Phrase Chat suggestions

Post by loboLoco » Wed Nov 25, 2015 9:14 am

We can make updates to the Phrase Chat fairly easily, so if you have suggestions, please make them here. However, currently the phrase panels do not scroll, so we are limited to 14 phrases per category. (We are going to investigate adding scrolling, but that adds usability issues so I'm not sure if it's a good solution. Adding another category or two might be better.)

Suggestions for deletions are also welcome, to free up room for additions.

I think there should be a 'Names' tab, because being able to say names was really helpful.

A "reactions" tab would be nice, like "LOL" or "that's awesome/funny/etc"

just something to make it less "let's hunt" with no humor. Or "look at this glitch!"

I agree. We should be able to say names. Also, you should add ranks, like if people want to roleplay. Such as, "I'm the alpha!" or "I'm the beta!" and "I'm the omega!"

Well, it's really misleading to have ranks because there aren't any ranks such as alpha or beta in real life, and Wolfquest is a realistic game. It's a common misconception that wolves have ranks, and that would only feed it. Besides, how do you roleplay in phrase chat?

We do have " Hehehe" and similar things in the Exclamations section. And the "Friends" section has a way to choose another player's name (but it does make sense to change that section's name to "Players."

Ranks do not exist in the world of wild wolves, so they don't exist in WQ.

I'm making the Phrase Chat panel taller, so we can fit a few more phrases in each category, and add one or two new categories if we want. So post your requests!

Oh, i'm sorry. I didn't know that! Haha! I really need to reread this wolf book I have. It has very detailed descriptions of wolf behavior and has beautiful photos. :)

On one game I wanted to say we needed to kill more elk to feed the pups. I don't know if something about thats needed or how you would say it .

Edit: Oh sorry, one more thing. Could we have "town" or something for the village in lost river?

Please do not double post, War-thrush. If you have something to add, edit your previous post instead.

Ok, thanks. I did not know that rule! I'll make sure not to next time.

I haven't played on the new multiplayer yet, but is it possible for there to be a way, after telling another user to "message you on the forums," to specify your username on the board if it differs from the one you use on multiplayer? That might go hand-in-hand with being able to send names specifically, but I figured trying to communicate would get confusing if you had one name on MP and a different one on the forums.

There isn't a way to do that, but I've changed those phrases anyways to be consistent with the new in-game messaging system (since we have an option for doing that in phrase chat)

I noticed there's no option for disabled chat. Is that intentional?

I wonder that we need 'Pups are Hungry!', 'Pups are in danger!', etc.

Pup-related phrases have been added in the latest patch, which should download through your launcher. "Pups are hungry!" is included, and so is "Defend the pups!" :>
