Waiting in matchmaking for that timer to finally go away is lame.

 

And when you tab away to go read a quick article or watch a short YouTube video, you find out that you're already in battle and your team is on the other side of the field.

 

When you're platooning with someone and the matchmaking is taking forever, wouldn't it be nice to complain about it without leaving the queue?

 

So, the point is, may you consider enabling chatting while in the queue?

 

Thanks.

This. Chat with everybody in the queue will get messy (volume-wise), but It would be nice to be able to chat with your platoon mate without exiting the queue...

We used to be able to do this in the past, we also had a global chat in game as well.

If you have a such a need for attention that you can't wait 30 sec to 2min in silence, then you should seek help. Also if you don't use a third party app to communicate then why are you platooning in the first place.

I would chat with this guy all the time.  He seems very personable

I'd support this. Not only is it helpful when communicating with a toonmate to exit the queue if you can't be on VC at that moment, it would also be helpful when in queues with a small amount of people. It could be possible to coordinate and pick a Tier for everyone to play at to get matches quicker, especially in Ratings.

You remind me of the unknown 20yr old guy sitting next to me on a recent 3hr flight ... checking his phone every five minutes ... checking messages, checking facebook, checking slack and something else ... despite no signal from cell towers and no wifi ........ the entire duration of the flight .......  checking for a signal, checking for messages.

 

It really put social media addiction in a new light for me and I now honestly fear for humanity.

yes it would be good to chat with your platoonmate. That way you can decide together if the wait has been too long and if someone wants to change tanks. It would also be nice to see the tank selection of your toonmate as well.
