Please, please, PLEASE! I don't own a smart phone, and I don't plan on buying one (especially just to use the mobile app). I normally self-filter all the immature and inane chatter in the public channels just to see the zone events, but last weekend things got so amazingly racist, filthy and offensive (even with language filter turned running) on the Byriel server that I couldn't bear to leave 1-29, 30-49, or 50 chat running. There is simply no way for me to see when a zone event happens without. I am fine with missing the opportunity to PUG raids and raid rifts but I would love to see when these events happen so I can participate in this portion of the game.
Can we PLEASE have a channel or set of channels that announce zone events but disallows public input?
Doing this will not necessarily end the use of the Common Chat Channels by other players, rather it will simply give us the option to leave them for a while if we need a break from inane or inappropriate chatter while still being able to enjoy an important aspect of Rift.
This would be great, especially for those zone events you didn't complete on the way to 50.
