    Well, it's not always the same person everytime, there's always another, why not fix the problem at its root?

    Because it usually takes two lines of megaphone to sell something like [+14 Twinkling Spirited Terminus Sentinel Twin Swords]

    NA gets same character limit as KR which is extremely unreasonable.
    40 English characters can't express much compared to 40 korean/chinese/japanese characters.

    Abbreviation.

    "S>+14 T/S Term TSwords"
    "S>+14 Twink/Spirit Term TSwords"

    Most players looking for the so-called item will get the shortened forms easily.
    There's really not much reason to use more than one megaphone at a time than to babble nonsense for the whole server to see.

    How about you ignore it?
    What if someone has a lot to sell?

    I don't think the problem is the people who are trying to sell things. I think the problem is the people who spam mega with useless nonsense and drama

    @Mainichi Which why I said nothing crazy 1min-5mins, hell even a 30 second CoolDown would do fine, pre vents someone spamming megaphones endlessly, with the cool down lets other people talk up, if they want to let people know they are hosting something like neam or w.e, or if they want to sell.

    Is PvP still alive? if so am sure a 1min Cooldown per person wouldn't hurt since in freematch there are 12 people.

    Unless everyone on the server blocked that person, it still pushes my megaphone up and out of view

    A GM once told me "If you spent money on it, you're free to do whatever with it"

    I have no clue as I barley play 20min a week haha, I was leaning more towards the quarrels that goes time to time that are quite entertaining.

    I guess i need to be less serious, but I do feel like something needs to be done for that one person that mega spams the server for hours, not letting anyone else talk, impossible to mega you're hosting a raid, trying to get pvp started(I know its dead in na) or just trying to sell something.

    Did they remove the block list limit? cuz if not block becomes useless. Unfortunately on east server we have more trolls than human.

    There is no way they're going to rate limit the rate of people burning NX.

    Rate limiting. That means everyone would have for example 10 messages per minute and they could use them anytime.

    But as said above they won't limit it so easily.

    Another solution could be the predefined text input. (like how the input for the messages works in Dark Souls)

    I actually wouldn't mind if there was no chat in the game at all (maybe except pm) so i couldn't see all those texts from drama kings/queens and self-obsessed people. This is one reason i don't play this game so often.

    "Ignore it" is not a solution when you want to know who is selling or buying and what...

    This is a good idea to mention, I'm all for it. It will help people to properly use megaphones.

    Not a bad idea but a 'bit' too late for it no?
    Well I'm not sure but even when I do login for 30mins-1hour theres like no megas anyway,maybe only a few'EU'.
    Nothing like back in the days when ppl spammed the shet out of it 'that was indeed annoying'.
