit and health on hit.







Rogue's Signature. Powers were taken from Magneto, Storm, Bishop and Gambit.

☆☆☆☆☆☆☆REVIEWS AND QOL☆☆☆☆☆☆☆

JEAN GREY

Current Plan: Late August.
The power types will still be the same, play as Jean and you have mental damage type, play as Phoenix you will still have energy. What will happen now is that all of the powers in her kit will be transformed based on what form you choose. So if you play Jean all the powers will now convert to mental damage and if you play as Phoenix all her powers will convert to energy damage. She will get a transform mode. There will be a toggle where when Phoenix Force is full you will turn into Dark Phoenix. You will turn into her no matter if you were Jean or Phoenix and Dark Phoenix will have it's own set of powers. She will also have a new Ultimate where she will "light the world on fire".

Another power mentioned was Mind Crush

Code Redemption Instructions



Friday, 22 August 2014





2.13 Patch: OPERATION OMEGA




OPERATION OMEGA

We're introducing a new recurring event this week called: Operation Omega.
Operation Omega lasts all week and will grow each time it's brought back on a monthly basis.


For a limited time, get 10% off
the regular price! (BUY NOW)



Pair this with our server-wide boost &
BE the Omega (More Info...)






Black Panther's Doomwar costume
is here! (More Info...)


Get Punisher's Omega Effect costume
for 24% off! (More Info...)

OMEGA-LEVEL BUFFS

Omega is the 24th and final number in the Greek alphabet. The ultimate letter.
To embrace the power of Omega, a very special server buff is in effect during Operation Omega.
  • The event begins with a 24% boost to Experience, Rare Item Find and Special Item Find.
  • As each day of Operation Omega the buff grows by another 24% for all three bonuses.
  • This will grow the server-side bonuses each day to 48%, 72%, 96%, 120%, 144%, 168% and 192%.
  • These are multiplicative server-side bonuses and compliment bonuses from items, synergies, etc.

OTHER OMEGA-LEVEL FEATURES

  • Certain enemies throughout that game can appear with an Omega-Level Threat designation that increases their difficulty by 24% and loot by 240%.
  • During Operation Omega, the first time you complete a Shared Quest each day will reward double Omega Orb rewards.
  • Omega leveling is 24% faster during Operation Omega. This works well with the Omega-Level buffs to experience.
  • Agent Coulson offers a new mission during Operation Omega week. Each day, you can complete five or more waves in the S.H.I.E.L.D. Holo-Sim to receive a reward from him. This will help hone your skills to be prepared for Omega-Level threats.

SHIELD OMEGA ACCESS FILES

During Operation Omega, players can earn up to 100 Omega Access Files each day.
Omega Access files are not random drops, they may be specifically earned:
  • 10 Omega Access Files just for logging in each day.
  • 30 Omega Access Files for completing Coulson’s training mission each day.
  • 60 Omega Access Files for completing the Shared Quests each day. (20 ea.)
This is potentially 700 Omega Access Files (this patch will be live for 7 days).
S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Dum Dum Dugan will exchange SHIELD Omega Access Files for:
Mysterious Blue Omega Box - 300 SHIELD Omega Access Files
  • Similar to the Mysterious Crimson Box, this will contain a random unique item that usually drops from a bosses more than other locations. The unique is guaranteed to have a Challenge Bonus.
Omega Ghost Box - 50 Omega Access Files
  • This will contain a random item and potentially include one or five Omega orbs.
Agent Coulson Team-Up - 2000 Omega Access Files
This will take several events to complete. His passive bonus will not be damage-type specific (so anyone can use him).

OTHER OMEGA-LEVEL FEATURES

  • During the event, any enemy can drop a new artifact: The Omega Drive
NEW UNIQUE ITEMS

Three new unique items have been added to the game.
  • Magneto now has a chance to drop the Mask of Xorn.
  • Doctor Doom now has a chance to drop the Latverian Monarch Cloak.
  • Doctor Doom now has a chance to drop the Helm of Doom.
These can drop from any level of Doom and Magneto, respectively.

Agent Dum Dum Dugan
(More Info...)



