Hey Everyone,

I've created this list below to keep track of various issues that players have reported in the Bugs & Technical Issues thread. This will be a continuously modified list, with no specific update time. In order to keep details organized, this thread will also be locked.

This post is NOT an area for players to report bugs. This is merely a status list of existing ones that have already been reported. If you would like to report a new issue, please start a thread, and Tombstone and I will address it when we can. Thank you for understanding
