Hey! You! Retards! The thing you're griping about the most in DAOC - not being able to see multiple channels of chat at the same time..... DID YOU THINK TO TRY RIGHT CLICKING ON THE TABS?! You can select which channels are filtered out, and which aren't. This feature was built in on DAY ONE. You can see group chat, alliance chat, guild chat, chat room chat and officer chat, as well as /say and /tell, all from the same chat tab. WAKE UP! Use the RIGHT MOUSE BUTTON. I.e. Right click on at the top of the chat-window, toggle ON alliance, guild, officer, etc. And you will be able to see and chat in all these forums by typing /as, /g, /gu, /c, /s, /os, etc. And EVEN WITHOUT knowing this, you could have tried the chat tab and seen all communication from all these sources anyways. So, there are 2 methods.

Oops... I had tirangle brackets around GROUP and MAIN, so that will be a little illegible.

Heres the corrections:

I.e. Right click on GROUP at the top of the chat-window,

AND

EVEN WITHOUT knowing this, you could have tried the MAIN chat tab

SWG's got a lot of that. An In-game friends list telling you who's online and not, email, and customizeable text-tabs, and even chat channels you can start up and have your friends in, irrespective of group chats and what-not. I haven't experimented with that because I haven't felt the need for it, but it may come in handy for the neighborhood I live in or something similar to that. It does not have server-to-server email, but the game loads you down with so much to do, if you're serious about getting anywhere you wont have much time for a secondary character, except maybe to raise a ruckus somewhere when your server is down. :D

Dark Age of Camelot is not worth playing anymore especially after the release of TOA. By mythic's second expansion by CD, they have lost many customers due to dissapointment. It seems like they are going to release a myraid of expansions after this one, so it doesn't stop here. Expect to drop more bucks to catch up with 'innovations' in the game in order to stay competitive with other players in RvR. In addition to this, TOA is a PvE fest. If you like spending hours completing quests and killing monsters, then this is the game for you. Mythic's customer service is also a sad case, many people have lost platinums due to the buggy issues with the housing. If you're smart, you will unsubscribe to this game or stay clear of it. There are other MMORPGs that can fairly match your subsciption payment.

Jon, I liked your idea about the physics of communication in game for added realism, but I agree with your thought that the added realism might kill the game play.

I think the Mars/Venus thing is at work here, too. Jane seems typical of most of the RL females I know playing games--interested in the player dynamics--so, of course, communication interfaces would be very important (I share that interest). Just wondering if anyone is familiar with research that says females (RL) and males have different expectations from games with regard to communication and game play. What I remember is that females enjoy the team-building, interpersonal, conversational aspects of the game, while males are more goal focused, will take advantage of situations for their own benefit, and communication is more functional. I'd like to find some references, if anyone knows of any.

Good thread. Thanks.
