We’re counting down Massively OP’s weirdest MMORPG stories of 2016!
Wargaming basically signed actor and dojo master Steven Seagall as a promotional figure, dubbing him a “personal Heroic Battle Advisor” for World of Warships, which is actually not a terrible game and doesn’t deserve this, truly. It sort of sounds like a funny joke, like teaming up with budget Chuck Norris to sell cash-shop items, except it doesn’t really come off that way — maybe it’s lost in translation. In the promo video, Seagal goes from uncomfortably touring the studio to playing a ukulele to deadpanning that The Missouri is his favorite battleship — “because I was on The Missouri.” That he was on The Missouri in a movie is never actually vocalized. Bizarre indeed.
