April Fools and Events (MMO)


Pranks
So April Fools day has had a few fun things about today in the MMO world. If you hadn't guessed, the site linked in my last post was just a spoof site I made for today. I suppose if you didn't read it, you didn't get it ;)  There have been a few bloggers posting April Fools jokes, which I just love! I especially love it when game companies join in on this as well.


Blizzard had a Battlenet Matchmaking Service, Neural Interface, and Equipment Ranking System listed on the website. Also the WoW armory has some very funny models showing up, it also says I ninjaed and cheesed several items, ha! I get such a kick out of pranks on this day!


Everquest has New Technology Brings New Character Models. This was a prank they used a few years back, players actually loved it, I'm glad to see it around this year as I missed it the first time around. I'll have to make sure to log in at some point today!

Allods Online joins in on the fun with the listing of a New Race: Space Marine! Which looks like John Travolta heh. If you've seen 'With Love From Paris, (I actually saw this recently) you'll get it.


RuneScape claims they have a Theme Park opening in the UK

Lineage2 has has some increased drop rates on vesper weapons by 'accident'!

I'm sure I missed a few, I was hunting around to see what funny things I could find today! Let me know if I missed something truly funny, I am always up for a good laugh.
