Patch 17.2 added New Battlegrounds Heroes and a new minion

The 17.2 patch includes three new Heroes and a new minion for Battlegrounds. We’ve also added the ability to rearrange your decks, a new visual aid for end of Season rewards, and more!

As a note, we’ve restructured assets in 17.2 so the data download for this patch will be similar to a fresh install. Pardon our dust!

Battlegrounds Updates
  • Dire Wolf Alpha has been removed from the minion pool.

NEW MINION

Rabid Saurolisk

  • [Tier 1, Beast] 3 Attack, 1 Health.

After you play a minion with Deathrattle, gain +1/+1.

Kael’thas Sunstrider

  • Verdant Spheres [Passive]: Every third minion you buy gains +2/+2.
Deck Ordering
SURPRISE!

You can now reorder your deck lists! While viewing your deck list in the Collection Manager, press and hold a deck button to enter “rearranging” mode. Once you’re in rearranging mode, just click and drag on your decks to order them! Deck rearranging will not work until all nine starting heroes (excluding Demon Hunter) are unlocked.

Zephrys the Great Improvements
  • Fixed a bug where Zephrys would miss lethal when there was an enemy Taunt minion with Lifesteal that you could attack into.
  • Fixed a bug where Zephrys would prefer not to transform/Silence certain high-stat Deathrattle minions (such as Waxadred).
  • Fixed a bug where Zephrys could miss lethal using Unleash the Hounds.
  • Fixed a bug where Zephrys would not offer Silence options for minions with the “Can’t Attack Heroes” effect.
  • Zephrys is now slightly less likely to offer single-target removal for next turn.
  • Zephrys will no longer offer Natalie Seline for next turn.
  • Zephrys may now offer Polymorph instead of Hex in a few cases where it would be better for your opponent to have a 1/1 than a 0/1 with Taunt.
  • Swipe will now fill the AoE category (instead of single target damage) if Zephrys expects it to be used against the enemy hero.
  • Improved how Zephrys evaluates enemy minions that have low base stats for their cost, but are buffed.
Game Improvements and Bug Fixes
  • End of Season rewards

Your total rewards accumulated within the current Ranked season are now highlighted inside your Rewards Chest, which can be found at the top of the Quest Log.

  • Collection Manager filter panel (mobile)
  1. The filter panel will now remain open after using Search.
  2. The filter panel will now hide once cards are dragged to a deck and will reappear after they’ve been added.
  3. The filter panel will no longer be dismissed until the “Done” button has been pressed.
  • Card text for Teron Gorefiend has been updated to be more technically accurate: “Destroy all other friendly minions. Deathrattle: Resummon them with +1/+1.”
  • Dr. Boom’s Lethal Puzzles 3-4 and 4-4 can now be completed.
  • Astromancer Arwyn’s Mirror Puzzle 6-7 can now be completed.

2020 POKÉMON CHAMPIONSHIP SERIES CANCELED

The safety and well-being of our competitors, organizers, employees, local communities, and partners continues to be our top priority and is the primary consideration with every decision we make. 

After careful review and according to guidance set forth by local, regional, and national health authorities, as well as the World Health Organization and Public Health England, The Pokémon Company has made the difficult decision to cancel the 2020 Pokémon World Championships (scheduled for August 14–16 in London, United Kingdom). 

Along with the announcement of the cancellation of the “2020 Pokémon World Championships”, it is with a heavy heart that The Pokémon Company will cancel the “2020 National Championships”, “Regional League” and “Town League” for the safety and health of the participants.

Priority rights to participate in the “National Championships” obtained in the 2020 seasonal matches or the rights obtained from other events will be transferred and become valid for each seasonal match in 2021.

The re-implementation of future official matches will be determined carefully by complying with policies and instructions of the government and related agencies, and will be announced through Facebook and other official accounts. Further details are being actively worked on and we will communicate them with all of you as soon as they are finalized.

“The Pokémon World Championships” will take place next year in London. We hope that in order to face the peak match of the Pokémon Card Game next year, we will be able to see players who fight eagerly at the event in each store that sells Pokémon cards, Gym, and official matches.

Thank you for your continued support and understanding.

3 Major Things in Hearthstone Year of the Phoenix

Join us as we bid farewell to the Year of the Dragon and welcome the Year of the Phoenix! 

The new Hearthstone Year will kick off with Ashes of Outland, which takes place in the shattered and war-torn world that was the setting for 2007’s World of Warcraft: The Burning Crusade. This exciting expansion set aims to shake up the meta game with a set of powerful new cards alongside Hearthstone’s first-ever all new class. . .

1. New Class, The Demon Hunter

Are you prepared? The Year of the Phoenix will introduce Hearthstone’s first new class since launch: The Demon Hunter. Driven by fury and vengeance, the Demon Hunter excels at unbridled aggression, exemplified by its Hero Power Demon Claws, a one mana-cost single-turn boost to the hero’s Attack, designed around robust synergies with its class cards. Demon Hunters also have access to cards with the Outcast keyword, which become more powerful when played from the right- or leftmost position of your hand.

Illidan Stormrage, The Demon Hunter

The Demon Hunter is a full-fledged, permanent class free for all Hearthstone players who complete the Demon Hunter Prologue missions, which retells Illidan Stormrage’s origin story from his perspective . . . and with a Hearthstone twist. Players will also receive, free, all 10 Demon Hunter Basic cards, as well as a 20-card Demon Hunter Starter set. Starting with Ashes of Outland, players can expand their collections with 15 new Demon Hunter cards, with 45 in total being planned for the Year of the Phoenix across the year’s upcoming three expansions.

2. New Legendary, The Prime

New to Ashes of Outland, Primes are powerful minions who shuffle a vastly-upgraded version of themselves back into your deck when they’re taken off the board. Every class save the Demon Hunter has its own unique Prime, like the Warrior minion Kargath Bladefist. An aggressive 4 mana 4/4 with Rush in his starting form, Kargath upgrades into Kargath Prime, an 8 mana 10/10 with Rush, who grants you 10 armor whenever he kills an enemy minion.

3. Beware of the Imprisoned Demon

Ashes of Outland also introduces Imprisoned Demons, who come into play “dormant” for two turns. Initially unable to attack and impervious to any threats, these powerful minions unleash tempo-shifting effects once they’re activated, with the potential to swing the outcome of a match.

Kael’thas Sunstrider

Kael’thas Sunstrider, a Legendary neutral minion, is also breaking free in Ashes of Outland, will enter Hearthstone a month early! All players can log in on March 18 to receive the Lord of the Blood Elves and harness his unique power—with Kael’thas in play, your third spell every turn is free.
