    So, we have Party, we have Guild, we have Alliance channels, but no Factions channels. But never fear, I am here with a suggestion.

    Both clients have a ingame chatroom like 'conferences' which we could use to chat to each other, everyone can be in it, it can be password protected and its very useful indeed. Below are screenshots of how one would go about it in either client. It is (obviously) much more useful in KR than 2D, but both are very well done, though 3Ds client for the conference was much better.

    The /help in KR will give you all the information you need to do the commands in the client (/c [channelname] [text] will allow you to type in your channel) and 2Ds is pretty straightforward. :)

    Chats are weak. I don't like it. The CL can send out faction messages several times a day. Thats plenty really..

    Well, in battle that can be a big issue. Plus there is a delay timer, and if theres a massive attack/movement going on like there hopefully will be in the upcoming events, a realtime solution really is needed.

    There isn't a delay timer.

    :thumbup: Well Magnus I play on the KR client and use guild chat often so I think having a factions channel it's not a bad idea at all. But I also use ventrilo and I would have to say I prefer it because it's faster. The channel would be a great addition for people that are not in a guild so they can still stay up to date with those in their same faction but the danger of having spy's in there would be higher I think.;) I'm not paranoid just practical now if I could just figure out how to setup macros in KR the macro box needs some attention devs I liked the drop down menus better I made fewer mistakes with it . This is not a flame I like KR just hate the instruction manual. :thumbup:
