Holy Mary, mother of god, was that one of the worst ass-whoopings in the history of sport.

Like, it’s so unbelievable, that it’s really difficult for me to get my thoughts straight, and post something witty.

All I know is that I would have bet on Germany winning this game, but dear god, not by a 7-1 score.  Brazil looked vulnerable throughout every game prior to this, but they literally weren’t even trying to play a game today.


League of Lobby, volume 5

Every now and then while playing League of Legends, you’ll have the unfortunate circumstance of getting paired up with a player or players, that simply don’t show up to play, in spite of the fact that they took the time to queue up and give the impression that they were going to play the game. Just about every LoL player on the planet has dealt with this unfortunate situation, and despite the fact that on occasion, a gallant undermanned victory does occur, most of the time, the team with the missing player(s) usually end up on the side of defeat.

If you’re the full team, you don’t goof off too much, you don’t spam all chat with taunts or any cocky speak, and in the likelihood you win, usually a cursory “sorry for the AFK’er” remark of some sort. The short-staffed team will make as much effort as they feel they can win, but in most cases, being a man/woman down is usually a bad obstacle that ultimately snuffs out most rallies and attempts.
