You remember how cool it is when all seems lost and then one or more riders appear, usually on white horses? Like Gandalf in Helm's Deep?

Right now the CoH/V community experiences the darkest days of its existence - and just like in the stories, heroes ride to the rescue. Tony has rallied the troops and we face incredible odds. (I know it is a bit cheesy, but please indulge me. Anyway...)

And out of nowhere appear our heroes, siding with us - their names are famous...Neil Gaiman, John Kovalic & John C. Wright have joined their voices with ours and support us. Special credit has to go to our very own Mercedes Lackey though who wrote a personal letter to the NCSOFT CEO offering to endorse their games for the next 10 free of charge if they save CoH. I can only say... wow!

I have actually transferred THE Zoser to Virtue earlier this day in an Internet Café and was then trying to log into using my second cousin's ancient P4 laptop which sports an amazing 512 MB ram. Sadly it was not up to the task so I spent the hour (and a bit more) tweaking settings and then watching the progress bar in the Atlas Park screen going up only to be thrown back to the loading screen. Hopefuly there will be other events I can join ...

The description in youtube.com says that the maker of the video visited each Atlas Park instance one by one that rally night, got the list of participating characters, and somehow managed to rendered all of them in one instance.

I accidently noticed Blastor in the draft version of the video of 3000 renders, but as the finalised version includes 3700 renders, Blastor probably lost his nice centre location somehow :)...

Anyway, I'd really like to be able to do something like this, but it's probably requires high technical skill.

I only found out yesterday. It's my own fault for not checking the forums...have been so busy. Needless to say it was distressing news. If I wasn't sat at my work desk the tears would have freely run down my cheeks, instead I had to try to hold them in check and even now I am struggling as my eyes well up again.

This may be goodbye to the game I have loved for the longest, but one I will remember forever. I wasn't even this upset when I closed my own game server after years of running it!

I remember the day I met the Intrepids in CoH not long after joining the game and I hope that memory never fades. It was all a long time ago now and I've played other games throughout those years, but....I always go back to CoH. Nothing has come close to the spirit of this game, nothing has given me greater pleasure than to help others in the game, experience the awww of new events and to team with friends from around the world. Also, on the other side of it no other game has made me cry so much and i'm not talking tears of laughter, but tears of frustration!! When the Statesman Task Force was introduced along with it came the most wanted badge of all, the Master of Statesman TF. I had to have it and as soon as possible. It was really hard to complete the TF without anyone dying and we came so close, so many times. Then when we done it we were so proud and also very relieved!!

This game has so much in it, not only have developers put huge amounts of missions in it, but the community has put their own creations in and added thousands of missions that have laughed and sometimes been horrified by! hehe.

It took me well over a year to get my first level 50 and I still remember the ding :-) Then with changes made to the game it became faster to level and soon I had many level 50's. Not one of them I haven't enjoyed, but obviously some more than others! I've spent hours and hours fine tuning, collecting, playing and dying lol. I remember when dying was a big annoyance due to the debt you collected, urgh!

There are so many memories, so many players names that I can think of, that have made my time on CoH the best time i've ever had in an online game. I don't think that anything else will ever match it.

I'll miss my characters, most especially Tidgy and Betty. Betty because she was my first and the one that I was playing when I met the Intrepids and Tidgy because of the enourmous amount of time I enjoyed playing her, collecting hundreds of badges and healing while controlling those bad guys.

Now it's all going and when I tire of what I am currently doing I won't be able to "go back".

Everything is crossed then for the future, fingers, toes, arms, boobs...whatever!!
I'll never let go.

In case people aren't keeping in the loop on everything that's going on (and I know it can be tough to) I'm adding in here that the next planned event is as detailed below:

Maressa on Titan Network Forums wrote:
Ever since our Rally last weekend Tony and I have been working on what our next in game event should be. Rallies are great but we wanted to something a bit more active and something that non VIPs could get involved in. We also wanted something that would be a nod to the developers without whom we would have no game to play. With all of that in mind I would like to announce:

Positron's Ally

Two days of Task Force fun.

On Thursday September 20th at 9PM Eastern/ 2AM UK

And

Saturday September 22nd at 12 Noon Eastern/5PM UK

Join TonyV, myself and the entire Titan Network team in running the Positron Task Forces, part one and two. In the world’s biggest synchronized Positron Task Force group across all the City of Heroes Servers.

Come with a team already formed or make yourself a PUG while you’re there!

Take screenshots, chat with old friends, make new friends and listen to your favorite server based radio stations.


I'm suggesting that we aim to have at least 1 Intrepids team doing this on the saturday time slot (I know that the majority of us aren't going to be able to hit the Thursday one, and the organisers know that).

It would be useful to get declarations of interest\attendance here. I've chosen to do this here rather than start a whole new post... if people think a new post is a better idea let me know and I'll split this off.

For those interested the post on the Titan Forums it's here

Sorry I've missed some of this guys, but logged on tonight and talked to Blast. I would love to join you guys for one "Last Blast" as I can't see myself catching you guys in-game for anything else - or in any other game at the mo. GW2 just doesn't do it for me in the same way, nor did SWTOR (although it did well for a short while), The Secret Wars is pretty good but I have so little time right now that I'm not even tempted to go back to that.

I somehow feel that NC Soft have got all this wrong. The game is too good to just throw away like this.

Anyway guys, good to hear you story Betty. I feel the same. Let me know if you guys could all make at least one "Last Blast" together close to closing time. I'll get it into my diary!
