Hi, I have been out of the loop on news regarding Hex in the last 3 months. my only inquiry: how goes the progression on guilds? I'd love an update on the progression on that

It will be a while yet, so far as I can tell. They have lots of other things higher on the list.

which is kind of sad... i think socialisation would help the game.

I think guilds could be great if all goes well and all the strongest players don't flock to a handful of exclusive '1337 pvp' guilds which care little for educating the plebs. I want to see a guild system which somehow encourages the best players to pass on their knowledge. Don't ask me how that would work though. ;)

It can be done. Within reason. People that want to learn, can easily find ways to learn. Not many ways to foster this in or out of a guild at this point, since there is no great in-game integration. Our guild mainly achieves this now by inter-guild trading, private strategy guild subforums, and a guild voice-chat server - - more so than chatting or playing in-game.

Has anyone set up private chat channels for their guilds yet? That's a thing now.

Yeah, but its soooooo inconvenient to even look at. You have to go to whisper tab / custom.... Very hard to interchange between it and general/trade if you are trying to be part of the community. You are not even notified when a new message pops up in your custom chat channel.

Yeah, I get that people are putting a lot of effort into running decent guilds even now. Lets hope that however its implemented in game will provide some nice tools for these kinds of educational, communal guilds and not just tools to support competitive teams.

Indeed, the group I play with made a custom channel when that patch dropped and it died almost the same day. It's simply more convenient to use out of game communication than the in game chat currently.

Agreed. I really hope we can get another new updated chat at some point. I really want to be able to customize my tabs, and have more than one channel per tab.
