This has been an entertaining few days.

Understatement.

My outsider understanding is that the character database has account names, but no other information. So if you remember your login account name and/or your global handle, your characters can be found.

Most of my account names since CoH shut down have been the name of my favorite character, but what my CoH account names was...oh wait...I think I remember.

Ultimately it does not really matter to me if someone else is playing a dupe of one of my characters. That would really be a form of flattery, no?

I think that it might have caused a few whiplash injuries from the various and frequent changes of opinions.

I'd be lying if I claimed that the past few days have not severely tested my opinions on whether the "CoH Community" is actually a "community" at all.

In other news, it appears that Pohsyb put in an appearance this morning on the Discord and offered to be available for advice.

Download discord.

Type in City of Heroes
Go to the admin and ask to be added to chat if you are a coder - only approved list of people can get in there but anyone can read what they are doing. It is cool to see how quickly the work is done and the changes being made.

On discord now and reading. I'm just a systems analyst, college dropout with no certs. Reading through the build-compile-discussion, I'm under qualified.

It's always been a community. But now the community finally has the tools to play the game that were previously kept from them by people outside the community for their own enjoyment.

It's always been a diverse community, but that's also been its strength - with the amount of love that people had - and still have - for the game, this was inevitable one day.

Bold move. But I think the right one.

Thank you.

The thread title should help get villain players back in the swing of things, as it totally ignores the red side :P

I believe the character data is from i24 - not sure when. Since they kicked everyone out a couple months prior to shutdown - I would think new characters built after the shutdown announcement might not be there.

But not knowing the time period of when the image was made - no clue except i24.

Then that means about 98% of my alts should be intact.

Question: since alts were scattered among the servers and some people liked to have the same name on each server.... is it safe to presume that names will be unique and that we may all have some name adjustments to make? :)

The boldest of bold moves is the fact that if they have access to the complete code, then at least one of the Paragon devs did the right thing before the shutdown.

I know that names are obviously important, but they're overshadowed by the fact that the community might be able to actually play the game again - I don't even think that too many people would be bothered if they had to level up again.

NCSoft did that when they "merged" City of Villains into the same product years back.  Don't blame me.

To clear things up a bit - a lot of the questions about what source code and so on are intentionally vague.

No one wants there to be a chance to back track and find out who did what.

Servers soon - will magically appear thanks to Nemesis plots to destroy the world being foiled. Let's stick with that plan.

Nemesis snapped his fingers - time to undo the snap.

Hear, hear!  As always let's avoid discussing that which should not be discussed.
And be happy that it appears to be returning our city!
