i17

I new issued of City of heroes has been released today and of all the upgrades and improvments made to the game... this is the one that makes me go "*SQUEEEE*":

In-Game E-mail: You can now use in-game e-mails to send Influence/Infamy to your own characters or to other players' characters via in-game e-mails. (You still cannot send Influence, Infamy, or items from a Hero to a Villain or vice versa.)

Yes I know you wow people have been able to do this FOREVER... but this is MAJOR to someone like me that has oodles of alts. The down side to this is that we still cannot send Items... but I guess at least we can use the base storage racks (if you have them) for trading off items between toons.

for a full list of updates if you are interested and don't already know... can be found here:

I remember when WoW had a delay in the arrival time of mail. Ugh.

Getting this service IS a big deal, and honestly is "behind the times" in terms of MMO's. That's not an attack on CoX either, merely an observation. Why WoW STILL doesn't have armor tints (outside of PvP) is beyond me.

Yup. Anything that can be traded on the markets can be emailed.

Other details:

1. You can attach only one item per email, but a single email can have both an item and inf.
2. Emails with items/inf can only be sent to global addresses - btw, you can email global addresses now, too. ;)
3. You can only have 20 unclaimed attachments in your inbox at a time.
