i don't know what game you play, but Modern Warfare 2 is the prime example. Actual Skill is almost totally dead. most games that aren't objective based are just camp matches. then, whoever has the most/least kills trash talks everyone, the former laughs about his l33t lag switch and the latter complains that everyone is a hacker. team spirit is dead except in real clans. and like you said, the only female players i've met in almost a year are actually IN MY CLAN. and yes, i'm about fed up with 3 year olds trash talking after they fail at the game.
