Battlegrounds, the latest addition to Blizzard’s card game Hearthstone, is sowing more chaos with a new update.
Bob the Bartender managed to rope in some new heroes into his tidy tavern:
- Sindragosa – Stay Frosty: At the end of your turn, Frozen minions get +1/+1.
- Elise Starseeker – Lead Explorer: When you upgrade Bob’s Tavern get a Recruitment Map.
- Brann Bronzebeard – Battle Brand: When you play a Battlecry minion, give a random friendly minion +1/+1.
- Sir Finley Mrrgglton – Power Up!: Give a random friendly minion +1/+1. After you sell a minion, refresh this.
To make way for some new challengers, the Heroes below have left Hearthstone Battlegrounds at this time. These heroes may return in a future update.
- King Mukla
- Millificent Manastorm
- Lich Baz’hial
The team has also buffed both Demons and Murlocs by moving Primalfin Lookout, Voidlord and Coldlight Seer down a tier while nerfing Junkbot that was a bit too strong for Tier 4 and has been moved up to 5.
We’ve made adjustments to the number of points given for first place. In the original system, you got 240 points for a first place on your first game, and 24 pts for a first place on your 150th (or later) game. Now, you will get 190 pts for a first place on your first game and 95 pts for a first place on your 150th (or later) game.
The next update is coming in early December and will likely contain more balance changes, a new heroes rotation, two new minions that are currently in the works (King Bagurgle, a brand-new card, and Floating Watcher, which you may recognize from the Goblins vs. Gnomes set), and the first iteration of the Stats feature.
