I’m sure as a Lead or Co-Lead, you have had to cut players for one reason or another. Maybe there were players being rude and disrespectful to other players, maybe they weren’t contributing but asking for cells, or maybe they were simply inactive and abandoned the team. Regardless of the reason, it happens and then you are forced to replace them via the recruiting process.
The problem is, the only live chat in the game is Global Chat (GC). GC is a place most Leads & Co-Leads dread to go. It is filled with players talking about many inappropriate topics not related to the game without any supervision or live moderators to keep the content clean and on track. The moment a serious team is looking to recruit players, they are greeted with harassment and negativity.
In many cases, I have been banned in GC for staying on the topic of the game and attempting to recruit. I don’t know if the reporting is from immature players not liking my recruiting getting in the way of their inappropriate chat or if it is another team (jealous) looking to recruit as well and if I’m reported enough, there is less competition for them to recruit. Regardless of the reason, there should be some sort of a live recruiting chat available, maybe to only Leads or Co-Leads activity recruiting where they are not bothered by the nonsense in regular GC.
Maybe even a Bulletin Board that teams can post what they are looking for and others cannot reply to, only view team info and decide to join. To reduce the amount of posts, there can be an automatic purge on posts after 8-12 hours to ensure only fresh info appears.
If anyone has any other ideas, or would like to build on this idea, please feel free to collaborate via this message.
