Can we please improve the chat interface?

When you're dead the kill dialog superimposes the chat interface. This is such an impediment to discussion, and takes so much entertainment out of the game. Please overlap the chat on top of the kill dialog, or consider moving the kill dialog to the left above the respawn screen. I don't know how you couldn't have anticipated this as poor UX.

Thanks.

    I agree, (this is a PC issue) - the ENORMOUS box showing the star cards of the person that killed you completely covers the chat. I’m sure this was intentional when EA wanted everyone to buy upgrades, but with the new progression system there is no reason for this awful interface to persist.

    Also, why is there always a delay when typing? At least on the PC. I always end up omitting the first character because there seems to be a delay from when the chat interface appears and when characters are inputted.

    Another thing which really irks me is we can't chat after the round ends. You're taking away the opportunity to say "GG", compliment the other team, or talk smack.

    Please improve the social aspect to this game to make it feel less like we're playing with robots.

  • On PC the chatlog always goes back to PopUp setting and I constantly have to change it to Show.

    Of course we wouldn't need the chat log if there was voice in the game. Which there should be considering its 2018...

    I too miss hearing how “Intimately other random players know my mother”. :lol:

    But you’re absolutely right, would be nice to say “GG/Smack talk” between rounds/after games.

    ...or block all incoming comms. IMHO Game players better when hatred hits a firewall ;)

    Sometimes I'll multitask and listen to news/financial markets while slaying my way to the top of SA. I salute you if you can get a convo in during the lobby wait #skillz..
