WRUP: Addressing concerns regarding Massively One edition

Eliot Lefebvre

I understand that some of our readers are concerned about some of the details regarding Massively One, so let's clear the air. Yes, in order to use Massively One, you do need to connect to the internet at least once an hour or your house and pets will be set on fire. But you should be online all the time anyway, and it's not as if the infrastructure ever suffers problems you can't foresee. Besides, the connection requirement is only for a small amount of personal data to enable features you don't want and never asked for, like preventing you from owning things you buy.

For the record, this is not satire. Satire is subtle.

Moving along, it's time for this week's installment of WRUP, which can be found past the cut as usual. As always, we'd love to know what you'll be up to over the weekend, so feel free to leave your own plans down in the comment section.

Beau Hindman, F2P and Mobile Columnist
@Beau_Hindman: I'm going to catch up in Game of Thrones Ascent and Defiance, but what I really need to do is get back into Mabinogi in a deep way. I'll be doing some coverage on the game coming up soon (no spoilers!) and want to know the game backwards and forwards.

Bree Royce, Editor-in-Chief
@nbrianna: Guild Wars 2 and something with dragons and bashings will be my goal, but I suspect I'll wind up in something else too. I've been craving something isometric.

David Desi, Multimedia Contributor
@PsykopigAU: It's some RIFT and The Secret World for me! Also I have been bitten by the Blood Bowl bug, so there will probably be a bit of that going on too!

Eliot Lefebvre, Columnist Extraordinaire and Senior Contributing Editor
@Eliot_Lefebvre: There is a Final Fantasy XIV beta weekend and it's already started and I don't know why in the world you are even remotely unclear on my weekend plans with that information.

(All right, I'll also be popping over to Star Wars: The Old Republic for some roleplaying with friends. But seriously.)

@irljasmine: RIFT, plus some RIFT, with a side of RIFT. F2P for everyone just launched, and I'm basking in Storm Legion content. This weekend I'll be focusing on leveling, exploring, and generally having a grand ol' time in Telara.

Jef Reahard, Managing Editor and Columnist Extraordinaire@jefreahard: Still working on a few SWTOR flashpoints and class stories here. Other than that, I'm doing some single-player stuff. Oh and I traded in 15-minute chunks of casual World of Warplanes dogfighting action for 15-minute chunks of casual War Thunder dogfighting action.

Justin Olivetti, Columnist Extraordinaire and Senior Contributing Editor
@Sypster: I think this weekend will be a nice casual experience. I'm marching through Wildermore in Lord of the Rings Online, heading into the Savage Coast in The Secret World, and smashing pinatas in Guild Wars 2.

Mike Foster, Contributing Editor
@MikedotFoster: Dota 2, as usual. And I'll be leaping into Firefall as soon as this week's Choose My Adventure poll closes! Can't wait to start shooting monsters in the face. Or maw, or whatever.

Richie Procopio, Multimedia Contributor
@RichieProcopio: Guild Wars 2 will get the lion's share of my time this weekend as the Dragon Bash festivities are in full swing. Don't forget to login and witness the fireworks show in Lion's Arch (it runs every 2 hours) to receive your special dragon helms!

At the start of every weekend, we catch up with the Massively staff members and ask them, "What are you playing this week?" (Otherwise known as: WRUP!) Join us to see what we're up to in and out of game -- and catch us in the comments to let us know what you're playing, too!
