Introductions

Hello, everyone! I saw (and accidentally posted in) the introductions thread over in the European Lounge, and thought I'd make the same thread for the community at large over here in General.

I'm TheMadGent, I played on-and-off since 2006 and ran a bunch of characters, mostly on Virtue. None of my characters were very memorable, but the big ones included Vorax, Lazarus de Verin, and Dr. Thule. I never quite got anyone to 50, but some of my characters got close.

I played almost entirely on redside, despite it being the second child, and did a lot of RP, wherever I could find it. I really look forward to seeing the RP community here get off the ground, and hope to do my part in it.

I look forward to flying with all of you in the future!

The world is a mess and I just ... need to rule it.

Hello! I'm Syntaxerror37. I

Hello! I'm Syntaxerror37. I started playing in July of 2005. I was mainly a resident of Infinity, though I had quite a few on other servers. My main Hero was Joe Insanity, and main Villain CykaTek. I was one of those odd-balls who still enjoyed leveling a character through content even after seven years of play. I'm hoping I can be a more active member of the community this time around.

Hey, I'm Kemphler, formerly

Hey, I'm Kemphler, formerly known as Travern on the Virtue server. I started playing in September of 2004 and played right up through the end. My main hero was my Fire/Stone tank, Volcantus, and my main villain was my namesake Kemphler...though the mains definitely shifted over time. I spent a lot of time both running content as well as RPing, with most of my RP time spent hanging around Pocket D (Mainly played Lucian Nestore/Travern/Chase Santiago for that. Though I also had Arawn Cathal and Executioner Ragno.) Looking forward to the RP community that will grow here, and also can't wait to see what kinda builds I'll be able to crank out!

Hey ya'll, Xselcier here, but most everyone in CoH called me X. Long lost resident of Virtue. I got my start in the world of CoH on the pre-beta RP forums and then played in the beta. I played the game for about 6 years before finally moving on because most of my friends had done so. But I am fired up for the new game and look forward to meeting new people and possibly some old friends.

Putting yourself in another persons shoes emotionally is something that everyone has to experience eventually. It's part of learning to be a human being. Roleplayers do it for fun.

Hi, I'm Tannim222 currently an underling (just a joke) on the tech / programmers team. Mainly played as Grave Hand on the Justice server. I started playing CoH 2 months post launch and was there till the final disconnect message seared is statement onto my monitor. I'm glad our new forum home is up , just one more baby step in the direction of getting a new world in which we can speed / fly / jump through in our tights and armor and flashy lights.

Very excited to see what MWM has in store for us with this game - can't wait to see our heroes fly over a city again.

Shadow Elusive here. I used to say I came to the game just in time to get attached before it died (about six months before the announcement). I've since changed that to saying I was just in time to call myself part of this impressive community of odds defying folk. I played on Triumph and split my time pretty evenly amongst the five I had - but The White Rager (first a elec/regen, then a elec/fire, scrapper) and Shadow Elusive (a fire/devices blaster) were my earliest and definitely my favorites. But I spent plenty of time as Trinity Force, the SS/Shield Tank, and The Mor'inaga Hurricane (Kat/Regen) as well. Who am I forgetting...oh yes, the last one, the MA/Invul scrapper Street Watcher, who was designed so well as a reformed street thug one team I came late to thought I was a enemy mob (until I kicked the enemy blaster off the platform :D). I was very active on the old forum and look forward to pitching in here too.

Hello there, they seem to be improving the forums here now :) Have been unable to post on here due to timeouts since I started the hello thread for Europe.

Played COH since 2005, over 250 alts, 26 50's and way to much /played. Battler and British Battler were my globals, that I somehow lost at the F2P transition, so changed to The Real Battler, to many alts to name, but on Defiant Hammerok, Star Furie and Battler were some, Union was British Battler, Dr Glacier and Power Maiden and on my NA servers spent lots of time on all the servers, British Warrior, British Vanguard and British Furie were probably my most played there.

Playing mainly Rift at the moment with a little WoW with my kids.
Tried TSW but couldn't get into it, and couldn't stand CO or DCUO.

