MMO Week in Review: Reddit chaos, Viridian, and instant karma for M2M

Meanwhile, we celebrated Marvel Heroes, Embracer announced cancelations and layoffs, Blue Protocol launched in Japan, EVE Online and SWTOR both saw new updates, Lord of the Rings Online teased its new class and race, and that glowing haze of embers you saw in the sky all last week was just the Magic to Master dumpster fire continuing to burn.

Read on to catch up with the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions today as every Sunday (since 2010!) in Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review!
