Paragon Dance Party deserves an update.


Recommended Posts

there should be an SG portal in there, and an exploration badge, as well as a day job power.  perhaps also add a door from pocket D to Paragon Dance party somewhere.   Paragon Dance Party was the original hang out place before Pocket D, and I still prefer it... It's my dream to once again see PDP full of people.  I think making it easier to access would help a lot.....  also add it to long range teleporter...  *^_^*

 

i'm pretty sure nobody would complain about these additions *^_^* who doesnt love paragon dance party?  my favorite novelty area in the game by far.  ❤️ pre-NCsoft buyout COH...

Posted this a while back.  PDP was part of the suggestion.

I was just in the zone the other day and I enjoyed the techno beats on repeat. Is this a hero only zone?

 

Edit: Thanks @Darmian, also HC Wiki for the win! Paragon Dance Party

It is.

 

But the Rikti Monkey Fight Club in Sharkhead is a villain only zone, so that balances out.

tbh I always preferred the music in Paragon Dance Party over pocket D....  PDP just has the most nostalgic atmosphere... It simply deserves more love.

There are doors for the zone in Steel Canyon, Independence Port and...Skyway?  Can never remember where the third door is.

I'd like to see... ANY other player in there sometime, yeah. Hook it back into reality more.

north and south doors in steel canyon, independence port (on terra volta island) and talos island.  (talos island you can use the side door or the movie theater door)  during live it was never on the map, but in homecoming they added it to the map.  check it out some time.

i always thought in pocket D it was saying "the breffers and the jeffers & the U.K. in the house"  whatever the hell that means.

 

i'm in paragon dance party quite a bit on the everlasting server.  i even have a paragon dance party themed SG in response to the other club themed SG's... it's called The Cryptic Underground.  only two members so far so LMK if you wanna join.  the other clubs are just copy "cats"!

I've tried to parse out that line many times and all that really comes in clear is IN THE HOUSE! Which is why I like the techno over in PDP... reminds me of walking down the mile of techno clubs in Dusseldorf.

There's a homeless guy by the door just north of the theatre in Talos Island; if you click on him, he'll tell you that the PDP is gone, and to go away:

 

[NPC] Bum: Hellooooo! Resting here! No Paragon Dance Party if you didn't notice. Go to Pocket D. Now kindly LEAVE.

he's lying.  crazy bum. probably strung out on weird rikti drugs and thinks it's still 2012.   click on the door, it's open.

 

another good point though.  The devs should remove the bums and put the PDP posters back up.  only the south steel canyon entrance still has posters if i remember correctly

I'd hope a Dev has a spare hour to make these tweaks. None seem like more than flipping a few switches.

bump.   Nobody else has any PDP love????

 

With club themed bases being a dime a dozen, it's a tough sell to get traffic there, particularly given that Pocket D evolved from PDP when the population rose enough that chat proximity became a big problem (the same problem people complain about now with a lot of people near each other).

 

That said I wouldn't mind seeing an SG portal and/or the current badge outside the door giving you direct access to it via the travel teleporter. Direct access via Pocket D I wouldn't complain about or disagree with personally, but no one really visits Studio 55 and that's also linked.

DJ Zero probably bribes this guy to keep people away too, so he might take issue with a direct link to the old place.

HEY!  HEY! I'm walking here!

 

The Praetorians SG on Reunion visit that a lot 🙂  Then again, Reunion has a Gold side thing, the amount of Level 50 Golds (who didn't leave) is a lot higher than you'd think!

 

Also, I am still plugging my AE/Full Mission Halfway House Pie-in-the-Sky program above! LOL.

 

Having a bunch of "off duty" contacts there with a variety of missions, from tip style to mini arcs would make PDP a different sort of club to Pocket D.  Same for the other two clubs.

having PDP accessible from pocket D would like.. complete the circle, man

 

the fact there are so many club-themed SG's is kinda a shame considering the playerbase is ignoring the real classic original club..  i even created a PDP themed SG called "The Cryptic Underground" on everlasting in response to these club themed SG's touting their copycat clubs...

 

and yeah adding a whisper channel would make PDP even better...  though not totally needed... i sure as heck wouldnt complain about such a feature

 

 I Just love paragon dance party ❤️

See, this is one reason the Dance Party needs attention!

 

Really, these are under-utilized/neglected resources.

But isn't that a perfect imitation of life?  I've never been in a club where screaming to make yourself heard wasn't necessary. 😛

Bases have to be "known" to enter. PDP is for everybody. So.

 

Any efforts appreciated... it's a nice little place, deserves not to be forgetabandoned.

I think this every time I read a roleplayer thread/request and I’m just bursting to express it:

 

Can I just say that I respect the right of roleplayers to exist and to receive their allotted portion of developer attention..

 

But why y’all gotta be so damn weird
