The MOP Up: All news must go!


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, all news must go! It’s our biggest MOP Up yet, with over two dozen stories and videos from Guild Wars 2, WildStar, EverQuest II, World of Warcraft, Star Wars: The Old Republic, and more!

New Games

  • We Are Heroes: What do you get when you merge an RPG with a MOBA? This game, apparently. It will boast both a single-player campaign and a PvP MOBA mode. Expect to see it by the year’s end for mobile devices.
  • ELOA: Webzen signed an agreement with NPICSOFT to bring Elite Lord of Alliance (ELOA) to North America and Europe. The anime MMO will begin beta testing this fall for a late 2015 release. [Source: Webzen press release]
  • Mabinogi Duel: Mabinogi Duel, a digital card game based on the MMO property, has soft launched for both iOS and Android devices.
  • Call of Champions: Spacetime Studios’ “speed MOBA” is now out for mobile devices. Players can pick it up for free and play quick five-minute matches.
  • For the King: Looking for a challenge? Then check out this co-op roguelike, which sends small parties off to their doom as they quest through an “unforgivable” living world. The game has already shot past its Kickstarter goal and is asking for Steam Greenlight votes.
  • Order and Chaos 2: The sequel to the hit mobile MMO is now live worldwide for both Android and iOS devices. [Thanks to kyler and bensku for the tip!]

Events and Contests


  • Marvel Heroes: Patch 1.71 is in effect with lots of item drop rate changes and the start of another Odin’s Bounty event. [patch notes]
  • Final Fantasy XI: The game’s September 16th update added a new quest, tweaked a few zones and respawnrates, added high-tier battlefields, and made more chairs available for sitting. [patch notes]
  • Ultima Online: The newest patch for the Time of Legends expansion is on the test server with plenty of fixes and improvements. [patch notes]
