Massively OP’s Weirdest MMORPG Stories of 2017: Happy little trees

Oh, Mr. Ross, always a pleasure.

Today we’re continuing our countdown of Massively OP’s weirdest MMORPG stories of 2017!

Coming in at #2 on our list is…

SMITE honors ‘painting god’ Bob Ross

As a wannabe painter, I adore the late great Bob Ross, but I never expected to see him literally as a playable skin in a video game, and I doubt he ever did either, but kudos to Hi-Rez and the Ross estate for making that happen this year in SMITE. The best part is that he’s a Sylvanus skin. That’s just beautiful. But definitely one of the weirdest stories of the year.

Stay tuned tomorrow for our final entry in the countdown, and don’t forget to check out our annual MMORPG awards and our blooper awards while you’re at it!

He’s kind of the “Chef Gusteau” of painting. Anyone can do it!

“There are no mistakes, only happy little accidents.”

– Bob Ross.

Now, there’s a quote i’ll carry with me.

I am of the opinion that Bob was teaching us more about life than about painting. If only more people had watched him in their formative years…….

I too am a wanna-be painter and I grew up with Bob Ross. I hate how easy he made everything look because I’m nowhere near as good. But Bob was so Zen about it that I could never get too frustrated when my attempt at happy trees ended up looking mangled and diseased.

I won’t fault Hi-Rez for wanting to do a Bob Ross tribute thing (and charging $10 for it), but with Bob Ross turning into a twitch channel and meme it fits in well with the crass kind of “skin” themes that game loves to sell. KAPPA

Which is to say I didn’t find it very “wacky”, but I see why others may.

I remember that, that was a good one.

Oddly enough, I finished out 2017 with Bob Ross. Given how completely insane 2017 was I figured it would be a calm way to end the year. It was.

Now we’ve started this year comparing red button sizes. I guess more Bob Ross in the coming days? /happy little trees :(
