Why are people so annoying on the mic?

#11totemguyPosted 11/30/2012 12:01:20 AM
I have too agree on the crying kids remark, every game I play online lately, has a kid crying in the back ground. Another thing is the needy girlfriend or wife, I mean come on if I can tell over the headset what she is wanting, are they really that clueless? Also to those playing Gangnam style over the mic.....................please just please!

What I can't stand is people saying that they are awesome....because no lag issues maybe.

But mostly you actually find someone you understand and they start hurling abuse for no reason.

Get a legit headset where you can mute all the chatting.

Screaming and crying babies has to be one of the all time top 10 most annoying noises. Play the game without your headset if your overgrown fetus won't SHUT UP.

That's not the point. Its really easy to just mute all, even if your headset doesn't have a separate chat volume control.

My issue is when I go back and turn my teams mics back on, especially in League. I always give them a shot to see if we can actually communicate as we play, but often I have to re-mute them.

I also find that there is a very big difference between constant annoyance and annoying sounds. Constant static or crying is something I will mute, but a bird squawking or child interruption is less of an issue as it is just occasional. Easy to put up with if they are good and call stuff out.

It's a shame the lack of common sense and decency people have. The second thing I always did when my babies would screem was turn my mic off. The first thing would be to yell in the mic a few times "somebody shut that baby up".

You're talking about a game that is widely popular, and thus attracts the "mass market" ... the majority of the mass market is not high-brow, well-educated, thoughtful and sensitive people - it's mostly lower educated and young people, who get their social skills from MTV ... what do you expect...
