*Note: This is NOT regarding the old, well-known 'party leader bug' where a party entirely loses it's leader and must re-group to get one back.*
We have just encountered a major bug wherein my husband's character is completely unable to be promoted to group leader. There is no visible error, the crown and leadership simply does not pass to him when we try. He also cannot invite other players to a group - they receive the invitation, but the game tells them that they cannot join the group.
This persists even after game restart, system restart, after time has passed, and after many attempts to create new groups. His alternate characters can still become group leaders, so it is a character specific bug.
I've read other people having this issue and that there is no fix. Devs, is there a fix for this problem? It's a major issue if you're supposed to be a 12-person Trial leader.
