    Wasn't City of Heroes a cheap knockoff of the DC universe in the first place?

    So they're making a cheap knockoff of City of Heroes, banking on the DC name to sell it? No thanks.

    This is made by the company who was too incompetent to capitalize on the Star Wars franchise. With EQ2 SOE has proved that it has lost contact with gamers. When EQ2 came out, it had many glaring gameplay issues and retarded rules like party member death penalty is shared by group. So if you had a dumbass in your group, you all paid the price. Not to mention it was a grind fest and you were forced to group. Star Wars Galaxies ... well ... it's pretty much dead. EQ is dying. EQ2 is stalling, no new growth. Matrix Online (they picked it up) is pretty much dead too.

    Why would any franchise holder trust this company is something I don't understand.

Civilization, as we know it, will end sometime this evening. See SYSNOTE tomorrow for more information.
