With the announcement of Version 5 and the likelihood that we'll be having people return to the game, or new players joining the team, I'd like to take a moment to cover proper etiquette with regard to Team Chat.
Remember that Team Chat can be viewed by anyone in the Den Team, even if they are not online at the time that something is spoken. As such, please be careful not to put plot spoilers into Team Chat. This includes adding a spoilers warning before saying it. We really can't just choose not to see the chat, so a spoiler warning does not really work here either.
So what is a spoiler?
Here are some examples of spoilers:
-Revealing that Character X is actually Character Y in disguise.
-Revealing that Character X becomes something else, or gains some kind of special power.
-Revealing that Location X is really Location Y.
Use some better judgement here, and whenever possible try to refer to the version number rather than the specific world you are in. Version 2 and Version 4 please be especially careful about how you describe the maps you are on. Rule of thumb, if the information isn't obvious, don't reveal it.
Example: The 5 Version 1 continents are not spoilers. They are clearly visible at the train station, the NPC's all talk about them. Everyone knows which races live on which V1 areas.
Version 2 has a really big reveal, and talking about that reveal is a spoiler.
Likewise, Version 4 has you visiting locations that you wouldn't expect to be able to visit, and stating what those locations are could be a spoiler.
If discussing story with friends, please use Party or Friend chat rather than Team Chat. If any questions, please reach out to me.
Thank you for maintaining the mystery of DQX for everyone on the team.
