    I am probably missing something here as I am a mobile player , but why can’t Wgt make the country club chat available to all players to use ? Why do we need an outside chat forum , when there is already the cc chat, all it needs is opening up to all users.

      Hi bossbird . Is the CC chat you refer to . A text chat ? Unlike the text chat in multiplayer mobile game mode ?

      I think part of the benefit of the voice chats . Are the notification bell or ringer . Usually on and louder than any WGT notifications . WGT volume and sound settings are usually turned down all the way . On account of that annoying ear  piercing theme song in the game client . Lol .

      The ringers  gets ones attention . That little green icon does not .

    Edit I remember the CC chat in Mobile now . If I remember right . One had to scroll through the entire list of chats . To the bottom . Then post a reply . Then repeat .

      But no . This thread is about the ability to actually notify a player of an invite and on the reverse , a player be able to accept invites . From any player . Whether be CC mate , friend , or not .

    Because outside chat programs like Discord have many more robust features (including voice chat) and are much easier to use while playing a game than WGT's cc chat.

    Discord is by far the best app out there for all games. I have had discord, teamspeak and telegram. All I get is excuses why they won't use it. I setup a facebook page and only 1/2 the club is interested enough to use it.

    If WGT was smart, they would setup a discord on their old servers with all the space they have now from Early Access. Discord is free.

    I don't see this happening, but we can dream.

    .

      Another GR8 suggestion from an experienced long time study of the particulars of this game .

      Who knows why these well thought out , efficient , improvements fall on deaf ears ?

    Self-hosting is not available for Discord.  And even if it were, based on what I've seen, I seriously doubt WGT would have the expertise to maintain it or deal with all the support e-mails they'd get from players having problems with it.

      Good point . Throughout the Flash Beta era . 2007 til the present . They have never wanted a support role . Whether it be discord or some other voice program . I think they would avoid adding programs that would require support .

      We can dream about how we wish the direction of WGT will go . But it is just a dream .
