    Having to listen to some prepubescent brat count their kills and try and trash talk gets pretty tiring after about 5 minutes, let alone an entire match. What the fuck were they thinking not including a mute option (unless I somehow missed it)?

    Which platform? On 360 you can view a players profile and mute them from there.
    I assume you can do the same with PS3 too?

    Forget little kids. It's much more sad to listen to grown men/young adults throwing around racial slurs and relating getting a kill to sexually explicit matters. I'm not trying to play a "goody two shoes" here but that's not what I want to regularly hear when I'm playing a video game.

    Exactly, I was called the "Douche of Cybertron" because he said I was stealing his kills.

    That's not nearly as bad as what I hear. It's not even used against a teammate, it's how they casually speak when they simply get a kill. Disgusting.

    Oh it gets far more epic than that. I don't encounter this much foul language when I use Bison in Super Street Fighter IV.

    WHERE YO' PURPLE AT!!

    Mute player is part of any XBL game through the player's gamercard.

    As an added bonus, you can also set you privacy settings to block all voice chat from people not on your friend list.

    Using these features eliminates 100% of the above problems.

    I was told that I needed to wrap my timing chain around my crankshat and ram it up my exhaust port. I wasn't sure if I should be insulted or thank the guy. I think insults are ok if they are Transfomers themed. Also I played with a dude called "Jazzinmypants" I lol'd

    I hate the kids and the swear boxes...

    Flamers are nasty... the ones who win matches but still want to cause shit. Like "You guys suck haha" or something to that.... I can understand bad losers but bad winners are worse.

    Also the ones I find get on my nerve are the ones I call 'facepalmers' who seem to bitch about obvious things. I was playing Count Down to Extinction and a player said "Oh man I have to carry the bomb all the way over there? that's gay" ....and that's why I call them facepalmers :lol 


    With that said, PS3 you can 'block' players but it's like blocking someone on MSN, unless you have them on your friends list it's rather annoying to turn off later if you desire to.

    I played online for the first time last night, didn't know the map and was up against people who were level 10, and I got some kid sending me a message via text about how bad I was doing. Kinda lame, but you do sort of have to admire the dedication on some level.

    I'm hoping to find some more casual gamers who don't really care that much about kills and such.

    Yeah....Luckily I haven't encountered it that much, but there have been a few times were you have people, just being irritating and talking a bunch of nonsense. What's worse is that they put the friggin headset on, but don't use it to help out during the match. Gimme a break.
