Would be nice to be able to read chat while you are in a match

wondering why this has not been implemented where we could see chat messages at the top of the screen while in a match the same as you do while you are on the map without having the chat window open

Probably because the battle needs to be unobtrusive in everyway. It is fine to just open the chat window when we need. Otherwise the window may start to look too cluttered.

Lol fair enough, this is why I rarely chat on global… because I play the game a lot xD
