Mythic Constructed and Limited Leaderboard Issue

Last week, we encountered an issue that caused the Mythic Constructed leaderboard to work off incorrect player standings. After further investigation, we have found a similar issue that also impacted the Mythic leaderboard for ranked Limited play shortly after the release. You can read more on this and the adjustments we'll be making in the update to the July 2022 MTG Arena Ranked Season article.

Multiple Bug Fixes

Several updates and bug fixes were implemented with the 18.0 release—check out the patch notes for those if you haven't yet!
