MMO Week in Review: March 1, 2015

    
12

Were you too busy gaming this week to pay attention to MMO news? Get caught up every Sunday evening with Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review!

After a bit of teasing, Game of Thrones-esque PvP MMORPG Crowfall launched its Kickstarter this week. We pitted it against its closest rival, interviewed its lead devs about their plans, and gave our own impressions of the first big game announcement of the year.

Read on for a look at the rest of this week’s top MMO stories.

And don’t forget that our Stream Team is back!

I know I’m late to the party, but good to see Massively back.

…though it seems to be happening with great frequency for the last week. I’m not so sure it’s the bug that irritating me, rather lack of any tangible work around client side. As I would really like to see all the comments in their unfettered context. Sorry for being a bother about this. :(

ManastuUtakata Unfortunately, it’s a random Livefyre bug and not something we can fix. :x

Massively-that-was did try to establish it’s own forum….but to my understanding it sorta fizzled due to lack of reader interest, and ended up being round filed. :(

I really like this “Week in Review” method of getting folks caught up to what they missed during the week. Thank you for doing that!

Celestial ManastuUtakata Yeah I get the 50 comment thing too. It’s really weird and annoying. I’ve also noticed firefox and crhome have their own unique little glitches, like firefox will randomly compact conversations and the little – symbol wont open them.

It’s like livefyre has a mind of it’s own and it’s a total douche bag.

ManastuUtakata I can’t say I have that exact issue, but I do have an issue where, sometimes (not always), replies to comments in a long thread (50+ comments), do not show unless I hit “Show More Comments.”  Then they’ll magically appear above where I’m reading, so I have to scroll back and re-read the whole thread to make sure I didn’t miss anything.  It’s annoying.

Livefyre is a buggy mess, and Disqus isn’t any better.  I know the Massively Overpowered staff do not want forums as they’re afraid it would break up the site.  I understand that.  However, I sent in a suggestion a little while ago to make forums where only staff can start new topics, and for each new article posted on the main site to link to a new topic on the forums where people can comment.  In addition, Massively OP readers can friend each other and send each other PMs.  It would be the best of both worlds, IMO.

Are you guys ever plan to address the bug where the readable comments don’t really go past 50, and the option to view them the “Oldest” filter doesn’t work? Or is this one of those “it’s only with your computer Uta, you’re on you own” SoL type deals. Because this is really getting annoying fast. :(
