WTF City of Heroes Devs??? by djmatt2 WTF City of Heroes Devs??? by djmatt2
During my brief absence from Paragon City, I've had to go into Champions Online, and one of the things about Champions that REALLY BOTHERED ME was those STUPID FLOATING OVERHEAD ICONS!

It made playing the game annoying and getting screenshots very difficult.

See it if you don't believe it. [link]

So I return to Paragon City, and what do I find? I find the

SAME STUPID FLOATING OVERHEAD ICONS!!!



WHO is the idiot behind this? WHO??? I want to know so they can be scheduled for a CAT scan.

City of Heroes went through over SEVEN Y EARS without needing those stupid scene-killing overhead icons! SEVEN YEARS! Players still managed to find their needed contacts well enough.

THIS NEEDS TO GO AWAY IMMEDIATELY!


I'm sorry about venting, but it's not as though I can take this to the forums, and I'm hoping someone else has noticed this and can help make a stink about this annoyance.

[Game: (I hate to say it) City of Heroes Freedom]

If this happens to all NPC, I think you are royal screwed for the comics

Actually there's a "workaround" that a lot of players were very kind to offer called Coin-B-Gone. It's not 100% effective but it allows me to get the shots I need to get.

Alas, we've been complaining about these since the _closed_ Beta test started. Not only haven't the Devs budged on the subject, but they haven't responded to our complaints. Someone at Paragon is a big fan of spinning coins. Probably a frustrated Mario Brothers fan..

Maybe there can be a mob of people asking the devs about it during the next UStream chat? It really needs to either go a way or give us the option of not seeing it.

Terraus635 has a point. We need ONE of us to express our dissatisfaction clearly, politely, and with a simple request for an equitable solution, not a hundred of us ranting "G3t r1D 0f stup1D co1nz NAO!"

The problem is I've been in a few of these UStream chats, and if one person is asking the question, more often then naught Beastyle will not answer it unless it's something he's prepared to answer. If more than one person asks, though, then there's pressure to address it.

Big mobs of people screaming at the devs in UStream tend to only get Beaststyle's attention/annoyance. And not the fun "Now they listen to us!" kind of attention either and more the "Fear my banhammer" variety.

I don't have the link to hand, but someone did make a texture patch that does indeed remove them. Guess the first thing I downloaded as soon as the forums let me login again? =P

Can you find the forum link talking about this thing? Search has never been our friend (contrary to the snarky replies on the subject).

Optional would be nice. We haven't had any difficulty finding contacts in seven years (at least that's the amount of time my account says I've paid) and that probably has something to do with the fact that there's a navigation marker on the compass and another navigation marker on-screen, along with distance.

Would you rather it be a Golden/Silver Exclamation Point/Question Mark like every other single MMO in existance? Yes, they could have done better, but they could have done a hella lot worse.

What they should have done was not fix was was not broken. The little rings under their feet have worked just fine before. And, yes, before you talk with them, it is gold.

this is a valid point, name one MMO that doesn't use the WoW Icon over head

Perhaps the devs could make it an option, for those of us who don't need our hands held?

I wouldn't mind that. The first thing I did when I saw that was go through the options and I couldn't find anything that would allow me to opt out of those stupid things. It's just plain stupid for them to throw this in and expect users to just deal with it.

Yeah it's new and I don't like it at all either. Because you know, we couldn't find our contacts by USING the existing methods like... them being ON THE MAP, and all... :/

Nice job of not reading basically anything at all about this before unleashing your inner retard upon the world...

Not that I'm nitpicking... the name of the game was IN THE TITLE... and stated twice in the description. Its times like these that I hate the human race. I even felt compelled to register an account JUST so I could post this. Stay classy.

You took the time and effort to register an account just so you could be rude and insulting. That is an example of the worst human behavior. Asking a question that was already answered pales in comparison to your unwarranted disrespect, especially given the original commenter's difficulty with English. There is some irony in the fact that, had you taken as much time to look at the commenter's page as you did to register your account, you would have realized this.

There is no class here.
