I agree though that a command channel that is limited to continent, and one for the server also, might work...think i might go toss that request in the roadmap on the topic for when they add companies since comms are getting redone for that. I feel like that's another issue that .... So they are irrelevant to whatever the outfit is doing? That doesn't make a lot of sense- because your outfit must run into times when they could use additional support against large groups, or other outfits- where pulling from the faction pool could be useful, surely. After all, how else would you pull up reinforcements the few times you need them?
