I know there are a few folks here who might have played the game waayyy back. If so, you’ll be excited to learn there’s a community-backed server that went public several weeks ago(!). It’s already gained over 22k accounts (!). A thread on another forum that posts how to get access here.
Articles on Massively about how this happened here.
I am surprised at how happy and excited this made me. Just be able to create a CoH Fire-Kinetic controller and play the Outbreak tutorial was a blast. That’s about as far as I got before I got kicked off the server. The usual warnings about it being a volunteer-run effort; no support, highly unstable, circa 2009 graphics, etc. etc.
Anyways, something to tide me over and give me a break from the SWL grind, and nostalgia-filled to boot.
