That's not the contact list, that's the chat system. And yes, that's annoying.

Chat hasn't worked properly in ages, sending messages to players and they never get them, also when I am sent messages it just flashes yellow and when I open it there is either no message or only part of the message, you would think after all this time it would be finally fixed.

I've noticed this only in the past few days. As OP points out, it seems to be triggered by attempting to send a message, at least in my case when I try messaging a friend who is online.. After about 30 secs to 1 minute, it starts to work again. Mind you, for a couple of times me and my friend have noticed that the message tab starts blinking but no actual message gets through...

 

Yesterday something else happened, my friend was shown going offline for 30 seconds, much the same way as when you switch servers to join a platoon. Except he didn't switch servers. But this might be due to connection problems at his end, because he also lost connection for 1 minute or so after joining the platoon.

I had that and just closed the chat window and contacts list and waited for a bit, after which it worked fine. Not sure if that qualifies as a "fix".

 

EDIT: Also in response to Browarszky we also experienced problems with my friends client crashing and being unable to join the platoon so that's likely to be related.

the chat system is in dire need of an overhaul.

at least add a real-time status info like: AFK / looking-for-toon / in-battle / etc.

 

since it already uses (a very small subset of) XMPP why not open it further and

allow clan chat via the "wot assistant" mobile app?

Now that you mention it, he send me a text message then saying the client crashed. There is also another thread that maybe related:

Yes it sometimes works to just wait, however this soon shows up again (literally every time you try to send a message)

 

It isn't fixed by a client restart, nor by switching servers and it has nothing to do with mods.

 

Maybe/Maybe not related but I also occasionally get chat boxes appear flashing yellow which haven't had messages sent from them in months. This is sporadic and doesn't happen often but it's still there.

It's been a regular occurrence for a year now. 1 year. 

Waste of energy to complain.

Will some shill please tell players to stop whining?

Any maybe demand evidence and call the OP a liar?

He isn't whining, he is reporting a well known problem in a kinda mannered and elaborate way.

He doesn't make any wild claims and he already showed the evidence - which wouldn't even be necessary in this case, as it's a well known problem reported by a lot of people.

 

Good job with digging that hole deeper.

Yes of course it's not whining it's reporting a game experience.

Don't you want evidence accumulated of 1000s of games?

The "well known problem" has been "reported by a lot of people" for over a year now.

Wargaming support respond to issue tickets by directing players to this forum and to information-free, no-answer, oblivious, perma-resident shills here on this forum.

Good job you.

Meanwhile a year on there is no information, no acknowledgement, no communication from the game company.

And clearly you have no issue with that.

Real good job.

I believe WG fixed it for all Dingers as a priority. Just apply and you'll get sorted.

My experience RR was that if you waited, it did come up and did work. It sometimes took 30 secs for it to sort itself out, and I think they do use separate servers for chat so I'm guessing you could be connected to the game OK, but not to chat.

The last I heard of your former clan was some of their officers in a platoon featured in a Claus Kellerman "Biggest A**holes" Youtube episode. Not sure if they won the popular vote but they did another good job representing the clan with good co-operative WOT skills in bullying, isolating, trolling, team-shooting and completely ruining a game for an unfortunate solo player.

That's the T-D-U clan way I guess.

T-D-U 4 eva !!! But never seen that one I'm afraid. What were they doing?

 

Playing all their games at tier 3 with seven skill crews and trolling new players in the ultimate exhibition of seal clubbing that is so embarrassing you'd find an alt account to post on the forum just to avoid it being spotted?

 

Not one of those a-holes were they?

T-D-U / -MM clan sealclubbers taking breaks from full platoons gold-spamming lower tier grinders with 7-skill crews hilariously being affronted by imagining others doing the same....

You want a link? Need help?

Or is it that you just not bring yourself to criticise Wargamings communication and bug-acknowledgement policy? Of course you can't.

Meanwhile your favourite clans' officer players' skills and ideology is there to be witnessed by anyone else with the wit to look.

And you cheer them on. Gj.

Would you look at this. I was complaining about this back in October 2017 if only you had the wit to look? I forgot they got a few likes as well.

My experience too mate. However this only works until the next time you try to send a message (for me anyway)
