Arachnos flier. I mean come on, it was a giant warship. And it looked badass as well.

Kronos Class Titan, minding your own business either badging or mob clearing in FF to turn a corner and there is this big sodding Titan looking at you  :D

Kronos Titan. My first time through the Crimson arc, I had no idea there was an ambush. I was actually helping a friend through some hunting missions in Crey's Folly when I contacted Crimson. Then...

Me: what the...!?
Titan: Missile Swarm
Me: *faceplant* 

;D

I always enjoyed facing the Titan more. Fighting a giant evil death machine is always a good time.

I'd say the Kronos Titan, especially in terms of what was cooler to fight. The Arachnos fliers are really awesome looking, but they are effectively just super helicopters. And whilst fighting a super helicopter is cool, fighting a super giant robot is cooler :D

I think Kronos was a Right of Passage in CoH.
IMHO - You weren't a real Veteran until you summoned a giant killer robot on yourself, got squished like bug, and in a fit of rage quickly got a team of smirking, chuckling vets to help you exact your revenge.

The Arachnos Flyer...the night I got that badge for that GM was a good night for badge collecting toon. The only time I ever killed that thing outside a Lord Recluse Strike Force. Kronos Titan is a better fight because most times other heroes show up to help. You never saw groups of Villains red side flock to kill the Flyer...ever.

I'll go with the Titan too.
I even read somewhere that one of the devs would become the Kronnos and stalk players for laughes.

I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

The flyer was badass, but a giant killer robot, who wouldn't want one of those?

I agree, there were soooo many rights of passage in the game.
Like getting Vazilok disease.
Or getting killed by a sniper on your way to a mission.
Or forgetting that you were on a team, and opening a present.
Or trying to get to the mission door in the hollows or PI with purles lurking about.

I want the game back, now!
Somebody book in a flight to S. Korea, I got some heads to knock together.

Or getting gang-shanked by a horde of alien monkeys.
Or jumping off the tallest building in Paragon City.
Or kicking enemies clear across the map.  8)

But I never got killed by a sniper...  :o

Or fighting a group of Helions in Atlas Park as a level 2 or 3 and having a level 4 come to "help" you.
Or taking the wrong stinking train in Steel or Sky and mistakenly clicking Talos instead of Atlas, as a level 11
Or getting griefed, (higher level ambush abandoned and you get targetted).
And some good things too
like standing on top of the Atlas Statue
Or getting the beacon for some zone and setting up the telepad for your SG base.
Or getting the 4 accolades in the game, (though not as helpful as they could be)
  • Task Force Commander
  • Atlas Medilon
  • Portal Jockey
  • Freedom Phalanx
Or seeing / hearing something silly like
        Somebody had a toon named "Capt. Color Blind" and he loved to go to the tailor shop just to cause an NPC passerby to say, "Nice threads, Capt. Color Blind".  Now that's high comedy.
Or seeing strange things in-game, like those office workers in City Hall in Atlas park walking up and down invisible stairs in the middle of the lower-level hallway.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?
