In the last few weeks i have noticed people saying things like:

 

"This Team is full of monkeys"

or

"You all play like braindead monkeys"

or

"Even a Monkey would play better"

 

So, I'm wondering, do WoT-Players hate Monkeys?

 

I'mean look at them, they are so cute:

 

 

Why so much hate?

With some team members it's an insult to monkeys to be fair.

 

This guy's pretty good...

Macaques (typically seen as makak in game) have it especially tough.

Yeah... I don't understand why anybody would use "monkey". We have enough other teams to choose from. "Idiots" fits perfectly, it isn't even THAT bad in terms of bad language.

On top of that: Play logic-games (Memory, memorizing numbers/patterns, etc.) against a trained monkey. They're all unicums!

 

btw: Monkeys are highly interesting and some are even cute, but apes at least are scary as hell. Especially when it comes to their almost human-like behaviour. E.g., chimps even do "raids" in territories of other groups or fight wars. So... if Disney would do a documentary about apes, it definitely would have to be 18+ and all the gore (including ripped off limbs, raping dead bodies, killing babies and drinking blood) would be censored in most countries.

Hmmm... the team "monkey" isn't THAT bad, actually. Maybe not for idiots playing WoT, but... well...

Euphemisms aside, I find that my team consists of muppets and not monkeys... You know, fluff for brains and a hand shoved up their backside as far as it goes... :blink:

That implies someone more intelligent is controlling their actions. If only that were the case...

The problem is that words like 'noob', 'moron', windowlicker', 'knuckledragger' etc. all lose their effect due to their overuse and so we search for new phrases which carry fresh impact. Eventually 'monkey' will be overused and become redundant since the useless cretins will become immune to it. I've (shamefully) used 'monkey' so often that even for me it has lost it's credibility as an insult so I'm now searching for a fresh word. Anybody got any ideas? 

A word or phrase that is subtle yet potent. Nothing like the nasty phrases wishing someone cancer, aids, etc. These are cruel and disgusting. We have to be sportsman after all you know.........so...what's the new word for 'noob' then?

 

Oh wait, I've also noticed the word 'gypsy' being used as an insult lately, not sure how this is an insult, it must be a 'nation specific' thing?

 

PS: Apologies to all the animals of the primate kingdom, no offense ever intended when I used the word monkey...it's only because these things we play with regard themselves as intelligent beings when clearly they're not and calling them a monkey should be an insult to them since they're so self-important, kinda like calling an aristocrat a pleb or like his driver asking him to park his own car in one of his garages. I wonder if monkeys use the phrase 'you braindead red stat WoT playing human' when insulting each other?

 

PPS: Oh, I know, the worst insult to a WoT player could be 'you play worse than a WG developer' or 'don't be a community coordinator, please man'...just kidding WG :blinky:

Well. monkeys (bonobos) give each other oral sex as a greeting so they have more sex than the regular wot player. In a way, it's kinda a compliment :D
