    Hello folks!

    This is the thread I'll be monitoring most closely for any questions, concerns, or general feedback regarding any of the new 'Riddled With Crime' Amusement Mile Gang War / open-world missions.

    To get started, you should receive a mission from Batwoman or Talia directing you to where you need to go.

    Please let me know if you're playing as a hero or a villain if you find an issue.

    Thanks for helping us to further test this new content on the PCTest server. We appreciate it!

    I'm trying to do the "Pop Quiz" mission where you take down 5 Problem Solvers. The orange mission area defined on the map is fairly large, but I'm only seeing the Problem Solvers spawn in a small area as highlighted on the map below:

    Either the map location box needs to be reduced or the Problem Solvers need to spawn in additional areas.

    There isn't really another appropriate thread to post this in, right now, but:

    The Joker's Checklist collection has 2 "#4"'s in it.

    The second collection is "#4 Off the Bat" and the fourth collection is "#4 Off Robin". With the exception of Off the Bat, all the other collection pieces appear in the correct order, numbered 1-14. So I think Off the Bat needs to be changed to "#2 Off the Bat".

    The Rocket mission has to be my favorite part of this episode! Great job!

    Was a little bit disappointed by the bounty. It was great to see many old enemies who we haven't faced for a long time make an appearance in bounty form (Clayface, Deathstroke, Harley) but it wasn't really challenging. I didn't even realise at first that I had defeated a bounty until discovering the mission was no longer in my journal.

    I'd like to see either the existing bounties upgraded to an 8-player daily bounty with a raid-level version of the NPC or an additional bounty added designed for 8-players.

    The reason I'd like to see this is because the episode is a little bit light on 8-player content and while an additional raid is definitely off the table, I don't think an 8-player bounty would be too much work to get implemented (you did it for the Starro event, during the event, after all).

    Just a suggestion.

    Yep, the bounties are so weak that we can solo them. I would love to see their health and difficulty increased like Eclipso, Ghost and the rest from Age of Justice Episode.

    Bug: Man-Bat Commando Animation Bug (0:03)
    Man-Bat Commandos take a knee whilst waiting to engage you. Upon engaging a Man-Bat Commando, they will turn upside down for a second, before falling and flipping to a standing position. I've captured this happening in a video:


    Bug: No Sound Effect for Man-Bat's "Sonic Stun" ability (0:13)

    The Sonic Stun attack doesn't have any sound effect. Not sure if this is intended or not as other characters with similar abilities tend to have some sort of sound effect.

    I agree. Make it like the dox bounty now. I like getting in groups with ppl to do that with AoJ. Also liked the big groups for the starro bounty that was added.

    I think the Dox bounty would be a good difficulty to shoot for. Not 8 man like Starro or the AoJ weekly bosses, but Dox is good. Also, keep in mind before recommending too difficult content that we don't know the vendor prices yet, lol, and a long bounty (like a Weekly Boss) every day may get pretty tiresome after a while, lol.

    Well starro was 1 boss not 4 different ones. And when even a decent size group was on em he went down quickly. But i would rather it be like the dox bounty. I was really only using starro as a comparison of a world boss where a group was also needed.

    Poison Ivy doesn't have any dialogue while fighting her.

    Should there really be manbats in this area? Don't we canonically come here before doing the alert? Also had Kirk Langstrom already become the original manbat before the episode started?
  15. Torikumu 10000 Post Club

    Thinking about it, a daily 8-person bounty might be a bit overkill. So I'd agree with other suggestions of balancing the existing bounties around the 4-player Paradox Bounties in Time Torn Area 51 from Episode 28.

    However, I'd still like to see something for larger groups.

    I was flying around the open world area and stumbled upon a car park across the river from Amusement Mile which doesn't really have anything going on (except a bunch of Joker goons in it). I think this would be the perfect spot to spawn an Open World bounty:


    Here's a concept piece I threw together.

    The idea I'm thinking of here is an extremely tough weekly bounty designed to be tackled by both heroes and villains, similarly to the Starro bounty and the Episode 28 bounties.

    I decided to run with Bane in the concept pic. The idea being that the concept for the bounty would be "Bane has amped himself up on Venon and is out of control. Stop him before he causes any major damage"

    Perhaps it could involve mechanics, such as his shield phase, where people have to throw barrels at him to weaken him, as per his usual encounters.

    I also thought maybe they could do:
    • A giant Clayface - "Clayface has grown stronger. Stop him before he destroys the city!".
    • A giant Scarecrow with hallucination visual effects on him - "A cloud of Scarecrows fear toxin has engulfed Amusement Mile and the surrounding area. Stop the giant Scarecrow hallucination to put an end to your suffering".
    Perhaps they could rotate through all 3 different bosses, similar to how they rotate through Ultra Humanite, Eclipso, Gentleman Ghost and Solomon Grundy.

    Not Sure if this is just me:

    I completed the Ep 29 collection - no mail

    I completed the open world investigations - no mail

    Logged out, waited 20 minutes, logged back in and still nothing

    Sounds amazing honestly. And when you saying challenging for a large group it reminds me of the doctor light bounty in wotl2. Would be a 10 minute fight with 40 people attacking him.

    Mission: Barrel Bomb Disposal
    Feedback: This isn't a bug, just an observation. Is it possible to make it where the countdown timers for the barrel bombs don't begin until you start to interact with them? At the moment, they start to count down when you're in a certain range (medium range). The problem? Anyone with Flight Movement can go supersonic (you don't really aggro adds much in this zone) and be a real jerk, lol. I can clear the whole area of bombs just by zipping past in a few seconds.

    The respawn timers on the bombs are pretty good though, but if someone wants to be irritating, it's really easy to do here.

    More feedback: The Mission we get from Query is really cool in principle. In practice, it's aweful. The Riddler's clues in other content actually takes some thinking to discover. Here, the first riddle is like that, about the first kiss, etc. The rest after that are really, really lame. Seriously.

    Now, I get that you have to make the riddles kind of easy (but not this mind-numbingly easy, lol) but keep in mind each box gives you a rough area to look in, so it's pretty hard to get lost, lol. Plus the boxes are bright green with a huge question mark on them.

    Otherwise you might-as-well go with, "Riddle me this: I'm on top of a structure that rhymes with Solar Toaster. I should roll and coast to get there. Add an R to the end of Rolle and Coaste. Where am I?"
