Ever since today's update, hearthstone has been basically unplayable on the iPhone. From what I can tell, as soon as my opponent plays a card, the app crashes and I must restart and hope I make it back to the game before my turn ends. Has anybody else been experiencing this, know a fix, heard if a fix is a coming, etc. I've tried restarting the app and my phone. I use an iPhone 5 btw, which I thought could be a problem as its a pretty old phone by now, but Hearthstone has never had any performance issues on my phone until now.
I have a iPhone 6s on the latest iOS and I do have crashing issues but yours seems worse than the common issue. The common issue is that the app crashes on iPhones IF you tap the card that your opponent played to make it go away. With yours just crashing when they play a card is the worst I have seen so far.
Yep I also have the same issue on the 6s but like everyone said the only solution for now is just not click on your opponent's card and watch out the animation. I kept trying different methods and that seems like that's the only way your phone will crash during a game. :/ I also reinstalled Hearthstone and that's pointless because it will still crash. All you can do is be patient and wait for a fix. :/
Cannot start the game at all on Ipad4 / IOS 7 :( Have seen other reports of the game no longer starting on IOS 6
There really ought to be some sort of community beta testing programme before stuff gets rolled out. I can understand Blizz not wanting to invest heavily in mobile testing, but actually being locked out of the game, or having it left in a barely playable state because of a compulsory update is not a professional standard of support.
If Blizz need to deprecate older IOS version, bearing in mind that this will effectively lock out users of older / non-upgradeable devices, then there needs to be a significant acquiescence period to allow users to migrate off those devices.
I have had crashes experiences as well. For the past few days it has been crashing from time to time but whenever it crash I can just get back into the game so it was acceptable to me. Until today when I played arena and I was actually winning on my next turn. Next thing I knew it crash again and I thought I could go back into the game but instead my game was gone entirely. Not recorded at all. You know how frustrating that is?
