One Shots: Abusing emote spam

One Shots: Abusing emote spam

Emotes: They’re a privilege, not a right. Well, they actually come pretty standard in most online games, so I guess they’re more or less a right. But not a right to abuse them, see? You have a solemn duty to present your best face to the gaming public!

Or you can just go wild and wacky, like IronSalamander8 here in Plants vs. Zombies: Battle for Neighborville. “Cheesy dance moves you say?” Iron said before striking this pose. Who knew that zombies could get jiggy with the afterlife?

Beware: Once you see this next picture, you will never be able to unsee it. It will be etched onto the back of your eyelids. It will waft up at you from every carton of bad Chinese food. It will be the final thing you see before you die.

Fine, take a look at Hikari’s abomination: “You want cheesy? Say ‘Cheeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeese!’ Nothing is more cheesy or nightmare-inducing than Secret World Legends’ various smiling emotes.”

Please stop screaming, OK? Here’s something a little more esoteric in the whole realm of emotes. It’s soothing. It’s calming. It makes me want to play cards.

“Here’s my eye candy dude in ArcheAge getting a beat down with his bunny tail,” said Toy Clown.

Now we turn things over to Hurbster with an important public service announcement. Take it away, Hurb.

“Did you know that if you spin your characters on the Elder Scrolls Online character screen they will do an emote?”

Whoa, whoa, whoa there, Minimalistway. Put some clothes on, lest the rest of us be shamed for our flabby physiques!

“As soon as World of Warcraft dropped the patch that allowed shirtless transmog, this Paladin dropped his chest armor to show his glorious tattoos,” said Mini.

Dragons, dragons, dragons. There are more dragons per capita in MMOs than giant spiders, and that’s saying something. For this week’s screenshot challenge, share pics of dragons dragoning it up! Big, small, cute, fearsome — we want to see them all!

Every week, One Shots shines a spotlight on the best community screenshots from your MMO adventures. If you have a great pic to share, email it to justin@massivelyop.com with the subject “One Shots.” Make sure that the picture is over 880px wide and comes with a description or story!

“…pics of dragons dragoning it up!…we want to see them all!”

Not playing many of my traditional MMO’s (e.g. ESO, Neverwinter) presently, but rather spending time with Red Dead Online and World of Warships.

I’d love to share of screenshot of my character “chasing the dragon” in RDO, but I’ve yet to find an Old West opium den, and I don’t think Rockstar is likely to add one to the game anytime soon.

In WoWS, however, players may select from many different ports. One is named “Dragon”, and while fictional, still makes for some lovely shots. Here, my battlecruiser Scharnhorst looks resplendent in it’s black camo against the striking backdrop.

Dragons, you say?

What about…Dragoons?

Or maybe…why not both?

*goes back to fix the order*

One of the most important Dragon ever? I got the Sweeper.
Fire-breathing Dragon? I got the Voice.
Dragon Cowgirl? Yep.
Dancing Dragon? I can do that.
Dragon and Tentacles? Got that, too.

The lighting on these isn’t great, but… the pun.

Okay, some Guild Wars 2 Dragons, too.

Spoilers below, but it’s been like… 6-12 months or more?

(No, that last one is not a cutscene and no it was not easy.)

You won’t find a dragons as majestic and fearsome as Nidhogg, Hraesvelgr and Shinryu (the Shinryu is not really a dragon but a Primal but it has a dragon shape) in any MMORPG. I do not have my own screenshots but I am sure other people will show them.
