It is a very sad occasion that prompts me to write this post. The game chat system has glitched and is currently unusable. This is a server-wide glitch, meaning every Aetherlight player is currently affected.
First reported on the forums on September 21, the glitch prevents the sending of chat messages. There is no problem with pulling up a chat bubble and entering text, but upon sending the message, the bubble disappears and nothing happens.
However, typing does bring up the "Message in progress" dot-dot-dot animation above your head. Please keep this in mind if you see other players with the telltale three dots: there are no messages being sent at this time; it isn’t that you just can’t see them. If you have checked your settings and are unable to see others' chat, it is not on your end and is due to the glitch. We are all in the same boat!
Trust God, my friends. I call you all to pray for this game and for its creators and its future. But also, for the will of God to be done, even if it’s not what we want. His way is perfect, He knows all, and He loves us.
I am sending an email to support next. Feel free to do so as well. I will let you know on this topic if I receive any responses.
