The end of City of Heroes
I last visited back in 2010, but I actually quit the game back in 2008, and transitioned over to WoW as my main. CoH had some great features that I still wish WoW had, such as the nearly limitless character customization possibilities, and the wonderful Sidekick system which allowed friends to play together no matter what their level difference was.
I still remember fondly the Costume Contests that used to happen every weekend in Atlas Park. And hanging out in Pocket D with the streaming DJ's doing their radio shows...the early forerunners of events like Club Trix. Good times.
Sadly a couple years ago I had sudden and catastrophic computer problems and all of my CoH screenies were lost. But Paragon City and the Heroes I met there will live on in my heart.
Virtue was an amazing server and I kept going from place to place to say my farewells and such. So many people the last day it kept crashing and then have a 1k+ que up.
Much love to my fellow gamers, heroes and villains alike!

GTR Rocks The Dance Party 10/04/2004
You old timers might remember the old "Dance Party" that preceded Pocket D. This is my first supergroup/guild "Girls That Rock" from Infinity server.

I mean, I don't know how you feel about it, but Champions Online is still around and kicking, and apparently has been seeing a surge of growth after CoH went dark.
I've played there a little and there's always tons of people around, the character customization is insane, and it has most of the features WoW does.
When I read a book, for a time I can leave the real world and become a part of that story. Isnt WoW the same? I know for me it is. Khaz is the embodiment of everything I am in real life.
He is a brazen little adventurer, often at the detriment of his(as well as others) safety. He believes in an eternal goodness and fights for it. He fights evil at every chance and loves nothing more than a quiet moment of good music with an ale at the Kharanos Inn.
He is me and I am him.
I think of the day that WoW will cease to exist. I think of all of the adventures, all of the people met and bade goodbye. It is a death of sorts, and I wil not welcome it.
Good post Kopperschot
But I won't.
Because that game's gone now.
And my OC's are now in that lovely limbo wherein one decides what universe they'll appear in next. Perhaps even as a commercial venture. :)
