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!

Everyone knows that bards are the best class in MMOs. It’s a factual fact. And now that we’re all in agreement, because we totally are, I present to you Camelot Unchained’s bards. Three of them. And in true CU fashion, they are non-mirrored, distinct to each realm. This means you can roll at least three of them before people start looking at you weirdly and directing you to altoholics anonymous.

And speaking of CU fashion: You can now buy some.

Read on for the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions.

I will only say this ONCE.
Camelot Unchained won’t stand a chance against my self funded indie MMO Circle of Attack.
All they are trying to do, I have done 20 years ago. They will fail. I know these things.
A
game like this is impossible, you need to have the experience as an
indie game developer who already did it before. I offered them my help,
they didn’t respond. I asked them for accounability, where did the money
go, they didn’t respond. Now it’s personal. This means war. My fans are
hardcore gamers, they’d never touch a game that isn’t made by an
experienced indie dev fossil girl like me.
My self funded game, Circle of Attack MMO is already far superior than anything CSE has ever done.

I am glad to see massively talking about such an important subject. Bards are under appreciated by many but not CSE…. Want an instrument bard you got it…, want a singing bard…. You got it…, want one full of sarcasm with a little side of flute…. You got it.

I wont lie, Bard getting to use a guitar is at least 75% of the reason I’m going to buy  Final Fantasy Explorers.
