I propose to have access to specific chat channels outside the game through EvE Gate. Channels such as Corp and Alliance as well as any private or personal channels that a character is using in game. I figure this shouldn't be too hard to implement since the chat is maintained on a separate server from the game itself. (This is why you can lose connection to chat but not to the game) This would be particularly useful for keeping in contact with your alliance and in game friends while away from the game. This would also make EvE Gate useful as right now it is pretty darned useless.

I am sure this is not the first time this has been suggested either.

+1 This would be quite helpful for keeping in touch with people if I can't actually load up the game.

Two things I would suggest though. First, have an icon next to the name of anyone who is chatting through Gate instead of the game.

Second, you should only be able to join Corp, Alliance, and player-made channels that you have already joined from in-game. So, no local (we don't need scripted OOG bots spamming local too) or any other location-based channels, only the channels of your alliance and corp and any player-made chat channels you have already joined atleast once in-game (so you can't write a script to bruteforce connections to every player-made channel in the game). All that really means is that there's no "Search", you can only join channels already on your list.

Yeah I thought about the icon indicating they are not in game but figured it was sort of a given. Something they would likely do anyway if this was implemented.

Yes only chat channels that are currently accessed in game on that character not including region, local and so on. Should only be Alliance, Corp and player made channels that have been joined. Channels like "Help" and whatnot should be fine.

+1 This is a great idea... EvEGate needs love. And this would be love. No homo.

Realy love this idea but for security measure each person using this option should show in eve as logged on with icon with some symbol like chat only.

So i support it but only if there is clear difference to see for all people that shows the person is online in game and also online only in chat.

Channel count should also reflect the numbers. Instead of Corp (10), we'd need Corp (8+2).

This would also do wonders for the supposed EVE Voice OOG integration.

Agreed...I like that idea. And if they can do EvE Voice out of game then why not chat channels too?
