ExitLag-Review-With-MMORPGs-By-MMOPulse

More than half of all MMORPGs make their debuts in countries somewhere in Asia. Connecting to these games from the Western hemisphere can be quite a hassle due to the sheer distance and often times due to region-based IP blocks. In the past decade, VPNs (Virtual Private Networks) have become such a wide-spread tool, especially to MMO gamers. Through them, it’s possible for anyone to play games from anywhere in the world.  ExitLag is one of a handful of game VPNs that I use to access and play dozens of MMOs coming out in South Korea. For a few bucks, this software has fast connections specifically for MMOs from all over the world.

NCSoft Q1 2018 Earnings Report Shows Blade & Soul As Strongest Non-Mobile MMO While Aion Sales Increase

NCSoft-Quarterly-Report-Q1-2018-Aion-Blade-Soul-Guid-Wars-2

NCSoft’s quarterly earnings report for Q1 2018 have just been released and while the company’s giant spike in mobile games revenue continues to even out, several MMORPG titles appear to be making a comeback.

Aion’s sales jumped by 48% which was fueled by the change in monetization scheme. Comparing the sales of NCSoft’s top PC games, Blade & Soul is leading the way as their highest source of income from PC games. As a speculation, this could be the result of the combination of a large number of updates done to Blade & Soul in the recent months and the hype from Blade & Soul Mobile at the end of last year.
