Reuniting with old friends

Before CoH was shut down I managed to get some of the contact info from some of the guys I played with over the years. However there were those who I couldn't reach simply because they hadn't been on some time before and after they had announced the game was closing, all the way up to the last night. a lot of those guys were good friends, one was a professor at a university, the other a grandfather raising his grandson and so many more. And it never occurred to us to get one another contact information because we hadn't foreseen this in the nearby future. I can't tell you how frustrating it felt knowing that they would never hear from me again, and for over several many years we had done a lot and became an established team. Just so at the last minute there is no way to get a hold of them, peachy.

The question I wanted to ask, is will there be a way to reunite with those friends who we simply could not get to in time? maybe do servers dedicated to the one back in CoH if there will be a server system like the old one? Or some way to look for old friends, and to encourage it. Maybe an info database where the player can list their old hero names for certain servers to help others look up and say "Hey! I found you!".

I know there will be many new friends made along the way in this new universe that is being created, but that does not make me prepared to move on from my old ones and all the fun we have had throughout the years.

The friends I had were one of the bigger reasons why I loved the game.

Ah, I take it because of copy right issues we won't be able to state our old character names pertaining to CoX on CoT?

Why not? I plan on using the same name I used in CoH!

Right, but what if we used a board that pertains to CoX missed connections, and said these names? I can understand that there will be people with the same names on different games, but I would think that would be unavoidable whereas we are using what NCsoft still owns, for example if we said we are looking for "Bob the BuffGuy" (I don't know if that's a real character) from the Virtue server, then would that be stepping into some legal issues?

As long as you don't claim to go by the name of one of the characters Cryptic or Paragon created and put in the lore of that world, you're pretty safe. I'd just love to see NCSoft try to assert ownership of my characters' names. Talk about a waste of time and effort.

Get yourself right; the world has enough problems.

Could they, yes I believe

Could they, yes I believe that is part of the EULA that they "own" the characters you created in the game. However if they were to actuality try and pull something like that, the fallout would completely ruin themselves as an MMO maker/distributor in any country.

Then the question is would they be stupid enough to try and would we want them to if that would ruin them in a sense? Then again, you said it would ruin them, but what would that do to us if they tried?

I'm pretty sure NC has only non-exclusively licensed our creations.

If i remember correctly, that is the case.

They were totally free to use what we created in the game inside their own publicity/media/whatnot whenever they wanted.

We were however *also* allowed to use our own creations in our own *content* outside of the game as well, as long as they had no reference to Paragon City....

I may be wrong on the last part, but it all depends as to how tightly you wanted to tie your character into their own world(s).

Great, so the point being, if we wanted to create a missed connections board, and we made references to the server that blue man white tights was on, that would be against the EULA?
