​unfortunately, no. They did have a micropatch like a few days ago, but the whole 'tech issues', needs to be addressed. So no, they may not be able to fix it.

Alas. Me thinks this is beyond WG's control or it would have been fixed by now.

Most of the players in my clan are having the same issue, WG please fix contact list and the ability to message friends is broke as well.

Strange, although like most (all) people, I can't see my contact list, but on the WOT app I have on my phone, all of them show. Can't message them from there, but their stats, info, etc. are shown.

 

So I guess your contact info at WOT still exists, but the link to it is broken.

I have decades of experience managing large software packages. It is very obvious that WG mismanages their package to a shocking degree, because all the expected symptoms are occurring with increasing frequency.

 

The most glaring symptoms include:

1) Inconsistent user interfaces (e.g. in the Garage, click on each of the buttons that open a new window, and notice how almost none of them have exactly the same UI functionality).

2) When a new feature is added to the game, completely unrelated existing functions are broken (e.g. the Contacts list, sorting teams by player name after battle, etc), because the code is increasingly "spaghetti".

3) The number of bugs in the released code increases, and bug fixes take longer to implement.

4) New feature additions take longer and longer to implement.

5) Outside s/w contractors are bought in because the company's own staff are so inefficient that they can't do the necessary work. (I got a big laugh out of WG's 30vs30 video that proudly boasted that the new mode was programmed by an external company. Boasting about their inability to do their own work -- LOL).

 

WG has only one product that matters, the World of Tanks program. It's slowly but surely dying because the code base is a f***king disaster because it has never been managed properly.

It's been what, a week now? I thought, based on previous answers from support, that it might be a DNS issue (because they expected it to be resolved by itself over time). I run my own DNS servers, so I flushed their cache and flushed the DNS cache on my computer too. No change.

There is no fix, this is something on the server end and we have been told that it will just fix itself in due time.... "we need to be patient" !

I am saying they FIXED IT.  It is WORKING NOW for me at least.

 

But anyone not in my clan has not clan tag.  Better than no chat at all.

Mine is functioning ( though people not in clan no longer appear on list to have clan tags of their own), however, some people are missing from the list. Also, some players still have the entire list missing. 

It is therefore working partially for some, and not at all for others.

Still no fix, right? How long has this been going on - like a month or more I think.

Maybe someone should make a forum bot that makes a post once an hour asking for an update on the friends list bug on every section of the forums. So that it doesn't quite flag as spam but it's obvious enough that the moderators report it further up and they realize it's actually an issue.

Sorry to report it's still broke even after a mini patch upload this morning. This just sucks. Wargaming please extract your cranium from your gluteus maximus.
