Previously on MV TV: The week of June 9th


Last week was yet another fun week in Massively's livestreaming history. We try to offer a variety of games for viewers to enjoy, but of course, your suggestions always come in handy. If you know of a game or area or activity within a game that you would love to see explained or streamed, send us a note on our tip line. Also, be sure to bookmark our MVTV guide so you will always be the cool kid on the block who knows what's coming up next!

This week we had Mike with some World of Tanks and EVE Online, the infamous Psykopig playing a bit of Star Wars: The Old Republic, MJ streaming some Lord of the Rings Online, EverQuest II and Aion, and my wrap-up with some horrible PvPing in Luvinia Online.

Remember, let us know if you are dying to see a game streamed live. In the meanwhile, click past the cut and enjoy!

World of Tanks banner
In his first World of Tanks outing, Mike quickly realized that he was not very good at driving tanks. In fact, it turns out he's pretty terrible. This week's stream features a good look at what beginning World of Tanks players can expect from the free-to-play MMO, which mostly involves getting blown up. A lot.

EVE Online banner
Mike's EVE Online stream continues with NPC rat-hunting in high-security space. Join Mike as he hops in a Drake, smashes out to a deadspace pocket, and slays wave after wave of obnoxious Guristas pilots. And of course, there's always the question of whether some daring foe will attempt to chase the 100 million ISK bounty on Mike's head.

Psykopig has changed games and gets right into it with a show focused on PvP! The Huttballs, Novarre Coasts, and... turret level (whatever it's called) don't know what hit them! Lots of wins and one very upsetting loss set the stage for Thursday Night PvP with Psykopig, starting off what is looking to be a fun-filled show.

Seasons come and go, and so does the Spring Festival. For the festival's final day, MJ honed her equestrian skills, picked more flowers, shopped the vendor, and walked the plank... er, fence. Did she finally master drunken fence-walking? Watch and see!

EverQuest II banner
No longer confined to four walls, MJ bounds through Kunzar Jungle, where even getting the quests can be deadly. The air is fresh; the land is lush and inviting. But could she stay on task and actually accomplish something, or did all the scenery distract her like one giant shiny? If you missed the jungle-fever action, go ahead and watch it here.

Aion banner
Neither rain nor sleet nor healer-who-just-stands-around could keep MJ from Kromede this week, but that doesn't mean her group didn't try its darndest anyway! Words you really never want to hear from a healer: Should I heal? Check out as MJ joined up with some other adventurers to head through Fire Temple and discover that PUG really means Painfully Unskilled Group!

Luvinia Online banner
I had my fun this week as well, jumping into Luvinia Online to join in the Yutaka's Tomb PvP event. Essentially, 10 boss monsters are spawned, and the two opposing teams must fight each other as well as the bosses and their minions. Once those bosses are downed, then a mega-boss appears and the real fight begins. When it ends, the team that did the most damage gets a batch of goodies. I had a lot of issues during the stream, like not knowing how to play, the inability to find my team, and the client crashing out during streaming (now you know why I stream the desktop), but eventually I got settled into some real fun. Check it out!
