Massively OP’s 2017 Blooper Awards: Most egregious use of buttcapes in an MMO

    
44

Massively OP’s not-so-serious end-of-the-year awards continue today with our blooper award for Most egregious use of buttcapes in an MMO. And the winner is…

Guild Wars 2

For real though.

There has to be a technical reason for this, right? It isn’t that they think we just like buttcapes on every armor outfit, right?

Want to nominate another winner? Let us know in the comments, and don’t forget to check out our serious MMO awards while you’re at it.

Hah, but what is an elf-butt suppose to mean then? Never did figure out what that was referring to :o

Reader

An elf butt is what an elf uses to sit.

But why does everyone act like it has some significance like from a certain game or such?

It started as a joke option on polls. I’m not sure when elf butts first appeared, but I’m pretty sure Bree was behind it.

Some podcasts ago Bree spoke about it. It was something she said in her guild voice chat, and became viral. And here we are, speaking about elf-butts :D.

Oh come on, not even an honorable mention for Titans in Destiny 2? :)

Yet, we still don’t have any real capes.

Between elf butts and butt capes, lots of butt focus going on around here. :P

Ok, now this was the “make up a category just to call out to a specific game” award.

I dunno it could have gone to farframe for the most useless cloak award :)

Some of those are really more of a robe. You don’t hear people ragging on Gandalf because he always wears buttcapes.

Also, you left off the most egregious one!

Yeah SWTOR’s buttcapes and trenchcoats are generally more annoying than attractive. I remember being super excited to get my first trench on my Agent, putting it on, and then going… “Huh.” The rampant clipping doesn’t help.
