MassivelyOP’s 2019 Golden Yachties: Most bizarre thing in an MMO this year

    
27

MassivelyOP’s not-so-serious end-of-the-year awards begin today, and you’ll notice we’ve given them a new name this year: the Golden Yachties.

Many years ago on Old Massively, someone cracked a joke that video games bloggers made so much money they were probably sailing around on yachts made out of solid gold. Not only would that, you know, not actually physically be possible, it could not be further from the truth. Nevertheless, it’s become one of our favorite dumb memes to kick around when mocking ourselves and our profession, and now, it’s replacing our old “blooper” award.

So we’re kicking off the new Golden Yachties with our pick for Most bizarre thing in an MMO this year. And the winner is…

EVE Online fan builds a custom fishtank with a Keepstar battle station

I’m cheating a little bit here because this item isn’t in an MMO; it’s actually a real thing. But it involves an MMO. And it’s cool as hell: A gamer created an actual fishtank using EVE Online props. Love.

Naturally, I have two runners-up. The first is from Neverwinter, and it’s the stuff of nightmares.

Schlag made it much worse by animating it. Good work, Schlag!

And second, from Fortnite, the most inappropriately named map ever: Moisty Palms. Yeah, I know this is not a real MMO, but I wanted to make fun of this. Seriously, though, Epic, why?

Want to nominate another winner? Let us know in the comments, and don’t forget to check out our serious MMO awards while you’re at it.

Btw, for a yacht made out of solid gold to float, it only needs to take up enough space, more volume of water than the boat weighs.

Apparently Phantasy Star Online 2 actually put in an accessory this year that gave characters big anime you-know-whatsits. (Probably NSFW)

And because it was an accessory you could stack them in… areas.

God only knows what might happen if it’s in the Western version.

After the depression of the real awards this is just what we need, except that cloak, that was uncalled for.

All the cloak pic needs now is audio of the upper mouth singing the opening song from the “Rocky Horror Picture Show” film. ;)

It’s not that we think you have a Golden Yacht, it’s that you all deserve one! It’s fun to think of all the Massively OP correspondents gathered together in one place and partying in well-deserved and glorious luxury. And not to think too deeply on the buoyancy of gold.

Wait you have an award called the “Golden Yachties” and you don’t even have STAR CITZEN’s 890 Jump, which is literally a space yacht starship for $890 list in the runner-up slots?!!

I am offended and triggered as a long time STAR CITIZEN fan. It’s like you created an award tailor made for STAR CITZEN and it’s not even in the running?!! #Shame ;-) 🤣

Does your ‘art’ involve keeping someone in a pit and telling them “It puts the lotion on its skin!”
