We have received reports regarding this issue over the last few days and we are currently looking into it further.
Apologies for the annoyance this has caused.
How many realms are still having this issue? In the thread some players are mentioning a 25 minute delay which is crazy.
My real ID is almost always laggy, but it only takes a few seconds as Selexin mentioned. I cant believe some servers are playing without chat...? lol. Thats so weird. It must be awful.
Was it the normal chat or only Battle.net/Friends chat?
I experienced delay on whispering b.net friends but not in /g /s /y or /1-3 and it was like a 2 minute delay
Only lasted for about 5 hours, one evening.

On Firemaw it can be pretty bad.
Had chat delay up to 15 minutes and that includes DBM messages sadly. Also you get spammed with error messages once you leave a group 'player no longer in group / raid'.
Because we are a DKP guild, we needed to bid in discord as for the last 2 raids servers were to slow.
Hope they fix it soon.
I was on all weekend on Fairbanks and didn't see anything like this. The battletag messaging has its normal 1-2 second lag, but everything else was as quick as always.
Our server did crash twice tonight within a couple hour span, but no chat lag here.
They should honestly give some kind of compensation for this like they did back in the day due to these issues. Extra days of game time or whatever.

I remember guild chat specifically having a long delay.
Yeah we had 25-35 minute delays during our raids on Firemaw, I more or less just raid-log now if there is no guild groups forming for anything on discord..
