:arrow_forward: ISSUE EXPERIENCED

:point_down: DESCRIBE THE ISSUE IN DETAIL (below). LIMIT TO ONE BUG PER THREAD.

Since update #66692 the game chat locks the game after keyboard arrows are pressed. Sometimes it already starts locked. You can’t type anymore and you can’t go out of the chat with the escape key. You have to pick the mouse and click outside of the chat area. After that you can type again.

This bug has already been reported. But the threads were deleted under the argument that the bug was already being adressed. If it was the case, i don’t see why deleting the threads would help anything. But it’s not even added to the “List of unfixed bugs” and was not fixed in the last update #71094.

Repeating only this part in case it wasn’t read:
