DC Universe Online is launching Episode 18 for its members and Update 54 for everyone today

Don’t you love running content in hopes of getting a rare drop that never, ever shows up? If you love that, you will hate the R&D system being introduced in the most recent DC Universe Online game update, which launches today. On the other hand, those of you who like knowing that pure luck is not the sole determinant of character progression (also known as “almost everyone”) will be happy that the system allows players to break down and salvage unwanted gear to eventually craft a desired rare drop, ensuring that randomness is a bonus in your favor rather than your only hope.

Members can do more than just fight back against randomness, though; Episode 18 is available now for members and will be available for everyone to purchase on November 11th. That means a new eight-person operation and a new duo serving as the penultimate installments in the War of Light and League of Assassins storylines, respectively. There’s also a new powerset available for those eagerly awaiting Atomic powers, available to members for free and to all for purchase. It’s a lot to take in all at once, but having a lot to do in a game is not exactly a bad thing.

MorpayneRADIO I don’t know why they did it either. It definitely seems intentional

Wtf? Half the fun was pvp in the open world, cuz it sure as heck wasn’t the questing.
O well, guess I’ll never go back.

MorpayneRADIO They phasing out the PVP side of the server. When you create characters now you are automatically placed on PVE without a choice. The only way people will know of the PVP side is if they go into WatchTower/Hall of Doom and use the shifter to switch over.

This effectively killed the pvp phase. So if you log in again switch to PVE and you’ll see everyone like normal

I wish they would still do the things they said before they broke off and the CEO left. I really wanted the Server merge so I could play with my friends on PSN while I’m on PC.

I booted this game up a few months ago and saw like 3 people total on my pvp server in a half hours time. I love this game because I hate superman it and gives me the opportunity to punch him right in the face from time to time but I can’t play if the PC servers are dead…

Yup. It has my respect, and it’s well-made, but it just doesn’t focus on the kinds of content that I personally look for in a superhero game.
Like you, I wish I could like it as much as i want to …
Be well,

mysecretid DC is definitely my number 2 on the list of games I wish I liked but don’t. Could never really figure out why. It has so many things I like but …every time I try I go about a week then a month later realize It’s been a month since I logged in and never thought about it till now.

Even though I’ll never end up playing it you do have to respect the amount of content this game gets.

the only thing i don’t like about DCUO is that when i went sub i bought a couple of the heroes for the PVP.  When i ended up going back to F2P i couldn’t access those heroes becuase i didn’t buy the episodes associated with them…. I didn’t buy the episodes because i had a sub.

I finally took this game off my hard drive after many years. I have so much content for it, but I never play it.

Why? Because last time I checked (early this year) almost all of the new content was still group-only content, and I Iike a mix of solo stories in my gaming as well — especially for a game which comes out of the story + action genre of superhero comics.

In my experience, the solo storytelling in DC Universe Online runs out early, around level 15 – 20, and rounds of PvP and group raiding (pug or guild) just aren’t enough to hold my interest.

I’m only speaking for myself here, of course. 
I know lots of people love mass-group content in gaming, and they’re not wrong to love what they love. For me, however, I start feeling disconnected from a game world if said game world doesn’t acknowledge my character’s existence from time to time.

So, good on DC Universe, and the players who love it. Enjoy your new content. Me? I’ll be playing something else, alas.
Cheers,
