Global chat?

Postby lamefun » Tue Sep 15, 2015 5:48 pm UTC

Like in Wesnoth:

Blue players are players in the currently selected game, white players are players who have not joined any game, red players are players who are currently playing a game. You can eg. send a private message to a player who's playing another game. Might help people find someone to play with (i.e. some people might start the game up, see empty servers and quit immediately, with the global chat they have a greater chance to meet other players even if they haven't joined a server yet).

It's a good idea, but maybe people using IRC will see this as a doubloon.

We could make a nice UI for IRC and have everyone join #unvanquished-ingame by default. Our engine already supports it.

Why not simply #unvanquished?

It's a good idea. You can also let people choose channels including a developers channel. It'd increase communication.

I like the idea of just integrating IRC into the game. IRC is a tool that is severely underrated.

@lamefun It would mean spam for #unvanquished

Spam is better than silence.

IRC is for terrorists and hackers, it should be banned and replaced with Google+, Facebook and Skype.
