The chat system was broken as recently as last week. I can’t even count how many times its been that way in the last year.
Last week local was so broke I was showing 19 players in local with one of my characters, while another character simultaneously showed only 3 in local in the same system. Repeatedly attempted to communicate with other players, system kept faulting and saying disconnected from chat system. I wasnt subbed on the one day they’ve chosen out of untold numbers of days its been broken.
I dont blame the devs though, just seems like uh, there has a been significant change in quality of service in the last year. Again, I dont at all blame the devs for this. Jita has been so broken some days that the lag experienced using the market is game breaking. Literally took several minutes for items to appear in one’s inventory sometimes. If you’re trying to fit a ship to go pvp, and the market isn’t working, you have problems. Especially if you have time constraints external from the game. Im ranting, but I could go on about other issues than just the broken chat system, and market lag…like the PI system bugging out/lagging out in ways I’ve never seen in 7 years of playing. And the overview/grid not loading until after you’re on grid.
