  • We’re still resolving issues around in-game chat and expect to have this fixed in an upcoming patch in the very near future.
  • We appreciate everyone’s patience while we uncover progression blocking bugs. We believe we’ve found most of them at this point, if you are still stuck please contact [email protected]
