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

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,   
Heros..
   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

Like many others, Its hard to put into words just what exactly this does to a person.

The moment I logged into Atlas Park, it ALL came flooding back... almost like I never left. I'd fly or super-jump to the places I used to whip by all the time, or some of my favourite perches where I would take some epic screenshots, or even the small hidey-holes me and some of my friends would just hang out in and talk for what seemed hours.

So many amazing and great memories of this game and the people that made it so.

I'm glad there were people that decided to bring this back to us in the way that they have. Words of gratitude will never be enough.

Oh, and I cried like a baby as well lol

First, welcome, welcome to everyone new to Paragon Chat!   :)

I too was nearly overwhelmed with The Feels when logging into Paragon Chat for the first time, exploring zones and mission maps, and hanging and chatting with other players.  I love the weekly Thursday Night Costume Contests, seasonal player events, the Vigil at the end of November, and the seasonal player events, like the upcoming Halloween Fest.

I love seeing and chatting with other players, checking out their latest costumes, and of course the RP. 

And seeing things brought back like the Ski Chalet, the Winter event perks (snow showers in this and that zone, snowball fights, finding and opening presents, giving gift-boxes to others, and the Jingle Jet!) just makes me want to jump up and down with joy!

So many, many thanks to Codewalker and this team for all the goodness you bring back for us!

I don't blame you! I almost did.
I had stopped playing back in 2007ish with every intention of getting back into it... and then it was gone.
Out of luck, I had taken a bunch of screen shots and began to accurately reconstruct my heroes and villains and for me that's when the nostalgia hit... not from playing the game, but the act of choosing the right belt, the right color of that perfect helmet, goggles up or goggles down? I could remember my thought processes from 12 years ago, and it turns out I didn't need the screen shots after all. I just followed the memories Paragon Chat had unlocked. THEN I got misty :D

I started with ICON, so Paragon Chat was no big surprise.
My first react to ICON was...Holy Smokes, I can FLY!

Then I discovered some of the commands that PC doesn't have, thank goodness, but you could become a NPC.  I turned on fly, pointed down a bit, turned on autorun and become the Gloden Roller.  "Driving" a Rolls around Atlas Park was a hoot.

Now I like to "build" my old toons and run them around Paragon City, in Paragon Chat.
Badges are fun, but somehow I'm not into them as I once was.
By the way, Paragon Chat was very nearly named "Super Fire Dragon's Fun House of Chat", (if only in my mind).
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

I was one of those who came to the game very soon after launch.  I had never played an MMO before, and it was so far removed from the first person shooters I had played up to that point.  I was so consumed with learning how to just get around, and do things in this new world, I did not have the opportunity to really enjoy it until I was a month, or so, into it.  But, after that, there was no turning back!  I was with it until the end, and still miss it terribly.  Though I have played other games in the years since it shut down, I don't really play any of them anymore, and I have more fun badge hunting in Paragon Chat, reminiscing about the good times had with my Supergroup in all the places I explore once more.

Thank goodness for CodeWalker, and his efforts on Paragon Chat, that allows me to keep the memories alive.
