Champions Online joins the Deadpool hype with freebie archetype

    
23

Crushing on Deadpool? Champions Online clearly is too, as it’s made its “Specialist” archetype, which usually costs 1150 ZEN in the cash shop, free for all players for the next week.

“Not every superhero can shoot energy blasts or have super-strength. Sometimes it comes down to special training with pistols and swords! Whether you’re an ex-mercenary looking to carry out some justice or a techno-ninja stalking the mean streets of Millennium City, the Specialist Archetype is for you!”

Smart-ass quips not included. The promo runs through March 3rd, so go roll one up.

LaughingAlex Two-gun Mojo is too damn deep in the tree now.

BKone ZenDadaist Be wary though, they nerfed Two gun mojo into a more unusable state by upping it’s cost to absurd and prohibitive levels.

Hate to rain on everones parade but, this is still a game that has taken extremely underhanded approaches towards it’s own playerbase.  It’s half predatory towards customers through it’s history of bait/switching with store items.  It also twists things to a half-or-entirely incomplete garbage just to try and milk money.

Also, the archtype is using now-recently-gimped pistols.  They nerfed two-gun into a more “Awesome but unusable” roll, with such high costs as to make it an unusable ability when your grinding levels, and questionable at best at high levels.
So CO lets people play a gimped dead pool who probably isn’t even allowed to use guns without feeling ultra tired out…..

As others have said already, “Too little, too late!”.

“CO catches up with the Deadpool hype.”  My response? Too little, too late!

Not that they don’t have so much other neglect, but damn. Why haven’t they added new/better faces? CO has had the ugliest faces I think out of any MMO.

Lol, one week. I can’t stand one hour of playing CO without feeling lonely, playing a dated, mismanaged game.
Specially when it’s an AT. Most of them are terrible. Being strong or not, they can’t even compete with freeform. Cryptic has to rework them from the ground-up.

They added new powers to the game and redid the power selection for the AT as well.
