Massively OP’s 2018 Blooper Awards: Biggest resource crisis averted

    
13

Massively OP’s not-so-serious end-of-the-year awards continue today with our blooper award for biggest resource crisis averted. And the winner is…

The great global canvas shortage of 2018

With full credit to Massively OP reader Greaterdivinity for coming up with this hilarious sum-up of the absurd excuse some Bethsoft reps were giving for why the company was distributing a crappy nylon bag to Fallout 76 collectors edition buyers instead of the canvas bag they’d purchased. (Raf came up with a hashtag too! #GCS2018. We’re dying here.)

“Due to unavailability of materials, we had to switch to a nylon case in the Fallout 76: Power Armor Edition.” Yikes. Fortunately, the gamers are getting what they paid for in the end, but not before the internet lost its mind for a week first.

I’m glad all of you hoarders can have a grand yuck-yuck at the calamity. Some of us non 1%ers still don’t have any access to canvas. It doesn’t look like there will be any relief in ’19 either. So have your fun while the rest of us suffer you heartless bastards.

My wife and I have decided to go canvas free until everyone has canvas. My heart breaks for your and others plight.

The shortage has affected us all. The canvas lines are still quite long at the army surplus stores.

There is no shame in asking for help.

This will prepare us for the great phone shortage of 2019.

I knew what this was going to be as soon as I saw the headline. I should have trademarked the term ‘Great Canvas Shortage of 2018.:-p

I think canvas was not the only resource F’76 developers and company were short of. Innovation, quality control, honesty, you name it. Canvas was just the tip of the iceberg, waiting for the F’76 liner to pass by.

Yes, but… the canvas resource was the only one they were willing (able?) to fix.
