This user gives the Phat Beet a 9/10 rating because he does awesome radial damage.
This user gives the Celery Stalker a 7/10 rating because although he attacks as an awesome backstab, he can be really vulnerable to eating while doing his attack, especially in groups of zombies.
This user gives the Thyme Warp a 9.5/10 rating because he is AWESOME. I gave him 9.5 because he is world exclusive unfortunately.
This user gives the Garlic a 5/10 rating because needs higher health. Also, its costumes look ugly.
This user gives the Spore-shroom a 7.5/10 rating because although I don't tend to use him much, he has a pretty cool ability of spawning new versions of itself when defeating a zombie. Its damage can be higher though.
This user gives the Intensive Carrot a 8.5/10 rating because only useful for powerful plants. Awesome ability of being able to bring back boosts of plants back when reviving. Sadly, only revives defence plants in half-stage...
This user gives the Snow Pea a 4.5/10 rating because he is not really useful, although he IS the only plant that can slow down Zombie Chickens...
This user gives the Squash a 7/10 rating because although a rather slow recharge, he can be powerful to zombie hordes.
This user gives the Torchwood a 7/10 rating because nice ability to turn peas into fire peas and napalm peas. 175 sun though...
This user gives the Jalapeno a 6.5/10 rating because it has a rather slow recharge. Also, it only affects a lane. Nothing much.
This user gives the Imitater a N/A/10 rating because it's a cool plant. Otherwise, the rating depends on the plant being imitated.
This user gives the Starfruit a 10/10 rating because it shoots five directions, better than the Rotobaga. Also, it's very Starfruity 😜
This user gives the Hypno-shroom a 6/10 rating because it has a powerful PF effect. Otherwise, it's only powerful for strong zombies that can EAT it.
This user gives the Chomper a 1/10 rating because it simply sucks.
This user gives the Cactus a 9/10 rating because he has an awesome ability to pierce its projectiles through zombies as well as hiding underground when zombies are near, compared to its counterpart in the first game.
This user gives the Power Lily a 6/10 rating because of its recharge though...
This user gives the Pea-nut a 6/10 rating because it has a slow recharge, and not very high health.
This user gives the Sap-fling a 2.5/10 rating because it's uselss. I'd rather spend 0 sun on slowing down a group of zombies with Stallia...seriously, this thing doesn't even do damage, and a 150 sun cost? No.
This user gives the Toadstool a 4/10 rating because at least it's better than the dreadful Chomper...
This user gives the Strawburst a 5/10 rating because it takes too long to grow to its full size. Use Coconut Cannon instead.
This user gives the Electric Blueberry a 6/10 rating because although a phenomenal attack, it's too random, it has a very slow recharge and costs US $7?!
This user gives the Jack O' Lantern a 5.5/10 rating because it's not really that good...
This user gives the Grapeshot a 10/10 rating because he is an AWESOME upgrade to the Cherry Bomb. But why the US $7?
This user gives the Cold Snapdragon a 10/10 rating because 1) Fast recharge; 2) Doesn't cost US $7; 3) OP PF effect, what else can you ask for?
This user gives the Ghost Pepper a 7.5/10 rating because the damage it deals is not very high, but it can't be eaten and it costs gems.
This user gives the Homing Thistle a 4/10 rating because its attacks are very random.
This user gives the Sweet Potato a 5.5/10 rating because I only find it good with one-lane AOE plants.
This user gives the Hurrikale a 7/10 rating because I like its ability to chill and push back zombies. Too bad it couldn't have a whole-lawn range.
This user gives the Fire Peashooter a 7/10 rating because it's useful for thawing plants in the Frostbite Caves. Good Plant Food as well. Just a rather uneasy sun cost.
This user gives the Dandelion a 3/10 rating because it is simply not my favourite at all.
This user gives the Lava Guava a 6/10 rating because it is okaay, not bad and not good.
This user gives the Jack O' Lantern a 7/10 rating because it is a nice plant, but it could be better if tapping wasn't required.
