Apart from the look of the chat it would be nice if players had more control about which messages they see.

In the chat settings you can filter messages. News, System, World, Party, Normal, Guild, Whisper, and Trade. I think it would be nice if you could also filter on people in your Friendlist.

I'm guessing part of the chat limit is that you might be able to say more in Korean with fewer characters? I'm using Google Translate and a word count as basis for this, so I could be wrong! Still, 100 characters is pretty limiting. I'd love to see this increased. :)

Another thing the chat in Black Desert is missing is the option to create custom chat channels or at least having a channel for guild officers and the commander.

Agree! Please at least double the amount of characters. It's really annoying to split proper sentences in two or three pieces.

Besides I would really like to be able to change colour and size of chattext. Playing on a TV-screen it is hardly possible to read the chat, even with largest possible UI.

Black Desert Online outshines other MMOs in many ways... except this one. Having played many other games, I think it's safe to say BDO's chat function is too limited in several ways.

  1. The character limit is annoying, as others have noted for their various reasons. If I were an RPer I'd probably be extremely annoyed by this, but even just trying to chat with a friend via whisper last night was annoying due to the character limit.
  2. The wonky whispering mechanic. I just want to be able to type /w <character name> or <family name> and have it go through, not have to deal with this strange tabbing business.
  3. Whispering to a friend took my character out of combat stance, which is unacceptable.Whether this is due to the keywords-to-emote animations feature or not, I don't know, but holy hell is it ever annoying.
  4. The transparency of the chat window needs to be adjustable. Not just when you're mousing over it, but all the time. Players need to be able to glance at chat and read it as they're doing other things when they can't press CTRL in order to activate the mouse cursor.
  5. Chat font size needs to be customizable. It should go without saying that we should be able to comfortably read chat, whether because of monitor size or vision issues.
  6. Chat channel/function colors need to be customizable. We all come from a variety of other games and while we understand there are a lot of new things to simply get used to in BDO, for some of us, blue will always be party chat color! :)
  7. One feature I found extremely valuable from Guild Wars 2 was the /wiki function that opened up a browser window to whatever search term you entered in following the wiki command. Considering the depth and complexity of BDO, I think such a feature would be welcome.
  8. Chat logs need to be downloadable for the security and benefit of both players and the game's developers and publishers.
  9. Standard text-related keyboard operations such as CTRL plus arrow keys, HOME, END in combination with SHIFT to select should be a matter of course.
  10. Alert sounds when being whispered or for other notifications (customizable by the player) would be helpful.
  11. I don't know why there is some kind of secondary messaging window that is separate from the chat function, but it's clunky and doesn't seem to work well. It says there are alert sounds but not once did I hear them.

Thanks for considering these suggestions. :)

This needs to happen.

Several times I was trying to talk to people in party, and my sentences were cut off cause the limit just isn't reasonable for the english language.

As an RPer I agree, we need longer chat boxes and other quality of life changes like a toggle-able walk.. but knowing most MMO devs and companies they will probably just ignore us and try to milk income from other groups and leave us to beg for changes. Though here is hoping I am wrong.

There was also a chat bug, sometimes randomly chat tabs were overlapping on each other, you need to implement a lock system so that we dont accidently mess up our chat.

And i don't know if you have the issue in other languages too, but in french when you create a new tab, you can choose which channel you want to read.

Ok that nice but ... They messed all the said channels. For exemple if you chose to not read the world chan, it actually disable the group one ... That lead to some really annoying situations ...

Hello,

i really like chatting with my guildies in games, so a good chat is a must for me personally. After playing the beta for several hours I got two suggestions for improving the chat:

  • More Characters! The limit of characters in a single message is very, very low and makes it hard to write full sentences. I suggest to extend the character limit per message by at least 50% to give users the option to write full sentences instead of multiple text fragments.
  • Every textbox in the internet and in almost every application has the feature to allow users to press Control and use the arrow keys in order to quickly jump between words. I use this alot and would love to see it added to BDO.

Another minor improvement:

  • Allow users to press Control+A to select the whole text they wrote. This is useful for copying text for later reuse.

Other great additions (credits go to Biggz!):

  1. The character limit is annoying, as others have noted for their various reasons. If I were an RPer I'd probably be extremely annoyed by this, but even just trying to chat with a friend via whisper last night was annoying due to the character limit.
  2. The wonky whispering mechanic. I just want to be able to type /w <character name> or <family name> and have it go through, not have to deal with this strange tabbing business.
  3. Whispering to a friend took my character out of combat stance, which is unacceptable.Whether this is due to the keywords-to-emote animations feature or not, I don't know, but holy hell is it ever annoying.

+1 for this!

Exactly what myself and several others of my friends want!

Yes, yes, all of this!

Especially the ability to use control and arrows and control A and the bigger limit of characters.

This game feels too much like a single player with the current chat options, for a game that's suppose to be breaking boundaries it's almost as bad as Blade & Soul's UI/Chat system if not worse in some cases. I want to be able to label chat tabs so I know what's what, I want to be able to have a combat log, I'm tired of the pop-up spam for loot even though I've disabled it only to continue seeing the pop-up and a lot of the system information that gets spammed into chat is nothing but clutter..

I really hope that they at least increase the chat character limit some more. That`s actually the most important thing of the whole chat system and probably it`s also one of the simplest things to implement...
