    When you start a game online (Except mmorpg), what do you say at first?
    There's the usual GLHF but maybe others say something else...
    maybe one or two years ago, I used to start my Civilization Wars games (a warcraft 3 map) by saying :
    Good luck
    Have fun
    and Wololo

    (some guy talked about wololo in another topic and that reminded me this^^)

    What about you guys? when you start a game (a game with a lobby or such) do you say something special? Of course, GL HF is excluded ;)

    I hardly play games with people online. Even when I do, I don't really have much of a catchphrase. Not much of a stickler for structure.

    Not necessarily a catch phrase
    For example, in Overwatch, I had a friend who was destroying most of his base by shooting on oxygen bottle and computer, etc

    I thought it was going to be something like if I have not played for a while do I jump right in or do a few warm up rounds? Rituals and catchphrases... No for the former and talking in online games never leads anywhere productive so I don't do it.
    Warm up rounds wise then I know I will not be on top form so while I jump right into ranked matches (because who cares about rank for anything?) I don't worry if I am not in the groove right away.

    I'm not very original. The few times that I start an online game, it's always "GLHF" or "GG". I'm not sure how oldskool it is, but I still always end with "GG" (and some chatter afterwards in case things were out-of-the oridinary funny, disappointing or otherwise remarkable).

    never thought I had to say anything, I just start playing. there's a rule that you need a catchphrase before playing ? didn't know that.
    I press play, and play. like, Mario kart online, you don't say anything, you just join, and play.
    if people want to talk while playing, why not. but no need doing it to start playing.

    I think that's kind of you to welcome the other player and wish them good luck. not a lot of people might do it.
    but I think most just play, and don't care about other players. or just get to know while playing.

    I encountered people when playing Phantansy Star Online or Monster hunter, but that was while playing, We never wished us good luck for the current play session. we join hub, and when we are ready, we play. at best, we talk to choose what to do, which party or quest to do.

    I don't really say anything in League, but I used to have a bind to say glhf in CSGO and would spam it just before the game started.
