So I was playing COD:MW2 earlier, I'm not to bad at it, but I'm not that good either. Regardless I keep playing because I'm trying to hit prestige for the first time and I get a game where the enemy team does nothing but camp with snipers, still I carried on to get experience even though we lost.
Then after the game I get a message from someone off the other team saying I was shit at COD because I was Welsh and I was an orphan.

After reading this I was like wut? Me being Welsh now inhibits my ability to play games does it? After a few messages sent between us I generally just make an idiot of the kid and all he has to say to it is "yeah bt ur welsh"
I just filed a complaint and blocked communications after this because of how stupidly funny it was.

I find it pathetically funny that I only have to speak in gamechat sometimes for people to start screaming at me because I'm Welsh.
But anyway, point of the topic, how many people get insulted because of the country their from?

It happens. There's a lot of douche bags on Xbox Live. Just block communications and move on.

That's nothing. I had some guy following me around for about a month just trying to annoy me just because I was Welsh. He even kept creating different accounts just to send me messages after I blocked him.

Thats going way past an annoying message or 2, thats flat out harassment and Microsoft does suspend/ban those people. I truly hope you reported him.

Wow, I knew people on XBL could be idiots but that just pushes it, some people are beyond weird online though I guess.
Though I at least prefer being insulted for being Welsh, some American kid kept calling me an Irish potato picker before because one of my friends betrayed him on Halo. Then another time two kids who sounded like Cletus from The Simpsons kept messaging me and joining my games to ask a crapload of stupid questions like if I liked tea and crumpets and if I listened to The Beatles because I live in Britain -_-

And yeah, anytime I get a message from someone who acts like a prat I always file complaint and block in the end like I said in my first post xD

It has happened to everybody numerous times granted they had their Xbox for more than a hour.

I have had the small little stuff like "shut up you nerd."

I have had the medium stuff like "you can't talk b/c you are a stupid Jew who killed Jesus."

I have had the big stuff which is just plain out weird and stalkerish. I was once friends with this guy and cousin (they seemed normal), but after a while I saw that the guy was crazy (his cousin was just a little 12 year old who followed his older cousin). After playing for 3 months and dealing with his craziness, I went on a week vacation and when I got back he had removed me from his friends list then sent me a message yelling at me saying that I removed him and so on. After that I just cut all ties and went about my gaming business. Over right? WRONG, the little cousin had all his friends file a complaint and bad player review on me. They both sent numerous messages, which I never responded to, filed complaints, submitted a payer review, and then I block communications. Not responding was the worst thing I can do to them, these are the kind that get their jollies from getting a reaction from people. So they made new accounts (at least 10) over the time sending messages and threats. I did the same thing not respond, file complaint, submit player review, and block communications on them all. It stopped for a few months, then 1 year after we stopped playing and when this all started I get more messages from them. I mean you have got to be fucking some sort of lunatic if after a year you still are sending messages. I have not gotten a message since the ''year anniversary'' one which happened in March.

Moral of the story, most people are usually harmless and just a bunch of pussies that talk shit b/c they can get away with it.

Personally, I have never been insulted by anyone on Live. However, it does not mean that I don't hear it going towards other people more than I care to hear it. The best thing to do is just report those clowns and file a complaint.

thats no good, if he somehow, loses, then the other guy will be bothering a LOT more.

it happens to me all the time, im from mexico and i got messages of people saying that all mexicans should die, or stop crossing the border, and things like that.
(Im a real mexican living in mexico, so dont bash saying i crossed the border or something, i do hate those mexicans, they give us all bad reputation)

I find if people are sad enough to first: get angry over a video game and second: send me a message, then they are some sorry strange little person unworthy of a response. I just block and file complaint... usually pisses them off more when they don't receive a message back.

I've never been constantly harassed/followed by anyone though that takes the cake...

Yeah true. You should not care about what people say about mexicans. its just stupid stereo type, you should not hate those mexicans.! and don't call them "mexican" just call them people beacuse that what they are, if you say those type of mexican them thats being a hypocrite.

