WG took out cross team chat mostly for reducing flaming opponents but it's stupid that you can't interact with opponents even when they're on you're friend list to say "hi", or 'have some fun banter' etc. Add the ability to send cross team messages back if someone is on your friend list on the opposite side. The regular TAB in game for chat could cycle populate any name you have as a friend on the opposite side. Social interaction is a big part of games like this I think. You should be able to at least interact with friends in game imho

reason they don't do that is in case you decide to start telling your friend where people on your team are

 

which honestly isn't that hard to do with ts....or steam chat..or a million other 3rd party programs.   but WG can at least say "well not in game".....so honestly a "limp victory" for them.

Literally anything you can do with cross team chat you can do through PM's. Cross team chat never needed to exist

I have seen an increase in people chasing me into the garage because they can't spew it in game.

Yah, we all know that lame argument.... if people are conspiring to share positions etc they'll be on teamspeak etc most likely... as u say

Not entirely sure that friendly chat needs to exist either, m8.

Not gonna happen. This game isn't designed as a social app it's designed to kill stuff

There's not real use for it as it's rare to get any actual use from it. I mean yeah it's great for having long conversations in lieu of winning but other than that I see no sense for it

Hmmm....haven't had a single incidence of someone PMing me after a battle since cross team chat has been removed.  Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

I only catch crap in game over my premium tanks, just got called a wallet warrior two days ago, I simply remind them that without me they couldn't sponge off the game

WG should just take it further, and eliminate all socialization in the game.  Get rid of all chat.  Get rid of General Chat channel.  Get rid of Clan Chat.  Get rid of Personal Messaging.  Get rid of Platoons.

 

This will reduce toxicity and make the game better for all the [edited]who have no friends who hate knowing other people are allowed to be social.
