One Shots: I have had just about enough of you!

There are certain locales and cutscenes in MMORPGs that I’ve noticed get screenshotted more than most, and none seem to be quite as popular as the fisticuffs/rebar scene from Secret World Legends. Are we all so bloodthirsty or is it just such an epic moment of vengeance that we can’t help ourselves?

Hirku sure couldn’t: “Off-topic this week because I played SWL’s Last Train to Cairo storyline for the first time last night and wanted to share my pics of kicking Saddur’s ass.”

That poor guy’s been impaled more times than a YouTube video of a girl telling us her opinion about cutoffs has gotten comments. That analogy totally ran away with me. MOVING ON.

Zyrusticae can be hired to build your next dream home: “I still have not been playing much other than Conan Exiles lately, so more Conan Exiles is what you’ll get! Finally built some guard towers around our base to deter people from climbing in willy-nilly during raid hours. If only I were allowed to set the guards to aggressive outside of raid hours…”

Several players were encouraged to submit pictures of their favorite MMO zone and to tell us why it is so well-designed. So how about this sandy one?

“While I don’t play Black Desert anymore, Altivova was a very wonderful city where I spent a good deal of my time,” said UpayaBlossom. Mostly, as BDO lacks fast travel, the sight of Altinova in the distance usually meant a successful… whatever it was that we were doing. This spot was gorgeous — in Valencia just across the river. It was a quiet, out-of-the-way spot to rest between grinding.”

Vincent wowed us with plenty of gorgeous shots from Final Fantasy XIV: “For me, the layout and visuals of Gridania will always one of my favorites. I will admit, it is mostly for nostalgic reasons. This is where I first started, my first dps class, my first crafting class. How everything from the crafting halls to the Grand Company HQ to the Adventurer’s Guild has such amazing detail, you often miss it on your first run through.”

“I’m rather enjoying the new Umbra’s Courtyard area from the recent Warframe update,” reports CapnLan. “Liked it so much I ended up spending about an hour taking action shots with Excalibur Umbra. And yes, I made him purple. That’s just how things ended up. Fashion Frame is a helluva drug.”

An MMO where players get sucked into the whole cosmetic outfit side of the game? Never heard that before!

A few weeks ago we did look at character fashion, but what about where they live? Yes indeed, it’s time once again to submit screenshots of your in-game house, castle, or superbase and let us know what you’ve done with it!

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!

So the server I’m playing on wiped and now I’m rebuilding from scratch, so I decided to build a bare-minimum temporary abode to start with before I get started on the *real* build – something that will require that I at least have upgraded tools before I get started. Quite the downgrade from my previous abode, eh?

The Star House (shaped like a star from the air) is the one building on the Conan Exiles server I designed myself. I had help with the roof… my weakness.

But if you want a real masterpiece, you have to go for Natalyia’s Eh’wak Village, which I may have caused by saying I envisioned a certain tree city on a certain moon populated by angry teddy bears.

I took several shots of our Free Company home, but as I didn’t design the layout, etc. I thought it was a bit wrong to post them (when the creative credit should go to the person who put hours into decorating it). So…since I’m a poor lalafell (a rarity, surely), it’s just me and my one bedroom flat :)

My efforts to redecorate in LotRO post-housing redesign have been hampered by my highest level character being 85 and abandoned midway through Rohan. I won’t see any new decor items for months or years to come.

Instead I’ve been trying to reshuffle what I have to create “nooks” in the corners of my Bree-land house. My cat appreciates the fireside rug with caged snack, but she just sniffs at me when I offer a lap. At least the books love me.

“…submit screenshots of your in-game house…”

Right.
Fine.
I’ve been a ESO+ player for…a long time. I don’t buy much, so I’d some Crowns to spend. I eventually purchased the Alinor Crest Townhouse in Summerset. I’m a Bosmer, and it’s technically Altmer architecture, but I really like the colours and the courtyard fountain..and I’m fairly certain I saved the rule of Queen Ayrenn a few years ago. It’s more extravagant (like all high-elf accoutrements) than I need (or like), but I earned it. ;)

A CMDR’s bunk is never far from her cockpit. Here I am in Elite flying combat patrol for the Federal Liberal Command, looking out over the rings of Runapa B 6 from my favored Federal Assault Ship, the FLC Emma Goldman. My home? Out there, somewhere, in the black. I’m not too picky.

The FAS is a fantastic ship. It’s the brick that keeps on giving (…usually class 3 pulse lasers to whatever interdicted me :)

I have absolutely settled on it as my primary combat ship. The FDL didn’t have the agility I need to float circles around targets and the Dropship is a bit too unwieldy and needing of better piloting skills than I current possess. The Alliance vessels are making a good run on the money, but my just under $3mil fully engineered rebuy on the FAS usually makes it a no brainer for anything that may lead to PvP, which is a lot of the stuff I do.

*These are NOT from an MMO, but I haven’t really done anything screenshot worthy in an MMO for the last little while. Meanwhile, I have played a lot of the Octo Expansion in Splatoon 2. There are a lot of good shots I’d rather not post just yet because they contain story spoilers, so maybe another day… As of now, see if you can spot the two Easter eggs in the ones I’m sharing today!

Hopefully soon I’ll be back with some MMO-related screenshots. :)

…as for Mr. Schlag’s version, a Suramar City guard once said to me while trying sneaking by them, “Something is not quite right.” o.O

When it comes to housing EQ2 wins hands down, unfortunately I am not a very good decorator but I’ll share 2 shots of my monks little Halas house: the bar (because one has to be able to offer the odd visitor a cold ale) and the weapons wall (what to use to murder poor NPC’s with today)

Oh yeah, EQ2 is the best when it comes to housing, also guild halls.

Haha, thanks for the feature and headline. “Did you just drop a Star Trek reference, sir?”

Nice timing too, because this morning I couldn’t resist the idea of Hirk vs. Hur’q, so here’s my newest incarnation in the only home he’ll ever need.

Given the rest of the bridge crew leave to watch the World Cup??? XD

Let’s face it, pretty sure England still haven’t won it by the 25th century :-(
