About

Woomy United Today refers to a tag started by YouTuber GG Gabriel Gaming for players of the Nintendo video game Splatoon 2 who preferred to goof off, or "Squid Party," in online matches instead of attempt to win. The YouTuber set out a specific set of rules to help ensure such people could enjoy the game without ruining the experience of more serious players, but the tag became notorious after the rules were abused.

Origin

On November 9th, 2017, YouTuber GG Gabriel Gaming posted an announcement of the "Woomy United Today," a tag for Splatoon 2 players who preferred to have less competitive fun, or "Squid Parties," in online matches than serious players (shown below, left). The following week, they posted another video (shown below, right) which outlined the rules:

Don't squid party in Ranked Mode
Don't force squid parties in Turf Wars
Prioritize private lobbies for parties



Spread

The creation of the group was initially successful. GG Gabriel Gaming uploaded two videos in 2017 demonstrating "How to Squid Party" (shown below) and it appeared as though the rules he set out were being followed successfully. Additionally, merchandise was created for the group.[3]



However, abusers of the rules led to the tag becoming infamous and GG Gabriel Gaming being blamed and harassed for his creation of the group.[1] On January 14th, 2018, he released a video apologizing for the behavior of "WUT" players breaking the rules and reiterating the rules (shown below).



The tag became infamous among Splatoon 2 players. For example, an April 11th, 2018 post to /r/splatoon_2 about how to join "WUT" was flooded by players mocking the group and discouraging the poster to join.[2] Another post to the subreddit asked what "WUT" signified,[4] with many posters responding with mocking acronyms such as "We’re unbelievably trash" and "Woah, Useless Teammates."
