KO2 in real life

Postby Steve Camber » Wed Jul 04, 2018 10:57 pm

I saw in the news recently that people are recreating KO2 in real life with real people. There's even a big event going on in Russia right now.
It's a bit slow, everyone keeps falling over, the games drag on for 90 minutes instead of 10, goals are rare and there's this guy dressed in black who runs around blowing a whistle every few seconds while getting moaned at. Not sure what they were thinking there.
Anyway, if you come across it, have a look.

Too few lobs and too many situations where players just fall over and the ref still blows the whistle for this to be a proper recreation of ko2.

Organizer syndrome has kicked in. Interesting.

I think they've screwed up the team skill stats. It's all gone a bit weird.
