Broken text chat

Issue Description: The chat window won’t open at all, despite pressing enter, or rebinding it and pressing the new key. Sometimes it will open but will show no messages anyone sends, and sending my own messages makes them disappear, it’s fully broken.

Steps to Reproduce:

  1. Press the Chat Open key either in lobby or in-game
  2. Notice that it either opens and shows nothing and sends nothing, or that it doesn’t open at all
  3. Cry

I also have no text chat, no voice chat, and have not had either since the beta opened.

Two days ago, I crashed, came back and chat actually worked, I could see messages, and send messages myself. The next time I launched the game, it went back to broken and hasn’t worked since. It’s like I have an extremely low chance that chat will work everytime I launch the game, pretty neat feature.

I still don’t have chat at release. I do see other people reporting this issue in the discord. Some get it occassionally to open, and some like me don’t have it at all, or lost it on a particular update.
