Question Should I Come back next month or wait?

I ran out of my 30 days free awhile back, and I was thinking about getting my subscription renewed next month.

But if there is truth to the hard-light power rumors, should I wait until then?

I'm still waiting for hard light powers before I even buy the game. lol Anyway if you play on ps3 I would say wait till they get their network problems fixed completely. Why waste the time when you can't actually play? If you play on the computer then I will say go with what you think is best. lol

Then it is completely up to you man. If it entertains you and you believe it is worth the money then you might as well go ahead and play till the new powers come out.

I quit last month and haven't looked back. The game is really fun, they just needed to flesh it out with more content before launching it

I'm staying with it, or I would be if PSN wasn't still down. I'd like to get all caught up with my gear and I'm enjoying the experience so far. The 2nd update was leagues better than the first, so I'm looking forward to how much better it gets.
That all said, it has gotten very repetitive and monotonous to do the same missions over and over, just to farm for styles or to search around the same 3 blocks for three straight days for collection pieces.

The Netflix has actually been working nonstop for me since the shutdown. I don't know if anyone else is using that.

I, Booster Gold, would venture a guess that both Green Lantern and Sinestro Corps rings wil turn up eventually as level 30 trinkets which will allow the powers to be toggled on and off, change your outfit upon use (like the Manhunter trinket), and give you a new set of abilities that will be varied based upon your stance, likely with a base 4 constructs for all and then 8 others equalling 2 exclusive for each stance which would operate appropriately (heals for healers, pulls for tanks, AOEs for trolls, and heavy hits for DPS). I've asked Skeets, but he won't tell me, claiming that he has no record of the existance of DC Universe Online at all, and therefore cannot give me any information on it that has not yet been released here in this century... which we altered apparently.

That would be wonderful. But no way.

I hope the hard light stuff come with the expansion pack. That might make me give my 15 a month to them instead of Blizzard.

I doubt it'll be anything complex. If it's just a trinket, then it's probably going to drop an anvil or one of the other hardlight attacks the lanterns possess in the game. I'd much rather have an entire lantern class, and I'm good with waiting for the expansion to get it. (Real expansion, not a content update.)

It's the difference between getting it done right and just giving you something to pacify yourself.

I, Booster Gold, can garauntee there won't be a Lantern "class." Why? Because the classes in DC Universe ONline are not set up that way. We're not rangers, knights, or clerics. We are quite basically tanks, healers, or controllers, and we can all be DPS if we want. There are no other possibilites for classes. Now if you mean skill sets, well, that would require making a new character since we've already chosen Fire, Ice, Gadgets, Mental, Sorcery, or Nature, but no one will want to abandon their character which they have put so many hours into to create a Lantern character to begin from scratch. Everyone will want their already made characters to become one. Thus the trinket idea is the only really viable one. Perhaps the trinket will be dedicated DPS, not alllowing for stance cycling, but give nthat they already have a Manhunter trinket (Which admittedly does nothing but make you look like a Manhunter until you turn it off), I'm willing to bet Skeets here that this is how its done.

~Excuse me, sir, do you think thats wise?~
Of course, I'm that confident in this. Beides, they'd have to have their own Skeets to
put up in return for the bet, so its not like they can actually take me up on it.
~I see, sir. Well done.~

sounds like some of the typical gripes ppl have w/mmos nowadays: going hardcore on it leaves U feeling like ya did *everything*, and so U end of leaving it alone until a content pack of some type is offered.

(what is up with this thing not letting you reply sometimes....)

First of all, skill set and class are the same thing. Paladin, Cleric, Hunter are just pretty names for tanks, healers and DPS. By class, obviously I'm referring to Tank, Healer, Controller, DPS. Yeah, everyone can DPS, but unless you're speced as pure DPS, you're better off sticking to your role.

Second of all, they are introducing a few new skill sets over the next couple of content updates. Lightning, for example, is supposed to be one of the next ones released.

As for a DPS trinket....I have a hard time believing that anyone who plays a role wants a DPS trinket that's pretty much hampered by playing your role. First of all, you'd limit the hardlight powers to just doing one offensive action and maybe providing some stat and appearance changes. Why on earth would anyone want a cheap trinket experience when they can have a full blown class experience? Really are we so desperate for a ring in this game that we'd settled for a watered down green/yellow ring?

It's not unheard of for an MMO to introduce a new player class in the middle of a game. I remember starting a death knight in WoW, even at level 80 I wasn't bothered with starting a Death Knight since they started Death Knights at level 55 for exactly the reason you're stating. That's one route for all the whiners who think starting an alt in DCUO is overwhelming. Although, honestly, after two months a damn near full set of T2 gear, a full set of T1, all the collections/briefings/ and investigations and hefty portion of the feats done....there just isn't enough content in this game to keep me playing much longer....except I'm moving on to alts and so are a hefty portion of the people who've been playing since day one.

For prospective, it takes less then three days to level 30 a character out (maybe a week or two, if you don't play but a couple hours a day.) And less then two months to fully Tier your character out....that's hardly an overwhelming task.

From the prospective of other MMOs I've played, it's not unheard of.

Is a power ring not just a trinket that gives its bearer powers unlike what they already have?
How could a new seperate skill set be even remotely more logical than a trinket you can turn on and off?

~Thats telling him, sir.~
Thank you, Skeets.

I think with the story setting currently, the Green lantern stuff doesn't really work. I mean you're playing a hero granted powers by nanobites rather than given a power ring. I mean sure in the comic about the game both sides (Yellow and Green) in the future get wiped out and Luthor takes all the yellow rings for himself to combat Brainiac while Brainiac seems to have nabbed all the green rings for himself. (Apart from Hal obvious who gets pwned by Black Adam) But I think it's highly unlikely they'll appear in game though who knows stranger things have happened.

I have the 3 month savings plan, but haven't played it in over two months! The game grew boring to me just like City of Heroes and Champions did. NOW if the rumors of hard light powers DO come into play, then I will be back!
