So I'd like to share my first experience with COH. Yes, I know this forum is about COT, but I do believe we all had a special moment when we first started playing COH, and I would like to hear how you guys found out about it and maybe what you encountered at first?
When I first started playing, I was 18 and I had just moved to Arizona from San Diego with my mother who transferred here for work. I had no friends, no job, wasn't going to school and pretty much had nothing to do. I remember when I first saw the box at Target. It was on clearance. I don't remember how much I paid for it but it was cheap. The artwork on the cover and the cool screenshots are what sold me so I decided to try it out.
That first night, after a long install (on dial up) I logged into the game and immediately fell in love!
As I was always a fan of Storm from the X-Men my first character was sort of a Storm knock off with electrical blast powers and storm summoning. I spent a big part of the night running around Atlas Park zapping baddies left and right and blowing them away with gale. I had a lot to learn, as this was technically my first MMO and one of the big no nos was to not go around stealing other player's kills. In my defense, I thought I was helping them kill bad guys! lol
Anyway, how did you guys find out about the game and what was something you remember from your first experience?
I really do hope I can find something close to that feeling in COT.
