You act like they have been fixing other things. I am sure it is on the list of things they want to 'fix' which will take them months and months of coding, and 50 attempts to actually fix.

To be honest, many players have given up on Trion actually fixing anything. Sure they talk a lot about fixing things, but almost every attempt that they have made to fix anything has ended up not fixing the issue, but creating new issues which, instead of rolling things back and fixing it right, they just keep patching over.

TL;DR
Be happy they are not fixing it, or it would probably be even worse...like any time you try to text chat, the Barney song starts blaring over your speakers worse.

it is insane we've gone this long with so many chat problems. I primarily use txt chat and it is so frustrating, not to mention no predictive txt on ps3.

Thank you, that'll be $5.

They tried that "this is just a draft" last time. He knows full well that the chat is one of the biggest problems that have been reported and complained about, so to leave that out? nah, they didn't fix it despite saying they were. If it was fixed, they would've said so.
So we'll continue to have clan chat issues, disappearing chat, tiny chat, et cetera.

Don't feel too bad about that. Hell, the 1.02 patch has turned me into a terrible liar. I am the go to source for all of my non-forum using friends. I've promised them the moon and more in this upcoming patch, but after reading the notes, nearly all the things I've told them that were getting fixed aren't even on the list.

It's gonna be like spending the day out getting drunk after getting layed off, trying to think of something to tell your wife and kids, when the only result is you returning at 3 in the morning reeking of scotch only to tell them that you don't have the ability to keep food on the table any more.

Well, probably not that bad. But I do like being dramatic.

so your saying the fact they didnt comment on people asking shows the chat is not getting fixed or this company has a lack of communication?

The issue is more that there's so many unlinkable sources of information we can't say pretty much anything about what is coming.

Whether or not this intentional is a fascinating topic.

I think their priority goes to trying to keep up with the TV Season and having the Episode content and other game mode content rolling out. Aside from that they did simpler/easier fixes.

The chat issue must be more complex for some reason... It really doesn't work. I think it worked better at launch (PS3-NA) than it works nowadays. I don't know why but now I think it just doesn't work at all.

If I do bother sending a text message the only place that can be seen is in the Start Menu which shows last 3 lines of messages including the chat text... who the heck keeps checking the Start Menu to see if any text messages have come across?

Sledge is a cool enough guy, don't get me wrong....

BUT...

DO you honestly believe 90% of what he or anyone else tells you? Cuz I got off that gullible train TIMMMME ago man...

"there was many other things not listed yet" is the ULTIMATE excuse for not addressing issues...its just a general "shut up until you realize "many things" = "nothing"

Guys i dont think they will remake the chat system anytime soon. I was on a trion's stream 2 weeks ago and a dev was answering questions, i asked him about chat 5-6 times but no response...

Too bad, my first trion's game and i have more bad things to say than good. No big deal, just another future customer lost.

What are you talking about?

The priority is truly "Make the game look pretty while adding some minor things to distract people".

Unfortunately, I would have to be in agreement. Major things that aren't in the 'Big Patch' (1.02).......I really don't see them as being done in the foreseeable future.

Well, the cleaning lady has to unplug the server at 5A to vaccum the offices, and she has to empty the wastebaskets, too.

Just how much free time to code the patches do you think that poor woman has in 24 hours?

My Gawd, but you're an evil taskmaster.
