Currently we have two good profile views in the game but kind of disjointed.
(1) We can see an outsider individual player profile by clicking on his name in global chat and “View Profile >> Player Info” screen. In that launched Player Info screen, if one is member of an alliance. then at the bottom there is a separate ALLIANCE box indicating which specific alliance the individual belongs to (i.e. with the logo and name). Good but this does not connect further to anything else from here.
- Now if we indeed further want to view the Alliance details/profile of that individual, then we have to come out of chat and go to the “Alliance” icon at the bottom of the empire home screen. Then we have to manually enter the alliance name that we saw earlier and search for it. And then out of the search results, look for the right name and click “View” button which then launches a different Alliance info screen and then view it. Phew. Painful and time consuming switching back and forth between chat and alliance search windows when checking out multiple players.
We can still have #2 for open searches, but can we also request for getting features of #2 somehow combined into #1.
I mean in the “Player Info” screen where they have already provided a separate box indicating which specific alliance the individual belongs to, they should make it a dynamic link such that when we click on the alliance name or alliance logo there, then it directly launches the standard Alliance info screen. It will be wow !!!
I believe this will be very handy when people are looking for alliances to join or checking out leader board rankings etc. The idea is out there now and up for discussion. All thoughts and suggestions are welcome. Thanks
