    Default Question on Friends List and Chat-Related Issues

    I want to get a better sense of how many players are still experiencing issues with their Friends list and other chat-related issues, like voice chat not working and/or guild chat not working. We KNOW Thelanis is still experiencing this issue, but not how many are impacted. Additionally, it isn't clear if this is still happening outside of Thelanis. Let me know.

    Still happening on most of my logins. If I invite a guildie to party, so far zero chance chat will work: both text and voice broken.

    While Playing on Khyber voice did not work for me on Saturday Evening between 11PM and 2 AM Eastern. I could hear half the party, Nobody could hear me, and not everyone could hear everyone else. Party Chat worked.

    Things were very laggy last night on Thelanis. Our guild had around a dozen people on. Sometimes the various chat functions worked (tells always seem to work), sometimes party voice works. Sometimes it doesn't or only works for certain people.

    We've been having voice issues with this for months now where someone joins a party late or has to restart a frozen client and when they return or join, they aren't in voice. Reforming the party sometimes fixed this, sometimes not. Right now, we've switched to mostly Discord because the voice is so unreliable and has been for months. Doesn't help with chat functions, though, which are unreliable since the recent server work. Better last night, but not fixed.

    So I don't know if the problems are related, but chat seemed somewhat better (but not fixed completely) and voice was at least as flaky as it has been for months now.

    I'm permanently missing my friends list now. In the beginning, it came and went, but haven't seen it in more than a week now.

    I play on G-land.

    Same with me, on Ghallanda, Friends list MIA. Multiple guildmates confirm the same thing with them.

    I haven't had chat issue, though.

    On G-land, I've repeatedly had chat issues. Since I don't use the chat channels much, I don't know if that's affected. I repeatedly get hit with a huge lag spike with upwards of 50% packet loss. Then, it'll start bouncing between getting disconnected from the chat server and reconnecting to the chat server. Sometimes it's just one cycle of that and other times it's 3 or 4 times. All this with a yellow network status icon until it turns to red at the chat server disconnects. Sometimes, it loses the network connection completely and closes the client. When it does that it's also likely that I won't be able reconnect for a couple minutes - the launcher can't connect to the logon server. After the retries, it quits again. This goes on from 2 - 10 minutes before the logon server is available again.

    Now, I've been chalking this up to our network connection here and to the wifi connection to my computer. I'm certain that it's playing it's part in everything after the chat server "hiccups". Now that I see other folks, I'm thinking the initial issues are with the Ghallanda realm and my network issues just make it worse.

    As for the friend's list issues ... well, like with the chat channels you have to use the function to notice a problem. Since I mostly solo, or duo with my brother, I don't have a friends list.

    I redid my friends list by typing them all in again. That seems to have worked without any hickups. This is on Ghallanda.

    On Thelanis.

    Sunday, entire group was able to join any chats.
    - Party chat gave errors ('failed to join' etc), but was able to run commands like /roll which the whole party was able to see.
    - Guild chat did not give errors, but nothing typed there was displayed to guldies.
    - Friends lists were gone and did not reappear.

    Everyone used Discord to communicate and there was much gnashing of teeth.

    Happened last night to me and a guildie on Thelanis (We're on opposite coasts, if it helps). Switched to Wayfinder, chat worked great.

    Some think I'm a pain in the neck. Others have a lower opinion.

    yeah, missing all of friends list on Ghallanda still since the server work.

    Initially, I thought that the friends list was just hidden (not gone), because if I tried typing in the name of someone that was on the list, it would give me a message saying that player had been updated (although the friends list would still be blank). But then after some time, now if I type in the name of a player that was on the list before, it appears on the list. I think the friends list has been wiped out.



    I think someone else already reported this before, but the ignore/squelch list was also reset/wiped.

    In 10 years of playing the game across 7 computers and 11 sound cards Voice chat has NEVER worked correctly for me.

    Basicly my whole guild is affected and people I talked to from other guilds to. On Thelanis. Some people have it work in between, but mostly friend lists, all channels(except private messages) and ingame chat are not working.

    On Thelanis.

    Having intermittent issues. But common.
    Sometimes relogging helps, but right now I cannot get it to work.
