Chat has now been broken on and off for like 1 year now, and still no fix.

For how long do I/we have to wait for you at WG to fix this issue?

The coding skills of WG's devs working on WoT for sure ain't making me buy or invest in any other game related to WG, the bugs we see in WoT are beyond ridiculous, heck it's not some random early access game in alpha after all...

The part I don’t quite understand is how it basically worked for about six years and now this. What on earth changed?

Hmm, got some naughty pics in my head of your avatar + shower + sprouts now!!

 

Regarding what you said though, nothing has changed, but WG now have a couple of other games they are trying to push, but after playing WoT for so long and having experienced just how WG work I will never touch those. They've made so many blunders over the years that are so ridiculous, not to mention the PR fiascoes that came with them, sure they are making billions, but they are less professional and offers less communication than a dev of some shovelware on Steam.

Sorry should have made it clearer, what has changed with chat that it’s now so bad? I do agree with your overall sentiment though.

It's a company. People come, people go. Procedures change with time. New code don't mix well with old code. And here we are. Cheers.

Well the actual chat functionality and all that comes with it kinda work when ever it feels like it, at times it's down all together, at times some of it works, at times it crash mid game and often it comes with a lag spike, at times it work flawlessly, just like how this works at the moment: http://forum.worldof...ot-registering/

Sure when ever you patch/update something you can run into bugs I fix those all day my self, WG however seem to rely on the random chance that any future patch might fix it rather than actually fix the bug, the chat have been an issue for over a year now, the hit sound bug is up to 4 months and those ain't some minor bugs, they are major things that any serious company would prioritize.

At least with the sound bug you can say they were doing a major overhaul of the game engine and it had a deadline to meet. So release it, even with know bugs, and then quickly fix the most important ones. Four months is somewhat harder to justify.

 

The chat bug/instability, what has changed and why does it take a year and it’s still not fixed. I’ve never liked the expression it can’t be that hard can it, when uttered by the uninformed, but it can’t be that hard can it?

The most frustrating thing is when I cannot even insult 43% WR bots from my team after the game to properly vent out. WG please fix.

But people still throw all their pocket money at them, even and especially the ones who continuously complain about all kinds of things.

Yes. I know of 10s of players that complain about the game yet buy or free exp the latest line/tank that comes out. I think this is why Wg don't really care about these issues; they aren't game breaking features that will turn people away, so why bother spending time/money/resources trying to fix them.

What I can't work out is why they invest in 1.0 and a new graphics engine, but can't get these bugs fixed.

 

You'd think that not fixing bugs was maybe because WG are just sweating the asset and not wanting to spend money on it. But then they launch 1.0 and tolerate a game full of bugs?

I guess I am one of the reasons why WG don't bother fixing chat...

 

I use the ingame chat about once every 100 games - the messages I see on there (other than Z key messages or minimap pings) are almost all insults anyway
I've never used the garage message thing other than to respond to people messaging me (almost always insults for hitting them in Arty)

I really wouldn't care less if they scrapped chat altogether

So if there are a lot of players like me who don't use the system, why bother keeping it working ?
