    In-game taunts are a major turn-off for me. Yes, enough to make me quit playing the game.

    I had to go through this with Tribes2. Fortunately, the engine in T2 allowed some modders to make taunt blockers.

    I have to say there is a good deal of taunting in my MP games, but no butt-hurting. Perhaps a more careful choice of words might be advisable.

    Unreal was pretty good.

    There were a couple of games that were programmed with some decent insults for the player when they lost or did something silly. Always humorous.

    Though it is somewhat scarier when the comp tells you to stfu you stupid n00b.

    As long as it doesn't become personal, taunting and trash talking is one of the enjoyable aspects of MP games. Trash talking or gloating to an AI, is not quite as satisfying.

    Sounds to me like your friend should play the Sims or something similar.

    Rockets are ok. We usually play shotguns and warthogs on Blood Gulch or shotguns and ghosts on Sidewinder. As long as sniper's are off it's all good (though I wish there was a way to take away sniper rifles and keep the pistol).

    I accept my humiliation in defeat and am more than willing to help a less skilled player. I don't think trash talking has anything to do with being a good sport. Go back to Mario Sunshine.
    Ha, seems I don't even need to post new stuff since I can just agree with you . Right on!

    Why would you play anything but rockets? That is a good one, though. I also like to play Battle Creek and Rat Race with rockets, too. Don't forget unlimited grenades!

    There is such thing as being a good sport.

    Play Rockets on the Prisoner Map.

    Yes, obviously.

    EDIT: If that's what you want to call competitive, anyways. You don't have to act like an ass to "play competitively". There is such thing as being a good sport.

    Trash talking is fine in competitive games.

    I personally dont trash talk. I actually do the reverse and trash talk to myself about how crappy my performance was and how gay that execution happened to luckily hit the opponent etc.. while im flawlessly defeating my opponent. My friend is the opposite, he trash talks you to death, even if he just got humiliated, he will find a way to trash talk to you and find a way to lower yuour ego.

    Either way, one should have freedom to do whatever it is they want to do when playing the game. If it bothers you, maybe you suck or you shouldnt be playing with that individual that bothers you.

    half of the fun in MP games is mind ****ing. Banning trash talk takes alot away from mind games.

    PS more ppl get annoyed by me than my friend.
