I usually mute people like this but no one was even responding to him, he was literally having a convo with himself non stop

The guy never stopped talking, ever. I didn't mute him because I wanted to see how long he would go on talking to himself and he persisted for 5 games straight till I made him rage quit which I heard as well

Thanks for making me realize my mistake, Anon
This is pretty much me. The only time I'll talk is maybe once or twice a night to inform someone they're making a bad decision.
The last thing I need to do when there's 4 faggots talking over one another is to add a 5th faggot to it.
>Used to be a raid leader in WoW
>People would generally shut up when I was talking about what to do and what strats to use.
>Anytime out of the raid I would just type and never speak.
I don't know why, I'd socialize during the raid when we had downtime or were just clearing trash but apart from that I could never bring myself to talk outside of a raid.
> those absolute faggots from obviously from /b/ or /v/ who spout memes and act like tumblr/SJWs ironically
If you faggots are reading this stop it.
I don't usually use all chat because my mates and I usually have a skype call. When I do though, I act like an autistic faggot with an obvious exaggerated tone and scream orders at other team members. Either that or defend the little kids who get bullied, for the fuck of it.

I guess I'm a reverse neet? I prefer talking in real life over talking on the phone or over skype and prefer talking to people I actually know than online friends.
>Don't like speaking in English since it's not my first language
I once had some dude make fun of me because I mispronounced one word. Never talking on the mic with strangers again.
I like to go into jailbreak servers and start spouting politics when all the guards are trying to find me. It's fucking hilarious.

Or just use talk to talk and solve all the problems, no forgetting to press it, no clipping, no ruining your mouse movement by squeezing it, and you can use the side buttons for actual funcionality.
Or is that too hard for /v/?

>mfw most people like what I do and we can all get a good laugh out of an otherwise boring situation
I'm mostly just your average guy. I'm not a shyfag though, so you can expect me to get vocal if the situation calls for it.
I mostly stay quiet, though. Just because there's not much worth saying if the people in the server aren't talking or are annoying, which is most of the time.
I have a razer mouse, mouse3 doesn't work half the time. And it means taking my finger off shoot.
Still haven't heard a good reason why push to talk is better than talk to talk
Crouching jumping and getting hit sends you flying farther. If you aren't retarded and want control over your movement then you need normal jump bound instead of being forced to crouch jump.
I still keep a crutch jump bound on shift.
Just make sure not to stop playing to type long messages. Every bit of XP and gold counts.

This is why I hate Mumble/Vent/TS. The second you mute these people they will say something to you specifically and you will not hear it, and then when they realize they are muted, drama begins.
>Still haven't heard a good reason why push to talk is better than talk to talk
>The game's audio is ducked for the entire team the whole time that you're playing
>The team disables audio ducking. When you talk, nobody can hear you over the raised audio.
There might not a good reason to you, but it's a great reason to everyone else.
>Shifting your finger over a couple of centimeters is awkward

Does anyone here actually play games?
After playing League for 4 years and Dota for about 3 before that, I realize that I actually fucking hate ASSFAGGOTS unless I'm playing with a full group of 5 friends
Ahri is still muh waifu tho
>You plus 5 friends
>That makes 6, but there is a max of 5 players
You know what I meant you smug fuck
I'm a heterosexual male IRL who plays exclusively female characters in online vidya. No mic for me (I tried voice changer once and people didn't buy it.)
My favorite thing to do is building up relationships with people, typically fat virgins who really want to cyber, and then right before it happens I cut them off and cease all contact. It's hilarious because they never shake the feeling that they've lost someone important to them.
>kill a guy and he starts calling u a faggot

I literally want to cry sometimes I miss Halo 3 in it's prime so bad. Absolutely needs a PC port.
>mfw my friend does that just so the super rare times he might say one word everyone makes a big deal about it
This is probably the first time I use my mic in months
>that guy who only uses his mic to say things in a funny voice
>that guy who only uses his mic to say the same catch phrase
>that guy who only uses his mic to spew memes
I'm that guy that is bro tier as long as you legitimately try and don't flame. As soon as you start being rude, especially if you're playing like shit, you have awakened the dragon.
I said "good" reason. I'm not the type to respond back to commands. I just do what I'm told if I agree it's a fine plan. Other than that, I don't want to talk to anyone online.
>that guy who tries to capitalize on people's jokes and bombs
fuck you i love this
i always spam the shit out of them with porn
>Start playing porn with screaming bee
>some random ruskie starts yelling at me with the echo of orgasms in the background
I don't even talk in real life, unless it's a generic response like yes or no. And even a simple answer like that comes out sounding meek and pathetic. I find it's much less stressful to just ignore people who are talking to me. It's better that people think of me as that weird motherfucker who doesn't talk. I prefer it over spilling spaghetti all over the place. Thank god for the internet. If I didn't have the the comfy, anonymous internet, I would have killed myself from loneliness a long time ago. I envy you normies.
what's worse is:
>opponent has mic on
>blasts music through his mic

