I am planning to drop my subscription to Champions Online. I am not sharing this because I am angry and want everyone to know it before I leave. My main reason for leaving is that I am in college and can't really justify the money and time I spend on the game.
That being said, I do have some disappointment with the game. The biggest disappointment is the unmet potential of the game, and the game has a lot of potential. It has an interesting campaign back story, the playing mechanics works pretty well, and the character creator is fun, but it feels like Champions is an unwanted step-child when it comes to game development. I've been playing one and off for a few years, and except for the occasional holiday event and the addition of a new beginners adventure. Nothing really have been done to improve play. Further, there are mechanics that serve no purpose for which should be eliminated or for which a purpose should be found. The perk system is the primary example, and I have read more complaints by otherwise dedicated players than I can add here.
I am not saying that because I hope Champions Online drops dead without me. I want it to thrive, and if my money and time restraints improve so that I can return, I hope to find the game going strong when/if I return.
In closing, I have mostly enjoyed the game, but the game and the players who play deserve more care and attention than it is currently receiving.
Thank you, all, and I hope to be around again sometime.
