Bug vs Technical Issue Examples


  • Something has probably broken for many players if not all players in the game.
  • The issue is caused by a problem in the game code or files.

Examples of Bugs:

  • An enemy goblin attacks twice in a turn.
  • Everytime you equip a specific item (eg, runic boots) the game stops working.
  • A spell is not working as described. Eg, a spell says it will transform blue gems to red gems, but instead transforms blue gems into yellow gems.

Technical Issues:

  • The game crashes.
  • You receive an error message.
  • There’s a connection issue or lag.
  • The issue probably only affects your account or device.

Examples of Technical Issues:

  • Can’t connect to game chat
  • Can’t play because of Error 01101:There is a problem trying to connect to the server

Screenshot or image
If you are on a console simply take a photo using another device. A video is preferred. Try uploading to YouTube Privately.

What you were expecting to happen, and what actually happened
This is simply what you were trying to do and what happened instead. Example:
‘I was trying to start an Arena battle, but Gems of War loaded Broken Spire quest instead!’

How often does this happen? When did it begin happening?
Was this a once-off bug or has it been a consistent issue? Does it only happen after doinga particular game mode?

Steps to make it happen again
Do you know how to make this happen? Sometimes there are certain steps that can lead to a problem that may not be obvious!
Example: I lose once in the Dungeon.
I then exit to the world map.
I then enter the Tavern before returning to the Dungeon menu.
I choose to fight in the Dungeon again and get taken back to the Tavern instead of a battle starting.
