It was live for like 11 years or so.  It had a good run.  There's no shame in putting an old dog to rest.

Have you jsut come back from deployment or something ?Because this was pretty big news late last year.The game was still profitable but not profitable enough for NCSoft apparently who wanted to shift resources elsewhere.

Whilst I don't begrudge NCSoft the right to do what it wants with it's IPs,the way they went about it was pretty shitty.The fien folk at paragon found out they were out of a job at the same time as it was announced to the world,at the tiem they were working on the next issue still.

Some of the paragon devs and fans are working on something called the Phoenix Project which is planning a kickstart in Spetember if your interested.

This is what NC soft does with ALL there games once there revenue drops below a set threshhold. This is also why it is not wise to invest any time or money into a game they produce. This is sad because some of there games that were terminated were simply ahead of there time.

Yeah this was a sad situation the story wasn't over or anything. It wasn't really a planned shut down so much as an out of the blue investor closing. NC use to be my favorite mass mmo publisher but they definitely lost a lot of my respect that day.

Favorite MMO ever, Auto Assault...killed by NCsoft

 

Second favorite MMO ever, Tabula Rasa...killed by NCsoft

 

Third favorite MMO ever, City of Heroes...killed my NCsoft

Well from all the financials posted by Paragon CoX was doing fine financially so NCSoft screwing it over was a shock to all. But yes this was major news gaming wise for a number of months.

This is the site of the other "spiritual successor" to CoH.

It's sounding like a loose CoH clone. I hope they realize that and make some adjustments so NCsoft doesn't try to sue them for copyright infringement.

I'm am in by no means a NCSoft fanboy as most of their games do not appeal to me. However I'm pretty sure this isn't just a NCSoft issue. If a company cannot find a way to profit off a game they will shut it down. NCSoft isn't the first company to do this after all and MMO's are business in the end.

PS. Having tried and played Auto-assault and Tabula Rasa I can say with a fact that they were both games that had good premises but horrible execution at launch by the developers who made those games. They died because they were not profitable and were not gaining any subs and thus no publisher or developer would justify pouring money into a product that effectively failed in the marketplace.

Games I've played/tried out:WAR, LOTRO, Tabula Rasa, AoC, EQ1, EQ2, WoW, Vangaurd, FFXI, D&DO, Lineage 2, Saga Of Ryzom, EvE Online, DAoC, Guild Wars,Star Wars Galaxies, Hell Gate London, Auto Assault, Grando Espada ( AKA SoTNW ), Archlord, CoV/H, Star Trek Online, APB, Champions Online, FFXIV, Rift Online, GW2.

Game(s) I Am Currently Playing:

GW2 (+LoL and BF3)

This is the first time I have heard of the new project. I really hope they can pull it together. I miss City of Heroes/Villians. It was probably the MMO I invested the most time in.

All the newer MMO's are trying to think outside the box which is great, but sometimes I miss my old favorites. That is the biggest downside to MMO's is that once they shutdown you basically lose the game forever. Hell I'm sure I have an old pong game still collecting dust somewhere.

I loved City of Heroes. Was in beta, got the special sprint graphic they later gave to anyone anyways, and played for years. I came back quite a few months before the game was canned, and they made a mess of it. The early stages were all refined and quite nice, but the end game was a huge grindy mess. It felt more like work than anything else. I wouldn't be surprised if the publisher/devs noticed that towards end game their retainment rate severely dropped off.

A good end game is not "do this before you can do this so you can go back to do this before doing this part which opens up this part for you so you can complete 1/7 things you need before you can compete in such and such".

CoX was a great game. Played from CoH Beta through CoV Beta up until about 8 mo before it died.

Still have all the physical print CoH Comics (in plastic) they used to send out every month.

I miss being able to log in to my Fire/Fire Blaster and roasting some baddies

Same, long time CoH/CoV player and after it went F2P I played a little less because I didn't feel obligated to spend more time on it due to no sub required.


I miss the game quite a bit, I don't even like DCUO and Champions Online shouldn't even exist.

Actually from the financial reports released by the company its not possible to see CoH was turning a profit. Neither reasonable profits,nor straight profits. So you might stop claiming that.
