Looking at this guy's other tweets, I highly doubt this is legit. He's trolling us.

I wag my finger at you for calling this news. We have eyes and ears here that would know better the specifics of CoH being sold.

The guy only has eleven tweets total, most of them sounding like your typical slack-jawed CoD pubby.  I fail to see how this guy would somehow be aware of the purchase of CoH when a whole forum of rabid fans of the game, including some very, very intelligent and well-connected people, have not.

Unless he can provide some further info, I'm calling this guy's tweet a pile of unicorn doo.

Unicorn poo is at least sparkly.

Don't insult unicorn poo.

Unicorn doo is the most sinister of all doo, precisely for that reason.

Most doo is innocuous, matte, and earthen-colored.  Aside from sometimes being particularly... 'fragrant', it doesn't actively do much to offend the senses.  It generally isn't a problem so long as it's not directly in your path and you wind up stepping in it as a result.

Unicorn doo, however, sparkles and is brightly colored.  You might mistake it for clay, until the odor hits you (which is a whole 'nother kind of pungent).  You can't ignore it visually, either, unless it's in a very dark place.

As a result, I think my comparison is quite apt.  This tweet is something that at first seems really appealing and shiny. Then you examine it a little closer and realize you're scrutinizing a pile of dung.

I rest my case.

Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

Taking exception with your note of dark places aiding in failing to detect (anyone with an advanced degree in Arcane Biology would know unicorn poop glows) I concede to your point.

Still curious about this, the fact that it doesn't fit his other few tweets makes it even more odd. Stranger things have happened, maybe his Dad works for a company in the know? Anyone tried contacting him?

Edit: sent a reply tweet, will post results. Not expecting anything, but why not try.

Haha!  Yeah.  This.

Just ignore the trolls.  I still harbor a secret dream that Valve will bust into NCSoft and somehow convince them to sell COH someday....but outside of that, we do have dreams of a compatible server to keep us going.  Let's not forget that, nor the people who tirelessly work on that as well.  Thanks, unsung heroes!

This thread should really be renamed. I got really excited in the split second between clicking on this and viewing its contents.

For the sake of the community: please stop the cultural "research" in your attempt to put blame on the game's cancelation.

It's sickening to see the community sink that low. It's worse to see the community does not get it.

I'm signing off and taking a break, blindly hope things change.

Until I can sign in and get back to my corner of Atlas Park.... I'll refrain from squee.
As long as somebody keeps making up stories for it, the City isn't gone.
