Marvel Heroes 2015 | The Brevik Briefing | MMORPG
Quote
Marvel-Heroes-2015-The-Brevik-Briefing.html
1 day ago ... Over the last year or so, Marvel Heroes has definitely come a long way. After being almost universally panned at launch, David Brevik and the ... more Detail in the article

 This is from me.
 If you've been playing it since it's beta stage and through it's launch on the pc & ps3 or if your just coming back to it due the the ps4 and for us players to discuss what's current like news on upcoming DLC to keep this thread a busy and bustling thread

 
And what has changed here's a run down. what as changed is they will be adding villains or what's called anti heroes like the Juggernaut magneto and venom since they have at times joined the heroes side and tried to seeking redemption and still are . they are in an up coming advance pack. they added something called the Shield Training simulator where you fight Holographic heroes like the hulk and other known marvel villains in the game . this is a precursor to the X-Men's "Danger Room" which is still on it's way which be better then the shield training room cause it'll have all the HoloDeck star trek goodness it's known for yeah the entire room will have morphing environments.(it's still on it's way)
 

 
with in that game you can get 100 splinters for the first time you complete the "raft" prelude and you quickly gather the extra 75 needed to get a new random hero. Or if you play through the storyline you get another 100 splinters for defeating Doom the first time and by then you will have close to the 400 needed for a new character of your choice rather than doing the random hero.
 

 

 and they have been doing a lot of special holiday event's like Chinese new year and st Patrick day. and where they even allow you to pick up extra heroes while you play or artifact's to make your heroes better and stronger. you will feel like the heroes your meant to be.


 and they have been do hero review/ revamps to make the characters play better.
 

 

 They have stated that there will be a hero team up system where you can have Ai versions of say Spider man and his amazing friends( Ice man & Fire star among other heroes. and there will be a team up with the falcon and winter soldier the heroes Team up system (what was formerly the side kick system (til the fans of the game such as my self made it clear that marvel doesn't do side kicks it has partners and team mates) is still being worked on.

 

 
And they have recent put up that they have single player and duo content on the way now too.

 

 lastly they have stated that the close beta mac version started Mac Closed Beta Test and there will be an app system for tablets.


On the console end that they still have plans and they are in talks about it it's been shown in alot of their live streams and they have written about this on the forum

On PS/XBox ports:Perhaps one day, we've been approached and had talks, but we are focusing on PC 100% right now, along with a small team for Mac integration.

Team-Up Allows Players to Recruit a Super Hero | Marvel Heroes ...

Quote
Apr 11, 2014 ... Marvel Heroes 2015 (MH2015). Gazillion Entertainment
TeamUp Allows Players to Recruit a Super Hero



Team-Ups
The first three will of course be Falcon, Spider-Man and Firestar:
Yes, each team-up will have customize skill trees with more than likely 12 powers each. There will be no costume slots but there will be 30 stash slots.
And yes, they can be bought with splinters. But there will be an Advanced Bundle Pack for Team-Ups
Possible Future Team-Ups
She-Hulk - (A coy) Awesome idea reply from @Ryolnir.
Dazzler - She definitely won't be a hero this year,but could be a good team-up idea.
War Machine - Will be playable, but may release first as a team-up.
Vampire Jubilee/Classic Jubilee - Would be an awesome idea but no confirmation.


Longshot - Another awesome idea but no confirmation.
Deathlok - Been batting around the idea with Doomsaw for a year. Nothing set.


There are now 3 modes for the team-up: Big impact on entrance 30 second summon on a CD, always out like a D2 merc, or totally passive benefits. Each has their own pros and cons.
The first released will be Spider-Man, followed by Falcon for the new Cap movie, and Firestar at some point. A list of mentioned Team-Up heroes can be foundhere.


