schild mentioned he'll be posting some as well, but I got booted fromt he game so figured I'd cull what I had. Took about 30, but only 12 were worth posting. I posted at this page and embedded tiny versions of each here. Click for larger images:








Most of these were from the Rikti that dropped on Skyway around 9pm Eastern.

Made it to level 7 after deleting my characters, and rolling up my reserved name before they closed. I'm getting the hang of the doing the first levels quickly.

Righ, I owe you one.  That pic gave me the greatest idea for my alt - an excentric, flying, assault weapons blaster named General George S. Patton Jr.

My first character in beta was completely clothed in jungle-colored camo, wearing a tin pot, smoking a fat cigar and hefting an assault rifle. He was called Kurtz.

Unfortunately I am 99% certain that that name is too long for the name field.

I spent the end-beta event over on Pinnacle server where I actually had a half-way worthwhile character to endure the invasion with.  

I had done better than mere screenshots - I took several cohdemo files which allow you to play back the action.   Unfortunately, the cohdemo functionality was broken in a recent patch.  

Fortunately, I had taken a few screenshots.  

Picture 1 Subtitle: Zoning into Skyway results in a rude reception

My initial contact with the Rikti was in Skyway City.   I was insta-ganked at the subway entrance.  Came back in (The Hospital was also spawn camped, but I managed to escape) and am demonstrating here the benefit of having both Stealth and Teleport powers as I bear witness to the continued Rikti reception to those arriving in Skyway.     The Rikti in Skyway were all level 21.    (Murgos tech character looks disturbingly similar to my own, The Nanites.)
Picture 2 Subtitle: Too many heroes, too few Rikti

Kings Row had far more handlable Rikti, around level 14-16.   Unfortunately, it also had far more heroes, and it was a race just trying to see a few before my fellow heroes fell on them like an avalanche of tights.
Picture 3 Subtitle: Invulnerable Rikti Spawning

After the event was officially over, Cmdr Korik tried to summon in some more fun for us, but for some reason these Rikti weren't aggressive and couldn't be attacked.   So they just sat around in *gigantic piles*, that were eventually manually despawned by the GMs.
