    I often find myself scrolling up to figure out how much mythium me or my teammate recieved in previous rounds, which is kinda frustrating to do if there has been lots of chatting. It's especially bad if you try to look something up and then your teammate writes something, making your chat automatically scroll down to the newest message. Sometimes I was entirely unable to check myth of previous rounds because my mate has been typing so much. It's really annoying and there should be a seperate chat window for it.

    +1 for this, or put a check option to not automaticallly force it to the latest received message.

    Yeah, we could do something like that.

    I think I was hoping that people would use the tab scoreboard to check myth received. Is the issue with the tab scoreboard that there is too much content there? Maybe it is unnecessary to show specific mercs and only show the value received?

    Tbh, I can't think of any moment where I checked the new information that you've added there, sorry.

    True, it's easy to just go with what you're familiar with.

    Maybe try forcing yourself to use tab instead of checking chat for mercenaries received, for a few days, and see if you can get used to it. It took me some days to get used to it, but I always check tab now.

    Don't worry Lisk, I use the history in Tab whenever I forget what exact mercenaries my ally received that wave :D. However, I think the history has alot of information in it that I'm generally not looking for. The %leaked is a good example for this. Like I'm not saying that it's a bad thing to have it in the history, but sometimes I'm just looking for how much mythium my ally received on 6 and having to scroll through the history is slightly annoying. Having a small window on my 'main' screen that shows the amount of mythium received on each wave would be nice.

    @Lisk maybe add in the options menu a way to filter what events to show? Or if you have space and it makes sense add the filter in the tab menu its self.

    I definitely feel like the <TAB> menu sidebar is to cluttered for me to quickly see a summary of mythium received.

    Yeah, same issue here. I don't find the informations I want as fast as with scrolling through the chat. I just want to see the amount of mythium recieved, nothing else. And that alone is 2 lines in the event log, while it's only one in the chat. Not to mention that in the chat your number is highlighted, which is not the case in the event log. So it's not as easy to see on first sight.

    That's why I suggested a filter, but that might just make the matter worse

    Yeah, I think I can remove % leaked now that we have the mini-scoreboard (bottom left) which shows gold lost/gained from leaks. The original idea was if you couldn't remember who leaked, it was maybe useful to see the % leaked to estimate who is ahead.

    Also maybe I might implement something where if you are holding tab (Scoreboard open) and press spacebar, then it switches views (to a mythium-only view).

    Also, good idea that your own mercs received should be highlighted somehow.

    I am hesitant to do a filter since I think it might be annoying to hold tab and click it, and also implementation cost of doing this might not be worth it.

    Can you also implement something when you press up up down down left right left right B A?
