Is the game dead?

Post by Bubba Grizz »

No new posts in the forum for over 10 days. Has the game lost its luster?

I <3 COH. Still playing, and so looking forward to capes :D

Now if they would just put in robe bottoms, I would be content.

COH is still going strong... just not to the fickle mush-heads that used to post here. It's a really good game, even for casual players like myself.



I think most of the VV crew quit playing before they got out of the newbie levels.

Well, i dont play a lot, still having fun in EQ, and raiding a lot, but when i got some free time i play CoH once in a while. Still only level 14 though.

But its a fun game to relax to sometimes, even if just flying around.

I took a break, came back and am enjoying it still. I had to get out of the EQ mentality of powerlevel to the end game THEN enjoy yourself.

It's quite fun, but the balance annoys me. AE is all out of whack.

I'm still playing, but I solo almost exclusively.
Oh, my God; I care so little, I almost passed out.

I'm still playing... Level 30 controller, Saroki - if i were to stop dicking around with character creation, I would probably be in my 40s by now. Have a pretty fun little SG going on with some CD and SI members.

Send me tells :)

The 20s has some fun content, great story arcs and nifty new villian groups.


The 30s are great as the leveling model basically requires you to go out and street hunt and team. The missions/arcs at 30/35 can be rather dull.
Rikti, Nemesis and Crey can be pretty challenging.

My only real complaint with the 30s is that besides the sewers, there's limited places to team up for XP at 36+.
I love Eden but the spawns are still fucked up. It's pretty much perma-empty as well. When the rest of my SG get up in that range, I imagine we will hunt there a fair bit... They are currently loving Founders Falls.

i cancelled mine, but due to the fact that with my work schedule, I don't have any time to play.

I really enjoy the game, still.

I plan on checking out CoH again once they release the Villians expansion. I think by then it'll be awesome. Just wasn't enough content to keep me interested at the time when I stopped playing. Well, that and WoW.

Ya, serious balancing is a must if this game will keep my interest.
I just turned immortal and it's only fun for so long.

Insulting Drustwyn is as fun as usual though.

1) The European servers will be up at the end of the year. Asia´s a little bit later.

2) The game will have a different look to it for the Asian market. Culturally they have a different view of what superheroes are. What they look like, where their power comes from, etc.

3) Villains have detonated a bomb that takes out a city block. Revealing an underworld, one that had been sealed up centuries ago, and now that seal is broken. It's new mid-level content. It's called the "Hollow," 5-15th level.

4) The Shadow Shard is a high-level realm. It's called Rularuu and it's a new dimension. It's cool mystery. An expedition goes there and comes back and says, "Guys, there's descendents of the people from Paragon city there, and we don't know how they got there! We better send some heroes over there."

5) In update 3 we will be introduced to non-combat leveling.

So all their powers will radiate from their penises?
