Hey, thanks! Actually, I've posted here before the game launch and such, but now that I've started playing it (my son got it for me at Christmas, bless his heart), I'm official!

Are you still using the pants sign or did you finally air those out and get an official beacon ;)

I wanted to air them out, but the EPA wouldn't allow it...

Geez, I hope not. Of course, I've never understood things like that. I also don't get thinking one server is superior to another, or one high school thinking all the others blow (as I recall, they are all equally Gehenna). And why, oh why, can't Godzilla and Megalon just get along?

Hey Troy. Nice to see you over here.

Unfortunately these boards have just as much drama and hyperbole as the CoX forums do.

I know not all people who play CoX are like that. But from my last days playin over there, just a mention of this game and I would get attacked in any chat channel. I had a great 5 yrs on CoX. It's just over here I don't feel so limited. And I had done it all over there...........numerous times over. Will it get that way here? Probably. I imagine it does on most MMOs. But I don't feel I "owe" CoX anything. Heck they got 5 yrs worth of my monthly subscription! All I know is the vile hatred for this game and Cryptic runs rampant on their forums. And the status you have over there, I would imagine there will be alot of "traitor" and "I cant believe you went over THERE to play!". Even though you still play CoX.

I am glad you are here and giving this game a go. Is it perfect? No. Does it have everything CoX has? No. (CoX has 5yrs worth of content and this game is new). But this game on its own is very fun to me. In fact I would say Champions and City of Heroes is more different than the same. Same super hero themed game...very different play.


Oh just dont let Perfect Pain and Golden Girl know your here. You may not have a butt left!...........LOL

My global is @Grazer.......gimme a shout in game!

Is Love Life still posting on the CoX forums? Her forum avatars used to make me feel all funny inside.

The "traitor" thing is already winding up over there.

By the way. I'll give you a 550 x 217 px guess of who I am, Mr Hickman...

Welcome, Troy, nice to see you here.

I'm a big fan of the CoH comics issues you wrote, and the Story Arc it later became.

Hit me up if you're looking for a good Roleplay super group, with a more casual focus for people with a real life to deal with.

Aye, Rune and I have met in-game and he seems like a great guy, and his group seems to be a really great one. You could do much... much worse. =D

And welcome to CO. If you don't mind a little starting advice, find a good supergroup. Oh, and take things slowly. Very slowly.

Hello Mr. Hickman.

Quick question - when is Twilight Guardian coming out?
( My autographed copy of the pilot issue still sits proudly on my bookshelf .)

Thanks, Rune. I may take you up on that!

And if you enjoyed the arc, you'll probably like the Guest Author arc I did for Architect, which should be out any time now.
