… and much chatting goodness ensued.
It’s not all blathering roses. The timestamps disappear when you zone, it seems, and have to be toggled off and back on. There may be other minor weirdnesses. HOWEVER….
Chat scrolls! (Cue heavenly light and choirs of angels, that’s how much this means to me.) It scrolls marvellously, reliably, and whenever something happens that should make it scroll. Chat text doesn’t break up over several silly, non-scrolling lines. Or at least, none of those things that bother me beyond all reason happened in the few hours I played this afternoon.
Properly scrolling chat text is win. I’d have Mythic’s babies if I hadn’t already got other ovarian plans.
Also, the whole chat window is somehow more responsive and crisper. Maybe that was just my state of heightened happiness, but I do think they somehow cleaned it up. Lovely job.
Oh yeah, and they made some other changes, I guess. The patch notes are here, as if you hadn’t already found that link on 12 million other blogs. And if you hadn’t seen them yet, what rock are you hiding under? Got a spare room?
