Massively OP’s 2018 Blooper Awards: Most bizarre thing in an MMO this year

    
16

Massively OP’s not-so-serious end-of-the-year awards continue today with our blooper award for most bizarre thing in an MMO this year. And the winner is…

Inadvertent spyglass dongs

Back in September, Sea of Thieves had a wee bit of a problem with a bug that overwrote the animations for holding a treasure chest and holding a spyglass, which effectively led to a week of players running around with, er, erect spyglass dongs. Shenanigans ensued, but unfortunately the bug is spent now. “Fixed issue with telescope clipping,” the patch notes blithely said.

I missed this one. Maybe it came on the heels of the Conan Dong Discussion.

Feels like something the old late 90’s/early 00’s Rare would do as an intentional “oopsie” given the humor they did in games like Conker’s Bad Fur Day (from a paint can telling a pitchfork to go kill itself to fighting ‘The Great Mighty Poo’ who literally sings about how he’ll throw poo at Conker).

As for the game itself, SoT still feels like it needs more of everything imo. Certainly in a better state than it was but still not really enough compelling stuff to be more than a casual jaunt here/there.
