I was really hoping that it was just an oversight and easily fixable when 3.1 came out and for some reason the chat always defaults to the clan chat instead of the way it's always been (at least for a year) to default to the last player you were chatting with (your platoon mate).


It is a HUGE waste of time to get done with a battle with your platoon mate, click chat, wait for it to load (much lag here for some reason), then find your platoon mate again, click their name, wait for the lag, then start to analyze the match.


I can't for the life of me figure out why this was changed or what benefit it was to do this, I mean someone had to mean to do it, so I assume there was some logical reason, but I don't see it.


Have you seen the chart? It's a helluva start
It could be made into a monster, If we all pull together as a team

Yeah this is perhaps one of the most frustrating issues that is unresolved.

I thought the garage-to-chat lag was a function of Metal being on under Settings but it doesn't seem to matter.


Chat defaulting to clan chat is really annoying.

Plus you get a message alert when its a platoon invite. Also freezes while typing and wont unfreeze. You relog in and the convo is gone.

Yep, game freezes when you go to another screen the can't come back without a frozen game. Have to shut it down then reload!  The lag is by far the worst!!! WTH you guys doing besides nothing to fix it?

Absolutely should have been fixed with 3.2


Not noticable when you voice toon, but super frustrating when you're silent tooning and depend on text chat.


Another issue is random red (1) appearing from your platoon mate, without them saying anything, leave the platoon, even when the other person doesnt txt, up pops a (1)

I had a spate of game crashes last week that I suspect are related to chat while in a platoon. Only happened when clicking Chat while platooned.
