    Default Allow people from opposite factions to send tells to each other

    I think my PVP experience would be greatly enhanced if I could insult people while I fight them.

    Please consider implementing this improvement!

    PvP is supposed to be about shit talk, it's the nature of the culture.

    Not sure what you mean, but totally silent PVP (except for the game sound effects) has just seemed really weird to me from the beginning.

    People who solo like me have extremely little interaction with other players, and don't have any at all with the people we fight. Solo really means "silent, no interaction with other players of any kind" in EQ2 pvp at this time.

    I can understand why they implemented the "no communication between opposing factions" system:

    1. So you can't put a shill toon in zone to tip off your friends - (not a valid reason, I run two comps side by side with two accounts and could easily do this if I wanted)

    2. Roleplay (ok, make it so PVP is totally silent on the roleplay PVP server, but not Nagafen)

    Were there any other reasons for this rule?

    Seriously, I'd like to send non-bannable insult tells to bitches who attack me with a 5 level advantage then run like a little girl when I start owning them. I don't understand why I can't do that.

    i think you should be able to talk, thats why pvp in everquest 1 was so good, because you could communicate.

    the onlything that the language barrier did was make the game a gank fest. the reason eq1 was good for pvp was because being able to communicate in game allowed the players to kinda control the environment and kinda make their own rules. with the language barrier its who can get more people to gank who more.

    also some of the people in other factions are cool it would be nice to chat them up sometimes.

    I really feel like the ability to communicate back and forth, if not trade, would really improve my enjoyment of the game, especially as a soloer.

    I was thinking, maybe just enable tells between opposing factions, so they still couldn't see each others' oocs and shouts?

    fuck fuck fuck fuck FUCK!!!!!!!!!

    Whew, sorry, had to get that out of my system. An EQ2 forum without carebear censorship??? WOOT!!!!!!!

    OK, back on topic.

    OMFG THIS has been one of my sorest points in the game!!!! Too many family members play this game for me to quit, but this is the kind of thing that's banned ALL OTHER Sony products from my home.

    Couldn't have said it better than Pheelin, if we could communicate with the other side there'd be a whole other level to the game.

    SOE, please please PLEASE stop cowering in terror over how fragile, flower-like feelings could be hurt, and give us the damn option to talk to the other side.

    You could make a filter, default on, that blocks cross faction talking, to protect those fragile minds that would just eat a bullet if someone used poo poo language on them, and give the rest of us back our fucking right to suck it up, weather the potential verbal abuse, and do more than hail pets when we see someone we want to communicate with.

    grrrr.

    NO.

    While I can understand the communication thing (a la DAOC) I really enjoyed it in EQ1. Hell some people could be quite cool with you.

    I even remember times when I was a lowbie and made trades for things like batwings to the evils roaming the countryside. They would tell their friends to leave me alone while I ran in to do the trade.

    Things like that were kinda cool and I agree, the trash talk is a must.

    Besides can't you emote to them as it is already? And I imagine people already use 3rd party forms of communication to chat between sides. It really seems like something impossible to totally enforce and its pretty unlikely that people would not learn oppossing languages.
