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 Desktop App or by logging into your 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

      The single-player adventure, introduced along with the Rastakhan's Rumble expansion, is now available in all regions.
      The Rumble Run is very similar to the Dungeon Run and the Monster Hunt, in the sense that you will face eight opponents and you will build your deck as you progress using card bundles, passives and powerful minions exclusive to this game mode.
      Your hero will always be Rikkar, a young Troll champion eager to prove himself. In the beginning of your run, you will be offered three different Shrines (more on them in the next paragraph) from three different classes. This initial decision basically equals to you picking a Class for this run. The other eight classes will be your opponents.

      Shrines exist as minions on the board and they have powerful effects. Each class has three different Shrines and each starting Shrine comes with a complementary deck of 10 minions that synergise with it. When a Shrine dies, it goes dormant for 3 turns and its effect isn't active until it comes back to life.
      Subsequently, you will build your deck using card bundles, neutral passive abilities and class-specific minions exclusive to the Rumble Run.
      If you finish the Rumble Run once with any class, you will earn this card back:

      Good luck on this new adventure and we'll soon have a detailed guide on it!

      This new Tavern Brawl features the deck recipes from Rastakhan's Rumble.
      With Rastakhan's Rumble being released last week, we were bound to get a Tavern Brawl like this. So pick a hero and you get the premade Rastakhan's Rumble deck recipe for the class you chose.
      Here are the decks:
      Druid: Feral Frenzy Hunter: Animal Instincts Mage: Power of the Dragonhawk Paladin: Shirvallah's Chosen Priest: Surrender to Madness Rogue: Cursed Crew Shaman: Big Bad Voodoo Warlock: Reckless Ritual (Discard) Warrior: Wings of War (Dragons) Good luck!
