"Finally we decided that we could give the Rocket Board to players as a travel power but, again, because putting in a new travel power would mean re-animating every single animation in the game to blend into it properly, we decided to make it similar to "Walk" in that it turned off all powers but let the player fly around the world at Level 2 if they chose to and would be faster than running or flight."

In other words, "Since we were too lazy to suppress animations that only required foot movement, we decided to make the power useless by keeping the player from using any other power."

The fact that it turns off all powers is a major downside. Major. They should figure out a better way to handle the animations, like maybe a high mag hold in the surfer pose. I almost want, but no.

The only hard question about the rocket board is : how did they manage to botch the Freedom launch so badly ?

For us Euros, the servers came back up at around 2am and for today they will make us enjoy another 5+ hours downtime.

The known issue list (http://boards.cityofheroes.com/showthread.php?t=271452 ) is particularly funny - you need to repeatedly login until you find your server ?

Somehow, I'm happy that I don't have time to play until saturday this week :)

@Ogged

Not launch, VIP pre-launch. ;) I'm sure someone at NC would be quick to point that out. *Actual* launch is next week. :p

But yeah, I feel ya. I made a new Blaster and couldn't continue past the tutorial due to the bugs.

@Ogged

It's clear that we're working out the kinks in the system before the masses get to check it out. We're die hard fans anyway, what's a 10 hour downtime for us? :)

Pro-tip for those doing the tutorial with the store down: the contact telling you to buy the Knowledgeable badge has a second option that lets you skip that.

And after all these years...

...still NO Motorcycles for my Motorcycle-using characters! >:(

And yes, they can add it in simply or as a sub-set to super-speed. And I've typed long walls of text (on mostly CO and DCUO Beta forums) as to how.

Grr...

@Space Cobra

All these years and your sense of entitlement goes unfulfilled. Aw.
