I kind of miss the trash talking before and after games, kinda added an extra dimension when you crushed people or vice versa.
Why does no one have a mic?
Apparently they are adding a MCC progression system which would be pretty cool. I feel like my games are meaningless right now. But once they add a progression system, with reach included it will spark a lot of activity.Darth5shot wrote:I guess 343 could give xp bonuses for people in a party... Which would increase the likelihood of solo players opening up their mic to look for willing participants. But that's all I can think of that will encourage mic usage.
This would require an xp progression system (glaring at you, MCC).
That was one of the main reasons why I avoided using headsets in open lobbies. A little friendly trash talking isn't too bad, but more often than not...I mostly got children who sound like they haven't hit puberty yet cussing more than a sailor because they think it's "cool" too cuss constantly. That or have some butthurt player scream about how he wanted me to die horribly or how he was going to rape my mom/sister because I managed to get a lucky headshot on him once in a SWAT match or he would make an easy target by constantly camping in super open/obvious areas.xXxFir3st0rmxXx wrote:I kind of miss the trash talking before and after games, kinda added an extra dimension when you crushed people or vice versa.
Yeah I was playing MCC last night and this teenager was raging really hard and I was crying laughing. not everyone has to have mics, but the good old days everyone did, so theres a lot of nostalgia playing socially.MEA Lone Wolf42 wrote:I encounter players with mics like 4 or 5 games ago and they were hilarious.
dang it’s been that long I ever post a comment on the forums.
I believe it's the other way around. The party chat is where it lags at and in game is faster. The problem is game chat works not even half the time. Sometimes when you think they don't have a mic you actually just can't hear them, and the chat delay gives you less time to react to a callout.wallace121215 wrote:Game chat goes through the game servers, party chat goes through ms live servers. Because I know this I’m aware that I’d be subject to confirmation bias but in my experience talking through game chat causes lag.
we are talking, we’re just in parties. I only ever switch to game chat if I feel a specific reason to talk to someone: like telling them where I’ll be going with a flag or something so I can toss it to them. If I’m by myself and I see someone going to the flag, I might switch on chat to say something like “I have tunnels clear if you grab the flag.”
