The Daily Grind: What was the funniest group you ever had in an MMO?
There are lots of things that I love about dungeons in Final Fantasy XIV, but one of the many is the way that you can often get groups willing to be flat-out hilarious. At one point, I had a group with a Roegadyn Summoner who helpfully informed me “I GOT U BAE” when he used Mana Shift on my Paladin. Another time we were grouped with a character dressed up as what I can only describe as the Lalafell Pope, prompting a number of jokes through the dungeons about His Holiness the Lalafell Pope. I’ll never forget my group with someone named Viewing Catscene. And so forth.
Of course, this is not unique to that game; I have also had funny groups in World of Warcraft, and City of Heroes seemed tailor-made for people to kvetch and be dumb in chat whilst laying waste to city blocks. But today, it’s not about my stories, it’s about yours. Share with us, dear readers. What was the funniest group you ever had in an MMO? What anecdote of good-natured humor do you still share years later?
