    Chat on Console

    Console players should and need to be able to chat. A lot of issues in both balance and teamwork would be fixed if we could type in chat. For example, currently Vivian is overpowered on console, why, because we can’t communicate with our team to tell them to focus Vivan. Drafting is also very unbalanced because we can’t communicate who we can play, like “I will pick Furia, is that okay?” Something as simple as being able to type in chat, would really improve the console version of Paladins.
    Just because I play on the Nintendo Switch, doesn’t automatically mean I’m bad.

    I use a mic. It's faster than using VGS or typing, both of which I equate to texting while driving. My best games have been with teammates who use mics, or at least can hear me even if they have no mic.

    Communication is everything if we want to move forward. The simplest form is good, but any will do. And if there is a language barrier, figure out who is the leader and follow while knowing your role.
    The way you play the game is the way you live your life.

    I play Paladins: Champions of the Realm on my hardwired and mic'd PlayStation 4.

    We are the "balance".

    Well, that is a good method, but the Switch version doesn’t even have an option to use an mic.

    If we play with real life friends, we also have the option to use a cell phone. I've done that before.

    Sadly, none of my real life friends are into Paladins, though I can’t blame them. I don’t think the implementation of being able to type in chat would hurt anyone though.

    Why? PlayStation 4 supports keyboards. We have a few games where a keyboard is the primary means of communication with players not on our Friend List.

    I haven't tried typing on PS4 yet, mostly because the people i get stuck with are in casual mode just to goof off and i'd get a headache from to much facepalm. But having it is nice, i personally can not stand mics, every time someone is in a match with one i mute them, right away.
    I rather not listen to some speakers screaming in the mic or some wannabe rapper trying their best Slim Shady voice.