>implying you dont just immediately die
Oh, I'm sorry, I'm not a retarded skin-head gun toting, war-mongering retarded worthless Americans like you.
I don't care what any of you say i'll talk how I want to talk
You realize how futile it is trying to walk on ice with people like /v/ anons every time I play trying not to trigger your super sensitive anal elitism with how I talk or act
Its fucking impossible you guys can't be pleased you get bitchy and moody about everything just shut up and let me do my thing when I play if you don't like it get the fuck out of my game
Owned by the navy, but still a different branch, used in occupations and beach assaults. They have some different armor/air/small arms/SF than the Army, but im not going to spoon feed you.
>confirmed for being the gay faggot who was forgotten about because too beta to talk on mic
no but his boyfriend tried to suck all of our dicks, he was the only one stupid enough to go into a relationship with a huge gay whore
cheer up anon.
you're control of your attitude and how you react towards people.
forget what other people think of you.
the key to being yourself is not giving a fuck about what people think of you.
It depends in what I'm playing on. If it's a normal game by myself, not really, but with friends? Yeah. But, if it's Halo 3, you bet I'll be talking to people, by myself or not. I used to just trash talk people for the fun of it, but now I just try to be over polite in order to annoy people who aggressively attack me or someone else for no reason, saying things like, "Hey, that's not nice to say", or, "Hey now, you should apologize for saying that. Those words can be hurtful young man". Usually they don't know how to respond to it other than "shut the fuck up faggot ", which makes me laugh. Sometimes they actually apologize though.
If I'm playing on a PC however, I like to type shit all the fucking time, since I don't have a mic. If there's a conversation going on via voice chat or text chat, I usually add dumb shit to the conversation, or just add up the conversation. Sometimes though, I just want to play so I don't talk at all.
How can I be friendly? I try to be but my humor is dry and sarcastic and friends think I'm making fun of them when I'm really just joking around
This is an interesting question.
If I'm playing on my xbox I'm usually drunk and shit talking.
My online vidya interactions really started like this
>Get halo PC at age 13ish
>Playing on a clans server
>curious, visit website
>try to join clan
(Shadow Clan. Would be amazed if anyone remembered it. It was halo PC/CS1.6/CSS/Unreal Tournament/AVP clan)
>Eventually get in
>kind of quiet
>eventually lighten up and end up having a lot of great times with people I don't even know
I'm usually a pretty nice guy online nowadays.
I played extensively on a pyro dodgeball server for a good while, haven't been on in a few months though. We had a pretty good community of regulars that would play. I always used a mic and I would just say whatever I wanted for the most part.
Anyways, I was ranked 1 on the server so I was kind of "the guy." I need to hop on the server again sometime soon.
>mfw whenever I log onto steam the regulars flood me with messages
I honestly feel kind of bad for not being on in such a long time, I just can't bring myself to actually get on TF2 again. I have no interest.
>Have small amount of close-knit friends that were all I needed
>End up moving away from them and growing distant with most of them
>No longer know how to make friends
Life is suffering
Just tell them you're not making fun of them and that you're kidding. If you don't, they'll keep thinking you are making fun of them. You have to actually tell them what you think of them and be real for a moment and say, "You know I'm just joking, right?"
>friend gets drunk and falls over at party
>help her up
>hang around in case more shit happens
>she starts holding my hand
>pop a boner
>only really chat with friends that I made ages ago in a clan when I used the 360
>hardly ever talk to them, but usually there
>eventually stopped talking to them
>almost never talk to anyone anymore outside of 2 guys that never give much of a conversation and a few guys off of /v/ which never lasts long
Well, alcohol IS a depressant...
I can't drink without weed nowadays.
Because I get exactly like you do, depressed.
Seriously the most comfy nights of vidya have consisted of me drinking and smoking.
I'm out of bud and I'm drinking right now though.
So me sad.
>that one guy that wants to talk to you over the internet
>only use mic on BF4
>only use it when friends are in the game
>when they leave I turn off the mic
I'm pretty much the same way but only around people. I usually have nothing but good vibes when I"m alone and drinking+smoking.
I think you just worry too much anon. Being able to take yourself out of your own mind is a skill and you should practice it. I'm a strong believer in the idea that our thoughts and feelings have an affect on the world around us. If you think positive and feel positive you're going to get it back man.
It sounds strange but it works.
oh god I love that guy.
>be a regular on TF2 server
>every once in a while THAT guy joins
>either pretends to be black or a kid
>his spray is always hardcore gay porn
>sprays it and then blames other people
>constantly talking about "sexy ass children"
He was really good at the game too, which made it even better.
I just hate the sound of my nerdy, monotone, robot voice.
a variation of this happened to us back in the day, during a comp. one of our old mates had switched schools JUST recently, and he joined the other schools bball team, so when we versed for the finals, right at the start out of pure habit one of our players tossed it to him. resulting 15 seconds of pure confusion as both teams broke away opposite directions, thinking they still had the ball
its pretty funny to see two teams try to keep it serious and continue the play when EVERYONES laughing
well since this kind of turned into a "that guy" thread I think this is relevant.

