MJ Guthrie

Community Manager

When not immersed in her favorite virtual worlds, MJ can be found hanging out with her family, reading, coaching/playing sports, writing fiction, singing, and dabbling in graphic design (in random order, depending on mood and season). Her favorite part of MMOs? Observing the dynamics of virtual communities. That psychology degree has to come in handy somewhere, doesn't it?

MJ's Massively Overpowered adventures can be found many places: She investigates Secret World Legends/The Secret World's conspiracies in Chaos Theory, chronicles the EverQuest franchise in EverQuesting, practices survival in many sandboxes with The Survivalist, and livestreams for the Stream Team.

EverQuesting: A guide to EverQuest II’s Tinkerfest 2017

After a few years, it can be difficult for long-time EverQuest II players to get excited over the return of a festival; not only are there many festivals to keep track of, but most have been going on for numerous years. You can feel like you’ve seen and done all there is to one and might give little more than a cursory glance to check for a new item or two. And if little to nothing is done for a festival some year, it only exacerbates the problem. To spark interest and enthusiasm, Daybreak needs to tinker with the event formula each year to add something fresh beyond just a new reward or two. And tinker it did: Tinkerfest 2017 adds a whole new experience atop the regular fare, so even the oldest of veterans have reason to jump in and participate.

So what is new for Tinkerfest? (And what is Tinkerfest if you are new to it?) Here’s a guide to get on on the gnomish goodness before it leaves for another year; departure is set for early Thursday morning, August 3rd, at 2:59 a.m. EDT.

The Stream Team: Charging ahead into Chapter XII of SWTOR’s KOTFE

Having celebrated the conclusion of SWTOR’s Chapter XII on the dance floor, Massively OP’s Larry and MJ move on to Chapter XIII: Visions in the Dark. That doesn’t sound ominous at all, does it? Of course, it is fitting since MJ is in the dark as to what choices her Chiss Agent will make until the audience votes on them! Will the resistance grow, or run into resistance? Tune in live at 2:00 p.m. to continue the Choose My Alignment adventures in Knights of the Fallen Empire.

The Stream Team: Collecting clockwork spiders in EverQuest II’s Tinkerfest

It’s Tinkerfest time in EverQuest II, and Massively OP’s MJ wants to collect all the clockwork spiders! There’s a familiar, a limited-time combat pet, a pet, and a house item to collect, craft, and cuddle.

The Stream Team: Climbing plus construction can equal casualties in Conan Exiles

Life is different in Conan Exiles now that Massively OP’s MJ can climb to great heights — and so is death! It makes sense to have new ways to die in a survival game, no? But there are practical uses for climbing as well; for instance, it certainly makes work on her waterfall retreat easier. Touring a neighbor’s castle has inspired MJ, so she’ll be continuing on with some building projects today to see if she can any finish up. (Or maybe she’ll just start new ones!) Join us live at 4:00 p.m. to see how many deaths construction brings.

The Stream Team: Sightseeing in ARK’s Scorched Earth

As insane as Massively OP’s  MJ thinks selling expansions before a game even launches is, she did nab ARK’s Scorched Earth when it went on sale — mainly so she could show it off to you! Want to see the different dinos and environment that this map sports? Or maybe you just want to see MJ die of thirst from the scarcity of water. No matter the reason, tune in live at 12:00 p.m. for a tour through this different map.

The Stream Team: Watch to win Hand of the Gods: SMITE Tactics founders packs!

The Stream Team: Going back to school at Secret World Legends’ Innsmouth Academy

Two of the most awesome characters in Secret World Legends are at the Innsmouth Academy in the Savage Coast: Hayden Montag and Carter. Montag is pure awesomeness, from his social awkwardness to his ever-present blue gloves, and between her powers and her past, Carter is so intriguing.

The Stream Team: A Gigantic launch

Bye-bye beta! Gigantic is launching today, and Massively OP’s MJ is heading back in to play a few matches. The shooter has a fun take on on the genre, AI adding bosses to each team. Now that the game is also on Steam, MJ is switching to play there instead of on her Windows 10 laptop; unfortunately that means she’s losing access to the pack she had before, so she’ll have to choose whom to play from whoever is available. Which hero will she select? Join us live at 3:00 p.m. as OPTV‘s infamous Stream Team brings you a launch-day edition of…
