Non-talkative opponents?!

  • Quote

Post by tabben »

Some players like to chit-chat, others trash talk while some weirdos queue up to not drop a single message during the game :hmm:

Which type are you and do you like talkative opponents or not? Do you think it's rude to not respond to chit-chat during gamesh?

Background - I match with Passi in Quicksearch:

(Start of game)
Image
Non-talkative tabben: *no reply*

Imo typing at start of game sucksh because you need to micro crates, herds, explorers, treasure guardians etc. And I'm already doing these things sloppy when I've not played much in recent months :biggrin: On top of that pressing enter then typing isn't enough - on DE you need to manually click the chat box as well.. :smile:

(Mid-fortress age)

Non-talkative tabben: *no reply*
Passi: u r so talkative today

This question kind of demands a longer answer which I'm just not gonna bother with during the game lol. If i tried I'd prob just end up missing some unit batches, miss a raid or get caught out of poisiton and end up throwing my lead.

Game endsh, neither calls gg (i didn't since it's considered bm if you win and opponent didn't call gg)

So is it rude to go mute mode in QS or is it actually just a big brain habit adopted by honest players with integrity? Discuss below :flowers:

And plucked, or moth, plucked
From flowers or pollen froth
To wither on a young child’s
Display. Fetch
Me a ribbon, they, all dead

a true player would know how to trash talk without messing up his macro, least u can do is to spam 21 every time your opponent makes a mistake

I am a talkative player and just enjoy the occasional comment while gameplay is slow because thats the life of aoe.
Thats the social aspect - having a chat about the game even if its nothing important, even with a repöy of just taunt 1, that would at least be some form of interaction.
Remember playing on RE, getting to know people? Thats how it starts.

Not talking or at least replying, giving a sign of life imo is rude, even though it might not be in bad spirit

Some people simply enter a fugue state when the game begins and cannot do anything with their brain and their body other than tunnel vision and try to make that tunnel as large as the map, and the chat box isn’t really a part of the map. This is usually me.

And then when you play aiz you’re simultaneously playing a mini game called who can be wittier, and it’s very hard, that’s often why I quit at the start, and this avoids much embarrassment for me because I am simply outclassed in wit and skill and am in my fugue state.

I'm not much a talker, but that's because I am so absorbed with trying to micro (especially first minute of game, when most people are talking) I forget to respond to other people.

I wish I was able to have a conversation of GS (greatscythe11) he is the one player I would do anything to talk to :)

I almost never type anything in a game unless someone types to me first or it's someone I know pretty well, and in the second case I mostly only type within like the first 3 minutes.

I don't usually have a problem with not seeing messages, and I usually respond if other people type to me in game, but usually just stuff like "yea", "no", "idk" etc. Like I would've responded to passi's first comment with "haha" and his second comment with "idk". Personally I don't think it's rude to not respond though.

I have a guy in deathmatch who gives me a taunt 33 taunt 21 combo whenever he petards my factories, and sometimes it makes me mad as it's happening but most of the time I kind of like it.

i think we should include talking in the tournament rules and viewers need to score the wit after each game

I really miss the conversations between players in casted tournament games. We could enjoy them back in the day on legacy. Recs or spectated games should really include chats...!
