Thanks for the feedback and suggestions so far!
Just to touch on notifications for a moment since it's tangentially related to this work.
There's several game-driven indicators that will be able to be used for notifications/messaging stuff, here's an early concept that is still heavily in progress -> https://i.imgur.com/JLUlpIj.png
Couple of things to note:
- At the top of the app frame (the game runs in an app-frame now, making it a lot faster/smoother to play, especially on mobile!) there are icons for messages and alerts
- The game will auto-refresh it's messages and events every few seconds so the data shouldn't be very stale
- Important notifications for your country (market sales, defends, ally defends, etc... probably configurable) will be able to trigger desktop notifications (user opt in per-browser) so if you leave your tab open it should alert you.
- Events are filterable, working on that right now for the main page so this is a WIP :p
I generally agree with Gerdler that it's not much of a help for stonewalling given the current war abilities of players on servers with clans. Hopefully it's a nice quality of life thing though.
Anyway, it seems like folks generally like the information that is there right now, so I'll at least mock that up as phase one.
Once I get the main page finished I'll put together some videos/gifs/screen captures for feedback :)
