Have you tried DCUO? I know it's not CoH, but still a lot of fun.
I feel your pain.. CoH is sorely missed..
Played the spots off that game. Wish there was something its caliber today. DCUO is close but not quite the in the same league.
Is Champions still around? Wasnt AS good as CoH but I enjoyed it enough for a while ... =\
Many of us do miss City of Heroes. ncsoft never listens to their costumers. When you have lots and lots of people begging them to not shut the game down. and they still do it.... The game was making them a profit too. Oh well speaking of DCUO... This game is about to get a hugh revamp, the game will change forever in a few months so maybe its worth taking a peek at the game again when this happens.
The information I've read says the game was indeed still making a profit but it's operational costs were eating it up so badly that it was only a matter of time till the studio would only be breaking even. For whatever reason, NCsoft appeared to "not want" either CoH or Paragon Studios in operation, so rather than green-lighting CoH 2 and reducing the studio's costs to run CoH they allowed it to become unprofitable so they could shut them both down with the fewest questions asked.
The shutdown wasn't just a matter of profitability. There's more to the story and we may never find out the exact motivations of the heads of NCsoft for their actions.
If you can program for the Hero engine, and can spare some of your time on a regular basis, come on over to Heroes and Villains and help us build the next great spiritual successor to City of Heroes. Come help us recreate that old magic and get former players back in the game.