They will have gear slots and their own Team-Up gear. Team-Up gear will effect their stats, and sometimes your own.
They are account bound, not character bound, so if you buy Spider-Man team-up, all your heroes can use him.
Team-Ups are to be used by everyone, not lore-bound pair ups, so Deadpool could run around with Pepper Potts if you wanted. They will likely not be producing character only Team-Ups, such as a Groot that only Rocket Raccoon can have.
They carry 30 inventory items, this is apparently going to be accessible even if you don't own a Team-Up.
They will not collect loot for you or go sell items, they are not valets, they are super heroes.
Team-Ups will allow them to add heroes to the game early that may be years away from getting their own playable version. They will also allow them to support the Marvel movies without having to add playable characters/story content, such as Guardians of the Galaxy members.
Team-Ups will level with your hero automatically, so you can call them at level 1 and they will be level 1 or call them at level 60 and they will be level 60.
They have 12~ skills and some sort of skill tree system.
They are bought with Gs or splinters (maybe even achievement rewards) and will be less than $10, with the most expensive ones being those that need voice over work.
No costumes for Team-Ups, if they were going to do a different look (comics Falcon vs. movie Falcon) it would be its own Team-Up. This lets them make separate skill sets for them, i.e. two different Wolverines.
They will not have costumes, but some Team-Ups are costumes themselves such as Kate Bishop, Pepper Potts/Rescue, and Beta Ray Bill.
You may be able to rank up your Team-Up by donating items (uniques) to it, which will improve their stats, lengthen the summon duration, and reduce their cooldown.

Starktech
Starktech is being redesigned and no immediate release date. Focus has been turned to Team-Ups for now, but will get finished.


Bronx Zoo
Will happen, hopefully in the next couple of months. Probably after the first Raid is released.
Wave 2 Characters Pre-Sale Pack
Mmm, probably. But of course, Sue Storm is April and Psylocke is believed to be May.They said she's have a mixed of TK and her pyshick knife and she'll be a melee hero and they didn't say if one as in how many katana's she'll use they dance around on the number and talk about dead pool in the mix of it. and moved on
[font=verdana, geneva, lucida, 'lucida grande', arial, helvetica, sans-serif]I also just asked if she'll have he crimson dawn powers of teleportation and enhancement of her psionic powers too in the live stream thread the devs have up. Again it's in the live stream thread the dev's made.[/font]



[font=verdana, geneva, lucida, 'lucida grande', arial, helvetica, sans-serif]t[/font]


From @MichealMayhem : She's pretty far along. The MH team has had several meetings and they want to match the design of the MH game character to the current and past comic book character.
She will be ninja-esque, wielding a Tk katana. She will also have the psy-knife/psy-blade and be an awesome high-speed psychic ninja.

There may be a few more goodies [font=verdana,geneva,lucida,'lucida grande',arial,helvetica,sans-serif].[/font][/color][/color] hiding in Doomsaws chat log
Thor
No plans for an Ultimate Thor enhanced costume, but Old Man Thor will be released in a few weeks.


Wolverine
Re-work hasn't started yet, still reviewing forum feedback but will have several new powers.


There will be an Enhanced Costume Pack for Shuri(the black panthers sister in the comic's)



and this week and next week there is a Don't Fear the Reaper Week-Long Event!

there's more info on how Team up's work from last niht on the marvel heroes forum from the dev's details are in
Team-Up Hero FAQ

There will be another live stream tomorrow you can watch it at the top of the page and recorded version will be on their twitch channel after words in their broadcast section.

I'm not entirely sure why this thread still exists in its current state.

 I get that you want a thread for all things Marvel Heroes but a lot of this information could have been covered in a simple link to their home page.

I don't want this to be taken as a criticism or attack, I'm simply trying to help you out by letting you know that this format of thread is not very helpful to people here.

If you'd like to generate interest in a game you could maybe check to see how the community feels about the game or ask them if anyone else is looking forward to it.

Maybe I am alone in this and please feel free to ignore my opinion if that is the case but currently this thread is just a big wall of text that doesn't have any sort of structure and is very difficult to understand even if I was interested in finding out more on this game.

I'd suggest something more like this...

"Hey Guys, Just making a quick thread for anyone else who's interested in Marvel Heroes. They've got some pretty cool things planned for the game and I'm definitely looking forward to it. Also if you guys aren't aware of the game yet go check it out (https://marvelheroes.com/) and let me know what you think"


^ This is an example of something that shows your interest, is a quick, clean read, and is very easy to understand. I can also check the site to see what all the new updates are and maybe talk to you about how excited I am to Hulk out on some people.

Well It is for the same reason there is a DCUO one that was made.

 it's cause it updates constantly per week. but I only put up the the important stuff once it's all settled and it's only for those that are interested in the new content and are interested in the new cool stuff being put in.

So people will have something new to talk about and that have been playing from the jump or are new to it. And no there no problem with what you said at all, I do under stand.

And I have been trying to keep it clean. lot of the time first try it just plan messy and I spend an 3 hours cleaning this up. but I am also showing quotes from the actual dev's them selves. Cause some times the skip details in the info they put out and they do this on the fly.
 their main site doesn't always do this. the rules are to pick up info from the source. and the dev's are the source.


