Had great fun with that game. Sad news to see something go, even if it's just a game, but it's not like you can boot it up in a years time to have a shot like you can with the good old classic games.

Sad to see it go, worse to see a pretty groundbreaking studio close though

Logged so many hours in that game but I'd have thought it was tailor made for a free to play micro-transaction model given all the costume and power customisations on offer. Guess not, or it was too old to be properly adapted.

Logged my main character out for the last time a while ago. He will forever rest between the gigantic breasts of the Galaxy Girl statue. Seemed fitting at the time

DC Universe Online or Champions Online, wonder where the players will migrate to?

Just wanted to add my personal thoughts on this topic.

Shame it's closing and people are losing their jobs

I had some great times and have fond memories of the game (apart from the fookin grind of course).

In particular the character creation tool was brilliant

I will also not forget my main toon - Mesmertron and his hero cry of "I've laddered my spandex!".

RIP CoH/CoV.

First off: I AINT'NT DEAD! Moved, had to stop gaming for a bit, no real internet, but got a new graphics card recently and I'm back online!

Second: CoX is back!

https://www.reddit.com/r/Cityofheroes/comments/bgv9ju/coh_official_discord_announcement/

We'll see how long it lasts... but I forgot how much fun the game is. I've registered Fight Club as a Supergroup on the Hero side and Fight Club Villains (wouldn't let me use FC even though no-one was showing as having it) for the bad guys if anyone wants to fart around in it again. I know it's an old game but... it's free! And superheroes! And BAM! ZAP! POW! KABLAM!

The Mighty Mesmertron might come back out of retirement
