Severe Lag in Gameplay
In any match after a certain number of cards are in the graveyard or exiled from game, there is a significant amount of gameplay lag that it makes playing continuing the match impossible. I cant get a capture of it because of the amount of lag. I know its not my PC. I have an i7 4.9GHz, 20Gb DDR4 RAM, 2TB SSD, windows 10 pro. PLEASE FIX!
Its Extremely Slow Play, Beyond any human Behavior, The lag is Both Ways, to respond, interact or even to cast a simple sorcery speed spell, finally opponent timed out but i needed to reconect (closing the game and opening again, 3 times)
It sounds like you may need some more troubleshooting advice, please submit at: https://mtgarena-support.wizards.com/hc/en-us/requests/new and select 'Technical Troubleshooting'.
Also have been experiencing this issue since beta and it seems it still needs addressing. Anywhere between 30mins to a couple hours of gameplay will eventually result in the gameplay screen suddenly slowing way down and becoming very choppy/lagged out. Due to this your mouse clicks won't register most of the time, you'll misclick or pick up the wrong card and play incorrectly causing a game/match loss.
Please take a look at this as I believe it is one of the most pressing issues with the game due to forcing users to restart the game and/or computer and potentially losing matches through no fault of their own.
1) Play game for at least 30mins to 2hrs
2) Game screen itself will start to lag out, but sometimes it only happens on the sideboarding screen during a Traditional match...then the game screen reverts back to normal upon play
3) If you concede and start a new match it will sometimes be OK, but only for a short while and the timeframe between lag-outs shortens until you restart the client.
It seems to me like it happens after a long play session, the longer the session the more the lag. Either a memory leak, or something relating to how long you've been playing or how many matches you've played or something. Closing the client and reopening it resolved the issue each time.
Here's today's lag file. :P Er, log file... And one from yesterday, too, for good measure. Both logs captured after several hours of play, and the game was lagging badly.
