Champions Online kicks off a leveling challenge and ushers in some gigantic monsters

Here we go.

How quickly do you think you can get a character to level 40 in Champions Online? The developers are challenging you to hit that level milestone in a solid week with a new event. Players who manage to level to 40 within the week between April 12th and April 18th will unlock the “Jazzercise” emote, a special title, and tokens to exchange for costumes that otherwise require lengthy subscription time or a lifetime subscription. So there’s some motivation for hitting that milestone, especially if you’re a free player.

The patch introducing this event also includes some quality-of-life changes, including re-ordering the character list in the order of last played characters. So it’ll at least be easy to see your leveling characters for the event; this fact doesn’t mollify the large number of players who are actually accustomed to their character lists and aren’t happy about having the list radically change every time they log into alts. You can also go punch some giant monsters in the face if you don’t feel the need to validate your overachiever status, as the giant monster attack is running until April 18th as well.

the character selection needs a new UI really, on one hand the grid layout is cool… on the other.. a LOT of players have ~50 (or more) characters… i would rather they have done it like neverwinter, which gives sorting and always-at-top options; otherwise it is more like how star trek sorts the characters now

also, belatedly realized defenderp implies new heroes (players) and i actually noticed in game a lot more newbies the last few weeks, so this event is neat, because old players tend to spam their way to max level in about a week anyway… alerts should be speedy~ gearing at low levels is a bit too random for new players too (account-bound heirloom gear usually negates the need to gear up new characters for older players)… but sorta surprised that the reward has exclusive cossie tokens; more access is always good

dunno if i am gonna make a new hero, but (like some others) i do enjoy leveling others; so eitherway i will be involved~

So…costumes? Why not a FF slot?

not when people are willing to pay 50 dollars for them. Remember this is PWE.

Yeah, i know.

I’m just willing to bet how many people would rush leveling for the FF slot vs how many people are willing to pay 50 bucks in a D E D G A E M

The character select screen change was unanimously rejected in the PTS patch thread, so of course they plowed ahead with it anyway. If you told me they were tanking customer service as a means of sunsetting the game, I’d believe it.

Be nice. Its hard for the two developers in their closet office to revert already QA tested and sent to PTU changes and then have to submit it back again to Cryptic’s five person (Company Wide) internal QA testing team.

If I were a community manager, I’d say something about loving the passion of our most dedicated players and how it pushes us to do more for them or some such.
