Text chat in Multiplayer?

10 replies 299 views Edited Mar 13, 2013
Basically, like MGO, you press SELECT and you can either text to everyone or just your team in the lobby and in the game. You can use the directional pads or a keyboard. This would be great in very intense matches and tournament matches. Of course, in no respawn matches, when you die, you can't use that feature to cheat. Should this be implemented?

It can also be good for people who don't have a mic or who don't want to use them.

I guess it would make sense in the lobby. But would anyone have time to text during the heat of a match? Headsets would be quicker, though I guess not everybody has one.

It's an interesting idea, but for this game to be as 100% serious as it looks, I would prefer not to have this implemented. For example how do you explain through the game why players have the ability to message each other, in MGO it was through SOP. But then again mics throw that reasoning out the window...

I love in game chat. The way it's implimented would have to depend ont he gamemode though. For instance if a gamemode is team based then you of course you'd want a team locked chat. Or even better yet the chat is "local" so only players within say 30m could see your text, you'd want to make sure not to discuss strategies within enemy ears.

^ Well, in MGO, before you started typing, there was a choice of public text or team locked text everytime you wanted to type.

I wonder how proximity chat would work in this game. Similar to you and your enemies in Uncharted 3... but with all people of course. That would really had to the realism.

The text chat in the Playstation 3 menu works well enough, imo. In some cases, it might be more efficient than voice chat.

I wish everyone that played online gaming had a mic. It's so frustrating not being able to communicate properly with your team.