I will do what you suggest, since this isn't like the old Ep forum which I was apart of.

Again I'm still learning this new way you want me to post on here. while in other places there was another way. and it's done in one simple post. But I'm trying my best.

And no this is ok . Any way to improve my posting on here is welcome with your opinion. Thank you for telling me


 I do want to be a valued member of the forum as I was in the old forum before the revamp and long return of the forums. BTW I will state this again I don't work for them just sharing the new info on what has changed since. their in L.A. I post on there as a player. But that's it.

Hey every one I thought I should share this news with you. The dev's of Marvel heroes have state there will be streaming a live of the team ups they' re going to do a stream this afternoon April 3rd @ 4pm PDT / 7pm EDT / 11pm GMT to show the team up system (except Firestar/Falcon who aren't quite approved yet).
Patch includes the Black Panther upgrades, a bunch of bug fixes (including Dr. Strange infinite dmg bug), Cosmic Prestige level, Captain America movie costume, Black Widow Fear Itself costume. on their Marvel Heroes Twitch channel

the Recorded version will be in the recorded section  called past broad cast  of their channel.   just click the link titled Marvel heroes high lite in the upper left

  • Clea: Sometimes leader of the Dark Dimension and a former student of Doctor Strange, Clea possesses nearly unlimited magical power. She uses her vast magical powers to defend the Earth from her brother Dormammu.
  • Deadpool-the-Kid: From the Earth-1108 universe, this Wild West version of the ‘merc with a mouth’ is wanted for “bank robbery, arson, software piracy and stampeding pygmy goats through an orphanage.”

  • Havok: Brother to Cyclops of the X-Men and a previous member of X-Factor, Havok absorbs cosmic energy and channel it into intense plasma blasts.
  • She-Hulk: This formerly meek lawyer received a blood transfusion from her cousin Bruce Banner, and with it, gained the ability to turn into a (not as rampaging) Hulk of her own. Unlike her cousin, while transformed, she retains her sharp wit and mind.
  • Spider-Woman: With bioelectric powers, super-human strength and flight, this former Hydra assassin has now become a valued member of various iterations of the Avengers. This is the Jessica Drew version of Spider-Woman.
  • Wasp: Wife and partner to Ant-Man, she uses Pym particles to shrink, which gives her wings and the ability to fire blasts of energy at her enemies.

New Heroes

  • The 2015 short list includes some obvious ones like Ice Man, War Machine, Spider Woman, Ant Man, She Hulk and some big surprises. Obviously a longer list than that.
  • Mr. Fantastic- 11th Hero from the Advance pack. He is heavily underway and will be released in July. All of his animations and dialogue are complete and some of his powers are finished or close to finished. He will use a lot of stretching powers. He has two very unique-looking movement powers. He also uses a few impressive gadgets that are a notch above anything we've seen so far.
  • Rogue- 12th Hero from the Advance Pack. Her release will be late 2014 or first one in 2015. Her initial design concept is pretty much solid, with trees related to her Ms. Marvel long-term storyline powers and 2 trees dedicated to the most popular powers she has stolen over the years. She will also have her signature power of stealing 1 power from existing enemies, which will be a TON of work, but worth it.
  • Magneto- Most likely September 25th."

 
 
  • further details can be found up there in the source .


Also Fourth: there's this on the upcoming omega system and other detail like player housing and up comin characters and team up's like Agent Coulson and lastly the trade system

"Shared Quest Mini Preview
Hi all,
I just finished typing up the help text for Shared Quests and I thought it would be cool to see it as a mini-FAQ. (We won't have time for full FAQs until Tuesday night when the final anniversary build is done and being cooked).
Here is the copy/paste from our internal code:


  • Shared Quests are super-sized quests that are automatically shared with all players, allowing them to be seamlessly completed by groups or individuals, regardless of level, group status, difficulty mode or location.
  • All players receive the same Shared Quests each day. New ones are assigned each day, generally including a Midtown Patrol quest, a quest to defeat threats in Terminals and a quest in X-Defense or S.H.I.E.L.D. Holo-Sim.
  • Three Shared Quests exist each day. You may complete any of them any number of times. As soon as you complete a Shared Quest, you will immediately begin earning progress towards the next one. Shared Quests may be completed alongside or in place of Legendary Quests, sharing credit at all times.
  • Rewards for Quests include Odin Marks, credits, experience orbs and random gear of all possible rarities and types, based on the difficulty of the Shared Quest.
  • The first time you complete each of the Shared Quests, each day, you will receive bonus rewards, including a bonus Omega Orb.
Quote

Note that several issues will prevent us from ever being able to share Legendary Quests (since they were built for single people and have several issues with sharing) but these new Quests are built from the ground up for sharing and will allow any size groups or couples to play together for however long they wish, at no cost and no hassle. This will change the game for a few people and just be a nice "free bonus" for others.

