[Unexpected] Intel Map does not provide an activity feed free of alerts.
In 2015, @ace (John Hanke) said "Ack" on G+ to the issue that the Intel map did not provide an activity feed for a given area, free of an Agent's personal alerts.
If I look at Easter Island, an area devoid of active play, I have to scroll back through thirty days of personal attacks to realize there's no local activity. This should not be the situation.
Intel has 3 tabs for COMM.
Alerts - My personal alerts.
Faction - Faction communications in the displayed area.
All - Activity in the displayed area, plus my personal alerts.
The expectation is that COMM is similar to the in-game COMM.
- Activity - Actual activity in the given area.
- Faction Chat - Discussions between faction specific players.
- Cross-Faction Chat - Discussions between factions.
- Alerts - Personal alerts independent of displayed area.
I would also suggest that Chat Alerts appear in Faction and Cross-Faction chat, so that a discussion with someone outside the displayed area still shows, but Alerts should be personal alerts, and Activity should only be activity that is in the displayed window.
