It is frustrating as hell, Wargaming gives ups platoon missions etc, and you cannot complete them because you cannot invite your clanmates or buddies.  Total BS in my opinion.  They should fix all the current issues instead of screwing everything up with the CONSTANT patches.  Half of my clan cannot even see me in game even though I am physically playing the game.  Wargaming, please fix the issues that are current and leave it ALL alone for at least 3 months before I pull what is left of my hair out.

I and many in my clan have been having this issue for at least a month, every now and then all of a sudden you come out of a battle and it's working, next battle though and it's gone again, wth?

It hasn't loaded once in 3 weeks for me, and it's been an ongoing issue for a few months now, progressively getting worse up to it's current state.  Ridiculous that this gets shelved for months, I wonder how quickly they would resolve an issue with the online store? 

 

Personally I'm not buying a single piece of gold until this is fixed... I'm actually wanting to buy a premium tank, but there's no FUKCING way they're getting my money while they disrupt any possibility to play with my friends!

Dear Wargaming,

   

        Could I please platoon with my friends again?  That'd be great.

 

Thank you.

I am hoping this is helpful debugging information, but I am not sure if anyone working on this bug even reads the forums or would get this debugging information. I created a Ticket for this as well.

 

Previous System:

AMD A10-5700 Processor w/ Radeon HD 7660D, 12GB mem, ATI Radeon E6760 Discrete Graphics Card, Windows 7 Home Premium

 

Back in 9.18, I occasionally encountered the bug, but only right after login for about 30-60 seconds. Then worked fine.

When 9.19 came out, was totally broken and never loads.

I clicked on Contacts and went out to lunch, 1:30 later, the "Connecting..." was still showing and spinning.

 

I got a new computer:

Intel NUC7i7BNH with i7-7567U and built-in Iris Plus Graphics 850, 16GB mem, Windows 10 Home.

So nothing like old one.

 

Fresh install of OS

Fresh install of WoT ( the first program downloaded and installed on it)

Same problem.

 

Up to 2 days ago, several people in my Clan were having the intermittent problem but friends list would work after a minute or two.

For last 2 days, no one I know has a working Contacts list. so this seems to be broken for everybody now.

 

This shows to me that it has nothing to do with the client side, and everything to do with the Server Side.

 

As someone mentioned earlier, I downloaded WOT Assistant on both Android and iOS devices

On the Andriod, the friend's list came up immediately (within 10 seconds)

On the Apply iPad, all reports seem to take a few seconds, including getting the friends list, but it does come up within 60 seconds.

 

This shows me access to the database, and that these contacts are associated with me is working outside the game client itself.

 

So this means that either the game client itself is not accessing the database correctly and this needs to be a patch to the game, or that the database it not honoring requests from the game client.

 

Perhaps get people that wrote "WOT Assistant" to help work on this bug, since their code seems to access it fine.

 

Consequences of this bug:

1. I have not been invited to any competitions, stronghold battles, platoons.

2. I cannot send messages to other players (to congratulate them on good work, not to complain)

3. I must initiate platoons, but ONLY to people whose contact list is working.

4. I cannot do Platoon missions unless I get someone in game to accept an invite.

5. We have to get people on chat comms and "count-in" together and hope to get into the same battle on the same side, to form a platoon. This has taken on average 3-4 matches to pick up 1 person, and 8-10 to get all 3 together. And if anyone drops, we have to start over.

 

Interestingly, I didn't realize how much I platoon (at least half my games per day) and how much frustration this bug has caused.

I really want to move onto some other game, even WoT Blitz, but I have over 400 days of premium time left that doesn't translate over to WoT Blitz

I would expect some compensation of added premium days back once this is fixed, or suspend decrementing premium days until it is fixed.

 

I hear that EU is not having this bug?

Seriously Wargaming, I have worked at, and run software companies, and have never seen a "Level 1 Bug" last more than 2 days. This bug is over 1 month old now.

 

Thank you if you read through this posting.

Chuck

Seriously, this is a big issue for me. I usually play with a buddy daily. We haven't been able to for weeks. Neither of us can access the chat server. We both bought annual premium time... what a waste of money.

Chat and contact bugs that have been present now for almost a month, are totally unforgivable. The system was ALREADY primitive as hell, and now it is just broken.

A month of broken chat.  I have to assume this problem is strictly NA, surely they would fix it if they cared.

WOT Team can you please repair the contact list not populating it is getting really bad and has been happening for months, basically paid account or not it just starts working randomly or not at all (not at all it the regular status). Me and about 10 friends play together but hate to have to call their house when I want them to play with. I usually see them online and contact them (wow cant do that any more)

The patch they put out worked for ONE DAY...now its happening again. WTH is going on? It would seem like a simple debug to me.

I do not understand what they do all day at WOT,  Maybe they sit around a table clicking a counter while reading the comments until enough people are pissed off that they deem it enough of a problem for them get of their asses and fix what THEY broke.  Two days ago my contacts list worked and I thought: AT LONG LAST THEY FIXED THIS DAMN THING. Even though it showed half of my clan with another clans tags. And then I returned to the game in the morning and POOF, the contacts are broken AGAIN.

Maybe their computer tech guys are like the ones they hire at BEST BUY and are self taught with NO FORMAL COMPUTER TRAINING.  Therefore they have absolutely no idea of what they are doing.  Kinda like a toddler trying to  put a round peg in a square hole, just keep hammering at it until it fits.

Seriously, if I did as [edited]of a job as Wargamings, I would find myself looking for another job.  

Please, quit making different tanks, quit screwing up tanks after they are put into service so to speak and fix what is broken BEFORE moving on.  How about some different maps,
