17 Feb Ending Support for Windows XP and Vista Starting later 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
27 Apr 2016 Whispers of the Old Gods Launch - Known Issues Hearthstone on iOS Crashing While Opening Packs Players on an iOS device (iPad, iPhone, iPod, etc) may experience a crash when opening card packs. If you disconnect or crash while opening cards, these cards are automatically added to your Collection and are not lost. We do sincerely apologize for the confusion this causes when reviewing your Collection, and are working on a resolution. In the meantime, players with alternative platforms (PC/Android) can open cards on these devices without worry. If you still are unable to see certain cards, make sure to sort/filter your Collection by Wild format. Filtering by Standard will hide all cards not currently part of Year of the Kraken. C'Thun and Beckoner of Evil Are Not Available After Login Some players may find that after logging in they have not been awarded C'Thun or the Beckoner of Evil cards. Exiting the game and logging back in will grant them to your account - while you may not see a toast notification after logging in, these cards should be present in your Collection. Did Not Receive 3 Free Packs After Logging In In order for players to receive their 3 free Whispers of the Old Gods packs for logging in, they must first complete The Duelist quest. The Duelist is available after completing the Tutorial, and is accomplished by playing 3 games in Play mode. Opening the Friend's List on Mac Causes a Crash This issue is not affecting all Mac users, however select machines are experiencing an issue opening the Friends List resulting in a crash. Our Hearthstone Mac Team is aware and working on a resolution. The Wild/Standard Toggle is Missing on the Play Screen Some players are reporting that after patching, they are unable to see the toggle that should appear between the Ranked/Casual modes in the Play screen for Wild/Standard modes. Players who do not have any Wild cards will not see the toggle. Crafting a Wild format card will cause the toggle to appear. Old Murk-Eye and Captain's Parrot Not Awarded We will be re-enabling the Quests to acquire Old Murk-Eye and Captain’s Parrot starting with the launch of Whispers of the Old Gods in your region. These Quests will be re-enabled until Monday, May 2nd at 08:59 CEST. We expect this to be a one-time only extension for these quests as part of our rollout of the standard and wild formats. If you have met the requirements to acquire Old-Murk Eye and/or Captain’s Parrot and have not yet received your reward, please re-log into Hearthstone after Whispers of the Old Gods goes live in your region to receive them. After the official release of Whispers of the Old Gods, Captain’s Parrot and Old Murk-Eye will only be available through crafting. Please note that since we’re re-enabling the quest, our Support team will no longer be assisting with this, and there is thus no need for you to submit additional Support requests regarding these cards. Edit: Note that Old Murk-Eye and Captain's Parrot are Wild cards. If your Collection is sorted by Standard, these cards will be hidden. Changing the filter to Wild will show them in your Collection.Tiogaradh0 27 Apr 2016

15h The game keeps crashing every time i close it Since the patch relative to the release of Un'Goro and the year of the Mammoth the games inevitably crashes every time i click "Quit Game" on the options menu, making it freeze and forcing me to close it with Task Manager instead of normally closing the program like it used to. It's not a huge problem for a matter of gameplay since it only affects the application and not the game itself, but it is extremely annoying and since it is going on since a while now I think it is time to look into it.Rocket1 15h

15h Bug: Game "freezes" So I was playing a game of Hearthstone, which was coming to an end. He plays a card which makes both of us draw a card, which deals 3 fatigue damage to me. Afterwards he plays another card, only this time it doesn't do anything. Nothing happens, everything just "freezes". He then plays another card, but it won't let me see what this card is. So the two cards ended up hovering over each other, as you can see in the video. As you can see, I also have a spectator. It says that he's in the main menu, which indicates that the game is actually over. He also stops spectating after a while, but it still says he's spectating. He answered me in chat later, but I didn't get that in the recording. Please fix this, somehow. PS: I ended up losing the game, which really sucks. 15h

18h European can't use the Asia server? I'm glad to see u. I am a user who enjoys hearthstone. I have something to ask Blizzard. I understand that the Blizzard account is a global account. so u can create accounts in any country, or u can use other servers. Recently however, I identified the problem. The accounts created in America and Asia are available to all three servers. But in Europe account can't available to Asia surver. They can only use America and Europe survers. I thought it was a temporary error, but I couldn't find a solution to it. This issue has been confirmed since Friday. Exactly, All accounts made in Europe can't connect to Asia Server hearthstone, and can't they access the Asia Blizzard Web site. The accounts made by Friday morning are irrelevant to this problem. If u log on to the Blizzard website in Europe, u will have no ID. And when u connect the hearthstone to a PC in Asia, u see a warning saying, "You can't use the server."If u connect to the mobile Asia surver , ur ID doesn't exist. However, all services are available in other areas. I made dozens of Europe accounts but all of them are blocked. I think Blizzard intentionally prevented the accounts from being able to use the Asian servers in Europe. If it were true, I would like to know why Europe accounts stopped accessing it without notice.Fgh2 18h
19h Unplayable FPS I have read a few technical support topics covering the subject. However none of the troubleshooting supplied has fixed my issue. I have ran a repair, updated my drivers, re-installed the game as well as tried many of the suggestions offered here. This seems to still be a common issue, do we have a solid solution available yet?Adox0 19h

21h Disenchanted cards as new in Collection So, my problem with HS is that whenever I use mass disenchant to get rid of extra cards (3, 4, etc. copies of the same card), after the process cards are shown as new in My Collection - like I just got them. In the past there was no such thing - extra cards got turned into dust and that was all.Merkury5 21h

