In case anybody cares about a follow up to my post earlier this week about a City of Heroes private server being officially confirmed, in which the entire game & its database was leaked by a former employee before shutting down, this server has been run for roughly 6 years under almost total secrecy with very few being able to access it in order to avoid action from NCSOFT.
A former player of that server decided to leak a bunch of proof of the server and it was later confirmed to be the real deal. Well, after a few more days of drama, and as of like, 20 minutes ago, the owner of that server has released the entire code publicly.
What does this mean for us? Well a few people are now working on getting a public server up & running of City of Heroes.
Will NCSOFT spend their time shutting servers down? Does it really matter now anybody has access to the code? Let's see how this plays out.
Edit: For those interested a test server is now open to the public! Signups here: https://score.savecoh.com/
Currently 1000+ players online, website is crashing. Expect server to crash too.
