The other team was some team from 4chan or something like that - someone gets given an awful team (or they make an awful team for themselves), they need to battle on Showdown with it and try and win with it. All of the other people that joined were just there to annoy you.

And no, you weren't a scrub. A scrub would have lost that battle.


oooh so thats what a scrub means here
sorry was not familiar with the pun in this area


Scrub, in the context of video games, basically means someone who is a terrible player or is completely clueless about basic game strategy. It's also a fairly negative term.

When did the term "scrub" turn into "a player who's very bad",and why?

Anyone knows the history of this?

The term derives from Street Fighter II, to describe some players that were so bad that they would mash their hands across the control pad, an act known as "scrubbing," because it relates to scrubbing a car or other object with a sponge. Thus they were deemed "scrubbers," or "scrubs" for short
