Status Report for Ship of Heroes

Things are looking good on the Ship of heroes development front. Here's a post by Consultant on the official forum:

Some of these top things are in the game already:

1. We have done, and will continue to do, everything we can to enable people to play, even if they have older or graphically weaker computers. You may not be playing on Ultra settings (we can only do so much from our end), but we've done a lot in this regard.

2. You can solo most content, and do not need to team in order to advance. In fact, there are a lot of features designed to make solo play fun. We all solo, don't we?

3. Keeping up as a casual player. You should be able to play at your own pace. Since we are committed to positive community, you should be welcomed on any team, even if you are new or inexperienced. And you should be able to form a freindly team of your own, even without a guild or buddies, and do most anything.

4. The powers are different. Every class, every powerset has plusses and minuses. You need to think in advance and overcome the weaknessses your character has, and to make some lemonade out of lemons, at least part of the time. and DPS is just one factor; sometimes not the most important factor in combat success.

5. We do not have sidekicking built yet. But we do plan to have it included in the game.

6. We've shown about a dozen emotes already. More are coming.

7. We plan to top the COH character creator. We will see if that is possible, but we feel good about it, right now.

8. Our augments system provides customization above anything we've seen up to this point in another MMORPG.
