I have a love/hate relationship with the Circle. They look amazing but can be tough and that one labyrinthine map with all the portals is a b*tch.

"I hate CoT". That's the most frequent meme I heard when teaming in COH. Their maps are the most painful to navigate (caves and worse the oranbegan labirinths with the portals that teleport and split groups) and the -acc debuff they place on you are a pain to fight against...

@lmollea While I agree about the maps, if you have the right power choices the Circle can be the easiest group in the game to beat. Every mob type has its Achilles Heel, and the circle is no different.

I always loved the Circle of Thorns as a villain group, but those new WoW inspired 'robes' with giant shoulder pads are terrible looking.

I love the look of the new CoT (the original CoT look was designed TEN YEARS ago!) but I still hate fighting them in the 20-30 range where they become extremely tough. Fortunately, their god gets its butt kicked in the story line, so they get much weaker in the 40-50 game.

Put me on the side of people that love the Circle. Sure, I've been frustrated a time or two in Orenbega, but I really like the enemy group overall.

'unless some other big chunk of news blindsides me.'

How about the Halloween costume pack? There can't be enough talk about how awesome the Think Tank is!

The Oranbegan maps can be a bit painful to navigate at times, but the group is pretty neat I think. They can be tough with some archetypes and level ranges to fight, but does not make them a bad group.

Overall I like the costume update also and it is better than the version they had in beta.

Ah, yes. I remember well my reaction to the new Circle of Thorns.

"CoT with boobs? What madness is this?!"

I do like the new look. It makes them more fun and vibrant. For some reason those old robes always had a creepy vibe for me.