Hopefully we won't have WW3 and this game will get made :)

Greetings, heroes and villains alike! You may call me Doomplague, and as many of you I am a villain displaced in time and space. Formerly of the Rogue Isles (Victory Server), I was a member of the villain group Chaos Rising. Ah, but the terror we would wreak on the worthless and misguided heroes in Recluse's Victory. To this day I have yet to meet a hero worthy of my malice. I look forward to the destruction to come...

P.S. Kickstarter is the great evil of the internet, and I approve XD

Hi everyone!

Hi everyone!

I just wanted to re-introduce myself since we have started moving to our new forums here.

A quick background for myself, I was introduced to CoH in 2004 by a friend and was hooked instantly. It was my very first MMO and the only one that ever held my interest for any period of time. I had more Alts than I can remember on multiple servers though in the last couple years my home was mainly on Virtue.

Less than 2 weeks to go before Kickstarter and I can't wait to see what there is in store for us . :)

Only just discovered the Phoenix Project and I am very excited. I am another British player in CoH I was known as Dr Graviton. I was a veteran and never stopped playing from being in the beta right up to the end. It's the only MMO game that I have never left it had it's issues but generally I loved it and miss it dearly. I played on the US servers my whole time, purely coz they were available the earliest. Good friends with the renowned Red Tomax and my main toons were on Infinity and included my main Dr Graviton, Binary Star, Captain Neutron, Kestrel, Ice Pack and the Masked Magician.

Greetings all. I am Grayfigure, a watcher, intervener, and adventurer. Played City of Heroes/Villians under the callsign @Masked Prodigy, with such memorable characters (to ME at least XD ) as Nexus Novae, Masked Prodigy, Blazeknight Thorne, and 0DIN50N. Currently in Champions Online under @Grayfigur3. Current charas are : Nexus Nova, Masked Prodigy (noticing a pattern here? ;) ), Blaqhawke, Bloodkurse, and Avenger Gold. For those that know me (probably a VERY short list), good to be around again! For those that dont (the other 99.9999% of the planet XD) I say to you, W3ll M3t!!

Waiting with Baited Breath and hope in the heart. The City is gone, but perhaps the Dream may live on in a different form. Even if it doesn't.....the caring, and talent behind this project leaves me with nothing but pride in our little community and hope for a future for Heroes, whether the Dream we all hope for....or something More.....

Hey everyone!! I played CoX

Hey everyone!! I played CoX under my global @Voltaire Ray since i2 after a co-worker told me how good the game was and kept playing until the end was announced on Freedom and Pinnacle servers. It was a sad moment for our SG/VG as if felt like a family being torn apart without any valid reason for it to end.

I am grateful for everyone at MWM who are spending their free time to work on The Phoenix Project. Definitely can't wait to see what they come up with and will be more than happy to support MWM as much as possible to bring a fractured community back together.

Greetings and salutations. Used to play on Virtue server for quite a while. Main was a Rogue named Modesty (Stone/Stone Brute) who ran a little Threat Group for friends call Wrath, Inc. Had a bad case of Alt-itis for most of the time I played, pretty sure i spent more time in the Character Generator than playing the rest of the game. I look forward to enjoying many glorious days pillaging and pilfering in Titan City.

Hello, started playing the City of game in 2004, I remember the day it was released - it was my birthday :D... On the game I played mostly on Triumph and Virtue. Very stoked about The Phoenix Project, whatever comes from the work of the dedicated staff of MWM and the fans of the genre, the project is born from something pretty special and is a hallmark in the mmo genre. Because of this, and my hope it releases - the project has my undying support.

Hello everyone! NightLight

Hello everyone! NightLight here!

I played on Virtue, nearly exclusively, on and off. It started at the start of the game, or atleast 1 issue in - I played on my sister's Boyfriend's account and instantly fell in love with CoH. I then got my own copy in early 2006, and played until a year before it closed. At that time, my computer melted down, and limited money kept me from getting a new one. I was incredibly saddened to see CoH close down, and it took me 3 months to learn of this! I then later lost my account details from the other forums, but now that there's a new one, I'm in!

