After the previous chat update in 2020 today our chat gets a major update, pushing it to version 2.0.

The most noticeable change is moving the conversations from the top to the left, for more efficient use of screen space. The conversation list will be hidden automatically on mobile devices to give the chat the whole screen space. While this sounds like a drastic change, the beta test on ChatFighters.com confirmed that we reached our goal, and chatting on mobile does no longer feels cramped.

Even if you are not on a smartphone, the updated chat comes with over 10 brand new features and additions such as: Editing your send the messages, Quote/reply messages, Pinning conversations, Individually mute chats, and much more!

And don't forget to check your new sound preferences in the chat menu if you receive too many or too few notifications for your taste.

Full changelog:

  • Massive overhaul of the mobile layout
  • Overhaul of the general chat layout
  • Updated room list
  • Option to mute individual rooms
  • Option to mute individual private chats
  • Option to change the sound effect
  • Individually choose the sound effects for different types of events
  • Edit sent messages
  • Respond to messages with emoji
  • Quote messages
  • Multi-line input
  • Icon for characters who joined on a mobile device
  • Pin a conversations to the top of the list
  • Ton of bug fixes and minor improvements.

If you notice any bugs, please open a ticket or drop a comment below.

If you could find the generosity in your heart to spare us the knee-jerk "it's changed so I hate now" reactions, we would highly appreciate it. Give it a chance for a few days.

Best Regards,
MeetFighters

Feature request: persistent mutes; per-user, per-channel. E.g. I want to be able to mute person X in the main chatroom, but still allow him to contact me privately and still see his messages in other rooms, and have chat remember this between chat sessions.

It's much more difficult to move from room to room.
Are you able to carry on a conversation with more then one person... Are you able to be in more then one room at a time.
If yes how do you tell if someone has responded to you .

Yes, all of that works of course! Why wouldn't it?
Are you able to just start a private conversation and enter a room, and see what happens - before you start typing a coment? :)

Everytime I leave to checkout a profile it seems to revert back to the meetfighters room even tho I left a different room to check out the profile

The new chat does not work right anymore using safari on an iPad. I can’t see this as more mobile friendly. I messaged Admin with the issues I’m having. Thanks for trying to fix. As of now I can’t tolerate the changes.

Correction. Am using Firefox, not Safari. Never had these issues before. Thank you.
