Do any of you play this superhero mmorpg?

I tried it recently (played it together with Arbeus) since it is "free to play" now, it's certainly very different from what I'm used to. Mobs respawn extremely fast, something I'm not a big fan of. :/

As a free player I only have 2 character slots, I'm thinking of maybe rerolling my melee tank type, I enjoyed my second character more, a healer/caster combo. :)

I just installed CoH a few days ago to see if my old char was there.


it wasn't :(
I was entertained by it for a couple of weeks, though.

I really like the character creation. Both the mechanics, where you choose an archetype (class) and then a primary and a secondary power set (skill tree (which isn't really a tree)), and the appearance, where you can spend hours perfecting your outfit. Makes for a lot of diversity.

The respawn of some mobs is like an overcompensated opposite of EQ2 where you sometimes had to wait a long time for stuff to respawn.

I like the game so far, but I haven't even hit level 10, so my verdict may change :D

I like the character creation too! Not too sure about the game itself yet, but that could just be me being too slow and set in my ways..

Oooh, and you can choose to be able to fly! Or run super fast! Or superjump! Or teleport! Or all of them (which, granted, will gimp you, but you can!)! How cool is that?!

And yes, I just double posted instead of editing! Take that, villains!

(Pre-emptive edit: Too slow!)
