“Ship of Heroes” Awarded Indie MMO of the Year by MassivelyOP
On December 19, 2021, Massively OverPowered announced that it awarded its 2021 Indie MMO of the year title to Ship of Heroes.
“We are honored to have been chosen for the Indie MMO of the year award,” Casey McGeever, CEO of Heroic Games, said. In August, Ship of Heroes unveiled a selection of missions during a beta test involving 2500 players. The event was the 6th such event, topping the March 2020 impromptu community event which had nearly 1000 participants. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive: most players created new characters, played missions multiple times, and validated the level of difficulty.
Missions were not the only component receiving praises. The story and the high degree of customization in the character creator continued to garner accolades. The character creator tool was the subject of a beta in November 2019.
It has been Heroic Games’ goal from the start to build a MMO with good graphics that did not require high end gaming gear to be enjoyed. This event confirmed that Ship of Heroes will provide a positive gaming experience on older, mid range machines with graphic cards of somewhat older design. The developers at Ship of Heroes have taken a lot of care to ensure that exceptional levels of customization do not limit multiplayer gameplay or large raids. There is often a tradeoff between character customization and FPS in MMOs, because high FPS is necessary for immersion in the game world.
