Marvel Heroes 2015 1.15 Patch Notes

ROGUE

The southern belle X-Man herself, Rogue has joined the cast of Marvel Heroes 2015! One of our most frequently requested heroes, Rogue boasts the most diverse powerset in all of Marvel Heroes history.

Able to steal powers from friend and foe alike, players can build Rogue as they see fit with access to over 90 stealable powers (which will increase with each Hero, Supervillain, and Team-Up Hero released!) in addition to her iconic super strength and flight powers that she had stolen from Ms. Marvel.

For her Signature and Ultimate abilities, Rogue recalls multiple stolen powers at once from iconic mutants - with her Signature resulting in a deadly, screen-wide blast and her Ultimate transforming her physical form into an amalgamation of other mutants!

ODIN'S BOUNTY EVENT

Odin’s Bounty has returned and with it, a game mode rotation (with a new twist)!

In order to give player’s choice over when and where they want their lootsplosions and avoid slowdowns, buffed game modes will drop new Chests of Odin’s Bounty!

These chests contain numerous pieces of gear, XP, a chance at Odin Marks and even a very small chance at the Mysterious Crimson Box containing boss-specific artifacts.

These Chests of Odin’s Bounty have a short 5 cooldown to prevent players from using too many boxes and causing performance issues.

An additional very rare "jackpot" loot bonus can trigger during the Odin's Bounty event. This loot bonus is know as "Odin's Gift" and can contain a large pile of loot. As a bonus, the Odin's Bounty boost will provide an additional chance of receiving this Odin's Gift in addition to the Odin Mark benefits.

Schedule here with multiple time zones:

http://forums.marvelheroes.com/discussion/131532/odins-bounty-schedule-s#latest

In addition, a daily mission has been added for the event: Deliver Odin’s Wrath!

Serve as Odin’s champion and deliver Odin’s own wrath to the enemies of Asgard for a special reward! Head to Lady Sif in Avengers Tower (located near the waypoint) to receive this mission. This mission can be completed once per day during the course of the event and will return for each subsequent Odin’s Bounty.

CYBERNETICS SYSTEM

Cybernetics is a new system for Marvel Heroes that gives you something to do with all the loot that you earn in the world, but isn't an specifically upgrade for your hero and would otherwise just stay on the ground and provide no benefit.
With the Cybernetics feature you can turn those items that would otherwise be worth nothing into Cybernetic Upgrades for your cosmetic pets or into a bit of cash for yourself.

We expect to iterate and expand on this system in the coming months, with various options for players to select and personalize their Cybernetic Vacuum experience. This feature is very much a game changer for an ARPG like Marvel Heroes and we're all pretty excited to launch it and keep working to improve it.

For a detailed FAQ, click here.

Note for next week: We have a slight radius increase the width of the Cybernetics Vacuum and we’ve removed the confirmation box when donating Cosmic Items

NEW CURRENCY UI TAB

By popular demand, we have added a new UI element (found on your character sheet) known as the Currency Tab a few weeks earlier than we initially expected.

We have converted our first batch of currency types so that you’ll be able easily view them on one page, in addition to them no longer taking an inventory slot.

We'll be adding additional currency types in the coming weeks to the currency tab to cover as much as possible.

JEAN GREY - LEVEL 52 DESIGN REVIEW

Jean Grey has received her 52 Design Review! With stunning new visuals and powers that offer unique mechanics depending on which form she is in, players are free to play Jean Grey as they see fit: as the powerful X-Man in control, or the raging Phoenix!

For more details, please see @TheArtofRawr’s in-depth write up here.

SHE-HULK TEAM-UP HERO

Jennifer Walters, otherwise known as She-Hulk is now available as a Team-Up Hero! With her brawling abilities and briefcase of legal documents (for real), She-Hulk is a force to be reckoned with both in the courtroom and the battlefield.

We’re aware this didn’t have enough legal jokes.

EMMA FROST

Emma Frost’s Diamond Form is now visible in all costumes!

Emma Frost’s Marvel NOW! costume’s coat is now animated with her run.

SILVER SURFER

Silver Surfer's Electromagnetic Flux shipped with greatly mistuned damage and has been changed to follow the same relative balance formula as other powers in the game.

We apologize for letting this slip through the cracks in initial Surfer testing last month. Several players did report it before launch but due to the unusual nature of the power and lack of strong precedent in tuning tags, it did not get the attention it deserved. That has been corrected for future powers of a similar nature.

The changes are:
  • Base Damage per hit has increase very slightly.

  • Damage ‘ramp up’ is 50% each phase instead of 75%

  • Power Cosmic cost halved from 250/s to 125/s

  • Power Cosmic cost increases +25% each ramp up, so +50% total at max channel

  • Natural Power Cosmic regeneration is paused while channeling

Additionally, a bug was fixed in which the “micro-beams” were sometimes able to hit the main target. These beams are intended to “swat the flies” away rather than dealing additional damage to a boss or other lone target.

THE POWER COSMIC - LEGENDARY ITEM

The Power Cosmic Legendary Item has been changed so that users can now gain 1500 damage rating to each damage type instead of allowing a three-damage type hero to gain 3000 total.

Heroes will still receive multiple stacks of +1 to all attributes, one for each damage type that they hit with (up to +3).

Only the raw damage affixes were affected (levels 2-4) to prevent a large disparity with Rogue, who can easily rotate 3 damage types. No other heroes are affected in any way by this change.

COSMIC PRESTIGE & DOOP RUNE

Due to unfortunately being omitted last week, Cosmic Prestige XP has been doubled this week and a Gifted Doop Rune will be granted as a free login gift for five days in a row, starting with this patch.

