What a week in MMOs, right? BlizzCon got dates, we explored Elder Scrolls Online’s upcoming Necromancer class, EVE Online rescinded its accusations against a CSM member, and we got big updates in Guild Wars 2, Neverwinter, and Elite Dangerous. And then there was the City of Heroes drama: The first server was deleted over what turned out to be a hoax about legal action, then Titan Network announced it was negotiating with NCsoft on a lawful server agreement, and then the Homecoming team brought up another new rogue server, Torchbearer, and then still another, Excelsior, and then two more for a total of four servers while all that works itself out. A peak of 8000 people were all trying to log in to play on these servers concurrently this weekend as the game celebrated its 15th birthday. Dang. Read on to catch up with the very best of this week’s MMO news and opinions today as every Sunday in Massively Overpowered’s Week in Review!

This week week in MMO crowdfunding, Star Citizen dropped a nifty Around the Verse that focuses on the Area18 spaceport. Remember the demo video CIG floated a few years ago that everyone said made the game look like Coruscant Online? These cityscapes look more like Corellia now, with tracked transit systems to go along with the aerial movement. Good news too if you’re an elite tester: Alpha 3.5 dropped for the Evocati this week! (Thanks, DK!) We also got our first new MMO on Kickstarter of the year: Spycursion, an indie cyberespionage title. It’s off to a bit of a slow start, with only around $4000 of its $100,000 goal so far in the bag, but it’s got most of March to catch up. Meanwhile, Ashes of Creation is planning a state of the game stream next week (thanks, Pseudophonia!), Temtem updated backers on physical rewards, Saga of Lucimia set its next tester release for early April, Camelot Unchained counted 5100 humans and bots in its latest test, and Elite … [Read more...] about Make My MMO: Star Citizen’s spaceports and alpha 3.5, Spycursion’s Kickstarter
This is it. This is the fourth – and last – of our giveaways. It will run from now until December 25, so right on time for Christmas. And yes, it’ll be full of awesome prizes. Once again, thank you to ArenaNet and NCsoft for supporting us! As always, they provided us with the prizes – and we’ll pay for the postage to get said prizes to the winners. :p As I mentioned postage, there will be a “Germany-only” plush Charrlie below, but don’t worry, we also have one Plush Charrlie to give away internationally (unless you live in a hard-to-reach place with high postage fees in which case we’d ask if you could help us out – we’re not rich, unfortunately… :p).

It’s the time of the month when we share the progress report of a month & I’m pretty excited to share many interesting things that have happened in August. At the same time, I’m thrilled to inform you of what we are doing in this month. For now let’s do a quick recap of August, followed by Traffic & income report. My first experience as travel & work: Have you heard this term as Digital Nomad? According to Wikipedia, here is the definition of Digital Nomad: Digital nomads are individuals who use telecommunications technologies to perform their work duties and, more generally, conduct their life in a nomadic manner. It’s something to similar as travelling & working & living life as a minimalist. There is an enormous community of bloggers & entrepreneurs who love to travel & work. I’m delighted to share that for the first time in my life I tried it & result was exhilarating. We (Me & Shallu) travelled to … [Read more...] about ShoutMeLoud Monthly Traffic & Income Report- August 2015
