Voice chat for DBD, improving solo experience

Giving credit of the idea to @Starbricks19 but added a poll for a more objective "counting" of perception.

The voice chat would have an option to mute specific persons in order to avoid breathing, annoying sounds, squirrel voices, etc.

EDIT: PLEASE have console players in consideration (no chat box EVER)

Yes, through all the game, from lobby to post game chat (the killer can't hear it)

    No, never. There is a chat box if you wish to discuss strat before a trial.

    yes, but.. i don't know. i don't like talking to people and i'm shy. maybe in the pre-game lobby yes, because i can write, but otherwise no.

    Which has a countdown if 4 survivors already are in lobby and writing is slower than speaking OBVIOUSLY. BTW, thank you for having consoles in consideration (no chat box EVER)

    Oh God no. Just no.

    Solo is a pain at the moment but proximity voice chat would make it worse. I'm happy in my own little bubble and only want to chat if I'm playing with friends.

    @Starbricks19 Where are you? We need your vote and opinion dude, it was actually a good idea to even ask about it, even if it's a no, we need more people trying to improve the game

    No, solo is fine as it is

    No. I don't want to talk or listen to random people and I'd hate if this was required to play the game properly. I only play SWF & coms with people I know are chill and friendly.

    I'm guessing you didn't read, it would be an OPTION to enter the voice chat, not a must

    I know, still it implies that you have to turn it on to have a "valid experience" and if you don't, you're left out.

  • CarlosyluCarlosylu Member Posts: 2,948

    Ok, I'll give you that one. I was looking at it as an experienced player, but it's true, a new player would think it's a "must do"

    Thanks @Carlosylu for the citation, the idea of a pre match chat is amazing imo. Not breaking atmosphere in game, giving you around 60 sec to organize something, useful and not game braking. Congrats

    For me, i don't like to talk that much, shy too. But just the option for pre-game lobby talk could be fine. I have a PS4 so it can be like....*Day Dreaming*

    Random:"hey...hey Elk wanna party chat..?" Elk:"...." Random:"Hey, you got a mic?" Elk:"..." *🔈🔉🔊🔈Mic symbol goes off* Random:"Hey! you.."*Game starts*

    Personally i would like it not be in-game, for me to have the experience of solitude, unless i want it to not be. However, if it goes in-game, i won't be bugged if i can disable it.

    Voicechat would render numerous perks completely useless and majority would use it for trolling or shittalk

    Because it was basic instinct! Haha*Evil Twirling* Hahaha

  • Jacoby2041Jacoby2041 Member Posts: 843

    Ultimately they probably shouldn't add voice chat this far into it but if they did I'd be okay with it if they fixed the numerous perks that would be rendered basically useless because of it. Such as Bond, Empathy, Aftercare, even killer perks like Knock Out and maybe Third Seal.

    Sorry, no. Voice chat would be awful for DBD.

    Absolutely not.

    I would no longer play the game. The ability to mute doesn’t help, as the idea is killers would be buffed (or survivors nerfed) to compensate for everyone using voice chat. Therefore if you don’t use it, you are going to have a miserable experience. So in that sense, it is forced. Also teammates are likely to not give two shits about you and be annoyed if you have them muted and they are communicating. No way. I honestly think this would be the death sentence for the game. Majority of survivors play solo, and many will be driven away. Not all will just switch to killer, a lot will just leave the game. This will in turn lead to crazy long killer queues, and eventually the game will just die off. Adding voice chat doesn’t gain players, people who want voice chat are already playing SWF. All you do is lose players.

    Not on console

    Its fine 😊

  • No, solo is fine as it is

    I like the way it's on consoles besides that I would only say yes to voice chat for the memes.

    I didn't want to say that "solo is fine as is", but there's no other "No" option, so there you go.

    I don't think this should be an option. It will really take away from the survivor experience in the game.

    Here you are, 4 survivors getting hunted by a serial killer while trying to repair generators to power an exit gate and escape - but now you got walkie-talkies.

    "Claudette this is Jake, I'm almost done with the last gen, how are you holding up?"

    *static noise* "I'm - *heavy panting* he's right behind me!" *screams loudly as audio cuts off*

    "Hatch it is then."

    I mainly play solo and there is ligit no way to communicate to other survivers on console besides group chats, also... WHERE IS THE TEXT BOX? i even have a keyboard plugged into my colsole for chatting in other games, so where the hell is the pre game chat? (p.s. i used to play this game on pc and i KNOW they have one)

  • Nyaren_ChanNyaren_Chan Member Posts: 236

    Never. That's one of the things i like about DBD: you don't have voice chats. I think the pre-game chat is good enough, and how do you wanna have a strategy if you don't know what map you're gonna be one ( except with offerings ) and especially what killer you're gonna be up against ?