(Any excuse to put a pic of Squirrel Girl up)
SQUIRREL PERFORMANCE UPGRADES

  • As another step to improve performance for players, Squirrel Girl's squirrels now hit for double damage, and the maximum number of squirrels that can be active at once has been halved.
  • All of Squirrel Girl's squirrel-based mechanics, such as the amount of life each squirrel returns and the damage increase in Nutcracker, have been doubled.
  • Additionally, we've improved some of the mechanics that summon squirrels to allow players to reach that coveted Squirrel cap in a more consistent and quicker manner:
  • Squirrel Friends now has a 100% proc chance and a 0.25 second cooldown. This will make her ramp up time much more consistent.
  • Squirrel Friends' active component now instantly fills your Squirrel bar, summoning all 15 at once. The cooldown has been raised to 15 seconds.
  • Squirrel Saboteurs now summons 2 Squirrel Friends, up from 1.
MISCELLANEOUS

  • Cosmic Worldstones and A.R.M.O.R. Drives stack size greatly increased.
  • The Monolith encounter in the Muspelheim raid will no longer be buggy
  • Rocket Raccoon's Time Warp Turret now has a 4.5s cooldown to prevent a minor exploit where players would intentionally destroy their own turret over and over.
  • Some “Summoned Ally” stats now display on the Stats page for heroes. We’re looking to add some additional stats for future patches.
  • Squirrel Girl Dive Bomb now has 36% greater area of damage.
  • Daredevil's Spinning Hook Kick can be activated within 3 seconds of performing a Finisher (up from 2 seconds).
  • Mega-Sentinel in Midtown will count towards the appropriate Shared Quest
  • Silver Surfer may now pick up Deadpool's power ups.
  • Greatly improved the health of summoned allies created from many item procs. This will be very noticeable for certain items.
  • Squirrel Girl will get a free respec with the patch.
  • Fixed a bug where Squirrel's LOH would sometimes proc multiple times on a single squirrel making her invincible for a time.
STORE NOTES FOR OPERATION OMEGA

  • Punisher’s Omega Effect costume is available during Operation Omega and the store team is discounting the costume by 24% to celebrate the 24th letter of the Greek alphabet.
  • A S.H.I.E.L.D. Omega-Level Boost is available in the store during Operation Omega

Agent Coulson Mission Disabled

Hey all,
We're disabling the Agent Coulson mission for today until we have either a workaround or a definitive fix (which may be to wait for the 12am rollover).
We'll update you on it as we get more details - thank you very much for all of the information you've provided about your experience, it has been invaluable!

Hi guys,
There was a serious lack of communication on today's livestream today and I wanted to explain!
The first half of today was spent in the Gazillion office trying to a) isolate and track down the Coulson issue, using internal builds, player information, and testing via manipulating internal server time, etc. We discovered that when the server rolls over tonight at 12AM PDT, players will correctly receive the next day's Coulson quest. Because of that, we're going to be leaving the first day's quest livetuned off, and logging in any time after midnight will grant you an additional 30 Omega Files on top of the normal 10.
All while we were working on this, we were working on getting a good build onto an internal server for livestreaming Rogue (and hopefully showing off some Jean Grey, too). We had an issue with an internal build that resulted in most text either vanishing or being displayed as an error (just a build compile issue or something similar that my caveman brain does not understand, basically not a real bug but just a dud build!)
We called off the livestream and moved it to Monday so we could have more X-Men goodness to show off. The problem is obviously, that I never told you that!
Once it was determined that the next build would take too long (it would be ready post livestream and if the error came back, we'd have pushed it back for no reason) I grabbed lunch. And that's when things got lousy! As soon as I ate lunch I became overwhelmingly nauseous and had to drive home, where I have been stuck feeling seriously ill for the past few hours. It completely passed me by (as I completely passed out) that we never officially announced the livestream (which the marketing team usually does, but we held off until we were sure Rogue was ready) so they would not be announcing it's rescheduling until I woke up to a handful of (justifiably upset) tweets, emails and PMs.
I apologize for the lack of information - this one was on me completely, I will be sure that we officially announce when we are 100% go for Monday's livestream, so that if for some reason I magically fall under the same stomach demon's curse, you'll definitely hear about it's cancellation. In general, I won't open my mouth (hands) unless I'm sure we're going to be livestreaming/doing something awesome.
To make it up to you, I guess we'll have to do some cool giveaways on Monday (sorry @AFongTwo, signed ya up for that) and I'll have to maybe even bring in @KingBacon in addition to @MichaelMayhem. The good news is, since we're now going Monday, there's a much better chance we'll also have some awesome Jean Grey goodness to show you.

