/leader

i've done a quick forum search and don't think anyone has posted about this, so correct me if i'm wrong.
I wonder if there would be use for a group leader chat. Similar to group chat, except it would be a private channel for all leaders of large groups (5+ members) to communicate via text.

ie. You are the leader of a group in Cryodiil. Once you have other 4 members (5 total, including yourself), and become a large group, you will automatically join the zone leader chat channel and start recieving any comm traffic in the channel.
You can then communicate with the other large group leaders by entering the channel, as any other in the game. /leader for example.

I think this would have a plethora of obvious benefits, as well as possible drawbacks. Though a utility such as this may seem small, it could greatly alter the game experience as we know it.
Discuss? :)

    Cool idea, but in all honesty if your group isn't on teamspeak, your group won't be very successful in cyrodiil. Not sure how you could type in 2 different channels while an organised group bombs you from stealth, you'd be dead before you could type 'inc'.

    His suggestion seems to be to provide a communication channel between other guild leaders, not to communicate within a group.

    Good idea.

    Aren't all solo players the leaders of their own 1 person group? I thought that ESO was considering it this way. I'm not sure how that channel could be only accessible to 5+ players groups.

    Ohhh I think I understand now. Yeah there needs to be a method of communicating to other group leaders without sending tells or all being in the same guild.

    Exactly. This allows a group leader to be on team speak with his group for immediate communication and simply provide a channel for leaders to discuss strategies while avoiding zone chat (until a proper plan is formed).

    The reason I suggest large groups only is so that not "just anyone" can be privy to the leader channel. Also, I suggest the function only exist in cyrodiil.

    Yes please!

    I would actually recommend looking to Planetside 2 on how this works.
    (Bold = ESO translation, lol)
    /s /ss /sq /squadsay
    Sends a text message to your squad. Group
    /p /ps /platoonsay
    Sends a text message to your platoon. Raid
    /o /os /outfitsay
    Sends a text message to your outfit. Guild
    /say
    Sends a text message to the local area around you.
    /re /regionsay Zone
    Sends a text message to all allies in your current region. Your current region is noted on the left side of the main screen above the map.
    /y /yell
    Sends a text message to all players in your current region. Enemies will see this message.
    /t /tell <playername> Whisper
    Sends a direct message to another player. You can see enemy tells.
    /r /reply
    Replies directly to a player that has sent you a tell.
    /l /c /leader
    Send a message to other leaders (CR Cert and need to be squad leader)
    /orders
    Send a message to everyone in your empire on the current continent. (CR Cert and need to be squad leader)


    Command channel there can be unpleasant when things are going bad (most of us have seen our own zonechat at bad times, lol). However it is also the tool that can get a whole faction on its feet again and fight its way out thanks to the coordination it enables the Group(Squad)/Raid(Platoon) leaders.

    I really like the idea but I'd put the minimum group member requirement at 12 instead of 4 otherwise you would have like 30-40 people in the chat room. But that depends on whay you want of course. There should also be an option to leave the chat if you do not want to participate.
