The MOP Up: Dungeon & Fighter Mobile’s Chinese launch crashes from high demand


Dungeon & Fighter is one of those odd franchises that nobody seems to notice in the west but is incredibly, obscenely, immensely popular in the east. How popular? So much so that Tencent’s recent launch of Dungeon & Fighter Mobile in China basically cratered the servers due to the high demand.

“Tencent Holdings Ltd. suspended Dungeon & Fighter Mobile within an hour of its Chinese debut because of unspecified server glitches, suggesting players flooded the online platform for one of 2024’s most highly anticipated titles,” Bloomberg reported.

And this is just the beginning of the rest of the news! Read on for a roundup of other smaller MMO news stories and videos from this past week in this edition of The MOP Up (and if you don’t see a news story that we should have covered, drop us a tip)!
