Why does post-game chat even exist?

    Oh BTW, you literally have an option to hide the chat lmao

    I personally wouldn't mind an option in settings to turn off the chat feature until unchecked. Shouldn't be that hard to implement

  • This is exactly what I was talking about.

    More needless abuse directed at me for a simple request.

    If you believe 80% of postgame is "friendly or neutral" you are entirely delusional.

    I shouldn't have checked the post, I said I wouldn't but I knew I would. Human temptation, I suppose.

    Apparently you are incapable of reading a post. I wish you luck in your educational journey.

    it exists to:

    1) ragequit fast as killer before the survs annoy you in the chat

    2) say gg

    3) blame to max toxicity each others with BAD WORDS

    so since we approved 3), why not in game voice chat? or killer chat before starting?

    Imagine how much more toxic this game would be if there wasn't post game chat.

    Its the first and virtually the only way the community can "police" itself from toxic behaviour like face camping, excessive teabagging, picking on new players etc etc (you get the gist.)

    WIthout being able to speak up post game and tell that player the things they did that you didn't like they would just continue to do that to everyone else unchecked.

    The game would be far worse without post game chat imo. At least it makes the other side realise there is a real person playing the game against them.

    All imo.

    The better question is, why doesn’t console have post game chat?

    I actually like having the player interaction. If it's something you don't like, there's nothing saying that you have to participate.

    Because then at the end of every game I would get flamed for not giving the last survivor hatch and so on. :P

    @ABannedCat some leaks are saying that the devs are working on a push-to-talk system between survivors... and they sound legit

    You know, i get that some of you enjoy or don't mind the post game chat, and that's all cool, you all do you, as I always say.

    But do some of you have to be so bloody viscous about voicing your opinion?

    Seriously the attitudes around here are kinda sad to see, especially when you see one or two people you used to respect for being reasonable, turn around and join the "Be harsh because i can" club. Jeez.

    You're talking to another human being who was simply expressing an opinion, and because it didn't match yours you get mean about it. I know internet anonymity gives you some leeway but seriously?

    And i am aware that the OP didn't help themselves in their last post, so this is directed at them too. You can't complain about in game chat harshness and then hop on the bandwagon in here dude. It rather negates your point.

    I am aware that i am an old (ish) dying breed of gamer and i don't suit popular opinion these days, the one where everyone gets to be as mean as they like because "That's the way it is now" But f*ck it, I'll take the risk of the verbal gun being pointed my way and make the effort to briefly implore that you guys treat each other like people instead of contenders in verbal game of whack a mole.

    Maybe it might resonate with at least one person.

    Pixie, the OP is hugely exaggerating, and even those few occasions when someone actually wishes you cancer, can be ignored.

    Unless he's oversensitive. Which he is. But in this case, what he should do is stop being oversensitive.

    The reaction "I'll just shut everything out" is silly, even unhealthy. There is so much fun to be had with chill people in postgame chat. It's like when you decide never to leave your house again, because someone was rude to you once...

    Okay, won't argue that with you exaggeration might be a factor, my opinion might differ somewhat due to some very nasty experiences on ps4, but on the other hand i don't play on pc and cannot comment on the state of things there.

    But whether the OP was right or wrong wasn't my issue and has never really been my issue on these forums. Its simply the fact that some could have just as easily given their opinions without being mean about it.

    It's becomes so commonplace on these forums it troubles me.

    However playing devils advocate and being somewhat old (ish) i can accept that my aversion to this is that I am nice to practically everyone unless real buttons are pushed. Having faced real life nastiness i tend to find myself not wishing to inflict it on others without real due cause.

    Guess I'm old fashioned and about to become obsolete?

    (Edited because I'm tired as f**k and can't type apparently)

    Camp less and post-game chat will improve significantly.

    Become a good killer without baby perks and you will receive praises.

    It happens all the times high ranks...
