Gather friends, and I shall tell you of some very silly ■■■■. The other night, I was playing with my buddy Exeter Squid when he mentioned that he needed some Mellka lore knocked out. He said that he needed to play a match with Ghalt, and myself and three strangers decided to be chivalrous at the same time. 1 Mellka. 4 Ghalts. 1 very happy Reyna on the opposing team. Thus was Party Mode (called that because it’s a Ghalt Party, or a Toby Party, etc…) born.
The mode itself is simple. Everyone plays as the same character, and observe the ■■■■-up cascade that results from this. A 5 Boldur team, for example, is like a school of angry, hairy pirhanas. We stayed as a group, ganging up on each enemy and viciously destroying their kneecaps in a way that would make ISIC shed a single pixelated tear. On the other hand, a well-coordinated team of Tobys with the Double Hug equipped can make an entire lane look like the minefield from Finding Nemo. The Angry Penguin Army is unstoppable. Thus far, the All Montana team (AKA Team Ultimate Muscle) was the most broken. Concentrated fire on anything causes pretty much instant death.
I made this thread because I wanted to see if anyone else did this, and if not, I wanted to introduce the practice to the community. So if you want to make Bots Battle even dumber, go ahead and queue up with some friends or some randos and see if you can get them to agree to this particular brand of idiocy. It’s a wonderful bonding experience and guaranteed to get laughs. If you do, come back here and share stories and team names.
Wow, I just sounded hopeful and earnest in front of the internet. Gonna regret that later.
