Geekly tears
« on: July 29, 2017, 06:11:36 PM »
I found out that the paragon chat thing and the forum existed a only few days ago, and after all the prerequisite necessities managed to log in today.  I only manage a brief few minutes with the paragon chat before having to log off because i actually started crying seeing it all somewhat functional again.  i know it's not a thing that should affect someone so badly, but a lot of good times were had in the game, and i never expected it to sneak up on me all at once and actually make me cry.

will definitely have to pull my head out of minecraft more often now that i have found somewhere full of people who cared about CoH to talk to once in a while.

Welcome Homeā„¢!

And don't feel bad.  I still cry every time codewalker gets a new feature up and running.  Paragon City was a second home to most of us, so it's only natural to have all the feels.   ;D

True story, no shame in tears. I cried too.

Welcome back!

I was okay until I installed it on my laptop last night and entered for the first time with all the travel powers available.  Took the tram to Talos, went up on invasion hill (and remembered testing the Rikti invasions on the test server, and how the hill seemed like such a natural place to make a stand and fight, and how it ended up always being that way once the invasions went live...), and was fine.  Totally fine.  Then ran down the hill, hit a badge marker, got the "Badge Earned!" noise and text for the first time in almost five years, and lost it.  Almost cried again just telling my wife about it at lunch.

Thankfully, she gets it.

I played this game years ago, paid for it for almost 4 years.  I took some time off to play WoW, but i came back,  I even paid for it after it became free to play, I wanted to participate in the end game raids and have  a lvl 54 charcter. I was 2 months away from a major mile stone. a Veteran reward. that allowed my cool enhancments to become active among other cool things. I had my nemisis lolly pop staff, I miss that thing.  Any how. Im happy to at least be able to run around in the CoH world. Thank you so much for this .  I played on the freedom server. I knew the likes of J-man, ... funny guy, and many others who  left me memories of this fantastic game.

My remembered charcters,   
   Miss Agony - Kat/inv scrapper
   Cambridge -  Ar/Dev Blaster
   Mastrodom - Axe/Fire Tank
   PapaWeeD - Fire/Rad Controller
   Runan -BS/Reg Scrapper
   Papster - Grav/Kin  Controller
Villans.. I dont remember the names of many here.
   IcyInfection  Ice/Rad -Corruptor
                      Fire/Kin -Corrupter
and a cool Brute.. Stone/Fire
