You know the old adage that superheroes and statistics go together like… well, nothing? That is, unless you’re a stat-themed crusader. Actuarial Man or something? Anyway, today we’re going to merge the two because City of Heroes Homecoming has some pretty impressive stats to share with you.
The rogue server claims that it has generated 159,537 new accounts since its release in April 2019. Those players have cumulatively accrued 47.3 million hours of game time in less than a year, which is more than 5,402 years. We’ll speculate that Massively OP readers accounted for at least a quarter of all of that.
More stats! More stats! Well, Homecoming’s 1.2 million created characters tend to skew more toward magic and mutation for their origin and are Brutes, Blasters, Masterminds, and Scrappers more often than not. The least-played? Arachnos Widows and Warshades, which weep quietly and vow revenge upon us all.
In any case, if you love seeing how all of the hours, characters, and classes break down — including a deep delve into the various powersets preferred by players — take a moment to check out this forum thread.
