Korean Baseball team, the NC Dinos, recently won the Korean Baseball Organization's championship. It's notable, not because the team went 4-2 over the Doosan Bears, but that the team is owned by MMO publisher NCSoft. So of course they celebrated in a huge way.
The celebrated its championship in the only way a team owned by a giant MMO company could: by holding aloft a huge sword from one of the company's franchises, Lineage.
Per a tweet from Sung Min Kim, a former sports journalist, the NC Dinos brought to life the Execution Sword, one of Lineage's most powerful items.
The NCSoft, the parent company of the NC Dinos, is well-known for their mobile games, including the acclaimed "Lineage" series. One of the biggest items in the game is the big sword (???) and it is brought to life in the ceremony. #KBO https://t.co/4v033TpjTx— Sung Min Kim (@sung_minkim) November 24, 2020
Honestly, we need more MMO and sporting event crossovers like this - and I'm not sure I would have had "Korean baseball franchise holds aloft Lineage sword" on my 2020 bingo card.
