The climactic Nemesis battles in Champions Online are set to play out similarly to PvP battles.We interviewed Bill Roper earlier this week, and asked all sorts of questions about Champions Online.There was a lot of talk about the Nemesis system, and Roper told us that the battles aren’t going to play out like normal boss fights in MMOs.”The Nemesis has the most advanced AI and powers interaction of any of the enemies you face,” teased Roper. “They’re designed to use the same powers that the players use, and they take advantage of all the synergies between powers. They don’t do things like a lot of AIs you see that are on timers or other shticks, but they actually use powers, use cooldown, and react just like a player does in terms of how they use their powers and what you’re doing.””We want them to be like a really exciting PvP style fight, so you’re fighting kind of a computer-controlled equivalent of another hero.”For our full interview with Bill Roper and a lot of information on Champions Online and the Nemesis system, check back later today.
