As the title says, myself, my dad, and MANY OTHERS are UNABLE to load our friend list. It just sits there loading and loading and never connects. I have NOT changed a thing and according to other players, I talked to in-game, their having the SAME issue and said it's been going on for weeks on end.

I have had the bug since shortly after 9.17. It's not been constant because micro-patches have fixed it temporarily now and again, but the issue first came about for me around that time. It started with my blacklist not working and developed into platoon invitations not working. Now both the Friend's List and the blacklist do not function, clan invitations and platoon invitations also do not connect. 

 

The bonus to this bug is that after a match, my angry teammates or overly irritated enemies cannot private message me after a battle to complain because the PM System is also effected lol

 I know this sounds like a stupid question do they know and are they trying to fix it? I mean yay no stupid messages from angry players who can't play when you can, lol, but now my dad and I can't team up or even my viewers for my twitch stream can't team up either! Ever since they changed the arty, this game has started to have a bad time and I fear for it because I do love this game. I just wish they'd fix everything already and quit making us wait!

Yes they know about it and they say they are trying to fix it but at this stage it would seem its either unfixable or its a very low priority which is a great pity because players seem to be just walking away from the game now it,s like its the last straw for lot,s of players

The easiest explanation at this point is that WG is trying to kill the NA servers.

 

Think about it... WG can't reasonably just shut them down with minimal notice seeing as players have bought yearly paid services, but if they could somehow manage to get players to never subscribe again they could easily just shut down almost any time. If you recall, there was a big sale on Premium time last fall. This was the last push to get some cash (along with a few Premium vehicles released shortly afterwards, but those were available on all servers) before starting to slow down the cogs here in North America.

 

It's all very crafty, if you ask me. :-)

That wouldn't make any sense, that's a whole customer base they be losing. I don't want to assume anything without facts first! So let's stick to those and go from there.

They installed a patch KNOWING that it would muck up the friends list, yes this really happened!

It might make sense when they are planning on splitting the NA server into north (N. America) and south (S. America). This has been on the table for awhile now.

Your statement that this problem is going on for a few weeks is incorrect.

The contact list/ chat issue is going on two month now!!! Smile-angry.gif

Quite the opposite, though. WarGaming is the participant being rude in this case by not updating its customers on the progress of a much needed server update. If a representative was actually active a few times a week providing updates for us, there really wouldn't be all this backlash - sure, there would still be some, but not nearly as much as there is now.

 

It's very simple. Talk to us. Give us updates. Tell us what is being done. Silence is not a solution.

All I know is that 48 years ago mankind put a man on the moon.  The Apollo spacecraft had less computing power than the average smartphone.  But we can't make the contact list operate in 2017........    I think this problem could be solved if wargaming cared enough to solve it.  I have a premium account and play the game because I enjoy platooning with friends and have not been able to for some time now.  I mean really wargaming, just get it done.

You do realize you can create a chat room, with or without a password, and tell your friends to join the said chat room. And then you can platoon up from there. Spend half as much time looking for a solution to a problem rather than complaining. The latter doesn't really accomplish much anyways :P 

 

Enjoy :playing:

Has anyone posted any help tickets letting WG know we're having this issue? I was going to do one myself.
