Hallmark esports team The Barracudas snatch elusive sponsor John Deere; the corporation that manufactures agricultural, construction & forestry machinery, diesel engines and lawn care equipment.
“I’m proud to announce that the Barracudas will be arriving at every game day in a X300 Select Series Ride on Lawn Mower” Team Manager Brett “CoolStains” Murdoch told Fireball Esports on top of a 224 kW Track Harvester with a 80,170 swing torque.
Despite the face that none of the players legally know how to drive a vehicle like it, let alone operate heavy machinery, CoolStains assured us that this will be a huge boon for the burgeoning scene.
“John Deere have been very accommodating for us. They provided the team with enough green machines to clear more trees than the orcs did with Fangorn forest.”
Coolstains then proceeded to exit the interview in one of the 40,000 tonne machines, which led to a multi-car pile up and six people injured.
More to come.
