In this article we’ll show you how to register on MTG Arena and get new account. We’ll also provide solutions to most common problems during registration.
First, you should download Arena here. Once you open it, you can click on the orange button with Register on it.
If you don’t see that screen, you’re probably on the login screen. If that’s the case, you want to click on the arrow on the left side of the Log In button. Then you’ll be able to click on the Register button.
MTG Arena Registration Step-By-Step
We’ll go with you over each step of MTG Arena registration. If you’re having problems with registration, this will help you see exactly what your problem is.
Birth Date and Country
First step is to enter your birth date and country. If you can’t proceed to the next step, it’s probably because you’re less than 13 years old. For example, if you’re registering on 03/16/2020, your birth date has to be on 03/15/2020 or before.
Display Name, Email and Password
Your display name must be between 3-24 characters long. Don’t use offensive words. Although the program might let you through, your account can get banned afterwards. Also, it’s just bad manners to pick an inappropriate username.
It probably goes without saying that you should use your actual email address. You’ll need it for activating your account and in case you forgot your password.
At the end you’ll see a check box asking you for permission that Wizards (company that makes Magic the Gathering) can send you promotional emails. We suggest you to check the box if you like getting information about current events and some occasional statistics about your account.
For example a few month back they sent everybody a mail with how many booster packs they opened in-game. Sometimes you’ll also receive a code for free in-game stuff.
Your passwords must contain at least:
- 8 characters
- 1 lower-case character (a, b, c,…)
- 1 upper-case character (A, B, C,…)
Your password must not contain:
- your display name
- your email
- same character repeated 3 or more times
Once you get all info in, just click Submit, and that’s it. You’ll get into the Tutorial immediately, but don’t forget to check your email for confirmation email.