This user gives the Shrinking Violet a 7.5/10 rating because it is great against small imps and animals.
This user gives the Blooming Heart a 4/10 rating because it is just a slightly better Cabbage-pult.
This user gives the Escape Root a 8/10 rating because I love its ability to swop plants and be able to be an explosive.
This user gives the Gold Bloom a 10/10 rating because Holy s**t, the best sun producer! 0 sun, usable at the start of a level, giving 375 sun. Wow.
This user gives the Aloe a 1/10 rating because it's useless.
This user gives the Wasabi Whip a 7/10 rating because it's an upgrade of Bonk Choy. It's decent as well. If only there could have been an ice version....
This user gives the Explode-O-Nut a 9/10 rating because it's fantastic. Gargantuar walks in, saying "you ain't no special nut..." and when he smashes it, boom. When he smashes the shield, boom. Maybe faster recharge would be preferred though.
This user gives the Kiwibeast a 8/10 rating because it's special. The more the damage, the bigger it gets?! That's very unique.
This user gives the Bombegranate a 7/10 rating because it's really just a cross of Cherry Bomb and Lava Guava. But it's decent.
This user gives the Apple Mortar a 4/10 rating because it sucks.
This user gives the Witch Hazel a 6/10 rating because it's a plant version of Wizard, sure, but attack rate sucks, real money cost sucks, and the plants they transform zombies to suck.
PrimitivePotatoMine - A very nice user, and we started off as friends on March 13, 2016. Then, meeting each other on forums and on chat more often, we became best friends gradually around the beginning to middle of August, 2016. As of Monday, 22 August 2016, he has become one of my best of the best friends on the wiki. I also like the PPM. :P
Nick Archer - As well as PPM, a very nice content moderator, and he became my "associate of battle games" on Monday, 25th July. We became friends during summer of 2016, and as of Monday, 22 August 2016, he became one of my best of the best friends on the wiki. I'm decent with archery too. :P
Pinkgirl234 - A very nice female filipino forum mod. I'm her fifth senpai.
Zambiealex - Sometimes too overreacting, however he has changed from the past.
4 words to describe how I came here: I love the game.
(Written on Sept 27 2016) Due to the current shortage of admins (it is increasing but the more the better), I'll push myself to attempt a thread for the position in the starting months of 2017. And I did. I was once a forum moderator (or discussion moderator if I remember correctly) however due to school I stopped playing and became slightly inactive. I do hop on the wiki now and again to see what's coming in future updates, but things that I will likely not do include running for a staff position again, or actively playing the game.
My Gaming History
So, I started the sequel, Plants vs. Zombies 2, in the beginning of 2014. I was introduced to this game by a friend of mine. After playing for around one year, I found this game extremely cool and interesting. I was just searching around the world-wide web to find if there was a website to give all information on the game, and I found this wiki. When I saw this wiki, I was surprised to see how much information this wiki provides. I decided to make an account here, I called myself 'Imacherrybombyay125', because I like Cherry Bombs and I was born on December 5. I was firstly inactive for the first one and a half months, but later on, I remembered I had an account here, and I started editing. When Neon Mixtape Tour Side A came out, I loved the MC Zom-B, so I decided to rename myself into 'Microphone DJ 125'. I tried to apply for a staff member 5 times, but all tries failed. I was sad. But luckily, I made various friends here, playing around on chat and also the Forum of Wisdom. I have lots of friends here, who help me with various things. This wiki is awesome, and I hope some day for this wiki to become popular on the world-wide web. However, as 2017 arrived, I gradually lost interest in the game, which, I know, is pretty weird, considering that the level-up plants system has been released. Anyway, if any staff (contend mod or higher) reads through this section, please mark me as "partially active", as I do come around every now and then (as I said in the above section).
Note: The battle stuff below will be kept on my user page in case anyone wants to create it. I will only revive the series if I become active again.
