One Shots: Never crowd surf over cats with claws

    
20

If you ever find yourself at a heavy metal concert where most of the crowd is made out of bestial cat-things, trust me: Don’t crowd surf. You’re going to end up with unintended acupuncture if you do so.

I’m not sure if Miol is full of holes now, but this Guild Wars 2 concert seemed worth the pain: “It’s been a year since concerts were safe enough, so a concert in your favorite MMO is the next best thing! I must say Anet’s devs really outdone themselves on this one! The three Metal Legion songs were produced by Stan LePard, who sadly passed away recently.”

And now we turn the channel to Late Afternoon Bird Watching with Nigel Chambers. Nigel is out in the field, looking for rare and beautiful avians for our shared delight.

And lo, he’s spotted MurderHobo and a well-armed dino-bird from ARK: Survival Evolved: “I have a special fondness for this ludicrous fellow, which we used to gun down the biggest damned dodo you’ve ever seen.”

Stormwaltz dug deep into the wells of screenshot folders to help us get our feathery fix: “I haven’t taken any good screenshots in the last few weeks, but I do have some passable old bird pics from before my video card and monitor upgrade. Here is my nameless Destiny 2 character chilling with an owl at The Farm last summer.”

Aspiring Final Fantasy XIV pirate Vincent is absolutely crushing it, and don’t you tell him otherwise. I mean, if you’re going to have a bird perch and poop on your shoulder, it should be something this amazing:

“This one is an easy pick for me: Solar Spirehawk (rare drop from the world boss Rukhmar in the Spires of Arak, Draenor),” said Lucky Jinx. “I started the hunt for this beauty in December 2019, and finally got her in February 2021! For the reference, I started running Firelands raid at the same time, and got the pureblood fire hawk back in October 2020. It took me a little while, but it was worth it. Collecting these beauties is really what keeps me playing World of Warcraft still.”

There ain’t no valley low enough and ain’t no mountain high enough for your photographs, baby! This week’s screenshot challenge is to share some impressive MMO mountains (or, hey, valleys) that arrested your attention.

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!

Late on this one.

GW2 Champions really likes putting us up against these mountains of hitpoints. Eh? Eh?

I think if I squint enough I can see a mountain or valley or something in these screenshots. Possibly. Maybe. :)

The first time I came across that metal legion event in GW2 I had the music turned off in the game’s options. It made for a very surreal event!

Is there a way to post multiple images so they don’t take up the whole comment section? I’m almost sure I’ve seen them where there’s one main image, and then you can click an icon to scroll left and right through the others? Or maybe that’s not a thing anymore on this version of the site. Or it only works in articles. Or something.

I think you mean Imgur.com, you can upload photos there without account, then copy the link and put it here.

I didn’t mean the upload site. I’m not describing it correctly. Instead of having every image inline and all the same size, I thought there was a way to have one image larger, with the others as smaller thumbnails all lined up beside each other (instead of above/below.)

Doesn’t matter, I guess.

Not really, but thank you. I wasn’t aware Imgur could link an album like that.

That automatic feature in the comments section was disabled some years ago after many complaints of bugging out and losing uploaded screenshots or sometimes getting the order wrong!

And it only makes sense in a desktop environment anyway, as just scrolling on mobile is way less cumbersome!

Ah, that explains it. Thank you for clarifying.

How about some real mountains during a group flight in MSFS? This is in eastern China, following the Silk Road.

Sharing a glimpse from my current Allods shenanigans. This game has so much content, some super colorful vistas and some of the most engaging combat i’ve played among the tab target games around. Here you have random views from my adventures. I will try to eventually come with a closer look at the astral/demons side but i’ve yet to take some screenies i like.

For the challenge, I traveled to Highmountain in Broken Isles, for I believe it has some of the most impressive mountains in WoW. Then I threw in one shot just for funsies.

1. Valley deep
2. Mountain high
3. Summit view from the top of Highmountain Peak
4. Meeting past acquintances
