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!

Undeniably, the biggest story this week – and it’s even on track to be one of the biggest of the year – is the story of how a bizarre altercation on Twitter wound up generating a massive flamewar across the MMOverse, landing on the front page of every gaming site, and cutting loose two ArenaNet employees from the Guild Wars 2 team.

But there was more to the week besides the still-smoldering dumpster fire! We got sweet news about Warframe from TennoCon (it’s coming to the Switch!), Camelot Unchained briefly delayed its beta one phase, and Defiance 2050 rolled into its launch head start.
