    Use Cream Soda instead, or click on options in tequila and add this manifest: https://icanhazchzbrgr.com/Manifests/Rebirth-i24.xml

    I would of course recommend playing on Rebirth since Homecoming is Leo's shit easymode server and Rebirth desperately needs more active players.

    I registered an account on this website, however I still can't login? Do I need to activate it or something?

    Ok, well I just started on the rebirth and I thought it was going to be very similiar, but no, the rebirth one just feels better? Like, I'm enjoying it more; though maybe cause I went with a different build? Idk

    If you're going homecoming then start with blue, that's where most people seem to go to, at least for the EU servers. It doesn't matter though cause you can talk to an npc and change.

    If on rebirth you'll have to go through a big chain quest to switch sides, there also might a cooldown on that too.

    The community is a lot better. I had a blast grouping with people yesterday.

    It works like on live, so you can only get 5 tips per 20 hours, and it takes 10 tips to change your alignment. So it'd be 6 days to go from full hero to full villain, or vice versa, although you can start grouping with the other faction once you're a rogue/vigilante and that only takes one shift and you technically switch sides at 2 shifts.

    https://paragonwiki.com/wiki/Alignment

    I'm blueside on Rebirth, if there's enough interest we can set up a supergroup or whatever.

    I've got a blue on Rebirth, name's Brudda. It's the most uncreative character you can imagine. I hit things.

    What's the Praetor/Loyalist stuff about? I made a character in that city too, Praetor side. Is there any reason to play the one over the other? I mean hero/villain versus praetor/loyalist.

    That's referred to as goldside; it's their alternate reality where the heroes are evil and they formed an oppressive authoritarian dictatorship. The lore and missions are kind of interesting from what I remember; you play your first 20 levels there and then are forced to pick either hero or villain, although you can go right back because there are 20-30 and 30-40 zones in Praetoria. But the mobs there are jerks with -regen and -stamina which is kind of a dick thing to do to low level players, and hardly anybody does goldside because they don't get access to Death From Below which is how everybody gets their first 10-20 levels nowadays.

    Anyway it's worth doing once or twice if you care about the universe, but I'd just stick to the main game if you just want to play.

    Mostly, yes, though travel powers can't go as fast as in DCUO.

    Just checked the CoH wiki, does not seem like there is an archetype for high tech power armor heroes.

    Archetypes are more about what you want to do, not how you do it. You could easily make a technology blaster and deck him out in power armor costume pieces, or whatever.

    Power Armor would be someone who has good offense and defense. From what I can gather Blaster would be a glass cannon. Funny enough Champions Online has an archetype with that exact name and theme. Too bad the game is so heavily fortified behind a paywall that it is hardly worth the effort downloading, which is why I stopped many years ago after only a few hours.

    Theres the sentinel in i25, which has acess to primary ranged and secondary defensive. Its pretty much ironman.

    Some are on homecoming, some are in rebirth I think. I switched back over to homecoming cause after talking to the community for a bit, I got the impression they aren't going to change much if anything in the rebirth server. For example I got bashed for mentioning that the travel powers were too slow and a cap increase would be nice. Plus homecoming is more populated, especially if you're in US.

    It's your loss if you want to play on Homecoming. While they're probably going to be able to make changes in the future, they have a much smaller coding team, and the whole point of the i24 codebase is that it's open source and it's being developed with future content and expandability in mind. The idea is that this new codebase will allow server creators to set up things pretty much however they want, including making it easy to add mods and new missions, taskforces, etc, although they're still at the point where SCORE has more features. As you'd expect since it had an 8 year head start. But somebody is going to make an i24 funserver with an insane xp rate and travel powers turned up 500% or something, just give it time.

    Also homecoming is run by a bunch of dicks who think the game should be trivially easy so if you're on that side, I guess you can fuck off and play with them.

    Is the paragon wiki a good source of information for CoH? Or is the other one better?

    Installed the game, past midnight now, after reading on the wikis I think I am going with a Gravity/Time controller in a power suit after a good nights sleep.
