Home server admins, lend me your ears!

With much head-desking, I managed to finish a pretty major revision of my home server management tool here: [https://github.com/orangeardvaark/JTool](https://github.com/orangeardvaark/JTool) ​ It runs on PHP on your server and SHOULD be


Is there a good central City of Heroes revival FAQ? (I'm joining late, and it's a little overwhelming!)

I quit back around ~Issue 11, so it's been a long time since I've played. It seems like the process of getting access to the server code and running everything has been a nightmare, but I'm not up to date on why there are so many competing hosts, wha


How to run a successful Hamidon Raid on Homecoming.

Hi all, I'm an old-school Hamidon raider. I wasn't in the first Hamidon raid on Liberty (shoutout to anyone from the Hamidon Death Squad if you're still out there) but I was there for them shortly thereafter, and I kept doing Hami raids through the i


Updated farming builds?

I’m currently working on levelling a fire/kinetic controller and a fire/electricity brute build with the goal of farming. but I’m not having much luck finding any up-to-date information on which powers exactly to choose and how to slot them at 5


Me and my obvious IP theft.


Enemy types and enhancements

Does a list exist showing associations that enemy groups have regarding the origin types of enhancement drops? (For example, Circle of Thorns dropping mostly magic.)


So what kind of support (classes) would you want on teams?

Corruptors and/or defenders. What power combos are synergistic and wanted on teams? I am a very long-time veteran, but I want to ask the current players what support sets they hope to get on their teams. Force fields are ridiculously strong bu


Is there a official new version?

I just found out about the game and it seems it died in 2012 is this new version a private server? If it is which pserver has the most players?


So this happened during my stream, and I can honestly say I was not expecting it whatsoever.


Running my own private server?

I'v long wanted to run a private server for just me an my friends. Now that fan run servers are a thing and starting to pop up is there a guide I can use to grab the server software, get it set up and launch my own private instance of CoH?


Ice/Cold Corruptor

What are everyones thoughts on this power combo? I played it back in the day and had a blast. Rolled one when the game came back and while I'm only level 27 on her I'm having a fucking blast all over again! I'm pretty sure I won't be nearly as good i


Very weird Issue

I don't know if anyone can help. I'm playing on Homecoming and also made a ticket there but maby anyone recognises this problem. So I've made a few brutes/scrappers to test this out. But when I take certain powers and I level, and want to level up a


Suggested Melee Support builds?

My first time trying out the game and I am not sure which melee powers sets would give me more of a melee character who can support others in close range situations, thoughts?


Titan Weapons scaling across ATs?

I was using Pine's to compare damage values for attack sets shared by Brutes, Scrappers, and Tankers, and noticed that across the board, Scrapper versions of powers had 65% higher base damage than Brutes, while Tanker versions had 6.7% higher base da


Ok, so now am level 50...which Alpha do I want?

I am playing Street Justice/Willpower. I read up on the wiki about Alpha Incarnate choices but I have no idea what to take. I have heard that I should shore up my resist damage and accuracy. I have also heard just go for straight raw damage. I ha

Stone secondary

Greetings heroes, ​ I'm stuck on choosing a secondary for a stone tank. Ideally I want a secondary that will help this guy be the most effective tank possible for pure team work. ​ Your thoughts? ​ The candidat

Difference between Archery/Trick Arrow and Trick Arrow/Archery?

I've been playing an Archery Blaster for a few day and really enjoying the play style and wanted to try out the Corrupter and Defender ATs, but Defenders only have Archery as a secondary. What sort of difference will that make?


Creating a game sign on

I tried using the same sign in as the Homecoming servers but no good, so I created a new password to my CoH reddit account and tried that but no.. I wanted to see what it was like playing on the new server but I can't yet until I find a way to sign i


Water/FF Corruptor, any moves you recommend not to take?

Looking for some input from people who have played these 2 AT's, any moves that you guys recommend not to take?

The Temptation

Hey all, I was on the market looking for a new MMO to jump into and I just happen to come across this one. The graphics on this one look absolutely horrid, but that's not an automatic disqualifier, just starting on an uphill battle. This looks like

OSX Client?

All of the clients I've seen for these new servers are for Windows. Is there an OSX version of the client (as there was when CoH was active)?

A Question About Scrapper vs. Brute Defenses

Corruptors vs Defenders - Why do you pick one over the other?

Both have access to more or less the same power sets, just swapped between Primary and Secondary. So why pick a Corruptor over a Defender and vice versa? [..]
