So can we make our own heroes? Confused. Looks interesting.

from my understanding you purchase Heroes the same way you purchase champions in league of legends

you have to level each hero independantly

all of the heroes are from the marvel universe, you are not generating them... there are 26 to collect

you can switch between heroes you own at any time as long as you are out of combat

if your hulk is level 10 and your wolverine is level 20, for example, it would be dangerous to use hulk if you are in a level 20 zone

not sure on all the details

Interesting that they'd go with the Diablo style game instead of standard MMO stuff. I was thinking they'd get ignored since DC Universe has the standard superhero MMO covered. Now I'm thinking I may have to play around with this.

This game is going to be everything Diablo 3 was supposed to be.

Free to get, free to play
A true MMO
Diablo style in superhero universe instead of fantasy rpg universe

Diablo 3 should of been this game... how did blizzard fuck it up so bad I don't get it

Diablo 3 WAS NOT INNOVATIVE

Starcraft 2 WAS NOT INNOVATIVE

fucking fail Blizzard

Signed up for Closed Beta...

had to fill out a survey on why I'm worthy of being a beta tester LOL

my main logic was "because Diablo 3 sucked"

When they sold out to Activision, they can no longer control creative direction or "not releasing a game until it's completely tested". I used to respect Blizzard enormously for their insistence on quality, but now with a public company pressing for results, that ain't gonna happen anymore.

Lets play a game!? Create your hero!

Apple-Fanboy - He would be intelligently-unintelligent. Everytime he upgrades his skills newer skills would be added to be needed. At the very least he would be easy to operate and have awesome displays.

Also, the micro transaction cost will be twice the amount compared to all the other non-Apple-Fanboy characters for the same exact content.

Plus, to upgrade your character, you'll be required to stay logged on and camp out at the in-game store days in advance.

Well Played.

I present my next toon: Blizzard Fan-Boy
- Has aged graphics and cartoony style but its ok because he can run on any machine.
- He doesn't upgrade because he is still the best thing out there so he says.
- He still has more subs then all f2play games combined therefore he is still the greatest.

Sorta looks like DC universe, which is also F2P and available on PS3 [not sure about Wii or Xbox 306].

I've played DC Universe for PC. Not PS3.

Besides the Heroes focused portion, Marvel Heroes is VERY different than DC Universe.

DC is more like WoW.
Marvel is more like Diablo.

DC you make a hero/villain who takes orders from Batman, Superman, Joker etc...

Marvel you actually play the hero. Don't think you can play villains.

they were very smart to go with diablo style IMO for this game, this way there is no direct competition with DCUO

But at least I won't have to stop every 10 min to teach my wife how to play or fix the errors. It will also work with all expansions without knowing a programming language.

Was looking at founders packs for this game last night.

All of them are $19.99 and give:

- 1 elite hero of your choice (these heroes F2P players dont get unless they work for them)
- in game currency for micro transaction store
- 3 day head start when game is released
- other stuff I forget
- does NOT include access to betas

ALL of you heroes start at level 1.

You can switch between all of your heroes while out of combat.

Each hero can be customized with DOZENS of skins. There are literally 100s of skins in the game for the current 26 heroes.

The game will add new heroes as it ages.

it's like LoL meets Diablo, very cool

No one pre-orders. They wonder why?

from what I've read this game is SWAMPED with beta apps

the demand is so high that they don't haev to give anyone betas access with early purchase

I think this game is going to be a hit

running dungeons with group will be awesome... start off with hulk... and then when you get to the boss you can switch to a support hero to help your group

THE LOOT DROPPED IS SPECIFIC TO YOUR ACTIVE HERO, and all loot is instanced to you

you can grind dungeons with your geared toon, swap to an alt toon at boss and get gear from the boss for your alt

Looks almost identical to Marvel Ultimate Alliance on the consoles. Even the the level in that video looks like a rip off.

Marvel Ultimate alliance 2006

But didn't that sort of copy the isometric play style of Diablo?

Diablo -> MUA -> Marvel Heroes

copying here is like the pot calling the kettle black

and I dont think MUA was ever an MMO or will touch the scale of this game

And didn't they all copy Gauntlet?

That's not my point. I am saying those 2 games are literally the same. Just what, more depth in Marvel Heroes? Marvel Ultimate Alliance was just, eh. Got boring pretty quick for me.