 Ok that's all of it .

Hello   just here to let every one know that Surtur  is on the test center of Marvel Heroes   here are detail from the player called Thesupport

  • Surtur Raid: The aforementioned ruler of fire demons headlines an epic end-game event for 10 players.
  • Omega System: Advance, alternately. The Omega System allows for even further character customization and progression up to and beyond level 60.
  • Daily Shared Quests: A new way to undertake missions and adventures reserved for earth's mightiest.
  • Achievements: Accomplish the impossible and be recognized – some are even catered to individual heroes.
  • Login Rewards: Showing our appreciation for committed players by thanking them with many awesome things.
  • Silver Surfer: The Herald nears. Will Norrin Radd's arrival presage doom, bring salvation, or just deliver a cool new hero to play? (Hint: It's the last one.)
  • 365: Days of. Gifts for. Oh yes, we have plans.
  • End of Anniversary: End of Anniversary: A celebratory surprise event to close out the month.
  • Oh... Our kickoff is going to include a big weekend event, too.

Quote: So not all of these things will be available once the patch goes live, but some of them will be released at a later time this month. Given the current state of the Test-Center at least the things that I posted here will be available today!
Remember that this is the perfect opportunity to get your friends back or newly into the game as the gifts that we will get throughout the event will be a nice foundation not only for starters.

Gazillion has steadily undertaken the task of reviewing and reworking each and every hero in Marvel Heroes over the past year, with priority given to the starter characters players choose from when entering the game. This massive slate of reviews is nearing completion and the latest review to hit was for everyone’s favorite weather witch: Storm.
 

 

When Marvel Heroes originally released, characters featured a power progression from levels 1-30, with an ultimate power earned at the end of said progression. Months later, Gazillion began releasing new characters with power progression up to level 52, with roughly five additional powers per character earned along the way, including a new Signature ability (earned at level 30) and the character’s ultimate acquired at 52.
Since Storm was one of the game’s launch characters, she’s only had a power progression from 1-30 up until this point, but still remained a fairly interesting and viable character nonetheless. Even prior to her rework, Storm had a full suite of visually impressive powers at her disposal, and aside from being squishy, could clear packs of mobs better than most. The character did lack a reliable boss shredder, but her largest flaw was probably her kit’s focus being on a single ability: Thundering Maelstrom. If geared properly, Storm players could basically fly around the map zapping everything while holding just a single button. Thundering Maelstrom was visually impressive to be sure, but like anything else, it got old, and there wasn’t a whole lot of depth or nuance to her gameplay pattern.
 
 
 
With Storm’s level 52 review, Gazillion has maintained the power in Thundering Maelstrom, but they have also given the character a whole lot more options, including a viable wind tree for players who prefer conjuring tornadoes to lightning storms. A new boss shredder in Electrocute does wonders for fighting bosses, though channeling this ability can put you at risk of dying. It looks too cool not to use, even if I do put myself at risk. Imagine Emperor Palpatine frying someone with force lightning and you’ve basically got Electrocute. Microburst, a new single target wind power, is a bit underwhelming as an alternative, but I could see it working with some numbers tweaks.
Storm’s new Signature ability conjures up a powerful Typhoon. It does some impressive damage, provided enemies stay within the radius. Venom isn’t much of a fan though and will often swing right out, much to my frustration. An irresistible slow would probably help a bit here. Sudden Tornadoes, a new power that can conjure up roaming tornadoes to create havoc on the battlefield, is awesome once you’ve got all five going, but it can be a real chore casting the ability five times every 10 seconds or so just to keep these things going. Common feedback, and I would be inclined to agree, suggests that Gazillion change the power so Storm players summon all five tornadoes at once.
The retooled tempest powers, toggled abilities that provide various effects, are mostly a welcome change. I do feel that Arcing Tempest, Storm’s lightning themed toggle, is a bit underwhelming due to the erratic damage it deals, and could certainly be spruced up a bit. Freezing Tempest is probably my favorite due to its interaction with Storm’s new crowd control breaker, Storm Surge. With Freezing Tempest active, Storm players can activate Storm Surge to pulse out a massive irresistible stun. At high ranks, this can stun a pack of mobs for long enough to dispatch them completely and even lock up a boss for a little while. Going this route will lock you out of some consistent projectile protection offered by her wind toggle, but I think it’s probably worth it.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!

