The Daily Grind: What’s the goofiest currency in all of MMO land?

    
7

So then, MMOs and online games. We’ve got gems, crystals, shards, marks, tickets, tomes, lumps, keys, tokens, commendations, shells, scraps, favors, coins, orders, fragments, charms, essences, crowns, stones, vouchers, credits, cubits, flux, badges, PLEX. We’ve even got Bauble Bubbles.

And now we’ve got… nugs.

“We recently added Chicken Nuggets – a form of currency that players can accumulate by playing the game,” Hi-Rez’s Heroic Leap Games announced in regard to Realm Royale. “Spend these Nuggets at the Shop to unlock awesome Chicken Skins, Character Skins, Mounts, and more!”

Can you top that one? What’s the goofiest currency in all of MMO land and beyond?

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!

Wow, this has to be some kind of record for least responses to a Daily Grind … Not often is the MMO community confronted with something so stupid that it leaves them (nearly) speechless.

The currency that sounded like Aphex Twin back in Legion (?)…or was that Warlords (WoW)? Either way, that one slightly tops the myriad of sometimes turgid and/or inane names for currency…

…why can’t they just have one? >.<

The only thing i can think of is Fallout’s bottle caps, but nuggets take the lead here.

That seems pretty hard to top in terms of stupidity.
