    A friend and I will usually stand around (er, shoot each other, throw grenades, etc.) at vendors, chatting incessantly about whatever. Once we start chatting, others will usually chime in with questions or just to shoot the ****. The same holds true after an ark fall. To me (on PC) it feels like people are just shy about chatting up strangers. And then there's clans who are all probably on TS3 and the like, who don't need to chat in the open.

    I mean, yes, chat sucks, and that's a big problem for a lot of folks. But I think people would chat more if they saw others around them also chatting.

I talked to one guy by shooting at him to grab attention and commented on his cool outfit robe/gas mask (can I count the forums for social?) The only way I even caught one persons attention was spraying my weapon at them. Kinda sad right?

    Tried talking to people at arkfalls like hey not shoot little skits. Not a single reply.

    Guess really the game has no need for you to talk to people. Everything is very solo-able...Or possibly obvious to a degree. There has been times where I wanted to trade,talk or had questions. Again nothing.

    Even in big events I have been in so far is like just madness everywhere. I have LITERALLY went to a hellbug arkfall with bunch of players shooting hellbugs and could stand there. Just stand there and be fine. In the rare occasions I do get hit or die - Getting or asking for revives is hit or miss so far in my experiences.

    I mean damn dude. I like games when being in a squad or party and interacting with people to get something done.

    Just feels very pointless to talk at all in this game....Is it just me or what, does anyone else feel similar??
    This is because this game is a console game

    This part holds so much truth, though I also think a lot of people sadly don't have keyboards or mics. I lost my mic so I have my keyboard plugged in 24/7. Sometimes I'll randomly say something or say stuff to help others, but most often not met with much in replies sadly .

    There are more than a few pursuits that require teamwork. Finding the help is the hard part, I just spam the chat as often as I can and hope to find social players. That is all you can do at this point or join a clan, which is also hit or miss as they are all small because there hasn't been time to get a large established guild going.

    No one is ever social on the consoles.

    I would totally be more chatty if it weren't so broken. Calling on some stranger to make headshots on a blacklung while I tank him would be a lot easier if he could actually SEE what I had just typed and it was conspicuously displayed.

    This is a console game. We have to deal with this.

    I've met some people type chatting offering help and or advice. However most times when replying something always comes out of nowhere or I happen to be standing in the area that's designated the next roadblock zone and end up get slapped around whilst I go into button panic mode trying to minimise the chat window
