I guess I can get use to having to hit the space bar in order to talk in the chat lot, but I don't like it. But, why did the feel the need to change the behavior of Ctrl+R. If someone sends me a /tell, I don't want to have to type in "/tell Somelongname Andthisothername" to respond, before I am able to use Ctrl+R. This worked just fine in XI. Don't fix break what's not broken.

Also, I miss being able to tab through different chat modes, such as linkshell, party, shouts, etc. Trying to find my linkshell chat I missed while afk through a window full of random messages. Oh, and while we're at it, let me easily toggle the log menu from large and small like I could in XI.

Unfortunately, breaking what wasn't broken seems to be the theme of XIV.

The space bar thing annoys me too. I'm using a gamepad, the game is optimized for gamepad... why make the keyboard operate like I'm not using a gamepad?

Never confuse your inference as the listener for an implication of the speaker.

Good games are subjective like good food is subjective. You're not going to seriously tell me that there's not a psychological basis for why pizza is great and lutefisk is revolting. The thing about subjectivity is that, as subjects go, humans actually have a great deal in common.

If it helps I found just hitting the spacebar and then hitting CTRL+R works. Why we have to hit the spacebar first is puzzling but hey, what are ya gonna do right?

My only complaint thus far is the phasing towards "equal" play. The whining and the nerfing has graduated from particular talent/ability nonsense towards this new complete rewrite on what it means to be "balanced". If anything is going to kill this game its the sad state of people in general wanting things their way and only their way. Keep it up and we'll all be pansies with the same number of petals, thrown in an arena and told to pluck ourselves.

It didn't work that way for me. CTRL+R doesn't respond to the person who last sent me a /tell, it only responds to the last person I sent a /tell to via "/tell Xxxxxxxxxxx Xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx".

My biggest annoyance is that i cant do a full remap, i dont like any of the chat functions, i usually use "\" as my reply to whisper, i dont like spacebar opening chat, i bind all my windows to my mouse, it just seems like apain to have to navigate to everythhing, im slowly getting used ot it.
