In Starcraft 1, it was /w <username> <message>, but that doesn't work anymore. I thought they just removed that ability, but today I received a message from my opponent after our game was over.

So, how do you message players who aren't on your friends' list?

  • You can message an opponent from the victory screen after a game

  • @tzenes: Really!? I never noticed that!? ..Come to think of it, I guess there wouldn't be any way to do it in general, since there can be multiple players with the same username... Alright, post that as an answer (with a picture, please - you're very good at that!) and I'll accept Sep 10, 2010 at 2:31

    I think we should just hardcode it so that any time a starcraft-2 question is asked, tzenes gets +15 reputation. :P Sep 10, 2010 at 3:03
  • to be more specific, you just have to click the user's name, and hit the "chat" option. Sep 10, 2010 at 3:07
  • I believe if they chat you while you are in game you can use /r to reply as well...

You can message an opponent from the victory screen after a game, or from the match history:

    Anyone know if you can also do this later on, by pulling up the score screen from your match history?

  • Whoa, I didn't realize you could come back to this screen once it closed. Where do you do that from? Sep 10, 2010 at 14:42

    @BlueRaja under a player's profile you can see the Match History and select any previously played game.

  • This doesn't seem to be possible anymore in Starcraft 2 by now. I can see all my replays directly in the top Navigation, but there I can only start the replyay, but no way to get the score screen again, or see the other players profile screen. I created a Bug Report

Message all players, you had a match with

It is not possible from the Replay section of SC2, but you can go to your profile inside starcraft 2 and in your match history you can find and chat with all players from all matches.
