UPDATE

I did contact the team yesterday and got this reply back:

Things are moving along. We should have things worth showing fairly soon, made a great leap forward yesterday.

The thing is while it is quiet here - work is being done behind the scenes.

Thank you, Ironwolf!

I don't think it's something for us, but rather the work to show NCSoft that they are capable of handling the game and looking after the name.

Agreed.  Regardless of non-disclosure agreements it could be ugly, boring or distracting from the primary goal:  quietly and competently get the game going.

...then crush all heroes in Paragon City.

I would really like to run a Mayhem Mission....

Damn I miss playing my dark/storm/mako. I used dark blue and light red for the dark for the color tint so when you shoot gloom it's feels psychedelic and with water spout and 2 tornado active you just see complete chaos xD
Seems like we ran the same builds :D 9+ "pets" to put MMs to shame.

duane, the forum ranks you as a minion (for making 20 posts), but I've rated you as a Mastermind. ;)

Heh I rmember the hardest thing on that build was to find that proc that converted knockback to knockup to tornadoes would act like waterspouts xD. I guess remaking that character is on my list of things to do

... I for one, recommend (when the game is live & ready to play) that the devs put up a statue of Ironwolf in AP for his heroic efforts in getting our game back!!!! ;D
He deserves a whole damn trial... "You have earned the Ironwolf badge"

I would gladly leave my current game to come back to this one. Even sweeter if we can get Issue 24 as well. Keep up the good work! I need to either get back on my old scrappers or on new ones.

Is there a pay place set up where we can donate to the cause?

A huge thanks to Ironwolf (the Catalyst and Reporter Extraordinaire) and the Devs-To-Be for not giving up!

A badge for Ironwolf... the "CaRE" badge.

Awesome news :) thank you Wolf for relaying to us what the devs have said.

I tried to put in my cc into what I thought was a cc reader it did not work, when this game comes back I have a lot of money to spend.
One day soon this Phoenix will fly once again.
One day the Phoenix will rise again.

So far there is no need for money. The team is working to prove technical competence and once that is finished they will be working through on making the deal to acquire the game. No other group outside of the first effort with the Paragon Studios has gotten this far.

They were already running the game so competence was a no brainer. I don't know what the project does that this team is working on. It may be taking the original game and reverse engineeering it to get it running or some other display that NCSoft wants to see.

It could be a number of things not only game related. Remember running a game is a multipronged task, with websites, accounting, public relations, banking, development, supervision, servers, data administration, GM's for support. It might not be just a simple - code this and you guys are good sort of thing. NCSoft has to feel this team can run the game and do so in a manner that doesn't reflect poorly on NCSoft.

It is to OUR benefit that this is true as well!

That's cool to hear they are running the game, did they have to do a lot of repair on the image? It is ok if you can't answer this question it is enough for me to know they are running it.

I know I remember a earlier post saying the image was in bad shape. I do not remember when he posted that, when he just posted that they have it running I was wondering if the image was repaired. :)

Great news, and thanks for the updates! We're hanging on your every word.

Also, if you are in communications with those working on a deal, please pass our thanks and support.

If something is worth wanting, it's worth waiting for ... except chocolate.
