International keyboards have been known to occasionally cause an issue with accessing the in-game chat feature. If you are experiencing this issue, try using the reverse slash key—usually located below the backspace key—on your keyboard to use the chat feature.
If this does not work, you may also follow the steps below to change your keyboard's region settings, which may resolve your issue:
- Open the Start menu
- Open the Control Panel
- Open the "Clock, Language, and Region" tab
- Open "Region and Language"
- Adjust the Format and Location to English and the United States, then apply or hit OK
Please note that while this may resolve your keyboard issue, it may cause other normal programs on your machine to act differently, or have awkward keyboard control.
Why Do I See So Many Hashtags?
When players see hashtags in place of words, this means that the word or phrase was blocked by our filters. If you are seeing a lot of these, this is more than likely due to the registered age on the account. For more information on chat filtering, please click here.
