Regarding chat while in PvP.
Voice chat is our single most powerful weapon. It allows for instant changes of target, helping one individual, etc that cannot be done otherwise in PvP. It can also be our biggest hindrance.
OTGers like to gab. Incessantly. Over little to nothing usually.
All too often in OTG PvP, I hear things like, " Oh oh, i’m getting hit. I’m loosing it, gonna die! I’m gonna die! yell of anguish I’m dead!"
The above example is all too common and almost completely useless. We don’t all instantly recognize everyone’s voice. Use of the words “I” “I’m”, etc should be completely banned in PvP chat. Use your character name so someone else hearing what you’re saying can actually do something useful in response to it.
If you are away from the main body of the group, LOCATION is paramount! If you see something happening, DIRECTION from the group is utterly needed.
Comments like this “Bambi has 5 targets incoming from the West” , are what we need to see.
We expect melee types, both tank and dpsers to take damage. They’re front line. It’s up to the healers to watch them and keep them up. But if our support folk in BACK are taking focus fire, we need to hear that in order to STOP that focus fire.
If someone goes down and needs reviving, they need to simply state “Bambi down, SW of main group”
PvP leaders need to stop excessive chatter quickly with “Clear Comms” if we’re in a hostile situation.
