The Stream Team: Making the most of Marvel Heroes Monday
It's Monday! Why celebrate? Because it's Marvel Heroes Monday, that's why. Of course, it's not as if Massively's MJ actually needs a reason to dive in and revel in the plethora of super powers, but it definitely makes Mondays better. This week the focus is on finishing up as much of the story line as possible on Storm because MJ knows as soon as Rogue is released, it's game over for all the other heroes in the line up! Can MJ power through the missions, or will she be distracted by all the shiny loot and XP from the latest Cosmic Chaos event? Join us live at 3:00 p.m. to see!

The Stream Team: ArcheAge beta has gone to the cats
ArcheAge's first (and only) open beta is in full swing, and there are players galore running about the lands. Why not be one of them and join Massively's MJ on her Elven adventures? Take advantage of the opportunity to dive in and read stories to cats and take missions from them. Wait a minute -- this is supposed to be the Elf area, not the feline one. Could this be the beginning of an invasion? MJ must find out! Join us live at 1:00 p.m. as she seeks the answers and possibly heads out to the danger zones to taunt some of the bigger cats *cough*Firran*cough* into a fight.

The Stream Team: Aiming for the gods in LEGO Minifigures Online

Video, Patches, Kids, Family, Livestream, The Stream Team

Though still in beta, LEGO Minifigures Online recently introduced Mythology World, a LEGO land where Greek gods like Zeus and Hades strut their stuff (and possibly try to squish players). A big fan of mythology, Massively's MJ is eager to hop in and work her way into this new land, but her biggest challenge will be leveling enough to get there! Will she earn enough power to make it to the mythical land to face off against Minotaurs and maybe even Medusa? At least maybe she'll find the pieces to make a new minifigure. Join us live at 3:00 p.m. for the race to the gods.

Elite Dangerous
What happens when you take a space sim rookie, strap him into a starship, and tell him he's free to explore the stars as he pleases? Join Massively's Mike Foster as he discovers the answer to just that question in the current beta build of Elite: Dangerous. Elite, built by Frontier Developments and funded by the crowd, is the subject of this month's Choose My Adventure, and there's no better way to start our journey than by broadcasting our maiden voyage for all to see.

While PvP is a hot new topic in Landmark, Massively's MJ is still an explorer through and through. And she's learned of an amazing cavern system that's worth getting lost in. This amazing underground system, called Rending Deep, was designed by fellow player Katiari, and we hear it has many jaw-dropping vistas. So join us live at 8:00 p.m. EDT to delve down into the deep darkness.

The Stream Team: Seeking chaos with Dota 2's ability draft

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

Dota 2 Ability Draft
One of the most important steps in mastering a MOBA like Dota 2 is developing a deep understanding of every hero's skills. When you know what a hero can and cannot do, you can play effectively both as that hero and against him/her. But what happens when you take hero abilities, stick them in a blender, and force players to fight using whatever skills they can grab? Ability Draft, that's what.

Join Massively's Mike Foster at 7:00 p.m. EDT as he investigates Dota 2's Ability Draft mode (by viewer request!), where skills are picked up à la carte and chaos reigns supreme. He may win, or he may lose, but in Ability Draft, it's more about the journey than the destination.

Folks have had a few days to get their bearings with Landmark's new PvP combat system, and that means more arenas have opened their doors. Want to see what's sprung up? Massively's MJ is taking a tour to see and experience -- and most likely die in -- some of the new builds focused on the fledgling fighting system. She's sure there are many creative ways to perish at the hands of her fellow players! With any luck, at least some will involve proximity mines. Join us live at 1:00 p.m. for the two-hour tour (as well as a chance to win more codes).

The Stream Team: Becoming a TERA BAM killer

TERA
En Masse's Kickstarter-esque Bam Killer TERA event is too adorable for Massively's Mike Foster to pass up, so tonight he's lacing up his lancer boots and setting off on a course for monsters and mayhem. Join him as he scours the world for BAMs (Big Ass Monsters) to kill and works to help TERA's community reach its murderous stretch goals. The ultimate goal is five million BAM kills in 21 days; surely Mike can put a considerable dent in that number?

The action starts promptly at 7:00 p.m. EDT.

The Stream Team: Random drafting in Dota 2

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

Dota 2
Newcomers to Dota 2 often stick to the game's All-Pick mode when searching for matches. In All-Pick, every hero currently in the game's hero pool is available for selection. This makes character selection more manageable for new players (since you can pick heroes you know), but it also leads to an All-Pick All-Stars syndrome in which the same few heroes show up time and again to crush teams and bust ancients.

Tonight, Massively's Mike Foster is exploring a different game mode known as Random Draft. In Random Draft, players take turns choosing from a pool of randomly selected heroes. There's still flexibility in terms of individual hero choice, but the full pool isn't available, and thus teams must get creative using the heroes that appear. Sometimes this goes well; sometimes it doesn't.

Tune in at 7:00 p.m. EDT to see how it turns out for Mike.

You know how people always reminisce about where they were when the moment something big happened? Well, something big just happened in Landmark, and Massively's MJ is making sure you are there to be a part of it. Yes, combat has just arrived! That means death galore, and not just death at the hands of fellow players but death by mountains and oceans, too. And, as always, she's got some fun codes to giveaway as well.

After having her car insurance canceled in ArcheAge (apparently water damage isn't covered!) and her driving privileges revoked, Massively's MJ heads back to the safer realms of questing. Oh, whom are we kidding -- there is plenty of trouble she can get into anywhere! And if you know MJ, you know she'll find some. Maybe she'll even turn to a life of crime and go on a potato-stealing spree. Join us live at 6:00 p.m. for more Firran alpha adventures.

Massively's Mike Foster is prepping for one last go-round with Firefall, the subject of this month's Choose My Adventure. According to the results from last week's poll, readers are hoping to catch a glimpse of Firefall's newly-implemented campaign in action.

The indecision is getting worse with this one! Marvel Heroes has so many cool superheroes -- from Guardians of the Galaxy to X-Men to the Fantastic Four, and more -- and Massively's MJ is having a harder and harder time picking which to play! But soon that indecision may come to an end, as her all-time favorite is on her way: Rogue. Until then, MJ still has time to play around with the rest of the lineup. Join us live at 3:00 p.m. for more XP-explosive adventures during Operation Omega as either Storm, or Rocket Raccoon, or Silver Surfer, or Psylocke, or...

The last time Massively's MJ popped into WildStar, she marveled at the migration of a herd of prancing Kool-aid gazelles... or some such creature. The Aurin starting area is definitely more colorful than the human one, and it's bound to be full of many more interesting creatures. In fact, MJ's next task is to help a giant tree. Where will that lead? Join us live at 1:00 p.m. to see as she continues her adventures and seeks out strange new life.
