The MOP Up: SkySaga meddles with trading methods (October 9, 2016)


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 we take a look at how SkySaga is handling a particularly tricky issue regarding player trading and recipes. We’ve got that plus stories and videos from Pokemon Go, Landmark, Heroes of the Storm, and more, all waiting for you after the break!


New Games and Testing

  • Alchemia Story: Steparu gave a glowing recommendation to this Japanese anime mobile MMO, saying that it pulls great elements from Final Fantasy and Chrono Trigger.
  • League of Guessing: This weird, unofficial League of Legends fan game is making the jump from mobile to Steam that seems to be mostly trivia game with recycled art assets. Riot doesn’t seem to be in a hurry to take it down, though.
  • Necropolis: Here’s a newly launched title that might deserve a look! Necropolis is a “four-player co-op 3-D action roguelike.” Translation? “You gonna die.”
  • SkySaga: Issues with player trade has forced the team to keep trades of recipes between a player and vendors only. A dev blog explains why the change was necessary and what the team intends for players to do to obtain desired recipes while playing.
