Feature Request: Copyable battleground reports

I'd like to request a button in the battleground result messages that would allow us to copy into the paste-buffer the results of the battle. This is very similar to the button in the private messages that allows you to cut/paste the contents of those messages. The message contents would be very simple (i.e. easy to parse for battleground calculator programs) and would just need the title, battle location, losses, and rewards. For example, something like this would be absolutely ideal:

You raided Orcish Altar (lvl. 39, X:10,Y:10)
Your Losses: Knight 10 of 10, Chimera 14 of 15
Enemy Losses: Marennon 5 of 5, Orc 5 of 5, Orcish Raider 5 of 5, Ogre 3 of 3
Rewards: gold 31678, dragon 23, griffin 4

This idea would make battlegrounds a lot less "hardcore" due to it simplifying the actual mechanics around battlegrounds. That said I am completely for it, however I can just see a certain few who will strongly oppose

All it really does is save a whole bunch of time spent manually copying battle results to spreadsheets - not sure what about that would make things less "hardcore" :)   It's simply a convenience for those who do want to automate things a bit is all.

As the other guy said, it would just save you time, not make it less hardcore. With ability to copy battle reports, you would have the community start make nice  tools such as combat parsers, maybe even killboards for leagues to flaunt their stuff, if you familiar with EVE -)


Also be able to copy out of the ingame chat would be very much wanted. Most of the time if someone post a link in the ingame chat, its like "screw that".

Thank you for the suggestion, Lord Devnullicus. 


I personally don't see any drawbacks of such a button. Those who do their maths are already copying the reports manually and it would just save their time significantly. I doubt there are people who enjoy typing the results by hand. But who knows... Our Scribe does. In any case, we'll consider the suggestion. Thank you!

How about a button to copy a RAID/SIEGE/SPY report? Currently, there is no way to share a report unless you screenshot it, and then copy/paste the link to share. Then someone else has to copy/paste the link back to browser to see it, or try and remember the link to retype it on the tab they looked at the last report on.  

I can understand Plarium not wanting to allow hot-linked URLs, since it would undoubtedly be misused by some, but isn't there a way to allow reports to be posted and clicked in chat?

I think, therefore I game.

We understand how important is for Lords and Ladies the ability to share their reports without the help of third party programs and we are working to implement a quick and effective way to do this.
