Port chat ever going to get fixed?

As the title asks, will the port chat ever going to get fixed?

 

Randomly resetting comment history, not accurately telling if people are in a game or not, extreme UI lag when searching for other players or channels, etc..

It's been like that forever since I can remember.

 

But we have the UI team randomly changing the division UI, tying the entire division to those very same crappy chat functions.

 

So, any ETA on fixing that crap? Or just an ackowledgement that WG do indeed realize it needs some fixing?

Well Ao, since its been about 3 years without any change, I wouldn't hold my breath. Its more important for WG to make something new and dazzling than fixing stuff that should've been fixed back in Beta...

It would be nice if they improved the chat interface, there's considerable room for improvement, it's clunky.

As pointed out in another thread, things like being able to select message (as well as the usual stuff) in the right click from the team results screen would mean not having to use the terrible search tool as much.

Being able to resize chat windows would be nice.

 

You can by dragging from some of the corners.

 

 

To AO; once the Year of the CVTM is over they'll fix it soonTM.

I wouldn't mind 'something', unfortunately there is multitude of 'somethings'...

Would also love if the chat, when minimized blinks in a yellow (or whatever color) when someone have typed something. That 1 or 2 thingy doesn't Catch my attention.

Simply put it.....make it like wot.

I agree.

And I think you should try to summon some WG peeps....

Who dares summon me!? 

 

Just kidding :Smile_hiding:

 

The UI issues are a sore point for us as well and something we really want to address as soon as we can free up the necessary dev time, until then there is little we can do :(

We understand that resources are limited. But why not spend them on this rather than using them to mess up divisions?

If it was a sore point, you guys would find the time / resources...

 

But I know, that is the line you have to tow.

I'm sorry, but that doesn't make any sense.

It's been like this since the early beta days (maybe even longer, but I wouldn't know as I only joined in Closed Beta). You're really telling us during all those years there was never time to address this?

 

And that's especially dubious since apparently there was time to screw up the division ready/not ready interface and chat.

I have to agree with @Juanx above.... if you're honest about this beining a sore point for you, then you would've found some time to fix it during all those past years.

They are busy with pumping out new premium/silver ships and new upgrades. Hang on! They might fix the bugs in next 5 years.

Sorry to be sceptical Conway, but no. This sounds disingenuous (oh you might think this way for sure). But this has been in the game since closed beta at least and a lot of us have been pointing it out. It is even a kind of running gag among players I know. You really never had time in since closed beta to put even a single dev on it? But the division window was linked to the chat system anyways.

 

And you say that about the UI. I'm not sure you realize we are also talking about the chat system itself. The absolute unreliability of it. The many times where for some reason it is "unavailable" (so much fun when divisioning). But keep ignoring the problems... its probably fine to have a barely working chat system in a MMO.

 

Not blaming you for the devs decisions though. But I remain skeptical of your comment here (party line and such whatnot)

I guess maybe the dev time that was allocated to breaking the division window should have been allocated to this instead.
