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. Seen any good MMO news? Hit us up through our tips line!

This week GTA Online players got to play a new ammo-limited mode, two Lineage games were announced for mobile, Eternal Crusade streamers made fun of their own mistakes, Hearthstone talked about basic cards, and more!

Everyone messes up, especially on camera. The Eternal Crusade folks compiled their oopsies from streams and put together this funny blooper reel:

Did you hear about that Hearthstone gamer who played the game using only voice commands? I am always in awe of such level of geekery. When you’re done processing that, check out this dev video talking about basic cards:

The best thing Blizz could do to ease new players in is to cut the rl money price of the original set and gradually discount the price of the sets after it.  As a new player I don’t even see how they could make it to rank 20.
