Allow us to do server wide map chats with the enemy servers

Will be nice if we can do map chats with our enemy servers.
Warfare should not only be on the ground.
There should be verbal warfare and propaganda allowed too.
There shouldn't be communication silence between enemy servers.
Not realistic.

Alternate account spying and stream sniping is already a thing so nothing much would change there.

Also we could add an option for players to disable this chat if they are really adverse to toxicity and salt. The template is already in the game where you can choose which chats to display. Players who don't like it just choose not to display it.

    I'd like it for talking to certain people after a good fight. Voted other because the salt would be unreal for some of the toxic players, and there are plenty of them. I can't see it happening, it would be nothing but kitten talk. I'd probably just mute it.

    No, you must be mad

    No, with the current system I get salt and spam when I rekt someone who think he has skill.
    Imagine the amount of salt and messages I would get on a daily basis. I rekt about 100+ players daily and about 10 message me with salt!

    There's already enough of local salt enabling through /t chat - we do not need to enable what would further give people like this a purpose increase their toxicity, especially to unload on opposing servers. This will just further enhance and promote that activity/behaviour. It may be nice for a few people, or maybe even the majority, who knows - but it only takes a few to spoil it for everyone. If you're interested in maybe seeing off topic weird chat and political views (NA in particular lol), this is probably what you'll see too.

  • Now that you've brought up chat, I've been wondering- does /s work for the enemies around you? I like to "gg" or ":)" after a good battle, but I don't know if they actually see it.

    The ammount of salt would be glorious... The chat would be very entertaining but overall I think it would be very very bad since there are a lot of thin skinned carebears who can't take a bit of smack talk.

    I'm not against toxicity and salt, just offering up an alternative.
    Also, enable team chat in all zones, not just in WvW.

    Why not, the mode can't get any worse.

    Do not fear simplification of the game, there is elegance in simplicity that allows more time for playing and less time building.

    I see not reason to add yet another forum for the toxic minority to further spread their behaviour. Cause that is what they are, a minority believing their mindset is part of the majority.

    The no choice is literally the best description for it. This would be madness. No global chat has ever been good in any game.

    The problem is instead of flame wars between enemy servers/guilds/players, it'd just get filled up with random nonsensical screeching and bad trolling so even the people who want to get invested in "verbal warfare and propaganda", as you put it, would end up muting it.

    If that's the case, then maybe we should also keep the imbalance and troll builds in the game :D then the tears will truly be sweet

    Don't really care, would love if you could see enemy names tho. Also the really annoying kind of toxicity is rarely directed at enemies in games, almost always at your own team. The kind you get from some obsessed person blocking >whispering you is mainly fun

    Ögonen omges av vita och svarta penseldrag som gör att de ser större ut än vad de egentligen är. Baksidan av lodjurets öron kantas av svart päls som slutar i den karaktäristiska tofsen högst upp på örat. Lodjurets svans är kortare än de flesta andra kattdjurs.

    Funny isn't it lol

    I could picture all professions getting along-chatting instead of fighting each other- including mesmer and thief

    If this ever would be a thing: imagine PvP and WvW turning into a lobby were we all (enemies and friendly server) can share our frustrations and our dissatisfactions with the state and direction of the game including our negative experiences?

    Certainly, i would participate

    Maybe an optional joint server channel for map chat only that players can choose to remove from their chat tabs or ignore if not wanting to read?

    You should've seen the community wvw forum. The stuff around here is comparably tame and quite constructive.

    That said, the negatives of cross-team chat outweigh the positives.

    There is this saying that goes: your tears are sweet...

    You do realise this GW2, right? Have you not noticed that even talking politely about other servers in your match is banned on these forums? That the official line promoted by the company that runs the game is "The best community in MMOS"? That every bad word on these forums is replaced automatically with the word "kitten"?

    What would make you ever think that this particular game is "about toxicity and salt"? It is and always has been about co-operation and smiles, at least in the official version. WvW doesn't get a pass on the company ethos.

  • joneirikb.7506joneirikb.7506 Member ✭✭✭✭
    Yes, will make the game more well-rounded and fresh

    The easiest way to do this, is create a new chat channel (like /wvw or something) have it disabled by default. So you have to go in and enable it. 99% of players would never even know it existed.

    The positive part of this ? It might actually make a couple of the people that usually hate whisper try to use this channel instead, perhaps believing that everyone else playing WvW would be engaged enough to enable it. Which overall would result in less hate whispers to people not interested in seeing them. Obviously anyone that wants to get hate whispers is going to have /wvw enabled anyways, so as to not lose any salt.


    Regarding spying, honestly it wouldn't do a single thing to change that.

    • Currently anyone can make a free account level it up to the proper level, and go into wvw and sit there an spy. Grab a guild invite from your guild or just whisper info/messages/activate tactivators etc.
    • The only change is that now they could announce this in /wvw chat instead of through their own guild chat or whisper ? I mean... the only thing they accomplish is show beyond a doubt that they are spying/sabotaging, so their enemy knows about it (and can thus plan around it).

    So, depending on how dumb the spies are, this would effectively be a handicap for them....


    Now trolling, that would run rampant. I approve.
