  • Do you have any plans for new emotes or emote customization?


        • We have added special hero emotes for events like the fireworks in last year’s Fire Festival and also recently updated emotes for mirror matches. We want to keep doing similar things! We don’t have any plans to change the base emotes though.


  • Are there any updates on future game modes, like a co-op or multiplayer feature, 2 vs. 2, or 2 vs. AI?


        • We’re always experimenting with different ways of doing these in Tavern Brawls and Fireside Brawls, and plan on continuing those experiments at some point in the future. The challenge for us is to really figure out what makes them fun and interesting. The few of our crazy ideas that survived our play tests have gone on to become some of our best brawls and single player content. And let’s not forget the upcoming in-game tournament mode—the ability to use multiple decks in an online tournament with a group of friends is very appealing to us.


  • Will you be looking at making more minion Types like Kobolds or Spirits?


      • Some of our best theme decks are built around minion Types. Elemental decks, Murloc decks, Mech decks all hinge on the minion Type and are a great starting point for deckbuilders. However having too many minion Types can cause collisions, where one card looks like it could be several different types. If you see a Demon wearing an eye-patch, do you expect it to be Pirate or Demon? What about a mech that looks like a bear? Would that be a Beast or a Mech? We run into these issues a lot, and they will come up more if we add more Types to the game. We have looked at adding new Minion Types before, such as when we playtested a Cultist minion Type when we designed C’thun for Whispers of the Old Gods, but this is not something that we have plans for just yet.


Espo Mode

A Less Friendly Game of Chess

How it Works

  • Build a deck using six cards. No duplicates are allowed.
  • You will be given either the White King or Black King. Your health is 20, the heroes are the same.
  • Most chess pieces cannot attack normally. They automatically hit minions or heroes that are directly in front of them.
  • Your hero power allows you to Discover a chess piece.
  • Positioning is key. You’ll get the best value if your minions are between his as they will hit two targets instead of one.
  • Unlike other versions of Chess we can play, your 6 cards are put into your deck and can help you out!
  • Death Knight cards are “Banned”
