I don't post on here often, This garbage needs to go !!


Or not!  One of the beneficial side effects is that it cuts down on the text abuse.  No more "Look on my works, ye mighty, and despair" chest thumping.

On the down side, also no more "Good to see you guys again, Fork and Puma, how's tricks?"

Let's see how it works out over the next month or so.  Certainly it focuses you more on the combat and less on the conversation.

  I think it's embarrassing for everyone to see how many times I get killed.   :bolt:

It was good to see my buddy Airjer in lights again,  even though maybe he was not to happy about it.  :D  I think I had 14 and Tyfoo got at least 20.  :rofl

On the next map it just might be the other way around. Glad your back Scotty.

 :salute

As is it is currently implemented is a major detriment to the game.
Adding filtering of types of system messages would be great!

The TAB info is really news (even if it's been around 20 years) I never heard of it either.
And dragging the tabs to allow multiple text windows is cool too.
Can have one tab for each channel or group of channels.
But... system messages still need to allow filtering.

I like it. Somewhat engaging during climbouts, etc.

Which is most likely the benefit. Keeps those with ADD and unfiltered mouths occupied.

Mouse over text window/ right click all tab/ select edit settings. / Uncheck system messages.

Also if you wish you can create a new tab that then has only the system messages. And then if you wish drag the new tab out to make it's own window.

  Yes I disabled system messages but then miss a lot of other important info. still have to wade through much un needed kill info. One thing I was surprised how often players were getting killed, so much for those who say they can't find a fight LOL

The system messages need to have an option to eliminate the running string of who killed who.  Just make that an individual check box.  My vote is those are not helping the game.

I turned kill messages on in the melee arena. They had been turned off do to buffer flooding when we had +400 people in an arena.

My suspension is it will have a significant game play impact.

+400 people?  Is AH getting numbers back up?

There's usually a fight Slate :)  :x

I remember well trying to get on when we had 400+ in one arena back in AHII days. I don't think we ever get close to those numbers these days.  :bhead Although there are a few things I'd like to see changed in the game, I can live with them for the most part. I've tried shutting the SYSTEM MESSAGES off, but like you I need that information to support my countrymen in real time game play and fire out a kudos to other players when I want. Please give us some options to disable this and keep or country system messages. :joystick:

I like it, the downside being, it makes trolling 200 more difficult.
