Besides trash-talking and strategic eavesdropping, what other issues have there been?
In a 5v5 match, this isn't an issue since we can fore a single team on each side. The larger matches, however, do need a faction chat channel for the match to be able to coordinate all the teams on each side.
Just imagine how much of a pita it would be to coordinate the various groups if there was no raid or even zone chat in EQ. Hardly anyone would ever would do the raids unless they could pull it off with a single group.
