Don't talk smack if you can't back it up!

We all know that smack talking is part of the game. But honestly, don't talk smack if you can't back it up. Talking smack is an essential entertaining part of the game, but if you talk smack somebody know this, they will be coming at you twice as hard. So, I remember this one time where a guy told me "You suck, and it's gonna be my personal pleasure to make sure you suffer the rest of the game!" In turn I said nothing but made it my point in that game to track down that player to make him suffer.

 

 You see, I would've never gone after that player if he had not talked smack to me. I spent the entire game just pummeling that player that talked smack to me. The guy that talked that smack had no skills whatsoever! Essentially, I ruined his learning curve by going after him. He would've never had a player gunning for him the entire time he was online. If he hadn't talked smack. If you don't have the skills to back up what you say then don't say anything at all.

 

So if you want to learn how to play the game just play it. Once you become a professional then you can talk smack because then you can thwart any player that comes after you. If you are good enough you will be able to defend yourself when they do come after you. Once someone has their eye on you you will never escape them. Sometimes if you talk too much smack they will make your immediate game miserable as well as every game they see you playing on.



Don’t eat in my ear!!

I don't know if any of you experienced this one, but I have. It is very annoying and kind of disgusting. I understand how it gets done and why its gets done, but what I don't understand is why people can't be more conscious of it.

Please don't eat when playing against me, online. Actually, let me clarify this statement. Don't hook up to your headset that has a microphone on it and eat something while you are talking on it. Is that specific enough? I hope so, because a lot of people still don't get it. It's rude and it's gross so please stop doing it.

If you think that I want to hear you much on crackers while I am destroying you. You are sadly mistaken! What makes people think that they can be heard munching away on their favorite snack? I don't want to 1. Have you talk smack me and 2. Listen to you eat, while you are talking smack me. It is not fun at all and I don't want to hear it so stop doing it!

Don't get me wrong I like to munch on snacks too. I am a big Cheeze-It eater and as someone that likes this particular snack I am well aware of how loud they are to eat. They are yummy and a crunchy and I am addicted to them. But I know as I am playing a game that I have a headset with a microphone attached to it on that people will be able to hear me eat. So guess what? Knowing this tidbit I choose to either not eat my favorite snack or I don't put my headset on so people can hear me. It isn't that hard of a concept to figure out.

I remember one day, a long time ago I was playing one of my favorite first-person shooters. The person I was playing against had his headset on and was eating something while he was talking smack to me. Do you know how frustrating it is to ask someone to repeat the smack talk that you are receiving? This is very irritating! Not only did he FRAG me and made me feel like a total loser he made me listen to him as he digested his favorite food.

My advice is just put the food down. I know in today's day and age that it is difficult to consider the other person listening to you eat. We do not want to do it. I may be a little bit clearer about this. We do not want you to do it to us EVER! So do everyone a favor and put the bag of Chips Ahoy down and get down to playing the game. If you're hungry go eat, trust me you aren't missing anything.



If you do talk smack, don't complain when people do it back to you

When you do talk smack, just be prepared for the bombardment of people trying to FRAG you when you do. You might as well say"Hey come and get me and give it your best shot!"When you talk smack to other players. It is part of the game. So get used to it.

 

Talking smack is a simple concept. If you are good enough to antagonize someone to come after you then you should be prepared for people to try to kill you. When they do, do not whine about them trying to do so. This is very poor etiquette. Most experienced players enjoy smack talk and take it as an invite to come after you and talk plenty of smack back to you. So just remember talking smack whining when it's done to you is like inviting people over for a party and complaining when everyone actually shows up to party!

 

Seriously, don't do the crime, if you're not willing to do the time. That is a metaphor that describes this very clearly. Most experienced players consider it an invitation to attack you. If you don't want them to come after you don't ask them to come after you by talking smack. Your opponent most definitely will reciprocate. When you do and whine about being talked smack to, almost everyone who knows about in the game and will come after you twice as hard just to teach you a lesson and or get you off the field because you are annoying them by your incestuous whining.

 

Rule of thumb, if you aren't willing to play the game the way it was meant to be played, when people talk smack to you, don't talk smack back in a whinny way because your whining is annoying people are there to play the game, be entertained by playing the game, and are generally super competitive about it.

 


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.