MarvelHeroes:Storm


Aside from all the new gameplay additions, Storm’s VFX and SFX have also been improved across the board. Some have complained about the appearance of Storm’s wind powers, but they look fine to me given the VFX soup that Marvel Heroes tends to end up being, especially while playing Storm. If the wind powers looked proper you probably wouldn’t be able to see most of the stuff going on in the game. My favorite addition to Storm’s aesthetics, aside from the aforementioned Electrocute, is the rolling thunder sound added to Thundering Maelstrom. Yes, TM actually thunders now. Woot!

Marvel Heroes launched last year in a decidedly less than superheroic state. The game shared many qualities found in the various ARPGs that have come onto the scene since Gazillion CEO David Brevik essentially created the point-and-click ARPG genre with Diablo in 1996. What really set the game apart from its peers was its unique blend of MMO and ARPG elements. Unfortunately, that wasn’t enough. Gazillion Entertainment, the developer of Marvel Heroes, did a decent job blending these elements in the game’s initial release last year, but it was the rest of the game that simply came out undercooked.
Frankly, Marvel Heroes wasn’t a great game when we first reviewed it, but like all MMOs, Marvel Heroes is a living product and Gazillion has seemingly been burning the candle at both ends over the past year to make Marvel Heroes the game everyone hoped it would be. Did they succeed? Read on for our re-review to find out!
 

 

AESTHETICS - 8
Marvel Heroes likely won’t win any awards for having the highest fidelity graphics one can find on the market in 2014, but the developers have more than made up for the somewhat dated look with an intense attention to detail. Characters in Marvel Heroes really come to life with an impressive array of power animations and visual effects. You’ll also find little details like the fact Johnny Storm’s passive flame effect changes in intensity depending on how much Spirit (mana) he has left.
Not only do the characters look great, but most sound the part, too. Spiderman’s always cracking wise, Torch is as cocky as you would imagine, and Sue Storm is right there to scold Johnny just as she always has. That last bit really sells the experience of playing a game set in the Marvel universe, too. The characters all interact with each other and even with the game’s various major villains. Hearing these can get a little grating at times depending on the character, but discovering all the little interactions is a delight more often than not.
The environments and enemies in Marvel Heroes are similarly detailed, but the flip side is that there is a dearth of both. You’ll be fighting mostly the same enemies and bosses, even in different forms of content, and while there is some variety in the game’s environments, it wouldn’t hurt to have some more available.

VIDEO-CLick to Watch!: Marvel Heroes 2015 Launch Trailer

 

 




GAMEPLAY – 8.5
If there’s one area that Marvel Heroes has improved on in leaps and bounds over the past year it’s in its gameplay. Ever since Gazillion picked up Jeff ‘Doomsaw’ Donais last summer, the team has had a renewed focus on really tightening up and improving the game; and it shows. I could sit here and get into all the little details, but the basic problems with Marvel Heroes’ gameplay at launch were in the game’s various playable heroes’ kits and in the game’s item hunt. Fortunately, Gazillion has improved both areas. For one, the team has gone through the game’s constantly growing roster and has almost fully reworked the characters that needed it, by adding new powers to their kits, among other things. The vast majority of these reviews have resulted in significant improvements for characters, making them much more fun to play and giving players additional options in terms of builds. Gazillion has also revamped a number of the game’s behind-the-scenes systems like defense, damage, and other tidbits to make the simple act of playing more fun. If you haven’t played since before these changes went in or you just haven’t played the game at all, it may be harder to notice, but the game is a good deal less spiky in terms of damage and characters across the roster are more consistent both in terms of the amount of damage they can take and dish out.
There are tons of new items and item types to hunt as well: Legendary items allow you to select from a variety of items with a linear progression of effects that are unlocked as you earn experience with the item equipped. Team Insignias offer players an item slot with team utility. Runewords are a throwback to Diablo II and allow you to further customize your character in interesting ways, and so on. Using Runewords as an example, the River of the Soul Runeword enables many characters to run builds without basic attacks due to its powerful spirit management effect. It’s a simple effect with significant impact.
 

