To be honest... I don't come across gamers with voice chat anymore on console, used to be common during the Halo 3 era though.

Really? Interesting. I'm often getting hounded to join party chat in EDF games. By friends, and occasionally strangers. I even had to buy a new headset, because my PS4 wireless gold, while producing excellent sound, doesn't let my ears breath. I get uncomfortable, and eventually, dopey, as it slow cooks my brain inside my own skull. In general I try to avoid headsets, as I play better without them.

Even on PC it doesn't happen very often anymore. Might be my geographical location and who I get paired up with though.

I suppose there's a few factors at play. The EDF 4.1, and even more so, EDF 5 community seems quite eager to talk in my experience. My first encounter with at least 5 different people was accompanied by chat invite. I met one Aussie named Linux on there too. A nice guy, but very eccentric, and a rapid-fire chatter box, which when paired with his thick accent, made for some iffy speech recognition.

Are your friends, that you're presumably always going to be in party chat with anyway, gonna report you?

Joke/meme reporting is pretty common on xbox live.



Calling "Get fucked" a "sexual threat" is everything that's wrong with current society -.-



If you demand respect or gratitude for your volunteer work, you're doing volunteering wrong.

Even when I was a kid playing Rainbow Six and Rogue Spear online dang near two decades ago I had the decency to not spout that kind of shit at strangers... with friends and people I knew, sure, we'd all say crap like that at times because we all knew it wasn't serious, but you have to be a bit of a pathetic sad sack to go around making those kinds of threats to complete strangers over a video game lol

I've pretty much been muting public chat in games for a decade now; a small segment of the community always ruins it. We'll see how it goes, and I've no doubt there will be some bad examples of people unfairly punished, but I'm hardly about to cry on behalf of the kind of douchebags that engage in that sort of shit lol



Trash talk is a natural part of competition. Glad to see Ms thinks so too. Racial, sexual or religious discrimination isn't ok though.

I'd prefer if our speech wasn't limited all the same, even if it offends. I am hard to offend... Most of the time.
