City of Heroes Closure Stirs Emotions; Massive Fan Reaction

As we all know by now NCSoft is closing City of Heroes and disbanding Paragon Studios.

This is actually something of a hugely emotional event for many of the fans of the game. People who have played it since launch and even survived the transition to free-to-play (only a year or so ago.) As a result of the announcement, Facebook pages have appeared, petitions have surfaced, even some celebrity authors have gotten behind trying to save it -- Mercedes Lackey and Neil Gaiman both have thrown in their support.

Let me know if you play City of Heroes and tell me what you think about the closure.
