|As a lot of people in the virtual world already know, On August 31, 2012, NCsoft terminated its Paragon Studios development team, ending all production on City of Heroes with a planned end of services on November 30, 2012. In the process laying off 80+ employees from Paragon Studios.|
Since this announcement there has been a groundswell of positivity and movement from the virtual community in order to save the game. Spearheaded by The Titan Network and leading the charge is TonyV with the battle cry of "We Are Heroes. This is what we do". www.cohtitan.com/forum/index.p…
So why do we fight? Why put up any resistance? It is after all an old game at almost 9 years. And then the argument that it is 'just a game'.
I been playing this game off and on since 2006, it on of my all time favourite and dispite it shortcoming I go back to again and again. People miss TV sitcoms, I fail to see how this is different. It as much part of my life as anything, a dependable Friend that i can turn to when I need to brighten my day by being evil! I have had a subscription to it pretty much since that first day in September of 2006, I have gone back and gotten nearly every extra you can get, spent in total huge amounts of time and money and they are going to close it. Granted it isn't the closing that bothers me so much as they way it being closed.
If anyone Cares please come help us fight.
