Announcements and Important News / SCHEDULED RELEASE OF RI2
« on: September 08, 2021, 12:32:48 am »
Here is an overview of our future plans.

First is the scheduled release of issue 2 "Paths to Power".  Included in the update is more costume options, tanker and power adjustments, an economy rework and more. It it scheduled to release on September 12th.



With the release of Rebirth Issue 2, we will be removing developer's choice from the fire farm activities listed in AE.  This was a stop gap measure to help boost the economy. With upcoming changes to the overall method of acquiring enhancements and recipes we feel it is no longer necessary. Please understand that we are not removing these arcs and are merely removing the additional rewards on them.
WE ARE NOT BANNING FARMING OR TAKING ANY MOVE TO MAKE IT HARDER. You will still get XP.

Summer Blockbuster is currently planned to end on the 19th of September.

Announcements and Important News / PTS TRIALS SCHEDULED FOR 8/31/2021
« on: August 31, 2021, 12:11:49 am »
Incarnate Trials will be held on the PTS tomorrow (Tuesday 8/31/2021) at 9 EST, 8 CST, 6 PST.
This set of iTrials is an important test of our new reward drop changes. We will be asking everyone to track drops, including recipes received.

IMPORTANT: In order to claim any rewards for participation on your Live account, we NEED you to fill out a form.

You will be given links to the form at the start AND end of iTrials. You will need to fill out ONE form for each character that participates. (So if you switch characters between trials, we will need you to fill out an additional form.)

If you bring a new character with one of the new powersets to test at incarnate level (which we encourage), there a section of the form to indicate which of your characters on Live you would like your rewards to go to. Otherwise, your rewards will go to the Live version of the character you bring.

The rewards will be a 1:1 delivery of all Astral and Empyrean merits earned with an additional Empyrean merit for participating in each trial. For a total of 4 bonus merits. We will **not** be transferring badges. ~~Now is your time to swim in green stuff.~~

To claim the above rewards, you must fill out the form. Character information, a tally of recipes dropped, and optional sections for opinions.

We thank you all for your input and hope to put the data to good use.

Patch Notes / PTS (Test Server) Aug 26, 2021
« on: August 26, 2021, 11:22:34 pm »
INCARNATE
- Created Shard Recipes for Tier 1 Incarnate abilities of Destiny, Lore, Interface, Incarnate, and Hybrid
- Fixed issue in which being a Team Member during a Dark Astoria Arc would not grant progress on the weekly reward
     * This applies to Flashbacks as well
- Gabriel now rewards a Rare or Very Rare incarnate material in addition to Empyrean merits

POWERS
Martial Mastery
- Stalkers may now slot War Cry with Accuracy

DROP CHANCES
Adjusted Very Rare recipe drop changes as follows:
-Non-incarnate drop chances reduced from 3% to 2.5%.
-Loot Booster Non-incarnate drop chances reduced from 6% to 5%.
-Incarnate drop chances reduced from 6% to 5%
-Loot Booster Incarnate drop chances reduced from 12% to 10%

Reduced Team Inspiration drop chances.

BUGFIXES
-Corrected issue with Kinetic Assault unlock levels on Guardians



Asymmetric torso revamp for females:

This systems renovation brings full asymmetric integration to female hips and torsos
along with numerous new features and options.

All relevant chest and hip geometries have been modified to now accept asymmetric base
textures and tinting patterns. The intent is that asym chests and hips blend seamlessly
with the core costume library we have all come to know and love. No existing option already
available on Rebirth has been sacrificed.

For beta testing purposes, original symmetric categories have been left turned on temporarily
to allow QA testing to ensure that no existing options were forgotton. All new menu bonesets
have been appended with "Asym" to allow easy identification of new categories. This is true even
for new boneset categories without a corresponding legacy version, such as "Single Panel Tights"
and "Jodhpurs."

Later in the testing process, the legacy menus will be switched off and the "Asym" notation will
be removed. For testing purposes, the Valentines event unlockable toga category has been
temporarily unlocked. Before live release, this category will be returned to its conditional state
requiring Valentines event participation to unlock the boneset.

Currently, for testing purposes, most new pattern options are at the bottom of the library.
Before release to Rebirth Live, the patterns that pass our quality standards either as is or
revision, will be canonized. This means they will be folded into the larger alphabetic listing.
The Rebirth dev team reserves the option to hold back any patterns that do not meet our
quality standards at release time. Feedback for how to improve problematic patterns is
welcome during testing.

Patch details below are broken into listings to better help you orient yourself
to the new additions.

We've been getting a lot of anecdotal feedback on the level of rewards present on test. In order to help us collate this into useful data, we've put together a form to catalog your feedback. This will help us gain a clearer picture of the testing community's response to these changes.

The form is here: https://forms.gle/1BXgCTRhZT7DxDGcA
All who have already commented are encouraged to submit their input to the form.

