For any fans who are sad about its 2012 death, I urge you to read about this. Either way, it's a crazy thing to imagine. The gist of it is this:

CoH gets shut down in 2012

A game dev leaks the original source code, complete with every player's character data, etc.. to an Argie named Leo, hoping that he will release it even further into the internet, therefore preserving the game.

instead, Leo uses the source code to open a private server and keeps it top secret.

Leo also ends up being the mod of the CoH subreddit, then proceeds to secretly sabotage other attempts at creating private servers, as well as banning and stifling any discussion surrounding private servers.

Leo is also involved in a project that was "attempting" to create a private server from scratch, all the while being the admin of a super secret, fully functional version of the game, and taking thousands of dollars from unsuspecting fans of the game.

he does this for 5/6 years, all of this comes to light only a few days ago.

The good news is, after a couple days of intense and hugely scandalous evidence surmounting, the fella held a public forum on a discord where he let somebody in good faith check out the behind the scenes to show he doesn't possess anybody's personal info of any kind. And there are talks of releasing the code!

Also, I don't think a lot of the info in that summary is correct. Especially the part about the dev hoping Leandro would release the info into the web.

There's a server up now with 4 public shards.

Some homies and I are rolling shit on the Indomitable Server if anyone else is playing. Idk how long it will hold my interest.

whats the point of hosting a server if it's to keep it super secret? Isn't the point of a mmo to have like massive amounts of players?

These new ones aren't secret. I wanna say the other one was secret because if it wasn't, it would have likely been shut down and the owners would have faced legal action. I'm not sure what makes this one any different - but rumors are that the hosts are in talks with ncsoft, and its looking promising on their end. I am not super in the loop in that regard, though.

Tequila launcher I think - check the CoH reddit for more info, should be some set-up guides.

Here's the pvp discord https://discord.gg/YMknNA
