Any possibility to change current FB chat interface and scoring system to that more like Janes ww2 fighters?

The chat now really bites, is VERY unweidly, one cannot even type a number first...the Janes system of chat was very easy, and fast..very important in combat, especially without any voice comms...Ive heard that Oleg, you used to play Janes, surely yo uremember the chat there, it was great!

The scoring system IMHO needs revamping too...again, to look at Janes, it was a simple team kills/losses tally, and also an individual kills/losses tally...perhpas will curtail greedy kill stealing, plus kill/loss more reflective of skill, than having 300, 1200, or -250 points...

The little victoty markings on the planes for each kill one earned was nice too...anyway to introduce that in FB?

Also, in Janes, when someone damaged a plane enough so it was basically unflyable, or at least a real wreck, one that in real life would have probably been scrapped, the victor was awarded to kill then and there....if the victim kept flying, and someone else actually blasted him to bits, he couldnt "steal the kill"....now, in FB, the guy could be falling to earth with no wings, and some guys puts a few rounds into him as hes falling, and gets the credit fo rthe kill...IMO this is not good...

Are any of these ideas practical to change, can they be done, is there time or willingness to do them, bearing in mind that 1C probably has a lot more going on with PF and BoB...

A suggestion would be, that if at all possible and feastible, to have a questionaire for everyone to suggest better or best features of this, or any other games, that may be included or future games, or adopted to current ones, like FB...I bet if that happened before, we wouldnt have the unweildy chat interface we have now....or maybe even the "point" scoring system

thank you fo ryour time and patientce <S>!

bump - good ideas.

At least for BoB.

Would be nice to not neglect gameplay features - certainly we all want good FM, DM, etc... but it's time to invest in gameplay ideas.

Salute!