Sometime within the next week or two, we will be assembling an incarnate trial test with rewards to your live accounts. Details to follow.

We thank you all again for your input and hope you will continue to provide it

Patch Notes / TEST SERVER (PTS) July 28th 2021
« on: July 30, 2021, 02:00:36 am »
July 28th, 2021 PTS Patch Notes:

During our Spring 2021 State of the Game announcement, we listened to community about the challenging game grind and economic scarcity of salvage and recipes.  We are working to address this in several ways.  A common theme of the Economy and Grind Overhaul is to reward players for engaging in multiple styles and areas of gameplay.  This focuses on better rewarding players within a particular area of gameplay based on the theme, purpose, or specialization in that area of the game.  Though not a complete list, a good amount of which is listed below.

Merit Vendors:
A sneak preview was released back in the first game update after Rebirth Issue 1 (Ri1e1) where we significantly discounted many of the items in various merit vendors.  For Rebirth Issue 2 we are standardizing this discount at a 40% reduction from sunset costs across all merit vendors.  In most cases, this means even greater merit cost reductions, though a few costs were increased.  Expect the following in general:

All recipe prices in all rarities have received a 40% discount from their sunset costs.
On Live, Three stat and Four stat enhancing recipes were often the most expensive.  Their prices have been standardized under the lowest costing recipe in their set and received the same 40% discount.
Special or Proc recipes are now the only recipe worth more in a given set as previewed during Ri1e1.  Their prices from Live are discounted and approach a 40% discount most of the time.
This lowered the price of PvP recipes in the Empyrean Merit vendor.
We added both Very Rare (Purple) Recipes and PvP Recipes to the Reward Merit and Astral Merit Vendors.
Influence costs for recipes and enhancements received up to a 40% discount across all merit vendors.
We removed all attuned enhancement purchase lockouts from vendors that prevented players from buy more than 1 item every few days.
-------------------------------------------------
Drop Tables:
Increased drop pool chances for Very Rare recipes rolls from 1% to 3%.  Loot Boosters double the percent chances.  NOTE: Chances of drops have not increased, just the odds of the roll being Very Rare within those drops.
While exemplaring, level 50 characters receive a chance for level 50 recipe rewards for defeating enemies.
Removed 20-hour lockout from Enhancement Catalysts drops.
Reduced Temp power recipe drops reduced 10x.  Note: Does not affect Amplifier drops.


Endgame Content and Endgame Character Build Synergy: While completing endgame content we want players to also progress on their endgame character builds.  Therefore we have included features that enable players to more easily accomplish these goals at the same time.


Astral and Empyrean Merit Vendors:
Very Rare recipes receive a 4x bonus cost reduction.
All recipe lockout timers have been removed.


Incarnate Trials and Incarnate Content (Dark Astoria):
Endgame content receives a 4x bonus drop pool chance for Very Rare recipes rolls.  Loot Boosters double the percent chances.  NOTE: Chances of drops have not increased, just the odds of the roll being Very Rare within those drops.
Reward Choices for completing Incarnate content now offers a choice for a random Purple Recipe instead of Super Inspirations when receiving a Very Rare reward.


Master of Task Forces:
Successfully completing any Master of Task Force will reward 1 random Very Rare recipe.
(Future feature to add in a follow up commit:) You can only obtain this reward once every 20 hours for a given "Master of" completion.  NOTE: If you fail the "Master of" requirements but complete the task force you must still wait 20 hours before a successful completion will reward a Very Rare recipe.


Hamidon (The Hive):
The reward choice for defeating Hamidon has been increased from 1 to 3 random Hamidon enhancements.
The 24-hour reward lockout has been reduced to 30 minutes.
-------------------------------------------------------------------


Seed of Hamidon (First Ward Zone Event):
Defeating Seed of Hamidon rewards 1 random Hamidon enhancements.


PvP:
Added Gladiator Merits to PvPing.  Note: Gladiator Merits are not attached to a vendor yet.
Defeating a Player with Rep rewards 5 Gladiator Merits.
Defeating a player without rep has a chance to reward 1 Gladiator Merit.
In addition to defeating players, Gladiator Merits are now obtainable for completing the following PvP zone events:
-Bloody Bay:  Shivan Pet Reward - 7 Gladiator Merits
-Warburg:  Code Event Reward - 15 Gladiator Merits
-RV:  Hero/Villain Reach 1k Mech Pet Reward - 50 Gladiator Merits
Removed the PvP recipe lockout for defeating a player with rep.  Note: You cannot earn Rep from defeating the same player with 5-minutes.  This is how rep works.
PvP recipes received a 4x drop chance bonus for defaulting a player with Rep.
Loot Boosters double the chances that a PvP recipe could drop.

