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 also 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.

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

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.

lol@I am

when I look at this game I see

Marvel meets Diablo meets LoL

free to get, free to play, MMO, 26+ heroes which each play like their own class, with MANY skins for each hero

i don't know how you can have a Marvel game without it being somewhat rehashed character wise from other games

I think they were smart not to try to match DCUO... this way the games truly are VERY different and not competing with one another

while blizzard may lack REAL innovation, their graduates are showing us innovation:

Guild Wars 2 (ex blizzard)(Mike O'Brien - director Warcraft 3, Diablo, Starcraft)
Firefall (ex blizzard)(Mark E. Kern - Team lead World of Warcraft 2004)
Marvel Heroes (ex blizzard)(David Brevik - godfather of diablo, co-founder blizzard north)

too bad blizzard can't retain their talent it seems

the game will start with 26 playable heroes

to be expanded and expanded with heroes as it goes... like champions in LoL

the marvel universe has over 8000 characters

they have plenty to choose from

Man. So it'll probably be like $20 for each new hero? I've been a Marvel fan for majority of my life. I want to own them all! That'll get expensive.

So I'm trying to conceptualize this... so this is going to be a MMO with hundreds of other wolverines, hulks, etc. running around the Marvel Universe world? Not sure I dig this.

think of them basically as classes

26 heroes at launch = 26 classes

what distinguishes one guy of the class from another?

skins, gear, and talents

20 wolverines can each be very different

no differnt than 1000 warriors in d3

Well, if I understood some reading right equipment does not impact the players appearance. You can change uniforms though, just not sure about all the options. The initial pack purchase seems to get you alternate uniform options, but wondering how customizable this will eventually get. Seeing as how players are not able to change a character build, size, and other features I'm hoping the uniforms are highly customizable. I'm sure they will be, just doesn't seem to be much info atm.

Your appearance will only change from skins. Skins are complete uniform different visual for your toon. Similar to league of legends.

Gear does not change appearance.

Skill trees for each hero will be complex and varied.

Even if you have the same skin as another wolverine, your wolverine will be very different, and play different, based on your talents points. And have different usable skills.

Some skills available to your hero are based on your gear.

For example... Rhino boss will drop gear that gives you new abilities.

A wolverine who has the Rhino gear will be able to do things other wolverines can not

Do I wish it was in the Diablo Universe instead of the Marvel Universe? YES

Are there problems that a beta will have? YES... but they will be fixed

I can't even ask you what you didn't like about it
