Massively OP’s Weirdest MMORPG Stories of 2018: Sea cows in space

Today we’re kicking off a countdown of Massively OP’s weirdest MMORPG stories of 2018!

Coming in at #5 on our list is…

Elite: Dangerous guild adopts sea cow

This might be one of my favorite stories of the year, and yes it’s a puff piece, but it’s a fun puff piece: A guild in Elite Dangerous literally paid to adopt a real-life manatee on behalf of Frontier. They named him Crazy Nick. Seriously, I’m a little disappointed my guild never did something this bizarre but kind.

Stay tuned tomorrow for another entry in the countdown, and don’t forget to check out our annual MMO awards and our blooper awards while you’re at it!

I think Guild Wars 2 bubble tea was weird enough, it deserve a honorable mention :-)

From the original article:

in-game cooperative ran a project to breed, process, and distribute manatee meat from a “megaship.”

So…..Crazy Nick is totally going to get eaten.
