Technical Support

3d 17/10 - Collection Issues We are aware of issues affecting Collections for players including white card art, missing deck lists, and more. We are working on a resolution and hope to have a fix in place for this soon. In the meantime, temporarily changing your language in the Blizzard App from English (UK) to English (US) will resolve any display issues in the Collection. 1. Click on the Blizzard Logo > Settings in the app. 2. Select Game Settings and locate Hearthstone in the list. 3. Under Text & Spoken Language, select English (US) and click Done. 4. Your client will download a small language update. Once complete, the Play button will be available. We'll update this thread once the issue has been resolved and affected players can return their language back to English (UK). Our apologies for the inconvenience, and we hope to have it resolved soon!Glaxigrav0 3d
11 Oct CROWDS on Twitter - Episode IV: A New Season Following the success of this community-based support initiative, we've decided to kick off another season leading up into BlizzCon at the start of November. Like last time, players will have a chance to sign up for CROWDS, an Android-based app tied to our Twitter channels, enabling them to see and respond to questions and calls for help from fellow members of the community. Just like with our technical and customer support forums, our goal is to provide a platform for exchanging additional advice, which should be particularly helpful for players experiencing problems outside the business hours of our social media teams. Regardless of whether you're a veteran helper or are just now considering to join the ranks, we'd love to see you contribute to our Twitter channels! Like last time, there will be prizes for the best helpers. Helping other players can feel rewarding on its own, but if you manage to shine, you may also be eligible for a free BlizzCon Virtual Ticket, delivered just in time to enjoy live coverage from all stages, on-demand replays and epic bonus loot for our games! If you have already purchased your Virtual Ticket, or would rather receive something else rather than watching BlizzCon (b-but ... it's going to be awesome! we promise! D:), you may also be eligible to choose from one of the following: Hearthstone: Card Packs (x7) Heroes of the Storm: Loot Chests (x12) Overwatch: Loot Boxes (x11) StarCraft II: Nova Covert Ops Mission Pack StarCraft II: Co-op Commanders (pick any 2 and/or share with a friend) StarCraft II: Announcers (pick any 2 and/or share with a friend) For details on CROWDS and how to use the app, be sure to check out our support site article.

17 Feb Ending Support for Windows XP and Vista Starting October 24th of this year, we will begin the process of ending support for Windows XP and Windows Vista in World of Warcraft, StarCraft II, Diablo III, Hearthstone, and Heroes of the Storm. Microsoft ceased mainstream support for these versions of Windows in 2009 and 2012, respectively, but since a decent portion of our audience was still using them at the time, we continued supporting them. However, there have been three major Windows releases since Vista, and at this point, the vast majority of our audience has upgraded to one of the newer versions. After these older operating systems are no longer supported, the games will not run on them, so we encourage any players who are still using one of the older OSes to upgrade to a newer version. We’ll be rolling out this change on a staggered schedule and will post further notices as we get closer to making the change for each game.Radathryl0 17 Feb

7h Hearthstone gets STUCK LOADING when you want to play This problem is been ongoing since midnight GMT+1 You can open Hearthstone but when you want to play, it stays stuck on LOADING. You can see the circle moving around but NOTHING happens. I am using windows 10 - have super fast cable connection! Tried the language trick but this did NOT work!

Here is an image with this error : In Administrative events it says "Display driver nvlddmkm stopped responding and has successfully recovered." Event ID 4101 ; Source : Display.

But in Hearthstone, when this error occurs the game is unplayable and i have to close it ( the Blizzard app too) and start it again.kalec0 12h
13h Sincere Thanks to Technical Support The main issue is about Heathstone. I really wish to contact a real member or a person from Blizzard to say my lovely thanks and appreciation. There are many ways to give feedback eventhough i am just a simple player. Today i played hours of Hearthstone because of lovely warning and breaking news on Blizzard App. The message is like following : "If you are having collection issues (white card art, missing deck list, etc.) temporarily update your language within the app from English (UK) to English (US). " After many of my trials , that was quite impossible for me to play. Anyway I thought that i need to share my successful attempts with Blizzard. I hope someone will share my happiness about today. I really wish to take at least an email directly from Blizzard. Nowadays people escape from congratulation messages. Good luck for the rest of Europe server and other English (UK) users.NightSoluman4 13h

23h Performance issues on iPad after the latest update Ever since the new update, there is poor performance (choppy/frame rate drops) in certain situations and the game is very laggy. 1. The animation when getting arena rewards is very laggy. When the animation ends, the whole game remains slightly choppy until force quit and restart. 2. Certain battlefields make the gameplay laggy throughout the whole match on that field. So far these are: Karazhan, Gadgetzan and Un'Goro. Others run smoothly. Device is iPad with iOS 11 (the previous version ran smoothly on the same device and system).matronator1 23h

1d Hearthstone is choppy and laggy For a while now my hearthstone has felt choppy and freezes/spikes randomly. This occurs in the menus and while in game, it is only a slight lag spike or frame delay but it really ruins the feel of the game making it almost unbareable to play. Any ideas on how to fix this?

1d [Linux] Hearthstone crashes after new update. Since this morning, the keeps crashing after it loads some seconds. The window is black and nothing more happens, then its gone. Thanks to i got the loading screen back, however the game still crashes right before the loading screen should end. App and game are running in english(us) Running ubuntu 16.04 wine-staging 2.18DerEngel6 1d
1d Game starts without me This happened to me more than once lately: I start a game. The funny opponent search animation starts and then, while it is still running, I hear the opponent hero's battle cry. The game finally loads and I'm already roped, but the game still asks me if I want to mulligan. Clicking on cards does nothing and I can only accept. Then, my hero battle cry animation happens (while the rope keeps running) and then Malchezaar animation (I'm roped out at this point). I start the game and I've not mulliganed and I also lost a turn. Losing arena games like that is not fun. Another thing that happens: I have a disconnection, but the game freezes (blurred out) instead of trying to restart the game. I have to close the instance of the game and start it again. Also not fun.Zachiel0 1d

18h Card Mechanic I have found a card mechanic, that I think needs looking at. Baron Gedden When played with Jaina, Frost Lich. and Baron Geddon is added to an almost full board. When he deals to 2pts of damage to all. It adds the damage as life steal. While it was great for me at the time, it does seem to be over powering. Let me know what you think VykosVykos2 18h
