No one opts in, it isn't even obvious if anyone else is in the lobby (no indication they have opted in to see the chat room) so no one bothers because they could be the only person in there.
I just had a fun game there was no toxicity, previous to this patch there would prob have been some ggs and talking about the game (its masters so people recognise each other sometimes here at least)
I don't like making the game feel like it was vs and with bots, why was this the default choice instead of a feature you could choose like turning off ingame chat. I know a lot of people don't care (and are often the problem inciting "toxic" chat) but it reduces the multiplayer feel part of MOBA...
edit: I suspect a lot of these people complaining they only see negative interactions are the same people who complain they get banned "for nothing", if you smell crap everywhere its probably on your bootsExternal link →
