Personnally, I think they should have kept cross chat, but killed chat for dead players (that should not be able to talk anyway)

Yes, cross chat was worthless.

While it was fun to banter back and forth, the poor sports giving out allied positions negated any value it had.

RIP cross chat, and never return.

It was pretty funny.  All the trash talking and flaring of positions.  As entertaining as it was, game play is better without it.

Cross chat on. Trolling and flaring of positions  who cares (texting on a phone stinks). IF you wanted competitive game play don't play pubs. Else let it  happen let the trolls play. Let the friends find each other, let complements happen. This censoring is wrong. Baby sitting adult is restricting and not helpful.

that part I agree with. I think it's the only reason WG got rid of cross chat, and they didn't want to have to deal with it. But killing chat for dead players have this problem solve. (and no dead players pinging the map is a plus right?)

I love cross chat and miss it dearly, it was fun. I did hate the "Flaring of positions" as you guys call it, that was bonk. Bring it back....."Censorship is wrong."

Removing it was one of the best things WG did. Its up there with regenerating consumables.

wargaming should just disable my chat in general because I don't have the self control to not just turn it back on to screech at people, cross chat was ludicrously toxic, team chat is just toxic.

If they add bots,the other team will be mighty quiet, unless they put in trash talking ones.

The only thing they really needed to do with Chat period is simply implemented one of the good "Clean Chat" mods so we didn't have to see vulgarity (including implied), as well as other worthless things, i.e. the entire pointless sentence, was removed, not just simply vulgar "words" censored.

 

Teams reporting on players position wasn't "that" big of a deal, and again pointless sentences could have been censored if someone was saying nothing worthwhile in that sentence.

Chat was SO peaceful with one of those good mods.  I had a nice listing, and I almost NEVER say any crap from anyone.

Ah yes i truly miss those times where allies would tell opponents our positions on the map. Why is this even a question OP? Crosschat was even more toxic than teamchat.

Don't miss it one bit, besides giving away positions it was extremely distracting having your teamates and other team criticize you as you're one of the last ones to die.  Your too busy fighting for you life to respond to their misinformation.

 

I guess if was optional I would just turn it off, but I don't see a way to solve giving away positions, preventing dead players from talking would eliminate most of this but it's not worth it.

I am glad WG removed cross chat because this way I can focus all of my anger and rage at only 14 players rather than spreading it to 29.

Cross chat was only something for the TRASH talking Trolls. RIP Cross chat.  The only sad part now. Is these very same trolls now only have their own team to trash talk. Thx you WG's for adding the "block for this battle" option.

I pretty much quit playing arty when cross chat went away because 90% of the fun was when people would rage in chat after you hit them.
