I have two MP games going. One is in Apr 42 and the other is late Jul 42. I have not had ANY contact w my opponent. Half the fun is smack talking and spreading misinformation. Why is there no simple chat program attached? At least hot link the user name so one can send their opponent email. Grrr. Am I missing something here?

Anyone have an Apr or Jul 42 game going against an unknown opponent? :)

Maybe he doesn't talk English.
It,s worse when the oponent give up the game without saying anything.

I know what you mean. What I like to do is talk to my opponent either here in the forums per PM or on Discord. But ofc for that you need an opponent who actually likes to talk :D

My problem is that there's no way to contact them even if they are the chatty type. Both games were me setting up challenges which were accepted by strangers (we are all war gamers here so strangers is probably far too cold a choice) the same day. Hence my complaint about the absence of an email link or chat function.

Both are quite active so this isn't me looking to hurry an opponent.

Lets face it, the forums infrastructure is rather ancient, and the game could do with a chat function of some type.

I love to chat, it takes some of the tension out of the game, but most I play are in a different time zone and some dont get my sense of humour.

Have you tried to find your opponents as Matrix users?

I haven't. Despite having the game since release I am new to the MP aspect. Slightly more challenging than the AI!
