The Rise of Mech Patch

The Rise of Mech patch went live yesterday, for desktop users. The mobile update was scheduled to release today at 9 am PDT (12 pm EDT).

Arena Went Down

Via CM Mary Anne Lee on the official forums

There was some sort of issue with yesterday’s patch so Arena was taken offline for most of the day. Arena is now back up. Side note for mobile users: If you haven’t already updated, the 14.4 update can take over an hour to finish on mobile.

Original post:

We’ve identified an issue with Arena caused by the most recent Hearthstone update, which requires us to temporarily disable the game mode. During this time, Arena will not be available for play. Please check back on this thread for progress updates on the issue.

The Fix:

10:36 pm PDT on June 3

We’ve resolved the issues with arena mode and expect to make the mode available again shortly after this post goes live.

The 14.4 update for mobile will now begin at or around 9am PDT tomorrow morning, June 4. The update will take some time to complete, so please allow an hour or so to see the update reflected on your device. We will provide updates during this time as well so you know when to expect to see the game live.
