Random thought inspired by a discussion about an LFG tool in an MMO I don’t even play:
What if our LFG finders had two radio buttons with the options
- Prefer talking
- Prefer silence
Would both see equal use? Or at least sufficient people opting for either option that both would be functional?
Would the social be able to find similarly oriented people and have great conversations as they do the group content, or would it just be full of too many chatterers and not enough listeners?
Would the group content of the talkers slow down because they’re spending additional time conversing, or would it conversely speed up because they’re actually communicating strategies and getting everyone on the same page faster?
Would the silent group gather a disproportionate number of ‘lazy’ players who can’t be arsed talking and would they gel naturally without words into a model of speedrun efficiency or devolve into an uncoordinated uncommunicative mess?
