MMO Week in Review: Deleted from life

Earthrise -- Also going F2P soon
At the end of every week, we round up the best and most popular news stories, exclusive features, and insightful columns published on Massively and then present them all in one convenient place. Miss a big MMO or WoW Insider story last week? You've come to the right post.

This week, Korean MMO publisher Hangame forgot what everyone who's ever written a last-minute research paper in Microsoft Word knows very, very well: Always make a back-up! Hangame managed to bungle a server issue and delete an entire MMO and its databases -- from life. Ouch!

Hopefully, refugees from Hangame's lost MMO will find a home in Star Wars: The Old Republic, for which we doled out beta keys just before the official NDA lifted.

In still other news, Massively is hiring again! This time we're looking for a maestro of all things livestream- and video-related. Apps are due in by December 2nd, so bring it on! Unlike Hangame, we expect you to press the save button. Repeatedly.

Hit the jump for a run-down of all this week's other top MMO stories.
