According to IGN, City of Heroes subscribers got a Valentine's present ripe for re-gifting:  A code they could share with a friend, granting that friend 2 weeks of access to CoH at no charge.

If this is indeed the case... is there anyone who can hook me up with one of these codes?  As I understand it, the indivdual who shares the code is entered into a contest to get one of the ten beta slots for City of Villains, so you'll be getting something out of it too...

Admittedly I'm more interested in City of Villains, but I figured I'd give CoH a shot for the heck of it.

Thanks a ton to Arkon for the hook up!

Edit: All out of keys... thanks for playing. smile

I already gave away my key, but if anyone gets in you should look up the Wanderers on Virtue and the Hangover of Justice also on Virtue. They both have CG and OO members.

My main char is Hanton, look me up in game. The Wanderers leader is Inspectre, look him up also.

I also have a key if anyone would like to try it.

Why exactly I got a key is beyond me, as I haven't played this game in so long, I can't remember...well, anything about my old characters.

PM me if you can use it.

Do you have to have the game to use the key?  Or is there a DL?  I Wouldnt mind giving it a try if there are still some spare keys out there.

There's download directions that came with the key.  I assume it's just a link to pull down the game from, but perhaps someone who has done it would know for sure.

I have a spare key too.

As for getting the game I think they send you a wee downloader program and it gets the game for you.

You guys should join us on Virtue. I'm playing a Spines/Regen Scrapper named "Warshrike" and Arkon is playing an Ice/Ice Tanker named "Hypo Thermic" Both level 5 right now.  Feel free to add us to your friends list.

Well, I can say that since I last played the game, it is like night and day.  I am having a blast.  Anyone care to explain badges or that can point me to a good site with info on them?

So far it's been a pretty fun experience for me!  I created Tima on Virtue, mainly because when it came time to pick a server I was thinking, "Hummina hummina what server did they say they were all playing again?!" and that one sounded like it.  Scrappers with katanas rock!   biggrin

But really, I'm pretty impressed.  It seems like everything is pretty dang polished, things are relatively easy to figure out (though, I've been doing missions galore and now I need to go to King's Row . . . and I have no clue where to go), and it's just been a fun experience.  Thanks Sepiche for giving me the code!   biggrin   I appreciate it.

Go to the tram station to get to kings row.  It is possible to run to Kings Row, but much easier to just take the T.

I was just remarking to Hypo earlier tonight, that healing defenders were totally awesome and overpowered.  On our way to the tram I watched this defender totally heal his teamates...that has to be a bug. So what I'm thinking is that maybe one of you would like to join us and create a healer defender and totally over power everyone with your healing power.
Actually any warm body will do. As it stands now we slowly bludgeon/freeze our opponants to death...slowly..I'm talking glacial age slowly.

Look for Hardcase and/or Hypo Thermic on Virtue and for a small fee you can join us in our fight against evil.  What? Tanking ain't cheap...

Are any codes still available, and is the promotion still on? I'm a little interested in trying the game, again. I played with the crew on Virtue for a month or so after launch, but then quit. Has the game improved any since then?

I really miss the character customization, tactical battles (compared to WoW), and the ability to zip around the environment with the travel powers. Not sure  if it'd be a good idea for me to look into it again, or not. Has much been added? How far away is CoV?

Edit: I just thought of the travel times and the death penalty. I don't remember them with fondness. Perhaps I should just leave it?

On the other hand, have any new costume components/customization options been added? ;P
