    I have a small suggestion for TEAM Eggwars. I have noticed that we are not allowed to chat before we drop unto the map. EVEN in between the team in a team game where we are grouped with randoms. Chatting will allow us to communicate with the strangers in the first 15 seconds to quickly share game plans or strategy.

    Without the chat, let's say for Rome, Aztec, or Teaparty, where you are most likely to be placed in a team with randoms. The team would not work as a team but instead work individually until randoms just happen to crosspaths with you. Enabling chat would allow the team to at least have a little idea of what other people are doing.

    Just a little suggestion.

    Yeah, I support this I want to tell my teammates hey guys I'm rushing, or I got obby, or I could use the chat to make a strat or use I strat, w/o this my teammates hog the gold gen and the iron gen, and we will be less organized, and no one will rush to mid. It makes the game easier in my opinion

    I agree cuz sometimes, my team literally just trying to build to our next door neighbors, and then we get eliminated.
    Being able to talk before game might help us to work more like a team.

    As @Dotsy said, I'm pretty sure the reason they don't allow chat is because players were always asking for OP and that got really annoying. I bet you loads of people would complain if they enabled chat again.

    I think chat should only be enabled for donators.

    That's why I only play with friends. Can't you also just chat with your team as soon as you hit the ground?

    It's only a few seconds of " no chatting time". If the feature to disable chat before the game starts would disappear, chat will be spammed with (mostly) useless things.

    If you guys don't use chat anyway, why would you be annoyed by
    Chatting after dropping might take away a good 3-5 seconds from the start and lose you your entry iron ingots just because you want to work as a team. It's as if players that are trying to coordinate a team is getting punished for putting in the extra 3-5 seconds to tell people what they are doing.

    This would be a lovely feature, but I don't see it being necessary.

    I get this, but I can see the value of being able to chat with teammates. There's no reason chat should be enabled for solo games. Then again, chat is still enabled for solo survival games for this exact reason, which was suggested to be turned off... :(

    It's for the people that actually want to work as a team and want to tell people to have an idea of what I am doing in the first minute. I don't hog gens, and I move immediately as soon as we drop, I have no time to stop and chat. Maybe the gen hogs have more time to chat than Moneybags rushers.

    https://www.cubecraft.net/threads/team-chat-in-eggwars-before-dropping.160005/#post-647839

    It's not game changing, only cause a little discomfort or it could save some frustration during the game such as 2 or 3 people building a rush bridge when that could be avoided if someone said "I'm building to mid" before dropping.

    Instead of doing this why not just enable it? If the chat is enabled again, actual strategy chats happen, instead of just one person talking. I know it is a short 15 seconds, but in the 15 seconds, at least 2/3 of the players can tell what they will be doing in the first 5 minutes of the game. Other players won't bother chatting because no one else is talking, and when the see someone message, they might get the idea and tell what they are doing.

    I don't hog gens, and I move immediately as soon as we drop, I have no time to stop and chat. Maybe the gen hogs have more time to chat than Moneybags rushers. It's as if the game punishes mid/island rushers just because they want to coordinate the team.