Im thinking of finally getting into this game as I heard its easier to gain new characters than before. Is that true? With this 2015 reboot, what happened to all the missions/story from the original release? Have those been done away with? Am I still able to access and complete them?

I really wish they'd release this on the PS4. Id be more inclined to play if they did. Obviously they'd have to overhaul the UI and controls, but I think it can be done. I mean Diablo 3 was able to do it (even though it was created with a gamepad in mind). Maybe a "2016" re-release could

sorry I'm kinda tired from looking up how to make twitch Embed codes . and I'm typing from work right now

it's true you can pick in game Currency. there has been this thing for a while now with Login Rewards, Achievements will be fully made very soon, etc.
If people don't want the new characters they don't need to spend $$ on them. They can Eternity Splinters. New playable heroes/ villians, costumes and team-ups are what sells $$ thereby keeping the game going. It's amazing how far Gaz has come with this game and I see new people entering it all the time now. and most of us helping them out with the lvel 52 reviews to make characters better, it's like a real extended beta for some of us that have had a job as a testers they take our feed back and the characters and the game over all improve.s there's still a lot that being done.as tp console they are talk but the alot that needs to be assured with the pc side first .

Alot of people become uppty when the console side is mentioned. yes near flame wars over it have happened . the dev's aren't opposed to this beside that fact, they just said there are priority's that need to be met first and to keep certain players happy right now. They will let us know when they are ready to do consoles.


ok this is from the stream last night

JEAN GREY

Current Plan: Public Beta Testing and Design Notes - 9/1 (or earlier). Estimated Release 9/5 Subject to change based on how happy we are and approval timing.

The power types will still be the same, play as Jean and you have mental damage type, play as Phoenix you will still have energy. What will happen now is that all of the powers in her kit will be transformed based on what form you choose. So if you play Jean all the powers will now convert to mental damage and if you play as Phoenix all her powers will convert to energy damage. She will get a transform mode. There will be a toggle where when Phoenix Force is full you will turn into Dark Phoenix. You will turn into her no matter if you were Jean or Phoenix and Dark Phoenix will have it's own set of powers. She will also have a new Ultimate where she will "light the world on fire".

The indecision is getting worse with this one! Marvel Heroes has so many cool superheroes -- from Guardians of the Galaxy to X-Men to the Fantastic Four, and more -- and Massively's MJ is having a harder and harder time picking which to play! But soon that indecision may come to an end, as her all-time favorite is on her way: Rogue. Until then, MJ still has time to play around with the rest of the lineup. Join us live at 3:00 p.m. for more XP-explosive adventures during Operation Omega as either Storm, or Rocket Raccoon, or Silver Surfer, or Psylocke, or...

Get a glimpse of Rogue in Marvel Heroes' video preview

(14 hours ago)
Super-hero, Video, Classes, Free-to-Play, Marvel Heroes

Few are the superhero fans who don't like Rogue, the saucy southern villain-turned-hero, and Marvel Heroes will soon be adding this powerful X-Man to its lineup. With her unique power-absorbing abilities, how will Rogue work in the game? Devs hosted a lengthy livestream to introduce the hero and show off her versatility. Of Rogue's three power sets, only one is pre-defined -- the Miss Marvel set with flight, strength, etc. The other two are customizable based on the powers players actually steal from friends!

If you missed the stream, you can get full details on stealing powers (as well as forgetting them to learn others), in the hour-and-twenty-minute video right here. There's also some talk about Jean Grey and Ghostrider, who get a Dark Phoenix power and more single-target attacks, respectively. Fans can also discuss Rogue in her special forums on the official site. Rogue is available currently for pre-order. Continue Reading
