    Here's a thought, how about when the new HQ is made add a teleporter that lets you select any old content and walk in with any sized group unclamped giving us the option to run as a smaller group or solo it if we choose.

    it looks like the boat has well & truly sailed on that one, mate, at least for the foreseeable future. I've been wanting adjustable queue sizes / solo entry for old content for yarons, a lot of us on here have, but I can't see it happening now. it would run completely counter to what they're trying to do with this update. I know it sucks, but who knows? maybe this will work. maybe the queues will be popping left right & centre & stat clamping won't suck. you never know.

    oh, something I meant to ask. can't remember if it's already been answered. I know marks are being removed from endgame content, but are we still getting an event version of the latest dlc where you earn that dlc's currency & marks, like we do now? or are event versions going away?

    So just to make sure I get this straight (@MEPPS) you’re going to go down the route of stat clamping every piece of “non” endgame contact further erasing the value and effort that players seasoned ones at that for those who have put effort into this game? Not only would start clamping do what I just said but it would also remove the benefits/stat buffs and value that come from all the artifacts people have leveled up outside of course of may be the support roles. So it’s not enough that you guys broke PVP with stat clamping and it’s not enough that you make the seasonal events a headache unworthy of dealing with but now you have to go down the route of taking a fat dump on the entire game? This coming of course over a year after the promise of “making stats matter”. In addition to the changes that you guys are proposing now we would have to work for old contact to get the source marks to pay for the stuff we need right now on top of having to run the new contact to remain relevant in the game. Literally ensuring we will be working twice as hard to get what we’re already getting now only further down the road. This entire proposal is nothing but a series of bad decisions that only leave The season players with one question to ask that being can I get a refund for all the money and time I spent here?

    There are plenty of more important issues that have been brought up multiple times for multiple years that the developers have either ignored or refused to fix. There are discrepancies with powers not working the way they are supposed to and they have been that way for years now. We still have reoccurring glitches with an older contacts some of them even in relevant content they have not been addressed. It wasn’t too long ago that you guys took six months to fix a “top issue” in regards to ice not working the way it was supposed to. During that time you guys dropped three seasonals and two episodes. It makes it incredibly hard to get excited about new content and “changes” to the game when the current issues remain on resolved and your failure to address them does not leave me or many others for that matter with confidence that these changes will be positive ones.

    I mean instead of doing the across-the-board stat clamp to all “non-endgame contacts“ you guys could just apply a terminal at the entrance to every map that will allow people to increase the difficulty level of it the way we can do that in flash to the future elite. At least this way people get what they want where they can increase the difficulty level and it also ensures that nobody loses the stats that they’ve been spending time building up. While you’re at it you could put more of those terminals that let us skip the cut scenes. Stuff like that would be especially helpful in speed runs like Batcave breach.

    Well, I realy hope that before this update, they just finish the first revamp...

    Also, the change I realy like to see is that they'll starting co-operate with the developers from the Arkham series and improve the characters graphic. Oh, and re-work the awful sound work of Hypolita and the useless Harley. You know what I am talking about.

    1. Nothing has changed with members having access to all powers, it just means members “own” the power and is able to create an alt with any power or through buying a power respec token to change a alt to any power they want , so armories should remain the same as is, since members would need to buy a power respec token just to change powers, the armories become invalid to activate, so there’s no way armories could hold every power because it becomes invalid when u switch and have to reimprint the armory just for it to start working again

    2. I believe once u are maxed, that’s it, believe members had 32 (? I don’t have max slots) and I heard something about premium only able to buy 16 slots

    The most anyone can buy is 16 slots. If you are premium, that puts you to 22, leaving room for the +10 membership would add for 32. If you are member, you are already at 16, but can only add 16 more for the max.

    F2P can't really add any slots as if they add 1, the are no longer F2P....then they can only add 15 more just like everyone else.

    I can understand some of your concerns about being "forced" to run not-end-game content in order to get source marks. However, you have two options either get good and farm it or refuse to farm it and instead buy it from the marketplace.
    The world is full of options you either move on or you stay in the past. This changes are what this game needs to stay up-to-date with the other MMOs of the same genre.
    So again, less complain and more merit in the feats you gain, Win-Win.

    Or I can take the third option and spend my time and money elsewhere since apparently they’re going to force this decision down the throats of the player community. I mean why bother to play a game where the Developers are not going to fix powers that they have intentionally broken. As for the whole grind more well over the 500 skill point marker so I am by no means a noob. I have competed in every survival mode and started out on this game just prior to the PlayStation 3 network hack of 2011. Unlike you I’ve been here long enough to remember and endure this crap that they’re selling when they did the Nerf to electric and nature. I’ve been here long enough to witness them Nerf rage tanking three separate times. I was here when gadgets had the energy matrix shield. I can remember when they came up with an idiotic concept of advanced mechanics they eraced the value and the difference that skill points made. I’ve been here long enough to watch them change this game to one flavor of the month after another completely destroying the need to be anything else other than the top powers because everything was made to be so broken and unplayable that you were forced into this consistent nonstop change. If you actually are foolish enough to believe that stack clamping and Nerfing The player community further is going to be beneficial I got a bridge to sell you.

    i am not a fan of most new skins and would wish to leave the old skins in old content as they were and if you realy want to include generic new skins (superman and doomsday are especially ugly) please do so when they appear in new content. omnibus should be giving the option to play the game as it was, so make them look as they were aswell please! and each time a new skin gets made by someone, have a dev poll about wheter or not it is actually looking better than what was before. look at my forum avatar: doomsday was so much cooler once!
