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…
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.
Teasing my MMO tree (I deserved this one, and I especially deserved PIGBANG)…
Logging into Blizzard’s overcrowded WoW Classic servers…
Graphics upgrades – playing to the judges on this one!
And finally, Blizzard’s ship of fools. This one almost won. Damn, Schlag.
Let’s tip our hats to past winners too. Here’s the 2016 winner, “Core Values”:
And the 2017 winner, “Being Uncle Owen”:
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.
