In Starcraft II for instance, some guys even got warned for typing "glhf" because it is against the rules.
I think you also have to say "gg" (not sure about that though).
In the lower leagues however, I can tell you that Starcraft II players whine a lot more than aoe3 players, while there is no lag issue, the maps are perfectly symetrical and the balance is great.
Doesn't make it any less off-putting and immature. And clearly there's a reason for those rules because of how much it just taints the game for players and viewers alike.
Maybe we should consider instituting that...
I'm not saying it makes it less immature, but it's not "fair" to claim that people don't do that in the other games, people do, unless they're progamers.
I don't really think that it's possible to add such a rule, people admins aren't going to enforce it. If someone types "lag" in the middle of a game, what are you going to do ? Give the win to the opponent lol ? Or if a guy starts complaining after he lost the last game of a series, what can you do, admins surely can't ban him from the next tournaments.
Also part of the reason why the community thinks the top players are too salty is because the top players interact with the community in aoe3.
In Starcraft II, you won't ever see a top player post on a community forum to discuss strategy lol.
And the twitch chat flamers (who are usually not top players) are actually way more toxic than the top players.
