I remember--

Running across the treetops in Perez Park to get to the Lake or a door mission.

Sneaking my lowbie through Steel Canyon to get to Icon because I goofed up some costume part.

Dodging traffic because I thought cars could cause damage (silly newb)

The original Paragon Dance Party.

When they first introduced Lusca, I spent hours in IP trying to "summon" her. There were dozens of rumored ways to do it. Of course, none of them worked.

The first time I won a costume contest.  I was so happy, I bragged about it to my wife.

The first time I hosted a costume contest.

Dinging my first 50, at the same spot, from the same contact she got her first mission from in City Hall.

Street sweeping, when everyone had run out of missions.

"I am too far away from my sidekick."

My first Hamidon Raid. I was terrified of screwing up. So many toons gathered up in Founders. Seeing 40-50 characters fly, super jump and super speed across Eden was soooo badass.

The first time I walked into Atlas Park.  That's when I knew this game was awesome.  Dozens of characters, all completely different, erupting fire or ice or rain or energy or spikes or who-knows-what.

MaHaBone, you nailed every one of my earliest memories. I also remembering being in total awe of seeing a level 50 character for the first time. It was like seeing a God to me. (CoH was my very first mmo...I was SOOOOOO green.)
Listen to the 'mustn'ts'. Listen to the 'don'ts'. Listen to the 'shouldn'ts', the 'impossibles', the 'won'ts'. Listen to the 'you'll never haves', then listen close to me... Anything can happen . Anything can be.

50s were so much rarer back then. Not just because the game was new, but it was also so much more time-intensive to get a toon to 50. Leveling was so much slower and debt was such a burden.

I remember seeing a 50 just chilling out in PP, and this one toon was just a massive poop storm of crazy effects. I couldn't even fat ham what magic combination of powers could make you so loud and crazy-looking.

In hindsight, he was probably a Spines/DA scrapper, with some Haste and Whirlwind for bonus effect.

I've made some adjustments with CO.  it's not CoH but it is nice to have my similar powered hero flying around again.

This!!!  I normally get the week off between Christmas & New Years and that week alone allowed me to catch up on TF's, badges, Incarnate stuff, etc...Long holiday weekends remind me of how much I miss the game.

You had to get a toon to 50 before you could build a Peacebringer or Warshade.

I leveled my blaster to 50. It took me so long but dammit, I did it! And I was beaming when I saw that I unlocked the Peacebringer and Warshade power sets.

....

I played them for half a week and then went back to playing a Blaster :D

I never made it.  I think I hit 49 right before the change dropped.  I was tying like hell to do it, though. I wanted to earn them! :)

(I did get a couple of toons to level 50, one on each "side," but it just didn't happen before the PBs and WSs got "nerfed.")
I wouldn't use the word "replace," but there's no word for "take over for you and make everything better almost immediately," so we just say "replace."

Think it took me over 4 yrs till I got my first 50, lots of alts...
I remember spendin hours in the base editor, up late, saying good night to some sg buds, then having them log in the next morning saying hi to me, there I was, still tweaking and building...


I think it was Nerva, maybe Striga. Soloing and some movement out of the corner of my eye I thought it was another player, seen this guy in the concrete shoes jumping around... LOL

If there was an extra lane, cars would actually change lanes to avoid hitting you.

I dunno, man. I've seen them change lanes to swerve into me. Happened at least twice that I noticed. Course it didn't seem like they were aiming at me, those cars were all over the place; they were probably just busy texting or something. Putting up videos on YouTube of that crazy girl with the glowing swords running down the street pretending she's a ninja..... >.>

I used to love how you could zip around the city at super speed, yet stop dead if you hit a mailbox or pay phone or anything.

Although there were gate doors that would fall of their hinges if you hit them at super speed. :)
That was always fun.

I liked making trash fly out of the cans and dumpster with SS... 

Although Singularity did a great job of leaf collecting in Ouro...

One of my favorite things was to zoom by things at Super Speed to see how I affected them.
