** The fans took the actual saying and ''ran'' with it when the announcement came down that NC Soft was discontinuing the game, fighting till the very end to try to change their minds. Players of the game, Heroes and Villains both, took this to extreme levels as they congregated in Atlas Park, straining the systems so much that the game created ''[[BeyondTheImpossible 33 instances]]'' of the area. Whole the majority of them eventually faded away, the instance called Atlas Park 33, aka AP 33, remained in existence till the game finally went down. AP 33 is still an event remembered with a bittersweet touch by fans and players of the game. It also doubled as both a CMoA and Tear Jerker for the players, characters, and game, and is covered in both sections.

Added DiffLines:

*NeverSayDie: Semi-averted. Characters did die in storylines, but it was rare for death to be a thing for players, as they had a teleporter that would take them away from a situation when their HP hit zero, preventing them from dying in-universe.

Despite the reported profitability of the game and its diehard fanbase, parent company NCSoft closed Paragon Studios and set the game's closure for 3 months after that to use the game's servers to run, variously, Guild Wars 2 and Wildstar (the latter of which inherited the servers' IP addresses). Paragon Studios was informed of the decision, which was effective immediately. [[http://na.cityofheroes.com/en/news/news_archive/thank_you.php It was announced]] to the players on August 31st, 2012 that Paragon Studios would be dissolved and that preparations for ''[=CoH's=]'' permanent retirement were already underway. The servers were shut down shortly after midnight Pacific Standard Time on December 1st, 2012.

* ManaBurn & ManaDrain: Electricity attacks tended to do one or the other. In particular a Blaster, Corruptor or Defender with both Short Circuit and Power Sink could completely drain the Endurance of a group of enemies in a very short period of time.
