Why don't people use their mics anymore?

I mute everyone on the options instantly. Rather not hear some dumb people throwing insults or having conversations about crap with strangers while I'm trying to play.

Getting awfully tired of GameFAQs mods removing my posts for being "offensive" when I've done nothing wrong

You don't miss those that might be helping you? I regularly help players if they don't see someone coming.

Again, I don't hear many annoying players.

Why do people want to go online to talk to people they don't know?

If I'm playing w/ a buddy, OK.

Middle school kids from Alabama? Uhh, no

I don't like talking with a bunch of strangers online honestly.

Because most of the online play is team-oriented. Why are you playing a team-oriented multiplayer game but not acting accordingly?

The above works for you, too.

1. Where's Solo Slayer? I'll play it

2. Everytime I forget to hit mute on the online players, I hear a bunch of douchiness & then remember why I mute them. You're probably one of them

That's the point, there isn't one. Why are you playing as if there is?

Again, I've only encountered one annoying kid while playing online. My experience with those that have mics have been strategists and no-talkers. My talking is limited to game commands and references.

Too bad the above isn't well thought out. I missed the part where talking is integral to killing people and capturing/defending objectives in multiplayer. If I'm doing what needs to be done and contributing to the team, I really could care less about talking to you.

It isn't just about you. Yes, it's great you do attempt team work, but it's seriously lacking if you are not communicating with your team mate.

*taps glass* CHEERS! Here's to us hoping we work as a cohesive unit without uttering a word!
