Hi all -

1st of all - I really like the game. It feels different from the others and fits the time period really well. It also feels like the MP is going to be awesome and that it will really shine played this way as we have seen in dev clashes. (PS. If you are ever looking for normal players to fill the ranks feel free to give me a shout anytime )

However, not having the simple ability to type and communicate to other players is just a bizarre decision.

This could perhaps be somewhat forgiven if the MP lobby had a chat box... Which it doesn't seem to, because then you could at least post discord details before the game started.

I am not sure how this basic - I was going to say feature - but it isn't even a feature, it is the basic ability to communicate isn't in the game.

Please add one. Even if its just a chat box.

Indeed, there should be a chat.

Maybe I'm misremembering, but I thought they are adding chat in a patch? I don't remember exactly, so don't quote me on this one.

According to a recent stream/video; they might implement it if there is enough demand but they noted that a lot of people either play with friends or in organized groups and use services such as Discord to instead provide their communication, so it's not high on the list IIRC.

whoever said that in todays day and age all you need to comunicate with players in big mp games is a mic is wrong.

i dont want to hunt people on discord (i dont even want to have discord perhaps?) every time i want to say something like : " send me 50g" (very short message) , while i am in the middle of doing 50 other things. i dont want everyone to hear what i am talking with X or Y person aswell , i dont want to meddle with channels , i DONT want

2nd thing : there are people who dont want to use mic, they are hesitant to join the game because of that. you are making it harder for me to find players


your current mp chat (sorry that was a joke , it doesnt exist) is unacceptable

+1 super-ridiculous it launched without in game chat. It was so awkward to watch Devs crash out of the Dev Clash because they had tabbed to slack to communicate with others. The combination of an unstable game in MP and a lack of in game chat forces players to tab out to slack/discord messages to communicate discreetly and hinders the player experience.
