Rest In Peace, Mighty Saguaro (copied from CoH EU forum post) [20 May 2008|10:04am]
(Original post by PhoenixDragon - I had to pass this along)


This is a sad day for the City of Heroes/Villains Community. One of its finest member’s Mighty, Leader of The Echelon and one of the nicest people we have ever known in this game passed away last Friday due to a blood aneurism.

We extend our condolences to his family and our thoughts go to them through these hard moments.

Mighty was one of finest people in City of Heroes, always pushing the Community forward and doing his best to help people and contributed as much as possible.

Goodbye Mighty was pleasure knowing you and having met you...

Omega Sektor [27 Feb 2008|09:25pm]

Hero roll-call!

I appreciate that this is a generally silent community (being the original creator, I'm more to blame than anyone else of course!) but are any of you going to the Omega Sektor event at Easter?

If so, feel free to add me as an LJ friend before the horror of meeting in-person!

I have been posting pics o my toons on my blog and thought it would be amusing to do the same  here,  just to share aahhhhhh  LOL

BUT before I start I thought I would slap on some links to some resources any CoX player should find useful.

A map of the game:
This site also has downloadable stuff. Of most use is the in-game map that overlays info while you play :) It shows you were badges are, the type o bad guys you can find in each bit of each zone AAANNNNDDDD never get lost in Perez Park again for it will show you the routes beneath the trees  :)  There are also links here to in game badges and where they are, assuming you know the in-game   /loc    command!  Another map at http://paragonmaps.com/ actually shows visually where lots of badges are BUT It is not a complete map and has some badges missing, Vidiot is kept more up to date

On this page there is a Hero Planner (Mids Hero Planner)  Why not post the link to the planner? Because on this link there is also an Excel sheet you can download which can help heaps if you find the Invention Sets all a bit mind boggling. The Hero Planner DOES have IO info but the excel sheet can support this if the planner looks all complicated n stuff.  Redtomax also has LOADS of CoX related info, far too much to go into here!

Heres a couple o links that can be useful to make sure you get the contacts you need.  While they are old and have not been updated that much they still provide a good backbone for basic CoH info  (NB NOT CoV) so if you wondered why you never get Tina McIntyre or Maria Jenkins so you can get the Portal Jockey Accolade...wonder no more!
http://www.cityofheroesonline.com/funthings/contacts/contacts-main.php  Note this one sometimes does not work!  Keep checkin  ;)


Don't forget you can play AND have your NET browser open, just use Alt+Tab to swtich between windows.

K, hope this is of some use.  Will post toon pics soon-ish, just for larfs ha ha ha

Hi all,
I've only just noticed this community so I thought I would drop by.
My main toon is Kendra Hawk an Inv/Mace Tanker on Union.
However I have recently been feeding my altitis by creating my own SG on Defiant for hero toons I wanted to try out.

Aloha! [29 Jul 2007|12:50pm]

[ mood | cheerful ]

Well, it took me a surprisingly long time to find this place, but I thought I'd drop by and say hello.  ^_^  I've recently renewed by CoH account, and have been having fun staying up late to level up.  Man- I;ve missed online gaming!

I think a few of you might have run in to me- my 2 toons are Guide and Pink Champaign. ^_-  I play on Definace.  

Anyway- see you all in the City, then, I guess! ^_^

Screenshot from double XP weekend [25 Jun 2007|02:56pm]

Cross posted to city_of_heroes, so you may read this twice!

Hi folks, just thought I'd pop up a screenshot I took while running around getting double xp a few weekends ago. 19-23, woo!
Oh, first post here, too. I play Apollo. (dot) at Defiant (eu), now a level 26 magic scrapper.
Under hereCollapse )
I understand there's a sneaky way to get text in screenshots?

I hope to be getting the Good vs Evil edition of the game when I get back from a trip on friday. Then I'll be making a tanker alt. Tankers are so cool.
See you 'round!

Welcome Return [30 May 2007|05:31pm]


I've recently reinstalled and renewed my CoH&CoV account, which I am very excited about. However, i've no longer got my lvl 42 Blaster (Moonchild, if anyone ever met me aaages ago), so no cape and no aura *sniff*...and seeing as there's a nice community, would there be anyone interested in a bit of gaming, bit of teaming etc? It's no fun solo or with strangers :p I'll be on the Defiant Server, I think

Hope everyone here is well, and I look forward to at least becoming semi-active here :D

My first post yada yada. [15 May 2007|03:26pm]

Hi i've been playing CoX for about 2 months.

I have a number of Chars.

My main is Dirty Goffic a lvl.26 Claws/Regen

I also have several different alts.

Clasified a lvl.10 Blaster
Medic Bot a lvl.6 Defender

There are others but these are the ones i'm concentrating on at the moment.

I play almost exclusivly on Union (all these chars are on it).

So anyway I have been looking for some folks to go badge hunting with. Particularly with DG as I outlevelled a couple of missions. Any ideas?

I'll be there just for the Saturday but it would be awesome too meet up with some of the community if anyones gonna be there!

Does anyone here read the comics [09 Apr 2007|05:50pm]

[ mood | anxious ]

I know it's probably a little sad, but i enjoy the City Of Heroes comics, they are cheesy and fun.  Anyway, my local Forbidden Planet hasn't had any comics since January, Issue 17.  I just wondered if anyone else had?  I do have it on order there, but they are pretty useless at times.

So has anyone had any issues since then?  At the end of issue 17 it does say there is another issue coming, it stated the title, but i can't remember right now, so i hope it hasn't been discontinued.

Chai - lvl 12 mind control/storm summoning controller

You can usually find me online mainly on the heroes side weekday afternoons, and very occasionally in the evening and weekends.  Be sure to say hi if you see me.

Thunderer! [26 Mar 2007|10:12pm]

Interesting... I've not played for 6 months, just restarted my account, and immediately ran into a Safeguard mission - and am now having great fun flying around with a jetpack on!

Seems to be plenty more to do now!

Hi there. Just started playing CoH and CoV, and I figured this is the community where I should be, although I'm in New Zealand, not the UK. :)

Just here to have fun at the moment (and it shows, my first hero is Dredrick Tatum), but I'm looking forward to meeting people and teaming up and such. Looks like an awesome game so far.

Just one thing... I created Dredrick before I installed CoV, and now some of the options are different... well, the masks, at least, I noticed they're different. And less than heroic, too. Used to have options like facepaint-looking masks, and full masks like Captain America, and now they're the skull, the creepy grin, and so on. Is it supposed to be like that, or am I doing something wrong?

Trial Code [25 Jan 2007|06:08pm]

Does anyone happen to have a free trial code for the european version of the game? A friend wants to give it a go... I would be most grateful and am happy to give out some influence (Union) or infamy (Defiant) in return :)
