Things seem safe on the Homecoming servers, as well as the other private CoH servers, and I plan to continue playing on them for a long time.I would put zero weight in Homecoming's 'negotiations' to purchase the CoH IP. There has not been any real progress IMO (saying that the negotiation process has been 'good' and 'profitable' does not count; where's the beef?) towards a purchase. Once they can list some details that actually indicate progress, then I'll believe them. I don't buy the line that NCsoft is being ultra secretive. The people that attempted to purchase the IP in 2012 were very forthright about what they were doing and who they were talking to. And they also listed the setbacks and ultimate failures. So I think if there has been real progress, they would have at least a few details to tell us.I am quite sure that NCsoft is writing off the IP, and could care less if someone is using it as long as whoever is using the IP does not try to claim it. Once the write-off is complete (I know nothing about Korean law, but in the US this process takes 14 years to complete) then we will likely see a sale, since it has been proven once again that enough people are interested in playing that a profit is easily makeable.
