Why is DCUO down right now??

For all my fans of DCUO the server is down right now so they can some new updates.. And the gamer in me had to find out why so this is what i have come up with so far..

• Gear should now be consistently better as you progress from Duos, to T1 Hard Mode Alert loot, to Tier 1 marks Gear, to T2 Hard Mode Alerts/Raids loot, to T2 marks Gear to Tier 3 Raids loot and finally to Tier 3 marks gear.
• Fixed the Tier 2 Alert Dominance requirements which were too high.
• Adjusted the stat allocations on a number of items that had extremely unbalanced amounts of Might, Precision, Restoration or Vitalization.
• Stats on all Epic quality Tier gear purchased with marks have been increased.
• Stats on Tier 1 and Tier 2 Epic quality PvP gear have been increased.
• Stats on the Tier 2 Hard Mode Alerts have been increased.
• Stats on the Epic quality Tier 1 Hard Mode Alert gear have been decreased.
• Minor adjustments were made to the stat allocations of other gear.
• Trinket effects no longer apply growth and will no longer interrupt combat with a forced revert to normal animation. They no longer apply flat percentage bonuses but apply a flat bonus based on the tier they are earned.
• Optimizations and various fixes to improve client stability

Powers & Weapon Skills

• The following abilities no longer stack with themselves: Downdraft, Inferno, Wintry Tempest and Circle of Protection in damage role
• Reduced the damage penalty for being in healing role to 25%.
• Tank Role: Burning Determination, Winter Ward, Burnout and Shatter Restraints now all remove and prevent Controller debuffing effects for eight seconds and apply five seconds of Breakout.
• Control Role: Debuffs applied by Stasis Field, Thought Bubble and Horrific Visage will now properly persist after the target breaks out.
• Iconic Powers: Amazonian Deflection now adds 5000 Defense and Toughness rather than a flat amount of Mitigation.

• Increased the cool down of Meteor and reduced the length of time the meteor object remains in the world.
• Fire tank secondary health buffs should no longer occasionally bleed over to group members.

• Gadgets turrets will now attack targets recently damaged by their owners rather than whatever they are most angry at. This means they will no longer sit there brooding over subdued targets that can no longer be attacked.
• Stasis field now properly states that it reduces defense while in Control role.

• Lowered cost of Hibernation to 35% supercharge
• The cost of Freeze ray has been reduced to 35% supercharge.

Martial Arts
• Corrected an issue with Shuriken Storm and adjusted its damage to bring it in line with other ranged combos.

• Pyrokinesis now properly states that it reduces healing while in Control role.
• Telekinesis no longer applies a Defense debuff bringing it in line with other 1st rank controller powers.

• Gorilla Form: You now cannot earn supercharge while in Gorilla Form, the cost has been raised to 35% supercharge and the ability now has a 60 second cool down. Stomp Smash is now vulnerable to interrupt. The ranged tap ability has been updated, is now also a Block Breaker but vulnerable to interrupt.
• Wolf Form: Leaping Backfist is now vulnerable to Interrupt.
• Wolf Form: Increased damage bonus to 40% and reduced the critical hit damage bonus received when you KO an enemy.

• Hive Mind now increases Restoration by 270 instead of a flat percentage and no longer applies critical hit bonuses.
• Insectoid form damage penalty reduced to 25%
• Carnage now increases Precision by 115 and no longer applies critical hit damage bonuses

• Transcendence is no longer vulnerable to interrupt mechanics.

Dual Pistol
• Full Auto will now cause damage to targets it block breaks. This only block breaks your current target and the block break is no longer a continous effect.

Legends PvP

• Precision and Weaponization scores are now better balanced to be more in line with Might scores.
• Health was increased for all Legends characters.
• The Legends Soder Cola amount of healing has been increased.
• De-buff effects were removed from Legends character abilities. Unlike player character PvP where there are mechanics in place to allow the removal de-buffs, there are no such mechanics in place in Legends.
• Block breaking effects were removed from Legends super powers, as block breaking is only intended to be possible with weapon attacks.
• Cool downs and deploy times on many abilities were adjusted to bring them in line with similar abilities.
• Balanced the damage on abilities that were dramatically out of scale with other abilities.
• Abilities that did not cause damage now do, and scale with other abilities of that type.

• The Legends Joker and Two-Face characters will now call all three of their goons instead of just one


• PvP Weapons with slow animating Block Break abilities are now also able to Block Break with their ranged tap abilities too after they have purchased their regular block breaking ability. However, their range tap abilities are now immediately vulnerable to interrupt instead of being vulnerable only after repeated use. This change affects Brawling, Dual Wield and Two handed.
• Tier 2 PvP weapons now add 352 Precision when used against players rather thn a global damage buff.
• PvP trinkets now remove both regular and role specific PvP debuffing effects applied by player super powers.

• East End Lighthouse: Fixed an issue that was causing clients to crash.
• John Bolaris is back and can be found again in the Tomorrow District.

Too Good at Goodbyes - Sam Smith (cover by @MattBloyd)

When ya new favorite voice covers one of ya favorite voices!!!! Thats exactly what happened when Matt Bloyd chose to cover Sam Smith's new song "Too Good At Goodbyes" it feels a lot warmer then the original that haunts us when Sam sings it. We love how Matt put his own  twist on it and showed off that killer range that made us a fan from the  first day we heard him. Here is what Matt had to say about choosing the cover I am a huge fan of Sam Smith's voice and his artistry. After a two year hiatus, Sam is back with "Too Good at Goodbyes" and I could not be more excited. He's truly an inspiration. When I heard this song I KNEW I had to cover it and got right on it. Hope you love my take on this JAM. Check it out here: See more from Matt Bloyd   Twitter |   Facebook |   Instagram |   Recorded, mixed, filmed, and edited by Adrian

Mental Clarity reviews: Where the Wild Things Are

First let me start off by saying that this movie was NOT intended for kids. The director himself stated this fact when people mainly parents were complaining that it was too sad and not kid friendly. The movie was geared towards adults that grew up on the book in the 60’s. Now with that said the movie was good. It had a very sad underlining tone to it. You can tell by the way the actors behaved towards one another along with the scenery in the movie. It was a very tan-ish scene going on. There were a few times I became bored and was ready to fall sleep but I stuck with it and I’m glad I did. The monsters in the movie seemed so angry. In the movie adaption you can since a love lost between the two monsters even with the boy and his family with the shots of things his father gave him but no father. There is not much I can say because I had mixed feelings about this movie. As I’m sure a lot of people have. The best thing I can say is ignore the book when you see this movie, but do see the

Pop News: John Mayer Humiliated By Taylor Swift???

So word on the street is John Mayer is not happy with Taylor Swift writing a song about him. Now she doesn't say the song is about him but the title is "Dear John" lmao. Now we all know Taylor is talking about john with this line right here Dear John, I see it all, now it was wrong. Don't you think 19 is too young to be played by your dark twisted games, when I loved you so? But we also know she will never admit it to keep her "innocent Girl" look. John takes it as a direct shot at him even if it is cheaply written (His words not ours) It made me feel terrible, I was really caught off-guard, and it really humiliated me at a time when I'd already been dressed down. That quote is  from a interview he had with Rolling Stone Magazine that will be out this month. Do you think he is just picking at Taylor or is the song really about him?? Let us know
