The Academy: How Does the Chat System Work?

“How does SWTOR chat work? Chat channels, group, operations chat and lots of tips and tricks to make chat more enjoyable.” Here in the latest episode of The Academy, we can learn more about how the chat system works in SWTOR. We’ve talked at length before at how awesome The Academy videos are for new players and even as refreshers for existing and veteran players. Here’s a great one that goes over all the chat system functions for you. How do whispers work? How can you reply to a whisper? How do you change the channel you are typing in? What chat options are available to you?

There’s more to it than just how to talk to people, or which chats you see. It also talks about ignoring other players, how ignore works, and more. It’s important to note that if you ignore someone, you won’t get grouped up with them in the group finder. And if you’re just now tuning in to The Academy, you will definitely want to check out the episodes before this. They’re all great and they’re relatively short so you can enjoy them in small settings. It’s a great thing to pass on to a newbie player to help them get up to speed on all the basics.

These are all great questions and you can find all the answers here in the latest episode of The Academy.
