Got to spend a couple hours in game yesterday, the current server is named 'Torchbearer', and isn't _quite_ as elegant as Bree under the incredible load of thousands of newbies, but it's playable - when it stays up. Stability isn't quite as good, I'm afraid.

Threw down a Rad/Rad _Tanker_ and started gnawing with Tish. I'm liking the Rad Melee powerset, going to have to throw some slots and DOs at it and see how it do.

If all goes well, I'll have a few more hours tonight and I'm going to rebuild The Legendary, if for no other reason than to have a clearinghouse of not stupid people Big Grin

I would like to assure you that those numbers are incorrect. There is but one tank, and until Terrence gets back, all the aggro is MINE.

That does not surprise me, as changing base design, with how much work so many had put into it, was indeed fraught with Peril Dakota.

So torn. Want to be part of putting the band back together, but so not wanting to be the super squishy blapper that a blapper is early on.

I missed that Spud had the code in hand, that's great news!

So, I dunno if this is helpful to anyone, but if you haven't been keeping track of the server news...

Currently the general public has access to the i24 beta source code (the last official Paragon Studios code), and the compiled binaries for i25 (Leandro's private server). The general public does not have the i25 source code, however.

This means that anyone can immediately download and spin up i25 and get it working locally, though people are still figuring out all the ins and outs of the full server setup - getting it fully deployed is still a bit of a challenge.

The currently operational public-private server project, Homecoming/Torchbearer, is an i25 server.

At the same time, people are hoping to get an i24-based server operational, for various reasons. Some are political (i25 is SCORE-associated and has all those balance changes), but many are simply practical (people are working with the i24 source code, after all). The hypothetical server run by the largest City of Heroes discord will likely be i24-based, at this stage.

Spud has been looking at i24 code own his own time, but is not part of any larger coding project.

i25 servers open to large numbers of people will be clunky and expensive as they're running 2012-style, wide rather than tall implementation, needing lots of hardware. The hope is i24 servers will be more streamlined and less costly or resource intensive.

For what its worth I'm following this thread and the news of the server quite closely buuuut i'm currently in 'wait and see' mode to see how things shake out over the next while, I'd really rather not get my hopes up and get a client installed and start playing only for -stuff- to happen and it all comes crashin down y'know? However I'm thrilled to hear bout y'all out there Huntin and Killin skulls.

once they're modernized. i24 as it sits is also wide.

I've an Intel NUC HVK with 32gb and a 1tb nvme sitting here going to seed I might set up for testing..

You're hardly the only one. I'm of the same opinion, since the Homecoming/Torchbearer folks keep saying it's not guaranteed as a permanent server or a permanent solution. I don't want to powerlevel or get too invested in a build, try to make an SG base, or anything like that. I might use it to test out some powersets or dig out some old costumes, but that'll just be noodling around rather than anything serious.

Well, and there's the fact either the server itself or account management or something has been down literally every time I've had a free moment at my gaming PC. If we had definite word of a stable long-term solution, I'd damn well take a couple days off work, but as it currently stands...

Oh shit, there goes the planet.

On a more serious note, I am going to watch for now as I never played back in the day, but when I get a system that can run it, I will probably join as well

When they say that I have to smile- best laid plans of mice and men you know.  Tongue 

Expect servers to do more up, down than an army recruit in basic training.  A.) Weekend B.) Double XP C.) Over 4k on 1.5k servers

I'm rolling with it as it goes up and faceplants- I missed the game so much even a Mapserve I find endearing. That falling through the floor glitch last night was pretty epic though.  Smile

EDIT: Apparently that missing floor thing was part of a patch for streamline and stability issues that didn't quite go as planned. We've got about an hour yet before the server Gods rebuild the mapserver... yeah, rebuild. RE Build, catastrophic patch methinks.
But GM Jimmy said we can continue to make jokes at their expense!
Potentially stupid warning here but: If one server is up but the other is down don't even bother trying to get on it, they run parallel and if one is failing the other is not far behind.

I googled first and most of the sites are offline or not found at this point.

Anyone remember what the keybind Macro (its been so long) is to target Quantum gunners first?  I hate the idea of loosing a teammate (pug or otherwise) because most don't remember how awful Q's can be for a WS/PB player.

UPDATE:  Took some digging so here... take it /bind TAB "targetenemynext$$ targetcustomnext enemy quantum$$ targetcustomnext enemy void$$ targetcustomnext enemy cyst$$ targetcustomnext enemy alive$$ targetcustomprev enemy alive"

They are standing up two more servers. Holy shit that is going to be expensive unless they are some sort of Tall test.

And have enabled 3 days of double XP to draw people off the other servers!  Big Grin

EDIT: Growing pains though, they're knocking everything else down as they adjust to the code, mapserver and player hugs.
