The Stream Team: The daily grind for gilda in Archeage
After you finish up the story line quest in ArcheAge, the best supply of gilda stars dries up. And since all the cool toys -- from boats to houses to farm wagons -- are bought with those specialty coins, many players are constantly in a state of wanting more. (Whether players keep the deeds or resell them the auction house is another matter entirely!) Massively's MJ is one who needs more, more, MORE gilda stars! So to build her supply she's running a set of dailies. Join as at 1:00 p.m. and do the daily gilda star portal hop with her. It's all the rage!

Fantasy, Video, Livestream, WildStar, The Stream Team, Subscription

The megaservers for WildStar have just been deployed. Will Massively's MJ see an increase in activity while roaming about the Aurin wilds? Perhaps not so much in the lower levels, but maybe the promise of more robust populations will entice players back to the world of Nexus and cause a rash of rerolls. Join us live at 3:00 p.m. to peek into this new realm where everyone is now joined together, holding hands and singing Kum Ba Yah (OK, not really).

The Stream Team: Build it better in Massively's second Landmark competition

Betas, Video, Free-to-Play, Livestream, The Stream Team, Player-Generated Content, Landmark

Do you have the construction mojo? Or does your stuff resemble metallic mashed potatoes? There's no denying that there are definitely some impressive builders in Landmark, but how well can even those folks do when timed and using limited resources? Now is your chance to see!

Massively's MJ is hosting another timed building competition and invites you to come watch. Two brave builders have stepped forward to go head-to-head tonight; one looks to defend his title, while the other hopes to dethrone him. Both will win prizes for participating, but only one leaves with bragging rights! Oh, and did we mention it's all on a high platform from whence they might mistakenly plummet to their deaths? Join us live at 8:00 p.m. for a front-row seat to the fun (and a chance to win some of the codes for yourself).

The Stream Team: Making the most of Rogue on Marvel Heroes Monday
Marvel Heroes Monday is back! Massively's MJ is diving back into the game that glorifies in alt-itis like no other. With so many heroes to choose from -- and more added regularly -- it's understandable that anyone could be paralyzed by indecision, so just imagine how difficult it is for MJ to pick one to play. Luckily, the inclusion of Rogue on the roster makes at least that one choice in her life a bit easier; selecting Rogue is like playing a handful of her favorite heroes all at once! Join us live at 3:00 p.m. for more super adventures on the best southern belle around.

The Stream Team: Building your first ship in ArcheAge

Fantasy, Video, Free-to-Play, Livestream, ArcheAge, The Stream Team

One of the best things about ArcheAge is sailing around the world, whether you are looking for trouble on the high seas or just exploring uncharted islands. And even though you can hitch a ride in a friend's boat (or even an enemy's if you are really brave), nothing beats owning your own. So today Massively's MJ is going to build her first ship. It may not be anything fancy, but it will give her more mobilities out on the water. And what better way to test out the new ship than by taking it for a cruise? Join us live at 1:00 p.m. for some boat building and high-seas adventures. Profit and death may also be involved!

The Stream Team: Becoming an ArcheAge juror

Fantasy, Video, Game Mechanics, Free-to-Play, Livestream, ArcheAge, Sandbox, The Stream Team

If you've made it to level 30 in ArcheAge without any crime or infamy points (or whittled them away back to nothing), you get to embark on the jury quest. This allows you to sit in court and decide the fate of your peers who've been accused of crimes. Is that Firran who killed a group really acting in defense of his companions? What about that Harani who uprooted a grove of trees? Is killing bots worthy of jail time? Is the defendant a pirate or dutiful citizen? Massively's MJ has saved this quest line just for you, and she hopes to make it through jury selection to give you a feel of this peer-run legal system. Join us live at 2:00 p.m. for the first episode of The Haranyan's Court.

The Stream Team: Dota 2's 6.82 madness

Fantasy, Video, Game Mechanics, Patches, PvP, Free-to-Play, Massively Meta, Hands-On, Livestream, MOBA, The Stream Team

Dota 2
The last few months in Dota 2 have come with a sense of stagnation. The professional and high-tier play meta, on display most prominently in this year's $11 million International championship, was in a rut. Something had to change before players grew bored or frustrated with facing the same three or four team strategies. Last week, Valve delivered an earthquake of a content patch, providing a ridiculously huge update that changed items, heroes, abilities, game modes, core mechanics, and even the map itself. For the next few months, pros and casuals alike must sift through the wreckage and try to re-optimize how they play.

Tune in tonight as Massively's Mike Foster takes one of Dota's newly-reworked heroes for a spin and tries to make sense of the post-6.82 carnage. The action begins at 7:00 p.m. EDT.
