It's fun how ppl are coming in to this thread and have no clue about what is wrong with the chat.
It has no fading issue. It is just highlighted at all time now instead of just bein highlighted when having the mouse cursor over it. PvP players are noticing this more than other players I guess.
Its a mess, even if you fix the alpha it doesn't stick.
Hope the engineer that did this is not Imperial, the punishment for failure being what it is
