It’s been a day since NCsoft released their update, Issue 14: Architect, that mainly focused on Player Created content. Since yesterday, players have created over 20,000 mission arcs. More then the devs themselves have made already.

On the official City of Heroes website, a letter to the community was made stating that within 24 hours of the updates release, over 3800 story arcs have been created by both hero and villan players. Each consisting of 5 mission arcs a peice. This is more content than the devs have created in the City of Heroes entire existence.

Out of the over 20,000 arcs now available in game, 2,860 of them have been rated 5-stars by players, with only 582 rated at 1-star. This really shows the power and benefit of user created content within a game. Paragon Studios themself didn’t even expect this much success with it at first. They claimed they aimed high with the release of the update, but this release buzz and the outcome of the release even surpassed their expectations. The update has even been called revolutionary.

I might have to take a look at this game one day, it sounds pretty interesting. Any players of City of Heroes here?
