I loved fighting Freakshow only because of the very first time I encountered them.  I had won the battle and had turned to leave when one rezzed right up behind me.  I still beat it but it definitely caused me to soil my armor.  I miss this every day.
If I was a Jedi, there's a 100% chance that I'd use The Force inappropriately.

LOL. The first time I saw a Freak rez I was like "What the f**!"

This game had so many great mob types and looks - I kind of liked the Carnies look the best.

That reminded me of the first time I encountered an ArchnoBot.  It was in a gray cave, probably Steel Canyon, anyway, I don't like spiders, and seeing a giant one crawling towards me, nearly made me scream like a little girl.  And I wasn't running a sonic blaster.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

Arachnos (made me feel like i was a real hero/villain fighting them), Malta (Black Helicopters and robots !), the Gold Brickers were AMAZEING and i wish they had done more with them into the higher levels.
If we set it on fire it'll burn....but that'd leave evidence...I KNOW ! COMPLETE ATOMIZATION! WOOOO!

I remember encountering Red Caps for the first time and one of the enemies threw a person on you. I'm like "Did I saw a little dude hoped on my head and exploded or I'm just seeing things?"

I would take my plant troller  'Hot Pistil' back into Bricks and wipe out Council mobs! It was so much fun to see a Confused mob being crushed by creepers and lashed by my Flytrap  :)



That is a bangin costume.

Anyway, I'll have to go with Malta. Sappers were... you know. My first encounter with a sapper was not a victory. But I loved the stories surrounding them. And giant robots. Then again, the great stories applies to many groups. The CoT as well, they were particularly interesting to me.

I liked CoT. I used to love those Oranbega missions where if you died, they took your body to a prison. Majadi was an archaeologist, so they kinda fit into part of her story.

Yes! CoT had a lot of variety. And the Ornabega maps were full of cool concepts, like the glowing crystals that would heal you, give you endurance or sap your hitpoints depending on their color. And the portals that would spew demons until you destroyed them. I like to solo those with my Illusion Controllers by hitting them with Deceive until they spit out demons that would destroy the portals themselves.

First time I encountered Malta was after a low-level mission in The Hollows. Not sure what level I was, but they were purple none the less.
I put out a broadcast asking for anyone in The Hollows who could spare a few minutes getting rid of the thugs. And sure enough a couple of people showed up and made quick work of the mobs.

Yeah Carnies on Peregrine Island, and Circle of Thorns, Devouring Earth, Malta, Nemesis, Rikti.

The family have been getting it from me lately. Funniest encounter so far was when I rounded a corner to see a plus 2 lost lieutenant but didn't see the boss with him. Perma mez ensued. An intervening hospital visit later and I was avenged.
