Cross faction tells would be a bad thing for team based open world pvp. As if we had that though...

The problem with ignore is that it thins the pool for potential flashpoint/warzone mates. Just because someone gets stupid in general chat when he gets bored doesn't mean he isn't worth running content with.

/say is cross-faction.

Ignore in TOR is pathetic honestly. I mean c'mon only 128 slots is nothing. I have to deal with cycling ignores and re-ignoring hourly when I'm on. We really need at least 1000 for it to not be a joke.

Exactly why do you need cross-faction tells?

Please, never allow cross-faction public chat. Tells, sure. Public chat, please no. Except for /say which is already allowed of course.
Judgments are often inaccurate because the brain relies on cognitive biases over hard evidence. Cognitive bias is the tendency to make irrational judgments in consistent patterns. Researchers have found that cognitive bias wreaks havoc by forcing people to make poor, irrational judgments.

No thanks. There're already enough dip ***** clogging up gen. chat and whispering nonsense from same factions.

RP with /say or talk to them via the force.

/say is not enough for RP.

In dept RP storylines need to be coordinated OOC as well as RP-PvP in some case. Thats why we don't see much of it here, areas and communications are too restrictive. Even custom emotes are blocked.

Cross-faction custom channels and tells would be a great asset to the game and make things a lot easier for those who want to run cross-faction stories and events.

Open all channels to all factions except PvP and General and give the user the option to activate or not cross-faction communications.

As far as I've tested it /say works in WZ but not in open world.

As a side note, DCU had 'versus' chat and that worked fine. Ok, there was some baiting, flaming and unpleasantness - but how is that any way different to single-faction general chat?
