On this week’s show, Bree and Justin wade into the January wilds as they pull together stories about Anthem’s (unsurprising) popularity, the end of a long-running MMO, plans for the EverQuest franchise, and post-apocalyptic fun (or not).

It’s the Massively OP Podcast, an action-packed hour of news, tales, opinions, and gamer emails! And remember, if you’d like to send in your own letter to the show, use the “Tips” button in the top-right corner of the site to do so.

Oh, yeah, the other thing I wanted to comment on– I am in the audience that the overly complicated Eastern MMOs are aiming at. I put a stupid number of hours into BDO in 2018, and that is a game chock full o’ not-strictly-necessary systems. And I love that. To each their own, right?

I have no room to talk – I build spreadsheets to keep SWGL straight. Sometimes the complexity is more engrossing than anything else. :D

I don’t mind the kids in the background. That’s grownup life for ya.

I hope the EverQuest franchise is revived. (With something other than a mobile game, ffs.) I played UO before EQ, but EQ was my first real MMO love. I was excited for EQ Next, and we all know how that turned out– it disappeared into vapor and disappointment.

I’m interested in WoW Classic, but, I agree with the question of long-term purpose of the game. I think it’ll be fun the first week or so, but I’m not going to keep grinding away with no clear future to speak of.
And, I’m not interested in a Progression Server, either.

I think I’m mostly interested in WoW Classic just to see what the fuss is about, with lots of people at once, be part of it.
I never played the old WoW really, so I’m curious of what it’s all like. I’ve only tasted it in private servers a little.

That’s the thing; I did play Vanilla and I know it won’t be the same, it can’t.
So, you have more reason to play it than I probably do…but, I’m weak, so I’m sure I’ll re-sub and give it a try when the time comes.

I suspect Bree was busy being an International Woman of Mystery.

For Ragnarok 2 the loss of entire eu playerbase, because warp portal opted for that as a reaction to GDPR, sure played a role
