rofl, I apparently have a user account on this forum, noice. I know nothing about the console gaming community, but I would never have the guts too (even when the person I'm playing in nightfire is afraid to go outside for fear of a 9cm round to the face) get up and either dry hump someone’s face or dry hump the controller (unlike some people). What I can tell you about is PC gaming, specifically Counter Strike (CS) PC gaming, and its kinda weird how it works. The higher up you go, from a first day of public server (pub), to a pubber with a 1.0 Kill/Death (K/D), to a small time ringer, to a team manager, the more intense the smack talking becomes. When your that pubber with a brand-spankin-new 1.00K/D ratio, if you die, you can easily jump into a conversation with someone about some other game, or anything else. I'm not saying it happens all the time, but it's not unheard of. When you and your four other buddies are in DE_Dust 2 (D2)(a CS map) in a Cyber athlete Amateur Leage: Open devision (CAL-O) match, if you even say hello to someone, they start smack talking. Then, when you get high enough in that league, all of a sudden, it stops. When you reach Cyber athlete Amateur League (CAL) Premier or Invite divisions, you have players from one team congratulating players from another team for beating the snot out of them on the other team's forums. (and yes, they do have forums: www.zex.com When you go to the Cyber athlete Professional League (CPL), it's like everyone’s best buddies. Kinda funny how it works.
