    I'm an Arena and Battlegrounds fan so maybe I'm a little biased, but I really don't enjoy seeing:







    You open up modes to find Arena, Solos, Duels and Tavern Brawls. Would it have been so much to ask to split the 4 main bars into 1/8's and also add in practice mode to make up the 8th? 


    It just seems clumsy and rushed to me. I feel it's tacky and out of place. They should know better and I hope they change it soon!

    Offended? No, because that is too strong of a word choice for me personally. Semantics aside, to open the Hearthstone app and seeing the Hearthstone game mode does feel truly weird, almost like opening a Matroesjka doll. They probably could have chosen a more suitable word like: Constructed.

    I am not offended (why should I it's a game after all) though I consider the whole UI to be well let's say far from optimal. I get the point that the box is somewhat iconic (is it really?) but I think that this is a rather weak argument. One of the key principles of modern design is that form follows function. In this case it is the other way round. Imo bad design but nothing to be offended about (slightly annoyed maybe).

    P.S. I bet that they will not change it any time soon

    English is not my native language, so please excuse occasional mistakes

    Thats because most ppl are missing the actual point in this new Layout:


    HS is a video game, Battlegrounds is another and Mercenaries will be another different game as well. Think of it as HS on Battlenet client is just another client that spawns 3 different games that are linked together in terms of themes.


    Tavern Brawls Duels Arena are just Modes,  variations of HS constructed

    I don't understand how anyone could be offended over something as trivial as this. I've been playing this game for 4 years and I wasn't bothered by it in the slightest. It's not like they completely hid the other modes; all you have to do is click "Modes" and you'll find the rest there. Besides, Tavern Brawl has been dead for a loooong time, so removing it from the main menu just feels right. Does anyone still get excited over Tavern Brawls?

    This is just another instance of people hating on change. You'll get used to it, it's really not that big a deal.
