Hearthstone Battlegrounds has severe lag problems at this time. The recreation has at all times had its fair proportion of problems in the case of the quite a lot of animations and calculations going down within the background, but it surely’s worse than ever.
With the advent of elementals, the scaling conceivable from golden playing cards, and the APM Khadgar performs, you’ll most definitely begin to realize a large number of choppiness and body lag whilst enjoying Battlegrounds. Is there the rest you’ll be able to do to mend it? Not actually, until you are feeling like repeatedly restarting your shopper.
@BlizzardCSEU_EN Can you please repair the lag in HearthStone Battlegrounds? It began after the patch a few month in the past. Pirates & Elementals are unplayable for me. 😢

Different builds have extra problems than others. The scaling from Hogger or APM pirates makes the sport lag like loopy, and the Elemental animations quilt all the display. With no method to flip off animations in-game, the issue will possibly handiest worsen as extra minion varieties are added.
Blizzard hasn’t been ignoring the issue. There had been more than one hotfixes and patches which are designed to deal with the server and function lag, even though they haven’t precisely labored out too smartly. Just remaining week Blizzard introduced a hotfix to deal with in-game lag…which briefly proved to be nonetheless there.
The drawback additionally isn’t an easy one, no longer everybody studies the similar lag. Personally, the sport lags worse when making use of stat boosts to my whole board, but additionally when seeking to acquire/promote playing cards. The freezing makes some builds unplayable.
Lag additionally will get worse and worse in the event you play extra video games in a row. Usually, the primary recreation isn’t too laggy, however after going into some other fit it starts to get laggy once more. This is the place it’s possible you’ll wish to restart your recreation, even though that does remove from the joy.
Although Blizzard continues so as to add new content material to the sport on a horny common foundation, the Battlegrounds addition to Hearthstone plays poorly after each and every patch. Combined with the every so often irritating gameplay – death on flip nine ahead of finishing even part a construct – Battlegrounds is in a ropey patch.
Hopefully Blizzard can proceed to deal with the efficiency issues of extra patches sooner or later, and will paintings against making sure higher server steadiness and body price in-game. Here’s hoping.
