So in light of recent events concerning the sponsored streamers, I think now is as good a time as any to really emphasize to SEGA the need for more customizable options when it comes to the chat box. Whether that be including a "streamer" option that blocks all chat entirely, and or options where we can toggle on/off area chat/stamps/, the ability to put oneself in a "Do Not Disturb" state so we do not receive DM's, and or even including a chat filter system similar to BDO where the player can customize their own filter by specifying a keyword they wish to block and once enabled, any and all chat containing said keyword is filtered out and blocked. Even something as simple as being able to right click a name and block directly from chat doesn't yet exist, making blocking RMT spammers needlessly more complicated than in any other modern game and it truly does put on display how archaic the chat system is.
If you all have any more ideas, please feel free to chime in. Sega is clearly listening to us, considering the changes being made to Gigantix, we just need to continuously be loud on the topic. I would like to think that the most recent event was utterly embarrassing and frustrating not only for those streamers, but also for Sega, enough so that they may be more inclined to listen this time around and make the desired changes.
