Battle of the Map Zones #5 : Kings vs Skyway

This is another difficult decision:

Kings Row vs. Skyway City
Go!

I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

Kings Row for me on this choice, Skyway was good but I enjoyed Kings Row more.

Skyway.  Especially after they opened the second tram line. 

Skyway had tons of nooks and crannies, lots of places to hide crooks and grannies.

Tough one... but I'll go Kings Row. It had that gritty "Hell's Kitchen" feeling. I loved hitting the rooftops at dusk to save folks from CoT rituals. The clockwork events were fun. And ...I may or may not have spawned a number of Kronos Titans in Kings Row during the Crimson story arc...

Have to agree with Kings Row as well, it just had such a wonderful down to earth aesthetic, due in no small part to its bare brick building designs.
That and using hand clap to send the gang and cultist members in the area flying off of rooftops was always fun  ;D

This one is difficult for me. I really liked both zones. I think King's Row edges out, though, simply for the memories of playing there.

I always wanted to like Skyway, but rarely found any reason to go there. It was an interesting concept of a zone, but it really needed an update to give it some content or something.

Kings Row. I always went there with my low-level characters (until the sewer trial, I forget what it's called, let me level my characters to 22 super fast) and I have many good memories there. Skyway looks cooler I think, but it was a hard place to navigate if you didn't have flying or juper jumping.

Kings Row always had more personality to me... Skyway was just a mess of greenspace and overpasses with a ew shanties, but KR had history and verve... I even based one of my fave characters out of there

By hair's breath, I'll say Skyway.
I loved fighting the Supra Trolls by the train station, and if I got in over my head, leading them to the police drones.
Having two train stations is a plus.
And that annoying tunnel, for the win.
I don't know when City of Heroes will return, or do I?

King's Row.

Why?



The plaza there had this epic music every time you went by it. Pure awesomesauce.
"Frank! It's the love boat to Cuba! Shuffle board and pineapples filled with rum. Know what they do? They put little paper umbrellas sticking out the top so that when it rains, it don't thin out the liquor."

Ok, Kings.
Interestingly, there is a street about a mile from my house named Kingsrow.
No, I haven't seen Croatoa Blvd., Brickstown St. or Faultline Dr.
There is a Boomtown that sells fireworks each year, but that's different.
