Summary: Trust the nearly 60% of the players who quit the game in the last 3 months. Fun games don’t have to offer incentives to get people to play, people WANT to play. Avoid this one like the plague folks.
Pros: NCSoft recently published their financial report for the first quarter of 2006. Revenue for City of Heroes/Villains is down 58% in the last three month period.

Cons: They have so thoroughly ruined the game that most of the people who still have accounts are not playing them (choosing just to let them expire rather than play). Last month they were offering incentives just to try and get people to log on once a week.