I played many, many characters - most of whom I do not remember. My main, and first level 50, was Secret Business Man, an Assault Rifle and Gadgets Blaster on Virtue. I joined the supergroup, Hero Dawn, early on in its existence, and watched it become the dominant supergroup on the server. I have a huge connection to CoH, and CoV, and I am sure I will grow that attachment to extend to this game, the game made by my fellow players.

I will guide you in the night.

Hello All. 1 eye archer here. Another CoH refugee. I got into committed playing by issue#2, rest of my family soon followed. My main hero was a TA/Archer (Defender) on Virtue named "Retribution". I am very happy to see this project going forward & though I do not have the computer, writing or artistic skills to contribute to this game, I do look forward to the kick-starter & being an actively vocal member of this community.

Another re-introduction for the pile! I'm an altoholic who's played COX off-and-on since beta. Most of my characters were on Virtue, so you other Virtuosos might remember one or more of my 50s: Vox (Sonic/Rad "Offender"), Naughty Nurse (Illu/Emp 'Troller), Watts (Elec/Elec Blaster, and the First Fifty), or Logosophist (Sonic/Pain Corrupter). I'm waiting with bated breath for the Kickstarter to... uhh.. kickstart. There's a chunk of my next check already budgeted for donation!

Hello, all. I read about the

Hello, all. I read about the project a few weeks ago, and I have high hopes for it, and also hope I can be of help if possible. I'm not a programmer, although I did design and program MUSHes, so I know about design from that angle. I was also very good at pre-guessing what players would do. Back in September 2000, one of my MUSH friends told me about "City of Heroes", which would have graphics! I joined those boards and was a closed beta tester on CoH, and then I was with CoH for its entirety until the final second in November 2013.

I love superheros, having collected superhero comics since I was a kid in the 1970s, then graduation to pen and paper RPGs (Champions/Hero System), and then, when I was disabled in January 2000, to MUSHing, and then over to MMOs, although only two of them kept me: City of Heroes and Lord of the Rings Online. On CoH, I was on Virtue. My characters in beta: Quickshot (energy/energy blast) and Glaysha (ice/ice tanker). Live: Aliuneidis, Quickshot, Swiftwind, Dasher, Cerebral Flame, Technotiger, Gizmodeus and Crystalline Commando.

I also never throw much out, so, for testing purposes, I have an 8 year old Windows Vista computer running a 2.4 Ghz Allendale and 4 GB RAM, and a Nvidia 9800GTX card and an old ASUS laptop running just about the same specs. In the next few months, I plan to build a new computer that's more Modern and run Windows 7 on it. I haven't settled on what components I want, yet.

I'm excited about this project, though, and I'll do all I can to help out.

Hi Everyone :) I was

Hi Everyone :) I was introduced to City of Heroes in May of 2004 by some friends of mine. My laptop computer could load the game discs but did not have the graphics card to be able to actually PLAY the game. So I would travel to my friends apartment about 35 miles away (I live out in the middle of nowhere in northern MN) and play on his desktop computer until I could save enough money to buy a BETTER laptop. Sigh. Those were some good days. I ran a kinetic electric defender named Tazerman on Justice server. I mostly solo-ed and very very slowly gained levels. I would street sweep in Kings Row and later in Steel Canyon and Skyway City. I can still remember the music as I would fly over different neighborhoods in those zones. And I battled a lot of trolls. I died a lot too. Some nights, just digging myself out of debt was a "successful" night. LOL But, when I did join up with a team, I was always welcomed and someone always took the time to "show me the ropes" per se of how to stay alive and play my toon more effectively. I can remember my first respec taskforce that summer of 2004, I remember dying a lot and hosping to IP, then flying as fast as possible to return to the reactor core and help keep my teammates alive. I think we failed (this was back when a respec tf lvl 24-32 was much more challenging). But damn, we had fun. Anyway, I stayed with the game right up until the end. Lots of toons. Lots of 50s. Lots of good memories. I am hoping that this new game will fill that void created when NCSoft shut down the servers in 2012. And I intend to be a part of the Kickstarter. I hope to team up with all of you at some point down the road and have some great adventures!

