The MOP Up: How long would you last in your MMO? (October 4, 2015)


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 a webseries where gamers end up living in their MMO, an accidental banning in Neverwinter, an MMORTS being developed by a single person, and more!

New Games and Testing
