    Alliance communication system

    Post by Rayjin on Sun Aug 17, 2014 11:24 am

    Hey guys,

    I had a little talk with our Captain, about alternative chat systems for our alliance communication.
    the ingame message system seems to be good for important messages, but for chit chat or a little bit more of conversation its just insufficient.
    the chat in the forum dc's you too fast, so it's not possible to idle and stay for longer times in the chat to catch up on a topic later.

    therefor i'd like to suggest skype or irc chat.

    i assume both systems are known by most of you, if not, google is your friend and wikipedia has all the answers ;P

    anyway, both are client based chats or chat protocolls, so that for irc for example you could use multiclient programs like for example pidgin or specially for irc designed clients like mirc.
    both would allow us to setup a group/channel for all members of the alliance.

    personally i'd prefer skype, since most people i know already use skype anyway and it would just be easier to create a group there, and there is a skype app which allows you to use skype even on mobile devices.

    but in the end i'd be happy with any kind of "advanced" chat system.

    the poll will run for 3 days, thanks for participating =)

    Hi, you already know my vote - skype will be the right pick in my opinion. Most if not all of us have it, most if not all can use it on their phones, tablets etc.
    Even though IRC chat is pretty good as well, perhaps some of the members would have problem setting it up and joining the server (I've seen it many times).
    Anyways, skype group is definately what we need and it will most certainly help us to communicate faster but also get to know each other better as it will be simply easier to chat and exchange information.

    Cheers!

    I just want to air my vote (which I did vote in this) for IRC. I am in the library for internet so actual talking wont work well for me or I can get kicked out. However Maybe both would work. I have Raid call already. It is both Mic communication and type script. But maybe two systems would be good.

    No matter what I would need to have a second page open. I do have a mic and all but using it would mean I would need to exit the building or fin another location just to chat with you guys. However things work best for all of you is mainly all I care about here though.

    it wasn't my intention to have voice conversations over skype.
    we would just use the chat message function, so it shouldn't be a problem for the library Wink
