I dont know if this has been mentioned before, but i think it would be a cool idea that when you open the multiplayer tab you enter in a sort of lobby were you could see every player that is connected, maybe distinguish the ones in games, or there could also be a differentiation between the members and non members, all this besides the games that are waiting for player, this would serve for many purposes, such as messaging online people in the lobby, organizing games, etc

I totally agree...
Probably having all the players could be very difficult but at least knowing who is online (also distinguishing if someone is playing or waiting) from the invite list people would be probably the great improvement ever.
Even if I see by myself that it is a very difficult thing to realize well

Yes, i meant to see who is online, not every player, maybe you could have "friends" that would appear in a different group, or your clan teammates in a the group of you clan, like we've seen in so many places, making it easier to contact online clan members, also with the players you have on the "friends" part maybe you could see them even if they are offline, so that you can leave an inbox to them or something.

By the way, i know you can create a game, invite whoever you want and talk to them, but you wouldnt be able to see if they are online, and thats not the purpose of creating games, and i know that you could join the IRC chat, but the problem with that is that almost nobody that is playing join the chat, this way everyone who connects joins the chat, and if you want you can put your status to "invisible" or something of that sort, so that you are not seen online.

Also, and maybe this is going too far... maybe the games you play opens up in a new tab, and the lobby remains whenever you join a game, as your main page

This lobby would have to be an option under the multiplayer tab (or separate outside of it). You couldn't have it load with your current games I would think as they are totally different content. Not to mention that would slow down normal play having to wait for that to load when all you want to do is take your turn in games.

They could just as easily have it here as another choice similar to the "Forum" except as a "Live chat" link. It would cut down on all the spats in these posts as well. Will give those people somewhere else to go for their daily Troll session

Red Hoard, and how would that be different from the actual chat, the only way people would actually connect is if you incorporate it to the lobby in multiplayer, besides, the whole point of the chat is to invite people to games, organize new ones, settings, see who is connected, perhaps you see someone you like to play is connected but you dont actually have a way of chatting with him, so you talk to him in the lobby, that was just an example

Yes, I'd like to see tabs for the Multiplayer "big tab". However, it would probably be very laggy, owing to the fact that I have played so many people (over 5000) that I can not make games anymore, so therefore it probably would make my Multiplayer tab either laggy or completely worthless...Other than that I think it is a great idea.

Awesome Guy.. manage your invite list and set it to "Manual" so you don't instantly invite everyone you play against. Also use the bulk delete tool and delete your invite list and start anew (This may take awhile if you have 5000) :] Than nothing will stand in your way of making games..

Yes, the thing is I have played so many people, the Internet has to restart whenever I try. Hopefully the new computer coming in soon will be of better use.
