In order for alliances to form and war to be one, rulers have to communicate. The chat window in the bottom left of the screen is one of your key tools for interacting with other players (besides invading their territory of course).
There are many different ways to communicate with players via the chat window. The top row of the chat box gives options for viewing different types of chat.
Separately in the very bottom left of the game window you can select how your messages will be broadcast to other players.
The Shield option allows you to safeguard against posting in a specific channel. By setting Shield to 'World' for example, any messages you attempt to send to the World channel will not be sent. This is to help make sure you don’t send those secret plans to all and sundry by accident.
The 'Submit' control is located to the right of the message input box. Selecting this via the mouse, or pressing 'Enter' will send your message.

The control in the bottom right of the chat pane labelled 'Screen' will expand the chat pane to allow you to read more text at a time. Simply click the control again to cycle the available sizes.
The red option with a hand symbol is for reporting abuse received via the chat pane. For more information on this option click here.
Tip: Remember to check what setting your chat is on before hitting 'Submit'! You don’t want to send Alliance plans to the enemy.
Tip: Remember never to give out personal information, and always follow the Rules of Conduct whenever talking to players in game.Back to Top
