One Shots: Dream home

    
20

Housing wish fulfillment (or lack thereof) was the main theme running through last week’s community postings here at One Shots. Where would we like to live in MMOs, either virtually or for real?

One thing is for certain: Toy Clown is far too classy for the likes of us. I mean, my own house doesn’t look anywhere near as nice as this Final Fantasy XIV shot!

“Oh, how I wish I could get the entire apartment into a shot, but too many partitions,” Toy Clown posted. “I also wish I had a nice garden tub and make-up kit like my character has in FFXIV.”

Mysecretid certainly skews to the scifi end of the spectrum, especially with this choice: “As a runner-up choice, there’s always my gunslinger’s hideout under the seas of Manaan in Star Wars: The Old Republic. One of the tricks to being a successful smuggler in the Star Wars universe? Always hide where the Empire would never think to look!”

Like Delaware!

Hikari was taken in by this cultist cabin in the woods in Secret World Legends. If you get invited to go on a camping trip there, I would recommend you either decline or notify your next of kin.

“We have been using this for RP as the House of Light Farmhouse for years,” Hikari said. “It has a fireplace, TV, kitchen and some other nice usable features. It’s open to the world, so it would be nice to have an instanced version.”

Then again, maybe you already had your ideal MMORPG house. And maybe it was taken away from you against your will. #RIPWildStar

“This was my house. I would like it back again please,” Utakata said.

You hear that, NCsoft? You made Utakata cry, so you better make this right!

One of the 11,000 or so souls sailing across the virtual galaxy in Elite: Dangerous is MOP reader Xijit, who is photojournaling this massive player experience. Happy trails!

“Getting ready for Distant Worlds 2,” the captain posted. “First time I have been excited for an in-game event in years.”

Speaking of player events, this week’s screenshot challenge is to post you actually engaging in something off of the developers’ path and with the community. Show us a time you were part of a player event, partying with guildies, or something else that didn’t have XP tied to it!

Every week, One Shots shines a spotlight on the best community screenshots from your MMO adventures. If you have a great pic to share, email it to justin@massivelyop.com with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!

Well, the most recent player event in FFXIV was release of Blue Mage, so there were lots of players waiting for quest giver to appear for several hours (I’m sure this was the same on all servers):

With a little bit of blue-mage for good measure :)

I saw this in our database while working on a post earlier and just KNEW it was an upload to One Shots. I love it so much. It looks like they just finished a broadway number.

Cheers! Any time my free company gets together for an event it does tend to get quite theatrical :)

I don’t care how nicely furnished that Morninglight cabin is in TSW/L. The fact that Adrian Zorlescu is hanging around makes it uninhabitable.

For the longest time, the dialogue in that place was broken. Like… for years. So they just sorta stood there and didn’t talk. It was nice.

They fixed it however and now those two talk constantly. It can be a bit disruptive. But, still a good RP location.

Not really an event. But it’s tradition on our FFXIV server (and likely a bunch of other’s aswell) to have a dance party in Limsa during new years eve. This picture was taken just when the server clock hit 12.

Through the years, I’ve enjoyed hosting server-wide RP events across the MMOs I’ve played in, although I’ve slowed down over the past few years and now enjoy attending other people’s events. This one is from BDO where I hosted the Seafarer’s Ball. The first shot is of the ball in full swing and the 2nd is a staff shot.

Nice pictures all once again.

Time you were involved in a community event, eh? Heh, picking 5 pictures will be hard because this is what I DO.

As an in-game photographer and RPer, I get into a lot of community events for Secret World Legends (and TSW).

As official photographer for the World Battle Federation and Happy Tentacle radio, I cover all the fights and as many HTR events as I can.

I also cover and/or help organize other events like Cabal Pride (a recruiting event) and Put On Purple 2 (for charity) and DJ shows. LOTS of DJ shows.

Okay… in no particular order (because the site doesn’t let me organize them) Ooooh… I can go back and edit the post to get the right order…

World Battle Federation (someone asked if I could fight AND take pictures. FYI, I can.)

Happy Tentacle Radio’s 5th Anniversary.

Laila’s Halloween Costume Contest (as Lara Croft).

Cabal Pride 5

Put on Purple 2 in honor of MadLyric

Hmmm… yeah, not 5…

Megaversary! So many community events last year. (And yes, some of these have been on One Shots before)
