    I like to pm the GM's that mute me from trade, that I have a market and I'm not even mad... but deep down inside I know I cannot troll in the market, and it hurts me.

    It takes a master to squeeze in political shitpost in a MMO thread about global chat but you made it happen. A true artist...

    3 of the 4 no votes are BPG lmfao. The most out of touch thing ive ever seen. Just rename trade to global and stop wasting our time.

    @Neilk @Bound @The Red King @Kilrath Okay lads, you obviously didn't read the poll or at least only selectively read the one word you wanted to. Explain why you don't think a global chat would be a good thing please.

    You either missed out on UW where you had Red Chicken taking about his dick all day, or hearing average say GSO Mate is not appealing to me. To each their own though. I don’t give a shit If it’s there. I just don’t think it adds anything to the game besides wanna be hard guys talk shit to each other. But whatever. I think if they put it in it needs to be moderated otherwise it will just bring out the worst people looking for attention that they never got from daddy.

    But that is funny 3 out of 4 were from BPG lol

    Hmmm... BPG willing to have global "Chaos" and global "Order", but voting no on a singular "Global" channel while their GM's cry all day about people writing in global "Trade". Quit being ding dongs... guys.

    30 second cooldown. Moderate with an iron fist. Done

    They literally already have GMs on who have to moderate trade and new player. This would probably require even less moderation tbh

    I get your point. The immature shit is very annyoing. You can still mute them though.

    It might help look the game look more active but on a sidenote the shitty behaviour can also can scare people away. Im worried about that last part

    Really? This isn't LoL, where the toxicity is directed toward new players for being new, it's almost entirely vets talking shit to vets. New players would be indifferent at worst, and at best they'd be intrigued as to why these nerds are so worked up.

    Pro tip: just mute juicy biggest QoL improvement you can make.

    Dev time is something we try to use effectively and chat is something we plan to rebuild when we do the gui. For this reason we have not put time into fixing smaller things with it because we'll be blowing away that work, it feels like a waste of time. Also we need to design the game and updates to be scalable for higher population and an unlimited global chat is likely to be too hectic to maintain.

    Please for now stop with the trade chat riots or we'll have to issue out longer mutes which we'd rather not :). We hear you guys and gals though and with chat redesign off a ways(couple months likely) we can see about a "5-min fix" that is reasonable as a stop gap but we really don't want to slow dev time with so many critical features in the mix. The chat redesign we're still deciding on a final direction but player made chat rooms with some limited regional and/or global "shout" options are one of the ideas we're leaning on now.

    Nobody is asking for you to reinvent the wheel, just add a global tab. It is literally already in the game. GM's use it for annoucements.

    Put a 30 second timer per user per message, and you won't have spam either. It's that simple.