Hey all!

Hey all!

GlassWalker80 here. I started playing CoH in 2007 on and off as I quit playing WoW quite so much. I never got a chance to get involved in the RP community due to RL kicking into high gear with promotions, a move, marriage, and kids. I got more than my fill on WoW, however, so I know the value and fun that good RP is.

That being said, I've got about 20 years experience with all kinds of games and RP from AD&D 2nd Ed. (Holla!), Vampire: the Masquerade & Werewolf: the Apocalypse were my primary tabletop and RP influences. I spent about 3 or 4 years as an ST and online mod for a pair of White Wolf javachats and had an absolute blast doing it. I was also a guildmaster, officer, and raid leader for 2 different guilds in WoW, so I've got that experience as well.

I would absolutely love to volunteer my time in anyway possible, as I've moved away from most of my gaming group. I feel like I would be best able to contribute in terms of lore, setting, or story writing. I may be able to help on the business end as well, since my alter ego has managed a very successful business for the last 5 years. I don't know if I look for you guys, or wait for you to find me, but either way, here I am!

Great to see this up and running, and I'm excited to see what the future holds.

Hey everyone!!

Hey everyone!!

My name´s Eduardo i´m from Brazil and i started playing city of heroes by 2006 when the game arrived in Brazil. CoH was very important to me cause i was on releationship, and after 1 year i realized that i was using to escape from my real life.

Well, the relationship ended and city stayed on my life.

I was really addicted and played almost everyday and like a 30 - 40 hours a week (minimum). We had a lovely group on vent. One thing i recall was me and a friend started 2 characters on a friday, it was near Xmas, we took those 2 characters from level 1 - 50 in 4 days, but not farming, only doing TF/trials. Was a blast i played a troller earth/trick arrow, my queen of AoE powers i had 13 of them.

I introduced city to my boyfriend he played a blaster flame seducer and had a lot of fun too. Now we are playing SWTOR, but we can´t wait to support our KS.

Again sorry for my English, i dont study it for 15 years!!! crap getting old.

See you on-line.

Ed

On these Forums I decided to go by Shepherd. but the devs should know my real identity by my email since it's the same email I used for the other website. I played CoH from 2004 till 2008 then played Champions online and DCUO Those that played CoH and knew me from the arts forum know me very well. I played an immortal who wore a sleeveless trench coat and shades and wielded a sword. If Cresent is still a part of Missing World Media he knows me, since he is one of my buddies and I owe him a free comic book now that I self published my book.and am working on 2 more. lol

Hello everybody. I started on Villain side & was pretty much exclusive to Liberty server @ Naa. Got a trial account in 2006 & would play it when they reactivated it but went full time in 2007.

My first villain was Moon over Twilight (Dark/Ninja MM) from there A Lick of Frost (ice/cold cor), A Stroke of Midnight (Bane), .Underhanded (rad/kin corr), and Helga the Enforcer (SS/WP brute).

Then moved over to Hero side with Althea the Fair (elec/emp def), Morrighan Arwan (BS/Shield scrapper), .Double D (archery/psychic blaster) & De'mon (warshade).

I really do miss the game & the community of the game. I have yet to find any other game (and community) to match CoX & looking forward to the spiritual successor.

Hello everyone! I found CoH

Hello everyone! I found CoH through my brother Jim Justice who played since inception. I was mostly on Triumph and played for only 1 year before the close, but managed to make good friends and spend some quality time with my bro, who lives 1000 miles away.

Hope the game devs well.

Hello everyone. I was known

Hello everyone. I was known as Comicsluvr on the Virtue Forum (with WAY too many alts...). My main Villain was Total Violence and my main hero was Shocker Reloaded. I am a massage therapist by trade but I'm also a published author (murder mysteries currently but expanding all over the place). I'm hoping to help out with the Lore as well as any play-testing. I have a lot of time in Quality Inspection so I know how to look for flaws in things. CoH had so many great ideas but so many things were badly implemented or cast by the wayside. I'm hoping we can take what was good and make it better.

