    Thanks! I'm still recovering from covid (been out all week really) and left quickly after the stream ended to get some more rest in. (I've found that I can now get some stuff done in shorter bursts instead of just being completely devoid of energy). I should have proofread better!

    Congratulations on 100, Demon!

    It's great to see something start out no more than the simple idea of shining the spotlight on great content the Hearthstone community is creating, evolving into a series that has crossed into other titles and even debuting your own homegrown game. It's also great because not too many series on the site make it even close to 100, the only other "series" that has definitely done that is our usual Weekend Wild Decks from Frosty.

    Cheers to the achievement and another 100!

    Anime wins in Japan is my guess. Warcraft isn't very flashy in that sense.

    I agree, I think it should be on the user to decide if they want to sacrifice their battery juice in exchange for more FPS. I also understand though there is no perfect solution when Blizzard refuses to add proper settings to the game client, and defaulting to saving people battery life is probably the smart thing to do - Windows laptops just run horribly to begin.

    This should work but many phones even with a high refresh rate display default to capping your frames to 60, requiring an option change in your settings somewhere.

    We should be doing a dedicated post for them now that we've got them in our database. Some changes prevented us from rendering cards when the patch hit - that's been fun to figure out.

    Five new collectible hero skins in total though!

    There are also a bunch of Battlegrounds Skins too (this includes the skins + new heroes)

    What's the point of what, Blizzard releasing a new game? Us covering some mobile Blizzard news?

    What's the point of being negative?

    Doesn't look like it, will require an emulator.

    The offer is going to be available for ~30 days and then go away forever. Prime Gaming offers only last for a month after they are available, but in the case of Hearthstone, there will be more opportunities down the line for more stuff. If you haven't activated a trial yet, I'd wait!

    100% Agreed.

    It would be such a great way to celebrate the upcoming set. So much better than the theorycrafting streams where people can't actively participate. Bonus points if you award players a pack for that expansion in the brawl as well.

    Yeah, seriously.

    • We didn't get one during Alterac Valley, fine.
    • United in Stormwind's was a month late.
    • Forged in the Barrens was a week after launch.

    I hope this isn't a one-off and they use this opportunity to do something good right after an expansion drops. Let people test out the cards!

    Yeah, this has to be a mistake by Blizzard. I haven't even opened my packs yet and I wouldn't be surprised if there are other people that need to login, open packs, and buy the tavern pass.

    That's great to see you got a golden finley though. That's the ultimate value!

    Okay but they don't charge it if you cancel, so it is free.

    I removed references in your comment to the domain in question.

    While it is indeed a reference to the album, Blizzard really should not be promoting something that looks like a domain name that goes to adult content.

    My assumption is they've looked at the whole upcoming year to make those adjustments. No point in unnerfing something if they have to nerf it again in 4 or 8 months.

    I've always wanted to dive into this as a topic. My memory could be bad considering it's only been a million years since Hearthstone came out, but I remember them printing such varied strategies for each class every set and there were definitely cards that didn't look like they fit anywhere but then they did.

    It feels like to me Hearthstone just doesn't have much of that anymore. They print tools for the 1 or 2 archetypes they want to establish for that year and then leave it at that. Granted, it would take an entire year to make things feel right by printing varied things (you'd need the next rotation to hit to properly fix that). I think the biggest problem there is that the power level can become less predictable when you no longer have your sights on 1 or 2 goals.

    FWIW we don't have this documented anywhere but the "carb" bbcode works to link ingredients and "meal" embeds meals, much like our card and deck bbcodes work.

    Update: We now have confirmation that these legendaries are from Standard. Wait until the expansion launches to claim your loots.

    Quote From Amy Jantzer

    It is a Random Standard Legendary. When you claim it, the Legendary will be from one of our standard sets at the time of claiming it. So if you claim before April 12th it will not include ones from the Sunken City expansion.
