XMPP Sunset

Greetings Adventurers,

As of September 19th, 2019, Neverwinter will no longer be supporting connection to our internal chat system via an XMPP client. While this feature was interesting and often convenient, it also unfortunately makes it easier for gold spammers and others to reach our chat system. Allowing access via an XMPP client also creates several technical challenges that make it difficult to keep our in-game chat safe and smooth. At this time, we don’t have any plans to replace this with a different service.

Please feel free to discuss this change in this thread, and let us know any further questions. We will be updating this thread with any additional notices or clarifications as needed.

    Does this mean player-made channels are going away?

    I believe it just means you can't use a third-party chat client (I've used Trillian in the past) to access chat channels.

    Shame, I was hoping it will be more available and not closed. Sunset after sunset...

    Though I wonder, with having it require a gold (or whatever) membership in STO / Champions, which costs a couple of hundred USD and limited to private channels and guilds, how gold sellers used this feature..

    I think Sto Players might be more upset about this. Going by the thread made by Kael on the sto forums. I don't have livetime sub on CO or Sto so I've never used the feature.
