If there’s ever a place to talk about super hero themed MMOs, the San Diego Comic-Con would be it. The biggest and brightest of all the “comic book” shows, Comic-Con mixes the geek with the strange with the celebrity, blends it together, and shoots out pure awesome. It was at this star-studded event that Ten Ton Hammer sat down with City of Heroes developers Matt Miller and Joe Morrissey to talk about Issue 16: Power Spectrum and their upcoming expansion, City of Heroes: Going Rogue.
Ten Ton Hammer: Is the Mission Architect still popular among the players?
Joe: I think so. Right now there are over 50,000 arcs up on our server. It has definitely leveled off since the beginning, because at some point everyone has made their quota of arcs, since there are only three slots per account. Everyone's pretty much filled up their slots. We've also opened up the microtransaction portion of this as well, since players can now go in and purchase up to five slots in the architect system for a total of eight.
