Over Labor Day Weekend, our repository server gained sentience and walked away.

It's back and said it just went for a walkabout and didn't mean to cause any distress. What is interesting though, is it will neither confirm nor deny the existence of these "motorheads" we've heard about.

Thank you all for your concern, and batteries.

The motherboard manufacturer sent a replacement part and we have put the repository server back together. We are back up and running and will now continue our regularly scheduled programming. (please pardon the pun)

Remembering your old CoH/CoV characters

After thinking just a little

After thinking just a little on it, I might actually try to focus on some original creations for City of Titans first. as a friend's pointed out to me, a lot of old characters will have their stories said and done, even if it only happened in my head after City's closing.

Though if I do bring back some, I'm probably going to aim for a fresh angle on them instead of what I've done repeatedly.

There is a song I hear, a melody from the past.
When I woke for the first time, when I slept for the last.
You are the one, the hero who will stand.
Do not blame father, he is only a man.

I agree with this. I recently

I agree with this. I recently read a bio here that was made for a character with the exact same name I used for my staple character in COH. Honestly I liked the bio I read here better than my old character. I think I will be reinventing some but mostly creating entirely new ones.

Most, if not all, of my old characters are receiving this treatment.

Kinda like how the ultimate universe do. I did this also for when I moved some of them to Champions Online.

I had a few mains that I

I had a few mains that I stuck with after a million alts. Started off as a villain on Victory, then hero. Then moved to Freedom after a couple years.

Heroes:

.Foresight-(#1 main) Mind/Time controller

.Avalanche-(my profile picture) Earth/Storm controller

.Warewolf (all variations of Werewolf were taken-don't judge)-Claws/Regen scrapper. I used a macro to switch costume, do an emote and activate one of my regen toggles in missions to transform into a werewolf. Everyone always got a kick out of that.

Villains:

Seiji Amida- NInja/Poison Mastermind. I hope we get even half as much pet controls in this game as we did in CoV. Best pet class I've ever seen in an MMO since then.

.Sorceress- Mind/Electricity Assault

I think the day before CoT

I think the day before CoT launches, not just the chargen but the full release game you can play, I'm going to go on Paragon Chat and run around CoH one last time. For a few reasons. I want to get back in the spirit of the game and take that to CoT. One final goodbye; I probably won't even log back in to Paragon Chat if CoT is a success, that is a coffin that needs to be closed and buried finally. And to see the, likely, stark contrast between the old game and the new one. I'd liken it to the difference between Diablo and Diablo III graphics. That should make jumping into CoT for the first time the best possible experience.

Compulsively clicking the refresh button until the next update.

Thinking about our CoT characters like "Ultimates" versions of our CoH characters is actually a great perspective.

I've been wanting to change my main hero's (Altruist) name for awhile simply because it doesn't feel like a superhero name. I'm leaning toward Centauri, but I'm afraid of changing the name that has been my moniker in superhero games since 2003.

City of Heroes:
Altruist, lvl 50 Invul/SS Tank
Ellodie, lvl 50 WP/Fire Tank
Omega Centauri, lvl 50 SS/Invul Brute
Project Carnivore, lvl 50 Claws/Regen Scrapper
Guardian, lvl 50 PB
Marc Century, lvl 50 Invul/EM Tank

Why not have more than one "main" character? Make both an 'Altruist' and 'Centauri' and play them as much as you want.

I'm not really saying this to be flip or "silly". Back in CoH I ended up with a total of around 40ish alts. But out of those 40 I had like 4 (or maybe 5) characters that I played far more often than any of the others. I basically considered that top group my "mains" (plural).
