Leaderboard: Do you plan to play on a City of Heroes rogue server?


I don’t know whether people have guessed by now, but a lot of the City of Heroes screenshots we use here on Massively OP are my old stash from way back in the day, mostly with my guildies’ butts showing through the haze of glorious particle effects (I played a lot of Storm and Sonic Res toons!). I loved this game you guys. It was a top two or three MMO for me for a long time, and it became my last refuge after Star Wars Galaxies was sunsetted at the end of 2011. And then… well you know how 2012 went down.

So I am bubbling over with excitement here – I even got my kids into Paragon Chat (the non-combat/legal emu) so they could get acclimated this weekend. I got MIDs all set up and started mapping out character concepts. My oldest kid was one year old when this game went down, and now he’s as excited as I am at the prospect that we might together get to go, hunt, and kill skuls. He made a Bots Mastermind to fly around Paragon Chat. It’s intoxicating.

But as for the rogue servers themselves, I’m personally waiting to see what NCsoft will do next. I want to play, you bet, but more importantly, I want to talk about playing, to share it with everyone, with the thousands upon thousands of people who signed up for this. I don’t really want to game in the shadows.

How about you? Do you plan to play on a City of Heroes rogue server?

Sure, when it’s not breaking the law.

I played, it was fun. I have SWG:L while it’s shutdown.


When all the dust settles over this…

(It appears to be a dust storm in a blender currently. >.< )

Not anymore.

Well they got hit by NCSOFT….
All i can say is fuck them. Not only they closed the game but they wont even let it come to life through other means.
They really don’t care about the fans and player as long as they are involved in it and making money.
Just fuck them. Had so much fun playing on this server after so long now its gone again =.= .

And just like that, it’s gone again.

They actively teach how to launch old multi player games to Jr High students in the cloud what are the problems here?


Oh, yes. It’s unlikely that I’ll go full-on and recreate all the alts (so I say now…) as their ludicrously enhanced Incarnate selves, you better believe I’ll make a few characters to zoom around in pure, nostalgic glee.

I feel a little bit like Superman finding the bottled city of Kandor. There it is – a living glimpse of a world I thought I’d never see again, and I can visit it. I won’t be living there anymore but gosh – it’s sure wonderful to see it again.

Do I wish it could be somehow official? That the spectre of another retreat into the phantom zone could be banished? Yep. But while it’s there, I’m going to enjoy the experience, and be grateful that Paragon City still exists.


Maybe. It might be fun to dink around again with it for a little while and recreate my Elec/Elec Blapper. On the other hand it seems like it’s only inevitable that NCSoft is going to swing the hammer down on this stuff because it’s exploding with popularity. Like this drama all went down within a week, so who knows what the state of things will be like within two weeks, or a month.

Also in regards to catgirl butts, I had sonic blaster catgirl named catcophony! :D
