People that play without sound frustrate me

I get that some people enjoy listening to music or something while they play, that's fine. But one thing that just aggravates me in pub games is when I call mia (which I do over the mic generally) and they don't hear it since their sound is off, then they proceed to rage at me for not calling missing. If people want to ignore sound missing calls then it should be their own responsibility to pay attention to who is missing, its not my job to cater to your preference of mia call methods. /rant

The only thing you control is your own actions. If you want to maximize your chances use the method of communication that reaches the most people.
And with that...pow! I'm gone!

So what if someone wants to play without sound AND blindfolded? Does it become my responsibility to install Dota on a laptop and pick up the other 3 members from their houses and drive to Mr. Blindfold's house to communicate with him?

Microphones are included as a standard feature in Dota 2. No one should have to NOT use microphones just because their teammates want to listen to music.

Now, granted I understand that you aren't saying that it's right, simply that he has no control over it, but it should be a reportable offense. It's deliberately doing something that damages the efficacy of your own team. I don't even care if the reports actually go through to Valve, I just want the other person to realise that it's freaking stupid to play a team oriented game and listen to music.

On that note, I've actually had someone abuse a teammate for not calling missing (he did, over mic) BEFORE that teammate told us he didn't have sound on. Like, he was genuinely fuming because our microphone using teammate couldn't read his mind.

Some (most from my experience) peoples' mics are REALLY QUIET. So it's not that we don't want to hear you. We can't hear you. And I even have headphones on at a high sound level.

how about not being able to turn off mic even if you turn off sound option? that would be kinda better

What annoys me even more is when people use mics and literally no one can hear them ALL game. We repeat that fact to them all game, and they still continue to use it and not communicate in text.
