      I backed titans and I doubled my pledge to you for your incredible progress! I believe in you and look forward to many years subscribing to your game!!

    2. Brook Monroe - Phoenix Rising Announcer on April 7

      I can wait. I'll keep working on one of my own games in the meantime. I hope to finish it by retirement age. :)

    3. Geoff W. on April 7

      It has become quiet here, and the creators are silent. Funding has stalled a bit. Please remember to share on social media!

      COH is the only MMO I have ever played; I wouldn't consider myself much of a gamer. However these types of games have the innate ability to form a tight following, and bring friends together. I will double my pledge if the support continues :)

    5. Mark Doolan on April 5

      Another questions if names are like Champions Online where everyone can have the same name with the @accountname after it? Or like CoH where you only one with name on that server? If it the former does reserving name of character make it unique, if the latter where only your account can chose that name per server? Hope my question is understood.

      I really hope this game comes off, I've missed City of Heroes ever since it closed down, no other game I've tried has had the same feel of game play or community.
      I'd also like to echo the global handle instead of character name, it seems more "long-term" as a reward.

      I've also got a question on platform, will this be available for all computer platforms (Windows, Mac and Linux) or just some of them (please, please, please tell me there will be a native linux interface to make my life easier and happier)

      I have to echo Melissa's suggestion re: global handle. It being permanent meant everyone knew who you were and it became an online identity of sorts. Would dearly love to reserve a global handle rather than character name :)

    8. Melissa Indigo Tatom on April 5

      A couple questions- many MMOs (CoH, blizzard, etc) have a global chat handle that is used across all servers, games, and characters. Will you be doing that? I'd rather reserve a global handle of some sort than a character name.. but if you ever get so big you split servers, will the name we reserve be so on all servers, like our special trademark name?

      Next question, I think I saw this in a video as a "maybe".. will there someday be non-human costume choices? I'd love to recreate my old coh main, who was a tiny dragon, someday.

      I really hope this gets funded and made.
      I played CoH since beta all the way until that fateful November day in 2012
      In my opinion Ship of Heroes IS the successor game we're needing and wanting.

      Love this idea - CoH was my go to game for a long time, and I was really disappointed when it closed. I really want to see this succeed - To that end, any chance of buffing the tier rewards a bit? They seem a bit thin right now, especially having to go up to $1k for Alpha access.

    11. Joe Andreucci on April 4

      I played City of Heroes from the Alpha until the last day and I loved every second of it. This game looks like a proper successor to that amazing game.
      I'm really looking forward to digging into this game and meeting other fantastic heroes in what looks to be another amazing communities.

      Shout out to anyone who played on Infinity!

    12. Karsten Sethre on April 4

      There's a lot of things CoH had that I'm really hoping this has, that other games I tried didn't seem to do, or do as well. A few of the big ones are most things being instanced so there isn't competition in the open world (I've seen MMOs where people literally form lines to kill an open world boss needed for a quest), auto-scaling content to the level a quest is taken, auto-scaling content to the size of the team, and a design where most teams could be viable and didn't depend on the "tank/dps/healer" trinity that almost every other MMO relies on. Non-combat wise, there's the way it was easy to set up multiple and tabbed chat windows to keep combat and various chats separate, and global channels.

      Sorry if it sounds like I'm asking for a clone of CoH; I'm not, really, but a lot of these game and interface mechanics I think helped it make it as enjoyable as it was for myself and other fans.

      I just want to say:
      Geoff W. Had an amazing question. And it's very very valid. Cause like before..My then girlfriend who is now my wife will want in on this too!

      Geoff W.:

      Very excited! But is there any chance of a "Dynamic Duo" or "Sidekick/Mentor" pledge level? Something that gives two packages at, perhaps, a tiny discount over buying them separately? Or with some unique perk or reward? I ask this, knowing that MANY CoX players (myself and my wife included) played with spouses/sig. others, and this would cater to that large segment. In any case, best of luck with the campaign!

      RePosting because smiley faces turned into question marks and I didn't want to come off as a troll. So again:

      I have faith in only a couple of Hero MMOs. But drastically by far..I am 1000% all in on SoH! The demo above tells the tale if you are a true CoH/V fan. I am indefinitely sold and have all faith in Ship of Heroes!
      The true successor to City of Heroes/Villains is right here! You'd risk not seeing it come to fruition? Not I!!!
      My #1 Hero name will be either Sprint Burst or Reach. Yes, I am thinking that far ahead. Can't wait!

      Been following this for a while now and tweeting about it a fair bit. I'd like to see more communication on the forums and such, but I'm very hopeful for this project and I appreciate all the polls for supporter input!

      @markdolan Yes! each tier includes lesser tiers. we will update the language on the rewards.

    24. Mark Doolan on April 4

      Not to assume, but we get lesser tier awards?

      I've been following the progress of SoH for months now and it's fantastic to finally see the Kickstarter arrive. The community on the forums is already shaping up to be very positive and friendly, I can only imagine the game itself will be the same way. Good luck guys, I've pledged!

      Wow!! Incredible game -- thanks so much for taking this project on! Nice to support a game that actually has a positive, optimistic and uplifting approach.... and family friendly. All too rare in my view. Great work SoH team and good luck!

      Super excited! I miss my gravity controller! Devs don't forget about the gravity power set when the Controllers come out!!! ;) Also please do the "Ragdoll" death like COH. Nobody likes a enemy dyeing the same way over and over! Cheers!!!

    30. Galactus55 on April 4

      Build it and they will come!

    31. Mark M on April 4

      I rarely back anything through crowd-funding but am making exceptions for a couple of the potential CoH successors. I'm impressed with the timelines and delivery so far and I believe the devs are competent and committed. Let's make this happen!

      It's been a struggle to get my head around some of the concepts - *please* rename unobtanium! ;) - but I think this could really work. :)

      Good luck with the KS!

    32. lunawisp on April 4

      Fingers (and everything else) crossed now.

      Remember though, with Kickstarter, it's all or nothing. If they reach the target, the developers get the money, if KS is short by even one dollar they get nothing so we'll need to do our best to keep this one alive on social media, game sites, etc. Don't go around spamming of course, don't want to put people off, but we need to do our bit to help keep it in people's minds :)

      I am really looking forward to playing the game. :-)
