Can we add people who use lol as punctuation to the firing squad facing list?

... look at their bio. If it is empty, you'll be darn lucky if they are chatty.

Indeed, if they don't want to chat in game, they'll probably not fill in their bio at all.
Actually people who technically can't (small screen etc.) often say so. Others... I don't understand.

You could always ask before a game although that might cause performance anxiety ;D

I understand the addition of tablet play recently means some cant talk whilst playing, and I have asked some that dont chat ig but are in IRC if they can or not and no reply.
Just annoying for me.

I had a game against BooAhl in box recently, I lost 5-0 and had 8 Cas against me, most of the second half I had 2 players; but it was one of my most enjoyable games for a long time. Why? Because my "opponent" was gracious about the situation and in the chat area was anything but an opponent, we shared the experience.
As my record shows I really dont place value on it, win, lose or draw I play to past time and I appreciate those who make it enjoyable for me. So thank-you for your support here, the games we have played together and most importantly Christer and his Admin staff for overseeing the site and allowing me to escape reality for as much time as I do.
@highelfmage : I tink I have also helped some people become able to chat by pointing them toward the helpful Java setting thing.

My profile has an excellent example of a transcript between myself and (primarily) I... with a little bit of a salty lawman thrown in there :)
But it a great example of how you can still have fun even if the other coach is going to be a wet sock ;)
CHAT IT UP AND LET NO ONE STOP YOU!!!

Who wouldn't want to chat it up with you while playing Dal!
Don't let it get to you D.

I totally agree with you Dalfort. A bit of chatting can go a long way - - - and if you cant chat you should post it up.
Posted by pythrr on 2011-10-13 09:03:51
I like chatting up Dalfort.
Posted by Garion on 2011-10-13 13:52:44
totally agree, I hate it. The ones where people dont chat are the ones i tend to get most annoyed in if things arent going my way as well. if people are chatty its a lot easier just to laugh it all off.

How about writing a chat-robot in the new client?

Thanks ( after a while after own score)

I hate people that chat during games... Can you please stop being so social? This is the internet after all...
Posted by Dalfort on 2011-10-13 22:19:36
@PigStar-69 this made me laugh, because at least here it shows you are there :D
