As I said before, communication in this game is awful. Sure it great with squading up with friends but talking to randoms is a thing of the past. And the fact that there is no way to effectively communicate with other squads make you feel like a team of 8 teams doing their own thing. There needs to be a method, something like a squad leader channel in the comrose menu to speak with other squads. I would even consider proximity chat as a possibility.
It may not be the greatest with standard servers but with RSP coming, communities will form around servers with like minded individuals who are ptfo oriented where this could really shine. Heck I might even suggest going as far as a chapter week dedicated to Mic use! Yeah, not everyone would use it, and there is always those who blast music or rage but muting is really not that hard.
Might as well give us the option at least so that those who want to use it can use it!
