MassivelyOP’s 2022 Golden Yachties: Favorite MMO site even madder about the P2E invasion than we are


MassivelyOP’s not-so-serious end-of-the-year awards continue today with our pick for favorite MMO site even madder about the P2E invasion than we are. (We call these silly awards the Golden Yachties in honor of that dank meme about how games bloggers sail around on a golden yacht with all their blogging money. Obviously, our yacht is constructed from rhodium-encrusted moonrock, not mere gold.)

And the winner is…


Look, the MOP writers, readers, and even most of our haters have all made it very, very clear that we’re sick of the crypto clownshow – the invasion of our genre by play-to-earn hucksters, blockchain scammers, NFT swindlers, and metaverse charlatans. The whole thing is gross, and we all see exactly what these companies are doing when they buy up struggling MMOs and try to gild them with token sales meant to fool not gamers but crypto zombies, and we say this in pretty much every post.

But Connor at MMO Fallout is just as mad as we are – perhaps even more. He has bestowed upon crypto scams such eloquent terms as “stupid town,” which is accurate. He was first to call out Kritika for trying to sell $50 crypto toons. He referred to Legends of Aria’s token-collapse-and-rename as going into “witness protection,” which is still making me giggle three months later. “TitanReach?” he asked. “More like belongs in the trash.” You guys, you should be reading this site, on all things, but especially on the crypto MMO rackets. It is cathartic.

Connor is all out of fucks to give for these “games.” Otherwise we have no opinion on the matter.
