Check the Maintenance Progress

Update might be problematic (the last few had their share of problems), so if Arena doesn’t start as expected, make sure to check Wizards Customer Support’s Twitter for more info. They usually tweet once the maintenance starts, and once it is finished. There you’ll also find out about any potential delays.

Note, that you can also check MTG Arena Status Page. Game, Matches, and Logins systems all have to be operational before you can run Arena without problems. This time around, there’s no downtime expected, but you’ll have to restart the client to get the Midnight Hunt patch.
