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 2019!
November was pretty much a dumpster fire of epic proportions. Blizzard kicked off the month by largely bombing BlizzCon and seeing ActiBlizz stock plummet, thanks in part to the Diablo Immortal disaster. Yes, we have phones.

Read on for the whole list from November of this past year!
