The Daily Grind: Rename your favorite MMO, only worse

We're fine! We're fine. Everything is fine. This is fine.

All right, MOP readers, every discussion up to this one has been a warm-up to the main event. Wake up, swig that energy juice, and tell your brain to activate its creativity, because your time is… now.

Simply put, today we will rename our MMOs with a much, much worse name that is still appropriate somehow. And yes, you can use this as an opportunity to poke fun at your game. My candidates include Pie Running Simulator 2007, The Elder Color Palette, Not Harry Potter For Legal Reasons 101, Spaaaaace Rooooocks, and Pray Return XIV.

What would be a terrible name for your MMO but also awesome too?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!

I have been calling CSE’s secret second surprise game the Betrayal Game since early last year and that is still my favorite renaming (and it is the quite accurate as well).

At least spawns and drops might vary a little, maybe.

We have 1 footed, zero hearted, toothless, rampaging wolves. What, you didn’t expect quest items to drop reliably, did you?

Death doesn’t even hurt.

All titles appropriate for modern MMOs, and outside rare exceptions or very old games ALL MMOs. Pick a game, if one doesn’t apply another probably does…

To be a little less serious, although not MY MMO…

World of Whorecraft Online: Goldshire Edition.

Yes, I know, this is old hat pun territory. But anyone who thinks they do not stand upon the shoulders of comedic giants is probably just comedic dandruff.
