Strategy Informer: Is talking in-game bad?

Strategy Informer: "We're storming the enemy, ready to take the last point and claim victory. I look around at the rest of my Battlefield 2 buddies, before surging forward for what will hopefully be the final push. It's been an incredible round and I can't wait to go again straight after.
