Please post ideas here only pertaining to multiplayer functions (such as a buddy list for example). The title of your post should be a few words that generally describe your idea.

These are the ideas that were on the first CNC VISION site, made up of user submissions and ideas taken from the official forums, credit is given after the idea in parenthesis:

--Having an up front profile severely inhabits some players abilities to join into games. Many people are kicked out or called a newbie for having a bad win to lose ratio. Let it be accessible on an online database, but invisible in the game.

--Having your own logo or sign on your troops instead of a normal Nod, GDI
or Scrin logo?

--Everyone should have Customizable Avatars. And I don't mean stupid uploaded pictures. I mean Full Fledged 3d
Avatar (Preferably a face) in which you can customize the look of. This could represent the Commander as he
fights and maybe even talk! If you Play Eve Online there is a similar avatar system. Please refer to that for examples.
As you win battles you can add more stuff to it.

--Buddy List
-Games automatically divide into respected channels
(2v2 channel, free for all channel)
-Co-op Quickmatch
-Co-op Campaigns (possibly could go down different
paths depending on who wins the battle,if you are playing against another human)
-Show win percentages when you log on in like
Generals has (only maybe restrict to 1v1 games)
-Online Replays
(Opinion made by many forum members)

--10 to 12 players online, but make the
servers only allow low pinged users.

--After choosing the color for your army in the pre-game lobby, that color would be on your
interface. For example, when I choose yellow as my color, my interface would also be yellow.

--Dedicated Servers:
They do not need a host. People would go in, vote on a map, and if everyone is ready, the game can start.

--Lobby Functions:
You should be able to filter servers after server name, game mode, ping, and map. Another thing which
is a must is the ability to choose your own name for your game which you are hosting. It would also be a
new idea if there was a map cycle. So you can create a map cycle with some maps in it. After you are done
with the first round, you come into the match many again so the players can leave the game, or change
their faction or color. If they are done they just click on ready and the next round on the next map
can begin. The map hoster can change the map if they want to.
