    I gave up on expecting anyone to have a mic in games several years ago because most people are locked in parties. One of the most annoying experiences is being invited to a party by a squad member only to discover that you and him are the only ones playing BF5 while the rest of the group is playing Goat Simulator or some other crap.

    jeesus are you lonely? it's a game console, not a contract to be your talking buddy if I join a round with you. pay attention and stop running off on your own and you'll find more rando's will back you up

    Every time I give mics another chance the first person I hear has a baby screaming in the background while they breath loudly and get yelled at by their wife. Nope, not enabling VOIP in a game ever again.

    Unless playing with friends, first thing I do is mute everyone with mics. Ninety percent of time you are going to get either loud music, dog barking, kid crying, wife(girlfriend) talking to them or them raging at you because he died.
    This.
    Also in non American servers you have people who keeps talking in their native language

    I have better things to do than voluntarily listen to trolls.

    Mics went to the wayside this generation for gaming. Last gen mics were always used.

    Game has no open mic. Holding a button to talk is pretty annoying.

    Push to talk FTW. I cant stand when people in say Discord for example have open mic. That would suck playing with everyone with open mic on.

    I notice that more often than not (when i play with randoms) people dont use their mics. Sometimes i get lucky and encounter people who do use mics and we team work. On PC i mean.
    Not gonna lie though, sometimes i dont feel like talking or go a bit shy. And sometimes if there's 2-3 of us in Discord we dont always talk to the random or two in in game chat, we're just talking in Discord. But i do always try to warn my team mates of danger like where i was shot from or where the enemy was, how many i saw, if there's a tank, if its safe to revive or request ammo or a revive or a med pack, some times i will ask whats the plan or suggest that people spawn on me, etc.

    I do notice though that sometimes using a mic can make people leave the squad. Not everyone likes team work. I can understand though if someone is being too bossy or taking the game too seriously or being really critical if you die or make a mistake or dont revive even when they're out in the open and not safe to do so and etc.

    But it really dose (more often than not) help you survive and do better when you all communicate.

    I have a few people on my friends list that i was playing drunk with and i was sent a friend request because we team worked all night but then usually i never play with them again ^^;

    I use my microwave oven whilst gaming all the time. Gotta have snacks to win. Or in some other players' minds, gotta have snacks and not mute the mic so others can listen to me munch muh mnacks.

    Same; turned off mic & voip, mostly 'cause of screaming players. Only use a mic when I'm on TS with friends.

    I keep my VOIP off generally because whenever I've had it on (or rather, when I've had the glitch where the option is off but you have to flip the switch to zctually mute it) there'll just be some guy breathing really heavily, which is pretty off putting, or some 12 year old who thinks this is CoD and is screaming 'hacker! Aimbotter! whenever he dies (tends to be the ones who's at the bottom of the leaderboard with about 2 kills and 17 deaths).
    Actually I've had much better games with random squads who weren't using the game's VOIP - I was in a squad with two guys from a clan and another random one time on Conquest, and we were top squad, all had very few deaths because we stuck as a squad, revived when possible, and we're kind of rotating through the map opposite our team.

    I only seem to encounter other adults. Maybe that's just a PC thing though? I guess typing is better than nothing at all. At the end of the day you can do what you want.
