Summoners, due to a technical issue, this week's series of Alliance Quests will be cancelled at 4pm PT. There will not be any Rewards for this series. The next series of Alliance Quests will start on April 18 at 12pm PT. We will be assessing the impact on Alliances and compensating accordingly, as well as returning Alliance Tickets.

Global Chat the new default? [Merged Threads]

Updated this morning and have noticed that every time I restart the game the chat defaults back to Global. Normally it would just start with whichever chat room I was last using (AQ, AW, or Alliance). Is this intended?

Samsung Galaxy S9+, latest software. Updated MCOC today.

    I hate this as well. Another thing they messed with that didn't need touching. Why, why???

    When opening the game, it defaults to the Global Chat and you can't swipe left to Alliance chat, AQ chat, or AW chat, until Global Chat is tapped and closed. Pre April 1, 2019 update, the game opened to the last chat you were in when you exited the app.

    You can't tell in the video, but from 0:22 to 0:25, I was swiping the chat bar and nothing was happening:

    I had to re-disable it. Global is a disgusting place anyways. Just go in setttings and disable.

    Mine is defaulting to global as well. To add to this, the "War Room" chat is gone at the startup. Have to switch modes a few times (go into alliance war map, go to aq map, back home, etc) for it to finally show back up.

    Hi all,

    We are looking into this issue with Global Chat being set to default.

    This started with the April update last night....I noticed after the update the chat setting had changed to Global. I thought no big deal so i changed it back to Alliance level. Since I did that I have had to change it back to Alliance level twice. Really annoying. i don't need all the noise of people trying to sell me cheap units.

    I was wondering if it's a normal thing for everyone's game to default to global chat right now and if there is a way to change it if so. This can create a kind of big problem because some people like to spoil the new movies on global. In particular I can remember like a week before Guardians 2 came out some guy kept popping up on global just to say "Yondu dies".

    I've stayed away from global for a couple weeks right around the release of the new MCU movies since then and if I can't do anything about the game automatically defaulting to global chat in the weeks coming up I'll just have to quit playing for a bit, which won't be good for my alliance.

    Is this an issue for anyone else?

    Just disable global chat in settings

    Doesn't help. Still defaults to it. Understand the problem.

    I'm so glad that I can disable Global Chat...hopefully it works...with Endgame and GoT coming I gotta stay away from those SPOILER peeps...

    I finally disabled global. Was annoying seeing the low life's constantly spamming my screen.

    The issue with disabling Global is that you can't "swipe" it away.

    Game starts up, global as the default but it's disabled, then you have to open chat to manually switch it to something else.

    Still unchanged...
