DCUO Development Update - May 2022

  1. Incineration Inferno New Player

    I know that I am fairly new to posting on the forums here but I have been a player since the beginning and am now what you would call a veteran at elite end game. I am writing this post not to bash the devs or any players but to address the concerns I've had in the game over the past few months/years. I have also come back late late last year after a 2year break and spine surgery and am playing catch up to where I was so please forgive me.

    1.) The DLC's with only one raid (Thses are becoming boring and very old, it is also causing several people to reach burn out way to soon and stop logging in altogether)
    2.) New DLC's not dropping every 4 months anymore(Again I can understand you are short staffed and trying to rebuild your development team so I have learned to be patient and understanding during thus time. I'm just not hoping thus is becoming the new standard or normal for this game.)
    3.) The CR/Stat nerf was not a good idea, or at the very least was handled poorly (You have no idea how many people have spoken to me in a negative way about this. The Omnibus should have been an additional que option for obtaining source marks & rewards, not replacing the old system as a whole. I enjoy a good challenge in content ei. Elite plus, and above, but their are a very select few feats(small %) in game that are still not achievable for most unless we go back and get them after getting higher CR/Stats. This has caused some players(not all) to have to run with speed hackers to get and I refused to run with a them to get a few SP's I need to finish the game. The older que system was much fast and not near as lagging, just select your role to que in ect. The older system where no one was nerf needs to at least be brought back as an option so some of us missing a few feats can go back and be at 100% completion on DLC's again but for zero source marks, Omnibus could be for the source marks rewards runs.
    4.) Generator Mods update Please (These are seriously out dated in most cases and not scaled properly anymore for what we're up against(tac mods, henchmen, accomplish, even orbital strikes are starting to feel weaker)and most of the tact mods in backs and legs aren't really even viable for most loadouts)
    5.) On a positive not I am looking very very foward to the 4th artifact slot whenever that comes, just wants in game already have amazing Tank ideas.
    6.) New base layout/League Hall layout & increased item counter please( A few leaguemates and I were build something amazing in a large room in LH and we could easily be over 1,000 just in a small part of it, so how about much much larger animated league hall base items during seasonal like the cascading rock water falls etc that could fill up from top of ceiling to the floor, blankets of fog that scale from ceilings to floors you can actually walk through, etc.
    7.)A Lantern Healing Power during next time it's healing powers turn (I know this one is awaiting more staff and I understand).

    I'm sure there's more ideas but that's all I can come up with at the moment, and please forgive all my grammatical errors

    Thanks for listening

    Hi Panderus,

    I'm actually curious about something.

    You're working on a native PS5 client, but what if any PC client improvements are being worked on?

    From what I understand and Im wondering if you can confirm at all, but isn't the PC an old console port?

    Is anything being worked on with respect to making the PC client perform better or even offer better stability?

    This memory leak causing the game to crash endlessly has been left to persist now for months with little sign or word regarding any sort of improvement or fix?

    Running events from the House of Legends only exacerbates the problem because it's a hotspot in the game beginning the memory leak, so adding more events running from there is only further exacerbating a negative PC experience...

    Anything you can share with respect to this?

    hate to burst ur bubble, but they never said they were adding a 4th one. an employee simply gave their opinion, appropriately in context, in a thread discussing hypotheticals where others were giving their opinions/ideas. the employee simply stated their opinions on the subject, and others, like yourself, have taken that out of context to mean "its happening boys"....its not :p

    i love Save the Universe, it's the one time they fix/re-tune old omni content and make it more playable/enjoyable due to the enormous amount of feedback/complaining and data they collect ;)

    bring it on!!!!

    Thank you for your sharing of this post

    I was regarding the coment that Charon made about this, they never said not happening they said "IF" they were to do this, I have multiple artifacts waiting at 200 and just can't swap out every 5 seconds to the next one, that would be ridiculous and not practical. 4 artifacts slot is enough and perfect in my opinion especially when you are running feats in Elite plus 3 and 4 ect not to mention what's to come in the future. With so many options just for Tank alone for Multiple ads with Bosses to Single Boss with alot of Health alot of choices that are viable currently in game that aren't getting utilized, I have armories saved depending and still I'm short one way of another. It's just my feeling from play for so long and alot of the people I've ran with and have spoken to feel the same(granted not all players) a 4th slot is needed, more than that of course not but definitely 4.

    I really don't see anything big happening in particular here, the only thing that is big is the waiting for the next Episode. The first question that comes to mind of course: Will all this wait even be worth it? If the past few Episodes is of any indication....

    A new SM in sight but no balance updates, yeah feels like a pointless release imo. It will just be the same cheese and exploits dominating another SM. Atleast the loyal customers can enjoy another set of cashgrabs over the next few months though, hippedy hoppedy doo!
  9. Morning wood New Player

    And just you make sure it includes the EXACT SAME Comic Shaded Material as last time, only this time as a FREQUENT drop, so more people can get it without having to spend BILLIONS in in-game cash! :p

    Really disappointed to learn that the update of supercharges and abandoned, can we please have an update of travel modes instead. Because currently this is what I think is creating the most imbalance in the game.

    Honestly, this was an exciting update, I just wish there were more details, I have at least a thousand questions.
    I will limit myself to 4.
    - What tier are the new allies?
    - What is homecoming?
    - Where will SM be set?
    - What theme will STU be?

    & kudos for not locking the beetle style behind a time capsule. That's definitely worthy of a hat tip.

    Could we integrate the forums to the chat tab in game?, it would be awesome not to log onto the pc or phone to go on forums and do it directly in game!

    Mepps, would you PLEASE elaborate on what the new booster bundle is. Even if you can't fully explain it now, could we atleast get a hint?

    Will the new booster bundle be bringing back all previous old styles? Or will it be revamped versions of old styles?

    what are some things returning? will we finally be able to pick what we get?

    dudes I just want the black neon, I know that's out of a tc but its been a sad few years of me spamming every stabilizer I get into these boxes and it never drops... last bonus stabilizer I opened 50 of them in a row.. miserable existence
  19. Reinheld Devil's Advocate

    Good god no. Would you really want these forums to start looking like LFG, Trade and shout chat?

    Now...a link to a 'readable' version, so people could check for info and updates...sure. But nothing they could log in and post with. Leave that nonsense in game.....we've got enough here most days already.
  20. Reinheld Devil's Advocate

    But you understand opening 50 is the point, right? If they made it so you could select your loot at will, you'd have bought 1 or 2 only. Thats 48 bucks left on the table. This is why they don't put these things on the MP too...why would anyone buy 50 stabilizers if you could get that neon for $10 in the MP 100% guaranteed?

    And I'd guess Proxy is right. We'll see a return of the old BB items...maybe even ALL the OG stuff, but I'm kind of hoping it's just the standard stuff, not the 'top' ones....although, I doubt that would drive sales. I'd guess it will be a-la the resurge caps where we'll get a few choices, and on occasion, one will be an OG item...similar to how in a resurge you on occasion will see the Black Hole Accessory or Sparking/Scorching Aura, and sometimes the 3 choices are 'meh'. Time will tell, but unfortunately...you will need to keep digging for that Black Neon...it won't be there.
