The Stream Team: The MOP team dives into Guild Wars 2’s Path of Fire

The power of Guild Wars 2’s expansion Path of Fire is so great, it brought Massively OP’s Bree, Tina, and MJ together! That’s right, all three are going to be exploring the expansion goodness that just launched today. And with this trio, there’s bound to be a few shenanigans, plenty of hijinks, and maybe even a little folderol, so join us live at 2:00 p.m. for the fun. MJ even made a new Norn ranger for the occasion.

What: Guild Wars 2

EverQuesting: Is EverQuest II in a downward spiral?

Are we witnessing the death throes of EverQuest II? Of the whole EverQuest franchise? These questions have been at the forefront of my mind lately. Today’s EverQuesting started as a guide to EQII’s expansion prelude event, but I kept coming back to these questions. (The guide will come next week!)

Yes, I know that there are folks who have cried that EQ and EQII have been dying or all-but dead for years — and Next and Online Adventures are already deceased and buried. Yet during those years we’ve still seen some life in the first two games. They have persevered!

But now, I feel like I am witnessing the franchise’s final breaths. Me, the eternal optimist; me, who subsists on hope. And I started losing that hope because Daybreak’s actions lately appear to indicate that there’s no love left for one of my all-time favorite games, EQII. Between less dev interaction, less content, less communication, and just less enthusiasm for these two titles — yet a preponderance of attention on others — it’s hard to hold onto hope. At no other time has it felt as if Daybreak was turning its back on and all but abandoning the IP that gave it life more than it does right now. The IP that still has many fervent fans. My final two straws? The lack of any exposure at PAX West and the lack of enthusiasm for this year’s expansions.

The Stream Team: Taking on the Blue Mountain bear in Secret World Legends

PAX West delayed the exodus of Massively OP’s MJ from Blue Mountain in Secret World Legends. There’s also a matter of an undead bear that needs a beating before she can go. That means she’s got to rustle up a few folks to face that monstrosity. Then maybe she’ll finish off those last investigation missions and finally move on to the bright light and suffocating head of Scorched Desert. Tune in live at 5:00 p.m. to see who beats whom between MJ and the bear.

Wednesday the 13th could be your lucky day. Do you want a SMITE Ultimate God Pack? We bet you do! And we bet you’d be fine just watching Massively OP’s MJ hang out on the gods screen and talk for an hour for a chance to win one. After all, this pack gives you all the gods as well as 1500 gems. (On top of that, it refunds any favor you spent on gods previously.) Of course, MJ won’t really do that to you — she will actually dive into the Corrupted Arena again, so there will be plenty of SMITE action and plenty of death counter feeding. Join us live at 9:00 p.m. for your chance to win the Ultimate God Pack she brought home from PAX West just for you.

The Stream Team: A look at life after the big ArcheAge server merges + giveaway

It finally happened: Massively OP’s MJ was uprooted from her ArcheAge server of over three years and tossed onto a new world with a number of other servers’ refugees. She pointedly ignored the big land rush; losing her homes was quite a blow. In fact, losing her homes is the one thing that may keep her from regular play from here on out. Has this move improved things? How populated do things look now? Tune in live at 8:00 p.m. for a look at the post-Evolution landscape (and a chance to win a Trion code for loot in all the games, including Midnight Kitsu in ArcheAge).
