So I have been playing City of Heroes as my main MMO for a few days now. I created a hero name Skelet who is a ex-wizard and a tank instead of a healer. I have been rescuing citizens of Atlas Park and I have hit lvl 10. I think CoH may be the best MMO I have ever played with a friendly community, a great story, and amazing lore for the world. I loving just walking around Atlas Park and hearing NPC's about a meteorite that crashed in a nearby town just waiting to deal with that down the line.
The only problem is that I know their will never be new content for City of Heroes. I have come in at a good time since the servers are full but at a bad time because the game isn't been worked on anymore. Massively OP did an article that said that they hope that new story content comes to City of Heroes at some point but I don't even know if the community would be for it. It would be like adding story content to Vanilla WoW. Its fanfic at that point and their is no guarantee the story they tell will live up to CoH. I know people on these forums are saying that CoH is around that Ship of Heroes of City of Titans doesn't need to exist anymore but I feel the exact opposite. When I play CoH I enjoy my time with the game immensely and when I log off I think about what I will be experiencing tomorrow but while I am playing I just can't help but wish that SoH or CoT was already upon us or already here. At least then I would know that the game would be getting content updates, hopefully anyway.
After playing CoH I have a newfound appreciation for what SoH and CoT are trying to do and I even put more money down on SoH. I will CoH for the foreseeable future of course. It has gripped by attention but as someone who didn't play the game at launch and doesn't have nostalgia for it I feel like once I get through the content offered I will leave Skelet behind and that breaks my heart.
