Really no huge surprises, 4 arm characters add a HUGE amount of work for animations (basically every animation in the game has to be redone), for a rather minor gain (not too high % of character concepts require 4 arms, and I doubt it would offer a mechanical advantage without basically everyone running around with 4 arms then). Rotating / scaling tattoos is engine work, even though STO does allow such, Reverse shoving it in the existing implementation would likely still take some work.

Persistent additions are just more logical than "attack" events since it allows something at all times, also any "event" will become less meaningful the more of such exist.

I always love the screenshots for this game. Does the game get less shallow feeling after the starting zones? Thats all i ever got to see in the previews.

Hey Thac0 today is your lucky day! i actually have a full account i have been meaning to give away. (as in retail box, 30 days unlimited) and if you want we can work out the details.


To answer your question. The character customization as far as powers and such go is really deep and interesting. A lot of the content feels "meh" as its just quest grind and you have a hard time feeling invested in the character at some points. However when you find a decent group for dungeons it can be pretty fun. And the difficulty slider lets you choose to set things to "not mind numbingly easy to plow through"

This is not the type of article that champions needs. They should be toting what TO expect, not what is NOT TO BE expected.

The game sinks down even further. :( So sad.