I remember when Star Wars was cool...a long, long time ago...

Ran virtually solo for a while, we eventually started a SG on Freedom and Coalitioned with Starborn and his groups. At our peak we were in the top 10 on freedom. Im currently working on my BS/MS degree for a medical related field. I dont have much in the way of computer tech skills, but im more than willing to provide any and all support to other members and the growing process of this site/game. I can help with anything from Forum assistance (former moderator of two heavy active user car forums), i know how to upload pics to typical MEDIA outlets such as twitter/instagram/facebook (HAHAHAHA).

Hi guys! I'm Demon Cat or DK for short. I was on Virtue since 2004 under the handle @ Demon Kats, but since I was so young then, I never managed to make a name for myself before the end. I hung out on the Cape Radio global channel frequently, though. I'm currently studying Criminal Justice at Arizona State University and hopefully pursuing a minor in Drawing. I enjoy writing as well, but I'm not so sure how good I am at either drawing nor creative writing. However, I'm interested to see how I can spin my characters' stories in Titan City to make it fit what I previously developed. :)

Hello Everyone,

Hello Everyone,
I played COH since beta and until the end, with a few breaks in between. I started on Triumph, then switched to Liberty and played as Epsilon Project my healing hero. I later made my favorite toon IPO (eng/eng BRUTE). I eventually combined my toons into the Virtue server and joinedthe villain group T.H.U.G.S. Had lotsa fun playing COH and I was so sad when they closed it, was crazy the game seemed like it was going so well. They were making cool stuff and I thought their subscription model was the best out there imo. Any way just saying wassup and a shoutout to Kemphler/Travern I remember you from playing COH had lotsa fun hanging with you the few times we did. Hoping the projesct is a major success to show that such a good thing can live again

I've played CoH on and off since release, for a total subscribed time of about 5 years. My main server was triumph until the AE nerf killed it. I played freedom for the next few years and was on beta on shutdown. I don't know what else to say :) i want to support the kickstarter however i can, although i may not be able to at all. I mainly follow the phoenix project, however i try to watch and participate in the other successors as well.

Hi everybody! I grew up with City of Heroes, buying (begged my parents to buy) it on impulse when I was eleven or so, just after its release. I never stayed focused on any character for too long (I don't think I even made it to level 40, yeesh), but I played mostly on Protector and Infinity. Here's hoping that TPP is an outrageous success!

Hi everyone. I got COH for

Hi everyone. I got COH for my 50th birthday in 2006 and played until 2008 or so. I was never able to get my wife interested in it. But she was talked into playing D&D Online and later WOW and was really into those. So I moved most of my gaming time to those games in the interest of doing something with her. I went back to COH from time to time, but never for very long. I mostly played solo, but my main toons were Mindbane, Nightshade, Polychromatic Hero, and at Christmas time, Hog Father.

The wife was out of town for a few weeks not long ago and I thought I would spend some time catching up in COH. I was kinda shocked to see it had gone dark. Looking forward to supporting this project.

Another CoX vet (2004 release until the event that needs not be named). Was several heroes and then Insatiable (Fire/Kin Corr) once CoV released (among others) on Freedom server and part of the prior set of forums for this project. Very much looking forward to seeing this project come to fruition and seeing the Kick Starter.

I'm AriiMoose, formerly known as ReclusesPhantom on the old CoH forums. I started playing shortly after the launch of City of Villains (i7 to be precise) and quickly made myself comfortable over on the Union server. I was a terrible altoholic, but the characters I always kept coming back to were Recluse's Phantom and a variety of other redside alts. When I occasionally left the Rogue Isles I usually played Aristocras, or did some RP with Ava Sixx.

Right now I've been playing a lot of League of Legends and Warframe to tide me over. Can't wait to hopefully see some familiar faces around!

