Noxious' Slight Tweaks to Unused Cards
We've all got those cards sitting in our collection that just seem to not fit into any viable deck, and Noxious has some ideas of his own to make them better. Take a look at Mana Addict, when was this card ever viable outside of some Miracle Rogue decks? Well there was that one budget Mage deck from last July..
Hey dude, do you have any estimate of when hearthstone will be released for android phones? This year! (Ben Brode)
Any ideas [internally] to do something about [players who let the rope burn out when they have no mana or cards]? Yeah it's something we have been discussing. Nothing planned for the short term yet, though. (Ben Brode)
Do you think Big Game Hunter is a bit too much? Most decks that aren't aggro or early run one automatically. I think it’s good that if you expect a certain meta you can tune your deck to beat it. (Ben Brode)
Just curious. Are Hearthstone employees allowed to play ranked games? What if one accidentally qualifies for BlizzCon haha? Yes, but they can’t qualify. (Ben Brode)
This is a fan creation and is not official cards which are coming into the game. Just for fun!
We're already seeing some great new threads in the Fan Creations forum we put up this week! RevutionaryArtillery has created some unique card concepts that revolve around various cities in Warcraft. Cities are cards which have no attack value and have a unique card interactions. What do you think?
New Patching Method
You may have noticed a download today when you started up your Hearthstone client and got into the game. This added the January Card Back to the client.
Some of you might have noticed a new “downloading files” notification for Hearthstone.
We wanted to let you know that this update was applied as part of a test we performed for a new, more agile method of patching. The downloaded files themselves made no alterations to Hearthstone gameplay.
We’ll always do our best to make sure you know about important changes to Hearthstone in advance. We’ll see you at the Inn!
Missing Friends Issue

As well, please do not attempt any "fixes" for resolving the issue. This will help us in further investigating the matter and coming up with a resolution. Thanks!
Do you guys have any friends that appear blank or show as "retrieving details/info” in any other games?
