Tonight I lost another pvp match. I haven’t won one for two weeks now, so I’m getting used to it lol. But tonight was the best worst game I’ve ever played. Terrible matchmaking had me laughing hysterically for about 10 minutes; and I’m pretty sure that even without mic coms up, there was an unspoken understanding that we were going to lose horribly.
Now, some might argue that command rank doesn’t mean much, and truth be told I would agree with that. But you’ll notice that 3/5 are sporting “old man cranky” titles (win capture by 1000 points) and another has a master of Alani. Safe to assume that this crew knows how to throw down.
It only got worse after we had spawned and I checked - on vain - for those magical green bars that are rarer than legendary drops, only to discover this…
I gave our inexperienced rag tag team about 4 minutes before it would be all over, but about two minutes in something magical happened. Without mics we somehow managed to coordinate some of the finest team work I’ve been a part of. We stuck to pure defense and turtled up around our sentry, forcing the enemy team to make risky plays. We pushed back wave after wave of base thralls, mid thralls, and giant minions. At some point our Reyna disconnected (the only player on our team that had green bars). We knew we were going to lose but nobody made any heroic attempts at pushing that would have achieved nothing but feeding the enemy. We made them earn every inch of ground they took from us! They finally took down our second sentry with only two minutes to go, but it was an exhilarating experience that I spent with a huge grin on my face. Here’s the final results
It’s been a while since I’ve enjoyed battleborn this much so I had to share
