Chat option

Postby Frantic » Thu Dec 01, 2011 12:21 pm

One for the next contest:

I would love to have an option to send messages to opponents in a given game. It doesn't need to be very elaborate; I'm thinking of messages along the lines of 'Good game!' or 'Wow, did you see that at turn xxx?'.

Thanks for the suggestion, I could do IRC. But I would like to see a commentary for a given game.

I'm a programmer; I would enjoy putting something like that into the site. If the code is reused in the next challenge, as I except it will be, I would be prepared to put something like that in.

Regards,

Wim.

Not sure if I want to see "Pwnt! N00b!" after a game where my ronin ants are about to capture a hill for first place when suddenly up pops "Score stabilized." Also, I'm not often around when my game is being run.

pwnd NooB! :lol:

It's not for during a games, but for a discussion afterwards. I'm also seldom around when a game actually occurs, and when I am, all I see is 'Playing a game right now'. Not exactly the kind of suspense I would like to comment on.
