In game messaging for Tactics

This was a topic brought up a while ago when we were talking about friends features but its gone now. Who thinks an in game messaging service would be good? Maybe not instant messaging, but almost an email in box sort of thing, This could lead on to alliances with people and make it a bit more competitive. It would be cool to pick someone off the highscores and send them a message. Just something to talk about?

I agree completely. No instant messaging... we don't need it ;) but a mailbox (and maybe an alliance system later) could be nice :)

An alliance system? As in if people raid you, another person can give you free resources or donate units?

just borrowing units could be nice (of course there must be a limit)... for example you can "gain" 1/3 of number of units (if u have 9 slots, u can gain 3 extra ones) for offensive or defensive moments
You can "decide" in advance how many (and which) units you want to attribuate to "alliance defences"
you can dispose of them normally but when someone of the alliance is attacked (or is attacking) he can "pick" of the "common pool"

I can see this whole 'borrowing units' topic turning into a new thread completely as its such a big discussion. I'll open one based on this in a few days :)

yeah I've always thought this is something Tactics needs. where your 'intel' is and you get all the settings and customisation of factions a new messaging box there would be cool. Also I think the highscores table needs changing. It's very slow and not very clear on low ranks. i think it should be made 'scrollable' instead of a click to load 10 approach... new topic?

Interesting topic! I do like the messaging concept a lot though, definitely something I can see on Tactics in the future.
