Have you ever sent postive messages to someone over live?

Like when a team mate or opponent is doing really well?


Someone was kicking butt on gears 3 just now(I mostly play against him) and I had to send him a message.

Guy was really good. I think his name was olmyyph or something.

No... that's what my mic is for. And if he's not wearing a mic to hear, then he doesn't deserve the compliment. You can be skilled solo, but the best players are the ones that can effectively communicate, anyway.

Even if I wanted to send a quick message, I find the 360 dashboard to be too slow to bother with.

I've seen tons of players kick ass without a mic. I only use one if I'm playing a match that really needs it. Or if I'm playing with friends.

I remember sending a quick compliment on 2 separate occasions to a teammate in Battlefield: BC 2. One of them sent a voice message replying in kind, and I was surprised to hear it was a kid. This one was someone with that XxX thing on his tag too. Proof that not all kids are horrible monster stereotypes on LIVE.

Yes, on Battlefield 3.

I sent him a message praising his tremendous piloting skill in the Helicopter while I was the gunner.

I have done the same.

Guy was flying a chopper into tunnels at full speed with no problem.

Yes, I compliment people on a regular basis. It's something this world lacks, and when I say lack, I mean it. People are cruel on live. I send nice messages quite a lot to people who were simply fun to play with, or polite.

Hoping I will make someone's day one of these days.

Funnily enough, that's exactly what I complimented the kid for. Except he was basically just circle strafing (Rush), but nonetheless he could fly the thing well for a low rank player. Responded to the 'pick me up' command too! That hardly ever happens.

Remember.... violence is NEVER the answer. Sometimes, though, it's the question... and the answer is "Yes".

This is my MO, too. I think having received a positive message a long time ago made me more likely to send positive messages, so I kind of hope it gets some momentum and that people on XBL start getting nicer in general...we can always hope, right?
