So Impatient for CoT to Release (In a Good Way)

Just want to throw out there that, particularly with the recent tech update, I am so, so READY for CoT to come out! I have a character concept that is ready to come to life (the gunner AT I have in my signature), intended to be like a “walking star,” and I’m so eager to see him live.

I’ve been ready since the KS all those years ago, but today more than ever I feel the itch.

So, yeah, want to take a moment to thank the devs for all the hard work, tell them I’m rooting for them and eagerly await the next bit of news on the development! We’re cheering you on.

I know how you feel. I've had

I know how you feel. I've had at least three character concepts ready to rumble for the past three months and a deep desire to make them in the CoT character creator.

An infinite number of tries doesn't mean that any one of those tries will succeed. I could flip an infinite number of pennies an infinite number of times and, barring genuine randomness, they will never come up "Waffles".

I’ve attempted creating some rough approximation of what I want to play in CoH, and while I still love the game I find myself often wishing it had many of the features being worked on for CoT (aesthetic decoupling and expanded archetypes). It’ll scratch the itch for now but doesn’t fully assuage it.

For any one character of those three concepts, do you ever find yourself thinking “yup, I gotta make that one first”? I have a cluster of ideas but I have a distinct main I will prioritize over the others.

Awesome! What classification and specification are you going with for Smog? Sounds like something ranged, maybe?

By necessity, one of them can't be made first - Commanders won't be in the game at launch, so my necromancer plan just isn't going to pan out until such a time as they've been released to the game.

Of my other two characters - Scaleback and Stalwart Steel - the systems will be in place to make Scaleback's proportions, but the chances of a crocodilian tail being present are pretty unlikely at launch. As a result, the one that I'm going to end up making first is almost guaranteed to be Stalwart Steel, who's a mini-mech pilot. Really looking forward to that.

Oh, he's in the link "my non-canon toons", martial arts, super reflexes, but also has bioelectric bolts and poison absorption, and an arm blade :p

I'd love to do Galrithius first, but he's also a Commander so he'll have to spend more time in Necrobia first ;)

The situation with my main is similar to your commander issue. Gunner won’t be available at launch. I will likely create Safehouse with the ranged archetype available at launch and respec or reroll to gunner whenever that’s live.

Too bad we won’t meet Scaleback at launch, but Stalwart Steel sounds like a really awesome concept!

What's Safehouse's deal?

That pretty much sums up the plan for my namesake as well.

Sure, but what kind? With Scaleback and Stalwart Steel, they're basically both going to be the same setup (Massive Melee and Invulnerability) but the differences will be in the tertiaries; Scaleback's going to emphasize regeneration and super senses with hers, while Stalwart Steel is going to have a barrier system to enhance her evasion and a few ranged options. Also, Scaleback is going to be Parkour, while SS is going to be flight all the way down.

What sort of things are you planning? What powersets, what travel power? Just who is your meatshield?

I agree, but if all the other AT don't have too much support powers. Otherwise support ATs could become useless. I hope it's still true that there will be a holly trinity (Tank, DPS, Heal).

I tended to lean more towards

I tended to lean more towards damage, playing mostly blasters and scrappers. I rolled a controller near then end and it was fun, but very challenging for me.

With Safehouse, I’d like to give him that energy blast, but with defensive secondaries instead of support or manip. Thinking I’ll give him Lethality but stylized as very narrow beams of energy, think like lasers or some such, set to such high intensity that they could pierce armor. His secondary will be energy aura (atrophic aura), and is like to give him Kinetic melee as a tertiary to give him some close range options. Safehouse is a failed superhero from another city, his most recent disaster having set him on a soul searching journey that led him to Titan City.

Loving all of the really cool character concepts that everybody is coming up with. Might even have to try to step out of my comfort zone and concoct a support character at some point.

I was realizing a bit ago that I'm going to have to think about faces in CoT more than "Supernatural 13" :p

I would like to be able to tweak/build my way to a 'Supernatural 13' and then save/re-apply it to new characters, easily.

Be Well!

Hmmm...face saving, not a bad idea!

But are your characters clones? why would they have the same face :p

I know Commanders will not be there at launch, but a Multiple Man style hero could be possible, depending on how robust the Pet Avatar Builder is, a complete clone or slightly different style with the same face (Multi Verse?) either way. So saving face, or loading an entire character and just keeping the face then modding other features could work for that.

Meh. Bah!

True, and I also often used the same face, to start with, then modified from there. I have at least three, very different, characters that started with the same face:

I just saw that tweet and it made me equal parts intrigued and giddy! There’s definitely an energy behind the development that I hadn’t really seen before (not that you guys have ever stopped being enthusiastic about CoT of course).

Hope we hear the news soon :)
