‘City of Heroes’ players buy farewell dinner for developers

In light of Paragon Studios closing its doors, fans raised money to buy the team dinner.

In light of Paragon Studios closing its doors, effectively putting an end to the massively multiplayer online game City of Heroes, fans raised money to buy the team dinner.

In just three hours, the community pooled together $1,000. User and fundraising organizer TonyV had heard of a restaurant the team frequented and rallied the community into donating.

"We want to express our gratitude for building the world in which our imaginations have lived," TonyV wrote in the fundraising forum post.

"They've provided an unprecedented level of support and interactivity over the years. They've talked to use, listened to our feedback, even socialized with us, all while providing a game that has an incredible level of innovation and fun."

According to Massively, fans are also working on in-game events to show their support. Two joint task force runs will take place on September 20th at 9 p.m. EDT and September 22nd at noon EDT.
