Yes I know, plenty of the same topic, chat is down, no word from WG, Moderators gone AWOL, etc.

 

Under normal circumstances yet another arty thread would attract a Moderator to the Forum in rapid time, maybe I'll hook one with yet another 'chat' thread?

That's just putting a big lump of bread on the hook, I'm using a dry fly.

They removed chat and friends list all together because it's adding too much toxicity to the game.

Seems like they also removed the search function here on forum too aswell

Not sure what to tell you. Its a reported and known bug and hopefully there will be a hotfix soon. There is not much more I can tell since I don't exactly work with anything technically related to the game. Yeah it sucks but its not the end of the world in my opinion.

to me it is quite a hard impact to my enjoyment of the game to be honest,

as imo every good MMO relies on a stable chat system.

I know you technically don't work on it, but it's not only the bug that is the problem - it's the total lack of any sort of feedback or recommended solution. The players have to find workarounds themselves, apparently.

 

The most frightening thing is that despite all the threads, there hasn't been a single mod post in days. Yes, I know, we can see it on the front page. Apparently, the two most well-known mods don't have any problems reading the forum, nor does Ph3lan have too much work to play the game.

 

It's pretty fudging obvious that we're being ignored in some way. We need glasnost.

 

Oh, and that bug is pretty fudging annoying. I can still play the game, but I have to scour through Teamspeak channels to find company, or cross my fingers that this crapwon't happen when there's organized play going on. It's pretty darn nonchalant of you to state that it's not a huge deal, I'll tell you that much.

Everything is the end of the world if there’s a sniff of compensation in the air.

I don't care for compensation. Not one bit. I like this game, I enjoy supporting it, but if this is the way Wargaming is going with the playerbase SerB's gonna have to build his moonbase without a third bathroom!

What they are really doing is showing everyone how bad a chat ban is, in the hope that the chat will become less toxic. Those of us who have been very naughty already know what it's like..... now the rest of you do.

 

I still think Discord is the future for all things chatty....

Ok maybe not my best choice of words because naturally not being able to communicate with others in game is pretty darn annoying. However unless there is something we could forward to you guys there is no point of telling soon™ or we're working on it since it leaves the impression of leading you on, which is neither the case nor our intention. 

Even my posting in this Thread was kinda risky from begin with but I'll take my chances. For what its worth I'm gonna try poking Community Team and see if we can have any info about it.

Annoying indeed. It keeps being more annoying that we don't even get a single "we know, we try to fix, our hamsters are tired, sorry". 

 

I'm unfamiliar with the "leading on" logic. It would make a lot of sense to provide a sticky with the "we know, we sorry, we fix" and include some common tips on how to work around this problem. The community has found a few:

  • Making chat rooms, using the Forumites channel
  • Changing servers can work
  • Deleting the WoT application data

 

Hey, hang on...

Please tell me that you just haven't finished your cup of coffee, Kevin. Seriously.

 

Thanks for poking them, though. Doubt it'll work. There's been a lot of poking the last three days.

Not saying anything at all gives the impression that the community team doesn't give a flying fornication about it, or us.

 

We've had more communication from an ex employee than the entire current community team the last three days.

 

I know it's not your job, you are only here to keep the peace but if you can wake up the community team that would be great.
