Massively OP’s MMORPG Valentine’s Day 2016 roundup

If you’re one of those gamers who needs goofy real-world holidays in your MMOs, then this weekend is for you, as sappy pink hearts, chocolate candy crappies, and excessively revealing cosmetic lingerie is about to invade the online gaming space. Here are just a few of the events that will be plaguing us during the Valentine’s Day festivities!

Blade & Soul – You’ll be grinding for roses. Pants are optional.

World of Warcraft – Love is in the air, but not until February 15th.

Trion’s Rift has no V-day event with items for the holiday or fun activities.  

They are simply selling mount lock boxes that will give players a chance to win a mount and a sure opportunity to pour money in their coffers.  There are no V-day quests, activities, fun little auras (as stand alone purchases) to put on your character or anything like that.

It’s ironic that a screenshot Kyra’s Potion Shack in TERA is used for this article, considering that:

1) Kyra’s Potion Shack isn’t remotely a valentine’s event in TERA.

2) TERA’s actual valentine’s event couldn’t be done this year because it’s broken with the latest builds of the game.

Star Wars: The Old Republic – No Valentine’s Day event, but you can buy heart-shaped speeders in the cash shop for $33 each.

camelotcrusade  I know exactly what you mean.  Pantless was the in thing for my companions not that long ago.  In fact, I got to Zakuul so fast, I think some of them didn’t get their pants on at all.  Could that be why they never came looking for me?

“You’ll be grinding for roses. Pants are optional.”

That was cute, though I think pants are always optional.  A couple minutes in any newbie zone, near a bank, or by an auction house will confirm this.  And in certain games, by mailboxes.

Firefall, amid their continuing issues, added 2 new Warpaints, 2 armor patterns, and a Valentine themed LGV that can jump.

I’m still surprised no game’s taken up the bitter singles cause and made an anti-Valentine’s Day event where they all grouse about it being total consumerist bullshit. Not that I celebrate it at all, last year we got drunk and ate cheese with our friends and this year I think I’ll be romantically picking out cabinet paint swatches. I enjoy the goofy hearts and roses and housing decor in my MMOs, but it’s just another weekend IRL.

Valentine’s Day is the one day of the year I’m going to openly and unreservedly bash SWG. :P

Saint Valentine was brutally beaten to a state of near-death and then had his head cut off.

Let’s have some of that, not this soppy chocolate and flowers horse dung.

Qarran I think it’s worth noting that in Korea, female gamers also dress up their character sexy, whether they play male or female. Reason being is they view it as a fantasy game, something they wish they could do (whether it be because they are self-conscious, grew up with traditional parents, etc etc.) They don’t view the game as “telling them how to dress” they view it as “If I could I would dress this way sometimes/more often.”

Well, in BnS it there is no middle ground.  It’s either so damn cute you want to cry stuff for the Lyns or so damn sexy you forget you are playing an MMO.

Case in point?  V-days female outfits:  crumpled up man’s shirt with rolled up sleeves and some sexy underwear just barely visible.  After a romantic night, no time to dress in the morning before running out to kill Poggles.  Oh, but she did find some sexy high heels as she grabbed her lover’s shirt on the way out.  Lol!

Scarlet Blade is still a thing? I’m almost tempted to reinstall it for a few giggles.

Perfect Hero I was really surprised not to find much for AA when so many of the other Trion games were doing a full-on event!
