Realistically that makes sense, however.

We don't want the new Devs to rush out something thats busted and have everybody flinging up their hands and saying "ZOMG you guys suck , back to SWTOR, " or whatever. We want the game to have that "Pre Owned MMO" smell.

As much as it pains me to say, I 100% agree with you on this.

Just curious what you guys have planned when the game actually does come back up? I for one will take the day off work...order delivery food all day/night and quite possibly slap on an adult diaper so I never have to leave the keyboard...ok that last part isn't going to happen but the rest...certainly so! I will likely have the most unproductive week of work I have ever had once the game goes live again.

Depends on the day. But a day off is not possible to me since I have kids and if I take a day off I need to pick em up at the daycare school. But maybe If I am nice to my wife I can get the evening off for myself. A beer is then obligatory of course  :)

My husband and I own our own business and work from home; usually I do not take advantage of this, because after all my children like to eat. But if CoH comes back, I'm taking a few days off for the game.

May be optimistic.  I cannot imagine the time and tasks involved to set up things like a support system/help desk, member/identity management much less collect payment and locate talent if needed. The technical issues can only be speculated.

Until then, keep sending good thoughts and wasabi peas

Not to mention the people and time that will be needed to dissect the disk image of the game they're supposed to be getting just to figure out what would be needed to run the game in maintenance mode and then the work that will go into transitioning the game code to the Unreal Engine. On that note, I hope visual upgrades are in the cards. New lighting effects, more polygons and redone textures for character models, etc. would be much appreciated.

We'll have to see how accurate that is. If it turns out to be anywhere near correct, I assume I'll have to level a Fortunata/Widow because I'm friggin' psychic.

It's too late, you've gone and told people about your dream. Prophetic dreams are only accurate when they're kept secret.

Honestly, it depends.

If (for whatever reasons) characters are not restored, I'd like to be able to take the day off of work, in order to ensure that a few character names are mine, mine, all mine. (Just my characters, mind you, I'm not going to try and reserve well-known names of other people's characters)

If characters are restored from the sunset, well, I won't have to take the day off, but I still might.

I was hoping we'd have news today since it would have been my 8 year anniversary of playing the game...okay, I'll hope for it by my birthday in November...
Are you a Scorpio too, or are you after the cutoff?  I'm on the cusp having been born on the 20th.

Surely we're not that desperate for stuff to talk about while we wait? :P

I don't know... When we're talking about potato chips for 2 pages in a thread about the return of a game, I'm pretty sure anything's up for grabs....

What about the Villain ATs' t-shirts?
Brute t-shirt:
"I like it when I'm angry"

How could it be anything other than    SMASH!
