<p>Please allow us to use Guild chat while in a BG, I Non stop que for BG's so my guild has no idea that im even online. Would be nice to know if we decide to do something that I can actually see it. Thanks</p>

<p>Yea, theres alota things that could use some attention, it essentially logs u out and puts in some server in limbo so that u can play w/ ppl from another server.</p><p>That makes alota thigs hard, like ui settings, key bindings, groups (u get disbanded form ur grp when u get out if u had a premade one)</p><p>Some things that could have been resolved in test if they decided to test....</p>

<p>You are actually leaving the regular server cluster when you transfer to a seperate server, the Battleground server. Technically, your guild doesn't exist on the Battlegrounds server... The reason it logs you in and out is because you aren't on the main play server. Your character literally gets transfered back and forth between servers.</p>

<p>only issue with the chat channel idea is that the pvp servers cannot communicate to other servers...i'm assuming this also means no communication with the BG server. So people on pvp servers would be cut off.</p>

Im sure they wsay its a database issue, becuse everything is a database issue, but maybe they could pretend for a minute that they all have computer science degrees <img src="/smilies/69934afc394145350659cd7add244ca9.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>

<p>Cross-world chat for your guild is something we plan on working on in the near future.  Yes, we have cross-world tells and channels, but the guild channel is not one of them.  The problem is solvable, but will take some time. </p><p>We'd also like to make it easier to know when a guild member is logged in but on a battlegrounds world.  Since he isn't actually connected to the home world, this would require some significant effort but its something we want to work on.</p><p>We've been aware of these issues and many others, but they were not part of the feature set planned for an initial battlegrounds release.</p>

<p>If we could give a persistent channel invite for the guild chat channel, it would allow both for battlegrounds and for untagged guild allies; invite them once and they'll be set. This would be a very happy thing for many guilds <img src="/smilies/3b63d1616c5dfcf29f8a7a031aaa7cad.gif" border="0" alt="SMILEY" /></p>
