Under investigation. For workarounds see 'fixing the problem' below.

The issue:

You may be experiencing a blank global chat which says 'None' or appears black or you might be unable to connect to chat altogether. Selecting the green arrow or 'Settings' button on the chat does not do anything and this can happen on any platform. 

Fixing the problem

Here's a few things you can try to resolve the issue:

  1. If you're able to open the chat settings follow the steps in this article here to connect to chat channel 001 (or the first channel of the language of your choosing)
  2. Close (not just minimise) Gems of War and turn your router on and off at the wall
  3. XBox players can adjust Privacy Settings > Communication & multiplayer > Others can communicate with voice, text, or invites (Friends): change this to 'Allow' or Everybody
  4. Reinstall the game (ensure you account is linked first)
  5. Check if TCP Ports 9933 and 8080 are locked and try to unblock these ports
    • For instructions see this article here
    • You can also contact your ISP (Internet Service Provider) for help with this 
  6. If none of these steps work please contact Gems of War Support
