i tried all of the solutions to no success. please help meeee
Let's check to see if the permissions are all square for both Hearthstone and the Battle.net App. Make sure to close out the Battle.net App first and wait about a minute or so for the background processes to shut down as well.


    1. Using Finder, navigate to the /Applications directory.
    2. Right-click the Hearthstone game folder and select Get Info.
    3. In the info box, go to the Sharing & Permissions section and click on the lock to unlock it. Enter your administrator password when prompted.
    4. Make sure all privileges are set to Read & Write.
    5. Click on the Action icon cogwheel and select Apply to all enclosed items. Select Yes to confirm the action.


Note: Step 5 must be done, even if the folder already displays Read & Write privileges. This helps ensure all enclosed files have the same permissions.


Once that's done, we're going to check the Battle.net App's permissions as well.

    1. Open Terminal, located in /Applications/Utilities.
    2. Type or copy and paste the following command for Battle.net:
    chmod 0754 ~/Library/Application\ Support/Battle.net
    3. Hit Return.


Give those a shot, launch the app again, and let me know if that gets it going again.
