Chat not loading?

I'm just wondering if anyone else is having this problem or if it's just me, but chat doesn't load when I log it. It won't even let me add a lobby or search for a friend to PM.

Hi Jaden-Redling,

 

Are you on a Mac device by any chance? We have posted a temporary work-around for this issue for Mac users, which I'll quote here:

 

The development team is currently investigating permanent solutions to the chat/lobby issues on Macs. They have found that a common issue seems to stem from the Thunderbolt Ethernet Bridge feature, which can be temporarily disabled to allow regular play of the TCG Online. Here is a brief overview and the temporary workaround for this issue:

 

What is the Thunderbolt Ethernet Bridge?

It is a way to network two Macs together directly via a Thunderbolt cable.

 

 

Do I need this if I'm connected via Ethernet?

No. This only effects your ability to directly connect two Macs together. If you are using this functionality you will need to undo the workaround to restore this functionality by switching network locations.

 

 

How do I disable the Thunderbolt Ethernet Bridge?

- Open up System Preferences.

- Click on Network.

- Under location click 'Edit Locations..'

- Click the '+' symbol to create a new location.

- Give the location a name and click Done.

- Select 'Thunderbolt Network Bridge'

- Press the [-] button to remove it.

- Click the gear icon and select 'Manage Virtual Interfaces'

- Select 'Thunderbolt Bridge'

- Click the [-] button to remove it. Confirm even though it is in use.

- Click Done.

- Click Apply.

 

 

PLEASE NOTE: Switching to a network location that has the bridge active will cause the issue to re-occur. To switch back:

- Open up System Preferences.

- Click on Network.

- Select the bridge-less connection.

- Click the gear icon and select 'Manage Virtual Interfaces'

- Select 'Thunderbolt Bridge'

- Click the [-] button to remove it. Confirm even though it is in use.

- Click Done.

- Click Apply.

 

If this doesn't apply to you, please let us know and we'll explore other possible fixes. :)

 

Thanks for your patience!
