A common complaint among Destruction AllStars players is about voice chat. When you enter a lobby before a match starts, you're automatically placed into a party chat with your teammates and opponents, much to the chagrin of those not in the mood for a chat. However, developer Lucid Games has responded very quickly, and a game update has just been released that remedies the issue.
Patch 1.2.2 is available to download now, coming in at 827.4MB. The studio has provided patch notes over on Twitter:
So, in addition to fixing some crashes and bugs, this update makes it so you won't have to put up with voice chat "by default". We suppose, if you're feeling sociable, you can create a party chat yourself, which seems like a more sensible approach.
Anyway, good on Lucid Games for getting that sorted so fast. It bodes well for the game, which we're sure will see lots of improvements and updates over the weeks and months ahead.
