MTG Arena crashing on Mac
First time playing on a Mac, the client crashes after every match I complete, then crashes on the next restart.
Just installed the game and it's glitchy and full of issues. Very disappointing as my first entry into Magic the Gathering
fix the mac client already
Happens on iPhone too
An update as to when you might release a program that doesn't crash after games? Pathetic service to date. Plenty of other card games out there, that work, that I'm happy to spend money on instead!
I'm experiencing the same problem. After most matches, after the victory or defeat symbols, the game crashes.
Same problem here since VoW came out. first the ongoing quick drafts which werent timed to end yet got force-resigned and now, whenever i start MTG arena via Epic Games and leave it open for a bit, it causes Kernel Errors dealing with the GPU that the Mac really only recovers from after restarting, even if MTG arena is closed after these errors have started(im on a MBP2017, with Mojave as the OS). No problems like this at all before this patch.
Same problem again now after updating to most recent client version.
Draft is unplayable on MacOS... crippling crashes mid game leave you with nothing to do but listen to the client tick down as time runs out
Same problem with imac and iOS 10.13. Uninstalled and reinstalled everything with no luck. I managed to get the music but no picture. Please help!!!

cannot launch the game since the most recent update
I play on MacBook Pro (15-inch, Early 2011) 10.13.6 (17G14042)
same issue, cannot launch the game since the most recent update
I play on Mac.
I played Wednesday evening, no problem. Didn't attempt to launch yesterday as work and things prohibited me from logging on. Woke up this morning to attempt to launch and run through the update that takes a bit of time, but the game will not launch. I have tried to launch from Epic Games and from just launching from "Finder" with no luck. The Arena start screen never comes up and I get the "Arena stopped running" failure.
I have uninstalled Arena from Epic Games. Uninstalled Epic Games launcher as well. Turned off Mac, unplugged Mac, waited 10 minutes, plugged Mac back in, held power button for 5 secs, heard the start-up sound, released power button, Mac started. Installed Epic Games launcher and Arena to only have the same issue.
Thank you for updating the failure/error reason. MTGA will not run on less than 10.13.x on the Mac.
I played Wed. night. woke up Thursday morning, tried launching Arena, and it won't launch says it needs to be uninstalled and updated. I did that, and now it won't luanch, but runs fine on my iPhone. Hire some skilled programmed for God's sake. WOC sucks.
Same crashes here. Today I played in 3 sealed tournaments. In each of them mtg arena crashed at least once, necessitating me to hard reboot and relaunch, and losing the game.
I tried to exit mtg arena and relaunching it between games, but it doesn't prevent the crashes.
When it crashes, the whole system crashes, with display stuck, or incoherent, and no access to any command.
It is very anoying, as it costed me rewards, and in the future it seems very random to pay any event.
My computer never crashes besides using mtg arena, which I reinstalled today.
So I up this thread, hoping for solutions to be found.
Ok, this seems to be the most popular ticket about this general issue that so many people have on Mac, including myselft, so lets give it another voice. And it gets very frustrating that after month, nothing seems to be done to fix it..
So in my case: Run the game and everything good, after something like 30 min, first signs of crashes with some freezing moment, my mac enters in loading mode where I can’t do **** except hearing my mtg timer going down till eventually, I lose the game.. So out of the 2 drafts I did by now, I lost 2 games because of this issue, and a third one very likely too because I managed to restart my computer and the game before my 2 timers ran down but I already missed one tour (!). Sometimes I even need to force my mac to shut down by holding the power button for 3 sec, as the whole system is crashing. My screen gets crazy and nothing respond..
Please developers team, work on this as we do spend real money to play your game on a regular basis and it is not acceptable to read an issue like that all around the internet for months and not see any sort of solutions..
I have a recent Mac pro 16”. No other app is running while I’m playing and I’m in the lowest graphic set up available.
For some reason doesn't seem to happen in brawl, but only drafts. Happens A LOT. Opened multiple tickets and received some refunds but zero progress. Draft is unplayable.
Big Sur, 2021 iMac (pre M1 chip), fully updated, rebooted, followed all of their suggestions.
OSX and iOS versions are currently unplayable. I have lost 2 draft games because of this. I think this is super unfair and I wish to have my draft token refunded.

I got the same problem as others here. It first it went great I got no problems, but after the last update a couple of days ago, I got glitches and the game crashes. Usually after that I need to restard my Mac because otherwise the glitches still gonna be there. Two times my MacBook even crashed. I would love to continue to play MTGA on my Mac. Since I got no other computer.
MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports)
2,3 GHz Dual-Core Intel Core i5
16 GB 2133 MHz LPDDR3
Intel Iris Plus Graphics 640 1536 MB
Crashed again today - completely froze my computer.
As of the latest update, this has gotten much worse. I'm lucky to get 2 games in before it crashes. It would be great to hear from someone at MTG Arena about efforts being made to fix this as it is basically unplayable and not worth spending time and especially money on right now.
