It no longer fades out when there is no incoming text.
"We're merging you with US servers. Your gameplay experience will be abysmal, but you'll have higher populations!"
"But we play at entirely different times."
"Doesn't matter. Our metrics will show higher populations."

Just go back into preferences then select chat, adjust the chat panel alpha to something other than it is, apply, put back to what it was, apply, sorted

Mess with the alpha settings (ESC, settings) as the settings doesn't seem to stick at first.

Actually I'm afraid that didn't sort it totally. The text never fades if it doesn't update. So if I'm in guild chat and noone says anything, after a while the text fades out too. This no longer happens.

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.

It reverts back after a loading screen though, well at least for me and a few others I've seen in general chat

Evidently there was a drastic issue with the way it was working prior to this morning. If not, why was it changed?

Mythic Devs (aka idiots) - there is enough wrong with the game that needs fixing that you don't need to create more.

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
