  • Fractal Define R6 Tempered Glass Case: Modular, Quiet, Beautiful - MMORPG.com

    Tempered glass does not help with noise reduction or cooling, indeed some studies show it can help noise transmission. this is fashion and nothing more. Your rig should perform well, that's its sole purpose, its not an objet d'art.

    Apart from that this is one of the best cases you can buy, so if you can overlook the gimmick its worth a look.

    Pretty sure you can pick up every Fractal Design case windowless to reduce noise. For sure, tempered glass is definitely noisier than going windowless. That said Fractal Design cases tend to be quieter than most other designs, so it's probably not as large of a tradeoff here as it may be with other cases.

    Fractal Design cases are the best.

    What about Champions Online, Marvel Omega and DC Universe Online? Why do former City of Hero players tend to pass on these games, still hoping for that decent comic mmo? Why are you looking over these games hoping Ship of Heroes or City titans can fill your void? I want to know what went wrong with the current games in your opinion? Or past game in the case of Gazillion's mmo.
    I played CO at launch. It did some things well. Combat was pretty fun and the travel powers were really awesome (Teleport and Burrowing were really neat), but I hated the setting and aesthetic. It was too campy. Not a fan of the Silver/Bronze Age of comics.

    Marvel Heroes I loved and played for years, but it was a deeply flawed game and it was mismanaged into catastrophe.  Great idea, frustrating execution.

    DCUO, I'm not a huge fan of the DC Universe, and the game just felt kind of janky. I did enjoy the open world PvP at launch, though.  Being able to encase another player in a giant ball of ice and then toss him a couple blocks down the street was pretty hilarious. I found the customization lacking as well.

    I'm not really looking forward to any of the successor titles coming out. If they're good, I'll play them, but I'm not hanging onto every development in hopes that one of them will fill the void. That's a good way to set myself up for disappointment.

    I wonder can the system be gamed? 

    I will give insightfuls to anyone that gives me some...lolz
    It looks like 1 lol gives you 1 point more. Giving 20 lols took something between 2-3 minutes, so raising you to Legendary would require between 3-5 hours of time.

    I sense an opportunity for Chinese power-lolling service.

    Every reaction seems to be worth the same (1 point). I couldn't test on what a Promote -reaction would be worth.

    It looks like quoting you isn't worth of any points.
    Oh wow you actually came and gave me 20 lols

    Hmm I might  be real busy tomorrow, when I get up, handing out returns!

    I am at 1073 points as of this post.

    EDIT: Just gave you 20 insightfuls Vrika
    Maybe it would be better to ask

    @MikeB is trading reactions or similar activity forbidden? I wouldn't want to get accidentally banned for doing something like this.
    Absolutely. Don't do this.
  • Marvel Strike Force is Galaxy of Heroes for Marvel Fans - MMORPG.com

    Yes I've played the last week or two now as well. My guild just started raids (a bit confusing) but the whole energy gate thing is tiresome. The "auto win" button on 3 star victory won battles is nice especially since those count for daily achievements... 2 more days and I unlock Wolverine I guess.

    Foxnext says 60 playable characters but I'm thinking that includes ho-hum ones like "Hand Archer", "Hand Sorceress", "S.H.I.E.L.D. Medic", etc. which is a bit boring.

    I'll unlock him today. You can keep doing the dailies every day to get more shards for him too from what I hear.
