Friday Rant: Please turn your mic to mute!

If you are like me you play a lot of online multiplayer shooters, and there is nothing more annoying than having a teammate or squad mate with their mic on and all you hear is the echo of the tv. I don’t need to hear you shooting or the inevitable causing because you died to what you say was lag. My main multiplayer game that I play online is Battlefield 3 and I play a lot of it, I know that team work is one of the most important aspects of the game. This can be achieved though without the constant noise of tv feed back or the fact that I have Darth Vader in my squad who refuses to move the mic from his mouth.

If all of this wasn’t already enough to drive you crazy in comes the twelve year old whose ego can’t even fit on the internet. Now I am being yelled at by what sounds to be a chipmunk on helium, with every other word the F bomb and the use of other derogatory terms its clear this is a kid. The best part is you are never harassed by someone doing better than you, instead its the guy that you have killed five times and are now trying to get double kills on with the smoke grenade.

The point is mute your mic unless you really have something important to say, because quite frankly I’m losing brain cells from hearing you.
