@Hekata I think this was asked for a while ago, and by a while i'm talking almost 12mths ago! There was quite a discussion around it but it looks like they've gone ahead! I would assume/hope they will give the option to opt into this feature :)

Kind Regards

Herodite.

Anyone can currently type "/who" in chat for exactly the same result so it just makes life a little easier for what is already available.
Well in general I don't understand why people want to know who's online. This is a game and not the office where your boss wants to be sure you're at your working station. And as you said his makes it easier which is a big difference for me. And I'm sure not everyone knows about the /who thing.

@Herodite I do hope the option to opt out is there :)
A lot of things have been asked by players and I just find it disappointing that we get one of the rather useless suggestions and not those that would actually improve the game. For instance players have been be asking for a scout notification pretty much since I've started playing (4 years ago I think...) and still nothing....

For those who can't make out the, what, 4 pixel detail in that graphic, I assume this is referring to the little smudge at the lower right corner of the player portrait...

Any idea where it was "asked for"? I love to see exactly what was asked and why. EDIT: I've checked Ideas and Suggestions and could not identify a thread with this topic. If I get time I'll check the US forums and see if it came up there.

I can convert something I never have enough of into something I never have enough off. Makes perfect sense to me.

If the graphic is correct they are at least not taking up the building, relics (aka pet food), and time boost slots, so it won't be at the expense of the things we actually want. I'm confused by the recipes though. 5k SF to craft 8 CCs for 10 vision vapour or 1 CC for 40 VV? Or is it the VV that's the main point of the 2nd one?

This is a welcome addition.
nothing to complain as the recipes are introduced in slots that are not for buildings or time instants.

You might not represent a majority, silent or not, or a minority, vocal or not, of other players.

A number of players who climb the Spire weekly find they have more Spell Fragments than they can get rid of. I'm sitting on over 200k personally.
A number of players who participate in Events find they have more Buildings in their inventory than they can use in their city, which they can convert into Spell Fragments as a last resort. My summoning tab runs to 17 pages.

I for one would love to have more CC, and be able to craft more (both the new CC recipes and additional things with the new CCs) and thus able to make more VV, and thus increase the frequency of possibly receiving more sweet, sweet diamonds. I'll be able to get more bang for my Pet Food buck after feeding my Red Panda Master. Especially during Fellowship Adventures.

What might be worrying to me is the slots the crafting of CC appears in. I see it in two places in the pic Jackluyt has posted. I don’t care much about the slot the kps usually appear in, but I am not thrilled that my chance on crafting a tool or a coin refill has now been reduced.

As with regards to seeing who is online, “/who” worked very well, both app and browzer. Is this going to disappear? Personally I don’t see a need to visualise it in a table.

I think you had a typo. You meant to say "you may represent a silent majority that is not vocal but not a vocal minority":D
The truth is I don't claim to represent anyone other than the few players I have contact with, sometimes.

Don´t find it a big deal. /who worked fine for me when I needed it (usually only during FAs anyway) as long as it doesn´t take up any important space, I see no reason why not to have it.

Awesome news! Now I personally wish we could increase the recipe by a factor of 10 or better 1000, but heck anything I can do with my 1 mio SF is welcome no matter what it is :D
