Ready Check Slated for 1.7.3
One of the features that have been asked most about for a while, it the feature “Ready Check”. If your not used to mmorpg’s, ready check is a common feature used in most game of this sort. A ready check is an automatic survey that can initiated by a party or raid leader. Anyone promoted to raid assistant by the leader is also able to use the command. The command is initiated by typing /readycheck, or by clicking the “Ready Check” button in the raid ui panel.
All members of the Operaton will receive a popup window that asks if the player is ready. If all players click “yes”, the person who initiated the check will receive a message indicating so. If a player clicks “no” or does not respond within the prescribed time limit a message will be sent to the leader indicating that they are either not ready or AFK, respectively. Players who are flagged with the flag will auto-respond as being AFK.
Ready checks are most often used in preparation for a boss encounter to make sure everyone is ready to commence. They are also often used as a means to survey which players have returned if the raid takes a break for any reason.
With game update 1.7.3 this feature looks like it will be added to the game, as Eric Musco took the forum to update us on the feature:
So that’s it guys. Finally no more jumping/running around like a monkey just to let the Op Leader know I’m ready for action.
