The Daily Grind: Which MMORPG has the best April Fools’ Day prank this year? (2018)


April Fools’ Day this year has been pretty weird, given that MMO studios started rolling out their pranks and events in the middle of last week, and here we are on a holiday and a Sunday too. We’ve seen everything from Guild Wars 2’s sitting in chairs to the real-life theme park teased Black Desert. Pokemon teamed up with a noodle company. Elder Scrolls Online’s been running its Jester’s Festival for four days already!

I’m pretty fond of Path of Exile: Royale myself.

However, Conan Exiles Sword Ruler comes pretty close.

Best not leave WoW’s “official patch” notes off this list! They’re all micro-holidays for WoW’s BFA expansion, plus super realistic mounts.

Shroud of the Avatar begs you to not fear the reaper…

War Thunder’s devs invited everybody to play the quiet game.

Then there’s Final Fantasy XIV GO.

EVE is vowing “more balance” and a new ERIC to replace AURA.

Nic Cage comes to AQ3D:

Neverwinter’s Academy:



Here’s GW2’s:

Hungry for some Bless snacks?

Haha, I love this one: Closers introduces a new Closer character called Pane of Glass.

For our part, we’re enjoying a round of Massively OP Bingo, and as promised, we’re sharing the board down below so you can join in while answering today’s Daily Grind: Which MMORPG has the best April Fools’ Day prank this year?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

Thanks to everyone who sent these in! If you spy more as the day goes on, tuck ’em down in the comments!
