Just started having this problem. Restarts, power restarts, and the like do not solve the issue. 2 month old problem, would appreciate a solution.

CCP Dropbear: rofl

edit: ah crap, dev account. Oh well, official rofl at you sir.

Here is what i get http://i49.tinypic.com/148ymq.jpg

This has been replicated inadvertently by me and my flat mate when our Router decided to go down. Now we cant reopen any chat channels. The only chat channels that seem to work is fleet and local channel.
I have rebooted machine, Run the repair tool for the client!, Cleared all the cache and settings and still no joy!

Mal: "Politely."

If your going to break a chat channel why cant it be local?

All automated intel should be removed from the game including Instant local/jumps/kills/cynos for all systems/regions.Eve should report nothing like this to the client/3rd party software.Intel should not be force fed to players. Player skill and iniative should be the sources of intel.

Did nothing, logged in again an hour later and got corp chat back...

Don't bother doing anything to fix the problem, random bug is random... All this messing with things to fix it is a placebo, the only people who can actually fix it for everyone is CCP.

So for whatever reason this bug apparently causes my computer to lock up when I turn on my dedicated GPU.

How the **** does that even happen?

I have the same server node message is dead above.

1. Cleared Cache.
2. Deleted all Client Updates out of the eve program directory (several GB worth FYI).
3. Ran Repair Tool

Repair tool DELETED a folder (didn't catch the name), and then said that the client had been repaired.

So I logged back into game and the Chat Channels were still missing.

I opened up Chat Button on the Neocom to re-join the channels, and all the missing channels have their 'JOIN' buttons missing!

After waiting several minutes, and attempting to log back in, the 'Join' Buttons were back in the Neocom window and clickable. I was then able to re-join my chat windows. Wierd Bug! :-(

I had to reboot my pc to get my corp and alliance chat back. I rejoined my player channels and logged off and the error came back. I had to once again reboot my PC and left the player channels alone. So far I haven't had the issue again.

Hey everyone!

We appear to be having some technical issues tonight manifesting in the loss of chat channels. As is often the case with issues such as these, it appears re-logging the client will fix the issue for you. Please let us know in this thread if that doesn't solve the issue for you.

Our engineers are burning the midnight oil trying to look for the cause of the issue. Our sincere apologies for the trouble.


Multiple attempts to relog, reboot, and even fly and dock several solar systems away have not fixed the issue for me. Please advise.