On the content side, Marvel Heroes has added multiple new difficulty modes for the game’s story, new Terminals (formalized boss runs), a patrol zone for players to run to their hearts content, endless survival in X-Defense, and more recently, Raids. There’s a lot to do in Marvel Heroes, even at level cap, and even I haven’t done it all. Raids are the one area I haven’t been able to tackle just yet, but from what I understand, they offer players a truly difficult form of content to run once they’ve geared their characters properly, and Gazillion promises even better item rewards coming from this system.
Like any ARPG, progression comes primarily from the item hunt, but Marvel Heroes goes a step further with a new alternate advancement system called the Omega System. This is an account wide system that is a mix of EverQuest Alternate Advancement and Diablo III Paragon levels. Simply put, you earn experience towards the Omega System whenever you earn any sort of experience and you don’t need to be playing a level capped character to do it. Whenever you ‘level up’ your Omega experience bar you earn an Omega point and these points can be spent in the Omega system to unlock a variety of powerful effects for your character. Points earned are available to all characters just like Diablo III’s Paragon system, which is a definite plus.
The one caveat is that the Omega system feels almost needlessly complicated in the options available. There are just so many possibilities and combined with the time to earn points, the costs of certain nodes, and a UI that is a bit lacking in terms of providing adequate information, it can all be a bit overwhelming. It’s nice to be constantly working towards progression for my characters, but Gazillion could do more to clean up the system and make options easier to understand and plan for.


INNOVATION – 7
Marvel Heroes doesn’t break the mold when it comes to the ARPG, but what it does do differently is fully embrace its MMO elements. You won’t only encounter players in hubs; you’ll see them almost everywhere. Depending on your ability to suspend your disbelief, it can be a bit jarring seeing 10 Wolverines running around, but this has become less and less of an issue as the game’s roster grows. There are just so many characters that you aren’t always seeing the same ones running around anymore. Unlike most ARPGs, there’s also content in Marvel Heroes that is designed explicitly for groups, such as the aforementioned X-Defense and Raids.
POLISH – 7
Polish has been an issue with Marvel Heroes since launch and unfortunately that is still true today. Things have improved for sure, but the game is still buggier than it should be at this point and game performance runs the gamut from inconsistent to abysmal depending on the activity you’re participating in and the patch version you’re playing on. I’m running a beast of a rig and the game’s frame rate can fly all over the place, especially in the Midtown patrol zone.
I would say the UI is adequate, but just barely. What frustrates me most is the presentation of information. It’s still hard to make sense of a lot of the game’s numbers without having to resort to going to the game’s forums and other out of game resources. Why not take a page out of Diablo III’s book and give us an easier way to compare the effects of a new item at a glance? Or how about being able to find out the max roll of an item simply by looking at it? There’s a lot of information available in the UI, but it’s simply frustrating to digest at times.

LONGEVITY – 9
As we’ve discussed, there’s a pretty significant amount of content available to play through in Marvel Heroes and there’s new stuff coming to the game all the time, including both new characters and systems. With tons of characters to level, even more items to hunt, and the massive Omega alternate advancement system, you have a game that you can buckle down and play for the long haul. The only catch is that actual fresh new content to consume is slower to come to the game, so you’ll be running a lot of the same stuff over and over. To be fair, variety has continued to grow with time and running things over and over sort of comes with the territory for ARPGs anyway.
SOCIAL – 8
Marvel Heroes is both a group and solo friendly game. If you want to jump into the game and just solo through the vast majority of the game’s content, nothing will stand in your way. That said, the game is also rewarding in groups. Modes like X-Defense and Raids are exclusive to groups, but even running content that be played solo is often beneficial as a group. For example, repeatable Legendary (semi randomized repeatable quests) Quests in Midtown are far easier to complete in a group since other players’ kills count towards your quest even if they are in an entirely different area of the zone. Gazillion also recently introduced a Shared Quest system that directly encourages players to group up for a variety of content each day; though the rewards could be a bit better.
It’s simply easy to group up and play with others in Marvel Heroes and even if you aren’t into grouping you’ll often find non-committal opportunities to team up with other players in the form of zone events that you can dart in and out of as you please.
The one area that I feel Marvel Heroes could stand to improve on when it comes to its social experience is with guilds. The game features an incredibly barebones guild system at the moment and with how often characters team up in the comics I think this is an area of unmined potential that sticks out like a sore thumb.

