Gamers don't always communicate strategy with their online team members.

Some of the most bizarre things can be heard in online gaming.


For the uninitiated, online gaming has become a multi-billion dollar industry where the number of enthusiastic players engaging in a virtual community with people from all walks of life has increased.

Voice chat apps like Discord, Overtone, or TeamSpeak3 have become increasingly prevalent due to its preferred method of communication over typing out messages on keyboards.

But the things players say in the heat of the moment can raise eyebrows.

NSFW comments from a sore loser or a disturbing argument heard in the background were some of the examples strangers shared when Redditor SON_MF_GOKU asked:

"Gamers of reddit, what was the most f'ked up thing you heard in a voice chat?"

Fridge On Fire

"While raiding on World of Warcraft our raid leader's fire alarm went off mid boss pull (open mic). He immediately starts yelling and throws his headset down without muting it. In the background all we hear is 'Ohhh f'k no.' and the sound of a door slamming. After a minute we hear weird cracking and groaning noises so I decide to phone him. Turns out his fridge had caught fire and his small flat was already half engulfed by the time the fire alarm had reacted. If he had not got out then then he probably wouldnt have been alive. Guy was literally standing outside of his flat in no shoes and he sadly lost everything including his clothes that day. A few years down the line and he is doing much better now though!"

Shyrecat

Sore Loser

"Just the other day in Warzone I heard the funniest death mic after I killed someone. It sounded like some male and he just said, in the most monotone voice, 'You're adopted. You should kill yourself.' Made me laugh because it was so unexpected compared to the normal rage mics and the delivery really sold it."

The Crunching

"I've heard so many f'ked up things over the years, but seeing as how there's a bunch of those, I have a funny moment I won't forget. This guy was crunching very loudly on the mic during a game of Halo. So I decided to grab a soda and chips and crunch back. Then more and more people started chiming in and no joke, half of the team never said a single word to each other. It was just constant crunching and loud sipping. Normally that sh*ts annoying, but half a lobby doing it without any other communication was pretty funny."

The Triumphant Exclamation

"Wasn't the most messed up but it was pretty funny, I was playing overwatch and as we got released to capture the point a dude yelled 'BIG D*CK ENERGY' and then silence ... And then 'SORRY, I guess everyone in my daughter's zoom class heard me' wherever he is now I hope he's doing well"

Auditory Abuse

"A man beating his children, then his wife when she tried to defend them. Police were called and he was arrested. I was on with his 14 yr old son."

The A**hole

"Oh man... MW2 lobby when I was in 8th grade. 2 Dudes getting into it. Guy 1 said 'I hope your mother dies.' Guy 2 is quiet for a second and says, more solemnly 'That's f'ked up... she got cancer and died about a year back.'

CarsenAF

Morbid Recollection

"Some guy I knew got drunk and started talking about how he watched his friend die when they were kids. He was crying telling all of us the story, everybody was silent."

Funknics

Demon Dog & Using Coke

"Overhearing a woman crying in the background because their dog was dead. About 5 minutes later the dog woke up and the guy was trying to convince others that the dog was possessed."

What 'Samantha' Wants

"Playing Black Ops 2 Circa 2013."

"A kid kept dying and he said 'Well Tickle my anus and call me Samantha' and that has stuck with me for about 8 years."

There's something seeing a person litter that drives me up the wall. I remember being a kid and being explicitly told to hold on to my trash and not just throw it in the street. As a kid, I distinctly remember being made fun of for not just throwing the bag of chips I'd just eaten or an empty soda bottle into the gutter.

I can't imagine doing that. Why?! We truly treat this planet as if we have somewhere else to go.

After Redditor pnrddt asked the online community, "What small action immediately makes you dislike a stranger?" people shared their observations.

When you're in the market for a slew of very specific facts that all fall under the same general theme, the internet really delivers.

Forget streamlined public health capabilities and revolutionized human communication, the true beauty of the internet is all the random, barely useful information you can find when a bunch odd people decide to assemble and swap info.

Working in a doctor's office means helping people when they're at their lowest. Sometimes, that leads to wonderful moments when the patient is thankful for all the advice and care you provided. Other times, it means taking something out of someone's bum.

Turns out, that second one happens a lot more than you might think.

I love movies. The cinema has long been a savior of mine and has given me some of my greatest inspirations. But being an avid film watcher has also made me quite the critic. I can always tell when a movie is worth the money to see in theaters or wait until it's on basic cable with commercials. The signs of mediocrity abound, and sometimes they aren't that difficult to spot.

Redditor u/fjv08kl wanted to know what is obvious about mediocre cinema by asking.... What are some subtle 'red flags' that tell you a movie is not worth watching?