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? Specs: Processor Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4590 CPU @ 3.30GHz, 3301 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s) Installed Physical Memory (RAM) 8.00 GB Name NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960 Drivers are all up to date. Any help is much appreciated! Thanks.Raptorjesus26 1d
1d Hs stuttering , really slow and unplayable So i have searched for this in lots of posts but didnt find a fix for me. Basically i have a gtx 970, an i7 6700 and a very good internet. My game simply freezes before opening any menus. It freezes and stops responding for a bit and its really frustrating. I use windows 10 and already put the game on the windows defender exclusion, so i dont know what to do.Kurigosh0 1d
1d Hearthstone freeze on startup Well, since a week or so the game does not start 5 out of 10 times. The launcher says game startet but i still see the desktop. When i press the mouse anywhere i suddently see a black screen, that turns white after a second and then windows ask me kill the application as it does not react. This repeats several times until i can enter hearthstone again. Running latest windows 10, no additional security software of any kind. Other Blizzard games start and run fine.Taur0 1d

1d Heroes of the Storm Cardback With Heroes of the Storm 2.0 coming out, my player level went from 9 to 12. Since the Hearthstone cardback is a reward for reaching level 12, I launched Hearthstone only to find out the cardback isn't there. Is this because I didn't actually go from level 11 to 12 but just jumped into it, or is this just a bug? I'd like to add the cardback to my collection.Markmata0 1d

1d Hearthstone crashes after searching for game So sometimes when I play on PC (I have no problems with mobile) Hearthstone just crashes after I search for game. I click the play button, the thing either freezes and then crashes or takes me to black screen with trying to reconnect on it and then crashes. This doesn't happen all the time, sometimes it just works fine but other times I just can't play. I had no problems with Hearthstone until like 4 days ago. I tried the repair thing in the deskop app but it didn't solve my problem. Thanks for your responses.Grox222CZ6 1d
1d Connection issues, and reconnecting issues... For 2 games in a row in arena, I got disconnected and was unable to reconnect. While I checked if my internet worked, it did. The second time I ran downstairs to connect to a cable to be sure, it only changed from reconnecting to the hazy screen. (what it did immediately the first time) I can understand it can just happen, but it now cost me 2 arena losses while I enjoyed excellent connections (also with HotS) the last days... Not sure if you guys can do anything, but you might just want to know! CheersPhoreon2 1d

3d Mobile disconnect issue Hi, Recently I am struggling with disconnect issues on my mobile phone. I noticed that other people are struggling with the same problem. The game disconnects several times during a game. After a while it won’t reconnect and close the game. This issue causes me to lose a lot of games I would have otherwise won, Notes: - I’m using a stable WiFi connection - I also use this WiFi connection for my pc. I experience no problems while playing on my pc - I’m not moving around with my phone during a game so this cannot be the cause of the problem - I noticed a lot of people are struggling with the same issue Is this problem caused by my phone or by the Blizzard app? - If it’s caused by my phone, is there a known fix? - If it’s caused by the Blizzard app (HS), I hope this topic will cause awareness duo to a ‘bug’. English is not my native language, so I hope my issue is explained in the correct manner. Have a very nice day! EDIT: Phone Sony Z2Seldrava1 3d
3d Old Card Backs Hello everyone, I was just wondering about this. Since I just started Hearthstone last month I only have a couple of card backs for the game. My question is however, is there a way or will there be a way in the future to get the card backs I missed in the months after release? Some of them look really cool and if there was a way to get them I would be very interested! Thanks for reading/answering in advance! Grtz Drake PS: apologies if this question was already asked.Drake3 3d
3d Game stuck at finding opponent. For the past hour the game is constantly and repeatedly stuck at finding an opponent screen. Game does not crash or freeze, it just keeps loading. When I close the game and reconnect, game is trying to reconnect me to a game. And after 10minutes of nothing happening on this screen, a message pops "you've lost your last ranked game due to a disconnect." I keep trying now in unranked mode. Restarted the computer, cleared HS cache, closed all tracking apps. Every other Blizzard app is working as normal. Can log normally from another PC in the same network. Blizzard, for the love of God, stabilize this bloody game.Discartor1 3d

4d Visual glitches/Crashes (on MacOS Sierra) Hey, I've been experiencing this bug for a long time (probably a year by now). Basically every now and then (probably every 2 hours of gameplay) the game starts to look really glitchy, making it really hard to play. All the animations are very 'pixely' and glitchy. Cards become unreadable. Eventually the game will just crash and I have to restart it. I uploaded a picture of my most recent crash. Thanks for reading!Airwalker4 4d

4d Graphical Issues with Hearthstone. OK , i just re-post this since it got deleted. Well Played there. For over a month now i got issues with Hearthstone on my PC. I have flickering, black boxes on boards and collection , Purple/Black chess missing texture etc.. I thought it was my hardware but since yesterday i upgraded my desktop to this : • OS : Windows 10 Pro x64 • Motherboard : MSI Z270 Gaming M5 • GPU : NVIDIA GeForce GTX980Ti MSi Gaming • RAM : 32 GB DDR4 Vengence Lpx 3200mhz • CPU : Intel Core i7 7700K @ 4.2 Ghz The only thing i kept from my old desktop is the SSD's and GPU, so im narrowing it down to them being the issue. SSD's: They are not the issue since i got 3 and i installed the game on all of them and it didn't make a difference. GPU: So it leaves me with the GPU being the culprit. Temps are fine they sit on 50c-55c when in playing the game. I do not have any graphical issues in other games. So its either a Faulty card or a compatibility issue with nvidia drivers and Hearthstone on the 980Ti. So im asking , is there anyone else out there with the same issue? Can i get a blue post on this? It frustrates me so much im fully demotivated to play the game.omniPotent1 4d
