I was playing an online match. I was playing Tekken 6 in room and I had this mirror match with another Jin. The thing is the guy thinks I wasn’t a good Jin, so he “talked” about how bad I was and all that stuff. I didn’t care what the guy was saying, I just wanted to mute him but you can’t do that in T6. Then he starts talking about stuff based on whats happening in the match, and he taunts(taunting on the MIC) and convinces me to go on the offensive. I got really irritated and distracted by this guy, of course I end up losing.
Does this ever happen in a tournament? I think the crowd chanting and roaring is a common distraction that often happens in tournament, but it’s something that can be overcome. But when YOUR opponent is talking DIRECTLY at you, its more easy for you to get distracting. Especially when its YOUR opponent. I don’t think your opponent should be allowed to talk while the game is in motion.
