Chat is the main method for communication between players. It is only available in battles.
The chat has many uses, such as discussing the game, asking questions, coordinating with teammates, and many more. Players are free to talk about anything as much as they want, as long as the conversations do not violate chat rules.
The battle chat is activated by pressing Enter, and is visible in the lower left corner of the screen. Sent messages will be visible to everyone in the battle. In the case of team battles (TDM), the player has the option of either sending a message visible to everyone, or sending a message visible only to his/her team. To switch between these two modes press Tab while the chat window is open. You can also use H to hide the chat and then again H to unhide the chat.
Some staff members might enter a battle from time to time. They will answer players' questions, give advice and make sure the chat is always in order.
