Why would any person who wants to win a team game, want to ignore communication with his/her teammates?

Why would anyone playing a team game on this setting not simply use other methods of communication such a pms? To the OP, since your idea appears to be that games of this type would ban communication between players, even if they are on the same team, how would you recommend enforcing the rules against team mates who pm/email/talk to each other?

Wouldn't be too bad if it were 'disable open chat' where it just disabled chat from opposing players and kept the team chat in team games. it wouldn't matter for standard games.

no, i don't think he is suggesting a rule change, just an option that closes the chat box, so no enforcing necessary. I would be ok with this as long as team chat remained.

I think the OP is suggesting that people will want to do team games without conversing with their teammate (?) and not having a game chat makes this easier to do.

LOL, yeah, I was purposely ignoring that....dang it Max!....lol

Minus the team portion, it is ok. It would be ludicrous to assume that a team game would be played with no chat. Even if this option somehow passes with the teamchat removed, they will still likely chat using some of the previously mentioned options. Great for standard games, and speed games. If it is not an option to allow teamchat while regular chat is disabled, then I would probably just set it as an option for standard games only.

But wouldn't those people presumably want their opponents to be held to the same restriction? And won't some people want to gain an advantage by communicating with their teammates anyway? An actual ban between players would be like Secret Diplomacy, easy to circumvent, impossible to enforce, only more so...

lol, yes, and that is what I said earlier, besides, it would only be an added setting, no new rule would be created for that setting.

All this will cause, in my opinion, is people trying harder for Diplomacy.

Team have to be able to talk to each other.

Maybe in games like Assassin or Terminator or Fog of War games where information is at a premium a 'filter' could be used. By filter I mean certain words (like the names of territories) would never show up in text chats, or numbers.

This might have been off on a tangent.

Please don't take the human aspect of verbal warfare out of this game. No talk would take us even further away from the physical board game around the kitchen table we grew up on.

That might have just aged me.

Peace

I'm on board 100% for this. I hate getting jammed midway through the game by someone who feels like they get everyone to attack me simply because I have a bonus region. "That Guy" just ends up giving the game away to some major anyway. Disabling the chat would keep my blood pressure down considerably

Gets my vote, I wish there was an option to remove chat.

I've not played a lot on this site but played a lot on others.
Pretty much all my games I've played here have ended up with someone having a paddy and spoiling the game through chat.
Either someone anouncing they'll spoil your game, giving away your army locations or instagating a 3vs1 becuase I'm doing better than they are.

Personally I cannot stand getting the upper hand in a game then having everyone turn on me, it ruins the game, it lacks stratergy.
I'm not interested in alliances, truces and small talk.
Some people might like diplomacy, fine, they can have the option to keep the chat.

Yes comms will still happen via PMs, but if there was a 'disable chat' function I'd use it all the time.