If you get on any massive multiplayer game like Halo, Gears, Call of Duty, Battlefield, etc you'll find the same people every time. Block, avoid, file complaint, do what you gotta do but you'll always find people out there that are douche bags.

You just have to grow a thicker skin sometimes and realize it's Xbox Live, who gives a sheet?

I really don't have this problem since I'm white and have an American sounding voice. Really the only reason people go out of their way to talk bad on me is when I pwn them in Halo or CoD. I feel sorry for people who have foreign (to me) accents as most people who hate are punk 10 year old americans. My advice is to play it off like you are impersonating the accent. I bet you could have a lot of fun with that :)

I dread to think what people say about me online as I truly am shit at FPS games. I wouldn't know what they are saying though as I don't wear a mike and make sure that the sound is low enough that I cannot hear them.

Im from Portugal and i hear things like...Shut up mexican....Go back to the fields Pablo...lol

Or that my Internet sucks, just because the mtachmaking in the game had americans in a portuguese lobby.

Most of the times i only laugh at such ignorance,

Just some idiot. The only people who deserve a U suck message are the people who go 0-20+ COD is very very easy to get a kill just chuck one nade and boom 1 kill. I would send a message back like your just jealous of my pure raw skill just to piss them off more :-P

What about all the Pussy's and Dicks though.....

I tend not to play online as I only have 1 friend with XBL and you really need a good group to make games fun. I had a child singing badly at me of RF:G, and another shouting 'I need a shit' all the way through the shortest song in GH:Metallica then leaving just before the end.

So - It happens, live with it because its never going away. You will get that kinda thing throughout your life as people have big mouths when they cannot get hurt.

And it was most likely a under 12 year old as around 75% of MW2's gaming population is around 12 and under.

I have been insulted for being Canadian. I don't know why. Just mute, file complaint, block comm, bad review done. People are huge dicks on the internet, Live, PSN etc. Best thing is to ignore them and move on.

I just don't get that people insult others because of their heritage. I'm getting called a Nazi or Hitler, just because I'm from Austria. Sometimes people yell at us "We won the war.", just because they are american or british, and I'm not.

I have also been called an "American rapist". Credit goes to a little british boy. Weird people on XBL...

Where do they come up with these things? I mean really. well, my bro and his friend ran into some little kids that were getting pissed cause they were failing and insulting my bro. He knew they weren't legit 9th prestige after he called them boosters with one of them responding "I am not! That only happened 5 times!"

The funny thing is how accurate this is...lol
Until you grow a vagina and some boobs, I don't think you'll be treated as worse as a female on Xbox Live...years and years of crap, game after game....yeah...and it's constant, at least once every 2-3 games I'll get something for being "fat, ugly or having no life" every day...but like I said in my earlier post, it's like growing an online backbone, who really cares what someone says on the internet?

I've never been awesome at FPS games, and once in one of my first games of Halo this guy was acting cool and constantly saying how much I sucked at the game. In the middle of one of his monolouges I came up behind him and assassinated him.

He just stopped talking mid-sentence. I laughed.

He killed me right after but that doesn't matter.

Team America reference? :woop:
Well first off, Call of Duty Modern Warfare 2 is Xbox Live's child day-care center. To find someone over 12 is a miracle in itself.
PointPlaceWI's picture is too true, children love to abuse and swear over the internet because there's next to nothing you can do. They just want to get a reaction out of you, which they got.
As for being harassed about where I'm from, turns out most people aren't aware of the island that is 'New Zealand', a floating imaginary mass of land somewhere near Australia.

I got a message after a round of BFBC2 in which I killed the same dumb shit 10 times cause he kept trying to snipe from the same spot after being killed each time. The message was something about being a 300 lb no life nerd, I found it hilarious and responded with "thanks i needed a good laugh today". He started sending a trillion flame messages and telling his butt buddies to file complaints and flame me, I just set myself to busy and moved on with my day. E-thugs give me laughs when I need them the most.
