I thought this was something everyone wanted since day one of release? I expected this to be a quick addition that would considerably improve ingame community. Just a simple font color based on team, red and blue.
I just came from the beta where I was trying to chat at the only other player on the server and he wasn't even paying attention because he probably thought it was server messages.

Can tripwire please shed some light on this? Is it really hard to code this in? Can you pull aside a coder for a day and get him to work on it? I'm sure no one would protest postponing classic for one day to get this change in.

Thanks.

(PS, why do we not have a single fire/full auto indicator like RO1?)

Agreed.

I would also like to add that I still think end of round chat should be enabled again like it was in RO1.

The camaraderie on the servers is still suffering from the imposed silence at the ends of rounds. A few GGs, well played and goodbyes go a long way to keeping the community strong.

yeh, strange really. Such a standard thing and always had plenty of time to chat at end of rounds in Ostfront. I think we know why it wasn't done but you're not allowed to say that anymore.:) Time to move on and hope they get round to it some time in 2012.

I really agree with you.


I have already bring this to TWI, but they only close my forum message.

But this is very important for team and say communication.

This is real a real pain in the ***. And TWI has min thoughts of this, but ths is vey important for communitcatins.

No doubt they have more important things they should put priority on, but this is one of those no brainer things, like a real compass on the HUD (now in classic beta), that's hard to explain why it wasn't there in the first place.

Afaik they do have plans on improving the chat but atm they're busy fixing and modifying the game. An ingame chatlog would be useful too.
