      Unhappy The new and improved Monster mayhem

      I really do not want to start trouble, but there are a couple of things with the "improved" Monster Mayhem that either have been ignored (Again) or need to be fixed.

      Ignored: The badges are still, after all this time and countless requests, still not fixed.

      Fixed: The new Monster Chat is a good idea, but you forgot to add a favorites option. Mayhem is VERY time sensitive, so the favorites shortcut is VITAL. Also, I STRONGLY suggest you add 2 more items:

      Is anyone new?
      I am new.
      @Sparck, what do you think?

      I second all of this, but ESPECIALLY the last point! Having those two dialogue options would make it a LOT more bearable for both menu chat and text chat players alike. The barrier to communication is too high for good collaboration on this event. I lost a match that could've been won a few hours ago because of this barrier.

      Cool Re: The new and improved Monster mayhem

      Based on a recent PM I got from a dear friend @Arwen Mythweaver, I wanted to expand on one of the issues in the original post.
      @Sparck and @Eric Stormbringer, we would really value your opinion and input

      On the chat issue, I mentioned that an addition of "Is anyone new?" or "I am new" would be a big help. This is very true, but it needs to go beyond that.

      I am not pointing fingers, but in the hurry to type fast, many players attempts to guide new players sound pushy and bossy AND costs more time loss. The new chat shortcuts are great, but a few more additions that would save time AND make sure the message does not sound mean:

      Remember, time is the enemy!
      Please watch the timer at the top and be fast
      oops! Ok, adjust and adapt
      Focus on weakest monsters first
      Watch the map to see who is where
      On the map, you are the yellow arrow
      Please get to next battle fast
      Be ready at Spiral
      If you are new, you can stick with me
      Always remember, be a team and communicate
      Relax and focus, we can win!

      These are just a few examples, I am sure over time there will be others that come up. For those of us who want to make the Event a positive and enjoyable thing for new players, this line of thinking would be a huge help to everyone in the event.

      Re: The new and improved Monster mayhem

      Couldn't agree more!

      To add to that list, there's a few that are noticeably leftover from when they asked:
      Almost done (almost finished or whatever is appropriate)
      Found time
      Pick <form>
      We need a <healer, tank, hitter>
      That spell is too long
      3v2
      2v1

      Instead I have to go to the menu and select "Two people per battle this wave" or "Three people per battle this wave" which is a heck of a lot longer. Also, having shortcuts would really do some wonders here. "Found time" doesn't work but "We found time/clock" will.

      I think really the issue is lessened if we didn't have to select "Beastmoon Hunt" to see all the categories. Maybe just keep the categories in the first menu or add "Time", "Strategy", and "Battle" sections to house the subcategories

      Re: The new and improved Monster mayhem

      I tried Beastmoon Hunt years ago, to try it when it first came out and it had many bugs and lags in gameplay.

      And the other players that had joined me in a 4x4 fight. After 2 run-heal-returns of other players; with our team being hammered, one by one, the others left and failed to return.

      I tried typing words like:

      1) HELLO?
      2) IS ANYONE THERE?
      3) WHERE IS EVERYONE/ANYONE?

      At the time (I don't remember the day of year), I wasted crowns buying minions that were one hit removed and I eventually gave up on the whole section of W101.

      Good luck for those that can successfully play through Beastmoon Hunt, and I will leave it at that.

      Both hunt and mayhem have come a long way since then. Yes, there are still some issues, but in the whole, it is much better.
