Why is Trade & General Chat Down?

We pay to play this game and having Blizzard just make big brother changes and stupid foul ups does not give us what we pay for. It almost seems to me like Blizzard turned chat off because too many Mages were selling ports. This necessary function in the game must be fixed right now. How can you have a social community when you disable communication? This is an outrage that you would even allow the game to be up without taking it down for a hotfix to have this problem resolved.

I demand that chat be brought back up immediately.

I think it should be said you are in no position to demand anything.

What does him being a Mage have to do with his post?

You all do know having an old version of skillscore installed will block your chats right?

Umm, he was probably "one of the too many mages selling ports"

I can demand anything I want, now for Blizzard to act on it is another thing. This is a vital and very essential part of the game for everyone. To disable chat and make it so people have to yell to announce anything is utterly stupid. For you to think that Blizzard as a business can do anything they want without losing customer is funny. Blizzard Entertainment has to report to shareholders about loss/gain of revenue. The recent tactics of changing things without any consulting of the community and disabling chat for no reason will lead to some that leave and even more if it continues. For you as a player to think you voice means nothing tells me you must come for a very uneducated background.

Yep.I always hated those and see them constantly.I would enjoy some of the enjoyable or great discussions that could occur within the chat though.The trolls and scammers are irritating to see but trade is a great way for some to make some gold and for some discussions.

This is likely addon-related. That's been the typical issue when people have had chat problems since the patch. Gearscore has been a big culprit, though there have been others.

Blizzard doesn't make addons or support them. Try disabling all of them and see if that fixes it.

Oh, I didn't see that part. After all this time on the forums, I really just skim.

I was unaware that Gearscore an addon that was widely used caused this. I've disabled GS and chat is now working. At least someone of the forums was able to help me, while the ticket in game is still open. While I'm not happy they just made it so you can't use GS, I can understand the reason. Though GS should not disable your chat function.

Thank you Rexferal!

Ok, I'll bite. You're saying that if I think my voice means nothing, I'm uneducated? Nope, I KNOW my voice means nothing. My CASH means everything, You know the saying that the pen is mightier than the sword? Well, Cash is mightier than voice. Anyone that has cash will be heard. Just look as the TSA stories all over the internet. With ALL the people complaining, you think anything is going to be done? No. Nothing will be done until we STOP FLYING, thereby not funding the TSA through all the fees we pay on an airline ticket.

You want to be "heard", cancel your account if you're not happy with the game.

I've canceled my account for WOW before because I was not happy with where the game was going. This game as changed to appeal to the masses. When the game started, to end game raid you had to have skill and organization. Now its more about the amount of time you can spend doing it than the skill required to play your character. With that said my game play is about 20% of what it use to be for the first 3 1/2 years.

This has nothing to do with TSA, that is another story that involves the need to profile people according to how they act not race.
