Use the Chat Command Functions

To do this, simply open up you chatbox in the Main Menu. Then type /invite username in the space and get them to join you. You can also type /join username for the other way around.

Get your Friend to Send you an Invite

There have been reports of players whose Friends lists are functioning normally. If this suits a friend or acquaintance of yours, suggest that they invite you instead. Additionally, you can also have the leader of your party add someone by having them submit a friend request to the person you want to add to the party.

Restart the Game

Restarting your game might help. Make sure you log out of the game completely and then relaunch the client on your PC. Make sure the game is completely exited from consoles before relaunching it as well.

This error typically occurs when a large number of players attempt to log in at once, overwhelming the game servers.

Contact Blizzard Support

If none of the fixes above worked out, you might as well get in touch with Blizzard Customer Support. By reviewing your account’s log files, they can help you permanently fix the “Friends List is Empty” issue. However, this is probably a temporary problem that will be resolved eventually, so most players will just have to bear with it for the time being.
