say, "Thanks!"? Or respond with a thumb's up, in return?  Apparently something happens around 60% -- data is only from my personal experience, but it seems a real effect.


I'm not one of those who gushes MH 'effective/team player' in every game, or starts a wall of chat like some lonely shut-in, but a subset of players seems unwilling to initiate, return, or acknowledge a complement, or briefest of "good game!" comments. Weird.

I don't respond at all to a thumbs up, unless I recognize the person giving it to me.  I'm not trying to humblebrag, but I get way more than I would want to respond to.  Very very rarely will I give a thumbs up, I generally only do it when someone saves my a ss or truly impresses me.   MH is such a sh itshow I can't take it seriously, and I can't take all day to send a thank you to everyone who gives a thumbs up.  If someone sends me a post game message though, then I'll thank them and I'm happy to have a nice little convo with them.


I think it's a numbers game, not intentional rudeness.  When someone passes 60% they are having good games all the time so they are constantly getting thumbs up.

I only respond (positively...) to people who PM me "nice game" or something like that, or I saw did an amazing job, or helped me out in a big way. Other than that, responding to every OK gameplay decision devalues the truly masterful players' decisions. You only get a limited number of thumbs up, so save them for players that actually deserve them.

I'm a 60%er and I give out thumbs up in the majority of battles. I know MH is meaningless, but I just like to think they say "good job" or "thanks for helping" to teammates and "good fight" to opponents.


I occasionally message a thanks to someone who gives me a thumbs up or return the favor, but not always. It depends on many things, including if I gave out all my upvotes already, what the player did in battle (e.g. I got an effective player yesterday from a guy who spent most of the battle yelling at me for running away (after I got blasted and lost 1300 of my hp) even though I managed to survive and do top damage in a win. I did not return that thumbs up), my mood and the alignment of the planets.

I give thumbs up/down quite often and typically don’t expect to receive, nor do I give an Ingame message. I think it’s similar to a “thank you” nothing less, nothing more.

I use all my thumbs up randomly, It mean there's a lot of 40%'s with purple stars because of me.

If I die I'm on to the next game.  My playing time is limited and I'm not going to use it watching others play.  Many times I receive a thumbs up but I'm in a game.  By the time I realize I've been given a thumbs up the time window has closed for me to give one in return.  That being said I will almost always respond to a PM.

Rest in Peace CJ.  You will be missed.

I’ve actually had people give me thumbs up, and when I didn’t give one back to them, they have PM’d asking why I did respond in kind.  
I’m like....seriously did you just ask that???

Since there is no limit to how many thumbs up, I hand them out to anyone that carried their own weight or made a great play that helped me or the team. I PM peeps that did an outstanding job and tell them nice job if they are on red or green. Why be bashful about reinforcing good play.

I give a thumbs up to anyone who gives me one. 

Mid im not returning a thumbs up, I give them to the top three damage earners (that aren’t me). 


I know it’s mostly meaningless, but it never hurts to encourage good play. 



Also, I always give a thumbs up or worthy opponent to any forumer I recognize, regardless of their performance; just as a way of saying “hi” and acknowledging them.

Yeah, I'm back. Let's not make a big deal about this.

I dont pay attention to it unless someone sends me one, then I try to return the gesture if it seems appropriate. But Im not going to call someone who potatoed an "effective player". I want to be kind and considerate when others are, but cant go that far.

I hand them out regularly.  I know I'm no lifetime 60%er, but I get my fair share of thumbs up from battles and it hasn't jaded me from doing so in kind to teammates that deserve it.  High damage or being a significant contributor in some other way will usually earn one.  If a red played a really strong battle and overcame the odds, I'll reward them, too.

If I remember (doesn't happen a lot) I'll usually give a thumbs up to the person who does the most damage on the team when it's not me. I also give thumbs to people who I feel performed particularly well in a match. Back when they first changed MH I would say thanks to anyone who gave me a thumbs up. Now, just because everyone loves to give out tons of upvotes, there are too many to worry about responding too unless I know the person who gave me one.
