This year, we’re taking a time-machine back through our MMO coverage, month by month, to hit the highlights and frame our journey before we head into 2017.
February, abbreviated as it was, was still a packed news month for MMOs.

We also saw ArcheAge and RIFT try to outdo each other with player-alienating business model changes. Meanwhile, we were still scoping out the brand-new Blade & Soul.
February was also the month the site got a much-needed back-end upgrade. Read on for the whole list of our favorite stories that month!
