MMO Week in Review: The final fate of Marvel Universe Online

Marvel Heroes
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. If you missed a big MMO or WoW Insider story last week, you've come to the right post.

The early launch period, however, was not without its flaws; Gazillion was forced to compensate founders who ran into connection errors and other mishaps during the game's pre-launch headstart.

Read on for the rest of this week's top MMO stories.
