Made some additions. Heavily inspired by IRC, it would work much in the same way.

The tab with the League of Legends logo would basically be the front splash page with news and patch notes (Much like we saw this weekend). Messages to other players would be in their own tab, much like IRC. Just a very functional and intuitive design based on what many of us use already (IRC).




Secondly, creating an arranged team would create it's own channel, and inviting friends would invite them to the channel, and allow you to start the game from the channel itself. Basically rolling the arranged team feature into the overall chat mechanics to keep it as one fluid design.




I like all the ideas people are coming up with. I may try an incorporate them if I see any that I like.

Marduke: yes! That would be perfect - although that UI looks a lot like BNet
But I definitely agree, having a floating chat is much more annoying, and I think people would talk more if the first screen they saw after logging in were a chat setup and buddy list.

Nice job Marduke.
I will complement your work with right click window.

A commands when you right click on a player name.

* Whisper to
* add to buddy list
* remove from buddy list
* Invite to your clan
* remove from your clan
* invite for your game
* join friend's game
* join friend's room
* add to banlist
* remove from banlist
* open private chat (another channel for your private chat)

And when you click on a group if your friend list will be separated for groups.
* send messenge to this group

2 ways to send whisper:
*/w nick msg then you can be able to read on any room and inside game chat
*right click and open private chat

That's for now.

+1 marduke ps chat windows.

Excellent Marmuke. I agree with your vision completely, pretty much my major gripe is the frontend UI and friends integration.


I think your mockup should get its own thread IMHO.

Marduke's thing, along with the options from kapote's. Also all intigrated into one thing, so we don't have two popups. Finally better in-game with air client chat support.

If it hasn't been mentioned yet the font used in the window when you IM someone is pretty hard to read. Also, I don't think dark blue on a black background was the best color choice.

This thread is epic, I literally want Marduke's pictures to be in the game.
It would be perfect.
