Champions Online character profiles

September 1, 2009 5 comments

I am currently on an assignment in Abu Dhabi. Here it is currently the holy month of Ramadan, which means no food and no drink between sunrise and sunset. As a foreigner one is expected to respect the local customs and at least not eat or drink in public places.

This means that restaurants etc are generally closed until after sunset, so I am spending a bit of hungry time at the hotel room waiting for sunset – browsing the web among other things.

One of the things I looked at now was the Champions Online web site, where I discovered a link I had not seen before – “My Characters”.

It turns out that this goes to a few pages for your current in-game characters. For each character on the main page one can click and go into further details, which shows a lot of different info about the character – picture, powers selected, list of active and completed missions, inventory, equipped items etc.

One can also update the character’s bio and do blog posts; the latter I assume will trigger the blog event that is part of the /socialmedia settings.

There is also an option to change and the pose and view the character profile picture. Saving the picture did not seem to do any good to the picture on the main page though, but there is perhaps some other image this is supposed to reflect?

It looks quite neat, although I am not sure how other people can see my character profiles through a web browser? I did not see any links to look at other people’s characters. There is an “Other Characters” text, but it is not hyperlinked.
