Last week I invited Massively OP’s readers to share pictures showing off faction pride in some way, shape, or form. But who knew it would take the form of heavily armed reindeer girls in cheerleader skirts?
Hikari knew, because Hikari knows all. “Then there was that time Super Bunny Team Amazing went undercover at Fear Nothing Foundation in the original The Secret World. Alas, I was not as good at in-game photography in those days, so the quality isn’t great. RIP Rocket launchers and flamethrowers!”
I loved those flamethrowers. Loved them so much that my family left me citing repeated warnings from the Fire Marshall.
And while there isn’t a playable Murloc faction in World of Warcraft yet, at least Hurbster can dream of that day and play those few world quests that let him live the dream. The dream of being a disfigured fish-monster with stone age technology.
“This is the Storm Elite set in Final Fantasy XIV,” boasted Vincent. “Once you align yourself to the Maelstrom Grand Company in Limsa Lominsa, you gain access to this gear (after killing a ridiculous amount of hunts and farming seals). Here I can be seen advising my squadron on the proper battle attire. I have absolutely no idea why one of them refuses to wear a shirt. Honest.”
Miol took us back to Christmas with this particular Guild Wars 2 entry. “I think this is the faction called Snowball Squad, saying goodbye (or protesting) the end of another way too short Wintersday holiday season! Don’t ask me, how the yellow snowball was ‘crafted,'” Miol posted.
I’m not even sure if this Blade and Soul picture qualifies for the theme, but we’ll let it pass because it gives us another glimpse of the glorious pigtails of Utakata.
“I’m not sure the author means ‘political leanings’ when he stated ‘factions,’ Uta,” she said to herself. “I am also…inevitable. *Snaps fingers*”
And here is my tiny Lalafel in Final Fantasy XIV trying to tackle something huge, so that’s going to be the inspiration for the weekly screenshot challenge: Share an in-game picture that gives a sense of massive size and scope of… something!
