Sorry Atlantea, you were 8 seconds too slow. :D

Mods: Don't merge this with the other topic as that one is for the demoedit machinima version.

I just died... that was so hilarious. I love those guys. I thank them for the laugh in the midst of all this nonsense we're dealing with. Kind of ironic in a small way that it's a Korean song...

Michelle,

  I loved your video(s). You are awesome in your demo editing skills. I might even go so far as to make that last s a z and say "you got Skillz, yo!" ;)

Also, I am glad to see that the Paragon Studios designers haven't lost their sense of humor. That is why they are the absolute best design team around.

Wonder what they are starting to work on.  Hope we aren't going head to head with them.  Of course if we do find out it's another superhero MMO I'm sure everyone here agree we turn over our ideas to them.  And lend any help we can.

That's already been discussed, yes. We don't want to compete with our beloved devs.

My prediction is about half of the people who have been posting plan Z stuff agree with you and would stop / combine efforts, and about half are too attached to their ideas and would split off.

Just my gut feeling on it.

Nothing wrong with that at all!

Look - the more that ideas COMPETE, the better the ideas get. I felt that way about Champions Online and DCUO when they came out, and I still do. Especially CO. I think that some of the things that CO accomplished kicked our devs in the behind. Remember power colorization? Our Devs swore up and down it was too difficult to devote resources to. CO comes out with power colorization, and... Hey! Guess what? We get it too! That's just the most obvious example. Of course there are counter examples. CO has it's own version of Sidekicking for example.

So having more than one group of people developing stuff tends to make each group do better I think.

All fine but for one reason.

Our goal is not to make a game but save the community.  Plan Z is Plan Z because it's the last option we have to stop the loss of the awesomeness of the City of heroes fan base.  even now we are bleeding as refugees find new games.  Even I went and made a Champions account.

So if the Dev make a game and we do as well We be forcing the Community that survives this to split.  Not everyone can devote their time to more then one MMO.

I always saw Plan Z as "Save Our Community FIRST.  Save what we loved about CoX Second.  Make a Game third."  And in truth if the Devs can use our Ideas wouldn't we also be doing the third of that?  It would be our ideas given form does it matter if it's our hands or the skilled hands of the Devs? 

My goal is to save our community, save the uniqueness in any form that is CoX, Not to make a game.  A game is a program and if that program done by someone else and fits my hopes and desires more power to them.
