Blade & Soul plagued by chat bugs after maintenance

    
26

NCsoft’s Blade & Soul is having a rough maintenance day.

Players are reporting numerous issues since the game’s latest update, most relating to chat. Earlier today, the company acknowledged that it was aware of a bug preventing characters under level 11 from sending messages outside of their parties. The latest message from the community team notes that it is “currently having an issue affecting the chat right now” and that the “team is aware of that and currently working on addressing that problem” — the problem being that the last fix apparently nuked all chat but say, for everyone.

I’d be happy just to be able to use the /say channel, but I can’t even do that.  The only “public” chat channel I can use at level ~8 and that doesn’t even work.  So much face palm right now.

Well…that’s fine. But there doesn’t appear to anyway to do that. Normally right clicking the offending name would bring down an option menu. In this game, I kept getting booted back to combat mode when trying that. And there doesn’t appear to be any other way to address this. So turning the channel back off is currently the only means of shutting down the spam. :(

JohnD212 Boardwalker ManastuUtakata I got exactly same issue. My play time: 1. Wait in queue. 2. Clear previous day blocked list. 3. Start blocking to be able to see chat. 4. Play a bit. 5. Block new batch of spammers. 6. Hit max 50. 7. Log out…

It might be my server, but it is not fun!

I saw the same as you…but it seems others are having different experiences. Perhaps this is a server difference issue.

Boardwalker ManastuUtakata The block is great until they tell you that you’ve reached the max of 50 blocks and can’t block anymore.

ManastuUtakata I was just on. Very little spam in chat. What spam there was I quickly fixed with a block and went on about my business.
