Tony Vazquez's Titan Network is in negotiations with NCSoft about the creation of a community-run legal City of Heroes server. The news came late yesterday after a day of ups and downs for the community as the CoH private server came up over the weekend abruptly went dark. There is no word on when, or if, negotiations with NCS will wrap up, but the community is hopeful that Vazquez's words ring true, "Things are looking positive, so stay strong."
The City of Heroes private server that cropped up late last week after the source code for the "secret CoH" server was publicly released has been shut down. In a note copied to the CoH Reddit, the team behind the server said that it had "to be shut down indefinitely" and that the team is "on a direct course for legal action". As a result, the site and server are gone "to protect the people involved in this project, their families, and their futures". Hop through for a few updates.
