What is the reason console is excluded from this?

It should be removed from the game entirely if console can't participate.

    Because the game was originally out for only PC and has been there since the beginning. It wasn't added to console because the lack of keyboard i'm assuming.

    Because it'd take console forever to type out anything. By time console could type out anything more than gg the end game screen would time out. PC player with keyboard could totally trash a console player that can't respond back quick enough using a controller.

    Couldn't you just have a messaging system you get accsess to in the main lobby?

    I think it funny with the comments above. where they think it takes alot of time to type up something very long when consoles have to place a 32 digit code for an exclusive dwightcrow charm.

    Also there are auto filling so I think it wouldn't be that bad

    Why waste resources to make platform specific in game chats when console platforms already have their own messaging systems players can easily use without timing out. There's plenty of console performance issues already, they don't need to waste time adding coding that will most likely create additional bugs for an unnecessary end game chat when they could be working on fixing the current bugs/performance issues.

    Console literally has the ability to type with a keyboard too or a phone if they want to.

    and yes if there is any sort of "reason" they decided not to give it to console then absolutely PC shouldn't have it either.

    The endgame chat is either ‘GG’ or some sort of OTT abuse, so you’re not really missing much. I even had a guy send me a friend request today (I have my messages turned off) just so he could send me abuse. People are just weirdos and apparently they can’t separate reality from fiction. I’m convinced people should be given psych evaluations before being allowed internet access.

    Console players have been complaining about how pc biased that code is and how it takes too long to type out the 32 digit code. Fog whisperers have had to adjust giving away the code to wait until console players have entered all by last one or two digits so they have a chance.

    I want an explanation when team mates decide they're going to be toxic for no reason and the same with a killer. Then to see OH thats cool. I'm the only person here who isn't allowed to SEE the chat taking place let alone participate.

    If you're going to force console players to play at a disadvantage against PC players all because they want to play with the other consoles. The least they can do is add the chat in. How hard could that be.

    You can disable crossplay if you don't like playing with PC players.

  • iZombieiZombie Member Posts: 231

    You’re looking for answers you probably won’t get. Since when did people explain why they were toxic? And if they actually did, what makes you think you’d walk away satisfied with what they say? It’s better to just move along and not waste your time.

    This isn’t a console issue by the way, because at least one person is always ‘excluded’ when there’s a crossplay player in their lobby.

  • ASurvkillivorerASurvkillivorer Member Posts: 1,567

    What do you mean it isn't a console issue. PC has end game chat and consoles don't. Thats a console issue.

    As for answers I would rather be able to say something. Rather than be locked out of the room.

  • iZombieiZombie Member Posts: 231

    But PC players can’t message me on PS4, but other PS4 players can and so forth and so on. Each platform can message amongst theirselves. Sure, we can’t speak to PC players, but they also can’t speak to us. Works both ways.

  • ASurvkillivorerASurvkillivorer Member Posts: 1,567

    No it doesn't because thats not what im talking about. Do you play on PC?

    At the end of the game all the PC players can talk to eachother in the screen that functions as a chat room.

    The specific console can't talk to anyone other than their own console. Its not like Xbox can message PS4 users directly.

    They should also go ahead an MAKE a messaging service in game. That way you can message someones account directly. That way it can actually be a crossplay and not a "crossfriends" because you could actually communicate with a person on another network other than adding and wondering if they want to play.

    For years now now the report function on console has a "Communication Abuse" template. Why? It doesn't apply to the consoles in any way shape or form. Either remove it or make it relevant.

  • TerroTerro Member Posts: 1,171

    Add it in or don't add it in. Remove it or not. It really won't make a difference.

  • iZombieiZombie Member Posts: 231

    No I don’t play on PC, I said in the post you quoted that I’m on PS4 lol.

    I know what you’re saying but you’re making out like console players are being excluded. From the chat box? Yes, but not from communicating in general. If a PC killer is in a lobby with only console survivors, sure they have the chat box, but who can they talk to if nobody else can see it?

    The reason it’s this way is because the chat box is coded into the game and the coding is completely different for console. Plus, as other people have said, typing on a controller and typing on a keyboard are two entirely different things.

    I doubt the majority of console players could even be bothered to sit and type out messages, so I can’t see there being a big demand for this feature to be implemented.

    There should just be a few words you can click on like GG, Well Played and a few smileys, thumbs down if you are displeased with something. But this whole "write anything you want" stuff should not be allowed. By having only a few options on what to say then the end game chat would never be a problem and could include consoles.

  • ASurvkillivorerASurvkillivorer Member Posts: 1,567

    I can guarantee the majority of players would use it. Anyone who uses messaging anyways has the app open and allows them to message as quickly as they could text on the phone anyways.

    Case and point there is zero logical reason console should be excluded from EGC.

    You're on console making an argument on why console shouldn't have it. Are you okay? You're arguing just to argue. Who cares if console players can message console players. It has nothing to do with what im talking about. The issue you're talking about would also be fixed if console players got end game chat. Because console players ARE excluded from the chat. Irrelevant technicalities aside that is the reality. Console has no end game chat and PC does. PC can't use EGC to talk to console players? Whoa, give egc to console players problem fixed. At least as it stands now PC can use it when playing PC. Something is better than nothing.

    The game isnt rated E for everyone so I dont see the point of that

  • TricksTricks Member Posts: 957

    I'd imagine it would be because typing on a controller would take too long and the person on the other end could not articulate what they want to convey within a timely manor?

    ######### that stupid end game chat. To much toxicity
