MassivelyOP’s 2019 Golden Yachties: Schlag meme of the year

    
51

MassivelyOP’s not-so-serious end-of-the-year awards end today with our pick for Schlag meme of the year. For those who never dip down into the comments, just know that Schlag Sweetleaf is our resident comment trickster, who somehow manages to say with his custom memes what so many people are thinking. We’ve been honoring him with this award for several years, and now we’re gonna do it again!

And the winner is…

Malibu Sylvanas

This just perfectly sums up World of Warcraft’s storytelling problems and the quality of solutions we’re now trained to anticipate. Also it cracks me up literally every time I see it. Chef’s kiss.

But since when do I ever stop at just one? Here are a few others that made my shortlist.

How Star Citizen finally added the laaaaaaadies:

That time when Guild Wars 2 had to overturn a bunch of bans of super innocent players because of a clever player’s utilization of GDPR:

EA’s “surprise mechanics.” There was actually more than one of these!

And finally, Blizzard’s ship of fools. This one almost won. Damn, Schlag.

And 2018:

Man, I still think Uncle Owen is my favorite of all time. But I would, wouldn’t I? Hearts to you, Schlag! You are amazing.

The 2016 gif was my all time favourite from Schlag. Also, holy crap has it been that long since the height of Nostalrius drama?

there is a truth in the words”we may never pass this way again” and that is sobering and thrilling in equal amounts. a house game”MoChess” Has been in my mind for some time.While i realize it epitomizes the very definition of a pipe dream. I wish to get it out there or forever hold my peace. Essentialy a chess variant, of which there are many , but this one is mine., separates itself from the fold w/ the inclusion of the “MoKnight”. The Moknight moves on its turn in one of two ways, per the players choice. One way is as the king moves , onespace in any direction/The second is as a one square jumper in any direction.

pawns can move 1,2,or 3 squares in their intial move , one square thereafter

en passant still applies as in standard chess, except applies to a pawn that moves 2 or 3 squares initially.

castling still applies as in standard chess, except the king travels one additional square ( king side or queen side)

i saw it in my mind as being played in a discreet corner of this great site, correspondence style.

“hey , i just metyou
and this is crazy
but this game would rock
so develop my app,maybe

respectfully

Best thing about these awards is I can catch up on all the memes I somehow missed over the course of the year.

Hats off Mr. S, there has been a truly bardic wit on display throughout the year. I also laughed out loud a lot :)

Sorenthaz, to see you still flying that avatar fills me with a real sense of pride and accomplishment, no joke intended

Lol, it’s a nice edit and better than just running a regular Chain Chomp avatar (which started as an inside joke with a friend that I’ve kind of just rolled with). Even though I don’t touch BDO the avatar’s grown on me. Thanks again :p
