Good news for anyone wishing they could personally ask the City of Heroes team questions. NCsoft has decided to bring back the "Ask a dev" feature due to recent expansions of the NorCal team that works on City of Heroes. The very first developer who gets to be pelted with questions is a Mr. Bruce Harlick, who happens to be a senior designer on the team. If you've got any burning questions about upcoming changes/improvements to missions, storylines or their supporting systems head on over to the official forums to ask.
We suppose you could ask about stuff that's not related to his job, but you're much less likely to see an answer if you do. Then again, if you were to ask something completely out of left field, he may just respond out of pure curiosity. We know that we probably would!
