Ranked Ladder Is Back - 3 Free K&C Packs Next Week

Recommended Posts


The issues with the Ranked Ladder have been hotfixed and everyone can finally play Ranked games.

With the introduction of yesterday's Ranked Ladder update, there were immediately issues with progression and with everyone having random ranks. To compensate for more than 24 hours of Ranked mode being deactivated, Blizzard is giving all players three free Kobolds & Catacombs packs. Bear in mind that there are reports of the game still not depicting properly your actual rank.

We have implemented a hotfix for the issue that was affecting Ranked Play in all Hearthstone regions. To properly assess the scope of the issue, we had to temporarily disable Ranked Play while we worked on the hotfix. As part of the restoration process, some accounts may have received additional stars.

We understand this kind of downtime is disappointing for our community, and we apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. As a token of our appreciation for your patience, we’d like to offer everyone three Kobolds and Catacombs card packs. These card packs will be distributed next week and can be redeemed via the Gifting function either on the Battle.net Desktop App or by logging into your Battle.net account on your mobile device.

Everything should be working properly now and you can once again resume climbing the ladder in Ranked Play. We’re sorry for the disruption to your play experience and greatly appreciate your patience while we sorted it out! (source)

Because of these issues, Blizzard has decided to cancel today's live stream on the Year of the Raven. The devs have promised to answer our questions, but it's unsure whether it's going to be during a live stream or just a Q&A on Reddit.

Currently, the Hearthstone team’s primary focus is working to resolve the issues with Ranked Play as soon as possible. You can view the updates on this issue here

To focus on these issues, we will be cancelling the Year of the Raven developer livestream that was originally scheduled to take place on Friday, March 2. 

Your questions are very important to the team, and we would still like the chance to address them. If you have any additional questions you would like answered, please still definitely send them our way. You can do so by posting on the Year of the Raven announcement blog found here.

Thank you for your understanding, and we look forward to speaking more with our community soon. (source)

Yes thanks for the packs.

I am aware that people has lost rank climbing time. But the top  part of the ranks start a lot closer to legend. And they are normally the guys that need every minut.

I had the free Tavarn brawl run that took some time

I am just happy for the hot fix so that I did not go 4 ranks AND five stars down as it looked the first of March. Now I got my 5 stars back
