Can we please get some word on this? Why aren't team colors associated with the players? It really bothers me trying to read that thin white text and not seeing at a glance whether it is friendly or not. Red and Greenish/blue was awesome contrasting colors in Ostfront that helped you pay attention to what was the enemy taunts or friendly commands.

We already have the font and text we should use in the Allies and Axis reinforcement count, why not just apply that to the chat? It worked great in RO1

I still don't know why commander shows up as grey sometimes...
It's so confusing.

Erm, pretty sure if you're seeing text, it's a friendly.
Press Y and you can talk to the enemy, it is also uncolored, the only difference is you'll see:
Ossian: Hello how are you?
Instead of
(Team)Ossian: Hello how are you?

90% of the time I don't even realize people are talking, the font is so small and unnoticeable on some maps the snowy ground is the same color as the text and it is driving me crazy.

I wish they would have a setting so we could also increase chat font size. I have to squint just to see it. :(

There should also be an indicator whether the writer is TL or SL or in the same FT etc.

The chat should have more rows and longer fade-out time as well

I know this isn't really a bug and it isn't high on the list, but can we at least get a nod that they'll think about it?

Oh and we should also be able to chat between rounds and so forth. We should be able to chat constantly at all times except map change.

It should be high on the list, as I for one, never look at the chat.. one its filled with spamming rules by servers.. or its all just too white and im worried about playing.. Any other game chat catches my eye, RO2, nope.

I'd like a different color/font. I haven't looked, but for me it was much easier to keep an eye on chat on RO1 than RO2.

And if you are making the ingame chat more useable, can you also please fix the "vote screen" chat? There are even the names missing of the people writing. It is the perfect place to spit some anonymous hate.
