April 28, 2014, would have been the 10th Anniversary of the MMO City of Heroes. Sadly, we will never know what wild series of events the Devs would have challenged us players to on that day! Whatever their plans were to be, we know that they would have been EPIC!

As we all continue to try different games in search of a new place to call home, we continue to stay bound as a community watching the spiritual successors (City of Titans, Valiance, and Heroes and Villains) take form. We will once again be fighting side by side! And we will have our "homes"!

Now, Orion STARBOY has written a fantastic article for the 10th Anniversary of City of Heroes. Please take a look via the link below. His article is very well written and definitely worth the read. Pictures included!…

A year has gone by and we still have not been able to return to our home, Paragon City and Rogue Isles. Who would have thought that after a year of us being kicked from our homes, that we would still be so actively hoping and wishing that we will one day be able to return to the place where we shared so much!

The spiritual successors to City of Heroes are starting to show some real promise! City of Titans will be launching before you know it, Valiance Online is currently in their pre-beta stage of development, and Heroes  & Villains is making some really great progress! So check them out...

Thank you all for continuing to share your pieces and collections of your City of Heroes/City of Villains characters with us. We love seeing them!! Please continue to share them in the coming years. And may 2014 be filled with renewed inspiration for your CoX toons to be rendered and shared with the rest of us!

May you all have a very Merry Christmas and a joyous and creative New Year!!

Howdy Folks!!

We have fantastic news!!! DtheCadeyra has brought to our attention the Kickstarter for one of the spiritual successors for the City of Heroes called "The Phoenix Project - City of Titans" being created by Missing Worlds Media.

Check out the below link for detailed information.…

There is more than hope now!!!

Thank you for visiting the official unofficial City of Heroes Group on deviantArt!

City of Heroes was and always will be the World's BEST Superpowered MMO, where thousands of players had crafted superpowered identities for themselves and joined other Hero and Villain characters in the constantly expanding universe of Paragon City and the Rogue Isles ™ to battle a host of foes.

Friday the 13th Contest!
I'm going to draw someone's original character. The most interesting character based on look, originality of concept, etc. (as judged by my brain) will be drawn. Bonus points for being something unique.

Email me at agentfoo(at) with the title "Draw for me!" and attach or link to a reference for your character and a short biography.

I will announce the winner on my DA page next Friday.

Yeah, at times I miss COH too. Right now I'm trying to get my favorite characters sketched and inked (much thanks to the Deviantart members helping me do this, bc I can barely draw a circle without help!) so I can at least put their images on my office wall.

Almost a year and I still miss CoH.

Tried Champions. Trying DCUO.

Nothing compares, though.

It's not just the investment put into the game to tailor it into the experience I wanted (money comes and goes). It's not just the days, weeks, months, maybe even years of my life put into it (I didn't much enjoy anything else available to me at the time). It's not the characters I lost (I never lost them, they're still in my head and soon on paper).

It was the sense of community. Penny Arcade called City of Heroes "People Watching at its Best." Even the newbies who just ground their way up to level 50 through Architect hacking could come up with interesting outfits for their characters, showing that even in their "I gotta win!" mindset was a spark of ingenuity and imagination. We were home to great writers, great minds and great passions...

And now it's so hard to connect with them all.

The only thing that makes me smile about this issue is the schadenfreude I feel when I see that NCSoft's stock still hasn't recovered. They hit their lowest stock price so far since the decision back in February, and have been slowly climbing upward since, but they're still not worth half as much now as they were when they were still running City of Heroes.

I miss the game too. And I too have tried dozens of MMOS hoping to fill the void, but nothing long lasting. We can still keep the spirit strong by holding the memories until we can expect a resuurection or a reincarnation like the Phoenix project.

Long live Paragon/Arachnos.
RolandGrey Featured By Owner Aug 9, 2013
The stuff I hear coming out of the Phoenix Project worries me, though.  The whole thing sounds like a mess of people screaming "It's all about ME!  Recognize me or I'll take the stuff I made and LEAVE!" and nobody with enough backbone to reign them in.

Started out strong...  There's potential...  But I worry.

I'm still hoping for a miracle!
