Can't Purchase Gems


I don’t even get that far m8, I just get stuck with the infinite loading circle. I don’t have this issue in other blizzard games, literally just hots because they made some fancy new payment screen instead of just keeping the old one.


Hey there everyone!

I’d love to get some additional help in trouble shooting this issue!

@Vorphea - Would you mind seeing if switching display modes between Windowed, Windowed (Fullscreen), or Fullscreen causes any change in what you are seeing? Additionally, are there any other in-game browser that are not displaying properly. You can test this by going to the Ranked tab under Play and clicking on the Leaderboards.

@Grobster - Would you be able to do us a favor and email us some log files? You can find those files in your Documents at this directory Heroes of the Storm\Support\BlizzardBrowser\logs. You can follow the steps listed in the thread at the top of this forum called BUG ATTACHMENT GUIDELINES

Thanks a lot for your help!


Hello. I have some problem as
Vorphea. I try to switch display mode to Windowed/ Windowed (Fullscreen)/ Fullscreen. Not help. Than i try enter to Ranked games and click Leaderboards - same problem there. Everything worked fine just 2 weeks ago - i bought some gems with no problem


Same issue as above.

Switched display mode, didn’t do anything, also tried the leaderboard and just got the constant load symbol.

Thanks so much for your help!


Same issue, nothing from topic resolved it, nothing new was found to fix it?


Having the same issue, tried the ranked leaderboard and that won’t load either.


Same for me. Endlessly spins when I click on the amount of gems I want to buy, never loads into payment methods or anything. Same thing for Ranked Leaderboards. No other issues in the game.


Has a fix for this been found? I’m getting the endless loading circle as well when I attempt to purchase gems.


I am having the same issue, except mine just spins for a sec, then reverts back to the gem selections :frowning:


I’d really like to spend my money, guess blizzard doesn’t want it.


I am having this exact same issue…


Same Issue as well. Click on amount get a spinning loading icon briefly on a new overlay then it closes out like nothing happend. Leaderboards fail to work as well


agreed ,i try to go to the support but dont cant do anything


looks like they arent interested in solving this


Hello again everyone!

Thanks for sending in those logs!

We identified a loading icon issue in the initial purchase window and released a hotfix on 8/14 in the Heroes 47.1 patch.

This fix uncovered a new issue where the purchasing window fails to load. We are currently testing a potential fix for this issue and hope to release it as soon as we can.

Thanks for your patience, and apologies for the inconvenience!

Thank you,


Hello everyone.

Thank you again for your patience on this matter. We have identified 3 separate issues that has caused the black screen rendering issue on the Gem purchase dialog. We’re currently testing the fix and it will be released with the upcoming major patch.

Once the patch goes out, I would really appreciate if you leave any feedback so that we can further assist you.

Thank you,


Thanks for letting us know that you’ve fixed it! Hopefully this didn’t affect the purchase numbers too much. Would’ve liked to spend some gems too!
So I’m guessing that patch will come out on PTR the coming Monday and then go live the week after (the week of the 23rd of September), right?


It still isn’t fixed for me and I REALLY want to buy Cabbie Big Shot Sgt. if this isn’t fixed by the time these skins are gone I’ll be really ticked.
