In console without mic how can we tell teammates

General Discussion
"We need a tank" ?

It's very confusing the set of instructions..
If I'm a healer and say "Group up" does that mean come to me for healing or does that mean group up?
Also how do I say attack the objective?

Should they make it clearer where if you look at an objective and say "Escort payload" the person who says what they say can also see it as however it is inferred by the group?

Also is there a list on these new changes on ps4 in game? Do they expect consollers to use a pc to keep lookig at patches?
Anytime a group doesn’t join teamchat, i throw. It’s not fair to everyone to have 2-3-4 people out of the loop. I send them a message saying, “Teamchat or i throw.” If they don’t join, i throw. Simple as that.

Every time someone uses throwing as an ultimatum, I report. Don't care what THEY want. As soon as they put that on the table to get what they want, I report them.
On console, it should be automatic since when you buy a console, you get a FREE MICROPHONE.
I think people should be forced into team chat. Much like how Call of Duty used to force people into game chat in Search and Destroy, players should be forced into team chat in Competitive.

It doesn't matter what his rank is. I'm high plat but I haven't played the last 2 seasons because of the Mercy meta. So don't start with "you don't even play comp". You are masters and you say you throw when someone doesn't join team chat.

Sure it's annoying if people don't talk and/or listen. That doesn't give you a reason to throw. Honestly... I would've expected more of a master player.

Maybe the reason people don't come in teamchat is because they think you're toxic from the very beginning. Sending them "teamchat or I throw messages doens't help you. They are probably thinking that you are a Toxic 12 year old widow main. Or is Widow and Hanzo your throw character? If so congrats you could've been grandmaster ir higher.

Grow up dude. Not only for us but for yourself as well. Punishing people because of 1/2 others is kinda sad...
It makes it kinda hard for players to work together even more when someone leaves the voice channel. I play on PS4 and I hate it when I have to send someone a message.

Thank god I got PS message

You just pick one.

If ppl don't want to swicth, telling them will hardly change anything.
PS4 controllers have a built in mic.
Not great but it’s there.

From, a PS4 player

Rank doesn't matter here.
You're an !@# for doing this.
If they can’t already tell without communication, a mic won’t help there, bub.

So you throw because someone doesn't do as you want? How pathetic. Its not fair that you try and sabotage the team.

Lol. It’s not a problem in High Masters/Grandmaster. I thro on my smurf that is in Plat.

you could've been grandmaster ir higher.
I was Top 500 earlier this season. I’m letting myself decay to Diamond.
One, it’s a problem everywhere. Two, that might as well be cheating. You’re going to see your account banned anytime soon based on what you said on these forums. When your banned on console, they ban your IP

Can we somehow perma ban you from the game?

You your self just wrote that you will ruin game for other because they do not want to hear your voice.
I love how almost every post derailed the topic into "omg just use your free microphone" or "I throw when people aren't in voice chat." Yes, you get a free mic with consoles, but no, most people don't use them. Argue about how stupid or not stupid that is somewhere else. It's not what OP was asking.

OP to answer your question, unfortunately there's no specific in-game way of saying you need a tank. Not yet anyway. As for telling people to focus on the payload, you simply have to look at the payload or the objective marker and select "acknowledge" on the communication wheel. To tell someone to come to you for healing, you have to look at that person and say "need healing". On your side it will say "group up", but on their side it will say "Come to me for healing". That only works with a healer selected, so if you're soldier for example, it wouldn't work.

If you want to be able to say attack the objective, etc.. Go to settings and controls. Go all the way down and there are communication shortcuts for the DS4 buttons.
