Hello everyone. I used to play up until December 2017 but I'm now installing the game again because I am absolutely burnt out on GW2 right now. I've tried other games but DCUO's excellent combat system prevents me from enjoying 90% of other MMOs. With that said, I had some general questions to ask while the game is installing (55 minutes left) so that I could hopefully be prepared for what I see in game (usually not a fan of surprises). PvP is a non factor unfortunately. In MMOs where combat is great, PvP somehow suffers (DCUO, GW2). When the combat is mediocre, PvP is active (ESO). When PvP is great, PvE is awful and the game is very P2W (BnS, BDO). So I'll do my best to refrain from mentioning it as I have no choice but to rely on console games for decent PvP. So here we go: 1. How heavily does one need to rely on time capsules? As stated in the first paragraph, I've been absent for over a year and I have less than 250 skill points. So I'm afraid that a vast amount of skill points are hidden in time capsules and that I would have to gamble to try and catch up. 2. How important are skill points? 3. Could someone explain augments please? 4. How are the queue times for each tier? Do you *feel* like there has been a drop in population or do you feel like it has gone up? 5. Have they made any QoL updates? I'm not sure I would like to sub so I will likely just buy most of the DLCs but I'm not sure if I have it in me to deal with a severe cash up, especially since I'm used to being rich. 6. How is the open world? Is it active? Are there world bosses? How are the quests? I saw some of the Aquaman content and it looks freaking cool. 7. How is the content? Has there been a lot of solo content since December 2017 or is it mostly group content? 8. Has LPvE received any changes? 9. Have promethium lockboxes been updated/improved? How is the marketplace? 10. Lastly, how is the balance (DPS). I'm mostly interested in sorcery, quantum, gadgets, mental, electricity, and rage. I don't care for the others right now. How is the weapons balance too? My ideal character would use one handed or martial arts most of the time along with these powers.
