LOTI 270 : The InnBetween



What did you do this week?

Quests?  Ranked play?  Fun Guaranteed with friends?


  • Dean Ayala – Battlegrounds post
    • Apparently Hearthpwn was able to sit down and interview Dean Ayala at the Hearthstone Summit, and they posted one of the questions they asked.
    • “Are there any plans to introduce a leaderboard or a reward structure to the Battlegrounds game mode?”
      • First need to solidify the pipeline. Frequency, balance, content updates
      • The Dragon’s patch is like 75% to 85% of what they want a big content update to look like for Battlegrounds.
      • Maybe see that type of update every 3-4 months
      • Would like to add some progression systems, or goals.
      • However first they would like to add a 8 player lobby to play with friends or for tournaments
  • Dean also announced they are going to Un-Nerf several cards
    • 5 Wild cards
    • 4 Year of the Raven cards (which are rotating to Wild)
    • 1 Year of the Dragon card
  • Battlegrounds Undocumented Update
    • Changed the number of minions available in each tier
      • Tier 1 – From 18 to 16
      • Tier 2 – 15
      • Tier 3 – 13
      • Tier 4 – 11
      • Tier 5 – 9
      • Tier 6 – From 6 to 7
    • For instance for every Tier 1 minion, like Wrath Weaver, there are now 16 available minions among everyone that plays. For every Tier 6 minion, like Kangor’s Apprentice, there are now 7 minions available. These are minions that get taken out of the pool when drafted and returned to the pool when sold, or when the owner dies.
  • Patch supposed to come out today that fixes the Android issues along with several other bug fixes.  It also removed Tirion Fordring and replaces him with Queen WagToggle.
