Intelligence Bot For FW Militia Chat

Samara Anninen

I think, it would be nice if there would be a special bot in militia chat notifiyng players about important events connected to FW in real time.
Yes, we already have intelligence window however it's not that fascinating to open it every N minutes/hours to check what is happening at the moment and where. Window is also overloaded by text (wow, so much systems) and it is sometimes hard to find quickly what you need in this mess.
So, the idea is to add automated chatbot (IntelBot) reporting about most important events to militia chat as fast as they happen to every FW militia player who is online at the moment. Events are filtered (only those connected to Caldari-Gallente Zone or only those connected to Amarr-Minmatar warzone according to player's side) and displayed as corresponding NPC Corporation Intelligence messages.
The following events should be reported:
- System is captured/resecured
- System is lost
- System going into vulnerable state
- System going into contested state
- System going into stable state
- Warzone Control Level drops
- Warzone Control Level rises

Possible example of such message:

[12:34:56] State Protectorate Intelligence > System Nennamaila is resecured


[12:34:56] State Protectorate Intelligence > Level 5 Warzone Control established

System names might include link to it's description for fast route plotting.

Any proposals are welcomed Smile

P.S. Oh, and... CCP, please, add to militia chats' MOTD message about spies (like it is made in incursion chats) as a reminder for newbies as they should be careful about what they are saying here.

Edit: List of events in FW window instead of chat spamming.

Why not.
If this will not collide with CCP efforts to fix nullsec issues.

It could be a nice change to see something of real use in militia chat for once.

Came looking for a thread about introducing a chat bot to Militia chat in order to raise the level of discussion in said channels.
Instead found a sensible and reasonable OP in the correct forum.
Leaves confused.

Money at its root is a form of rationing. When the richest 85 people have as much wealth as the poorest 3.5 billion (50% of humanity) it is clear where the source of poverty is.

Do it. It's guarenteed to cause people to start fights.

"Chat bot says GO TO SECTOR 5"

* everyone goes to sector 5 and blows eachother up.

Now as we all know, more explosions are a good thing.

Logical, sensible, reasonable and realistic.

Expect it in 2018.

Ah, I'm so torn. On one hand I see this as a sensible improvement to FW. On the other hand I'm of the opinion that anything important, like intel, that can be handled by players should be. I suppose so long as it's just very basic information and status updates on how your faction is progressing it wouldn't be a problem.

FW players are supposedly working for the NPC's so basic information flow like this seems legit. It matches with the lore.
If it goes further and starts saying 'Roaming gang detected in...' then it's going too far though, but that isn't what's being asked for, so sounds good to me.
