The MMO industry moves along at the speed of information, and sometimes we’re deluged with so much news here at Massively Overpowered that some of it gets backlogged. That’s why there’s The MOP Up: a weekly compilation of smaller MMO stories and videos that you won’t want to miss. See any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!

This week we’ll look at the incredible account of a gamer who donated hundreds of items of Blizzard memorabilia to a museum, marvel at castle sieges in Archlord 2, give you a heads-up on SWTOR’s expansion, and more!

Patches

  • Archlord 2: The Season of Siege patch came out last week with the new castle siege mode. Players can also take advantage of a free level jump until September 15th to instantly boost their characters from 20 to 54 with the click of a button. [patch notes]
  • AD2460: Yesterday’s patch added space¬†stations, three new frigates, and an UI overhaul. [patch notice]
  • Guns of Icarus: The alliance mode prototype came out this past Friday.
  • The Secret World: Among Update 1.12.1’s changes are a couple of new vendors that should make life with augments a little easier. [patch notes, thanks to Nordavind for the tip!]
  • Dark Age of Camelot: Exciting things are afoot in DAoC, as the game’s Agramon zone is being renamed, new terrain textures are being installed, and the fifth chapter of the Otherworlds campain is slated to launch on September 8th. [newsletter]

Events

  • RuneScape: There’s a lot to do this month in RuneScape, including a new quest inside Castle Drakan, a fishing contest, the start of the 2015 Clan Cup, and a double XP weekend on September 25th.

While this is not the official trailer for Star Trek Online’s¬†New Dawn update, you can’t deny that Allen Cayen aka ZEF_STO hasn’t done a bang-up job making a fan video that is worthy of the Trek name. [Thanks to Chad for the tip!]

Order & Chaos 2: Redemption is coming very soon, and the developers want to show off two new features for the game: instant quests and solo dungeons. What do you think?
