I know the game isn't out yet so this is just a question not a compliant.

What plans are in the cooker for WAR? Right now I notice that levels aren't viewable from the roster screen, there is no currency to enter transactions for the bank page, and I don't think I saw a place in the character settings for setting your class.

Just curious. Really, really looking forward to this game! =)

The rosters that are offered from other games are based off a XML feed that is offered by the mmo company.  So if WAR offers a roster feed I am sure Guild Portal will be all over it. 

As for other additional features I'm sure once more infomation is available from game side then Guild Portal will add more features.  They have always been pretty good about jumping on new features.

Absolutely right, Alaocia.

If Warhammer makes any information like roster data available, in almost any format that doesn't require a login (because we won't ask you to enter your Warhammer login info for us to establish the connection -- like we'd have to do for the WoW bank, for example), then we'll be all over it.

Since it's Mythic, I have high hopes.  We spoke with a couple of their community people (I remember Sonya for sure) and they said they'd be providing the same kind of data in the same way as they do for DAOC; they were the first to do that, incidentally. 

The only thing I could see getting in the way of them developing that piece would be EA, though for all I know they're totally hands-off.

Will see!

Oh and, who knows if nudging them gently in their forums might help?  *nudge*

Thank you for the update Aaron, it's good to know that things are coming down the pipe! 

With that said, I started using the recruitment feature already available for Warhammer. There are still some classes out there that were removed from the game and there's a missing class (White Lion)

Just providing feedback to get things fixed.

Thanks !

Great topic, look forward to see what we can do with Mythic's xml files.

I will note that in the guild recruiting section at GuildPortal of Warhammer there is no High Elf - White Lion. Got all 3 of the other classes tho!

We thought about using warbd.com data to help populate the roster?

Considering that Mythic so far has been ALL OVER making Warhammers guilds as competitvely awesome in comparison to all other guilds in other games...  I would not put it beyond them to leave out this very nice and helpful feature.  We shall see.

How about careers for characters in guild? Can we get this sooner than release? This should be a simple matter. It is a bit of a challenge maintaining a list of careers for all of my members. 

I know I've personally sent the list to guild portal. Now a days it is public knowledge.
