Apr 3rd 2012 9:31AM Hah! That was great fun, and felt very video-ish with elements like the cuts putting a blood elf further and further back the street.

Mar 26th 2012 12:59PM Some friends and I have been wondering about partially completed achievements like exploration and Loremaster. Does anyone yet know what'll happen if, say, you have Loremaster of Eastern Kingdoms and Loremaster of Kalimdor but lack one or both of the others when the updates happen? Do they reset, give credit, something else?
Mar 15th 2012 8:32PM I love all these ideas, and would be delighted to see them in play.
Mar 13th 2012 12:24PM I also recommend demonology, but I don't think there's a bad choice. And the three specs play very differently - it's a spread almost as wide as between paladin or shaman specs. I think I've respecced my warlocks about as much as all my other characters together, just to try out possibilities. :)
Feb 28th 2012 7:02PM I'm an active City of Heroes player, and want to add a few comments.
Each server has a favored place to gather for the trials (either Rikti War Zone or Pocket D, both places that characters from both factions can get to peaceably). Then people say what they're looking to join or what they want to lead a run for, and matchmaking ensues. What it's most like with regard to WoW is the way we put together dungeon runs in vanilla, with the ability to then teleport to the dungeon rather than (ugh, flashbacks) then make the run to Maraudon or Dire Maul.
Help channel, available on each server, can be as much of a wasteland as Trade, but there are people around who do like helping, so anyone who asks "How do I find a trial, now that I'm 50?" will get the info they need. And it's got very mellow official forums, and each server sub-forum has that info available, too.
These days, the equivalent in WoW would be to restore a global LFG channel, and then let folks form up and use the dungeon/raid finder. Which would be great, but I'm not holding my breath waiting - Blizzard doesn't seem to get what they tossed out. :(
And it all works relatively well in CoH partly because of its audience, which is (I've read) among the oldest in average age for MMOs and definitely widely invested in keeping things accessible for everyone.
Feb 9th 2011 11:27PM I would love it and hug it and pet it and squeeze it, I would call it George!
