Laughing at defeated opponents, bragging about your achievements, overdoing it with taunts and emotes, can make you look childish. This is all a matter of perspective, though. Don't read this and think my advice is not to taunt other players. I am just saying do not get out of control. When trying to give someone an incentive to FRAG you.

Getting out of control taunting the others is a bit immature and even a child knows better. You don't need to insult others personally so just be a good sport. Can't the others just enough to get them to attack you. That's all you need to do. You don't need to berate someone so much to get them to want to attack you. They already want to come after you to improve their stats and feel like a better player when they play the game.

A good insult at the right time can be a beautiful thing. But when you bombard someone with insults after every move it gets old quickly. So don't do it it is not a necessary tactic to use. If your opponent is already online and playing it pretty good indicator that they want to attack you. So don't worry about it they will be coming after you.

When someone bombards you with insult after insult it almost begins to feel like spam. Nobody wants to feel like they're getting spam as they play their favorite games. So don't think just because you are not trying to sell something or trying to get people to go somewhere online you're not a spammer. As far as I am concerned, a spammer does the same thing over and over again until you are annoyed so much that you don't want to play anymore. So just be aware of your insults are getting out of control to others.

The other side of this coin is this, make sure you can take an insult as well as give it. Of course it's more fun being one to dish out the insults. But remember, the sign of a well balanced player is one that can take the insults as well. Just remember it's part of the game that someone else tries to bait you into attacking them by dishing out some playful insults as well. Don't hang on to them all day. Because they aren't meant to go any further than the current game you're playing. They aren't meant to ruin your day or night. They are meant to pull you out of your hiding spot and give your enemy a clear shot of your location. Don't hang on to the insults they really are only meant to last the length of your current game.

A sign of a balanced and experienced player is being a good sport. You may need to reevaluate the type of player you are if you can't deal with the basics of playing the game. I know this may be tough for some of you but you don't need to hold on to the last game you played forever. You have to let the water roll off your back like it does for the duck. Taking this simple advice will make you a much better player to play against when playing online. Just ask the other players in the room.

Keep insults and smack talk game related. Never insult someone's religion or personal beliefs. Don't be a racist. Just as in the real world, hate is hate and is unacceptable

Please keep the insults to playing the game. What is the purpose of talking smack about something that is not even game related? Now I know smack talk is an important aspect of the game and that's my point of the game! Why to bring up something that has nothing to do with what you are doing right now?


Smack talk and insults are a crucial part of the fun of the game. It is not that fun, if you have to defend your religious beliefs or political views. Why should you have to defend the spring when you're just playing a simple videogame? We are here to escape all that silliness anyway. Why bring it into the game? This isn't the real world. Treating it like it is.


There is no reason to insult someone's religious views when you can insult their weak game playing abilities. I think it is much more gratifying to rub someone's nose in the fact that I just annihilated them and there's nothing they can do about it. It is much more entertaining and gratifying to insult someone you just fragged to oblivion than insult them about their candidate losing an election. What does that have to do with gameplay anyway?


I mean come on, we are here to escape the real world. Not bring it into our fantasy world. Why would you even want to bring that real world into a game? I thought we were all here to have a good time and you can't have a good time when someone is insulting you personally.


The point is this, there is no place in the gaming world for personal insults to another player. It is tasteless and an immature way of playing the game. If you can't hold your own without spouting personal insults then maybe you should go to practice some more. You are not welcome in any of my games.

Try to ignore insults

I know it's tough but try to ignore insults. They are part of the game so just remember that they are not personal even though they may sound that way. I know this advice is a lot easier said than done, but to be a truly successful player you must learn not to listen to others say about you while you're playing the game.

Most players try to bait you into making a poor decision game wise by playing on your emotions. I know someone who uses this technique to his advantage all the time. We were playing a game and he gave me a look that let me know that he was about to do something that he thought was funny. He then turned around and insulted one of the players who he was playing against in the game. The player got so worked up about it came out of hiding and tried to charge my friend. After he got FRAGGED and the game had and we both sat back and had a big laugh about it.

What was so funny about the situation was the player had my buddy pinned down. If he just stopped and not played with his emotions. He probably would've survived. There was absolutely no need for him to blow his cover and charge my friend. Yet he did. He led the insult get the best of him and he paid the ultimate price.Sometimes players will insult you in such a way that you feel that you can't ignore it.

Just remember that you can pretty much ignore any insult out there. Some players will even get super personal just hoping that you will blow it and get caught up in the emotions of the game. Some people will insult your family, your political beliefs, and anything else that they know will get a rise out of you. Just remember when you fall for their ploys most likely you will lose.If you are having trouble ignoring someone's insults just sit back and let them tire themselves out. You'll get the best of any player throwing insults around by showing them that it's not working. Players that prey on your emotions generally aren't that great of players. If they were they would stop talking the talk and start walking the walk. A great player enjoys playing the game not playing your emotions. Just remember that the next time someone is trying to get your goat.
