It is, at least to me, virtually IMPOSSIBLE to employ chat at ALL, due to the massive amounts of currency spamming that is happening.
It doesn't matter where I am, in spacedock or sector space, it is virtually nonstop.
I also can't seem to find any chat filters to handle this, even if poorly: perhaps I'm still too new (Lt 2), but I would have thought that the interface for chat filters would be a bit more readily apparent.
What controls are there, if any, to try and weed out this garbage? Anyone? I've thoroughly enjoyed the game so far, and it has performed very well - my only complaint is the complete and total lack of chat.
It hasn't been too bad for me but perhaps im on when gold sellers sleep, anyway if you think this is bad you should have seen ****... oh the nightmares still in my mind, it was seriously, non stop and i mean non stop gold spams, every micro second a new spammer would post in the general chat.
I have played many an MMO, and gold sellers have never been as big a nuisance as they are in this game. Zone chat, whispers, my inbox . . . it's crazy. They really do make in-game communication very difficult.
Ya wahts the deal with these guys? Are they even for real? I mean how is it that they have all these credits to sale? I find it more likely they're just a scam you send them your money and they just kind of keep it.
