i have to agree with them, Channel chat gets bumped off instantly making it impossible to sift through the chat while dancing and helping people :(

I bet this will be Cryptic's reply: It's Working as intended.

[6/24 23:12] [Combat (Self)] Your Thalaron Pulse deals 126254 (48978) Radiation Damage to Tactical Cube. Hehe. Suck it Borg!
[10/8 15:47] [Combat (Self)] Crystalline Entity deals 98082 (147136) Kinetic Damage to you with Warp Core Breach. WUT? I blame Kurland for this and all other problems in STO.

I have Local Turned off on my main chat channel and I still get Emote Spam.

It never shows the emotes.

I'm using the NPC tab as my default while on Risa.
Yeah, I noticed that NPC and Combat have Emotes fully disabled, so (sadly) I'm using that as my 'general chat'.

And this is really, really stupid to have to do this too.

Cryptic? Anything?
"Let's make our DOff UI bigger, clumsier to use, impossible to sort, AND have it show less information in a useable method than we did before!" - Cryptic with STO's 9.5 'crafting upgrade'.

What were you thinking, Cryptic? Seriously. I want to know.

the local/emote chat radius is only fifty feet or so. If it really bugs you that much, don't get that close to the dance floor, and you won't get the "spam"

Emotes used to be sent to the local channel, but they were later given their own channel. The option to disable that channel has been removed in Legacy of Romulus.

Noticed this issue begin as soon as LoR launched, every time I went to a social zone all of my chat tabs would be flooded with emotes from other players, makes reading the things you want to read next to impossible. Can't find an option to disable emotes in the chat windows.

The odd thing is that on some of my older characters, the custom chat tabs created pre-LoR aren't affected by the emote chat spam, only the "Chat" tab and newer tabs and windows. However on my new Romulan character, the emote spam permeates across all chat tabs.

Not sure why emotes aren't tied to the "Local" chat channel, that would be the most sensible, right? Right now though I'm stuck with all the emotes that my poor comp can barely handle. Please fix this soon.

apparently with the LoR launch they did away with the emotes check box in chat options, really bad around the dabo tables also. why should we care if "person x bet 100 credits at dabo" if anything that should be a system message.

Having the same issue. Very annoying, especially on Risa or near dabo tables.


A quick workaround for that is to customize the NPC chat so that it displays the chats that you are interested in - verbalizations of emotes arent displayed there.

But waiting for them to actually fix it.
