Leaderboard: Are you playing Elder Scrolls Online this week?

Last week I patched up Elder Scrolls Online. Remember? We chatted about how the game’s launcher is an expletive that rhymes with kitty. Over the weekend, though, my desktop took a dump, so instead of mingling with the droves of pretty people flocking to Tamriel, I’m waiting on a shipment of parts and cursing that 20 GB download all over again.

What about you, MassivelyOP readers? Are you playing ESO this week? Vote after the cut!

Leaderboard: Heavensward vs. Heart of Thorns

Two big MMO expansions are on tap this year, and you know what that means, right? Yep, Massively OP is going to pit them against each other in our Leaderboard column for fun and profit page hits.

In this corner, we’ve got Heavensward, the first expansion for Square’s Final Fantasy XIV. And in the other corner, we’ve got Heart of Thorns, ArenaNet’s first expansion for Guild Wars 2. Which is your favorite?

Leaderboard: How much MMO time have you had in recent weeks?

I haven’t had a whole lot of time for MMOs lately, what with MassivelyOP’s reboot and a bunch of other life crap that’s neither here nor there. Sure, I’m dabbling and staying current for professional reasons, but I haven’t enjoyed one of my typical 30-hour gaming weeks in quite a while.

What about you MassivelyOP readers? How much time have you been spending on MMOs in recent weeks? Vote after the cut!

Leaderboard: Camelot Unchained vs. Crowfall

It’s a good time to be a fan of MMO sandbox PvP, as Camelot Unchained and Crowfall are both poised to bring AAA production values and a wealth of industry experience to bear on that particular playstyle.

I’m interested to see how they both turn out, but in terms of which one I’ll be playing, it’s probably Camelot Unchained (not a fan of Crowfall’s resetting world mechanic, sadly).

What about you, Massively readers? Assuming you’re interested in fantasy MMO PvP, which game do you plan on playing, Camelot Unchained or Crowfall? Vote after the cut!

Leaderboard: Which Daybreak MMO is most vulnerable?

Are you over the Daybreak Game Company layoffs shock yet? Nope, neither am I. But my shock is compounded by dread over the fate of the studio’s games. While Daybreak has reassured players that it’s still got teams working on most of its MMOs (and I myself argued yesterday that most of the games are probably safe), some of the studio’s titles seem more vulnerable than others, especially given last year’s infamous purge. Of course, getting H1Z1, PlanetSide 2, and Landmark players to agree on who’s in the most trouble is a daunting task. Let’s put it to a vote in our shiny new poll: Which Daybreak title’s future seems the most in jeopardy to you?
