Community Question: V-Says and Automated Communication

Communication has been an important part of all of our games so far and we've used different approaches over the years. This has included everything from manual v-says (pre-recorded voice clips you can play via keyboard shortcuts) tp fully automated systems that let your team know what you're up to based on your actions and your character's status. With these systems having such a fundamental effect on the way you play the game, and what kind of information is passed along and when, we'd like to know the following from you this week:
