I understand what Empire was trying to accomplish by limiting the chat limits, however, I think you have cut us (the players) off from one another who REALLY REALLY want to have the connection! Wouldn't it be possible to keep the Global Chat and just let people opt out of it if it isn't what they want? I have never felt so isolated in all my life from the people in the game! I am a supporter, so I usually play in Utopia, however, I always counted on being connected to the entire community of Empire via the Global Chat! Please give us our friends back!
