(I was inso-m-niac BY THE WAY)
Berthold and Reiner are both League of Legends players. HARDCORE.
Annie doesn’t understand. She rather lie down with her laptop in bed and just watch Netflix.
But Bert is like NO. REINER NO. DONT DO THAT REINER I TOLD YOU GOD DAMN IT REINER.
And Reiner’s just laughing his ass off.
Annie gets curious. What is so fun. Why are they shouting in the other room. Why is Bertholdt so loud when he plays League but he’s so quiet most of the time.
So she asks them to add her to a Skype call so they can screen share (They take turns sharing their screens so she can watch) so she can lie in bed and “join” their game.
Annie ends up joining them for real and kicks ass from her room.
YES. I agree with this. Hardcore. I’ve never really gotten into League or any of those kinds of games, so I can’t get more specific of the shenanigans that would go down, but Reiner would totally pull Leroy Jenkins-sque moves and piss everyone off (yeah I know that’s WOW-related, but you know he would).
And Bertl is such a serious player, he’ll never curse anyone out in game, because he’s still painfully polite, but he’ll totally mute his headset and just scream about everyone’s general ineptitude. Reiner likes to poke the bear with a stick by being like “Wow Bertl it’s only a game, don’t have a cow bro.” Which usually earns him an empty water bottle to the head.
Charmsandpandas drew something awhile back of Bert and Reiner in an MMORPG guild and that was actually the first thing I thought of when I read this.
