One Shots: You got something on your face

    
107

There is a grand conspiracy among MMO developers and it is this: Every last one of them has entered into a blood pact to shoehorn incredibly dorky hats and headgear into their games. That’s the only way to explain the proliferation of things like this picture.

“This is a Blade & Soul ‘head adornment,'” ScottLeyes said. “It’s probably the STUPIDEST costume piece I have ever seen. Why on earth would anyone want to wear a piece of toilet paper on their face?”

I do not have a good answer to that question. I am just as perplexed looking at it. Maybe it keeps spooling out from inside of her cranium?

If you’re into Trove, then chances are that you really love to get into the creation aspect of this cubist sandbox. Eyeofthetiger proudly presents a project that he and his guidies whipped up a while back.

“Welcome to the Sol Celestial Gardens. Just a little relaxation spot made in our club world (shout out to Clearly Clueless). This past week has been expansion and building like crazy.”

“Just checked in with this brand new game H1Z1: Just Survive,” Stacy submitted. “It’s pretty promising for a game just released in early access… hyuck hyuck. There have been some good additions since I last played. No full-blown character creator yet, but you can choose from two ethnicities and two genders. In my shot you may not understand that there is a good reason that fresh survivors usually opt to get down to their underoos the moment they start. It is more fun if I don’t tell you the reason, I think, but just know I’m not doing it just to dance on mailboxes or anything. I am Just Surviving.”

“There is a box in Guild Wars 2 that can turn people into stone — but not immediately,” Trevor writes. “Upon opening it, you have a few seconds to pose however you want. My upside-down Sylvari and a few random strangers got some really cool positions in the PvP lobby while waiting.​”

That is… totally normal. Like smashing your hand in wet cement before it dries. No regrets!

“Let me introduce you to my Herbalist from Black Desert Online,” Qarran posted. “Suffice it to say, he is definitely more scary than funny. If you look at him closely and the cast of NPCs around him, you can see that they have been smoking all the wrong herbs. Less munchies and more delusions of grandeur for this group.”

This column has sparked the notion of “creation” in my mind, so let’s make that our screenshot challenge of the week: show off something you created in an MMO (even if it’s just a corpse pile or a weird limerick).

Every week, One Shots shines a spotlight on the best community screenshots from your MMO adventures. If you have a great pic to share, email it to justin@massivelyop.com with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!

The first thing I created in Black Desert was a raft, because I love water.
