Marvel Heroes “Biggest Update Ever” trailer

http://forums.marvelheroes.com/discussion/comment/4019516#Comment_4019516

  • Tons of changes coming to the game
  • Talent system change
    • No more power points – powers will be fully viable on unlock
    • Removing specializations, introducing talents
      • Each hero will have 5 sets of talents
      • Talents will unlock as you level your Hero, offering choices over time as you learn the nuances of your abilities.
      • They can range from passive bonuses, to mechanic changes, to completely removing a Power from your Power tree and replacing it with a new one.
      • These Talents occupy the Hero’s third Power tree, with all Active skills being migrated to the first two trees.

 

Nostalrius wants to divorce Elysium

http://massivelyop.com/2017/01/14/nostalrius-has-decided-handing-its-wow-emu-code-to-elysium-wasnt-such-a-good-idea-after-all/

  • Appears to be a philosophical problem – Nostalrius team doesn’t like their system being a “pirate” server instead of a “fan” server.
  • Elysium is going to replace Nostalrius servers with “equal or better”.  Nostalrius data will be purged.
