1. We have a QA initiative where we work with the community more closely than ever to get your bug reports into the hands of the developers. Please use this forum for LIVE Server bug reporting. Do follow the format below, because it will help us out greatly in responding. If you do not, it's possible your bug report will be misinterpreted, or worse, lost!

    Read BEFORE submitting your first bug: Reporting Bugsā€¦ QA 101 Document
    • Disable all Lua Add-Ons by using '/lua unload' in local chat or temporarily move all files/folders out of the SotA Lua folder then restart the game.
      Ensure the issue still occurs before submitting a bug; Support staff will not debug Add-On issues
    • Search for your bug before posting in order to avoid duplicate reports.
    • Only reply to an existing thread if you have additional information for the reported bug. ALL extraneous commentary will be deleted to avoid cluttering the reports.
    • Keep your bug report short and factual.
    • There is no need to submit crash logs. Crash data we require is automatically logged.

    Title: Unable to chat or see universe chat, even with orb
    Reproduction Rate: 100%
    Blocker? Yes
    Details: I am unable to chat or see universe chat while in game, even though this account has a orb. Typing anything in Universe gives message "Failed to send the message". See pictures. I have tried completely closing and starting the game. I also cannot see universe or trade chat. My other account works just fine. This one does not.
    Steps to Reproduce: See pictures. This is only happening for this account.

    Have orb in inventory, Attempt to type something in Universe:

    Receive "Failed to send the message" error.

    This is now working correctly in patch 945.

    It seems that universe/trade chat only works the first time that you log in. After logging out, you will need to restart the client in order for these chat channels to work. Other workarounds may exist, as well, but I was able to reliably reproduce the issue in this way.

    This issue has been fixed internally, so the fix should be released in an upcoming patch this week.

    Thanks again for your help with this! :)
