City of Heroes petition gathers 20,000 signatures

Friday, 28th September 2012 06:51 GMT By Brenna Hillier

City of Heroes fans have poured tremendous effort into trying to save the MMORPG, which is scheduled to close before the end of the year.

It doesn't take itself very seriously.

Massively notes a petition to keep the game online has gathered more than 20,000 signatures.

But signatures aren’t all fans are fronting in order to save the unique virtual world; ONRPG reports players coughed up over $1,000 to treat Paragon Studios to a meal, to show support and gratitude to the team.

One player has written a stirring letter to NCSoft asking the publisher’s staff to play the game and see for themselves why it’s worth preserving; others have since copied the missive and posted it to the game’s official email address.

Paragon Studios has also been quietly fighting to save the active community – and itself – from closure. NCSoft has begun issuing refunds for City of Heroes subscriptions and has scheduled end game events.

    Reminds me of when they murdered Tabula Rasa. It’s hopeless folks, accept the inevitable end and embrace the cold, endless void.
    I was there when Arieki fell, when Concordia burned,at the last battle in Empire Crater, when no amount of pleading could stem the will of death.
