MMO Week in Review: Magic Legends seems less like an MMO by the day

Deception!

It was a weird and twisty week in the MMO genre: We talked about Magic Legends’ earth elemental butts and not-very-MMO-like state, discussed how WoW sucks at its Lovecraftian lore, debated devs using lore to justify bad decisions, embraced nostalgia with the MTV MMO, saw Crowfall raise a truckton more cash, and mused on the best MMOs of the decade. Plus, we rounded up all our 2019 awards and meta pieces for your entertainment!

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!

not every mmo has to be in scale with each other, sure its town hub with a few players here and there…but so is torchlight frontiers. and folkd still consider that an mmo. I for one am looking forward to this Lost Kingdoms meets Clash Royale meets MTG persona. Cant wait to sink my teeth into custom deck building on my mind mage :D even if it ends up not being an mmo altogther. im looking forward to an arpg where i dont spam the same attack over and over again. this “draw for spells” mechanic is something i find interesting and hope it blossoms well.

As someone who plays ARPGs often, they have shown nothing that makes me think they can compete with the depth of PoE. Unless they do so I won’t even entertain the idea of giving it a go.

I was really hoping for a new MMO/RPG for this title. Their reveal has decimated the interest I had in it.

I was a damn fool for thinking we’d actually be getting a new MMO-scale game in 2020.
