Massively OP’s guide to Valentine’s Day 2018 across the MMORPG-verse

Is your Valentine’s day about love, friendship, or free candy from mom? In MMORPGs, it’s about questing, murder, and free loot! So, yeah, kinda the same. Enjoy Massively OP’s guide to this very pink not-a-holiday across the MMORPG genre – and some not-quite-MMOs too!

Allods Online – The Love Festival returns! Hunt down Lubava Charova in Novograd or Lyubov Serdechkina in Nezebgrad to begin.

ArcheageArcheAge hopes you’ll “Find True Love” in the events kicking off today.

Atlas Reactor – Mad Love is back through February 20th.

Black Desert – “Flirtatious” decorations already festoon the gameworld, with the Sweet Valentine event kicking off today and sweet treats too.

Blade & Soul – NCsoft gets the award for “best/worst event name of the year” for Blade & Soulmate 2018. So bad it’s good. The events are live through March 16th, with raid quests and limited-time costume and weapon rewards, including a flamingo on a stick, and I am not even making that up.

Chronicles of Elyria – Soulbound has a V-day gifting solution for you if you’re sick of sending flowers! Spoilers: It includes whips.

Dark Age of Camelot – Love is in the air until February 19th in this classic MMO, which see sthe return of three themed questions: A Matter of the Heart, Keeping Company, and Valentine’s Traditions.

DC Universe Online – Even supers need love. “The Star Sapphires are again making an effort to rekindle the love lost in Gotham City.” Expect new feats and quests to boot.

Destiny 2 – Crimson Days are live as of February 13th.

EVE Online – The Guardians Gala went live yesterday with the full February release.

EverQuest IIEQII can’t pick a side. The Shard of Hate Public Quest launched on February 13th for those of you with evil in your hearts. The lovey-dovey Erollisi Day is here until the 20th!

Final Fantasy XI – Valentine’s day in maintenance mode pretty much looks like Valentine’s day in a live MMO, yeah? Valentione’s Day is live in this classic until February 21st.

Final Fantasy XIV – Valentione’s Day is live in Square’s younger MMORPG too. The event “offers enamoured Eorzeans the chance to help out Lisette de Valentione and her retinue in exchange for a series of in-game items including housing furnishings and mounts” – but only for a few days this week.

Fortnite – PvE players were supposed to find a new themed questline, along with plenty of themed hero cosmetics, including a new crossbow. Pew pew. Unfortunately, it didn’t happen.

GTAO – Vrooooooom. Cars and love. It’s actually a little bit bizarre how into V-day this game gets. “The Vapid Hustler is a shining example of what’s possible when old-world glamour slinks up next to the modern muscle car and asks, ‘My garage or yours?’

Guild Wars 2 – ArenaNet is collecting stories of friendship!

Lineage IIL2 is throwing a positively massive wedding contest. It’s too late right now to sign up, but the winners should be announced today!

Yepper. It’s true. BnS is offering Flamingo on a stick weapons for Valentines. Now, I don’t condone such non sequiturs generally, but it sure is funny. Lol.

Here is a Destroyer’s ax for example.

Creativerse has a free Forgotten City bundle, a heart shaped box and love potions.

Just a sale this year in SWL, no event… which is super lame considering it’s the game’s first valentines day… AND they already have events they could have pasted in from TSW.

from smashing your head on the bugs to finding out just how much your spouse/SO has taken out of your kids’ college fund and or retirement to spend on it sounds like romantic bliss! XD
