Before You Create a New Report


Before you create a new report, please enter the issue in the Issue Title field below to see if your issue has already been reported. It is a good idea to limit this to a few key words, like a card name or specific feature.

Example:  Shivan Dragon (Note: Partial words won’t bring up results, so use Shivan instead of Shiv)

If your issue has been reported already, click the vote button so that we know you've experienced that bug as well. You can also leave a comment if you'd like to add to the conversation about that bug or provide additional information you think might be useful. 

For New Reports


If your bug has NOT been reported, then please update the Issue Title field to represent the problem you encountered.

Example:  Shivan Dragon’s ability doesn’t work

Choose the Category that matches where the problem was.

Use the Describe Your Idea field to describe what happened.  Please use the following format:
  1. Summary of the problem
  2. A list of steps that led to the problem 
  3. The actual result
  4. What you expected or should have happened
Example:  

Shivan Dragon’s firebreathing doesn’t work.  Steps are:

  1. Attack with Shivan Dragon. 
  2. After it is blocked, try to pay 1 R mana to give it +1/+0
  3. Actual: It doesn’t get +1/+0 and stays a 5/5
  4. Expected: It becomes a 6/5
Finally, upload any screenshots or other information you might have that will help us investigate.  If you receive an error message that your attachment did not upload, please check to make sure it is smaller than 50 MB.

  1. Game automatically starts up when I reboot the computer

    1.   Give us the steps to reproduce the bug
      

      Start the computer

    2.   Note which platform you’re using (PC, Mac, Android, or iOS)
      

      PC

    3.   Enter the actual results you’re experiencing
      

      The game installed starts up and asks permission to install the game. You say yes, sure, then it will do something then takes you to the login page for the game.

    4.   Enter the expected results of the feature
      

      The feature I have in mind is when the computer reboots, an installer would NOT run, the game would not load, and I would not have to deal with this!

    5.   Add any relevant screenshots/videos

  2. MTGO Servers are Lagging compared to any online game, it appears there is a Server Optimization problem in 2021

    People online are claiming Arena and MTGO run on the same servers... which to me as a 2007 computer science minor from NYU, this suggests a mangement problem as they should not be on the same servers given MTGO should be running on whatever servers they had back in 2015 or so... MTGO is not Unity.. the two will have issues trying to be on the same servers.

    Arena runs fine... MTGO looses me seconds on a clock and I find myself being distracted by the lag issues that were not a problem back in 2012-2017...

    I have no idea…

  5. requesting format data

    When ever I open up the game it starts going through the loading process and stops abruptly at "Requesting Format Data." This has so far happened to a number of new players including me and I believe it is so related to the opening of new accounts in the game.

    Was playing a match against someone playing a Legacy Bomberman deck. Game 2.

    He moved to combo off, sacrificed a Ranger-Captain of Eos, and then Sacrificed a Lioneye Diamond.

    The game immediately crashed, played through the entire game again at an incredibly rapid speed, and then crashed and restarted - after the game started, neither of us could play cards, and it immediately moved to end step for all turns.

  9. Magic: The Gathering Arena Mobile Game Will Not Download To My Android Devices

    I have been trying to install the new mobile Arena and have been very unsuccessful. The Article at https://magic.wizards.com/en/mtgarena says that the app is android friendly, but it will not install on either of my android devices; see attached screenshots.

    Super excited to be possibly playing on my mobile's soon.

    Thanks.

  10. Computer freezes at "Loading Initial Scene"

    For the past two weeks, MTG Arena will not open. It sits at "Loading Initial Scene" and will not go further than that.

    This has occurred ever since the Strixhaven update was launched. Do I have to wait until the next set before this program works?

    Or am I permanently locked out of Arena? If I'm permanently locked out, I'd like a refund for the gems I have bought, and for my collection of wildcards.

  17. Magic Online "Out of Date" Error Message in Client

    MTGO won't allow sign on saying "out of date version. please close client and restart to downloaded latest version" which is followed and no new version has been downloaded. I've attempted uninstalling and re-installing and still run into the same error while attempting to sign in. I've tried rebooting the computer and the same issue happens.

    Playing commander, each player is complaining about how there is serious wait time after every action, making games unplayably slow. One player said its been happening for over 10 hours. (right now its 7:11 am pst 4/16/21)
