    No problem. Yeah, I noticed that some of the images were missing....not sure why they weren't captured. You might try a different date, they might have made a better capture on a different day. Oddly, the last time that they had taken a snapshot was in 2014, but there were some other dates they had taken snapshots of the site prior to that.

    This morning I was able to play SHSO, but just now I was going to log in again, but heroup.com is redirecting to marvel heroes signup page. Can anybody else confirm?

    I am guessing the end has finally come

    Thank you everyone! Why don't we take this moment to tell how you met SHSO? I first saw it back in 2011, when I was 10. I was goofing around on Youtube when I saw Mrgamerus SHSO ''First Look video''. I quickly got into the computer, and dowload the game files. I started playing with Cyclops only, as my parents would not let me pay Membership yet (Good luck getting Spider-Man just by using the Roulette). I remember the friendly environment the game had. I can also recall sending Friend Requests to everyone who had a cool hero. As everyone in the server were either playing as Falcon, Thing, Ms. Marvel, or Cyclops. I loved playing missions with people who had Spider-Man or Daredevil. Hoping someday I would own them. I remeber the Hellicarrier, and spending hours thinking about all the rooms I would get once I had money. Hoping to get gold on the Roulette, unlocking Daredevil and 80's Storm by doing the challenges, following each and every update. You guys remeber the 2013 Winter drawing contest? The livestream where they confirmed Iron Fist (I was following that Live just in hopes for the confirmation of Iron Fist)? The Squad Time episodes? God I will miss this game, I will certainly do.

    Thank you Gaz, thank you for everything you've done. You were responsible for my first interaction on a Online game. And I hope the best of sucess for you on Marvel Heroes.

    Thank you everyone, I hope we can keep the thread by talking about new Marvel movies, games, series, etc... I hope the best for you guys also.

    I hope you all have a wonderful day.

    Ah, I learned about SHSO from the news of CBR as it was back then. Our of curiosity, I signed up for an account within the first week or so, then promptly forgot it until I reuturned home from a two-week stay in South Korea in December 2012. So it was in January 2013 that I actually started playing, and the Christmas decors were still up. Back then it was still playable on my 2008-era netbook with the original Intel Atom CPU. For months I played for free and then took the plunge, then when the 12-month offer with Iron Spider and Giganto was announced I was among the first to grab the opportunity. I didn't play with other CBR'ers a much as some of you have, but still had my fair share.

    I'll have to add that my second account, which I created so that I could play against myself to complete the card game challenges and then achievements, was very successful. I said it before, I believe it is the "winningest" account, having first won a Classic Wolverine code with two weeks membership from MrGamesRus, then the Superior Spider-Man Facebook contest, winning Spider-Woman again on FB and then being SHSO's last Twitter winner with Scarlet Witch, and then one of three co-winners of the War Machine Mk II FB contest; it accumulated 50 days total of membership (7 weeks plus one day bonus because of a shop glitch) enabling me to buy all the agent heroes and sidekicks plus EotE Spidey's gold badge, my squad level for that was in the 5700 range and I had 16 level 40 players.

    I'll miss the game and the active discussion we had here as well as the codebreaker reports and the suggestions for new heroes.

    I had discovered SHSO in Sept 2012. City of Heroes had recently announced their plans to shut down, and I was looking for a game to replace it. I had encountered info about Marvel Heroes, but the beta was not yet open (and a few months later when I finally was able to play the beta, my PC was much to slow for it to be playable). I also stumbled across SHSO, and I was hesitant to sign up at first as it appeared to be a kids game. But since it was free to play, I had nothing to lose but time, so I gave it a try. It didn't take long to realize that the game was quite enjoyable for both kids and adults. From the start, I enjoyed mostly playing the missions. The card game I usually avoided....it could be fun when I was in the mood, but dealing with solving problems all day long with my job, I didn't usually feel applying the concentration necessary to playing the card game. I just wanted something easy and carthartic , and playing the missions was it.

    In the early days my focus was to play the challenges. Like Ray, I had created an alternate account so I could more easily completed the card challenges. In those days, it was harder to earn gold to get the premium heroes, so I also used the second account to get more gold by completing the challenges there.

    I stumbled onto this CBR thread around the time Fin Fang Foom was released as a craftable sidekick. Gaz hadn't supplied much info about crafting....they were especially lacking on letting us know which missions would award which crafting parts. So after googling around a bit, I found what I was looking for here, and I have been a frequent visitor ever since!

    BTW, I did eventually try Marvel Heroes again once I got a more powerful PC. I started splitting my time between that and SHSO once Hero Up had started slowing down in their development. While I enjoyed SHSO more, I find MH is enjoyable also, although a little overly-complex to master. I understand they are in the process of simplifying their character skill tree, so that's a step in the right direction. It is free to play (with premium stuff to buy if you so desire), so if you are looking for a game to satisfy your craving for a Marvel game, I would recommend giving it a try.

    I keep waiting for a last ride, too bad the end came too soon. I started playing in April 2012 and keep doing it daily, just missing a couple of days until last year, no other game like it.

    I made an album with some of my favorite screencaps, you can only upload 3 here: http://imgur.com/a/QAZdy

    If you're all in the mood for nostalgia, you can check out SHSO's YouTube channel while it is still up at https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCXv...IUbiwFxFN7C7-Q

    Here are a few pics from my library from over the years.

    In this one, I was at work talking with my wife on the phone and I heard my son playing this in the background. So I logged in from work, found him and we did a mission together. I could hear him yelling "Mom!! Mom!! I'm doing a mission with brown Wolverine!!!" He never knew it was me



    Here my son figured out a way to break Villainville:
