Forming A Supergroup In Champions Online

Illustration for article titled Forming A Supergroup In Champions Online

Some superheroes largely work alone, but even the most jaded vigilante has to bring in a little backup now and then. Here's how that works in Champions Online.

I've been a bit worried about how group roles would work in a game with such flexibility to its character creation, but Cryptic's Bill Roper seems to think that won't be a problem. In fact, he explains that multiple characters which fill the same role will be able to group together better due to the different ways to go about filling said role. It sounds a bit complicated, but I'm sure the assembled superhero community will be able to figure it out.

There is a lot of build flexibility in Guild Wars too. What happens there is that the hardcore community ultimately establishes what the reasonable builds are the fill needed roles.

These community established roles become the common knowledge and expectation on which ad hoc player groups are built.

In the event that your build is just a wildly suboptimal pick-a-mix that can't do any role well, you're going to have a terrible time trying to find a group once this happens.

Players who are dedicated to grouping rather than soloing will have a strong incentive to be a specialist rather than a pick-a-mix.
