Suggestion Upgraded Discord Bot

So this is a bit of an odd suggestion, but I think it would be really heckin' helpful.

The custom bot in the Loka Discord already is able to track for alliance-specific Conquest fights and ping the appropriate channels. What if we expand on that?

Imagine the bot being able to be customized per Town, allowing leaders to set up pings for specific events such as Radar pings, Fishing Tournaments, Falling Towns, new updates, and maybe more. If the bot was made public, Towns could even use it in their own Discords and ping only members who opt in to certain pings.

Additionally, what if the bot could pull off certain commands? It would be awesome to be able to /find via Discord (especially if that command is upgraded as well), or even larger commands for inviting or kicking players.

What would you like to see added to the bot, and do you think it should be public?

Yeah this is something we have discussed privately in the past and come to the conclusion that it would have an overall negative impact on the server. For similar reason to those posted in the thread koi linked. These kind of pings are too powerful, they ensure the best player at a certain thing on the server will always be on and always win/dominate it, and it discourages people actually playing on the server.

One thing we would consider adding to the bot is when your industries are full, as this does not impact other players and is fairly minor. Other things like /find that you mentioned I could also see us adding.

Fair enough!

Would be awesome to see smaller upgrades, then, in terms of /find or other neato statistics.