During the event of a battle, one user may call out STEAL!, Counting Catastrophe (3-14x), IMMOBILISER, SVSN, ESCAPE, IWC, CP, REVERSE FLOW, or UNDO.
All Battle Features, with the exception of Reverse Flow, will receive a huge nerf during October 2016, and won't be able to be used until November 1, 2016, also known as the 2.4 update. Some battle features may be removed or added However, the following will be guaranteed to be kept:
Steals and Escapes
Counting Catastrophe and Immobilisers
Shrinking Violet's Small Numbers
Intense Wipeout Counting and Crazy Protocol
Reverse Flow and Undo
Please note that if there are 2 or more battle features in one row (above), that means that the latter is used to counter the former, OR that they both come in pairs. However, just because they are meant to be together DOES NOT MEAN that they will be both used in a same battle.
Trivia regarding Battle Features, as of the 2.4 update
EMERGENCY was removed.
STEAL rules were changed, credits to Happy-shroom.
UNDO was added.
**Please note that, unless requested, Battle of the Users will always have a theme tied to it.
A steal is when one user gains the ability to steal another user in the opposite counting team.
E.G. I steal TULO. TULO MUST count for our team, and not wait until his steal is over.
TULO is not allowed to steal ANYONE back, and must do nothing apart from helping my team. However, stolen users can use WSN as a slight advantage.
Steals now no longer are based on time, but are based on quantity. For a detailed explanation of what this means, look below.
As of the 2.4 update, Steals won't last for an amount of time, but will rather be based on how many numbers the stolen user counts. The stolen user must count 20 numbers for the opponent team. This is due to people being busy and not being online when their steals are in session.
IMMOBILIZERs do not apply to steals. Instead, use ESCAPEs.
Formula: STEAL! User
You are (only) allowed to steal up to 1 user(s) now.
2 steals per day in general.
ESCAPEs can apply to steals, but can only be used when 30 or less points from the opposing team winning.
2.4 Update released. Currently unavailable until N/A.
Counting Catastrophe allows you, between the time limits of every first 10 minutes of every hour (i.e. 1:00am - 1:10am, 2:00am - 2:10am, etc. ) to post 3-14 numbers consecutively, all numbers in one post. CC stands for Counting Catastrophe. You can only use 4 CC per day. Please note that the CC range is from 3 numbers to 14 numbers.
CC lasts for one post.
You must type out the following formula in order for a CC to work, I'll use a random number as an EXAMPLE,
Please note that you can post twice consecutively for CC
**On Public Holidays (in HK), time limits increase to: every first 20 minutes of every hour HKT.
2.4 update released. Currently unavailable until N/A
Immobilizer is a feature added to battles on Saturday, 26 Sept, 2015. It allows you to stop any other user, from the opposing team, from doing the same thing (e.g. CC). Immobilizers can be used at any time. They last for 1 hour. This battle feature is used to counter CCs.
E.G. I say Counting Catastrophe (10x) = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10
AWikiBoy521 then says Counting Catastrophe (10x) = 9,8,7,6,5,4,3,2,1,0
I can then say... IMMOBILIZER to AWikiBoy521!
He is now prohibited from using a counting catastrophe for 1 hours.
2.4 update unreleased. Currently unavailable until N/A
Escape is a feature added to battles on Thursday, 12 Nov, 2015.
Escapes allow you to prevent yourself from being stolen. However..........Escapes only work if you are 30 or less points from your opposing team winning. You can use them unlimited times a day.
For the formula, just type escape in caps, like this: ESCAPE!
2.4 Update released. Currently unavailable until N/A
Shrinking Violet's Small Numbers
Shrinking VIolet's Small Numbers is a feature added to battles on Thursday, 12 Nov, 2015.
Shrinking Violet's Small Numbers (or SVSN) allows you to make everyone (including yourself) to count 0.5
Me: WSN! 4.5
Lasts for one hour. Only 2 WSN usable per day (HKT).
