    Introducing Amplifier Sets

    The Infinite Crisis October Update is adding an early version of our upcoming Amplifiers Sets feature. While future Beta updates will allow players to design their own Amplifier Sets, the October Update Amplifier Sets are pre-made examples that serve the same end-result: personalized Champions and Artifacts.

    I'm cautiously optimistic. Personally, this style of 'rune' based character building is a form of fluff that I've never much cared for.

    I always preferred that what happens during a match be decided by, well, what happens in the match. As opposed to before it's even queued for.

    I am fine with it so long as they have a game mode without amplifiers

    Re: Introducing Amplifier Sets

    Love the concept . My only concern is that 2 sets seems too few to start with. How are we supposed to have "personalized Champions and Artifacts" with so few slots? Let alone 3 different sets for a single character, as shown in the Batman example.

    I know there's a monetization component, but this is getting dangerously close to 'play to win.'

    Conceptually, holy ****, this is a wonderful idea.

    Protectors will unlock Amplifiers by gaining Protector Levels or spending Merit.
    Not sure how feel.

    It's kind of early to put a gating mechanism in, isn't it?

    Now, if you don't want to spend money on this game/buy a Founder's Pack, you get to buy Amplifiers, Stolen Powers, AND characters?

    Additional grind...

    Re: Introducing Amplifier Sets

    I agree with Spaghetti. The amount of customization possible sounds incredible, but depending on the costs of these Amplifiers, it may be League's terrible Rune system all over again. In League you have to grind a ridiculous amount to get runes and then even more to get pages for them so you can actually use the runes you finally bought. It gets to the point where something that is supposed to create more options actually becomes more limiting instead. For example, with only 2 rune pages in League, I cannot fill every role in ranked play and I cannot play a variety of champions in those roles. I can play like 3 roles max, and that's not even with optimized pages. Now these things won't even be such a huge issue for people like me and Spaghetti who play constantly and will have been in the game from the start, but it will be a HUGE turn off for newcomers later down the line (or people who don't play as much) who will already have the daunting task of Champion and Stolen Power collections..

    Thiiiiiiiiiiiiiis.

    Unless you earn every single thing related to Amplifiers by or at 30, and I mean ALL of it, except maybe pages, this is just another daunting grind. A daunting grind that will turn off those who don't like daunting grinds, or have already done daunting grinds in other mobas. I really think (and maybe I'm wrong) this will turn away more players than it pulls in. It will get rid of more players than it retains.

    Never fear! The Daunting Grind Pack™ is here! For the low cost of 29.99 you can have access to ALL of the amplifiers! If that isn't enough for you, then you'll enjoy the Daunting Grind Silver Pack™ for 59.99 that gives you all amplifiers that will come out over the next year!

    Which is why I generally don't do F2P games. Because the truth is, someone somewhere is paying for this game to keep it up and running. But they are paying more than if everybody had to pay for the game, and you end up with a garbage community because the game is free.

    Personally they can charge me $15 a month, and give me access to everything. Then I'll come and go as I please.
