As a new player trying to read things in the Rookie Help chat, it moves way too fast. Someone posts something, and then it’s off the screen in a few moments. So I try to scroll up to see it, and it keeps bouncing up with every new message, making it more difficult to use than it has to be.
My suggested solution is as follows:
If a user has their chat with the most recent message at the bottom, chat scrolls as normal.
If the user scrolls away from the most recent message, then chat doesn’t scroll without further user input.
If the user returns to the now most recent message, resume autoscroll with new messages to keep current chat visible.
I understand that Eve is about complexity and players learning and exploring and not being handheld, but… fighting the UI should not be considered gameplay, and I sincerely hope that it isn’t considered as such by veterans.
