The Daily Grind: What’s the funniest conversation you’ve witnessed in MMO world chat?


I know it’s common wisdom to simply jettison the world chat window as soon as you log into a new MMO. It’s not healthy to have a firehose of angry, bitter, and combative people spewing crazy onto your screen without any filter.

Yet I usually leave it turned on, and this one act makes me a noble and brave soul indeed. It’s not that I want to set people straight over politics, religion, and how this game isn’t like World of Warcraft; it’s that once in a while, world chat can be pretty amusing. When people aren’t acting like cranky toddlers who missed their naptime, they can foster a fun sense of community with jokes, memes, and pun wars.

Yeah, I’m the guy who misses Barrens chat.

Assuming that you do drink from that firehose once in a while, what’s the funniest conversation that you have ever witnessed in world chat? Is there a running gag that keeps you chortling as you play?

Every morning, the Massively Overpowered writers team up with mascot Mo to ask MMORPG players pointed questions about the massively multiplayer online roleplaying genre. Grab a mug of your preferred beverage and take a stab at answering the question posed in today’s Daily Grind!
