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

    
36

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.

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:

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?

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 :)

The speed and creativity which you work is really awe-inspiring.

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
