I try not to take it too seriously either way, but it's my competitive nature taking over during league play. And if I notice my opponent not wanting to talk, I respect their wishes.
Same here exactly. Depends on the league situation too - if the match outcomes matter at all or not, as sometimes at the end of season it doesn't.
