    Well, the guys that were running the paragon chat managed to open a server thanks to the leak of the CoH source code. Meaning the game is fully playable right now.
    They seem to be having a lot of problems with the login server, and because of how overloaded the game is with players (over 5000 right now). The game is bugging out, but its working.
    You can get all the info in their discord

    Anyway, the game is great and im expecting a bunch of codexers to join me in the servers eventually. We could make our own guild and base, raid together and have a ton of fun.

    Found some mega link that's 160 megabytes. It's got an .exe that doesn't launch. Nobody on the server is willing to answer any questions. Frankly, I tried, I've read various channels and their reddit. No info. Fuck this game.

    Alright, so I found it. You go into their #updates channel and scroll up for like 10 seconds straight and you'll find download links.

    When I launch score.exe, the game goes to the loading screen and then crashes to desktop with no visible errors. That's it for me, I guess.

    Read the pins on the discord channel. You need to download Tequila, then make a forum account and within the forum make a game account for login. And then hope that the server isn't overloaded to hell and back.

    You have to use the tequila executable.

    It should be in your coh folder.

    Dont bother with trying to login right now, the servers are exploding. This is just a test anyway. Trying to find people to form a guild later on.

    As for the gameplay, nope. not wow at all.

    - You play a hero/villain in a semi open world with tons of huge areas. You go wherever you want and do whatever you want. There are pvp areas and they have their own rewards, like especial limited usage skills. You do quests in those areas and if you run into enemies, well, defend yourself.

    - There are no classes really, your character is entirely customizable and can pretty much be anything you want. You pick an archetype, then two powersets from a fairly big number, then you customize your character to look like whatever kind of clown you are into. You can even customize the sfx of your skills.

    - The game has an aligment system, you can be hero, villain, rogue or vigilante. You get access to some different areas depending on that, and some of the same. There are places where you can be social, like clubs and shit, they also have minigames with rewards.

    - You can build your own guild base, huge places where you can store shit, and get gear/buffs.

    - Every skill you have has slots, how many slots depends on your choices at level up. Each slot can be used up with an augment that will increase an aspect of said skill. There are also craftable augments that increase many parts of the skill in smaller increments, or grant unique effects, and also sets, by having several of those aguments you will get special effects. There are also raid augments which are really strong.

    - Past cap there are other ways to make your character better, like new superpowers and shit you can get.

    - Consumables cannot be stored infinitely, you have like 16 slots, so in any given adventure you can be shit out of luck if you use them all and arent finished, which makes for an interesting way of preparing yourself. These consumables can be bought in lesser versions, dropped in average versions or gotten in the stronger versions through some mechanics i never looked into. Meaning what consumables you have at any given time is kinda up to luck and what you decided to keep and use. Its a great mechanic that gives weight to your decisions on how to tackle enemies.


    Overall is one of those unique games with great mechanics that everyone that loves rpgs should play at least once to understand them. Other than that the community is nice, people actually talk instead of farming like retards, and the game accomodates for a more relaxed gameplay.

    city of heroes was the original good super hero mmorpg what every other one failed to copy. Kind of like how dark age of camelot was the good tab target pvp mmorpg and the rest were shitty.

    OH/OV were great games. However I always felt I couldn't create a build I'd enjoy playing and properly scratched that strategy side.
    You couldn't really solo and grow fast at same time. This is arguably got resolved by the AE DLC/expansion. AS you only needed to team up for a short time before you were leveled up in reach of a good power selection.

    But folks this brought holodecks/simualtions into the game. Are you really playing a game anymore if you spend more time in a simulation than playing the game? Because for this to happen for even a couple days of real time,
    means you both played and didn't play the game as part of the game. TRust me when I say I have never seen so many supposed humans act like NPCs doing this shit. WE became the NPCs.

    All these screenshots are about 15 years old.

    When CoH came out, I was crazy about Aikido, so tried to create something appropriate:
    [​IMG]

    Also tried to make Aikido's Founder, Morihei Ueshiba:
    [​IMG]

    I also created a Terminator 2 character:

    (someone got my Michael Savage reference in chat, yay!)
    [​IMG]

    Also made some kind of Tom Cruise-looking guy? He was supposed to be from SOMETHING, but I forgot what.

    I really don't remember the graphics being as shit as that.

    Played it at launch as a dedicated healer (empath iirc) called 'Dr Hippocrates', really enjoyed it until I realised that dedicated healers weren't really needed and rerolled as a blaster. It was fun, but all you did was moved from group to group and mowed them down, at least when I played. Was a really shallow game that was fun in small doses.

    May have changed later on. I know I tried to get into it again before it got shut down but the magic had gone. Can't see myself going back.

    It had a unique atmosphere. I really liked a lot of it. It did have that superhero feeling that no other game did.

    Along with other great mmos I keep this thing in mind when I develop my own projects. A big part of the beginning areas were something called Gangs. AAAh the immersion of their sweet little dialog and citizens running away.

    Cool, I might try it out when it's stable. I heard of this game's existence when they announced they are shutting down the servers, which is a shame.
