Chat Limit, Still Too Short


279 posts in this topic

I'll jump in and agree here that the chat limit will be way too small for English. We require a lot more space than Korean to get across thoughts. It will end up looking more like spam than conversations.

Please increase the limit. 300 characters is probably a good size to work with (around there). I'm not sure what other MMOs usually use.

Adding my voice to the din.

Is Daum ever going to even respond and let us know that they've seen this complaint? Being restricted to less characters than flippin' Twitter of all things is unacceptable.

500 characters is what other MMO's I've played have. 100 characters is basically un-usable for RP, which is a big reason many people are interested in this game (myself included).

Yeah, gonna have to agree. Both Blade & Soul and BDO seem to suffer from this. At the very least, a longer chat limit is a must.

The extension of the text would go a long way in this game. So +1

I've found it almost impossible to communicate with other people in the game since starting yesterday. Please Daum, at least let us know that you see this!

It's not possible to communicate efficiently with this horrible chat box limit

I know there are a million things going on for launch, but I think this small change is something all players can get behind.

+1zillion for this idea

I dont mind smallish chat limits but 100 characters is just silly, 300-500 would be about the minimum for folks to get across everything they want without spamming /say and such....i'm generally a fan of conversational rp over paragraph rp but even that becomes tricky under such short limitations.

Coming from Archeage the chat limits were a big issue because they were so limiting. Unfortunately Black Desert is Worse. Ignoring RP if I'm trying to communicate with a friend I'll be sending at least three separate posts. Need this changed.

Yes please incress the chat length . I was talking to my friend in party, trying to explain a simple thing. we ended up going to skype so I could explain it in once complete sentence.

Global chat should remain around the same, but for local, party and guild chat, it could use a limit increase.

Please increase this once you guys get the important things done (server issues/launch) It needs to be at least doubled.

All in all this is a serious issue with Black Desert Online, but if it can be fixed I would say the game will definitely have taken a step boldly in the right direction.

*Rolls in*

Getting on board with this~!  The sandbox elements of BDO reminds me ve~~~ry strongly of Galaxies, which still stands as one of mah favourite MMOs of all time~ Roleplay was a major contributing factor towards continuing to sub. to that game for 5-6 years, and effective means of communication is pretty darn key to that.  Making the process of communication easier and streamlined is no bad thing, right?  Enabling people to be able to type entire sentences, mebbe even adding in some of those additional ideas (/em, /me or /e flavour text?  Please yes, please~).  S' not just for roleplayers, the ability to separate/identify different chats by colour aids in just about any endeavour.  Additionally, time stamps?  While not essential, they also aid in (Historically, going by other games) tracking the flow of conversation - a time stamp is a clear and easy way to indicate a new line in the chat.

 

Anyway... please, Daum?  Plea~~~~~se? *Puppy eyes* Increase the chat limit, incorporate some of the ideas listed in the original post, make it more appealing for a subset of the community to want to stick around for years and continue to shower you all in money 'cause the pretty cash shop outfits are gorgeous and damned if we don't need to look gorgeous too~

*Rolls out*

Hello there,

Pretty much as I just posted here, I've passed your feedbacks to the right people and hopefully we will see something good come out of it. Bare in mind, no matter the changes it can take time, but this is definitely something I'll try to push. :)

Thank you for this response, Tytyes. This is important to a lot of us and while the chatlimit is fine for countries using logographies, us poor latin alphabet users are a little more needy! :)

Thank you so much! Hopefully our feedback won't fall on deaf ears! Just add a toggle for walk and I am set for life here!
