Single Status Update
Ok, so, I played a lot last night and found that a) You can't do multiplayer while on a main quest, so I had to finish that, and with your multiplayer portal open, you can't turn in requests or advance the clock. So how about this? Turn on Ally Mode which lets you connect to someone and chat with them. Both people have to set that up (turning it on in general and choosing to connect with specific people on your friends' list) before you can send messages, I think. I've done that on my end. Then, when we're both on, we can use Ally Chat to coordinate and someone can open a portal.
