One Shots: Elves have a weeding problem

You may hold Elves in high esteem, but the truth is that they are bonafide slackers. They live forever and can’t even be bothered to keep up with the weeding, so Elves make up some nonsense about communing with nature to cover for it while they binge on Netflix.

BalsBigBrother brings us our first pic of the day, this one from Lord of the Rings Online: “The one is from the High Elf starting instance, with this particular area the last part just before you are thrown out into the ‘real world’ of Middle Earth. Still amazed with how well the SSG folks do with their world building using such an old engine and saddened at times how divorced they often seem to be when it comes to actual player mechanics/fun.”

GPS mounts and zombies arrive in Dofus’ Towers of the Forgotten

Just call it “Dofus 2.0.”

The unique MMO’s December update is vastly adding onto and overhauling the core gameplay with its Towers of the Forgotten. When the update lands, players will have plenty to do and relearn, including the Lavasmith Dofus, 375 additional spells, more Omega levels, a renovated tactical mode, auto-pathing “GPS” mounts, an overhaul to the monster aggression system, and a storyline that ties into Wakfu’s third season.

Also, there are zombies. Good to know.

“After long plotting in the shadows, the Brotherhood of the Forgotten are now defying the gods in broad daylight,” the studio posted. “The players hold the future of the World of Twelve in their hands, just as Yugo and his friends do in Season 3 of the series Wakfu.”

Whatever happened to Global Agenda, The Realm Online, and Mabinogi?

Ever pause during your day and find yourself wondering, “Whatever happened to that game?” With hundreds upon hundreds of online titles these days, it’s surprisingly easy for MMOs to fall through the cracks and become buried as more aggressive or active games take the spotlight.

Well, every so often we here at Massively Overpowered find ourselves curious what has transpired with certain MMOs that we haven’t heard from in quite a while. Have we missed the action and notices? Has the game gone into stealth maintenance mode? What’s the deal? What has it been up to lately?

That’s when we put on our detective hats and go sleuthing. Today we look at what has been going on with Global Agenda, The Realm Online, and Mabinogi.

World of Warships recruits Tesla to fight the evil forces of Transylvania

Do you recall back in the early days of World of Warships, when the game looked like it would be a World War II naval simulator in the vein of World of Tanks? That lasted for approximately 10 hot minutes before the multiplayer title took a sharp right turn into fantasy, anime crossovers, science-fiction, and now, Halloween madness.

It’s probably better this way.

World of Warships fired off a new salvo of Halloween scenarios this week, sending player fleets to fight the evil forces of Transylvania, a region well-known for its naval supremacy. To help players in this effort, a task force of heroes such as Tesla (yes, that Nikola Tesla) and a fleet of specialized ships are available to play. Win the day, and you could be treated to unique Halloween flags and camos for your regular ships.

Wakfu introduces the rage-filled Ouginaks, revamps Enutrof class

Do you ever despair that all MMOs these days seem to contain the same watered-down, trope-encrusted classes and races? Fighter this and Elf that, the standard routine? Then do yourself a favor and head over to Wakfu, which has never heard of a normal name in its life.

The unique strategy MMO is introducing a new class this week called the Ouginak that sounds like a cross between a lovable puppy dog and a slavering werewolf. “Ouginaks are warriors and close-combat specialists,” the team posted. “Drawing on their Rage in fights, they can transform into Were-Ouginaks to harness their primal instincts.”

If that isn’t enough, Wakfu’s massive content update includes a huge overhaul of the Enutrof class, reworked the game’s combat mechanics, “rehabilitated” the Elite Riktus clan, and — what the heck — completely rebalanced all of the rest of the game’s classes. Guess the devs wanted to throw their community a bone?

Closers opens up its final alpha weekend to everyone

Here’s an intriguing option for your weekend plans: Pour a tall glass of cel-shaded anime combat and down it before the buzzer sounds for the end of an alpha.

Closers has opened up its final alpha weekend to any and everyone who would like to take a peek at this title before it barrels into beta and beyond. The test begins on Friday and, again, it’s completely public: “If you signed up, you will get access; if you sign up before the alpha weekend ends, you will get access; if you want to play with your friend, tell them to sign up, and THEY WILL GET ACCESS!”

Massively OP’s MJ took a look at Closers during PAX West, during which she got a crash course in this episodic anime MMO. “As unfamiliar as I was with the controller and all the controls, the game was easy to pick up and get into,” MJ noted.
