Here are some chat improvements I'd like to see:

  • Enable more lines of chat to show
  • Let them last longer before fading

(like map pings were, its currently really easy to miss chat if you weren't paying attention, set timing/number of lines to match WoT/WoWS)

  • Rather than pgup/pgdn to scroll chat history have a longer chat history that shows when you push ctrl (other WoT/WoWS have scroll wheel to scroll up/down)
  • Turn off Bot chat (please ffs turn off bot chat, its incredibly annoying & dumb)
  • Stop the screen transitions from losing focus on chat box if typing something (at game start/when you die, waiting for respawn & at game end is when you most want to type something, all the screen transitions currently lose focus on the chat & doesn't seem to be recoverable, makes it very frustrating when you're trying to get a time sensitive message across)

(Speaking of screen transitions can the 'Disable Intro permanently by pushing space' be turned off, I've accidentally done it several times & its annoying having to go to Settings to re-enable)

C'est magnifique, mais ce n'est pas le SerB.

I'd like to see a running kill list, too.  Sometimes my wing man dies and I totally don't know.

Atm the game only displays your kills and assists. Overall I like these suggestions, though I don't really mind or care about the bot-chatting. It doesn't really help the immersion, but I find it funny thinking it like they're two terminators attempting to blend in :teethhappy:
This is my IL-2 (t). There are many like it, but this one is mine. :child:

The former 1.9 s chat was better.  May be WG could get back to that chat style.
Was more clear an also easier to look the previous post.

Another thing with the pgup/pgdn is currently to see what was just said you have to pgup then pgdn because the first pgup takes it too far back.

I want the WoT feature where you can hit a button and see the messages that have faded out.

You mean CTRL?

pgup/pgdn do this but in a not very friendly way.
