Tree of Life has a way for you to earn real gold with Bitcoin-like Boboo Coins

Fancy starting your own Scrooge McDuck gold vault so that you can go swimming in your riches every afternoon? You’re going to need to start somewhere, my friend, and your first step is to play Tree of Life.

The cartoony sandbox is running a bitcoin-inspired promotion with new “Boboo Coins” that drop in game from mining (naturally). These coins show up randomly and there are only a limited supply of them in the game, period. The challenge here is to find and sell as many Boboo Coins as possible within an undefined time limit.

The reward? The studio promised to mail an actual “real gold” Boboo Coin to the house of the player who tops the sales. The press release was a little vague as to the weight or worth of this coin, but still, that would be a pretty great prize to get, no?

We’re taking a time-machine back through our MMO coverage, month by month, to hit the highlights and frame our journey before we head into 2018!

August was dominated by several competing stories that just wound throughout the whole month: The Secret World’s TV series venture as produced by Johnny Depp, the full reveal of Guild Wars 2’s Path of Fire expansion, and Star Citizen’s multiple delays and demos.

We also saw launches for World of Warcraft’s ArgusElder Scrolls Online’s Horns of the ReachLord of the Rings Online’s Mordor, ARK: Survival Evolved, LawBreakers, Fragmented, and Tree of Life. And if you squint, you can just see the first inklings that PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds was already taking off.

Massively OP’s Winter Holiday 2017 guide!

It’s that time of year again where the airwaves of certain radio stations are clogged with the same songs from the 1950s, television broadcasts are filled with specials about the nature of giving, and dozens of people exclaim that Die Hard is a holiday film due to its timeframe.

So, where will you hang your gaming hat this year? Probably in much the same place as usual, but if you’re curious about which games are running which events, we have you covered with our roundup just below.

Tree of Life’s winter festival blows in holiday cheer

Even newer MMOs like Tree of Life are getting in on the holiday spirit this Christmas season. The team recently kicked off its winter festival starring Santa Booboo. Just roll with it.

The festival has plenty of rewards to chase, such as a winter tree outfit and a red-nosed deer mount. Players should find the world more holly and jolly, thanks to the transformation of carts into sleds and an epidemic of Christmas trees and elves across the land.

The December 1st update also integrated Google’s translation services for player chat, added a whisper command, and improved the Warden Tree system.

Halloween events across the MMORPG verse, 2017 edition

Hey, you. Yeah, you, dude leeching candy from the bucket you bought “for the neighborhood kids.” And you, lady still trying to decide between “Princess Leia” and “lazy zombie” for your costume (go Leia, duh). Put all that aside and get into some MMOs instead! Halloween is only one night in real life, but in MMORPGs, it goes on for days or even weeks. Some studios will probably even forget to turn it off! Others will let you run around with a flaming pumpkin head mask for all eternity!

Here’s what we’re looking at this year for Halloween across the MMORPG verse.

Tree of Life raises a beer to a party ghost

To beer, the cause of, and solution to, all of life’s problems! This ancient proverb is the current maxim of Tree of Life, which is currently holding a special Boboo Boboo Beer Fest event for the otherwise sober and responsible players.

The Boboo Boboo Beer Fest (say that five times fast) is running through October 9th and involves players finding a party ghost for a group selfie. Yes, we just wrote “party ghost” and we are sticking with that. There are prizes for both individuals and guilds who take the best picture or video.

“Mr. Boboo is in a party mood and carries his festive vibes across mountains, deserts and forests,” some lucky sod got to write for an official post. “The tipsy ghost wanders now through the lands to announce the beginning of the BobooBoboo Beer Fest! With some tasty barley brew, ginger bread and boar sausages he invites you to share some good times and become friends!”

Tree of Life recently instituted a skin system to allow characters to wear “funny and weird costumes” for the purpose of education and jocularity.

Tree of Life adds ghost archers to ruin gankers’ day

Now that the fantasy sandbox Tree of Life has officially launched, what’s next for this game? The answer is obvious: ghost archers. Did you even doubt it?

The team is adding these spectral bowmen to protect lowbies in the early zones from unwarranted ganking: “The ghost guardians for each gaction are patrolling around the novice areas and attack the adventurers from their enemy factions. The successors of your factions are now protecting their descendants.The guardians are invincible, shooting strong arrows. Note that those guardians go through the walls and the buildings since they are ghosts.”

Now that makes us want to be able to play as the ghost archers, so let’s make that happen, developers. Yesterday’s patch also added more animals out in the field, a new level 5 arrow tower, a longer cooldown for resurrection, and some graphical improvements.

Good trees, bad trees, and Crowfall’s siege testing

Two of Crowfall’s big tests are finally converging as one, bringing the limited siege test into the larger and more persistent campaign maps. So what does this mean for testers?

Now players can engage in limited-window sieges around keeps in campaigns, attempting to wrest one for their own faction and protect it as long as possible. To claim a keep, a faction will have to plant a Tree of Life (good tree), which will protect that fortification until it comes under siege by a force that plants a Banewood Tree (bad tree) outside its walls. By utilizing this structure for siege mechanics, the team hopes to keep the process orderly and understandable.

With the pieces falling into place, Crowfall’s testing schedule looks like it’s becoming more traditional going forward. “Remember that our ultimate goal is to start our first official campaign,” the team said. “While we realize that campaign will likely be unpolished (it’s inevitable at this phase of development), we are putting every effort into making it as an enjoyable as possible.”

Tree of Life launches and goes ‘beyond the journey’

Last week, colorful sandbox MMO Tree of Life slipped the bonds of early access and launched itself into the wild blue yonder of live operation. If you played it a while back, you may be startled to see how much it’s changed in the meantime. In fact, the team has subtitled the game “Beyond the Journey” to indicate that this is almost a completely rebuilt game.

The release version of Tree of Life includes the warden tree building system, guilds, factions, the mastery system, a better UI, more mounts (ever want to ride a chicken for some reason?), more decorations, and the new Clay Engine 2 game client.

The team re-released an official launch trailer but also threw in a nice new wrap-up video of the early access period to thank the community for all of its help. You can view both of these after the jump.

Betawatch: Camelot Unchained is rapidly approaching beta (August 18, 2017)

The wait for the Camelot Unchained beta has been long and arduous in the way that only “just sit around and wait” can possibly be, but it’s almost here. It’s going to happen! We don’t know quite when, but we do know that we’ve got a new guiding principles document for beta. So it’s coming very soon.

Meanwhile, we also bid farewell to both Tree of Life and Fragmented, as both have launched this week.

More beta news? We’ve got to be honest, it’s been a quiet week… but this stuff might all tickle you along the way just the same.

But is there a list? Yes, of course there’s a list. It’s right down below, and while it may be trimming down slightly it still has no shortage of entries. Perhaps you’d like to let us know about things we may have missed in the comments? Either phase changes or new titles, we’re flexible.
