Hello everyone. After a 14-month break from playing this game (spent most of my time on another MMO instead), I've re-installed the game this weekend and it's refreshing. Having played a couple of other big name MMOs, it has widened my perspective and lead me to appreciate some things about DCUO. That said, since I didn't have too much to do this weekend I played DCUO pretty extensively and wanted to share my experience. PROS: - I'm not sure how popular this opinion is, but I enjoy the combat. It feels more like skill plays a factor, rather than your combat rating. I've seen superpowered focused, weapon focused, and hybrid focused players all do well on the leaderboards and with each power. For those who aren't aware, electricity and nature used to be very bad with little hopes of even doing half as well as your teammates. The combo powers also struggled. And yes even though there does seem to be a common pattern for DPS builds, there is still significantly more build variety than there was. The balance is substantially better than in some other games now. Also, I have always loved the combat so that's one reason I'm glad to be back. - Unfortunately, I haven't gotten the chance to play the DLC I have been demanding since 2013-2014, the Titans episode, but I have been playing some of the Atlantis one and it's refreshing. The art team definitely did their thing on the open world and I appreciate the swimming they added. I've been asking for an Atlantis DLC since 2015 so I'm glad it has been added. I do wish that Atlantis was a little larger though. Anyways, the content seems to be higher quality than it was for most of 2016 and 2017. - The population seems healthy from what I can tell. Not thriving but no substantial decline either from what I'm seeing. - I like the way the DLC is sort of turned into events for f2p players. - I like the Warp Menu a lot. - New marketplace additions. Really glad about this. Movement mode styles look great. I do wish there was a little more though. CONS: - The cash cap is still there. Given the current format of how DLCs are released (I hear it's 3-5 months), subscription just seems a little unfair if you're burnt out so I understand why people would rather just buy the DLC. However, not subscribing leaves you with a severe cash cap, which I haven't seen in other games. - PvP. I understand this isn't a priority and I have sort of given up on trying to enjoy PvP not only in this MMO but for basically all of them. I'll just rely on other console games (Injustice, Jump Force, etc) for that. This hit me hardest because the PvP used to be thriving in this game and at one point (like 2012-2015) I would log on solely to play PvP. - It would be nice if heroes and villains could communicate with each other without needing versus chat or some custom chat.
