City of Heroes Isn’t Going Down Without A Fight

NCSoft may have announced that City of Heroes is shutting down on November 30th, but that doesn’t mean the community (or Paragon Studios for that matter) are going down without a fight. Since the announcement, the community has rallied in multiple ways, from encouraging users to write to NCSoft, setting up rallies in-game and on the official forums, and signing petitions to keep the game running. The petition has so far amassed over thirteen thousand signatures.

And Paragon Studios isn’t going down without a fight either. According to a post on the City of Heroes forum:

Alpha Wolf: Sorry guys but I don’t have any new update. I know Paragon management is having discussion with ncsoft and investors. Continue get people to sign online petitions, post on game forums, and just continue to make noises so ncsoft cannot ignore players.

Naturally this isn’t a guarantee that anything will come of the talks, but it offers hope to Paragon’s longstanding community.

  • Thanks a lot for this – right now, noise and awareness are our biggest weapons, and every article like this is invaluable. Of course, organized and dedicated as we are, options a great deal more concrete than merely noise are in the works. But in the meantime, we’re going to put as much bargaining power in the hands of Paragon’s representatives as we can. We’re heroes, and this is what we do.

  • Thank you very much for your coverage of our battle. As Z.N. Singer mentions above me, there’s a dedicated team of heroic volunteers pursuing multiple options.

    Some of the names involved your readers may well know. In true superhero tradition there have been some famous faces under the masks which are being pulled aside at this climatic moment. We heroes have a code about such secrets, of course, so you’ll just have to wonder until they stand up and say “I am Ironman” or maybe more appropriately “I am Spartacus”. (wink)

    We may lose, but if we do it will be with the secure knowledge that we gave it our best. We are heroes. This is what we do.
