Why does Yell chat really even exist? I mean think about it. Most other MMOs don't allow cross faction chatting and for good reason, and I think Planetside 2 is a splendid example of those reasons. What it primarily boils down to is it promotes toxic behavior. Something that Yell chat is very well known for on Planetside 2 and usually the source of much frustration. I would go as far to say it dissuades new players from sticking around when they see the way people act in Yell chat. There is very few times I can recall the Yell chat being used for anything but: Toxicity Complaining Spam Harassment Name Calling / Flaming Trolling Goading / Baiting Cross-faction play It is never used in a productive or civil manner. Not to mention... why would you ever need to talk to the other faction anyways? What need does the VS, TR, and NC have to talk to one another? They don't and they are at war, which makes Yell chat a pointless feature that is detrimental to everyone's gameplay experience. Before you go off on a rant and defend Yell chat I want you to honestly think to yourself how many times it has been used for anything but what I stated above. I doubt you can come up with a number of times that surpass the times it was used for bad. I been around since the game was in CBT and Yell chat is an awful feature that promotes the worst in the internet and has always been that way. This is about cleaning up the game, improving the community, and improving the quality of the new player experience. Yell chat serves no purpose other than misuse and harm and is a feature that needs to go.
