So Long City of Heroes

It has been announced that City of Heroes, the Supers MMORPG is closing up shop.

I never played CoH, but I did playtest the RPG version that Eden was working on back in the day.
Of course I stated up some characters.

What can I say? This was at the height of my involvement with The Dragon and the Phoenix.
I have to admit I liked how these turned out.

Ah... sad... COH was the first MMORPG I ever tried. So many fun memories of running around with my friend in Atlas City and beyond.
Something about the design of the game seemed to discourage the sort of nastiness I found later when I started playing World Of Warcraft.

Great times, really.

Yeah. This truly sucks as a long-timer CoH player. There is an effort by the CoH community to try and save the game, whether that is somehow by raising funds to buy the IP and source code or finding another publisher to buy and host it.

@knobgobbler: what do you mean by discouraging nastiness? CoH is a superhero game, you are meant to do the right thing.
