I liked it alot untill i got to like tier 4 endgame
>>
>>77666565
I have over 450 hours in the game. Spread over something like 6 years.
Very off and on game for me, I come back only when they add new content, play it. Get my main up to new highest CR, then dick around with other characters.

It's good for a few things.
>Making either a Hero or Villain and beating up Iconic characters.
>Rolling with cheap Marvel Knockoffs go fight DC hero or Villains.
>Fucking around Gotham and Metropolis.

It's in no way a good game, but not many MMO's have gotten down the system of, let the player dick around.

>>77667812
What MMOs are actually good?
>>
>>77667858
Good is hard to pin down.
So I'll focus only on MMO's that kept my interest longer than the initial day or two, since many games front load content to keep new players going.
>DCUO, as I said I have over 450 hours, but I'm an off and on, so once you hit end game, unless you enjoy raids all the time, there isn't much to do.
>SWTOR, Not much end game content, they don't add raids or that very often. But for a F2P that gives you 8 class stories with some choices, its Bioware, its pretty hard to beat. Give the Empire side a play through, it seems all the good writers were working on that.
>Wildstar, combat is active, twitchy really, but it went F2P and its pretty fun, has some players now, so its not lonely.
>Tera, looks pretty, plays well, feels a little clunky, but to be honest it kinda needs to or else it would feel flighty. It doesn't do anything wrong, but you feel like something is missing.

SWTOR, really feels like they push subscriptions on you hard though.

I stopped playing pretty early on because there were high level villains waiting by the start point of early story missions that kept killing me and not letting me through the door

Hero
>Fire hero, superspeed, dual weilding (swords)/martial arts
>Munitions hero, acrobatics, dual pistols
>Celestial hero, skimming, shield/dual pistols
Villains
>Electric villain, superspeed, martial arts
>Magic villain, flight, bow
>Atomic villain, superspeed, brawling
Which one of my teams would win?

I like the game, the missions going up to level 30 are always fun, but after that it gets kinda boring having to do the same alerts and rates over and over again to build up the combat rating. Plus now I need too do feats to build up my skill points. All the new DLC and episodes are for the highest levels which sucks. And then there are the fags who try and take control of the team and then rage quit because the team they are with arent a well oiled murder machine. Super speed is the GOAT movement mode, and I log on sometimes just to run around the city. It's that satisfying. It's really a matter uf how much time you're willing to put into the game

But maybe it's because when i played CoH i was pretty active in my guild, was friends with a bunch of people and on DCUO i was more of a loner(i actually feel like the social part of mmo's has been dying for a time now)
>>

rip

>>77670625
Because it allows new players to catch up on content instead of putting up paywalls that end up hurting long term growth and segmenting the player base. WoW, SWTOR and other MMOs make expansions free after a period of time for this very reason.
>>
>>77670771

I played this game and had a really enjoyable time. Much more fun than any of the Batman: Arkham Bullshit games. I chose Batman as my mentor and made a huge, bulky dude with a casual, laid back body language, similar to TAS Harvey Bullock I guess. He wore all black and yellow, boots and gloves, tactical pockets everywhere and had a sweet leather jacket with a bear paw on it. I spent a stupid amount of time just parkouring around Gotham and climbing up buildings with my "bear" hands.

I beat all of the missions in Gotham by myself. I know that defeats the purpose of a MMO, but my tv was tiny at the time and I never figured out how to enlarge the text box. So I managed to stealth my way through every dungeon and beat every boss on my own somehow. It felt like something Batman would do anyways.

Once I got to Metropolis I finally had to team up with other players which was super fun. It felt like I was really playing my part on a team of superheroes, pepper spraying, tazing and entrapping hoards of enemies while the heroes with powers swooped in and finished them off. Felt like I was the "Batman" of the team.

There are also a lot of cool buildings in Metropolis with rooftop gardens and parks that are fun to chill in.

magic should have been Tala but i hated the whole distinction between magic, gadgets, and meta. One mentor gets 6 powers while the others get 1 each.

Hvae any of you found Superman or Batman in the game?
I remember playing one day and I was bored as fuck so I decide to pass the time scaling building and I reached one of the tallest in Metropolis I found Superman and he punched the fuck out fo my character, luckily I was level 30 (my character was a villain)
>>
>>77678696
yes, there is a feat for finding heroes and villains just hanging around in the city. You can look up a map online and they will show you the specific spots those heroes and villains randomly spawn at
>>
>>77674295
Shame you have to buy certain styles

>>77678490
Yeah me too. I often wondered about the possibility of DCUO having a single player mode. I always thought that the story was interesting for a single player mode. The devs can even split some things as DLC/Expansions

So sorry

Think I'll spring for premium

It's actually pretty fun. I've played it and come back a couple times(when I have money) Villains are fun, and even though it's been a while, I LOVED being a rage Tank. I really wanted to try the Light power, but I couldn't figure that shit out.

Why do they make it so annoying to color my costume?

>>77681296

>>
>>77681327

yeah but why can't I just color my costume by piece instead of having a two color pallet?

I know DC heroes tend to focus on simpler designs but still
>>
>>77681296
>>77681354
The worst part is that the palette applies to your weapon whether you want it to or not, so if your outfit has bright colors then your weapons can end up looking like cheap plastic toys.
On a semi-related note they really need to let people customize their starting weapon's appearance.

I only just started using it but it's fun.

It took me 2 games and a bunch of f2p and betas to finally realize MMORPGs suck complete dick. I'm a huge fan of RPGs but MMO game design is just so bland and boring. Unless you have a few friends you can play with consistently there is literally no appeal to playing them.
>>
>>77682560
Characters have a weapon type/fighting style, super power, and a way of getting around.
Speedster is one of the four movement types along with acrobatics, flight, and DLC hoverboots.
Personally I prefer acrobatics, speedsters have an awful tendency to run up walls n shit while flight is just boring.

Even as a free game I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. The art direction and graphics are incredibly ugly, a shitload of basic features are hidden behind a paywall, and the story is written by post-DA2 Bioware.

Same. RPGs are literally my favorite genre but I haven't played a single MMO where I actually thought the gameplay was fun. As I said, the level design is usually just filler made for the intent of constant grinding. I can usually tolerate grinding, but there comes a time my patience dwindles and I simply realize I'm not actually having any fun playing the game. It's such a shame too, there are plenty of MMOs out there where I really dig certain aspects of it like the Secret World and you can really see a glimmer of originality but it's all brought down by all the MMO mechanics.
>>
>>77682615
Not >>77667996, but I've started playing it recently and I find it to be an alright game. Yes, there's a stupid amount of stuff locked behind paywalls, like not having storage space on your own ship, or actually getting certain quest rewards denied to you (fucking bounty hunter credit boxes), the combat is decent and the writing isn't bad. I suppose I'm also just easily amused by shocking people to death with UNLIMITED POWER as a sith sorcerer.

The gameplay is literally just a re-skin of WoW abilities and WoW has shit combat. The story can be decent at times, but even Fallout 4 has better writing. Hell, Fallout 4 has better companions too. Keep in mind, Fallout 4 is a Bethesda game, a company whose writing skills are less than stellar.

Damn this takes me back. I really wish they go F2P for all the content instead of doing these micro-transaction bullshit though, and if they want money, do something similar to the skin system in LoL. Really sad.

Wasted potential.
