Last Week on Massively: WildStar's looming headstart

Alex Ziebart

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.

In the lead up to WildStar's May 31st headstart launch, the Carbine team this week implemented an enormous patch for the ongoing intermittent beta test and made amends for its recent name reservation troubles. Massively's all set for the launch too; most recently we interrogated the raid team on our podcast and suggested ways to prepare for the themepark's arrival.

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