NCSoft has detailed its Spring Fling plans for City of Heroes. On top of the three traditional Spring Fling co-op missions , characters of level 30 or above can take on a quest involving the Red Widow to score the Widow Maker badge, while level 20 and above can access Valentines, which awards players with the Match Maker or Missed Connection badges, and grants one of two temporary abilities, Arrows of Romance and Arrows of Jealousy. The fun kicked off this morning in the US and runs through February 27.

City of Heroes players who used exploits in the Mission Architect feature to power level their characters may get rewards earned through the dubious act revoked as a punishment.
The possibility of the character being disabled completely is also a possibility.
CoH lead designer Matt “Positron” Miller outlined the consequences over on the official forums:
- Players that have abused the reward system egregiously may lose benefits they have gained – leading up to and perhaps including losing access to the characters power-leveled in this fashion.
- Currently, some badges are being modified, and some may be removed from the game entirely. The list of changes being made to the MA badge system is not final yet, but you will be made aware when we have a concrete plan.
- Players who knowingly use an exploit when creating an arc, run the risk of having access to MA suspended, or worse- depending on the severity of the action, their account banned.
Missions that were created to exploit the system will also be deleted.

NCsoft’s released the City of Heroes Issue 14: Architect update: player-created content generated 20,000 mission arcs within 24-hours.
Both factions created more than 3,800 stories with five missions each, resulting in more content that the developers created since the MMO’s inception.
In a letter posted on the game’s community site, Matt “Positron” Miller said that the mission architect “exceeded any expectation we have set for it.”
The site has a breakdown of the actual numbers.
