Let’s just stipulate right here that Final Fantasy XIV knows how to freaking throw down a fan festival. Patch info, expansion info, juicy teases, no mobile junk, and no condescension. Oh yeah, and the devs are also the band. If you’ve missed Eliot’s in-person coverage of the Vegas event, you’ve missed out indeed.

Of course, other stuff also happened this week; for example, we saw big content drops for Black Desert, EverQuest II, Secret World Legends, ArcheAge, EVE Online, and TERA, plus Hellgate is back and Fallout 76 officially opened its doors. And we got a look at Path of Exile’s next big thing, and we’ll have more info from the Hi-Rez Expo this week too.

Read on to catch up with the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions today as every Sunday in Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review!

I feel like Square learned a vital lesson with FFXIV the Blizzard needs to learn with WoW/Diablo. If your fan/sub base do not align with your design decisions you probably shouldn’t double down on said decisions. Square faced their mistake and completely remade an MMO to correct it. Blizzard is doubling down on their mistakes and basically telling their fans to deal with it and it sucks.

That thing pictured for the header looks like what happens if a Gremlin and a Moogle decided to have a love child. /kupo :(

It is good to go after Blizzard – so you know what not to screw up.