Justice Blues on Virtue, started on Launch Day because I didn't find out about COH until it was too late to get into Beta. But I took a sick day from work, drove 30 miles to the nearest game store to buy it, then went home and had a blast. Had a paid account and played until they threw us off. Didn't get to play the final day because I was on the road, but was there in my thoughts.

Those who know me from CoH call me "Harvester", aka @HarvesterOfEyes in global. I started a couple days after launch on Protector. Around Issue 7 my corps of friends moved to Freedom (before there were character transfers) and I haunted that server until the bitter end.

I have a lot of SWE experience (esp test and debug), but I am most interested in contributing to the music for this project.

Guess I can toss my name in here...

I was (and appear to remain) @ClaveDark5 on the forums, in-game and elsewhere. I was playing CoH since about 2006 (just after villains got their 50th level material I figure, i6 or so, right?), mainly at night/early morning and on Virtue and Freedom. Redside too.

I still miss the game when someone mentioned their build or I get another idea for a new character... or I think about playing one of my few characters that I actually took to 50 and got an awesome build for (namesake stalker-tank, how I miss you!). It may come as no surprise I only had 5 fifties when the game went down, but something like 50 characters. Nowadays I'm channeling my new ideas into writing some stuff for our new game here, so I'm REALLY hoping we can get it done, and I have faith we can.

I never really got a chance to form a long-lasting friendship within the game, but I feel like every single one of you out there -could- have been one and still may be. I PUGed a lot and therefore may have unknowingly PUGed with -you- (and hope I didn't annoy or let you down, ha ha), so, it only makes sense I include you all in this: really glad to meet you again, let's make an awesome game here.

Hi, name's Black Arachnia. I

Hi, name's Black Arachnia. I was a long time player of CoH, I actually started playing the game at launch, but took time off for another MMO on occasion. I was relatively active in the forums as well. I have been trying to follow this project, and H&V, and I wish you both luck. My wife and I miss CoH, and we are looking forward to who ever comes out first. I hope it is you, as does she. She works at Apple now, and she owns a Mac. Your support of the Mac means she is more willing to help fund the kickstarter as well.

I am not a programmer, I am a player, but, I will offer my opinions at times, and be quiet and lurk in my web at others, That is it for now. Thank you, and happy to be here.

I've put off joining here for too long; it's good to see the old names and faces again.

I have gamed off and on for years but got in on CoX sometime in 2005 and was there for nearly four years. Longest I've stuck with any game. Played on every server I could but most of my time was on Virtue and Freedom. My favorite lvl50's were Raggamuffin (fire/fire Blaster), Tomboy Jo (SS Tank), Arcane Wasp (claws/regen Scrapper), Storm in a Teacup (energy/energy Blaster) I must've had about forty toons scattered amongst the servers. Some of the best virtual time I've ever had was on that game... I forgot how much I missed it until I found The Phoenix Project. You've all reminded how much fun it was to meet and play with other people from all over. Funny how such a simple thing can have such a meaningful memory.

I look forward to seeing all that MWM can bring! And kickin some ass in a whole new world with all of you!

Hi, Cats and Kittens!

It is I, Amerikatt, the Imp of Impervium, vanquisher of Naughty Spawns everywhere -- particularly on the Virtue server (where they seemed to congregate like the vermin they were)! For four years, my sidekicks and I protected Primal Earth from inter-dimensional and inter-galactic invasion (as well as lots of other nastiness best not related to those who may have a queasy stomach)!

My greatest shame is not being able to stop a brobdingnagian asteroid from striking and destroying Galaxy City. I guess I shouldn't really blame myself, since Statesguy was assisting me at the time, but I have always felt that with great power comes great responsibility. I also feel responsible for not stopping the Dreaded Draconians who finally managed to destroy my beloved world. I hope that I will be able to redeem myself in the eyes of Primal Earth's survivors (and in my own eyes) by protecting Titan Earth more efficiently.

This is Amerikatt signing off. Good night and good noms!

