In WvW over the past couple of days I've noticed that players are annoucing stuff in chat to help us do better.
This is great and very necessary
However some of the messages are not very clear
So it would be more helpful to use a litle more detail but still keep the message brief
A "garrison under attack" message is fine but doesn't tell us any more than we can gain by a quick look at our map.
"20 reds w 2 treb and ram @Garrison outer west gate 20% 10 def need supplies / siege (arrw cart etc ) "
tells us alot more...yes I know this is evil OOC txt speak but its the kind of quick info that helps group leaders and individuals decide where to go and what to bring or whether you will arrive to find the keep lord has already fallen.
Also just as important are enemy movements
"5 reds heading Arahs" will let players in the area know to either leave or lend support
or supply requirements and siege
"needs supplies" does not help
"need supplies redvale 2 repair gate 10%" or "needs more supplies for oil bluebriar" tells everyone what, where, and why
Even if you are dead, you can still send a message in /t
If you are thinking of putting up siege stuff, tell people so they can help with supplies or adivse if its not needed.
