cant direct challenge. We both entered each others details and set game up the same way. (best of one and coin flip) still would not connect.
Been having issues playing ‘direct challenge’ games with my partner. It was fine before the recent updates, and its really frustrating that this issue continues to persist for about a week now. Please assist to rectify this soonest as it was MTG Arena that got us back to reigniting our interest in the game.
My friends and I are having a lot of problems issuing challenges to each other. The challenges don't get received, Messages don't seem to be sent. We still haven't narrowed it done, but most of the issues seem to be from a player on an Android phone.
This is really frustrating.
Still broken, direct challenges, friend list challenges, nothing works. MTG could be such a great game, but the client is by far the worst I have seen.
Tried initiating a challenge (various modes) through the friend list as well as through the direct challenge icon, typing in my friend's full username. We both tried challenging each other and awaiting a notification from the other person. We also tried each initiating a challenge simultaneously. None of it worked. And challenging each other at the same time would create a network error as described by others in the comments here - with the only fix being to close the game and restart. All done from Windows PCs, no phones or tablets.
This will be a three-year-old problem in just over two weeks. Wizards of the Coast made $1.3 billion in revenue in 2021. Their customer service's response to flagging the problem was to show me that it had already been flagged here.

For two years, I have tried to Direct Challenge to play a casual format I love with people on discord. I have confirmed every time that I am inputting everything correctly. The screen goes to the avatar waiting for the other to connect, and it never connects. I can only connect using friend request. And since this casual community prefers Direct Challenge, I am not accepted without doubting my understanding of how DC works. Please Help!
Having the same issue currently. Cannot direct challenge my son or add him as a friend. He is having the same issue as well. Both playing on PC.

I have the same issue, and when it does go through it will not allow me to select a deck. Sometimes it will say select deck or cancel challenge and neither works
In my case, there would be an error message when I attempted to select a deck, and in some cases this led to the server not responding to the app indefinitely. This happened to me using a phone and a computer. I tried uninstalling the app on my phone and reinstalling and the same thing still happened. I would be very appreciative if you solved this issue.

Same as Sammy's comment: We both challenge each other and nothing happens!
Hope we can get an answer or the issue may be resolved soon!
Did this today with a mate, for BO3 Traditional and it also chopped 8 cards from sideboard of deck we tried to submit.
I am having the same Issue. I want to help my friends test their decks and I cant. Please help.
I have the exact same problem. We used to be able to challenge (the bug happened once before then it worked again the day after) but now nothing happens when either of us direct challenge from the in-game friends list.
Have restarted pc, logged out and logged in to account.
cannot direct challenge, i have try many time when i do tourney with MTGMelee. some time its work but almost time its not working.
Same! I'm also unable to receive or send challenges. I go through typing their name with their #number, and they never receive the challenge.
We both challenged each other and nothing happens at all.
3/3/2021 and still can't direct challenge. Both players are on Android phones and all information is correct. It goes to the waiting screen and just stays there.
I was able to challenge my fiance who is next to me why cant i challenge his uncle who is couple miles away from us? We both on phone version.
This happens only for MISHAP#56589.
There is nothing wrong with adding other friends and direct challenge.
Cannot see my friends list and connect direct challenge anyone.
I cannot direct challenge an opponent or add them as a friend.
