Weekend Potatoes.

 

The scourge of anyone who wishes to even see a semblance of competence from both teams.

That's right. Both teams.

 

Brace thine selves for cringe-worthy scenarios that are inexplicably... Potato.

Last week's experience included:

  • A campfest in the Strait map where the first death occurs after 7 minutes and over half the team on both sides somehow survive until the timer hits 0. Standard battle: T4-6.
  • Lemming Penguins!~ Scenarios where the entire team lemming trains on large domination maps like Land of Fire and shoves and jostles each other in hopes that the first penguin tests the waters for seals(Torpedoes), none of the 3 DDs want to cap and A point was uncapped the entire match.
  • Two potatoes in the same team shooting each other using battleship HE rounds- Just because they booped each other's ship in the butt. Needless to say, 5k of their HP was gone and was promptly shot at by the enemy because of their guns' concealment penalty.
  • Eternal Poi spam
  • Potatoes going alone in open waters for no explainable reason- Blames team for not supporting them.
  • CVs dueling each other the entire match without regard for their team- Postbattle report: Both teams' CVs are the bottom 3 of both teams.
  • CVs attempting to strike a full-HP NoCar escorted by an Atlanta within the first 3 minutes- Using Ryujo.
  • Similarly, CVs that ignore the fact that their interceptors are about to fly in range of ludicrous AA.

 

Hide in yo' divs.

 

Potatoes.

The potatoes.

The potatoes cometh!

 

You get a potato!

You get a potato!!

You also get a potato!!!

EVERYONE GETS A POTATO!!!~

 

Now accepting div requests to mitigate the effects of the weekly potato season.

I may be a little too ignorant on how my team mates do, but I don't really see the difference between teams I get during weekdays and weekends.

 

If there was a x3 EXP event on the other hand... :playing:

In weekday at lower tiers, that shit happens too.  You can totally get like 7 kills and lose.  But somehow during weekends there is a noticeable increase in the frequency of YOLO behavior DDs and Cruisers, and the potatoes also appear at tier 8+.  If they happen to be on the enemy team I get 7 minute victories.  If both my team and the enemy team are full of potatoes I get shit tons of damage (erhmm 194k in Kirishima).  Else I will struggle to carry and then die a slow death lol.

When I saw the title I thought the German BBs would become freely available (given the amount of hype).

And I find weekend gameplay more enjoyable, because the server will be full of BB players who have never heard of a rudder and will proceed to eat multiple type 93 torps.

Both teams being potato = Farmville. Good guy WG giving us a free copy of Farmville.

In this game, I saw at least 2 CA players YOLOing into Battleships and flashing their broadsides, and somehow I failed to carry the win again. The game has once again let me down.

Even tier X is not immune to the effects of this.  Just saw a Shimakaze refuse to give up a cap an die to two gunboats...

First few games this weekend and I'm welcomed by my Amagi sinking in a blaze of fire only managing to do 8k damage.

 

Yeah, not a good sign. Sorry Team~
