just did the update and originally there was no access to the chat. I could see a number 1 in a circle, but there was no tab to click on to get to the chat. Chat came back after a few minutes, but I can't see anyone else chatting or whether they are online or not. Deja Vu all over again!
I did the update b/c I could visit some towns, but not all, which usually means players are updating.
This really is a waiting game sometimes.
