As this my first post on here I would like to say Hello to all COH fans. I have always been a super hero fan since I was a kid and it did not matter on which side of the comic universe they fell, I liked them all. And I still recall the day when I walked into Walmart to buy a new computer game for myself when my eye happen to catch the site of this new game in a nice packaged box with Statesman right there on the front cover. I read that this was unlike any super hero game you have ever saw, and left me intrigued and reading more. Saw that it was $50 plus dollars but I had that much on me and figured what the heck at least it looked like a game that I would love. Took it home and opened the box and started to read but found out that this was a paid subscription game and I must have missed that it said that on the outside of the box, As MMO's were kinda new at that time and I had never had the chance to ever play one so I really did not know what it meant nor did I have the money in which to pay that amount every month.
So I did what most people would try and do and try and return it to get my money back for the game. But as predictable when I took it back to Walmart they informed me that once the package was opened that they could not let me return it. So disappointed I just returned home and figured that was a quick 50 bucks flushed, and stuck it on a shelf to be forgotten. A couple of weeks later I picked it up again just to read the nice book that came with game just to learn a little bit more about the game, but then discovered another little piece of paper that said that you could start the game with a free 3 month subscription and then just cancel or continue on with the paid subscription from there if you wanted to. So I thought to my self why not. Signed up and played my self silly every minute that I had some freed up time. Played out that 3 month free trial and loved the game so much that I found the money every year in which to keep up on the yearly subscriptions, that is until that very disappointing day when we all got the inevitable shutoff that we got.
So when the son told me a few months ago that some private server had got the game back up again and running I was just ecstatic and could not believe my ears what I was hearing. Got It downloaded and started playing non stop ever since. I really don't care that I was not able to get my old characters back, that was then and this is now. Besides I have been able to enjoy just starting over again, learning once again what I really love about the game in the first place is following the story arcs, developing my characters looks and powers and everything else about the game. And who cares if the game is old as the hills and out of dates as some of the newer games on the market. As long as my computer is able to handle it, it fits me perfectly. And now even better now that my son and daughter are older and they have the game on their computers, and with the Discord channel we have set up, it is so unbelievably awesome to be able to play this and do missions and help each other out, at the same just makes my day. Besides I have already surpassed my previous character that I originally had. IGN: EmeraldRain and already at 50+4 with Incarnet powers and only getting better.
I would like to take the time to Thank the people at Homecomming so much for bringing back the game and making it available to all of us to enjoy our good old days we had when we first played this game for the first time.
