Issue 13 has a bunch of changes coming for City of Heroes. For those of you who quit the game, I recommend checking out what's coming and re-evaluating. It's a stepping stone for an even bigger release, issue 14, but there's still some good stuff happening here.

-Revamping PvP: A lot of powers are being re-adjusted for PvP battles. Whether it's good or bad, it's at least a change that's suppossed to be good and allow for better balancing.

-Levelling pacts: Two characters level 5 or below will be able to "Pact" themselves together in order to never outlevel each other again. What this means is that whether or not both characters are logged in, any xp one character makes is evenly divided between both characters. So for their entire careers, they will always have receive the exact same XP even if they are not online. This is very exciting to me. Leedon and I already have our level 3 villains ready to pact together and tear up the Isles.

-New Power: Who doesn't like shields? I checked them out on Test and they seem like a nice mix between Defense and Resistance, with the ability to give defense to others and also gain defense from having allies around you. The visual effects of the various shield designs are nice too.

-Day Jobs: Your characters will actually get something for being logged out, depending on where they log out. There are temp powers that can be unlocked, costume pieces, and badges. Plus, you can combine some of the jobs into other jobs, also gaining other temp powers.

I'm not sure when issue 13 goes live, but I'm pretty sure it's before the end of the month.

That does sound cool but I'm hardly even playing War now. I started playing indoor soccer again last week and that is taking up most of the free time I had been using for playing games.

I think for the moment I'm pretty much done with massives, at least until SWTOR comes out.

Not that I expect this is a deal maker or breaker for anyone, but I just discovered the other day that there is another powerset coming out for Villains: Pain Domination. It's the Empathy set slightly re-tooled for sadomasochistic character concepts. It's available as a Corruptor and Mastermind secondary.

Holy shit it's live

And they gave Taunt an awesome secondary ability and actually made it potentially useful to scrappers.
