I read a preview of CoV which had one section that concerned me:

Quote:
The only potential snafu is the price model. Nothing is set in stone, but if you own City of Heroes you won't get to play City of Villains for free. There will most likely be an additional monthly fee. (Just how much that is going to be is not yet known.) You won't need the original game to play City of Villains; it's a standalone game that just happens to blend itself in with the original.


The preview has info on how they are doing CoV which had a lot of neat things.  Unfortunately, CoV looks to be PvP dependant so not sure how that would appeal to those like Mongo.  But the above statement is a big turn off to this game for me.  It makes sense in a way, as CoH and CoV ARE two different games, but since they are linked together... I just hope they come up with a plan that you pay a (drastically) reduced price if you subscribe to both games.

Where'd you get this? I hadn't heard anything about additional monthly fees, just that you'd have to buy CoV, and CoH players wouldn't have access to the CoV features (bases, PvP zones, playing villains) unless they bought it.

Of course, I'd prolly buy it anyway. Hell, there's a 'Bloodsabre Pirates' franchise that needs villains. Or maybe Ultra Mega Power Force. They're evil enough.

I read about CoV from Gamespy's Preview.

How is it so far Haven? And how compatable with CoH is it? How possible is it that perhaps some remenant from Team BEB could reactivate to thwart your evil plans?

NDA, yo. I can't say much. This is not yet the Pre-order portion of the Beta, so...

I will say this: Refreshingly dark.

An e-mail in Glistam's spam folder wrote:
Last night we announced some BIG news. City of Heroes® subscribers will pay no additional monthly fee to play City of Villains™. For City of Heroes® players who purchase City of Villains™, simply add the City of Villains™ serial code to your existing City of Heroes® account using the UPGRADE button on your PlayNC™ account management page... and set off for The Rogue Isles™! To do this, be sure to follow the instructions for 'Existing City of Heroes® Account Holders' on the City of Villains™ pre-order instruction page.

City of Villains™ is also available as a stand-alone game. Players who do not own City of Heroes® and players who choose not to upgrade their existing City of Heroes® account will pay the full monthly fee (same price structure as City of Heroes®).

City of Villains Head-Start Weekend is here! K3llion, Fyredancer and I are in... and it's surprisingly good. There's a lot in the game that got left out of Beta.

The water's fine. We're on Pinnacle if anyone else Pre-Ordered. Come on in!

Self-Bump, due to retail release:

Pinnacle server

We have supergroup, and the humble beginnings of a base. The name? 3.V.I.L. of course. (Working title is "3 Villains International, LLC. We're taking offers for better. Especially when we get more than 3 Villains.)

K3llion: Bounty, Threat Level 11 Merc/Trick Arrow Mastermind

Fyredancer: The adorable Kittyn, Threat Level 2 Necromancy/Dark Mastermind

Haven: Terror Angel, Threat Level 7 Psi/Psi Dominator

CoV is a serious upgrade to CoH. Bases and PvP are just the tip of the iceberg. The 5 new Archetypes don't play anything like the Heroes. Missions and mob AI are much improved. They added Ragdoll physics... much fun with knockbacks and Levitate.

There's also a 'Create your own' mission thing, where you take articles in the paper, and come up with your own schemes. Bounty's there, I'm not big enought o try this out yet.

At 15, you can get into the free-fire PvP zones, and duke it out with the goody-goody types.

Villains are capped at 40 right now, heroes at 50. My money is still on the bad guys. An average level 10 Villain is offensively far more powerful than a level 10 Hero. We'll see how this plays out in actual combat (Especially against someone like Mongo's "Immovable Object" of a Force Field defender). On the downside, no full-time healers. The baddies get most of the Defender buff sets as secondaries (Corruptor AT) but Empathy isn't a choice.


So! I'm not ready to give up WoW (I WILL hit 60, damnit.) but this is great for when I just wanna go break shit. Highly recommended if you have the time and money.

Well I didn't know it was already running. I won't pick it up for at least another month though because I am back out in about a week.

If I don't have CoV can I still interact with your villians? Arctic Hellfire shoul dstill exist, as I don't believe they ever wipe character data.
