Noob Question Regarding Local

In a player corp which is at war, if my corp sets the enemy corp to red, do their members get the little red indicator on the local list? Or must I add each and every member of the enemy corp to my own contacts as red to see them in local at a glance?

If you set the corp red all individual members show as red...but that's pretty pointless for you, since there's a separate indicator for targets you're at war with.

In your overview settings, make sure you have 'pilot is at war with you' checked and at the top of the list.
All war targets should show red stars in local chat,

its nothing pointless at all. adding them to your watchlist and the client will send pop-up notification to u when any of the hostile corp member log in/out.

yes, there are plenty of reasons to add wtgt to watchlist, but seeing them in local is NOT a valid one, a correct overview settings would have them flashy red....provided local refresh corectly wich seems random those days
