I'd rather see city of heroes 2 than have the devs waste time updating content in a game with and an old and frankly boring engine but whateva........

Basically, what the letter says is "We prefer working on new stuff and will only revamp old stuff or fix bugs when absolutely necessary."

The problem with their approach to old content -- which is pretty much the same as almost every other MMO -- is that it leaves the world feeling completely static. It doesn't evolve and so the players feel as meaningless as they actually are.

This becomes even worse in a game like CoX: one that practically demands multiple alts thanks to its stellar character creation system. So not only do I feel that Paragon's answer is shortsighted, it's actually contrary to the demands of their own game.

@aurickle:
That, and it often leads to a particularly toxic version of RL urban sprawl, where all the best new content is out on the expanding rim of the world while what was once the core - and the part that new arrivals often see first - is a neglected, shoddily-built slum.

Let's face it, with bank and tip missions people need a bigger incentive to actually play the actual content that has been there from day one....
