How do I chat?

I see no key assignment for chat. Also, I cannot manage to type anything in the post-game windows, even if I can select it.

I see a "short commands" key, but I believe that's for automated call-outs?

Enter for all chat, during game & after.

Shift / enter i believe for team chat

Bonus follow up question: Is there a way to keep the in-game chat open a little longer, or just open? It closes so fast.

Thats a good question. Is there a way to keep to chat window open or control the delay?

Until now, the only way to get the chat window back, is just to start the chat again (press return). If you don´t type anything and hit return again, it send nothing to the chat aka it will close it.

But don´t worry, the devs are aware of that problem, Soon(TM) it may be possible to have the chat opened for a longer time... (well, or maybe not).

I think it's left CTRL + Enter for squad chat as well.

Enter = chat

shift+enter = team chat

ctrl+enter = squad chat

Also, don't hesitate to hop on the official dreadnought discord channel. Note, when you go on the discord channel, go in the "bot-spam" lounge and type !verify.

Do you know many game development crews that would purposely discourage communication in a team based game? I'm not sure why you would expect that here. Ideally we'd have voice chat but many use discord as an alternative.

Also, there is a way to get chat to work in the game lobby. Just open the chat tab, switch between language and back to global. Start and stop a matchmaking search and you should be able to post something in the lobby chat. If your letters are yellow it means you succeeded. However not many people know this awkward route so you may not be able to start any conversations there.
