    The problems with the clan chat

    I was so excited upon seeing that the clan chat is live. Until I used it.

    50 char limit with spaces
    Stupidly large avatars which are only our champions, so many people will have the exact same avatar.
    At most four lines of chat visible at a time

    The only use I see is to communicate to the rest of the clan a discord server, to have a proper chat over there.

    Congrats, devs, you have spent time and money to create the "internet explorer" of chats: only useful to get a better chat elsewhere.

    I wouldn't be so negative about it. I guess that Clan chat was probably designed for short conversations or better just for simple instructions to coordinate clan activities. Like any other thing at start some features may be improved but I definitely see it as a nice addition

    50 chars aren't enough for anything. I wanted to get some opinions about what the heck is the "Top Contributor" and I had to split it in two.

    Could I have written it in a shorter way? E.g. "What is top contributor?" Sure. But the point is that 50 chars with spaces has never been enough for any kind of communication. Not for SMS, not for Twitter, not for anything. It was probably enough for Morse code, and that's it.

    Honestly, whoever proposed this limit, really dropped the ball. Especially since, with the large (albeit useless) avatar, the limit could easily be twice as big and the text would fit in the rectangle without any changes in the design.

    These are base design problems, they aren't things that one can hope that will be fixed in the future.

    Good question--what is top contributor? What does that even mean?

    Heck if I know. For the Clan that I am in, the Iron Clan, everyone has 1 contribution currently (which doesn't make much sense, since it is supposed to be reset on Sunday, but anyway). One guy inexplicably has two contributions, and he is the top contributor.

    By the way, a couple of weeks back, a guy had around 266 contributions.

    Best I can figure out is who checks in the most... if everyone checks in equally, then it's whoever did it first OR.. the username that's first alphabetically.

    I've noticed that the word "MEXICO" is censored in my clan chat. Why is that?

    hey guys,

    good job with the clan chat feature three things have to change imo:

    1. letter restriction is really bad, we need more letters
    2. the chat has to be visible from the main cosmos screen and not only from the clan section
    3. the censorship is really ******* ridiculous

    aside that i like it

    cheers


    don't be a mofo and join the mofos.

    if you are interested in joining one of the top 5 clans in lotb, contact me and we can start the negotiation. we are full atm but we can put you on the mofo list if you like.
