Clusters help organise game servers and have a functional reason for games that support clusters.

Clusters - overview

Cluster chatโ€‹

Cluster chat allows players to chat even when they are on different game servers. Not all games support cluster chat. See the features list per game for more information.

By default cluster chat is not enabled. Manage cluster chat settings by clicking Cluster chat in the sidebar menu, on the right.

Clusters - enable cluster chat 1

Enable the Cluster chat switch to enable cluster chat. No game server restarts required.

Clusters - enable cluster chat 2

Global chatโ€‹

Share cluster chat among all clusters by enabling Global chat. This automatically shares the cluster chat messages with the other clusters that have Global chat enabled too.

  • {servername} is replaced with name of server the chat came from
  • {groupname} is replace with name of character's group
