So I'm loving this event, and am constantly getting into that ol' arena to duke it out- but after enough battles, it's becoming rather apparent that the system is set to... Well, spam you.

Every time you enter a tournament, you receive a DM which not only takes up space in the inbox (especially when you have 15+ of them, for instance), but becomes rather irritating during site navigation, since you can only dismiss it by going to your inbox. This should be a banner, or announcement, as all we need is a temporary reminder which can, most importantly, be dismissed (similarly to the Rollover Reward notice, for instance). And not clog up our DMs with unnecessary spam.

Touching on that: Challenge DMs. It's one thing to receive them when you're online and active, but they remain in your notifications even if you're away. Again, a simple banner or minor notification would suffice, but they should have some sort of expiry time, where after say, 20 minutes, it auto-deletes. There's no reason for this spam, really, as all it does is tell people something happened that a) ultimately has no effect on them and b) may have happened hours before, and thus they can't do anything about it anyway.

Other than these matters of quality of play/convenience, the event is going amazingly so far, and much love to the devs for all your work!



This suggestion has 675 supports and 12 NO supports.

DEAR GOD YES PLEASE. There is literally 0 reason for there to be a PM. If it's a tournament result either have the link in the banner or we can just go there manually. I don't even read the things I just go to my inbox & straight up delete them.

The next thing that needs to be fixed is the whole "being challenged while offline" bit but that's a thread for a different day.

Yeah the offline challenging is sorta briefly touched on here, but only in regards to notifications. Offline challenges should be removed

Yeah I made a similar post but in the wrong forum xD
Yeah I always get excited thinking I'd be receiving a stud request or a clan message - NOPE! Just LD event notification about tournament results.

Yeah it's getting confusing trying to sift through important messages, and random notifs that are super unnecessary D;

Yes, please.
Actually, even banners bother me. If I'm curious about a challenge or tournament result, I can just have a look at it in the event page. There's no need to notify me about it !

Honestly, It's a No support from me. I delete the messages soon after receiving them, so no space lost, but that's just me

I understand both of your sides!
Personally, I see the main issue as that it shouldn't be necessary to check your inbox and delete things every single time you participate in something, but if it doesn't bother some people, I suppose they're lucky xD
