  • MUST HAVE: Summoner's Note

    With the new generation monsters, especially Azriel, requiring so much coordination and so much teamwork, often under tight timelines, the need for an enhanced ability for the summoner to communicate to everyone in the fight has become essential. I would like to see the addition of a 'Notes' box or editable text area that only the summoner could write in and would remain displayed on the monster page permanently (until changed by the summoner) unlike the regular chat that scrolls away and is gone.

    I've been running several Azriels and it would be infinitely beneficial to be able to get a message out to everyone in the fight such as these:
    'New seige, everyone click this CTA'
    'Healers online, whack away now'
    'Can everyone please go generate 3 clicks'
    'Great job so far but we're falling a little behind on our damage'
    'Have you posted this CTA in all your other monsters'
    'Let's get this Deflection done so we don't forget'
    'Awesome job Agus! I've seen you Deflecting every time it's come up'

    I think this idea has been kicked around by the devs with the weird 'Event' button for Lotus but the need for such a mechanism for use on these new generation monsters has grown exponentially. It's time to get this done, I've watched a half dozen Azriel's (NOT MINE!!!) fail in the last several days. It's a horrible waste of Stamina and Energy for people when that happens and either sours them on the game entirely or at least on the newer content, neither of which the devs want to see I'm sure.
    Chained daily by ♱{CAES}♱ MEV ♱{G۞W}♱ and honestly couldn't care less. I hope the BPs (that I'm not losing) are helping you cling to your High King rank that you obviously don't deserve. Carry on.

    ...landed a CRITICAL HIT on Alpha Bahamut, the Volcanic Dragon hitting them for an UNGODLY amount of Damage[2,599,980]! Alpha Bahamut, the Volcanic Dragon dealt 1 damage.

        I think they ignore the current chat because it's just full of RTFs. If there was a place where there was some information of actual value I believe it would be read/used quite a bit.

              this is something that can easily already be done. each and every facebook user can host an event, invite a couple thousand people, get 300+ that say yes, another 500 that say maybe..and then summon your beasty..use the event "wall" or use Facebook to message all your "guests" that said yes or maybe to their invites..viola, mass communication and coordination
              This is something that we as players should take upon ourselves to do, not expect the DEV's to hold our hands and make everything all better for us. Everyone in here was clamoring for them to give us something hard, something more challenging, and when they do.."waaahhh!!..Find a way to make it easier"
              If oyu don't have the quantity of friends to do this, join a monster hunting group..there are virtually hundred if not thousands of them. If neither of these is an appealing option, than I guess your S.O.L.
              It can't rain all the time
              -I'm a poser legend, but as soon as I win 2000 more battles than I lose I'm applying for the real thing!

                Yeah, let's have more oh-so-elite cliques out there, shall we?

                  yeah notice I said hundreds if not thousands..in a way, excluding the elite groups..you don't have to be a DSC, or a Fury, or whomever, to be in an efficient group of monster hunters that make kills at a nice pace.

                      I have to admit I don't know how Facebook events work but if you need to go to some other page to get the communication that won't help address this need for on-page, real time communication. And no, I'm not going to put a headset on to play an internet game, I'll leave that to other folks.

                      I don't think I was 'complaining' as you characterized my post, I was merely providing a suggestion, you know, in the suggestion forum.

                      It is clear that the intent of these next gen monsters is to require teamwork a la the different classes, etc. I'm simply SUGGESTING that an editable text box for the summoner would be very beneficial to everyone involved in the next gen monster fights and would enhance the overall gaming experience. With respect to server load and other concerns, the alternative now is to spam the chat which certainly consumes more resources than a single field update in the db every couple hours, if ever.

                        Your idea is good. I've also experienced similar problems with my Azriel (we did take it down, however). And yes, I also agree going to another page to co-ordinate with other player in the battle is just not going to work for everyone. And I don't see anything wrong with a player asking for a new feature that he thinks would be useful

                          even if they put this up, would the hitters and fortifiers react to it ?

                              I like this idea. Problem is the Chat thing is (as has been mentioned) full of RTFs and is easy to ignore. I agree they need something to tell people how to coordinate. Maybe have one thing from the summoner be seen and make it very visible or something.

                              As a Healer/Dispeller it is very frustrating to me when people just wail away on the monster and don't factor in the heals. I waste a lot of Energy on stupidity that could be saved if people would cripple and deflect

                              Great idea!
