Potential Solution To Toxicity

Now a while back there used to be in-match chat where both the Survivors and Killer can communicate throughout a match. However this was removed due to toxicity and people goading each other to talking to stop them from completing objectives.

So now the community over the past years has moved their toxicity to the post-game lobby where they continue to degrade and attack each other like 6th graders picking on a kid in Facebook.

My suggestion is that since Behaviour went one step through the door in removing the in-match chat, why not take the other step through the door and just outright remove chat completely? Toxicity will be next to eliminated unless the perpetrators choose to harass their victims through other communication methods which normal violates the platforms' codes of conduct under harassment rules.

If this suggestion is too harsh, then how about making it so Survivors and Killers can't see the opposing team's chat in the post-game lobby? This will at least allow Killers to not be harassed by Survivors nor harass them in turn, but allow Survivors to continue building potential friendships through chat for forming Survive With Friends groups.

Please post your thoughts as I hope to have the Devs take a serious look at this solution.

    I'd not mind removing the post-game chat completely. I've the box already closed 24/7.

    Combine that with a profile where only friends can leave comments and you're basically free from harrassment other than flashlight clickings and teabagging.

    How do you close that box? Please tell me there's a way in the options!

    @Feleas There's a >> at the bottom right corner of the chatbox, I believe. If you press that, the chatbox closes and won't open until you reopen it yourself.

    No i wanna have a chance to flame those teammates who are too dumb to play a normal game and just think of yolosaving me every time or not commit their objectives, or to bully those killers who are just able to tunnel and camp or use noed on t1 killers. those ones deserve to get flamed !

    Thank you very much. I honestly didn't know this was in the game.

    Wow are you having that harsh problems with the end game chat? Because i really enjoy having a talk with the rest and i barely have problems with toxic behavior. I hope its due to my playstyle, since i really do pay attention to play fair and enjoyable (on both sides).

    The only problem i have so far is that i sometimes are just talking to myself since there is no indication of someone leaving the chat :/