I'm that guy
By mistake I discovered I sound like an actual old man while on a TTT server, it would get somewhat awkward whenever I started talking. When I was Traitor I would kill people then revive them, they would never know what to do.
>the guy who gets into arguments so constantly stops playing to type, getting him and his team BTFO in the process
just let it go
The guy whos great at whatever vidya I pick up and only really want to speak words with people who are at my level. Anyone who is obviously lower then me is given 1-2 word reponses, while I'll have full on conversations about anime and other things with people who are actually good.
Only that I'm not a guy, which is the reason why I don't talk
>HURR STFU GURRL GAMER BITCH XDD
>HURFDURF GURRLS CANT PLAY VIDYER
Fuck you you fucking faggots I just want to play vidya you cunts.
The problem is that some people sometimes even completely forget about the fucking game only because they heard a high voice. Like, everything you say or do is used to mock you in any kind.
Why are people such faggots? Why can't they just play vidya with random stangers and not sperg out when someone is not like they think they should be? That's fucking childish.
>yo brah take it easy just smoek sum pot lol
I've never got used to it and most people I've played with have just used skype which only got PTT recently. I use the gain setting of whatever it is in TS3/OBS if I'm streaming.
Seriously though we had some women regulars in our tf2 server a while back, you just have to ban people if they're being shitty. If it's a game with matchmaking play with friends I guess.
But since you're on /v/ I'm going to assume you don't know how to not reply, so I'm sure you instigate things by taking their lame b8. In which case, you are just as much to blame. And if you're not replying, you're not talking, and if you're not talking, then how the fuck could they make fun of your voice in the first place.
Correction: That guy who thinks he's carrying the fucking team and thinks everyone should support him for any cost while he is actually worse than his entire team and sperges out whenever his team mates don't do what he wanted them to do, even though it's fucking retarded.
I like to play the get banned game.
telling 8 year olds that f10 helps, teamkilling, playing gay porn noises into the mike, using porn sprays then killing people looking at it, throwing powerful weapons to enemies, etc
>tfw socially anxious as fuck
>tfw no friends because of it
I can't talk to people and it sucks
if someone messages me on steam all I can think about is how what I'm gonna say is gonna fuck something up and ruin the conversation so I end up not saying anything and they still delete me
people who don't call and shit in CS piss me off so much
how do you get to fucking LEM without calling, god dammit
or you get a group of 2 who are in mumble or something just calling to each other and typing every few minutes
In any games without friends or such : silent, always silent, high skilled

I have a monotone voice, who has a west coast accent so I hardly talk. I don't know people tell me that I have a alright voice, but I still don't talk. Plus I usually play single player games so I just forget to talk in multiplayer games.
I'm not sure where I expected this to go.
I use to have that same problem with R's. I'm still not all the way there yet but you can vastly improve on it with practice, perseverance, and believing in yourself. Trust me anon I love you.
This was my constant fear and the reason I never talked when I had a mic.
>Join TF2 game

>Tell him to shut the fuck up

It was fun.

I'm completely refuse to take drugs or intoxicate myself in any way. I don't get the appeal, but I don't mind other people drinking. Drugs are something I'm completely not okay with because my parents were both heroin and cocaine addicts.
I've still had no trouble with girls. It's about having a likable personality. You god damn fucking faggot.
are you fucking retarded?
being opposed to drugs because you had to put up with being raised by drug addicts is the same as not driving because your parents died on a bus in the slightest.
all drugs are not the same, not drinking alcohol because of what heroin did to your jakey parents is retarded. if you said you refused to take any opiates I would understand but not refusing to take a totaly unrelated drug
