[City of Heroes] I returned to City of Heroes about a month before World of Warcraft and EverQuest II went live. A week into my return, I found a new supergroup, and which is still my main group (plus a couple of people from other groups). Having hit level 40 about two weeks before WoW went live, I knew I needed to put the pedal to the metal, especially since we were expecting a new Issue (CoH update) on the test server soon. This led to my “11 levels in 11 days” quest, which is not as easy as it sounds in the later levels. The first night of it, I went from the end of level 39 to the start of 41. By consuming hundreds of Kora fruit and detonating thousands of Shadowhunter’s wolves, I found myself at level 50.
Very soon after, EQ2 and WoW went live. We lost about half our supergroup instantly, probably more considering the newer or less hardcore players who disappeared soon after. We’re still sharing a TeamSpeak server, but we don’t cross channels much. We have occasional visitors, but it looks like people are in WoW for the long run. We have a couple dozen level 50 members who have not been seen in a long while.
Now, we have 6-8 members who appear regularly on TeamSpeak. Two of them just started playing Guild Wars. This could get ugly.