QUEENS ZONE CHANGES

The Queens Intro Zone has been changed to be a single player, more easily navigated instance to prevent new players from becoming lost or confused.

This is one of the many small upgrades we're making to the new player experience to keep things simple and understandable.

We have a high volume of new players to Marvel Heroes - if you would like to suggest adjustments to early parts of the game, please see the thread in the Developer Feedback section of the forums. We've already received solid feedback that has resulted in some planned improvements.

Reviews

“Marvel Heroes 2015 is set to expand on everything that made the game successful, while trimming much of the fat in terms of improvements over the core model.”

– Hardcore Gamer

“Comparisons to the Diablo series aren’t lip-service; Marvel Heroes plays exactly like a gamma-irradiated puree of Diablo II and Marvel Ultimate Alliance. Real-time mouseclicking combat? Check. Tons of loot? You bet! Crafting? Absolutely. Randomly generated levels and loot drops? Stop it, my nipples are getting hard. Speaking as a fan of both franchises (as well as the Marvel universe in general), my time in the closed beta was nothing short of nerdvana.”

- PC Gamer, May 2013

“Marvel Heroes combines the best of the MMO genre with the best of the Action RPG genre”

Curse

“Marvel Heroes is a beautiful game, and an incredibly fun one at that. It also offers a distinct change of pace for gamers who may dig certain aspects of Diablo III, but are looking for a richer overall setting to while away the hours.”

I will start by repeating the title of the game, Marvel heroes, which is the way to go to start off. I have a over a 1000 hours in this game currently, about 3 hours a day. I try not to miss a day, due to the fact, I have been trying to mod games to something close to this for years. This is the game I waitied essentially my whole gaming life. It combines the Marvel Universe that I grew up with and have injected into alot of the entertainments of life, (most Marvel fans get this). Then the games adds elements of more famous ARPG's to entice the skilled players from that genre into the game. But it has something for everyone, it's basic premise of gameplay is easy to learn for anyone and the skill and power trees, you create make it feel like you control the powers and overall destination of your hero's final feel. Combine this with an incredible, community, developers that listen to your input on the game at the Official Marvel Heroes Forums. The game is ever changing, like the next comic book issue some wait for, the anticipation is even more fun, because you actually play your favorite Marvel Heroes. The game is fun, free and ever-changing and if you are a true believer and your PC will run it, Then I have to say... Well, what are you waiting for hero?

I highly reccomend this game. The computer I have isn't great. Just a Toshiba laptop. It runs ok. Nothing special. If you like Marvel, you need this game. I play the game mostly because I am a Marvel fan. It has almost any hero you can think up, and even some villians. The characters can get a little pricy at times, but they can all be bought with in-game money.

so, marvel heroes. What to say? possibly the best game based in the marvel universe made. most of the characters you've heard of are here albeit some you have to unlock with eternity splinters but other than that a hell of a lot of fun. pick your character and go make a name for yourself be it Captain America, Loki or even the new addition the juggernaut, great growth patterns for each character with their own individual skills and abilities. I couldn't rate it higher if I wanted to.
10/10 in my opinion

Not quite as polished as Diablo 3, but it brings a hectic, arcade environment that is hugely entertaining. Heroes all play significantly differently, and there is a huge amount of replay value as well as regular content updates. After playing through normal mode, I had no problem picking up some in game purchases to support the game. Try it!

Similar to: Diablo 2 and 3, Torchlight 1 and 2, Titan Quest, Sacred

Feels like: X-men Legends, Marvel Ultimate Alliance

How free to play is it?: 1 free hero from a limited list, all heroes can be purchased with in game currency if you're willing to grind. The only thing that is impossible to get for free is S.T.A.S.H. which is bank space. You'll want some, trust me.

Pros: A ton of heroes for the fans, with more being added every month or two. Weekly events to boost leveling, access special loot, and sometimes even gear out a hero in a day. A good story mode the first time you go through it, raiding for organized groups, a few modes for random groups, and lots of solo content. The developers seem to be huge fans and always want to add more.

Cons: Bugs, every fix seems to break something else. The game seems to have issues with certain hardware configurations regardless of how powerful the system is.

Final thoughts: If you're a fan of Marvel, or Diablo style games you'll probably love this one. Totally free to try, so why not see what you think and how well it plays on your system.

Has it's flaws, but for the most part it's an enjoyable game. It's f2p so I have no real right to complain, however I have spent real money in game for buffs and characters - mainly due to impatience (character unlocks via eternity splinter drops, around 1 per 8 minutes). If you are a Marvel fan and enjoy ARPGMMO games, this one will most likely be enjoyable.

Fun game overall but you're going to need to play a lot if you want to try out different champions without spending money. And you'll most likely need to spend money to buy stash (items storage slots), the only thing that is not available for free besides costumes (unless you're lucky).
Good graphics but quite bad optimization for low-spec computers.

If you like the Marvel universe, go for it, every character is different from each other and they are quite respectful of the ones from the comics.

This one easily ♥♥♥♥♥slaps Diablo 3 with sheer amount of content which is still developing, like, constantly. Of course, here's grind and some controversial gamedev decisions, but it is as good as ftp gets. So go try it.

I was introcduced to the game by my son, who was looking for something free to play and fun. And boy oh boy it is just that. There is so much to do and anyone who likes a diablo style of game will enjoy this immensely. In fact having diablo 3 and this I would much rather play this game. The artwork is fantastic, very well done yet still feels like the comics from where the game came from. There is so much to do and so many characters, I doubt it will be a game that you bore from quickly. 10/10
