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!

    • 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.

    For instance general is called

    shroud of the avatar.general

    but you type

    shroud of the avatar:general

    If it's possible to make . work as well as : that might save a lot of confusion down the line.

    I'm not quite sure what you are suggesting? One of the issues we encountered is that multiple servers could have a "general" channel therefore you have to specify both the server and channel name.


    This was our original delimiter. However, we quickly discovered that server names could have periods in them which made parsing out the server/channel names from the text you typed next to impossible to do reliably. Instead we picked ":" which we hope to be less frequently used in server names.

    This was what I meant. I see why you chose that then. Does it make sense to use the : for the name of the channel as well, then?

    No reply needed, you're busy. You see what I mean and thanks for the reply. And thanks for Discord!