Inspirations:
Super Inspirations have a very small chance to drop from Elite Bosses and Archvillains in Incarnate Content.
Dual Inspirations have a very small chance to drop from PvPing.
Team Inspirations have a chance to drop while Teaming.  The size and chance of these drops follow the game's natural progression/reward system.
Dual, Super, and Team Inspirations are now tradable.
Dual, Super, and Team Inspirations now last 60 seconds like all other Inspirations.
Added HotKey "C" to the Inspiration combine menu.


Attuned Enhancements:
Made all attuned enhancements tradable.  Previously only ATOs and Winter IOs were tradable.
Added icons to Winter IOs
Super Packs:
We've reworked Super Pack rewards a bit to serve better rewards and require less in-combat "email" management.
Very Rare Cards now have a chance to reward a Very Rare Attuned Enhancement.  This replaced the odds of a Very Rare rewarding another ATO.
ATOs have a much higher chance of rewarding in Rare cards.
Added BrainStorm Ideas cards.  They come in three varieties: common (20x), uncommon (40x), and rare (60x).
Inspirations Cards have been removed in favor of the new in-game inspiration drops.
Other reward cards (not listed above) that overlapped in rarity from common to very rare have been reworked in lower tiers to make room for the Rare/Very Rare odds improvement.  They should now appear in the common and uncommon card tiers in a more desirable pattern while appearing less to never in rare and very rare.  Noteworthy exclusions to this are Reward Merits, Experienced, XP Booster, and Catalysts.  These cards can appear in any rarity and were excluded from the change.
Added icons to the Winter Super Pack.


Architect Entertainment:
Increased AE Ticket cap from 9999 to 99999.


Conversion Sets:
Added conversion sets for Very Rare Attuned Enhancements.
Added conversion sets for Universal Damage Enhancements.


Bug Fixes:
Winter Super Pack Candy Canes now reward the correct amount. (5 per claim instead of 1)
Fixed a bug that caused some Elite Bosses recipe drops to have an 8% drop chance instead of 12%.


For some more transparency with the ATO cost changes.

Coming Soon

PvP:
Gladiator Vendors will be added to PvP Zones and to Arenas

Alignment System/Alignment Merits:
For earning alignment-specific merits we want players be reward with unique power ups that virtually no other area of the game currently offers.  Here's what’s in store for them.

Hero & Villain Super Packs and Vigilante & Rogue Super Packs will be purchasable with Alignment Merits.
We're adding Vigilante and Rogue Alignment Merits and swapping those in places where they earned Reward Merits instead.  This goes for Hero and Villains too, where Reward Merits were initially given instead of their own alignment merits.
Hero and Villain Super Packs will cost 6 Hero/Villain Merits or 10 Rogue/Vigilante Merits.
Vigilante & Rogue Super Packs will cost 6 Vigilante/Rogue Merits or 10 Hero/Villain Merits.
Reduce the number of Alignment Tip missions to receive a Morality Tip mission from 10 to 5.
Remove any and all Alignment/Morality Tip lockout timers.
Note: These changes will allow much faster side-switching for players to join their friends or experience other content.  Consequently, we're returning the alignment vendor costs to their previous values, as we're halving the number of missions to earn these merits.

Announcements and Important News / WST Speed Leaderboards
« on: April 03, 2021, 10:32:26 pm »
Hello runners! Are you ready to put your best feet forward, really fast? Were bringing back speed runs with the WST Speed Run Leaderboard!
Each month when we write the WST we will pick three targets: One Hero or TFC, one Villain, and one Co-op target and make these the Speed Targets.

At the start of the schedule, anyone who completes a run and takes a screenshot of the in game time and the Contact (click missions, click on the task, click More) is able to have it compared to the leaderboard. Record setters get 4000 architect tickets. Record breakers get 2000 tickets.

They do not need to be done on the week they are WST. They can be done outside of that week!

The Leaderboard will clear out every month. We are still keeping Overall Server Records. They are separate and can be broken out of season. Breaking an Overall Server Record nets your team 5 super packs or 2 paragon reward tokens regardless of if it is in season or not. Your Team Leader will choose one and the entire team will receive that.
Overall server records are being brought forward from our archive and are posted on our wiki at: https://wiki.cityofheroesrebirth.com/w/index.php/Speedruns

A few weeks ago we have stumbled upon a lead for the random map server crashing in the incarnate trials being held. Upon using a Costume Change in the trial, the entire map server crashed. This seemed to have worked consistently as it happened again on the following attempt. Attempts to reproduce the effect outside of populated trials had no results.

Thus we are calling an APB.
If you use a CC emote and the mapserver crashes following it, please report it here as soon as possible. We may ask for details (what does the costume change mainly) as we attempt to investigate this issue.

Thus far we have only had one other report of this occurrence so we cannot say for certain if this is the cause.

This has been the only cause to reproduce the effect however. More causes may yet still exist out there. As this is our only lead, it is getting attention. If you suspect any other specific action caused a map server crash, please do report it as well.

Thank you
