Exactly! A simple keybind would be awesome (H) toggle on/off. Those that want to see it can keep it on, those that don't can toggle it off. Would affect only the local player.

Yeah, global chat is becoming very annoying. Please allow users to hide it. I understand there's work to be done in order to be 'feature complete' as the devs said but honestly I would consider these types of suggestions to be a form of user experience in itself. We can have MBT's and Helicopters which is all great but there's still a lot of relatively small fixes that would have a huge positive impact on user experience. Global Chat on/off being one of them.

What's the problem with all chat?

I don't mind it.

 

Good for community and keeps the idiots in view of the admins. 

 

Chat should be persistent between rounds for GG conversations and general LOLS, perhaps even globally with tabs for favourite servers. This could be kept inside the console with limited visibility in the HUD for the chat haters.

Yeah I am also not a big fan of All Chat, however it is something that needs customization for each user. Hoping to get these options in the future, exactly how it's implemented, we have discussed various ways. Probably not going the key binding route as there is a limit to how much stuff should be placed on the players keyboard.

I was hoping for a simple key bind (H) to toggle chat on/off. Some people get carried away and the text runs the length of the screen. I would love an option to turn it off entirely. Having the keybind only impacts the user that chooses to use it. Those that want the screen clutter can keep it on.

It is also annoying to constantly see who's joining and disconnecting from the server.

 

Hairless rabbit has disconnected. 

Gonzo has disconnected. 

Billy Noballs has connected. 

TooShortToShoot has disconnected. 

 

That information is superfluous. I understand it being viewable to the server admin(s), but the average player could care less. Please, please add an option to disable (toggle on/off) all chat messages at the client level in the next update

Agreed Protocol.

 

Also much more important I fo that is lacking, is squad leaders being informed when a player leaves and joins the squad, which is much more relevant than the connect/disconnect messages
