  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  14. Friend’s status becomes offline when their phone is locked

    I’m using an iPhone 11 Pro Max and my girlfriend uses an iPhone 7 Plus. We both open the game and I see her on my friends list as online. She leaves her phone for a while, it locks, and she becomes online on my friends list. She unlocks her phone with the game still active but she still appears offline in my friends list. She sends a challenge invite to me and I receive it, but when I tap on it (bottom left corner of the screen), the challenge disappears and she stills appear offline. She has to restart…

  15. 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…

  16. retrieving asset manifest

    The game just doesn’t start.
    Its stuck on „retrieving asset manifest“.
    The problem occurs on every device: iPad, iMac, Macbook.
    Workaround: Using a Phone-Hotspot.. but i wont spent any more money on extra-mb on my phone. Already spent too much on it for a „free to play“ game. This has to be possible via normal internet connection (wifi).
    Wish this bug could be fixed finally. No gaming until then.
    Sad & angry!
