    What sort of chatter do you guys get when playing multiplayer? Are there a lot of gamers out there actually playing as a team? Quite often I can’t stand to keep my headset on when all I hear is F-bombs every other word, random chatter about their plans for the weekend, or some guy munching on Cheetos (not that I would be able to tell exactly what he was eating).

    Last night I was in a few rooms where almost everyone had a headset icon next to their name. NO ONE was talking. I didn’t hear one word come through the headset the whole time. I started to think my headset was broken but when I talked the icon would show on screen that it was working. Good chatter is really hit or miss I guess. It would have been nice to have some coordination in what our team was doing, especially when I was using my scientist for the first time.

    The few times I got Mic'ed players, no one spoke, so I guess they were in private parties or the controller was messed up, as sometimes it shows I have a mic plugged in, when I, in fact, don't.

    Its kinda rare to run into someone using a headset that isn't annoying.

    This. I also don't use it because everyone's voice comes through sounding like Stephen Hawking.

    None, because I use the party system on xbox live to talk to people I actually want to to talk to, and thus hear nothing of in-game chatter.

    I don't hear too much chatter. Usually someone swearing because they died, or whining about others not doing what they want. Been hearing people come in blasting nothing but static. I hate that. They get muted immediately.

    I guess I just need to find more friends with this game so I can make good use of communication!

    My gamertag is Shockwave1701 and I'd be down for setting up a team if anyone wants to add me to their list.

    My available playing time might be at a bit of a premium this weekend though.

    The one MP match I played I ran into a few douches that thought it was so funny to go on about how my voice sounds like a little boy. >=\ I'll usually remain silent through a match with my mic on since that usually happens, but I know you gotta communicate with your teammates for WFC.

    Im probably one of the kids that doesn't use their mic for telling others what to do. I never swear on it either, there's just no point. I get annoyed at mufflers. They just piss you off the whole time, unless there's a mute option.

    Luckily there aren't a lot of mic users on this game. The PS3 version doesn't have a mute option and I hate being stuck with annoying people with mics. I only ever use mine when playing with friends

    I keep my mic plugged in, but don't always use it. I usually use it if some one asks a question or to let people know what I'm up to if I'm in a position to help/need help.

    I've encountered people who seem to chat more than they actually play the game, and they're ALWAYS on my team. One time I was stuck with a group that seemed to be playing hide and seek with each other, as all I'd hear is "where are you?" and "hey buddy, hey buddy I found you!" Needless to say we lost horribly, with me being the only one doing the killing >:C

    The whole mic thing on PS3 is beyond lame. I can hear people making awful noises in most matches, and since I don't have a headset myself it completely drowns out the actions with horrible static-esque garbage.

    The fact that you can't mute individuals or disable chat entirely is HEINOUS.

    I've actually taken this up with Mike from the EU PSN Blog, he said he'd have a word with the relevant tech folk at Sony to see what can be done about this. A rare instance of a Sony employee admitting faliibility. Whether anything gets done about it, we'll see.

    In the meantime I suggest everyone spam the hell out of High Moon Studio's feedback system, demanding something be done about it.

    I hate the little kids cussing and roleplaying.....

    them and that one f**k-stick that thinks he's in a real war and cussing everyone out because we're losing

    and the above comments are for all MP games, not just TF: WFC
