i started to use a mic while playing vidya for the first time ever. usually the encounters are good or i just have people calling my voice retarded but i dont know how to deal with genuine irrational hostility.


I have been trying to do this for a while with no luck, as soon as I attach my mic to my headphones my mind just gets completely blank and I feel uncomfortable, I start to play poorly because I can't stop thinking about the mic and what to say


Nice, very cool.


Your voice is retarded.

People on the internet are not your friends. They don't care about you. Accept it or don't use a mic.


no the people mad at me arent mad because of my voice, they get mad when i play the game right. eg: theyre camping in spawn with a tank doing nothing so i drive it to point and they start screaming at me and calling for mods


I fell you, I am an achivement hunter and I hate those multiplayer or co-op achivement the most simply because it forces me to communicate using mic


I hate them because I often play a game several years after launch so almost no one is even playing online anymore.


I'm something like that too.

What game is that? Sounds like Battlefield 1.


hell let loose

Kill them with kindness OP
Their own anger will break them before it will break you, and you will have an advantage over them in all games where you meet these people. They're probably angry because they got their ass kicked and don't have the good sense to take a break, so do everything in your power to make them angrier without becoming angry or irrational yourself.


What are you even supposed to say on mic? It seems to me that 90% of the time anything said on mic is completely pointless, at least in the games that I play. I've been trying to use a mic and this is just the conclusion I've come to, I don't use a mic because I have nothing to say, if I was in person with the people I'm playing with I wouldn't have anything to say either. Mics are just purely for social leverage/gain, like if you have a mic you can get someone kicked out of a game/group way easier because normalfags trust these social niggers more.


crabs and succubi buy a mic so they can have e-sex on discord but some devs are aware of the normans and they added chat, pings and pre-recorded in game voice lines :) that way wizards won't have to talk to them


um, seems insanely obvious that you could use it to cooperate and organise attacks in team-based games, but im sure you know that and you're discounting that for some unstated reason


Like >>56776 said you usually have stuff like pings and pre-recorded voice lines in most games these days, and it's worth noting both of these things cut through any sort of language barrier as well. Unless you are on some sort of pro-gaming esports team or trying to coach some noob/retard I don't see why you would ever need a microphone


i must be out of the loop since i havent played much online games at all since about 2010. e.g. halo 3 had no way to communicate other than voice.

i dont believe you that you can communicate well enough with voice lines and placing markers, especially while using all your fingers to competitively play the game

I tried playing the latest Halo Infinite a little. When i did ranked, i had people joining with microphone and shaming other players for not having them. im sensitive to that. i assume it would get worse at higher ranks. The non-ranked gametypes were terrible but maybe thats just a halo problem


Turn off other's microphones


All of that sounds so freaking obnoxious. I think I'll stick to single-player games.


use a voice changer or an eq to remove nasal or ugly frequencies

>find a group of people I get along with
>decide to stop being a mic-less fag
>reassure myself with "nobody gives a shit what you sound like"
>play for a while, find out I was right
>end up playing games with one of them every day for a year or two
>one day she flips out and goes on a rant about hating the sound of my voice
>it's been 5 years and I've never used a mic since
I've since found a new group to hang out in, and as the only nomicer I've become a legend. Some think I might be a celebrity whose voice would be recognized. Others think I'm a cat that plays video games. Some claim I've used voice chat with them when nobody else was around and only they know what I really sound like. It's fun. I want to join their D&D but there's no way that would work out without a mic and I don't want to end the fun or go through the pain of driving someone insane again.


Silence is golden.
