MassivelyOP’s 2020 Golden Yachties: Most bizarre thing in an MMO this year

    
14

MassivelyOP’s not-so-serious end-of-the-year awards begin today, now affectionately named the Golden Yachties in honor of that dumb meme about how games bloggers are sailing around on a golden yacht with all their blogging money. Which is really only funny if you know how little we make and also that a gold-plated yacht would sink immediately to the bottom of the sea!

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

SELF-CRISPING PIGS

OK, so the pig minipets that Lord of the Rings Online added as part of its anniversary gift package aren’t technically called self-crisping pigs. But I can’t say that I’ve ever seen a pig carrying a wagon of fireworks around in an MMORPG before. Or that it’s ever occurred to me as a thing to want. And I also can’t really say it’s a great idea. For the pig, that is.

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.

Even if that was real gold plating it would still float for pretty much the same reason a ship made of steel doesn’t sink.

But hey… if characters in the Clone Wars need to time synchronize digital comms devices manually (S2E6) I suppose I can let this one slide.

The fact that webzen games are still going. Went back to C9 randomly a week ago. Didn’t encounter a single player in town, just goldselling bots.

The whole PvP at the grocery stores was a bit out of left field.

I think you replied to the wrong article. The one about Star Citizen is over there.

Every article can be tied to Star Citizen, just like Kevin Bacon
