Surprisingly Accurate Banter

Before I get into it, I just have to say: I LOVE BANTER! Banter can make a game far more interesting, and it most certainly made this match more interesting.

Once the battle starts, @Iron_Salvo921 (no I'm not naming and shaming, he's awesome) chimes in all chat "Good Luck Gents," which is nice, definitely sets a good positive mood; and then he followed it up with "now die," and that's what I'm talking about with banter. My immediate response, was a prompt "You First." THAT is banter, it may have been short, but it certainly help set the mood; the "good luck gents" made it positive, and the "now die," pretty much made it game on. I was put into a very good mood with that bit of back-n-forth, I was rearing to go. So thank you iron_salvo, for that. But it gets better. Shortly after that bit of banter, I spot the Baltimore, had to wait for my fish to finish loading before I can let them swim, but once they were ready, I launched two turrets at him. Shortly after third turret is launched at a Cleveland in hopes of either getting him to back off or dead as well. Next thing I know, I get a Devastating Strike and First Blood, and I happen to catch the name of the one I killed. I prompted the next bit of banter "Told you, you first," while simultaneously laughing at the coincidence that just occurred, putting me into an even better mood. Yet it gets better still. Iron_Salvo then goes on a bit of a tirade about how I must have magical powers to have predicted such an outcome with my banter; that made my play session. He and I then divisioned up for 5 battles, and had some fun in the lower tiers, since he just finished getting Acasta and wanted to use his new ship.

I came very close to getting Kraken (I forgot to take screenshots before closing out of the game... whoops), didn't do all that much damage.

But here's the replay, watch it fast, because 7.10 is almost upon us. https://replayswows.com/replay/33334#stats

I had some good banter in an "aborted carry mode" match the enemy team was quite polite

not a bad game. Wasn't a complete steam roll. Almost had victory, things just didn't work out in the end. Some of the things that was said was certainly funny. Thanks for the share.

I start many of my games with this in all-chat:  "Reds, may your powder be wet, your barrels crooked, and your torpedoes limp!"

It almost always gets a bit of friendly banter started on both sides, which is nice.  Typically someone on the other team will point out I am red to them (Pfft, your Jedi mind tricks won't work on me, boy!), or they will say they take a blue pill for the torpedo problem (Well, may they detonate prematurely, then!!!).  Even a few simple "lol" responses are welcomed.

As I get sunk or we lose, players will sometimes remember my pre-game comment and turn it back around on me, which I think is funny, too.

It's nice to have some friendly banter at the start of the game, as there will usually be one or two that get bitter and/or want to blame everyone else for their mistakes.  It helps to offset the salt.

I've seen someone use that once before. My response to it was "You'll have to poke a hole in me, shoot out my turrets, and pray my fish don't find you first."

Banter is great, but we still have to many early death raggers to contend with.

yeah it's good to see it when both sides realize it's just a game and win or lose it should be fun

I know. But I am not afraid to say, that I still have issues with my own salt levels, that I am trying to deal with.
