Farewell Triumph and Thank You all




Hello all,

Never thought this day would ever come, but here we are with time winding down on Paragon City.

I wanted to take the opportunity to say farewell to the Triumph community. There are so many of you I have teamed with over the years, it would take too long to type out everyone's name. It has been an honor and a privilege to play CoX with with you on Triumph over the years. Some of you I have gotten to know and become friends with in real life, and I have CoX to thank for bringing us together. It's truly heartbreaking for me to think about never being able to log in to Paragon City again and seeing the global friends list lit up, donning the cape and tights for some CoX fun with my friends.

With the game coming to an end, I've found myself reminiscing about City of Heroes quite a lot lately. I'm going to miss this game very much. It breaks my heart to see it go. I honestly looked forward to playing CoH with my son one day when he got older.

Recently, I dug out a piece of artwork I had commissioned from MMOArt years ago of Miss Foley and Mini Miss Foley. It was a birthday gift for my friend - Miss Foley - a person with whom I have never laughed so hard or had so much fun in game with. It was sitting in my closet since we moved to our new home and I'm going to get a new frame for it and hang it on my wall. I also found a sketchbook of my main toons that I had various artists draw over the years at the NYCC.

Even more than these pieces of art, there are so many fond memories, so many fun times I have had and shared with you all in the Triumph community over the last 8 years. I cannot find the words to express to you all how much joy and laughter you brought me, so I will just say from the bottom of my heart, "Thank You". And very big thank you to everyong at Paragon Studios for the years of joy.

I wish you all the best and hope to see you all again one day. I certainly hope one day there will be another superhero MMO that can measure up to City of Heroes, and that I will find you all there again.

All the best to you and your families. I will miss you all.
