Lords of the Dead guild message board.

[​IMG] Earlier this month, Black Desert GMs ran a live in-game event. I was super excited to hear about something like that in a newer MMORPG until I saw some of the complaints. Apparently, the event amounted to a “mysterious stranger” played by what I assume is a GM, who arrived on Valencia 6 and started “gathering souls,” i.e., murdering everyone [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

[​IMG] Earlier this week, we reported on a move by the Belgian Gaming Commission to investigate lockboxes/lootboxes in games like Star Wars Battlefront 2 to determine whether they constitute games of chance to the degree that they require regulation meant for gambling. Now it appears the Dutch have joined them. According to NU.nl, the Dutch Gaming Authority is also investigating whether [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered. Please review our terms of use for feeds.

[​IMG] This week’s Massively Overthinking topic is a submission from reader and commenter camelotcrusade, who takes the industry’s current fight over monetization in a different direction from lockboxes. “Are modern games too cheap?” he asks, probably slowly reaching into a can of worms with a wicked gleam in his eye. “When you think about it, many other things we buy have [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

Recently, Wargaming and Project VALOR announced a special bundle to the World of Warships community that would raise funds for the USS Texas, a WWI and WWII veteran battleship that sustained heavy damage during the recent hurricanes. This historic ship is sinking and in dire need of funds for drydock repairs.

[​IMG] Now that Crowfall fans have a little longer to wait before the game’s soft launch, they have time to fully absorb this lengthy article on action harvesting. Yes, ArtCraft has been pushing this vision for harvesting for a couple of months now, but there is a good chance that you still don’t know what it means other than imagining a [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.

[​IMG] If you lost your mind over Star Citizen’s procedural cities reveals at CitizenCon a few weeks ago, you definitely need to tune in to this week’s Around the Verse, where city tech is the star of the episode (if a bit backloaded). “We are just working on human cities at the moment,” CIG’s Wai-Hung Wan explains. “I would love to [...] This article was published by the word-wranglers at Massively Overpowered.
