The first war chat I was involved in ended badly, but it wasn’t due to the chat during the war. The conversations were fun and jovial, even after we won.
My leader at the time was so enamoured with some members of the opposition, they now had dreams of being top 100 Keep in mind, WE had just won the war , merger proposed, no discussion … the beginning of the end.
Well if there was a cataclysm and I was the only player left…I may have a shot @Rigs, barring that maybe God having pity on the poor, slow witted, fool that I am and somehow I accidentally end up there. Wondering the next day who hacked my account and used my hero’s?
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.
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.