VALUE – 10
How free is “Free-to-Play”? We have to ask this question with every F2P game we review and as for Marvel Heroes, it’s pretty damn free. Gazillion has adopted the League of Legends model where they primarily make their money off of cosmetics and boosts, while giving players the option to earn just about everything else, including characters, for free. When you start up the game and play for the first time you’ll be given a number of heroes to select from and whichever hero you select is yours to play forever. If that hero happens to also be your favorite Marvel character ever, well, you’re basically set.
Now, if you want to buy costumes for said hero, you’ll have to fork over some cash (costumes do drop, but don’t expect to see it happen), but other than that you don’t really need to spend a dime. You could plop a few bucks down for some increased bank space and maybe a Team Up (follower character) if you like, but you won’t find any barriers blocking you from playing through any of the game’s content.
CONCLUSION
Like Steve Rogers, Marvel Heroes initially had its heart in the right place, but was lacking everywhere else. Fortunately, the game has improved enough over the past year that the results are about as dramatic as Steve’s eventual transformation into Captain America via the Super Soldier Serum. It’s basically a whole new game at this point. If you’re looking for a game that effectively meshes elements of both the MMO and ARPG genres and you love (or don’t mind) the Marvel IP, you can’t really go wrong with Marvel Heroes.

Massively's MJ is of the opinion you can never play a super hero too often, so she's donning her cape and flying right back into more Marvel Heroes adventures. Only now there are even more heroes to choose from! That means some decisional paralysis might come into play. Which will she select? Will it be her long-time favorite Storm? What about Nightcrawler or Psylocke? Maybe she'll pull out an even newer hero to showcase! Regardless, it will be a mighty adventure of smashing bad guys -- along with nearby trashcans, cars, and hot dog carts. Join us live at 2:00 p.m. EDT for some super fun.

      • There is a new currency called Cosmic Worldstones. These stack to 9999 and will be added to the currency tab eventually, so as not to take up space.
      • This is a pretty hard core event and will return every month. Each month it will be iterated, adjusted, enhanced, etc. to be amazing and sweet.
      • There is a ton of cool stuff to find in the world and/or acquire from Moondragon using Cosmic Worldstones. Some of these items will require several events to earn. Example: The cosmetic pet "Cosmic Doop Companion" requires the highest number of Cosmic Worldstones (2000) and can't possibly be earned in one event weekend.
      This is Ben, helping out Tim and Matt. I'll also update this post when there is an update.

       Genese Davis : San Diego Comic Con Action-RPG Panel Insights

       Posted Aug 08, 2014 by Suzie Ford

       
       The San Diego Comic-Con showcased quite a few of our exciting video game panels, one of which was focused on the Action-RPG genre. David Brevik (Gazillion Entertainment) visionary behind Diablo and Diablo II, Jared Gerritzen (Major League Gaming), David Eddings (Gearbox Software), James Schmalz (Digital Extremes), and Chris Lee (En Masse Entertainment) joined me on location to discuss the evolution of Action-RPGs.

      The San Diego Comic-Con showcased quite a few of our exciting video game panels, one of which was focused on the Action-RPG genre. David Brevik (Gazillion Entertainment) visionary behind Diablo and Diablo II, Jared Gerritzen (Major League Gaming), David Eddings (Gearbox Software), James Schmalz (Digital Extremes), and Chris Lee (En Masse Entertainment) joined me on location to discuss the evolution of Action-RPGs. From turn-based to real-time action, it was a pleasure to hear from the movers and shakers on how far the Action-RPG genre has come and where the genre could be going in the future.

      Quote

      We began the panel with a brief glimpse into the history of Action-RPGs. When asked which Action-RPGs have influenced their gaming career, David Brevik referenced how Moria was the basis for Diablo. The entire action RPG genre came into its own at that point in time. Jared jumped in and mentioned how Diablo defined this genre by combining first-person shooter twitch-like movements with an RPG. It was both shocking and captivating. David Eddings mentioned how Zork was one of the first action RPGs because, while it was all text, the player still felt that compelling gameplay aspect that Action-RPGs offer. Other panelists mentioned Kingdom Hearts and Borderlands being influential Action-RPGs. The Legend of Zelda was also mentioned as one of the first influential action games where the player’s really cared about the characters.
      The panelists went on to discuss how the genre has changed and evolved mentioning how Final Fantasy’s turn-based games gave the player the ability to watch his/her character navigate the world. In addition, how procedurally generated games such as Diablo II gave players the option to play the game over and over. Multiplayer function is great for the genre because players get to create and maintain long-distance friendships.
      The RPG aspect, of course, is a very big part of this Action genre, the panelists said. This discussion point led to the panelists describing how much RPGs in general have impacted the game industry at large. Lee mentioned how RPG elements are in nearly every game out there from online gaming, to social elements, to the evolution of characters. Eddings mentioned that AAA developers' goal when creating any RPG is to fulfill the player’s fantasy of being the hero, a race car driver, a football star, ultimate fighter, etc.

