  • The All New Alliance Chat Screen!

    I am a software developer m’self, I understand how hard it is to mix functionality with aesthetics. Achieving the best of both worlds is very difficult, however, here is a perfect solution to the known issue of the HELP BUTTON/alliance chat screen.


    Users can now use the ‘alliance chat’ screen to chat AND have a 60% higher ‘help’ assistance rate!

    The help buttons should STAY in the ‘alliance chat’ screen. If they are relocated (moved to a different tab/screen), it will be less convenient for players to visit that tab/screen to ‘help’, therefore players will see a huge decrease in actual ‘help’ given.


    The ‘behind-the-scenes’ functionality of my proposed enhancement will cut down nearly 50% server-load by reducing the number of needed server-calls that are required to maintain the current ‘help’ button feature.


    The right side of the ‘alliance chat’ screen (20% or so) should be a FIFO(first-in first-out) list of the ‘help’ buttons. (It will be displayed like a stack of buttons, much like the ‘Speed Up’ buttons when viewing your building/train/march tabs.)

    This list is independently scrollable from the ‘alliance chat’ portion of the window and has no max on the number of queued ‘help’ buttons.

    Users will request ‘help’ for an item just as they do now, however, a ‘passive notification’ will inform them of the successful request for ‘help’. {Goodbye annoying dialog screen.} [A ‘passive notification’ is what I call the little black transparent alerts that slide up when something completes.] {I personally like these because they are non-obtrusive, you don’t have to do anything to get rid of them, and you can click through them.}

    If ‘help’ has already been requested for an item, it will not be able to be re-posted as it is still in the queue and it will be displayed just as the current ‘10/10, grayed-out-version’ of the button.

    The label of the buttons should be the “help-requesters name” and the “item being ‘helped’”.

    Once a user presses the ‘help’ button, it will gray-out for that user. A ‘passive notification’ is then displayed thanking the user for the ‘help’ and the user getting ‘help’ also receives a ‘passive notification’ (just like it is now.)

    Once an item has received its maximum amount of ‘help’ or has completed building (expired) it is removed from the list.

                I hate to be the only one who says I don't like it but what will keep people from just posting builds and not talking in chat at all.

                I like the idea of getting help out of the chat but would like to make members ask for help and thank for helping themselves. I suggested moving it to the player information screen and replacing the MARCH button with a help button that would go to a screen that would tell you what can be helped and the only way to get to that screen is to be in chat for players to click on your name.

                Your idea is awesome and they need to do something to get the help out of the chat. I am glad they only have it for a limited time the way they have it.

                            Excellent Idea

                            I sure hope they go with this change as the existing help method is so frustrating to have to scroll alll the way back up after each help click
