Nicknames: "Massive Ball", "The Massive Web"

Logo: On a black background, many orange lines make a grid-like structure, with white streaks continuously going through the lines, as well as clips from the game itself. The grid continue to zoom out and grow larger, eventually forming into a orange mass. After it zooms out, it reveals a blue ball with 2 cuts on the right and bottom, as the screen changes from a letterbox format to fullscreen. The ball rotates slightly with a orange border and "massive enTerTainmenT" below it. The screen then flashes, making the ball conduct lightning and a fog forming for a brief second before dispatching, with 2 shines appearing briefly on the border. It then shines for a second before quickly zooming towards the screen.

FX/SFX: The web zooming out, the logo rotating.

Music/Sounds: Networking sounds and people's voices ultimately merging into a sharp noise. A voice saying "Massive" can be heard at the end.

It then gets pushed away by a rectangle with "MASSIVE" in a futuristic font and "ENTERTAINMENT" below, being smaller, more plain, and spaced out to fit the former word. They vibrate from the recoil, before the ball then rolls in from the side, pushing it to the right.
