Ok, been having this issue crop up a while, and lived with it, but earlier today I had a situation where I wasn't even part of a team anymore and was still seeing other people's text on the [Team] chat... sooo...

The [Team] chat has issues with not reliably being associated with the team I am currently on (or not on)

I have a separate Team tab set up in my chat window, that I always leave set on [Team] full time.

I often have to re-type my message for it to get through, as the first time I send something with a new team, I get an error message similar to:

[12:09] [System] Cannot find channel "Teamid_Holodeck32724699".

I have to resend the message for it to broadcast.

There are times where I don't get the error message, and whatever I type to [Team], ends up appearing in chat as [Local]. When that happens, all I can do is change the chat destination from [Team] to something else, and then back again.

Please set up [Team] chat, to always check what team I'm actually active on first, before it transmits the text I just typed.

I've had the bug where I continued seeing Team chat after leaving a team, but that has only happened once or twice. It's the chat window automatically defaulting back to Local after leaving a team that bothers me.

When I am using a team channel, I would rather accidentally try sending to a team channel that no longer exists than Local.
When I am using a custom channel, I want it to stay on that channel rather than switching to Local.

By having it automatically change back to Local without any user action, I am much more likely to transmit on the wrong channel, which gets very frustrating.

It should automatically select the channel for whatever team you're on. You should not have to re-select that every time.

And when you leave a team, it should default to Zone chat.

Yeah I've had that happen about 5 times or so this year.
Seams to happen when leaving the team is part of leaving the map.
For example 2 players team up and join an STF, after changing map we are all in the 1 map based team.
After the everyone has left the map I can continue to listen to those 2 players, even though I'm not on their team anymore, though I can't actually respond to them.
Luckily nobody ever said anything bad about me behind my back when it happened.
I'm also pretty sure it doesn't always happen.

I'm just seeing it so frequently because lately I've been playing capture and hold, over and over and over again night after night.

I rarely used team chat before doing so, but it happens pretty regularly for me.
