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.
