We're happy to introduce our newest feature, Groups! You can find groups by mousing over the Community tab on the menu bar.

Groups are very much in the works. We're starting small, and we want to hear what you guys want to use Groups for before we expand the feature! :)

Here's what you can currently do with Groups:
  • Create a public or private group
    • Public groups can be joined by anybody
    • Private groups require new members to send a join request, and for that request to be approved by the Group Leader
  • Choose whether or not your group appears in the Browse Groups page
  • Set your group playstyle, region, time zone, days of the week (if desired, you can leave them blank)
  • The Group Leader can:
    • PM all members with one click
    • Kick members
    • Promote another member to leader

You can browse groups to see what groups are out there, or create your own!



Once you create a group you can find it in your "More About Me" page on your profile. Likewise, you can see what groups other HeroesFire members are in by checking our their More About Me page. :)

We're so excited to see what kind've groups you guys make, and keep in mind to let us know what more you want to see from groups!

Sounds neat. I think the most obvious application is for players who are trying to make teams - this seems like a clean way to group them together.

Curious to see what other things people come up with though.

Personally I think it'd be awesome if each group, rather than having to "PM All" back and forth, had its own mini-forum for people to communicate with.

Or like a "feed" a la Twitter.

I guess PM All works fine, just seems a little less streamlined than having it all done via the group.
