I don’t know if there is a standardized set of procedures for online rooms… so I thought I would start this thread for people to add to.
[*]If you randomly end up in a room (quick or custom) and you win… give about 5 or 6 seconds so people can leave the room if they feel they are overmatched for the room and/or for their next opponent before you begin the next match… This way, people don’t have to mess up the whole room with lag/drop due to dropping mid-match. Gives people a chance to send a quick msg, too.
[*]If you have a headphone, try not to randomly sing, rap or jawjack just for nothing. I actually think some people are doing this to help keep their opponent from hearing ciritical in-game audio. I dunno…
[*](Possible PSN-only) Don’t send messages to people mid-match - especially if they are on right side (player 2). The notification shows up over p2’s lifebars, and this can be distracting in the middle of an intense match. Also happens when friends join - which you can’t do anything about. I hate this!
[*]If somebody is totally unresponsive at the beginning of a match - it’s probably because they are trying to wrap up a quick message. Back off; they will indicate with movement when they are ready to begin the match.
[*][Unofficial:] If I respect a player… I will walk backwards or crouch-block after I have beaten them. Take this as “gg”.
Feel free to add your own… mine are PSN-specific, so indicate if yours are PSN, 360 or both. Thanks.
