    The source code is out there now. That's all that matters really.

    Soon there will be many fires.

    I'm playing the game while I can and hoping NCSoft just decide to ignore it. If they don't, well, then I wait for the secondary servers to pop up.

    But I'm hoping they have some semblance of PR damage control at this point and just let it go, or come to an agreement with the team.

    It's nice to have hope, but judging from past NCsoft actions, they may not actually know what PR Damage Control is.

    So, two things.
    1, I don't know anything about Leandro other than what I've seen posted - I was dealing with my own stuff during shutdown, my own efforts to save some portion of the game - but he doesn't seem to be "just some rando". I'm pretty sure he's not secretly Positron, but from what others are saying, he's not nobody.
    2. Again, from what I've seen posted, this doesn't look to me like a cult so much as "if NCsoft ever hears a word of this they will nuke it from orbit and then CoH will be dead, completely, forever." Which, y'know, they still might at any time. Ever since news of this broke, I've been waiting for the hammer to fall. The optimism I've been seeing is inspiring, but at the same time, I still wonder what NCsoft's response is going to be or if we're going to run into any other show-stoppers like yesterday's panic over the GDPR. This could all end as quickly as it started. As a friend of mine noted today, the current effort is all taking place right out in the open... and unfortunately, transparency also equals (potential) exposure and liability. I think the people involved could maybe stand to keep things a little more under wraps, exercise some discretion and opsec, until we know what the official word/stance is. If all of this gets shut down, if we lose the City again so soon after we got it back, it's going to be crushing to a lot of folks.

    (Again, apologies for the wet blanket, but the original shutdown + the last couple of years have made it hard for me to have hope sometimes.)

    You do realize that NCSoft has no power to "nuke it from orbit" right

    They send a C&D, one private server goes down, another one crops up a day or a week later. That's the whole point of disseminating things to the broader public. Private servers are not some new concept. We have done this dance before. There's seriously no need to go to bat for this weird control freak, I promise you.
