Keep NCSoft from shutting down City of Heroes!

    1. Petition by

      Meggan Russell

City of Heroes has been around for years now (around seven), and the community is still strong as ever. On August 31st, Paragon Studios was given the order to cease all operations and start shutting down the game--effective immediately. There was no build up to this order, no press conferences, nothing. The rumor is that the game will be officially shut down November 30th, 2012.

The only ones that seem to want to have City of Heroes shut down is NCSoft themselves. The community isn't ready for this, and neither is the development team; who is getting shoved out into the cold. City of Heroes is not responsible for the loss in NCSoft profits--other games are.

This petition is to stop NCSoft from shutting down the game and let many of its players keep their favorite game going!  The players--and developers--are not prepared to see this game go down.

For more information about what you can do to save this wonderful game, please go to the "We Are Heroes" movement by Titan Network, or the Save CoH twitter!

      Thanks so much for making this such a huge thing! I've been getting a lot of questions and offers of help; unfortunately the change.org site is giving me a bit of trouble, so I can't seem to respond for the time being. I'm working on getting that issue resolved!

      I only discovered this game six months ago but the memories will last a lifetime. Playing with my IRL Friends and discovering SO many combinations of powers and being able to be anyone I want to be and do whatever I want. I could live in the game for hours just messing around.

      It has become a part of my life and now it is gone. My very soul weeps with despair.

      I loved this game and it was what I played after toontown. I heard of this game from a fellow player and have been on coh for most of it's life. We have formed relationships with people and worked with others as a result of this game. Shutting this down is cutting a piece of that link. This is the best mmo for charater creation and has alot of freedom. I remember the first time I flew in the Hollows when i was level 14 back in the day. There was nothing like it ever. It was breathtaking. It is so sad you are destroying something so creative.

      This game has brought my family and friends years of fun. It is something that you can play again and again, make up great characters, role play and just have a blast. It's like social media, but more fun!
