So I turn 50 today
« on: June 13, 2017, 03:19:19 PM »
So as I woke up and was figuring how I wanted to spend my birthday, what I really wanted to do was play some COH. Maybe run a TF or fly by some of my favorite locations in IP or AP and possibly run into some friends running a door mission. To make a long story short, I still miss COH and some of my favorite toons likle Cpt. Kaos, Kinetic Rook and MegaMind. I was never a number cruncher and didn't worry about DPS but just enjoyed the chance to team up with like minded folks and kick some street scum. To those of you who I had the pleasure of teaming with, I hope you are doing well and for those of you who i didn't get to meet, well maybe one day we will team up. Thanks for letting me rant and don't give up hope!

Happy Birthday.  I, like you, miss flying around looking at stuff and blowing things up.  This game got me through some very hard times and I'm grateful to the devs and the community for the little bit of distraction and solace available to be in those days.  I look forward to sewer mishes in AP again and enjoy the memories.

Happy Birthday!  Come re-make your toons in Paragon Chat!  At least you can fly around and hang out with us!

Congrats on hitting 50!

I'm right there with you on missing CoX still. My wife and I still talk about the game and our characters and some of the memorable PUGs.

Luckily, it should only take you a year to get that 1 little XP to hit 51.

Time to start doing Incarnate Trials.
One of things i miss most is my whimsically named PB, general incompetence. With his battlecry of "I know what I'm doing!" he only achieved 30 levels of making villains look bad before the shutdown.

Happy B-Day!  I am a little older than you, and I miss the game.  So, if you were worried at all that you were to damned old to be pining away for a video game, I'm here to tell ya...you ain't!  8)

Good job on being a Hero of the City.

I'm a few years away from the Epic Power Pools myself. :)  (Well, ignoring Issue 21 onward.)

A little late here myself but...

Happy birthday.
Currently; Not doing any streaming, found myself with less time available recently.  Still playing starbound periodically, though I am thinking of trying other games.  Don't tell me to play mmohtg's though please :).  Getting back into participating in VO and the successors again to.

HBD, hope you had a good one as with everyone else, missing this game so much! Hopefully one day we'll be back.

50?  You're old.

Some level 1 said that to me as I was hanging out under the Atlas statue in AP with my new level 50.
(ok, some of the details are not exactly correct, but it happened.)
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?
