CoH, no luck so far...

Well, 45 minutes of trying and I've only gotten as far as the server selection. The login servers must be jammed, but I wouldn't think this would be a problem with only preorders playing. I'll keep trying.

so, now that you''re playing for real, you have to spend 15 bucks a month to play?

On top of the 50 bucks for the game?

Sorry, i''m just trying to make sure of the facts before i decide on buying or not...

Well, the initial $50 also includes the first month''s service.

i made my guy and am on pinnacle as Groan.
(off right now, but got in just to make my guy)

Managed to finally get in game. Probably gonna make a char on Pinnalce in a bit though, since I started my first on Justice.

On Pinnacle, my name is Mardi Gras (I do live close to New Orleans). Seems pretty cool so far!

Hey did you get your retail box yet from your pre order, was with EB?

I probably won''t make it in till tonight. Damn Lakers/Rockets game on today and I can''t miss it.

No, the retail box won''t arrive until Tuesday.

So we decided on Pinnacle? I managed to go out and get a preorder disc today, and I am trying to decide where and what to create. I''d like to make a controller, but only if it looks like there will be a GWJ group to join, as I don''t relish the idea of trying to solo with one.

Ok, I have a magic scrapper named Baalzemon on Pinnacle- look me up.

Edit: And a science controller named Ace O''Spades.

I am going to have to quit reading all CoH threads as of today. I will always wonder what could have been. Bring on WoW!

I''ve created a Science Blaster called The Cremator on Pinnacle.

I''ve made a mutation scrapper on Pinnacle, his name is Vailerth. I''m thinking I might make a tanker, since that kinda seems like there aren''t too many of em around so it might be helpful to be one for grouping. So is there going to be a GWJ super group right?

I''ve got a Mutant Blaster named Burnt Offering on Pinnacle at the moment, if anybody''s in game.

Was fine when I hoped on and made characters... though the whole new reservation things dosn''t seem to have worked at all.

Yeah, can''t find any of my reserved names. No biggie I guess.

Save a spot on the GWJ''s team for a mutant gravity/radiation controller

Chumpy!
Someone said Burnt was you and I said that it was my bro.
he used to call himself Burnt Offering all the time!

Guys, just so it''s easier to find this info, why not use the forum i set up? (see my sig).
we can then see everything at once instead of having to dig through these threads.

Man, last night rocked. I got to group with Pink and his wife for a while with Baalzemon, my magic scrapper, then they got d/ced and I logged on Ace O''Spades, my science controller and grouped with Chumpy''s blaster for a while. That was incredible- we were mowing down everything in sight with ease. I haven''t had that much fun in a MMORPG in a long time. The only thing I hate is that I picked gravity more or less on a whim, and apparently everyone is playing gravity controllers. The game is still incredible, though.

Everyone may be a gravity controller, but mine will look the coolest I may change my mind on the second set tho

Bah- Ace O''Spades is the mack.

I second Jadawin''s ""rockin''"" assessment - turns out the controller/blaster combo is pretty kickass, at least at early levels. We''ll see how it goes for higher up, but early signs indicate ""grrrrrREAT!""

Mardi Gras sounds like a girl''s name. Fat Tuesday, on the other hand....

On pinnacle I am known as TeslaCoil all one word....

I had reserved Tesla Coil as 2 words, but after they changed the name reservation system I lost it.

Nah, 1940s mobster.

Ral, Fang and I played last night. Made it to level 7 before logging out. Lotsa fun. I figured that I wanted to get all of my names up front, so I don''t have to worry about it when the general session begins on Wednesday, so I made 8 characters on Pinnace. If anyone cares, or wants to add them to their friends list, my characters are:

Whizzer - Martial Arts/Agility/Superspeed scrapper
Starchild - Energy/Energy blaster
Wildcard - Katana/Regeneration scrapper
Hellstorm - Fire/Fire blaster
Black Eagle - Assault rifle/Devices blaster
Planetbreaker - Super strength/Invulnerabilty tanker
Brainiac Five - Mind control/Force field controller

And a Dark/Dark Defender that I can''t remember the name of right now

My alternate server is Victory (the name reservation server). And I think I have Wildcard on every server but Freedom & Justice and Whizzer on every server but Guardian. (I love''s me scrappers)

I''ve added all these players names to the new forum..ugh.

Actually, Im diggin the Earth/Radiation Controller.

Me Ral and JMJ had some great fun. The controllers job is making sure the mobs all stick close together (so Ral''s mega bolt of sizzle can reach maximum effectiveness) and to make sure that some of those guys that are clawing at JMJ''s back are frozen so his left right left right left right sucka punches pound some fool. (JMJ your character is pure gold entertainment)

Almost makes me wanna make a Kenchiro character. (for those familiar with Fist of the North Star)

They both kept saying how much they appreciated my char but all I was doing was getting men on base, they were smacking the grand slams! =)

Now there''s something I thought I''d never read from fang.
