"There was an error starting your game. Please wait a few minutes and try again." - Duels error

Barrens just launched and I can’t play any mode except BGs, getting this error.


I’m having the same issue. After several attempts I did get a ranked game to go through, but after it ended I’m back to getting the same error message again. So far ran into it playing Ranked, haven’t tried Duels, but it does appear that BGs are working.


I’m also having the same issue.

The same here. Cannot start a fight, either ranked or not.

Now that Forged in the Barrens has launched, I can’t play. I just get the “error loading, try again later” message. Regular ranked mode.

Don’t use golden cards, it works then for some reason.


This is actually true, just tested it

WIll try, unfortunately my duels deck is locked and I ONLY have golden versions of many of the new legendaries. Still would be better to play anything than nothing.

Tried this and nothing changed, same error. If anything the servers are swamped

Tried the no golden thing, it didn’t work.

I tried to play one of the new suggested standard decks in ‘practice’ and it tells me the deck is invalid. So this isn’t even a problem with the servers. There is something wrong with the new cards (I heard it’s core but who knows).

Swapped all golden cards and managed to get in after 2nd time … dunno if it helped.

Having problems starting any tipe of game, in practice even some heroes to choose to play againts show a purple colored box where the names should be and not able to play any type of match so far.

Rdu just said on his stream that both players has to have no golden cards in their decks for it to work. So you can affect it but can’t control what your opponent does.

I’m necro’ing this to add that I had the same problem, and once I checked my collections and fastly went through the various tabs to clear the new card badges (the numbers in the red dots indicating there were newly acquired cards) the problem was gone and the game restarted to work properly. So if you encounter this, just make sure you don’t have any ‘unseen’ new card in your collection.

Twice now that I have played DUEL and it just suddenly say THERE WAS AN ERROR STARTING YOUR GAME PLEASE TRY LATER.

The first time i have to retire which is a waste of PRECIOUS GOLD! It happened to me just now as well, and i dont want to waste gold again. Please resolve and compensate. Thank you.

I cant Even play standard :frowning:
