I looked through the known issues thread and didn't see or notice this problem.

I can't chat in party, ops, raid and guild chat. If I type in those channels I don't see it and neither does anyone else. And if they type I won't see it. Several in game have said they are experiencing the same problems but I don't see it on the list of issues.

I reported it in game but I don't think a human even looked at it because I got no reply with any instructions on how to fix it. It seemed just a generic message that was never looked at by human eyes.

It's quite annoying to not see any chat other than general and whispers. It makes grouping difficult because I will never see what someone types nor will they ever see what I type. I see no repair tool in the star wars folder or anything and I never turned off any chats. Even if I did they would still be able to see me and they can't so that isn't the problem.

It's been several days now, and I would appreciate some help.

Im having the same problem. For the past 3 days now i have not been able to chat in guild or party.
I submitted a ticket and i got a response rather quickly (20 mins or so) and all it said was issue resolved via e-mail, so i go check my email and there is a letter explaining that the issues has been passed along to the appropriate team.

How the hell does that resolve the issue. and your right, i see alot of people complaining in game and on the forums about this but its not listed in the Known Issues sticky.

grouping sucks cus there is no coordination, at least i cant see if there is cus i cant see party chat.

I had this issue once... I just went into preferences , went to the chat tab, de-selected all the options (global, group, etc.) hit aply, re-selected them all and hit apply again and it fixed it for me... haven't had the issue again

see if that helps

^ It doesnt for most people. Leaving and renjoining group also doesnt. It expanded for me from party chat to general chat....

I've had this bug for over a week now. I have to quit and re-join my guild several times a day to be able to see the chat. Party chat is almost always screwed up aswell. This is such BS

I've got this issue too, it will start out working (sometimes) then randomly stop working. Or, I will log in with this issue not working and nothing I do will fix it. It sucks
