i recently got pretty good in team ranked; so that i am in the top 0.5% of all player; and before that i rarely encountered smack talk or complains. Sure some players are trash talking, but really not a lot.
However since the matchmaking is sometimes good to me; and I play with top players(in team rank mind you); i saw some of them seem to play typing simulator rather than age of empires.
I dont care if they type because of me or a teammate, but unless they got speech to text in AoE, they have to use some of their APM for typing. I personally mute those people, and just react with an 11 or 14, but it would be neat if we can have a taunt; something like;" I see you fight with words not with units"
I would also take it as DLC, i understand that such changes are not for free, so i am willing to support you guys.
Seriously some people get really toxic in ranked, even when they don’t say something offensive, its not helping either.
