Why in the hell would i want to have CoH locked at Issue 23?
Besides the fact that some really good stuff was coming in Issue 24 there was a bunch of interesting events and additions planned for the next several issues. i started playing during Issue 0 and really enjoyed all the additions to is since then. At shutdown the game was leaps and bound better than it was at launch. While i would play CoH even if it was put into perpetual maintenance mode with no more content planned to be added i would certainly not want it to be locked that way intentionally.
No. No. No. 3.141592653*10^9 times no.
So far so good. Onward and upward!

Yeah, I know. I wouldn't WANT for it to be locked. But I'd SETTLE for it to be locked if it was playable somewhere.

Plus, that's why I said "any publicity is good publicity." For me, getting the game back is 90% of the point. Which version is the other 10%. I'd frankly settle for any version at all that was playable.

An what's with the billion PI  ???

I think I would also not mind having the Pre-ED version playable somewhere. What was that, I6? My Invul/SS tank was an unstoppable tall blue alien goddess. It wasn't balanced, for sure, but after a hard day at the soul-crushing office there was nothing like just beating the living crap out of purple stuff.

So, due to the nature of the OP, your only two choices are A) the game is unavailable and B) the game is maintenance-mode in Issue 23...your choice would be A? What kind of CoHer are you? :p

I prefer the post ED world myself.. could be even more overpowered that Pre-Ed if thats your thing..

I'm with Chuck on this I'd certainly take I-23 and be forever grateful. A Pre ED would be less desirable but it would get me back in my city which I dearly miss.

Indeed, I'd be thrilled with having it back as was before shutdown, even if I lost everything and had to completely rebuild our SG and all of my characters from scratch.

I think Post ED was far more overpowered then Pre ED when inventions came out.  It just made you have to earn being overpowered.  Which I felt was a good thing, one shouldn't be overpowered just from being overpowered being handed to you on a silver platter.  The incarnate powers in fact were also the same way in if they made you overpowered, well you earned them, you weren't just given them on a silver platter.  How fast you got them really depended on what incarnate trials you did most, I prefered to do every one of them except for the underground trial(which honestly suffered fake difficulty due to the boss mechanics allowing for griefers to kill the entire league with ease).  In fact I actually enjoyed all of them, just the underground trial really needed something to more clearly indicate who was targetted by the league-wiping attacks.
Currently; Not doing any streaming, found myself with less time available recently.  Still playing starbound periodically, though I am thinking of trying other games.  Don't tell me to play mmohtg's though please :).  Getting back into participating in VO and the successors again to.

I was happy when they introduced the solo-able incarnate path. I never particularly cared for the raids, but I did enjoy teaming up with my fellow SG mates. The Solo-able path made it so we could do what we loved, and still progress with the Incarnate abilities.

I didn't start doing Incarnate content until they introduced the solo path, but once I did, I found that the raids were a lot of fun. I'd always avoided it because I assumed endgame content was always like Worlds of Warcraft, something for hypercompetitive perfectionists who spent their whole lives playing. Turns out that CoH was much more casual-friendly and fun. :)

I participated in a few (dozen) raids. I just never cared for the large-group-of-players content. I much prefer smaller groups. 8 is enough for me. :-)

The raids weren't horrible or anything, just not to my taste.

I'd pick CoH Issue 2 or 3, before regen got gutted (and the rest of the crappy nerfs made for PvP, of course).

Sorry to say but if you picked Issue 2 or 3 you wouldn't have had PvP. That wasn't introduced until Issue 4 with the arenas then the zones were introduced when they released City of Villains.

As a regular leader of UGT and MoUGT trials (when the game was running, of course) - I'm a little unclear as to what "boss mechanics allowing for griefers" means to you. The yellowish swirl? The seedlings confuse power? UGT is lengthy, but really as simple as BAF or Lambda, you just need to have players capable of following instructions. Clarions certainly help, particularly when going for the Avatar Assassin badge. But, other than that, it's pretty simple. Long, but simple. Shortcuts can be made (a group sent ahead to clear the bombs can save some time, but that can impact the fun factor for the rest of the league. )

The only trial I didn't enjoy was TPN simply because it was all in one small general area, very repetitive and boring. I needed something other than going in and out of a few buildings... As for ugt, I don't recall ever seeing griefers on my server.

I needed to play everything after Keyes, at least once.

I think I might had the second level shift but that was as far as I got.

I can't imagine anyone would pick "no game" over "I23 only"
