It just get tiring in those public lobbies. And people complain that there is no teamwork in a game because of party chat, but it is not like there was any teamwork before party chat came along. It is cause the players who blast music through the microphone
(and its usually horrible, I get it you are the metalest dude in the world no need to force that on everyone), and the swearing. I am no saint but it seems people swear just to swear. Good trash talk is great but online it is not even clever.
That is why the lobbies are silent, that is why there is no strategizing. It is the gaming community as a whole, not party chat. I am sure that is what led to party chat being demanded. I blame the gaming community and party chat is a welcome relief.
I just found it hard to actually get some friendly banter going. I used to love some friendly trash talking, but now its not friendly trash talk, it's just trash talk. People either seem to be hyper competitive or of the belief that having your real name
hidden entitles you to insult everyone else.
On that note, you're all ugly and your Mummies dress you funny :D