2.4 update released. Currently unavailable until N/A
Battle of the Users, Season 2 is the sequel to Battle of the Users. BOTU 2 is much more complicated with new battle features and interesting themes. Of course, battle features from season 1 will also be implemented in season 2. BOTU 2 was released on June 9, with its educational premiere. New battle features include:
Crazy Protocol (basically a lite version of IWC): I call out specific numbers (multiples) to be omitted in counting, if counted, have to start 20 numbers behind current one.
Undo: Undo Reverse Flow.
Intense Wipeout Counting: A complicated version of Crazy Protocol. I call out VERY random numbers to be omitted in counting, if counted, have to start 10 numbers behind current one.
Reverse Flow: Users counting up count down, and users counting down count up. All steals immediately expire if reverse flow is called in. Reverse Flow lasts for an hour. Formula: Reverse Flow! Introduced in Battle 7 in BOTU 2.
Environmental Modifiers: Introduced in Battle 5 of BOTU 2. They can trigger on and off battle features.
Petrifying Pentagon (named after the building, The Pentagon)
New Year 2017 Special: Crazy Casino
Season 2 finale: Plants vs. Zombies (Team version of ZvZA)
Note: As of January 1, 2017, MC Zom-B decided to only have 7 episodes of BOTU 2 due to studies. The remaining themes may or may not be used in Season 3, or a very highly unlikely Season 4 of BOTU.
Battle of the Users, Season 3
The 3rd season of the popular series, BOTU, was found in the MC Zom-B files. As of January 21st, 2017, we found out that the release date was pushed all the way to the end of the year. However, there are signs that this is a "false discovery", which means that somebody may have hacked into the files and added the info in. We suspect this because the files don't look like the files from BOTU 1 and 2. They should be file_Battle_Users_3_:/_specials_ .... . However, down below they are not like that. Compare the two.
Found in the code as of November 1st 2016, it appears the Season 3 finale will be based off a count race along with dealing damage. Furthermore, the official number of episodes was revealed to be 8.
As of April 4th 2017, MC Zom-B announced that Battle of the Users 3 would be delayed for at least 1 year due to inactivity and studies.
As of August 14th 2018, MC Zom-B announced that unless he actively returns to the PvZ Wiki, all battles in the codes will not be used and there will not be a Season 3.
As of August 26th, 2019, MC Zom-B hinted a possible return to the PvZ wiki in the far future but had no plants currently. He also stated he has started to play some PvZ2 again after a few years' break, where he focussed on one of Supercell's newest games Brawl Stars. "I might bring back BOTU if I return but we'll see."
New themes were recently found in the code as of 24th April, 2016.
Season Finale: Plants vs. Zombies 2
Battle of the Users Season 4
On a conference on March 17, 2017, MC Zom-B hinted a possible yet highly unlikely Season 4. "I cancelled episodes of Season 2 and delayed Season 3 big time due to studies. I may not even release Season 3 of BOTU, but if I do it'll be regarding natural hazards and disasters. I may have time for a Season 4 in the future, though it is highly unlikely, as I may have completely retired from the BOTU department. However, if Season 4 does happen, it'll be released after 2020, and will be more intense than ever, featuring some roleplays and action. Movie characters such as Tom Cruise may even take part. Who knows. Users should expect no new BOTUs or battles for 2017. " In an interview in early August 2018, MC Zom-B stated that he will no longer run battles unless he returns actively. He also said that anyone could feel free to resume battles. In an interview in late August 2019, MC Zom-B hinted a potential return to the Plants vs. Zombies wiki in the future but also stated he had no plans yet.
Battle of the Users - Challenge Mode
Battle of the Users - Challenge Mode is an another twist of the original BOTU, which will contain Complicated Counting (will be presented in BOTU Season 2) and Super Complicated Counting (currently unused). And because of that, this mode is for those who's getting bored with the original BOTU and also, for testing your skills. Also, there are no enemies in Challenge Mode.
