An important message to the Homecoming Devs


Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I just leveled up my 40th level 50 last night.

 

If HC didn't exist I would not have been able to. It was my biggest pleasure in my adult life to learn that the game I love returned.

 

So despite all the passionate disagreements in various threads in this community, of the last few weeks I have one think to say to the HC devs:

 

Thank You

 

THANK YOU

 

THANK YOU

For bringing back the game we all love. Despite what we might say from time to time we truly appreciate your efforts. That is all.

(Carry on with the usual forums argume--errr, discussions. 😛 )

It really was a Godsend to have this game playable at this time in my life with Covid lockdown restrictions, whatever you want to call it. This was a great distraction, although I have put on some unnecessary girth, I am healthy and happy at home. As I am awaiting my 2nd dose, I will soon be out bike riding again trying to lose this gut that I earned fighting Freaks!

I originally made "Nemeroff" on Live. A male Villain, DM/SR Brute. Now a female Hero then Vigilante.

 

Anyway.

The way I see it this concept, DM/SR Nemeroff, is level 48 ATM and turning 50 will be about (14.5?) years in the making. That's longer than the lifespan of some pets, marriages, jobs/careers, cars, overdue library books, ...

What am I waiting for? It's never a race to 50 and it's the journey not the destination. (And RL, sometimes I can't log in for days.)

 

[The game shut down 10 min ago 😵]

 

Edit: I never got Nemeroff to 50 on Live before shutdown; 46 or 48.

Here here!

Just as an etymological correction, that's "Hear, hear!"; it's a stripped-down form of the exclamation "hear him, hear him", which was a well-established usage in Parliament in the 17th century to draw attention to something someone was saying (there was no 'hear her, hear her' variant, because the phrase had been contracted to "hear, hear" in the 18th century, and the first female MP was not elected until the 20th).

Whoa! My whole life I thought it was "here here," - something like the person doing the exclaiming was drawing attention to themselves, maybe in preparation for further announcement. Thanks!

Agreed. I may argue and complain on the forums, but I'm grateful that the City is back.

 

Thank you Homecoming Team!

If you'd rather be Lame-O the Wonder Clown instead of Homelander then you're playing the wrong game.

 

Thank you doesn't even come close to the gratitude I have for the Homecoming developers for resurrecting Paragon City.

My enjoyment is evident to the Devs by my stats alone, and I am fortunate to contribute in the current small way

 

I hope to provide continued support for the great many players who cannot pay for themselves or their children.  That shame and other negativity is transformed during every gaming session into all the good things that are COH. 

 

I am deeply thankful for the Homecoming volunteers having helped all our COH families and friends, but particularly those in need.

Yes, I dream of powersets like "Pedantic Assault, Pedantic Control, Pedantic Armor" being added to the game. :classic_laugh:

"Terrible, wonderful things."  (Hellraiser or Event Horizon quote, I think.)

 

Also, thanks from me as well. Things might get changed around in the game, but at the end of the day, I can still make a character, roam around a city of poor hapless people and save them, and chat with folks I have grown to care about.

 

So YAY!
