Hearthstone’s latest expansion goes live with queue errors and Classic pack bugs

Hearthstone’s latest expansion, Forged in the Barrens, is now live in all regions, and unfortunately it’s not going as smoothly as fans had hoped. Players have been running headlong into a rather bad bug that’s preventing them from queuing for ranked games in Standard and Wild, and Blizzard has also disabled Classic pack opening because of another bug related to card drops.

It’s still possible to get into games because the bug preventing queuing doesn’t come up all the time, just quite a bit of the time. Unfortunately, it impacts not just multiplayer games but practice games against the AI as well, and there also appears to be a problem with decks in some game modes, as you can see in the image below, captured by our own Hearthstone expert Tim Clark.

Clark, who really ought to be working, tells me things have been improving gradually, although things are definitely still intermittent—your mileage may vary from moment to moment. Some community members are claiming that Golden Cards from the new Core Set packs are somehow triggering the issue. We haven’t confirmed that ourselves, but it’s something to keep in mind if you’re running into trouble.
