With this patch, you can now message friends still in games. It will appear as white text while playing the game. Now I just need to know how to reply message back to friends who are not in game.

Anyone know?

Supposedly a /w <Name> Message works. But I think their name has to be 1 word (no spaces) or else it fails.

My friend has 2 words in his account name, I try /w Word1 Word2 Hi.

Game says, you have no friend named Word1 on your friends list.

Ie, fail.

/w "name" msg

the name has to be in quotes, and it is case sensitive.


This is a very early version of the feature, we will obviously be improving it soon.

a /r feature (just like wc3 and WoW!) that automatically inserts the person who just messaged you would be nice

Hi Lima,

I didn't use quotes and it still tried to send a message to the first word of the name.

Are quotes only required for a person with 2+words in their name?
