There's not much to discuss about the way chat will work, IMO. But what you said sounds good to me. All I hope is that there will be no "chat to everyone"; only team chat.

Perhaps we could get some taunts too; "You Rebel scum!" and then you shoot :)

ehm only team chat would be a pain in the ass, believe me there exists no game with only team chat and no general

right?

And all games these days have voice chat, i dont think this will be missing in a team based game (MOVE IN!) though the Q is if there will be general voice chat (like in ET) or only team voice chat (COD)

How many threads do you make each day?

Your pushing down all other (and most time better) ones!

I never use voice chat, it makes me feel silly to talk to my computer

haha. I agree, tFighterPilot.

There will probably be both team and general chat. The only game that I've really played taht I can compare to is Jedi Outcast multiplayer. I hope the chat isn't like that, it sucked. But at least in JO you could do general chat, team chat, and even chat to 1 specific person. (and your text could be in different colors, hehe)

well... I guess it didn't entirely suck, but I hope they make it somewhat better in SWBF

The chat options in Enemy Territory are guite good - although some people abuse them.

I would like to see voice chat support out of the box, to be honest - if it's feasible.

I said team chat only because it adds to the realism. Also, experience tells me that sometimes, immature players will turn the game in a flame war against the other team. That sucks when it happens :(

Well I suppose I sound dumb then, because I can't really explain it. It was good for that game. I guess what I really mean is swbf should have a different type of chat. which is a dumb thing to say because why would it be the same? Anyway, since swbf is more team based and strategical I think it should have an easier way to communicate with your team and to actually get a chance to read what they say before it disappears from the top of your screen.

So I hope I haven't made a complete idiot of myself yet. I'll wait til I get in game to do that ;)
