Avoiding trolling is understandable, but also kind of unavoidable in reality.
why not just copy lightnet? have a global channel, but put a 30 minute timer on saying anything. I find that timer on lightnet forces people to really pick and choose what they want to ‘spend’ their one chance per 30 minutes to speak.
AND/OR? also make it cost credits to speak in the global channel - creating a new money sink(which the game can definitely use) and forcing players to do a cost/benefit analysis before speaking in the channel. I vaguely remember playing one MMO with a global channel that cost money to broadcast on. that would limit people to using the channel for trading/selling/serious group finding.
I don’t think one player would mind putting up with a troll here and there(that they can just IGNORE) if we got a global channel out of it, I am betting most players would agree that a global channel would be more useful than harmful. probably one issue the community would get behind unilaterally unlike the multiboxing issue or the level caps on rk2019(lol)
pretty please reconsider!
