War chats can be a lot of fun, if the final goal remains just that, having some fun in a game that can grind on you.

My very first, and favorite, war chat was with Helios when I was a Misfit Toy. From the git go, memes were flying and that was 24 hours before war started. Cats were there. Carl was there. Even the parakeets were there.

Everyone remained very respectful despite making me question me defense repeatedly .

There’s no need to question strategies, bash opponents choices, or make claims of luck (or the lack of it). Keep it light. Let players be themselves. Guidelines are great but the chat should remain a relaxed place where people can interact with ease.

Have fun folks:

I am all about the 3:2 life over Mono for war, though I realize it has its uses and sometimes, especially for younger teams, its necessary due to their roster.

When I was War Commander for my alliance (Pre-Battle School where I am War Commander by default lol) I had everyone record and share their hits, but my rule was i never criticized–and still don’t–individual tile moves. It was mainly to look at the team composition and synergy they were using.

Never been in a War Chat and not sure I would like it…I think it is residual from my old skool hard-core raiding days in World of Warcraft where, aside from a random “kek” there was no communication with a pvp foe in the other faction.

Plus…the entire reason i left alliance life, aside from saving mats for events instead of every titan, is I just got tired of the drama, and War Chat seems like a breeding ground for drama, sadly.

That’s fine, your choice and well said

I would disagree a hair with you. I think some of this is fine of truly inquisitive. Like “I wouldn’t have done that. Why did you? Do you see something I don’t see?”

There is a way to do it and a way to not do it.

I agree with the intent of your post. Just like nearly everything, there is a wrong way and a right way.

There’s something to ponder. :relaxed:

Wait, you can chat with people from your opposing team at war?

If you have a chat app(Line or Discord) and the other alliance does as well, yes

Yes, through an external app.

SG doesn’t have a feature to support it, and given the number of stories about people being jerks in war chats, I don’t blame them. That would be one more headache they don’t need.

If you want to see examples of war chat done right, look at some of the threads here labeled “Misfit Toys vs …”

Best advice here

A) Have good folks in your alliance and get rid of bad apples (or bananas for Vikings, evidently)

  1. Use Line or Discord if possible cause you can share easier IMO

III) Have fun and make sure you remember it is a mobile game

Fore) Sandbag as much as possible (still be debated)

E) Puns, movie quotes, and general dad jokes are your best weapons

:beers:

A long time ago we decided to say “opponent”, not “enemy”.

A fun War Banter usually includes useful videos showing attacks (helpfully labeled), memes and silliness, and Respect. Graciousness in defeat as well as cheerfulness in victory.

And lots of bananas. :grin: (Go Northern Vikings!)

We typically have very friendly War chat sprinkled with some War banter.

My favorite “chat-bail” was on our Easter Day Miracle win by 1 point when someone from the other alliance huffed at us that we hit him 6 times and had zero videos of hits against him. He promptly stormed off, and I went back to check for his videos of his 6 hits against us, of which there were none.
Everyone else couldn’t have been more kind, though, and each side shared roughly 85 videos each.

As for me, I always try to record (I’ll rarely forget if I’m attacking first thing in the morning). I share in my victors and my losses. I also add music and will sometimes add personalized songs, videos, or pictures, of which I hope are always taken in good fun. If I know the alliance we’re facing I’ll take it up a notch, as In enjoy a good poke and a riff.

All in all, I enjoy them.

We also, though, had someone pass on War chat due to them saying they’d only had negative experiences.
