Title: Account reactivation / double XP starting tomorrow
Post by: ezrast on October 07, 2009, 06:05:42 PM
As I recall, pretty standard as far as double XP weekends go:

We're celebrating the recent launch of Issue 16: Power Spectrum in style by offering all our players a Double XP weekend! But that's not all, all inactive accounts in good standing will also be given access to City of Heroes and City of Villains® during the Double XP weekend!

Here are the dates and times:

    * Starts: Thursday, October 8, 2009 at 8:59 a.m. Pacific Time (11:59 a.m. Eastern Time)
    * Ends: Sunday, October 11, 2009 at 11:59 p.m. Pacific Time (2:59 a.m. Eastern Time)
Game client (http://www.cityofheroes.com/account/download_game_client/download_city_of_heroes.html), recent new features (http://www.cityofheroes.com/news/patch_notes/issue_16_power_spectrum_featur.html), nice summary of said new features (http://forums.f13.net/index.php?topic=17421.msg696557#msg696557). Aside from power customization, highlights include new difficulty options (can be way easier or way harder than was possible with the old system) and super-sidekicking (everyone auto-SKs to the team leader's level).

I played.  The new sidekicking was pretty cool.  The one time I got adjusted down I didn't xp though.  The server seemed stutter a lot more than I remember in spite of significally reduced population.

Somewhere in the general options you can choose to either get normal XP or get no XP but double inf when exemping down. Mine defaulted to getting normal XP, but who knows what evil lurks in the heart of the options system.

Also, what's up with all this patrol XP? I know it's supposed to accrue when logged off but all my characters keep getting boatloads of it during play seemingly at random.

I didn't get inf either.  But it didn't last long because the rest of the group caught up to me quickly.  I went from 8 to 14 in that group.

That's actually how double XP weekends work. You get patrol XP forever.
