Still no cross-faction-communication?

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.

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?