Hello Everyone! My name is

Hello Everyone! My name is Jes, aka Nosteny, and I played CoX on and off since 2005. My home was on Liberty, but I did play on other servers with the many alts I created. My first character was Nosteny, a dark defender, and my first to get to 50. I had many others, but she was always my favorite.

City of Heroes was the first MMO I called home. It was the only game where I felt comfortable going in and chatting with random strangers. It has been the only game where I didn't mind joining a PUG, waiting in the Hollows for a group to help keep each other alive while we fought trolls and CoT together. Celebrating when we finally reached lvl 14 and could finally travel quickly across the map. I made new friends through my many random team-ups, who then introduced me to their friends. I couldn't keep all of this fun to my self, and eventually talked friends and family to join in as well. This led to many memories created that I will never forget. By the time I learned that CoH would be no more, I had brought my children in to play with my husband and myself, creating a fun family night running around in matching spandex.

I saw the game change through out the years, in some ways good and other ways maybe not so much. I would leave for a little bit, either due to money or boredom, but I would always miss it and come back enjoying it even more. It was a game I was truly sad to see go. I tried to find a replacement, but with no luck. That is until I did a search and came across this here. I've been watching ever since (like a creepy stalker hehe) keeping an eye on development and waiting for the kickstarter to launch. I figured I should probably join in and say my hellos. I'm so excited that so many others felt the same way I did about a game, that they would come together and work so hard to give us all a new home. Thank You

Didn't realize I was so heartsick for Paragon City until I watched the Kickstarter video and found myself in tears. I was primarily a Guardian denizen until I made a retrospectively bad move over to Virtue. Kind of scared to introduce myself because of burned bridges, but I'm going to embrace the Phoenix metaphor with a new name. :) So very happy to be with all of you now.

I came back two years later and introduced the woman who became my wife to the game. While we dabbled in other games, CoH was our home, and we had amazing times with some amazing friends.

In real life, I'm an IT support minion and father of two. I'm currently playing AoC with short stints in TSW. I didn't love CO and my wife doesn't like DCUO, so I can't wait for a super hero MMO we both want to play!

I'm really lazy, so I'm just going to repost what I said in the European Lounge because, hey, we're all one big happy family here right? Either way, glad to find these forums and very impressed with what's been achieved so far. Currently wondering if there's anything I can do to help so I may keep an eye out for appeals for help later down the line.

---------------------------------------------------

Hi all, pleasure to be here and all that.

I arrived in City of Heroes around Issue 6 and stayed right up until the shutdown at the end. During that time I made about 200 alts, gained 7 '50s' and met a lot of groovy friends. I attended the EU player meet several times and infamously lost a bet to dance down the streets of Birmingham with my underpants on my head when someone from NCSoft actually bothered to turn up. I helped to set up and run The Militia, possibly the longest running RP Supergroup in the UK which is still sort of running even though we've moved onto new games.

Currently I play The Secret World a lot with a bit of Neverwinter thrown in at times. I am a writer currently editing my first novel which was certainly inspired by some of the characters I created in City of Heroes. I saw the Kickstarter campaign begin and decided that I would overcome my usual skepticism and come join the party given the amazing work that the people here have done in one year. Hope to see you all in the new city. :)

Hello, world!

Hello, world!

I'm Buxley and played City of Heroes and City of Villain since issues 6, i.e. when COV went live. Although I bounced around a few servers, my primary server for the last few years was Justice. I always suffered from chronic alt-itis (Judgen Jury and Cheshire Kate were both me) but the character I played almost exclusively the last six months was a DP blaster by the name of Browncoat.

I miss all of 'em. =)

Best of luck to the Phoenix Project on their Kickstarter; I'm certainly be donating once I pick a donation level. =)

Hey everyone. My name is Antihiro.

I started playing CoX in 2004 and played right up until the end (mostly). My main was Krar, a Stone/Stone tank, on the Virtue server.

Looking forward to everything coming up with CoT. Can't wait to meet you all in-game and see some old friends!

