Champions Online promises fresh events, archetypes, and costumes

    
27
Champions Online has posted a state of the game letter to let players know what’s new in Millennium City and what’s still on the way. You know, just in case you’re in the market for a superhero game or something. You don’t happen to know anyone who’s missing a superhero MMORPG today, do you?

Of note, Cryptic is hyping “new events with epic battles and unique new rewards,” new archetypes and costumes, minipets, and… OK. It’s lockboxes.

Watch for the new “Giant Monster Attack” and “Nightmare Invasion” events coming soon, with more to come!

More Lockbox Revisions! – We want to keep experimenting with our Lockboxes, providing you more of what you want to see and what would be useful to you in-game.

New Archetypes! – In addition to further archetype updates, we plan to put out more new Archetypes themed with our updates, including the Predator and Hexslinger.

New Costume Packs! – We all love the costume creator in Champions, and always want to provide more costume options!

“No…but theres instances and lockboxes!”

Crafting fixed?, new powersets?, expansion of the gameworld with full content zones?, supergroup bases?….

“Umm…No”

Ok, Pass.  I’ll check back in another 2 years.

I simply do not like Champions Online and nothing short of a re-launch will change that.  It’s ability to re-monetize the same 400 people is to be admired I suppose.

Meh. I bet the archetypes will be stupidly OP and costly, and at the same time they’ll squeeze in another nerf to the original free ones. It’s rare to feel ripped off when playing for free but somehow, CO’s original archetypes manage to do that these days.

Honestly my last straw with the game was when they castrated the crafting system a long long time ago, before it went into maintenance mode.  I love the build customization but that crafting shit was unacceptable.

CastagereShaikura  Yep – I did. (I also clarified that in all honesty the CO Server has about 250 online at any one time on average.) Still, it’s maintenance mode as CO usually see’s one minor content update (yes, a whole two events most likely using code from the Doctor Destroyer event and possibly the Champions HQ Destroid one time event that they pulled early because they couldn’t get it to work properly from a couple of years ago) – and new costumes (probably three) and of course moar Lockboxes.
Still it’s something but yeah, they usually add one new story mission or event about once a year – so we’re due.
