Hearthstone May 10, 2022 Hotfix – Mercenaries Darkshore Bounty Fixed

Patch 23.2 launched earlier today, but it has introduced some serious issues that prevented people from playing. In particular, anyone who tried to start the new Mercenaries bounty in Darkshore zone got locked out of the game.

This has been fixed, alongside with a few smaller bug. If you were stuck in Darkshore, you might need to retire the bounty first before you can start playing again.

The hotfix is currently being rolled out in all regions, which means that it might take up to a few hours to be distributed. If you don’t see it yet, just wait some more time.

They’re also working on the bugs that blocked some players from logging and [card_lin name=”Call to theĀ  Grave”] bug.

5/10 Update:
The team is currently in the process of launching a server-side emergency hotfix that will include the following fixes:

  • Fixes a bug that caused Mercenaries crashes in the Darkshore zone. The Darkshore zone should now also be unblocked. Players who were already stuck in the Darkshore zone may need to retire their Bounty before they can continue.
  • Fixes a bug that was causing players to receive several notifications for Mercenary unlocks they already had.
  • Fixes the bug that broke Deck of Lunacy, Cheesemonger, Enchanted Cauldron, and cards with those similar effects.

The hotfix is expected to take a few hours to be distributed to all regions, but should update automatically when it hits your server. Separately, the team is still actively working on the Call to the Grave bug and the bug that is blocking some players from logging in.
