Calling all MMO fans!
I'm excited to announce that Wikia will be creating a Key Moments in MMO History video. This video will give viewers insight on some of the genre's best games, and the best moments from those games. We want to know which moments of Asheron's Call have resonated with players the most!

Recently Turbine published a Letter from the Producer. The first half is spent reflecting on the last two major updates - the 100th update and the 10th anniversary. The second half outlines some ideas Turbine has for the next big update, planned for the late spring or early summer of 2010.
