Happy anniversary CoH; the Legacy lives on.
« on: April 30, 2013, 08:55:25 AM »
I've debated on saying anything here. Most of you don't know me or my group, but I felt it worth mentioning.

I played CoH before the forming of our group, but it became a 'home' with them. Our anniversary was announced on the yahoogroup we keep not long ago, and I still can't stop thinking about Paragon and what it meant to us, even though we have continued on into other worlds, other places that need our help. None were home to us like Paragon was... and I fear will never be again. We still run together but there's no mistaking the lack of familiarity we have with each other in these new places.

As a lurker here I've seen Co* mentioned on other websites, but still I can't help but think that NCsoft doesn't realize what it gave up when it turned its back on us. The loyalty, the love we had- not just in my little group- I see us as nothing more than a slice of that same demographic. CO feels plastic and empty compared to our home, DCUO is a different animal altogether, neither like our home, but the only alternatives to what we strive for. Others come closer and farther, but none make us feel the heroes (or villains) that Co* did.

I love you. All of you that keep the dream of Paragon alive. In theory or practice. Believing our "our city" still matters, if just to one (In-game) werewolf who defied the odds in one world to prove that direct desire can be overcome by love and devotion to an idea (what defined my namesake) is worthwhile and continue to honor those ideals in articles around the web well... thank you.

Happy anniversary, legacy, and happy anniversary Co* Both live strong in heart and memories.

I agree with everything you said there. Happy anniversary, wolfie. And happy anniversary to you, Paragon City, and to all your citizens.
