MMO Week in Review: Funcom’s elder MMORPGs (April 17, 2016)

Were you too busy gaming this week to pay attention to MMO news? Get caught up every Sunday evening with Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review!

Funcom’s older MMORPGs, Anarchy Online and Age of Conan, both made headlines this week with new patches: AO’s update added a controversial membership award scheme that’s annoyed some players, while AoC’s patch added a new arena but didn’t quite soften the blow for crafters, who were told that the crafting revamp promised years ago is not happening.

Meanwhile, it was a pretty good week for veteran MMORPGs, as RIFT celebrated its fifth anniversary, Guild Wars 2 prepped its spring patch, and Lord of the Rings Online’s latest update brought players to Pelennor Fields. You guys, I think they’re actually going to make it to Mordor for real.

Read on for the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions.

I got back to AoC to check how is population. And Crom was really packed. Also after not playing the game for 2 or more years I was surprised how much I enjoyed going through Tortage again and finishing every quest and achievement there. After “elves and gnomes” MMO its refreshing to try dark fantasy setting
