    I play City of Heroes all the time. I'd post this on the FP but it's dated 6/7, so that's past the 3 day limit on stories. Feel free to discuss here.

    :eek:

    Lineage 2 is my favourite MMO. I'm not playing it in official servers though...Private ones are more fun. But NCSoft is OK, imo. Bad news, but maybe it'll bring some positive changes in company's policies?
