    I want to ask everyone to please have their mic's on during user games. I'm not asking users to talk to each other, but please have it on in case an issue comes up, the two users can work something out. Mic's are more effective than pausing the game to type a message out.

    Also, for me, I like talking to the other player I'm playing. It helps the league out as well b/c users get to know each other and can verbally hold one another accountable for their actions.

    Please respond and let me know you've read this.

    Read. And I never really know whether I should use it or not. I'd like to talk during a game, but I usually don't because I don't really know the "headset protocol" since I just recently got one.

    I usually have mine on and try to talk alittle before kick-off and if anyone doesn't want to talk during user games, just let the other user know. No big deal. Having a mic enables both users to "be on the same page" during a game.

    got it. my mic is a little screwy (not a real xbox headset just a set of earbuds w/a mic and an adapter to 2.5mm) but it seemed to mostly work during the offseason.

    Completely agree with having it on at all times during game to rectify any questionable plays or strategy. Personally my attitude changes game to game sometimes. If I'm really focused I won't talk to much b/c it distracts me some what. But EVERYONE should definitely have their mic on during games. Good post Clay.

    Yea i'm all for using the mic's in the game I like to communicate with my opponent it helps to keep us on the same page. Plus I have a way to tell them if I have to pause the game to drop a deuce or something lol.

    Just a reminder to all members, have your mics on during user vs user games. You do not have to talk to each other, but it helps resolve potential issues.

    Also, I've seen a few instances where coaches are using the "Run Commit" function in the game. This is not allowed in Overdrive.

    I agree. I thought I replied to this earlier, I guess I accidentally didn't post it. I am okay with having my mic on at all times, sometimes I don't want to talk though. I play worse sometimes if I talk while I play.
