Today’s update to MTG Arena is causing major performance issues during its installation, resulting in players continually being disconnected from matches.

Despite Wizards of the Coast resolving several performance issues in the Oct. 18 MTG Arena update, the problem of players being disconnected continues during today’s scheduled maintenance.  

The present update includes a Brawl Launch event starting this weekend and the ban of Field of the Dead going into effect. And while the issue of players being disconnected was supposed to be resolved in the Oct. 18 update, the problem is still occurring. 

During Mythic Championship V, several players reported on Twitter that they were disconnected during matches. Nothing major resulted from the disconnects and Lucas Berthoud later reported that the disconnects were due to internet problems, not client issues within MTG Arena

But now, the disconnects are back and the problem has become even more widespread since a massive amount of reports from players are flooding in.

Patch notes for the Oct. 24 MTG Arena update will be available once the scheduled maintenance is complete. 

Update 10/24/2019 at 3:30 CT

All systems are now operational in MTG Arena. If players are still experiencing disconnects and other performance issues, please report them to WotC via the Report a Bug tab under settings in MTGA.