Hey all! I'm

Hey all! I'm mistformsquirrel AKA Yumii, I played primarily on Pinnacle then Guardian and was a proud member of the Legion of Catgirls SG. I started playing roughly a month after release - before you could even change your costume < ._.> I played pretty intensely for about three years, then on and off for the rest of the life of the game. Needless to say I was pretty upset when I heard about the closure - and also quite excited when I heard about the Phoenix Project <^,^>

Hrm what else is pertinent... I'm an artist, not that good of one, but still, it's my main non gaming hobby alongside writing.

There's really not much more to it than that. I miss COH and I miss a lot of the awesome folks I got to play with and got to know, especially the folks from the art forum.

At any rate, I've already pledged to the KS, and it's looking good so - I'm hoping this all works out. Hope to see you all in the new city someday!

I am Gangrel.

I am Gangrel.

I started playing City of Heroes soon after EU launch, and although I took long breaks, the game still held a place in my heart (contrary to how I might come across in several posts). Been a DJ for a few of the EU CoX stations over the years (Last Stand Radio, Evolution Radio, Titan Gaming Radio), as well as a couple of other stations (MMO Radio and New Eden Radio).

Like Dante, I have also attended several EU CoX/Ncsoft player meets/get togethers, as well as help organise a few more recent ones (i am the silent but deadly support).

Other stuff?

Oh yeah, I also ran a set of forums for Tabula Rasa, which probably explains why I am not going to dedicate over 80 hours a week of my life again to the job (honestly, it was a *lot* of work)

And I enjoy hitting people with latex whilst wearing lots of leather (aka I do Live Action Roleplay/Live Roleplay depending on how you want to term it)

Hey all - I'm Merseine on the Titan forums. My global on CoX was LadyMalachite (see avatar pic). Mostly played on Pinnacle (though alt-itis set in so I had to spread the love to a few other servers too), 8 year vet...am very cautiously optimistic about stuff here...just am not wanting my heart smashed again. So...to prevent that smashing, I'm gonna dive in and see what I can do to help. Don't know if that makes sense, but that's what's on my brain right now. Looks like the Kickstarter has started well. *crosses fingers*

Hi, Cats and Kittens!
It is I, Amerikatt, the Imp of Impervium, vanquisher of Naughty Spawns everywhere -- particularly on the Virtue server (where they seemed to congregate like the vermin they were)! For four years, my sidekicks and I protected Primal Earth from inter-dimensional and inter-galactic invasion (as well as lots of other nastiness best not related to those who may have a queasy stomach)!
My greatest shame is not being able to stop a brobdingnagian asteroid from striking and destroying Galaxy City. I guess I shouldn't really blame myself, since Statesguy was assisting me at the time, but I have always felt that with great power comes great responsibility. I also feel responsible for not stopping the Dreaded Draconians who finally managed to destroy my beloved world. I hope that I will be able to redeem myself in the eyes of Primal Earth's survivors (and in my own eyes) by protecting Titan Earth more efficiently.
This is Amerikatt signing off. Good night and good noms!
*salutes*

Well you just gained your first fan This post made me giggle. lol :D

Now that there are more

Now that there are more people I think it's time I reveal who I am in case someone recognizes. As I mentioned, I played my immortal character that wore a trenchcoat shade and wielded a sword. The character's name is Gideon and the name I used in the art forums was Gideon_B. I wanted to start fresh with no other particular reason than the fact other than I wanted to play my character under a new identity which after a few days I decided to make the character I wanted to bring here his twin. Here are pics dunno if it will show but hopefully it does. This if it shows is my original character Gideon. i been wanting to reconnect with some o y old friends fro CoH which is why I came here. The loss of CoH didn't hit me till some time after, and to be honest, I miss it.

Might as well chime in now. I'm Five Iron (formerly @Phillon) of the Infinity server, and Paragon University Archeology Department Super Group, or P.U.A.D. Like you lot, I'm stoked over the announcement and kickstarter for City of Titans. I had held out hope that NCsoft might stop being a bag of jerks and release the IP. Clearly, that won't happen. Glad to see the community pulled a Bender and said, "Fine, we'll make our own game..."

Here's to the future everyone,
/e salute,