      From there we moved in to the evolution of games. Schmalz agreed with other panelists that they could foresee a future game coming out and lasting for six or seven years because of the amount of transmedia, new content, lore, and evolution of characters that can be infused into one game. Lee feels that most games will shift in to this perpetual existence, meaning there will be no more sequels, just games that are released and go on with updates and new content.

      When asked where the industry is going in the future, the panelists described how building communities and keeping players interested is key. Brevik mentioned how developers can’t ignore what players want because they are so many entertainment options out there competing with any given video game. For instance, Marvel Heroes is updated every week. It wasn't good at first, he said, but by building and communicating with audiences, we were able to improve the game and want to continue improving it based on our communities feedback.

      In talking abut this perpetually existing game, the topic of Free to Play merging with Action-RPGs also came up. F2P allows for a free trial that developers hope will turn into paid subscribers, Gerritzen said. The challenge for developers is the need to pay employees salaries balanced against what the community wants. While ads can pull the player out of the gaming experience and pay to win exploits the customer, pay to decorate or customize your character is a better option when utilizing the free to play model, Eddings added.

      Gerritzen mentioned that regardless of all this, a good game is the bottom line. No one will pay to play a bad game. Community is paramount. This is not like the movie industry where the audience's needs can be guessed or ignored. Without the community's needs being fulfilled, there is no game and ultimately, no jobs.
      The Action-RPG genre is an intriguing and mega-fun genre, that is sure to continue surprising and exciting us in the future. I’d like to extend my heartfelt thanks to David Brevik, James Schmalz, Chris Lee, David Eddings, Jared Gerritzen, Gazillion Entertainment, Major League Gaming, Digital Extremes, En Masse Entertainment, Gearbox Software, and the countless producers, supporters, and fans. Thank you for your dedication and passion for the industry and for your valuable time.

       @Doomsaw just spoiled some stuff about Pet-Tech on the livestream:

       Some tidbits I picked up on from Doomsaw in the chat.
       

       Tribal, info on Jubilee for you
       
       

       The last note was when asked who is a future 200 ES hero if they were made. So Elektra will be 200 ES when she eventually joins the game some day.
       



       
      • All cosmetic pets are gonna be upgraded to cybernetic pets for free.
      • You would be able to unlock green, blue, purple, cosmic and unique nodes on them.
      • To unlock these nodes you would have to donate items of the specific type.
      • Cosmic nodes give bonuses to powers, while green, blue and purple nodes give bonuses to things like health, defense, damage and spirit.
      • You can reroll each node almost for free at crafter, allowing you to mix and match them to customize your hero.
      • Each pet can have different cybernetic upgrades.
      • You would be able to buy random pets for splinters.
      • There might be a craftable pet in future.
      • Pets are not going to be bound to heroes, allowing you to swap them between characters easily.
      • There would be a new "vacuum" feature. When you click a bindable key (default "J") all green, blue and purple on the ground are being automatically picked up and donated to your pet. This would help to unlock all the stuff.
      • If you have the max rank for every node on your pet the items are going to be converted to a small amount of credits (about 1% of the regular sell amount).
      • Cosmics and uniques cannot be vacuumed, and they would have to be dragged manually on the pet. You can also manually donate any green, blue or purple item.
      • You don't have to put your pet out to use Pet-Tech.
      This would allow to accomplish the following things:
       
      • Every pet is useful.
      • Performance will be better because loot won't stay on the ground.
      • Players would have something to do with big loot explosions even if there isn't anything useful in particular.
      • MOAR CUSTOMIZATION!11

      The vacuum feature is completely agnostic as to whether you have a pet out. You don't have to have a pet out, as long as you have a pet in your inventory you can press 'J' and vacuum. It's just attached to the pet for flavor.
       What if you only have one pet? We are going to allow people to get copies of some random cosmetic pets for splinters. We may also have a craftable pet.

      @DrNo:The rest of the chat from tonight.

      Shadowcat, Dr. Doom, Winter Soldier, and Nick Fury confirmed for next Advance Pack. Elektra confirmed for 200 ES. Now all I need to hear is a release date for Mayday Parker and my life is 45% complete. Bonus points if Nick comes with Maria Hill and Agent Coulson as Enhanced costumes.
