MMO Week in Review: One does not simply log into LOTRO


I mean you can try, but you can’t actually do it right now. It’s calling you like the ring calls Boromir, but you’re Gimli and it destroys your axe when you try to do anything to it. I… just want to play LOTRO.

And yet SSG’s five days of troubles are just one topic of note this week for MMO players. WoW dived into Shadowlands’ beta, Nexon continued its long string of sunsets and layoffs, No Man’s Sky’s Desolation went live, Elder Scrolls Online’s Stonethorn got a launch date, and Destiny 2 delayed Beyond Light. And hey, Skull and Bones isn’t dead!

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!
