Do you like World of Warships? Do you like Transformers? If the answer to both of those questions is “yes,” you are the reason why today hurts me so dang much. There is a crossover event running in the game with a franchise I very much enjoy that keeps not happening as a proper MMO, but now you can boat around with Optimus Prime as you blow up other boats. Optimus Prime, you will note, has never actually transformed into a boat, so that’s awesome.
Neither have Bumblebee or Rumble, for that matter. (There was a boat mode for a Megatron at one point.) Shed a tear for Tidal Wave, Splashdown, Submarauder, Seaspray, Thunderblast, Depthcharge, Undertow, Broadside, and all the other Autobots and Decepticons who usually turn into boats but don’t get to be a part of this promotion.But this is a thing. To quote the original cartoon, transform and roll out… into the water, at which point you will be underwater. Why is anything anything.
