Can I get help!? I moved my character to a server that was way too high of a pop and now i’m stuck here in an 800 person queue. Anyway i could go back lmao?

But it didn’t fix it permanently because I’ve had to relog 5 times now. This is a problem from post-patch tonight. 9pm EST. And it’s broken again as of 10:27 pm EST.

Can’t talk in global, recruitment, help, and faction. Area, group, dm’s, and company work.


Same, can’t speak in Global / Recruitement.

I can’t talk in global either, and there’s no restriction. It just doesn’t send my messages. I’ve restarted game and computer, verified game files, uninstalled and reinstalled… What else can I do?

I reported it as well, at least one cause of this bug seems to be joining a match of outpost rush. There may be other causes for it as well.

@Luxendra I am also unable to use Global Chat randomly even after relogging. It works for a bit then goes away again.

Echo the same, Relog works for a while then can’t speak again.

Wrong, and sometimes even re-log doesn’t fix it… or maybe it does, but not even long enough for you to get 1 message out.

Group chat and company were working fine, global, faction, and recruitment were not.

Can confirm could talk before joing OPR.

Same. Suddenly find I’m limited to channels I can talk in. Relogging fixes for a time until it comes back. Happened in a war last night.


Doesn’t work. I real permanent fix needs rolling.

90% of the time I’m unable to talk in global channels, this is really annoying. A relog fixes it but it’s usually broken again within a few minutes.

I notice that entering or leaving an instance (i.e. Outpost Rush) causes it to stop working.

Reporting inablity to speak in Global as well

Relog is a temporary fix. Not permanent and this shouldn’t be an ongoing issue after several patches.
