Not well, to tell the truth. To be honest, CoX was my first re-introduction to semi-normal society after I got out of Iraq.
I served for fifteen months as a machine gunner. Aiming at other humans and pulling the trigger was a fact of life. When I got out of Iraq, I was, well, not quite hitting on all eight cylinders, if you know what I mean. Hardly a functioning human being. CoX was easy - I could play it from my barracks room, where I was comfortable. I didn't have to go out in public, where I'd spend more time instinctively scanning for targets and feeling naked for my lack of body armor.
CoX helped me more than I can effectively articulate as I struggled to make the transition from professional killing machine to human again. Just simply interacting with people through a non-threatening medium where I didn't have to deal with the other glitches, twitches and bugs I had picked up while being shot at in a hostile environment for over a year of my life.
I'm still not quite right, and its been nearly five years, but I'm at least functional in the civilian sector these days, and I credit CoX and the community a lot with helping me through that difficult time. Now that its gone, I'm not quite sure what to do with myself. I still don't like going out in public.
I suppose I'm moving on to STO finally. I got the lifetime subscription, being a lifelong Trekkie, when it first came out, but that subscription sat ignored until very recently. Despite not really being a comic book fan, CoX captured my attention, my imagination, and the friends I made are irreplaceable.
Although if CoX2 comes out, I think my starships are going to go back to gathering dust in a drydock again.
