Error msg

Receive the error message: “Disconnected from server: nonexisting_channel” after each kick.

Hi @LordSmultis, are you still encountering this error now?

yes, just happened again 5 min ago. I have found out that doing a complete restart of my computer will resolve the issue. Just closing the game isn’t enough. It appears to happen if I am playing, then close out the game. If I open the game a 2nd time without restarting the error will occur every time.
